No, I'm not talking about Obama or Hillary , I'm talking about Ryan Lochte.
The facts are still coming in but it looks like Lochte and company made up the story about being robbed at gun point. The Brazilians are pissed and I don't blame them. I say send him back and let the Brazilian courts do their thing. If the Brazilians ask to extradite and we refuse we will look like international a-holes.......

Wait a minute. They were held up. They were accused of breaking a bathroom door, contacted by an armed guard, and told to give them their money. Do I have this wrong, or is OJ in prison for doing the exact same thing as these Brazilians?

Either ...
1. You haven't seen the latest videos and the full story yet, or
2. You are being facetious, or
3. I completely misunderstand your post.

The swimmers deserve prosecution and being stripped of their medals, IMO, if the evidence associated with #1 is valid.

While we don't have all the facts yet about what happened, what's the bearing for an extradition if a totally fabricated story didn't result in an injured party? I seriously doubt that Brazilian authorities have much to work with to suggest that they've been directly hurt in the scenario, particularly since there has been substantial evidence of criminal theft in Rio during the Olympic Games.

Video shows the swimmers being robbed with their hands up, and then made to sit on the ground. They were drunk. They paid the guy with the gun some money. OJ was as guilty as the Brazilian guard. The swimmers were drunken punks, who may have done $20-50 in damage to the gas station.

I've had similar problems with illegals. They break stuff, have no ID, and you have no recourse unless you want to go OJ on them, and end up in prison like the Brazilian off duty cop should.

These Ugly Americans allegedly ...

Lied to the cops about the entire story. That alone is some serious $#!+.

Broke down the door to the bathroom and were told to pay for it -- allegedly not at gunpoint (although I could not fault a security guard who brandished a gun when facing multiple drunk jocks).

Were drunk and disorderly.

Asked for and/or were offered clemency because they were important, accomplished, jocks (THAT shit must stop).

All in the implied name and shield of the USA. I resent the hell out of spoiled pigs demeaning our nation like that. Olympians should represent the best, not the worst or even the mediocre, any nation has to offer the world. Anything less than pretty danged good behavior should cost them dearly ... beginning already with lost endorsements and possible impacts on their 2020 Olympics chances.

Soros a DB? Just because he gives tens of millions of dollars to politicians in an attempt to bribe them into eliminating ALL national borders, supports Black Lives Matter, backs Israel's opponents, funds Media Matters, tried to surreptitiously influence the Supreme Court into granting widespread amnesty to illegal aliens, and SO much more ... just to put even MORE money into his pockets (according to Krugman and many others) and because he's so far left he'd jump off the planets Left edge if it were flat. (And to think the Left whines about the Koch brothers!)

I hope he drops dead. He's scum.

I'm glad I said "allegedly" and "IF" in regards to the Rio robbery/vandalism issue, because as usual the whole truth is yet to emerge and the trend is towards middle ground and away from a false police report.

I still say their behavior betrayed their obligation to be better representatives of the U.S.
