Treatment of prisoners like this is all this is because we as a country have decided that Jail should be punishment and not rehabilitation. We would rather the convicted be made to suffer rather then learn from what they have done and learn how to actually be a productive member of our society.
This is beyond the question of whether Manning should/shouldn't be serving the time.
If I leave the back-door unlocked for my son who is working late, then by default I've weakened the security of my home. Why is that so easy to understand but software back-doors are completely incomprehensible for people?
I saw this yesterday, it's seriously appalling. I can't believe they can't think of a better way to deal with these kids then charge them with something meant to protect children from being exploited by adults.
As a mother, I would be seriously pissed off if I had to explain to my 5 year old what suicide is because some moron adult decided to breech the topic with them. I hope she sues the hell out of that school district. NO 5 YEAR OLD SHOULD EVEN KNOW WHAT SUICIDE IS!
The husband and myself have been doing no more than 25 grams of carbs a day for the last 172 days. We've both lost over 30 lbs each, If I didn't already have other health issues I might have lost even more in that time. In any case cutting out carbs has really helped me clear up a whole host of symptoms I was dealing with due to graves disease. Even if I never lost another pound I would continue this lifestyle just for that reason alone.
