I guess I kind of have a different take on this. I don't think there should have been a prisoner swap. You do the crime, you do the time. That goes for the ex-marine, the sports star and the arms dealer or anyone else. Don't know about the ex-marine but the ball player should have and probably did know the law and chose to break it and got caught. Do the time. Same for the arms dealer, who obviously knew he was breaking the law. Decisions, just like elections, have consequences.
