History is filled with examples of brave individuals who have broken the law to serve the greater good of humanity. In other words, whistle blowers expose crimes, even if they break a law in the process, and like a jaywalker who crosses the street to stop a murder -- they should be given a medal for their heroism and pardoned the jaywalking ticket.

Bradley Manning, who is alleged to have shared information with WikiLeaks that exposed spying, corruption, war crimes, among other tools of repression used by the global elite -- is a shining example of one such individual who deserves a ticker tape parade befitting a hero, not the over 900 odd days of imprisonment and torture that have lead up to his current hearing at Fort Meade.
