Kucinich Cruel unusual punishment unconstitutional
Posted by TwitC
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's extradition hearing to determine whether he will be sent to Sweden began Feb 7 in London. Meanwhile PFC Bradley Manning continues to sit in solitary confinement in the United States. While Assange's plight is in the public eye, Manning goes unseen. Amnesty International has called his treatment by the US military inhumane and unjust. US Representative Dennis Kucinich, in response to these allegations, has demanded the US military be more transparent about Manning's treatment and allow him to speak with Manning in person. Kucinich said he has yet to receive a reply to his request, and said Manning's constitutional right not to be treated with cruel and unusual punishment must be respected.
