No it does not, my friend. No, it does not.
Pretty much. Just read the UN conclusions and I can't agree that holding an acting US soldier on charges of treason in solitary confinement and under suicide watch is "torture".
That's the report I just read--the torture consisted of being kept in a cell and made to sleep in his underwear.
I forgot that he was being held for stealing twinkies. Here I thought it was treason. He has an entire lifetime to spend like this. They will always suspect he will commit suicide. He will never be allowed in the general population. He is basically under suicide watch and in protective custody while in prison. This is now his life forever if he is convicted.
maybe it is shameful that he was brought up to think actions do not have consequences. maybe then he would not have committed treason. now they will have to spend alot of money to protect him from other prisoners. he can whine about his 20 minutes of sunshine but why would we restrict other prisoners more so he can have more time? he ****** up, now he has to pay the price.
You forgot the most heinous charge of torture I just came across--he developed a rash because his blanket was too stiff. (No, I'm not kidding.)
i know. it is society that is messed up to even think any of the things done to him were torture. not killing him if found guilty will be the real torture. fellow military criminals will kill him. so he can never have interactions. he must make do with what is left after the rest get their time as a group for showers and such.
There are a certain heightened expectations of loyalty and service that come with taking the oath to serve your country in the military--and certain harsher penalties if you dishonor that oath. If he were a civilian instead of a serving soldier, things would be different.
shhhh. if you keep talking like that people will think you believe people are responsible for their actions. that is not a very popular opinion in the past few decades.
No-neither does the BS that the hero Julian Assange has been put through as well as the OWS heroes.Meanwhile the racist TP skunks get richer and richer and aren't in jail where they belong.
er,,, who's he ?? haha hehe
