Breanna Manning offers to plead guilty

| November 8, 2012

The Associated Press reports that Breanna Manning has offered to plead guilty to some charges against him, but not the ones that carry heavy sentences, of course, that would take guts, or something else anatomical that he doesn’t seem to have;

Coombs says Manning isn’t pleading guilty to the offenses charged by the government. Rather, he’s offering to take responsibility for less serious offenses that are encapsulated within the charged crimes.

Even if the court accepts the offer, military prosecutors could still try to prove Manning guilty of the more serious charges. They include aiding the enemy, punishable by life imprisonment.

The article continues that he has chosen a trial by judge rather than by a jury of his peers. That’s probably the way I’d go, too. In the Army, a jury of your peers will end up being a bunch of sergeant majors

    THIS is one area we can fix. Criminals need to start facing the crimes they are accused of, not down-grading the charges until they get sent to summer-camp for three months and let loose. Do the crime, do the time. Period.

    John, change the last 2 words in the article before someone else notices.

  3. Harrison says:

    Execute him by firing squad while he’s receiving a lethal injection in the gas chamber where they have an electrified gallows set up for him to hang and fry from

    @#3, I like the way you think, sir. The device you described just needs a catchy name…

  5. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Nope. I’m right, the Sergeant Major Academy is wrong.

  6. Ex-PH2 says:

    I have a better punishment for him. It’s what you find if you read “The Handmaid’s Tale”: a life sentence cleaning up toxic waste from really nasty places, under the supervision of an extreme sniper, who likes to practice by shooting rats. And make sure he’s wearing a shirt labeled “RAT”

  7. Whitey_wingnut says:

    @3 and @4 I second that idea. What could we name it?

  8. Twist says:

    @7-we should name it what it is….Justice.

  9. Edward1811 says:

    Is death by Unga-bunga available?

  10. Whitey_wingnut says:

    @8 That is the perfect name for it, but you have to admit @9’s got a good name for it as well.

  11. Twist says:

    He might actually enjoy Unga-bunga

    @5 Heh. It is your house. Thanks for your work and effort and making this site a regular destination for others.

  14. BK says:

    I noticed! I always thought the emphasis was on the Sergeant, hence the plural form of “sergeants major”, but I’ve seen it legitimately argued both ways.

  15. malclave says:

    @2, @15

    I noticed, too.

    Would that mean that E3s and E7s are Private First Classes and Sergeant First Classes? ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Warpiper says:

    That’s SergeantS Major.

    And yeah, Sweetheart was probably smart asking for a bench trial.

  17. Green Thumb says:

    Your peers will fuck you quicker than a judge.

    Enlisted or Officer.

    This clown is a turd.

    Throw away the key.

  18. I suggest:
    Make him go Airborne.
    Take him up in a C130, give him no weapon or gear, or chute and drop him out over Afghanistan from 5,000 feet..if he survives the jump, he can become a girl for some taliban sheep fucker

  19. Ex-PH2 says:

    @Green Thumb, you wrote a poem. Cool.

  20. Green Thumb says:


    Grad School is finally workin’.

  21. Ex-PH2 says:

    @22 — Hooah!

  22. PALADIN says:

    Hang him by his balls….oh i forgot, the little weasel has none.
    The little fucker will probably be pardoned by Obastard when his term is done in 2016.
    All the hippie /socialist /liberal/ baglickers are already lining up in the turds defense.

  23. MCPO USN NYC (Ret.) says:

    FABULICIOUS … maybe she can wear a nice red dress to her sentencing proceedings. LOVE IT!

  24. SFC Holland says:

    Praying for justice on this one. Life in prison or death penalty. He makes all 35 series look bad.

  25. Anonymous says:

    Peers = Sergeants Major ?

    Are you saying that today’s crop of E-9s is … shall we say, “a bunch of pansies”?

    Or that anyone in “Breanna’s” position and peer group is the intellectual and emotional equal of a senior NCO?

    Or … that command influecne would be brought to ensure the compostion of the jury would be “top-heavy”?

    Just wondering .

    Actually, I meant that the Army considers sergeant majors your peers in a court martial no matter what your enlisted rank is.
