Jus­tice for Otto Warm­bier

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

I can only hope that ret­ri­bu­tion for the egre­gious death of Otto Warm­bier is swift and sure. This hor­ri­ble tragedy re­sulted from no more than a col­lege prank, lead­ing to the death of a vi­brant, lov­ing and in­tel­li­gent young man. I can only imag­ine the suf­fer­ing en­dured by his fam­ily, and was brought to tears by their de­scrip­tion of the peace that had come over his face, even when he was in a coma, as he re­al­ized that at last he was home.

As a na­tion, we re­ally need to put the screws to North Korea with ev­ery imag­in­able sanc­tion. We must treat Py­ongyang lead­er­ship like what they are: a bunch of psy­chotic despots. In the mean­time, we in New Mex­ico send our prayers and our deep­est con­do­lences to the griev­ing Warm­bier fam­ily.
