thinks he's been punished enough.....apparently during his time in the USMC brig at Quantico...they were mean to him....Guess he doesn't care too much for Kansas either...

Now the traitorous little slacker wants a do over....apparently believes everyone should just forget about it and let him get on with his life...

My thoughts? "Well Bradley, decisions have consequences, should have thought about that before you sold out your country...."

    I look at the pics of this kid in the article and he totally looks like some wimpy liberal offspring that joined the army to get a free ride through college. He was probably told he was special all the way up to the second he got on the bus for boot camp and then he found out that in fact...he was not. Then he made a choice to supply secrets and now he does not understand why he is being punished at all. But I am in a bad mood today so thats just how I feel right now lol

    Of course his defense attorney will try to get him off the hook with this. That's what defense attorneys do. That doesn't mean that the brig staff at Quantico wasn't right in what they did. We don't have a clue what really went on. That is to be found in the discovery period of pretrial activities. To say the brigg staff was wrong at this point is ludacris. We don't know the mental condition of the prisoner. We don't know what his emotions were. Also, we have to think of the seriousness of the charges here. This is espionage. Used to be punished by death. Now days they slap your hand with a ruler and give you a beer.

    And yeah Teach, I can just see Bubba wringing his hands in anticipation, :rotflmao::rotflmao::rotflmao:

    Great post ThatMattGuy. We should all be in a bad mood when questions like this come up. I think you may have hit the nail on the head.

    I think he should be the first one to try the new HANO* traitor insertion method.

    While I have plenty of people here that are on "my" side I find myself surrounded throughout the day by the crazy liberal folks who are totally willing to give up everything to live off the government. ALL of them have an extreme hatred for anyone that has been successful. They see the "1%" as pure evil as well and innovation and those who have gotten wealthy producing and providing the very goods and services they crazy libs use every day. I am not rich and probably never will be. I think it is absolutely ridiculous that these people want to destroy those who write the paychecks!!! I NEED the rich to be successful, I need them to stay wealthy! I need the paycheck so that I can maintain my life. Which by the way I am totally happy with. I am not jealous about the rich man. My newest car is 11 years old and I am perfectly happy with it! Everything I have I worked for and was not given to me.

    I can not in any way wrap my brain around liberal thinking. I think the street level liberal is just a pawn being used by those in power to bring in the era of socialism/Marxism/what ever the hell it is'ism. These idiots are happily welcoming big intrusive government and forcing it onto everyone. They have no idea how it is suppose to get paid for they just know its all FREE!!!! We are in big trouble guys. These street level liberals are being lead by their heart strings and no common sense. They have no idea they are giving absolute power to a chosen few. These fools have some unrealistic idea of becoming the perfect utopia and they are willing to give up EVERYTHING to be a part of it. I work with them and hear them talk see their Facebook posts and read the news. These people are crazy and they are going to take this country down. Really it is too late to recover. I fully expect to see the blue helmets patrolling the streets before my life is over.

    The kid in the story had no love for his country. He sold out the USA and is crying about being treated badly in jail. The nation is infested with weak momma's boy liberals just like him and they need to be run the hell out of here at gun point.

    He was probably kept in the conditions that he was so that
    any other prisoners that were in the facility could not bash
    his head in.

    Even just being a dog face in a Jarhead brig could be dangerous.

    Yeah, there is that to consider, too. Not a good place to be the 'odd man out'.

    Shoot, if it had been a Navy brig he would have been on
    bread and water.

    :spittingcoffee: That punishment is pretty sinister in it's effect. It isn't meant to starve the prisoner. Eat enough bread and drink water with it, and you end up trying to pass a concrete block out the back end. :silly:

    That's like the towel-heads cutting off a thief's right hand. Since food is served in communal bowls in middle eastern prisons, and the left hand is "unclean", used for personal hygeine, nobody is going to let a prisoner reach into the food bowl with his left hand. It's a slow death sentence!

    Reminds me of a punk that served with me during my time on the East German Border. Guy in S-2, two weeks after we got our new war plans, goes over the border with a laptop and a HumVee. ( I refuse to call them hummers.)

    Two weeks later, he walks back on post during my shift at the front gate. :devil: Last I knew, he was serving well deserved time in Mannheim Coleman Barracks, Germany.

    :agree:

    The street level libs are supporting the communists who are actually in charge. Regarding Manning...Dat' little baby-faced white-boy gonna' get corned. According to what I have read, maybe he won't mind.

    I think he should be tried, shot, and then hanged. That's how Judge Roy Bean would have done it. And fined him for what money he had in his pockets.
