What happens with all the crimes Kim Jong-Un is said to have committed against his people?

I'm just wondering, because Trump seems to be pitching him the idea that if he puts down his nukes and opens up his nation to the world all will be wonderful condos on the beaches, that all will be forgiven and there will ground breaking technological advances to enjoy. (Have you seen Trump's film he made for Kim?) But, has not Kim Jong-un committed horrendous crimes against humanity? Will he ever have to pay for those crimes, or will he somehow get a pass? And, who will give him such a pass?

I'm not against reaching out for peace, but dictators are often the types of leaders that need to hold power out of sheer survival. They have done too much against too many to be safe in letting down their guard. To a man like Kim Jong-Un holding absolute power means not having to pay for crimes committed.


Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to see leaders working toward peace, but I think there are certain realities we must consider. Karma can be a bitch for dictators, and Trump won't be able to use his pardon power for Kim Jong-Un.

2. No. I think it would be a good thing if he was actually willing to open

up the country and give the people more freedom.

The problem is that there is no indication of him willing to give anything up.

4. I think it would be great if he opened up his country too.

But, he would have to give up the things that keep him in power. I don't know if he ever actually will do that.
