  • Saving lives. The crime has already been done. They jumped the fence. The crime isn't them finding water, or something helping them find water. They still shouldn't be here though their actions are still illegal.

  • But is making this phone and selling it to people who clearly intend to use it to commit the crime of jumping the border be considered treason? Not the people who buy it and use it, but the ones who make and sell it--are THEY commiting a crime?

  • Saving lives. People are crossing illegally anyways, correct? At least now they won't be dying of dehydration.

  • The creator should be prosecuted! Good grief. The people are breaking the law, I have zero sympathy for criminals.

  • They aren't killing people, specialkid! Yes, they are criminals, but should the punishment be death by dehydration?

  • Treason against who? Mexico? They aren't committing treason against the US, so it wouldn't be up to us to decide who was punished or how.

  • Dying of dehydration is a result of their poor planning! I'm supposed to feel sorry for someone dying while trying to ILLEGALLY enter this country?! Sorry, no dice.

  • Don't care if they are doing something illegal or not. I will not smirk or be indifferent over the loss of a human life.
