North Korea Sentenced US Student To 15 Years Hard Labor

What started out as a budget tour to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, for a US student is stretched out to be 15 years for Otto Warmbier, 21 from University of Virginia.  
Otto Warmbier, was sentenced to 15 years of prison and hard labor for trying to steal aa propaganda poster from his hotel.
"North Korea's sentencing of Otto Warmbier to 15 years hard labor for a college-style prank is outrageous and shocking," said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch, in a statement. "Pyongyang should recognize this student's self-admitted mistake as a misdemeanor offense that most countries would release him on humanitarian grounds and send him home". The only is hue with that statement is that North Korea isn't exactly "some country" and numerous times they discuss their dismay for the US.
