And it seems Americans want to make it even bitchier for themselves.Your boy is screwed. He is no different than any other American serving time in foreign prison. Life is a bitch sometimes.
As for that mistake of crossing the border in the first place, "who am I"? Who are you to say it didn't happen the way he says? Do you have ONE shred of evidence that he was intentionally trying to break their laws? I don't think you do. The weapons he had were legal in the US, where he says he never meant to take them, or himself into Mexico, and even told the Mexican border authorities that they could confiscate them if they would just allow him to return to the US.
Yep, those weapons are the evil here...legally owned weapons....I am confident that any rational person doesn't believe that this is grounds for beatings, and death threats....Maybe you think that kind of behavior is warranted, but I don't.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
