Between June 4~6, North Korea Supreme Court sentenced two American journalists of 12 years of labor. The North accused them of espionage. The labor sentence carried out by the North is considered a severe punishment. It is ridiculous to see how the North sentences two innocent people into labor while they are the ones causing international fraud, illegal weapons trade, and violating UN sanctions. North Korea will do anything, even use people as a tool to make their point and achieve their goals. There should not be anymore incidents like these. Across the US, thousands have gathered to protest the release of Ling and Lee. Furthermore, people around the globe are petitioning for their release. We only hope that Ling and Lee will return to their families as soon as possible.
