    Brave Bravado: Bradley Manning supporters volunteer to serve his prison time

    Brave Bravado: Bradley Manning supporters volunteer to serve his prison time

    knowing full well they never will.

    Pfc. Bradley Manning faces up to 136 years (reduced to 90 years max) in prison after recently being found guilty of charges of espionage and theft for his role in providing classified information to Wikileaks.

    Progressive organizations have been circulating a petition to allow Manning’s supporters to take turns serving part of his prison time in his place.

    I’m fairly certain that in the United States it is not legal for a person to serve the prison time of another individual convicted of a crime.  You might get away with that in China, but not here.

    It’s easy to volunteer for such a thing when you know there’s about zero chance you’ll actually be called upon to fulfill that promise.

    So, clearly this is nothing more than a PR stunt.  Pretty much what you’d expect from CREDO, whose claims to fame include getting Andrew Breitbart kicked off ABC’s Election Night Coverage.

    Just for giggles, someone should dress up as an Army colonel, complete with accompanying MP’s in white helmets and knock on some of these morons doors. Tell them they’ve come to take them off to Jail for their portion of the sentence.

    Make sure to video the shock and the tears when they think their promises are about to be taken seriously.
