Parents say U.S. student released from North Korea is in coma

North Korea has released Cincinnati native Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old college student who had been detained and imprisoned in that reclusive dictatorship for more than a year.

"At the direction of the president, the Department of State has secured the release of Otto Warmbier from North Korea," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement Tuesday. "Mr. Warmbier is en route to the United States, where he will be reunited with his family."

Otto Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, confirmed in a statement that their son is in a coma. "We have been told that he has been in that condition since March of 2016. We learned of this only one week ago,” they said.

Earlier Tuesday, Fred Warmbier told The Cincinnati Enquirer said the family would hold a news conference Wednesday in Cincinnati, with the details yet to be finalized.

My question: WHO CARES??!!

Sorry, did NK conduct a secret mission to kidnap him from another country? NO! Should have left him there.

I find it hard to feel sorry for this young man. First thing is you don't go to North Korea. Second thing is if you do go to North Korea don't be an idiot and commit a crime. Americans need to realize that our constitution doesn't mean squat to the people of other countries. You don't have the rights that you have here in the United States. He has nobody to blame but himself.

8:40 It is a fools idea to bomb NK over this incident. We have many other viable reasons to obliterate that country. Sending Americans to war over what this simpleton did to himself is not a good reason.
