Tolerant left: Professor says Otto Warmbier 'got exactly what he deserved' -- and that's not all

A University of Delaware anthropology professor appears to have projected her frustration and anger with her students upon Otto Warmbier, who died this Monday after being abruptly returned from North Korea in a coma. Warmbier had been detained by the dictatorship for removing a banner from a hotel room wall and was sentenced to 15 years hard labor. He entered the coma soon after sentencing.

Katherine Dettwyler took to Facebook the same day the 22-year-old died, asking “Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warbier got exactly what he deserved?” She followed this question with a profanity-laden diatribe about how young white men at her university rape drunk female students and threaten professors with violence over grades.

Mike Opelka wondered if she had reported any of these incidents to police on today’s “Pure Opelka.” He wanted to get Dettwyler on the show to ask if she’s for or against the death penalty, because what happened to Warmbier for taking down a banner was, in essence, a death sentence.
