Woman seeks answers after arrest of American partner


Recommended Posts

Filipina Lalaine de Guzman, 48, is demanding answers for the detention of her American partner by Cambodian immigration officers after he was arrested at their home almost 90 days ago.

 

She said without an arrest warrant or proffering any criminal charges, Stephen Sidney Greatsinger, 56, is being detained by Cambodian immigration officers upon a request by the US embassy.

 

On August 4, she said, Cambodian immigration officers stormed the couple’s apartment on St 163, in the capital’s Chamkarmon district and arrested Greatsinger who has been living with her in Cambodia for more than six years.

Hmm, sending threatening emails to the US talking head in Cambodia, that's not very clever ... if true of course.

He has been a very naughty boy 

In reality a name like Greatsinger that has to be taking the urine :whistling:

 

Yes, his naughtiness goes all the way back to 3 days in the clink back in 1986:

Then

20-year sentence for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, enhanced by one prior conviction for felony theft.

 

and

Federal civil lawsuit

Couldn't find something directly related to his current detention.

 

 

Maybe this detention is based on him not keeping up with his name

So Greatsinger really IS his surname. Who would believe it?

20y for car theft? Granted that he almost certainly is a crooked character. But in most other countries, it takes a murder conviction to be locked away for 2 decades. In the US, it seems the good old penalty of hanging for stealing a man´s horse (leaving him stranded as a pedestrian in Comanche territory) has been carried over from the Wild Wild West to Suburbia. 

If I were to meet my own self of 20y ago, he and I would hardly offer the time of day to one other, given how different our views on life are.

20y in the slammer are likely even more character-shaping than 20 years of corporate life in an office - but in any positive way for US society? Is it possible that US incarceration standards are more based on vengefulness than usefulness?

Perhaps he should be put in the slammer for as many years as it took the victim of the theft to save the money for buying the car: 5 - 7 years? 

In a murder case, life in prison - because the good that was taken away cannot be restored.
