Bradley Manning Sentenced To 35 Years In Prison For WikiLeaks Disclosures

Bradley Manning Sentenced To 35 Years In Prison For WikiLeaks Disclosures

“You are aware they had him in solitary all this time? Three years he has survived and his back was straight as he walked into court and he did NOT crack. Yes I am aware he has gender identity issues and yet, you seem to think that makes him frail? Bradley Manning's feminine side then has given him the strength to stand up and put the US on notice for war crimes in front of the whole world by shining the disinfecting light of TRUTH upon the underbelly of this country's wrongdoing. If more were brave like him perhaps those who feel they could get by with murder just because they wear uniforms or are in political office would stop to think about being held accountable instead of JUST the whistleblower being held accountable for exposing horrific crimes of those in 'authority'. ”

“The man has undergone enough punishment  When I see the real War Criminals like Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld and GWB, Wall Street bankers, Corporate heads going to prison, then I'll believe we have a just system here in the US. As it is, I'm ashamed of what we have become. Truly, with the exposure of what the NSA has and is doing, with secret courts and no accountability, with drones that kill innocent people for no reason. How can we call ourselves a Shining City upon the Hill for others to 'emulate'. So Manning exposed the underbelly of the so called Shining City. He shone the light upon the deep disgusting crevices of filthy lies and they have made 'an example' of him for blowing the whistle upon their wrongdoing. I pray sincerely that he is not going to be the only one brave enough to continue to expose it. Americans need to get a grip on just how unconstitutional our nation has become. Manning deserves a Medal for Heroism and Bravery, not 35 years in a dungeon. ”

“Yeah well, nonetheless less he's getting prison and no meddle. And I suspect his time will certainly be no picnic. He is a slight and feminine young man. He is not going to fare well. ”

“Punishment for simply disclosing wrongdoing is 35 years, while LYING to the American public and the world about need to go in to two wars, convicted of war crimes by other countries, and causing hundreds of thousands of needless unwarranted civilian deaths, that gets you, ...lets see, yeah, a new heart and the ability to roam the earth free. Yeah its a blessed system of justice here in the good ole US of A. Warped.”

“Not arguing any of that. Except in Manning's case he swore under oath to not divulge anything that was classified. He did, and now he is dealing with the consequences.

I agree there are a few others that should be facing consequences as well, but he did what he did and now he is paying the piper.”

“Americans will know the Government cares about its citizens when Jamie Dimon and his peers in crime sit rotting in a MAXIMUM security prison. Until then...we all think its smoke and mirrors.

“Guess what? Its America. In America you are protected to be able to vote no matter your education, your working status, your financial situation, your sex, your race, your age (as long as it is 18 or over) as well as how politically informed you are. Your 'literacy' test is filed under 'Jim Crow' laws and poll taxes. We are not going backwards. We will not forget our past but remember it so that we do not make the mistakes of the past. You're type of thinking is from an era of racism that was allowed to proliferate and it was finally addressed and dealt with.”

“Very well said. If history teaches us anything is that states have in the past abused minority rights. Not that the feds are innocent but I feel it is their duty to establish voting guidelines and make sure left or right wing nuts controlling a state do not affect the government at the federal level too.”

“Alito disgraces the position he holds as SCOTUS Justice. Shameful behavior. Embarrassing to our Nation, to its citizens, to the world who looks upon our Nation as a pathetic example to the rest of the world because we tolerate such behavior. How can we call our Nation the 'shining city upon the hill' for others to model themselves for with SCOTUS Justices who allow themselves to be disrespectful by sophomoric behavior especially while upon the bench in the view of the public and reporters. Shameful, just shameful. SCOTUS should NOT be a position that is a lifetime position. We do not allow our own Presidents to have a lifetime position, nor should we allow a SCOTUS. Respectful Decorum from all of them is PART of their job.”

“Interesting that people who never had Insurance before, appreciate being able to have affordable health care now, and those who had preexisting conditions and those who dont have good jobs to get insurance who are under 27 can be on their parents insurance up until that age. Plus, those who are in poverty get HELP to purchase the insurance. I'm not sure what you are referring to. But the word 'most' and 'suffer' in your sentence has no clear explanation on 'why' you think so and just because you think it so, does not make it so.”

“I'm not on anyone's 'side' as far as that couple goes. That was an embarrassment to their relationship and to them as people in my opinion. My comment was to your statement about her weight which did NOT have anything to do with the story nor what obviously happened with the 'kiss cam' story. Her weight is of no interest to me nor should it be to you. Its her private life. My response was to your use of 'bullying' commentary on her weight. Much like the school yard bully who taunts others with hateful barbs. Its unnecessary and only serves to make the bully feel better about themselves as the one 'in power' to make someone else miserable. ”

“Seriously, being too fat or being too skinny is not and should never be a 'condition' of love. I'd compare it to this...say you were in an accident that destroyed the outside of your body, and you were married to or with someone you loved, would YOU want THEM to walk away from you JUST because you lost your looks?
I think I'd rather be loved for 'me' on the inside, than for me on the outside.
You never know when you might have to learn that hard lesson of love yourself....”

“No, they just realized they had a civic responsibility to take a stand for themselves by using their individual votes and that nothing was going to change until they used those votes to effect change. Thats what happens when a certain political party ticks off any demographic that has been marginalized for such a long time. Change is a part of life. Its just real hard for some to accept.

“The demographics have changed. People have been woke up. There is no dancing around the issue. Its there in stark terms. Tick people off bad enough, and they take notice and stand up for themselves. I know some dont want to face the reality of the change demographics of this country but THAT is the facts that will change the way elections go here from the past two elections forward. Now its just time to vote out the obstructionists, one election at a time, All of the suppression efforts will end up being an epic failure that only caused mass awareness of the citizens of this country who were not paying attention to their civic rights and duties to stand up for themselves. Its going to take some time to rectify and kick out through voting out the obstructionist politicians both at local and national levels especially with the gerrymandering done in so many areas. But it can be dealt with. The racist elements of our society are aging and dying off, and losing their power, slowly but surely.”

“That is not true at all. There was suppression. Anytime you make it harder for those on fixed incomes, with no transportation or money for the documentation that is now required to be able to get to vote in some areas or take away from the amount of days and time schedule you have to vote...that is suppression of votes. The fact that more people of a particular group are getting woken up to take an active role in their civic rights and duty as citizens has nothing to do with suppression of votes for those who have been affected by the new laws regarding Voter ID and time limits that were never of issue before in many areas of the country that are red states in particular.”
