Let us fervently hope that he is dealt with as mercifully as the Mexican authorities would deal with an American caught in a similar position in Mexico.

You mean he should be able to buy his way out of the situation?

I requested that the comment by someone posing as me be taken down. It was an ad hominem attack on the previous poster by some coward hiding behind the handle "Old_Ben." I do not use the underscore.

I stand by my earlier comment.

I'm not disputing what this man did was crude and disgusting, but I think we all need to be realistic. What was this child doing on an adult party-line looking for hookups? Where was the parental supervision/involvement during all of this? I'm sorry for being cold-hearted but I feel that this crime could have been avoided for this teen if some common sense was used. We can't just blame the offender and turn a blind eye in these situations.
