University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier has been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor after stealing a propaganda sign from a hotel.
Video of the incident, as well as Warmbier’s sentencing, was released yesterday:
Warmbier has been held in North Korea since January. The U.S. has urged North Korean authorities to release him on humanitarian grounds. Warmbier was visiting North Korea as part of a tour group.
Looks like another college student thought he had rights he did not have. He goes into a country in which he should have been aware is hostile and steals.
