North Korea’s prison camps: What put Otto Warmbier into a coma?

The brutality of the North Korean regime was once again cast into the international spotlight following the death of 22-year-old American student Otto Warmbier last week.

While the brutal conditions inside North Korea’s prison camps and detention centres are well documented, less is known about how the American came to be in a coma in the first place.

However a 2012 video could provide some clue as to how North Korea treats its detainees and prisoners.

    What put this YOUNG man into a coma was….
    White parents teach their children they are racist if they criticize other cultures
    This gives an unrealistic view that hijinx by 20 something’s in every country is punished with just a stern look and a finger wag
    White parents do not teach THEIR CHILDREN that foreign countries are not just about families and fun times but about international relations and most countries like to give the finger to Western countries and some of your kids get it when they go!
    Parents are the muddled obedient sheeple classes usually

      WTF does being white have anything to do with it? You think political correctness is exclusive to whites? Let’s put this in perspective: just breathing can get you arrested by these f$@king savages, and unfortunately for us and convenient for the North Koreans this guy ain’t around to tell us what happened.

        Most parents of non-white stock teach their kids about ‘realities of politics/race’
        political correctness has two positions
        1) people whipped by it
        2) people who use it’s talons

    Wasn’t this guy in a coma and a vegetative state? So what is with the handcuffs and the Koran soldiers frogmarching his unconscious body instead of transferring him on a gurney?

  • What put Otto Warmbier into a coma? The same thing that would put North Koreans into comas: human rights abuses.

    The video clip is nothing new. It happened all over Eastern Europe for decades. And the idiots in the West refuse to condemn and ban communism.
