Letter to the Editor: Don’t Ostracize and Stigmatize All Cops

Letter to the Editor: Don't Ostracize and Stigmatize All Cops As "Bastards" 02-23-2020 I am writing in response to Imani Beckett’s article, “Why all Cops Are In Fact Bastards,” in the February, 2020 edition of Change Links.

Unsung Memorial Day Hero: Smedley Butler

A Likely MIA Name over Memorial Day Weekend Smedley Darlington Butler. It is a name you’re not likely to hear mentioned this Memorial Day Weekend. Who is he? A four-star USMC General who served 33-plus years in the US Marine Corps, won two Congressional Medals of Honor and is, at least arguably, the most beloved Marine of all time. Why won’t you hear his name? Butler became outspoken and politicized the moment he retired in 1931. The following quote will give you some insight: “I spent 33 [...]

Truth on Trial

Bradley Manning, Crimes Against Humanity and the Values of International Law By VIJAY PRASHAD During his June-July 2013 court martial, Private First Class Bradley Manning sat impassive. He had been in custody from May 2010, which included harsh treatment for almost a year at the military base in Quantico, Virginia.
