Overseas you ARE guilty until proven innocent. and an American hanging out int he mob-like crowds makes for easy pickins for the police.. This is not indicative that he’ learned anything while studying at Georgetown. While I hope no harm comes to sweeney. i hope they scare the bejesus of this boy..
