Chelsea Manning Finally Freed...

Post by Rockhopper on Wed May 17, 2017 5:38 pm

Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst behind one of the largest leaks of classified information in history, was freed Wednesday morning and is looking forward to living openly as a woman for the first time in her life without government restrictions, her attorney says.

Manning came out as a transgender woman in prison.
As a prisoner at the US Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, she had to conform to male grooming standards before her 3 a.m. ET release.
"She has experienced trauma over the past seven years of her confinement and the trauma from those experiences won't just evaporate the day she walks out of prison," said American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Chase Strangio, who represented Manning.

Not before time! The world owes her a deep debt of gratitude!

Yep, she done us a nice favor in letting us know what crap was done in our name.
