North Korea…Virginia College Student Sentenced To 15 Years Prison/Hard Labor…For Taking A Political Banner At His Hotel…

First off I have been critical to Americans every time this happens when Americans find themselves detained by the North Koreans either by crossing into the country by accident or doing something as stupid as stealing a sign/political banner. Sure it maybe way extreme to be sentenced 15 years for taking a banner at a hotel but this is NORTH KOREA nothing about the extreme authoritarian country is normal and going there is taking great risk. I hope this is resolved soon for the young man and he returns home soon but I hope others who are planning to visit North Korea understand you are taking great risk to his or her’s life.
