And what is so wrong with that. His best hope for any leniency is to roll

The Boy was not in the girl scouts. He was in the military and will most

I don't think you will find much sympathy in this group.
Don't act the child. He was Military, not a civilian. We are WELL briefed
on what that means before we sign up including the legal handling of

He's probably still restricted to protect his ass from the other prisioners.
We don't suffer traitors very well.

You do understand that until he's convicted we don't know whether he is
a traitor or not. The treatment he's receiving amounts to cruel and

"softened up" by excuses for unconscionable illegalities are so much
easier to dominate when, eventually, the rule of law is entirely
abandoned and we are turned into a militaristic banana republic.
