Re: Green Turtle Cay shooting

We all waste a lot of time trying to figure out why idiots do idiotic stuff.

Sometimes, there is no answer, other than the root idiocy!

That was a case of a claim of diplomatic immunity. We may certainly disagree if spouses of diplomats have it, but the concept has been well established for literally hundreds of years and is a completely different animal than normal extradition. The U.S. regularly extradites those charges with crimes to countries with which the U.S. has extradition treaties that both countries willingly entered into in accordance to those treaties; that's simply beyond debate.

Re: Green Turtle Cay shooting

In watching the local video news report it is worth noting that Mr. Tellam is one of those who can't seem to grasp how to wear a mask correctly. In my mind this only adds to the list of reasons to call his judgment and indeed mental capacity into question.

There isn't any question at all. Traveling on a diplomatic passport (black in the US) carries some privileges. Diplomatic immunity is not one of them. Each embassy has a list, called the Diplomatic List, registered with the local Foreign Ministry or equivalent. If you're on that list you have diplomatic immunity. If you're not, you don't. There have been cases where the sponsoring country waves immunity but it doesn't happen very often.

I traveled on a black passport many times when I was a government employee and the training was very clear and explicit. You could get in a LOT of trouble for claiming diplomatic immunity when you don't have it.

On the other hand spouses are a perennial problem, and not just at State. There are no end of cases of USCG spouses insisting on being saluted based on their spouses' rank when driving onto a base. *sigh*
