If you are visiting another country and get in trouble do the time there, not here in Canada, and don't whine to come home. I know of a girl from Lillooet BC that had been smuggling drugs into the US for years and is now doing time in California prison, as well she should. Even her native status could not get her any favors (as she thought it would), and it should not.
They just want to do the time in Canada, because our prisons coddle prisoners, and it like a stay in Holiday Inn. too bad, too sad.

Obviously you know nothing about the justice system and how it REALLY treats inmates and their families. You have know idea how it feels to go through an experience like this when your loved one is incarcerated. It is not the Holiday Inn as you call it and just because someone is accused of a crime in another country it doesn't mean they should be mistreated or not able to come back to their home country. Being imprisoned abroad is a horrible experience to say the least. Being torn away from your family, friends and homeland with no support network is horrific. Not every case is the same and every person deserves to be treated fairly and with dignity. Instead of saying they deserve it because of what they might have or not done is not the issue. The question is why and how can we help this person to become a productive member of society instead of just warehousing people.

There's an elegantly simple solution for that. Don't commit crimes in other countries. I get so fucking sick and tired of low-life shits thinking a Canadian citizenship is the equivalent of a "get out of foreign jail free" card.
All you've managed to spout is a bunch of liberalitic bullcrap.

One last point, I agree that Canadian prisons aren't Holiday Inns, but compared to prison systems in other countries, they sure seem like a Holiday Inn.

Even robbery fool? Most men are accused of rape because of evil feminists when really the men are innocent.

Fool? Once more, if you don't want to spend time in a foreign prison, DON'T COMMIT CRIMES IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES!
What's the matter, fool? Don't think people should be held accountable for their own actions?

As for your rape argument, there's a distinct difference between being accused and being convicted.

What about a women lying about a boy raping her? The boy was only 15, and the women admitted to lying, she only lied to get money out of her, you pathetic little shit!

She lied about a 15 yr old raping her so she could get money from her? Or did you mean from him?
And if you meant from him, that's the biggest load of horseshit I've heard on here yet. What adult falsely accuses a 15 yr old of rape in the hopes of getting money from them?
