    What?????? I don't understand.... If the US was able to retrieve Otto when he was sick, why couldn't they get him BEFORE? Was his crime trying to steal a propaganda poster from the hotel?

    It's sad what happened to thus young man but this same thing goes on in prisons here and it's not reported or talked about. We can't complain about another countries morals, justice or prison system until we clean up our own backyard here.

    North koreans have no hearts. they don't have a culture of principal or compassion.

    How is this possible? Isn’t Kim un Jong Trump’s best buddy? Didn’t Trump say to us that Kim un Jong had nothing to do with that young Americans’s capture and subsequent death, so Trump believed him? Wake up, America!!! Don’t you see something wrong with this scenario? Do you really believe Trump’s on our side? He will sell us out to the highest bidder.....

    You don't expect a country to treat you with kid gloves all because you are a citizen of USA.

    I’m sorry for the family in their loss of Otto, but I just can’t fathom how an American, presumably an intelligent American, might think it’s a good idea to go to the DPRK in the first place.
