Otto Warmbier has severe brain injury.........

Postby jltrent » Thu Jun 15, 2017 6:35 pm

"This pattern of brain injury is usually seen as result of cardiopulmonary arrest where blood supply to brain is inadequate for a period of time, resulting in the death of brain tissue."
Sounds like they hung him and cut him down just in time, but the brain suffered tissue damage.

It's hard to say. I read another op-ed that suggested that it was 'possible' he had tried to hang himself and the guards cut him down before he died.

I thought the doctors in their press conference said there was no real evidence of any kind of physical abuse. May have simply turned him into a vegetable on purpose. Stop his heart with some drug, wait a few minutes, administer antidote and resuscitate, then ship home in vegetative state....

While I believe that correlation does not necessarily mean causation, I also try to remember that "Absence of evidence does not equal evidence of absence"

We need to mop the floor with them. Make them disappear. IMO.

In my opinion he had brain damage for even wanting to go there.

Otto Warmbier died yesterday 6 days after his release.

He had been his High School salutatorian, so he did have something going for him once upon a time.
While vacationing in South Korea he signed up with a tour group to visit North Korea, the tour was billed as
"The Tour Your Parents Don't Want You To Take."
This tour group "the young pioneers" no longer accepts Americans for tours of North Korea.

Very sad. Gotta feel for his family. He was young and privileged, doubtless thought himself invincible, and he paid a very high price for it. RIP, young man.

See it often in young ladies nowadays too, they think they can travel freely to all corners of the world carefree because they grew up in a safe neighbourhood, and if they run into trouble they'll just be nice and friendly and talk their way out of the misunderstanding.

When the fact is there are some really bad places and people out there just waiting for a chance to happen upon a naive foreigner, and the local police are just as bad. The bubble they live in isn't the safe space they think it is.
