    As I've read it, Assange said, in response to Manning's saying that Manning had run out of options to obtain material, "curious eyes find a way" or words to that effect.

    It is in fine points of law that definitions of "induced, asked, suggested, urged, pushed, etc" rest.

    So Assange might do 5 years to life, or likely death in custody for whatever definitions are attached to those words of "encouragement".

    I firmly believe that the persecution of Assange is a major turning point in the battle to maintain freedom of speech and action.

    People should be rising up about Assange, as the future, with his destruction as an example, looks a lot like China's social credit population control meeting a 1984 type dystopia.

    With Assange destroyed, how long before Wikileaks is only accessible by VPN, if it is not otherwise destroyed by State sponsored attacks , and whistleblowers are too cowed to risk the wrath of an all powerful information Overlord State.

    Then, any chance of monitoring the actions of our overlords and hence influencing them, is ancient history. We live in our bovine future hustling for another salt lick with our human potentials limited to those the state approves.

    Perspective:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...pe-jail-guidelines-weakened-ease-prisons.html

    Latest figures show jails in England and Wales are bursting at the seams with 80,742 people in custody - more than the maximum number which prisons can hold - and 400 are now having to be housed in police or court buildings.

    The latest proposals acknowledge that bail jumpers are "a major cause of disruption, delay and unnecessary cost for the criminal justice system", undermining public confidence and causing distress to witnesses.

    Recent police figures showed more than 37,000 bail jumpers were at large, including more than 3,000 dangerous violent offenders.

    The maximum penalty for skipping bail is 12 months in prison, or three months for those sentenced by magistrates, on top of punishments for the original offence.

    The new guidance sets out a scale of seriousness for bail offences and suggests "starting points" for punishments which can be adjusted for aggravating and mitigating factors.

    For defendants who deliberately skip bail so that their trial is halted or they cannot be sentenced the starting point should be a community punishment.

    Magistrates or judges have discretion to imprison the bail jumper but only if there are aggravatingf actors such as a string of previous offences, or a lengthy absence before the defendant isc caught

    For those who disrupt their case by failing to attend earlier hearings, most should be punished with a fine, rising to a community order in more serous cases.

    Only at the top end is a starting point of six weeks in jail suggested - where deliberate bail-jumping leads to a trial being adjourned and witnesses sent away, or the missing offender avoids a hefty sentence.

    The courts are urged to take into account a bail-jumper's state of mind when passing sentence, and to try to judge their "underlying intention" in failing to attend court.​

    Unless you're Julian Assange of course.

    We need the diversity.

    This forum has more worth as a brains trust than it has as a PM trading floor and education centre.

    Without diversity, we have less opinion to bounce off against.

    Sweden was the only country in the world to ban Skippy the bush kangaroo can you believe it :confused: apparently they didn't want children thinking that a kangaroo can change a car tyre :)

    Sweden a country with no sense of humor,sounds like a prick of a place to live not to mention the weather although jail time there would be some of the easiest in the world.

    Apparently they are shitting themselves about Russia,maybe Putin can knock a sense of humor into them :eek:

    If they hadn't treated skippy so poorly maybe he could have helped them in any invasion,Skippy has millions and millions of relatives.

    Skippy - Shippy - Shippy the bush kangaroo :D

    Both the rape accusations come down to a "he said she said" scenario. Both Assange's accusers have stated their encounter with him began consensually. Where it went from there no one will ever truly know.

    It seems that when the truth embarrasses the government, the result is the Federal Police will come knocking at your door.
