Even with instances like these here and there, I still believe we live in the greatest and most free nation on the planet... I've been to countries where gun laws were so strict, that it was illegal to buy paintball guns... Been to places where a woman was buried with only her head sticking out of the ground and males would get to throw rocks at her until she died... All because she went on a date (and got caught). Her date, was given a slap on the wrist... I've been to a place where rich kids drive like maniacs and when they slammed their car at a foreigner's car, it was the foreigner's fault (even though the foreigner stopped because of a red light) all because "if the foreigner did not enter their country, they never would have gotten into that accident."
So yeah, I'm ashamed when I read about cases like this, but there are far worst places to be. :)
