$10,000 and some rings...does that sound like a payday for a spy?

The judge stated that Pollard was an ideologue and didn’t do it for the money.

You DON’T seem to grasp the fact tha what he did was TREASONOUS - it DOES NOT matter how MUCH or how LITTLE he took.

IT is NOT up to ANYONE [except the PROPER authorities] to decide what SHOULD or SHOULD NOT be disclosed to foreign governments, FRIEND or FOE.

The government ENTRUSTED documents to Pollard upon the ASSURANCE that they WOULD NOT be disclosed to unauthorized personnel. These, and OTHER documents [which he WAS NOT authorized to see] were STOLEN, COPIED, and then RETURNED in order to COVER UP the espionage. Then, the copies were transmitted to Israel.

It is NO DIFFERENT than Benedict Arnold giving up the plans for the defense of West Point during the Revolutionary War.

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.
