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.
