In typical Obama fashion the release is scheduled for May 17, well into Donald Trump’s reign.

Obama commutes much of Chelsea Manning’s sentence



This is far too insane.  America is an asylum, and the inmates are running it.

Fla. mom gets 20 years for firing warning shots


“(CBS News) JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Florida woman who fired warning shots against her allegedly abusive husband has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville had said the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law should apply to her because she was defending herself against her allegedly abusive husband when she fired warning shots inside her home in August 2010. She told police it was to escape a brutal beating by her husband, against whom she had already taken out a protective order.”


So a white man can stalk and murder a black teenager on the street, and the cops weren’t even going to charge him.

A black woman, however, if she gets a gun to save her life from a psychopath goes to jail for 20 years.  She didn’t even shoot the guy.  They send murderers to jail sometimes for a few years and out.  This is a warning shot that hit no one.

This cannot stand.  Arbitrary abuse of the courts and radical sentencing to make examples of citizens is selective prosecution.  This must be fought.
