30 Years in Prison; The Current Price of Treason

Far too cheap.

Pollard released from US prison after thirty years behind bars

By GIL HOFFMAN, the Jurusalem Post

… Polard was released Friday after 30 years behind bars from the federal prison in Butner, North Carolina, after serving a life sentence for conspiracy to commit espionage without intent to harm the United States.

His wife Esther greeted him at the prison and drove with him to New York, where they will be spending Shabbat together. The couple released a statement saying that they were grateful to everyone who worked for his release.

He should have died behind bars.

    Wrong. It was the cost of treason 30 years ago. Today Treason will get you praised by 0bama and crowned a hero by the left, while Holder refuses to prosecute you. And if you are in the military you will have the full force of the WH coming down to exonerate you because Barry will have already gone on national TV extolling you as a patriot.

    • I do hope you are wrong.

        Bradley Manning, Bo Bergdahl and Hillary Clinton are all proof that I am not.

        • Hillary is still being investigated… The statute on this will still be alive when somone not name 0bama is President.

          Than again Hassan admitted to Treason in open trial (by Courts Martial) and the trial was not stopped and the charges were not amended…

    Hmmm, I wonder what university he will be teaching at?

      Not one in the US. Do you think any US university would employ a pro-Isreal professor these days? Not a chance. Just imagine the student protests in response to that.

    I can’t remember–how much time did Jane Fonda get for treason?

    • jim_m

      Or John Kerry

    • Never tried nor convicted, just awarded the Medal of Freedom by 0bama.

    Read this prediction: Obama is going to let the blind sheik go under presidential pardon… the dems will back him up with the excuse that Obama has pardoned other “controversial” prisoners go. Methinks this is how he is going to empty Gitmo too!

    • I do hope you are wrong, but I suspect you are right.

    • jim_m

      My bet is that he pardons Mumia.

      • cathymv

        I forgot about that one… yeah, I can see that happening!!

    Article III, Section 3:

    “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War
    against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and
    Comfort”

    As wrong as Pollard was and is, I’d have a very difficult uphill legal battle to squeeze what he did into that very precise definition.

    • Which is why he was neither charged with nor tried for Treason. He still should have remained in Prison until he died.

      • CaptainNed

        Fully agreed, but when you wave Treason around in the article title …
