You guys thought that Pussy Riot got it tough.

Sister Megan Rice, 84, got help and broke in to the Y-12 nuclear weapons facility at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. They painted bible verses on one of the building's outside walls. Supposedly this was a super-high security facility. (They make H bombs.)

Greg Boertje-Obed, 58, and Michael Walli, 64, received 62-month terms. Big threats to civilization, these three. Lock 'em up....

Somehow the government also claimed that $53,000 of damage had been done. Paint and human blood, you know. If they'd used battery acid that would have tallied at $10,000,000.

All three were convicted of sabotage. Of course nothing was sabotaged. Trespass and vandalism, sure thing. Bombs kept coming off the assembly line.

USAO overcharged to set up 30 year sentences then recommended five and nine year terms. That U.S. Attorney went soft.

These people cut their way through chain link fence. Nothing complicated. Nothing expensive. Then they indulged non-violent protest. No weapons, no machinery. Bible verses scrawled on a building and nothing broken other than holes in cheap fences.

Who the Hell puts an 84-year old nun in prison ???

What's The Man going to do to spring Sister Rice?

Obama manned up to go after bin Laden. He did it risky so's to get hands on Big Boy's computers and other info assets. So how's he going to handle a problem on the other side ??? Is Obama competing with Putin for a hard-ass medal?

Catholics by the millions support these folks. Code Pink supports these folks. Rachel supports them. Roughly the whole Left supports them. Link goes HERE.

What is going on here? Also, fundamentally, is AG Eric Holder doing the day to day work to manage DoJ ?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
