Yes, you read that correctly.
Private Bradley Manning, joined the military as a man. He eventually got mixed up in something very bad and was sentenced to prison. Now he wants to be a she.
A quick google search shows this will cost American tax payers $100,000.00 Then there is up-keep which the American tax payer will be forced to pay.
Why is this happening? Because some moron in the Pentagon thinks it would be considered “cruel and unusual” punishment to keep “her as a him”!
Does this make your head spin? America is broke, we have no money, taxes are going up and they want to waste what little we DON’T have on a fruit loop in prison! Who are these people that we have put in charge??
The Pentagon is trying to transfer convicted national security leaker Private Chelsea Manning to a civilian prison so she can get treatment for her gender disorder, it was revealed today.
Defense officials said Manning, formerly named Bradley, has asked for hormone therapy, sex reassignment surgery and to be able to live as a woman.
The soldier was convicted of sending classified documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
Some officials have said privately that keeping the soldier in a military prison and unable to have treatment could amount to cruel and unusual punishment.
Chuck Hagel, the defense secretary, last month gave the Army approval to try to work out a transfer plan with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which does provide such treatment, two Pentagon officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.
Here is a solution. Bradley Manning committed the crime while he was a guy. He should serve his sentence as a guy. When he gets out of PRISON, let him work, save his money, then turn himself into a girl instead of you and me helping out.
