TOKYO – University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier has been medically evacuated from North Korea in a coma after being detained for 17 months, his parents told The Washington Post on Tuesday.
The Warmbiers were told that he contracted botulism soon after his trial and was given a sleeping pill, from which he never woke up. There is no way of knowing yet whether the North Korean version of events is true, but the Warmbiers were told their son was in a coma the whole time. State Department officials are accompanying Otto Warmbier from Sapporo to Cincinnati. North Korea has woefully inadequate medical care, and it is not clear how North Korean doctors had been caring for Warmbier for more than a year in an unconscious state.

Dude, Europe in 2017 is a place where you can be fined for sharing a joke about Muslims. Free speech is dead.

You could always come over here and maybe...i don't know....not make jokes about Muslims? Kind of makes for a better life all round really.
England has no less freedom of speech as the US.
I never believed he stole anything.
