Otto Warmbier, that's who.
He was a dumb kid. How many of us did more than one dumb thing when we were his age where we got lucky in not paying severe consequences?

So you're pretty stunned when Otto tells you he's going to ignore all that and steal a political banner to bring back to his hometown church.

Pretty sure "You're an idiot" are the next words coming out of your mouth..
He shouldn't have gone. No one should, so that makes for far more than one idiot going to N. Korea every day/month/year.

You believe the story about the woman who asked him to bring back the poster? That story had lie written all over it, and instead it was a desperate defense on his part to try to wiggle out of the unbelievable trouble he found himself in.
