    No. It isn't. PeteEU, as decrepitly Leftist as he is, is correct. These type events are damaging on many levels.

    Not necesarily. Depending on the tribe, the punishment would be different.

    No, not yet. Not to mention, we don't see near as much hooplah about his crimes as we do about this ****.

    He is currently awaiting trial in total isolation with no clothes or bed. Legally speaking it would be difficult to find a more extreme form of containment without outright human rights violations.
