The Bradley Manning Case
Great minds often think alike. In this case Radley Balko pretty much echoes my thoughts on Bradley Manning's imprisonment and prosecution for leaking confidential government documents.
In short, I don't think Manning is some great patriotic hero. He does deserve punishment for, if nothing else, divulging classified documents he was sworn to protect as part of his duties.
However, the way he is being incarcerated is criminal in and of itself. That he's been held under such conditions with no trial in sight makes this even worse. Shame on everybody involved that is in a position to correct this situation.
