It is being reported that Bradley Manning, who was convicted of violation of the espionage act and sentenced to 35 years in prison, is getting his sex change operation at the expense of tax payers.
We don’t have enough money to help veterans who are homeless or suffering from PTSD, but we do have enough to pay for a sex change operation to make a convicted felon happy?
The ACLU, who has been representing Manning, said that the government agreed to the operation to get Manning to end his hunger strike. Personally, I think if a prisoner wants to starve themselves to death trying to get something they want, they should be allowed to starve to death; saves the taxpayers money. It reminds me of the kid who holds their breath trying to get something they want.
