N. Korea sentences U.S. student to 15 years of hard labor: Xinhua

    North Korea has sentenced a detained American to 15 years of hard labor.
    But given the North′s history of using detained Americans to bring in high-profile figures, this seems to be another bid for attention.
    Connie Kim fills us in.
    North Korea has sentenced another American,...China′s official Xinuhua news agency reported Wednesday Otto Warmbier has been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for crimes against the state.
    Xinhua said North Korea′s Supreme Court handed down the sentence to the 21-year-old student from University of Virginia, who is accused of stealing a propaganda banner from Yanggakdo International Hotel.
    Warmbier had entered North Korea as a tourist in late December but was arrested on January 2nd while he was trying to leave.
    He confessed to the crime in an emotional press conference last month.
    His claims have not been verified... and other people detained in North Korea have been known to have retracted their confessions after their release.
    ″I regret my actions more than anything. I apologize to both the Korean people and the government. I beg for forgiveness and I beg for help in any way possible to save my life.″
    News of the sentence came as veteran U.S. diplomat Bill Richardson was meeting with North Korean officials at the UN headquarters in New York on Tuesday to push for Warmbier′s release.
    Detaining and jailing U.S. citizens have been North Korea′s way of drawing high-profile visits, including one by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
    Warmbier is one of three Americans currently detained in the North.
    However, his imprisonment comes just after heavy UN sanctions were imposed on the North following its nuclear and ballistic missile tests.
    Pyongyang could see Warmbier′s detention as a valuable political tool for ratcheting up tensions... amid its threats of another nuclear provocation.

    You have to be a fucking idiot to try to steal something in North Korea. If you go there, I think you've heard about the country. If you've heard about it you should know not to act afool in that place. And then you cry like a bitch because your actions have consequences.

    @1:37 On the far side of the room, row closest to the middle. The 4th man, black tie black jacket, and red hair? Faces can be mistaken for other nationalities, especially in fuzzy images, but that man's jawline is chiseled differently. And hair hair is red. There is also a women sitting in the middle row on the other side of the room with blonde hair and a face that does not quite blend.. although it was much less striking then the man with red hair and an irish face. It could be a Leprechaun...

This fat fuck dictator needs to go. We need to capture this ugly fuck before he has a kid who will one day replace him and continue to evil regieme. This pisses me off so bad. I want to go to North Korea and shit all over pictures of kim. and rub my ballsac on his desk. maybe after a nice run so theyre all moist and smelly. i cannot believe this world we live in. What is the point of this shit. why do we allow this lard to continue this tirade. It's time for Kim to get whats coming to him. Hell awaits you kim.

      Don't get me wrong, I hate Kim as much as you do, and 15 years is definitely over the top, but this was definitely a stupid move for that guy. He knew he was in a different country, therefore different and harsher rules. You can't just disrespect/rebel in another country without expecting consequences be it North Korea or not.

    North Korea, where you get 15 years for accidently sneezing on a Portrait of a fat dictator. But can brainwash an entire country into worshipping you like you are a god, starve your citizens, flex your weak ass military at powerhouses and threaten to blow up the entire world and still be able to choose what outfit you want to wear today. It's okay kim, enjoy your freedom here on earth cause hell awaits you fat fuck.

    What is wrong with some people. Travelling to North Korea itself poses a risk because you can get arrested for the craziest reasons. Despite knowing that, this guy still chose to steal some stupid banner?? There is a huge difference between being a risk taker versus shooting yourself in the foot. Nevertheless, I still pity him for losing 15 years of his youth in that hell.

His stupid ass deserves what they gave him. Now maybe he'll serve as an example to all the other western tourists that think everywhere is just like Disneyland, where you can treat the people that work there like shit and have no respect for the rules. Not everything is a big joke or game all the time, especially in North Korea where life is cheap as dirt.
