Jermaine Rogers

Jermaine Rogers stands in a prison cell in Kuwait, where he is sentenced to life in prison.

For 2½ years, Jermaine Rogers has been in a Kuwait prison. Now, his family has found it more difficult to communicate with him, and a representative from the U.S. Department of State has not visited him since September.

Rogers, a Connecticut native who was stationed at Fort Hood during his time in the U.S. Army, was sentenced to death by hanging on drug charges Sept. 25, 2016.

THUGNIFICENT KILLED ME

You end of sleeping in the bed you've made.

“Stupidity cannot be cured. Stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death. There is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

When in Rome do as the Romans do! Unfortunately a number of American Citizen's do not believe Our Constitutional Protections do not (I say again Do Not) apply to You when You depart the United States Boarders.
Yes the Government (Military) Members are covered by Status of Forces Agreements in many of the Country's that they may be assigned too.
But not all Friendly nor enemy governments have any such agreement with America.
As a Military Service member and Government Contractor I have been in many Foreign Country's and have found that: You follow the laws and obey the security forces, Police and other like agencies and You are either welcomed or tolerated but You are still a foreigner and You do not have any America's Constitutional Privileges that are guaranteed in America.
Something that the individual does or fails to do causes the attention of those that are responsible for their Country or Local Laws.
American Citizen be aware You and You alone are responsible for what You do or fail to do and whom You chose to be associated with.
Your choice put yourself in harms way You will find different rules and consequences.
You are briefed about this when You are assigned or accept a contract with a firm to be there.
