Who was the lawyer that used to post on here who called this?

He should never have been charged in the first place, the prosecution was pathetic and merely a race baited reaction full of emotion.
Thank you.

Jury rigging - consistent with other characteristics of a police state.

Bradley Manning is the one they should free.

This is already being discussed in "Politics".  Given the highly political (and fairly inflammatory) nature of the case and people's opinions about it, that seems to me to be the proper place to discuss it.

I didn't see the other thread when I created this one.

In fact I am not even sure how this was posted in the first place.

Maybe a mod can lock this one

I wonder what percentage of forum members don't even post anywhere.

It should have been taken to a grand jury. That would have solved the controversy of whether he should have been charged from the start.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
