I love social media. I use it not only to keep up with friends and family, but also to gauge what news stories are worth looking into. This is why social media has let me down in the last few days.
Tag Bradley Manning
Yesterday, Private Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in military prison for a crime he didn’t commit. As a whistle blower on the military’s illegal killing of civilians, Manning should not have faced any charges and those who he exposed should have been charged and hopefully convicted. To date, no one except for Manning has been changed much less convicted.
