    But, the entire continent of Europe has a debt of gratitude to all American troops, American workers and American families who's men fought and died for the freedom of everyone in Europe. This debt is also there for Canada, Britain, Russia and all other troops, workers and families who made the same great sacrifices that the Americans made to free us all from the evil Nazi's.

    No, we do however think that the criminals who are beyond rehabilitation will get jailed for natural life or get a mental disorder sentence which states that they will only be released if found cured.

    Dear America,

    We have plenty of room for your violent criminals since we don't imprison everyone who commits a petty crime. This will be good for you because you often release your murderers and rapists due to lack of room to incarcerate your drug users. We simply send our drug users for treatment and those who don't respond to treatment are allowed to quietly continue their habits as long as they don't bother other people.

    So, when you give someone 30 years for murdering children, they won't get out in 7 years because they have accepted Jesus as their personal savior. They'll be here the whole 30 years and your citizens will be much safer.

    In the meantime, we can use your dollars so unlike you, our streets don't have potholes and our infrastructure isn't crumbling.

    Sincerely,
    The Netherlands
    Than the actual Netherlands humbly apologizes for the misunderstanding.

    If I were about 50 years younger, I'd be living there. Of course, I've been a desert rat for 40 years so I'll have to get warm jammies to survive.

    In 1997 I attended the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. Late November and cold as the heart of a cat refused a treat. One glorious week, a fascinating place to live. The architecture is just, well, astonishing.

    I guess a few hundred years of extra time to make and correct mistakes gives you a bit of an advantage over us post-modern cowboys. I'm sure we'll catch up in a few hundred years. Nobodys perfect

    The Netherlands is far from perfect but has learned that, however smart people a few centuries ago might have been, new times ask for new rules and new laws. People have to be brave enough to doubt the wisdom of the past and see that sometimes old laws have to be scrapped and new ones added.

    Dear Netherlands,

    Surely your society would cause these poor misunderstood dears to reform, rehabilitate, and become positive and productive members of society. Good luck, and send postcards.

    This is what the prison system looks like in a country that doesn't have insane drug laws and isn't arresting people for looking at a cop the wrong way.
    Well at least they will have room to house people like Anders Breivik.

    Because Norway is basically the Netherlands, right? I mean, they're all the same over dere.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
