Yet when the parents on the E-Trade commercial put the baby in solitary confinement and take away his IPad and IPhone, people laugh.

Those old Mexican prisons were terrible.

ox45tallboy: doglover: That treason you've posted has human rights groups monitoring him often. He's being as well treated as possible. The other guy was in "the hole"

I see you're not familiar with what Manning was going through before he got transferred to Ft. Leavenworth. The human rights groups finally being made aware of the conditions he was held in for nearly a year was what finally got him transferred.

I can't decide based on the descriptions of the conditions of both incarcerations which would be worse. I'd probably go with the guy from TFA as worse, since Manning got better treatment a year after his arrest, and this guy endured some horrible sh*t for 22 months.

The measure of a society is how it treats its worst. Because if the sort of treatment either of these guys received is found to be okay based on the nature of their wrongdoing, it won't be long until lesser offenses are deemed worthy of that sort of treatment. I mean, hell, neither one of them have even been found guilty of a crime, right?

We give them hundreds of millions of dollars in golden parachutes when they retire from their boardroom positions.  If they happen to have committed any crimes, those are ignored (unless enough public outcry is raised to force a show trial) or outright forgiven.

How are we doin'?

I live in Dona Ana county, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. It really is a decent place to live, but New Mexico politics are all manner of weird. They like building bigassed jails in this state too.

As for what happened to the DA that was in charge? She's no longer the DA. She's the Governor.

The budget at Dona Ana County Jail for medical care for inmates has nearly doubled since 2005, the year that Slevin was arrested, Williams said.

Let's see two times zero is zero. Well Done.

way south: I remember the Pre Clinton/Bush era when presidents took responsibility for their actions rather than making bad choices then casting all the blame on their pen.

like when we sold arms to iran so we could fund a war in central america and later when it was discovered Ronald Reagan stood up and on national TV said "the buck stops here!" and took full responsibility for it, and let the chips fall where they may. remember that?

C18H27NO3: BarkingUnicorn: Well, they give you Fark in jail, don't they?

Probably not the kind of fark you want.

After a few weeks in solitary, that would be considered welcome social contact.
