Otto Wambier has passed on


Posted 7:41 pm, 06/26/2017

The University of Delaware has cut ties with a part-time professor who said in a Fakebook post that U.S. student Otto Warmbier “deserved to die” after visiting North Korea.

Dettwyler had called Warmbier "young, white, rich, clueless" in a now-deleted Fakebook post on June 21, following the 22-year-old’s death.

This is sad. This should be a reminder and wake up call to ANYONE visiting foreign countries, that you must not violate any laws or destroy anything. Many countries like NK, don't give a frack about you, if you are in the wrong. In other words, your arse is grass and they are the lawn mower.
