Even though President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un have established some good relations over the past few years, that doesn’t mean that the dictator has gotten any smarter or less evil.
In the Hermit Kingdom, a North Korean mother is facing serious jail time after saving her two children from her house after it caught on fire.
Now, it’s not the saving of the children specifically that has the mother in trouble, it’s what she didn’t do that has caught the eye of North Korean government.
Every North Korean is forced to have photos of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in their homes. The mother did, but she didn’t save them from the fire.
According to Daily Mail,
The woman has been placed under investigation by the country’s Ministry of State Security after a fire broke out in a home shared by two families in Onsong County, North Hamgyong Province, close to the Chinese border.
Both sets of parents were out at the time the fire started, but raced back to save their families after seeing smoke. In the process, one set of portraits was destroyed.
North Korea demands that every home display paintings of its past leaders, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, and sends inspectors to ensure that they do.
According to the Hermit Kingdom’s laws, all depictions of the Kim family must be treated with the same reverence as the men themselves – meaning failure to care for the portraits properly is a serious crime.
If found guilty, the mother is facing a lengthy prison sentence with hard labour.
This demonstrates how ridiculous Kim Jong Un really is that he will willing to incarcerate a mother who saved the lives of her children but didn’t save a couple of pictures that could easily be replaced in about 5 minutes.
