I see the situation differently, having researched the background of the case for years and researched the great disparity between this sentence and how others convicted of far greater spying have been treated. Equal justice under the law should be a standard that Freepers uphold.
Equal justice under the law should be a standard that Freepers uphold. Pollard was not treated equally.
“Either way - his sentence is disproportionate to others who committed similar or worse crimes. If he was sentenced fairly, compared to spies working for actual enemy states, he would be free.”
It seems to me that a conservative American would be asking why other traitors got off so lightly rather than arguing for the one who got a just sentence to get out early.
You miss the lessons in Obama and Clinton. The big Treason is there at the top. Instead sniveling jakes and pencil-neck geeks want to burn Pollard at the stake.
What courage! / not. Would you say on a public forum the same thing about "Obama"? Of course not. But against a broken Jew, with no power, the castrati have at it.
I do, and I have. The Rosenbergs should not have been executed, as they spied for an ally. The Soviet Union was our ally in WWI. Imprisonment for a term and expatriation—that’s the normal punishment for such crimes.
typo fix: WWII.
Big man! Mighty Man!
You make me sick.
Was it the same alley in which we see Bill Ayers wiping his feet on a US flag?
Patriotism? Is that what YOU call patriotism? Creepy.
You follow the example of the British Admiralty who keep REAL captured America patriots in horrible, deadly, miserable conditions not again matched until the Nazi death camps. Look up Wallops Bay, if you are a REAL New Yorker.
The Admiralty refused to negotiate with General Washington for prisoner swaps. Washington was a great man and the First among true patriots. Had he captured a French officer or soldier spying on the Patriot cause for France or some partisan interest in France, he would have shipped him home after taking an oath never to come back.
I have no sympathy for him.
We all know that he would not return after the funeral. If the family is so concerned about the son attending the funeral, then hold the funeral in the prison courtyard.
All the more reason to send a message to other potential ideologue spies, who might think that passing secrets to an "ally" will just get them a wrist slap.
This isn’t the first instance of a prisoner attending a funeral. Prison officials have experience with securing prisoners during family funerals. Consequently, we don’t know that. But the prison courtyard is a perfectly reasonable option, too, imho.
The troll ‘harmonium’ is no longer accepted here.
Send his dead body.
All the energy spent against fuming against “Bolshevik-Jewish” and Soviet agents in government and establishment, going back to Wilson and the Red-Scares, and then the McCarthy-era prosecutions and we still ended up with an Obama. Do you realize “they” won?
Frothing “hyper-patriotic” idiots always fought the wrong battles in the wrong places. You don’t know or care about Liberty, that’s what I think.
God save us from, spies traitors and their fellow travelers.
