I say as soon as you cross the borders you are now subject to that nation's laws. Don't like it then stay home you whiny over privileged brat.

It's important. If foreigners break a law in your own country, they should receive the same punishment as any other citizen living in the country.

Everyone inside the country's boarders should be subject to that country's laws.

Including Americans visiting foreign countries.


*An exception does exist for military personnel stationed in a foreign country. The SOFA, should one exist, lays out the conditions in this case.

"Hey is it okay if I murder people while visiting your country?"

"Yeah, sure. Our laws are only applicable to citizens and immigrants."

You go into the country, it applies to you, pretty much.

Everyone who is there. Immigrants should be made accountable for any crimes they commit here.

I know some countries have insane laws that don't make sense, but it's not unknown. So if you don't want to risk being arrested in a foreign land for waving or for wearing a skirt, don't go over there.

Anyone that benefits from the country's laws should obey it's laws.

Easily anyone in the country.
I feel like the "refugee" situation in Europe would be much worse.
