    Glad these stupid foreigners are finally realizing that they can’t come here and do anything they want, then go home, and think they got away with something. It’s just a shame we have to pay for his jail time now. We really need to do something about situations like this. Let their countries pick up the bill, for instance.

      We don’t want him, either, but he needs to pay if he helped kill someone. Maybe he can bunk with his daughter, till they both rot in hell.

    Argentina, rumored to be the home of the top Nazis, is now suffering from runaway inflation, nothing new there, and crime. I bet he wants to come back. So, we oblige.
