Well, I hope his life was worth it. He's never coming out of there alive.

It is too public in the eyes of the world for them to get away with that.

Edit: As predicted they released him.

Russia and Saudi Arabia would like a word with you

Russia and Saudi Arabia aren't hosting a sporting event being watched potentially by billions of people. Qatar is.

You know what the American government says to people going to middle eastern countries like Qatar? “If you get in trouble there, you’re on your own.” There is NOTHING that would stop Qatar from doing wtf they want with this dude.

The state department says that so people do less stupid shit. They generally still work to help Americans that are arrested for stuff that’s not a major crime in the US. This dude will probably just be held for a day or two and then deported by Qatar if he is American; the US has more military in Qatar than Qatar, and is most of the reason Qatar is still around.

What? This is the most ignorant comment ever. The DoD has recommended guidelines for every country you can travel to. They don’t sugarcoat the danger but they absolutely will make an effort to protect US citizens don’t be fkn dumb bro.

Depends on his citizenship more than anything. Qatari peeps know better than to mess with American citizens directly.

Just read. He was beaten by Qatari law and deported.

Yeah that sounds like par the course for a foreign citizen breaking moral law while the global spotlight is on them.
