Re: <nettime> In brig, WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning ordered to sleep without clothing


This is a truly reprehensible post. Private Manning makes a decision clearly based on the dictates of his conscience and as a result he's held in conditions that shouldn't be used even when we're talking about a convicted rapist or killer -- and John Young dismisses concern over his mental health both because he has the bravery to stand up to his tormentors and on the astonishing grounds that because he's gay, being forced into total nudity must be a big turn on to him anyway. What's this kind of shit doing on nettime, and who's doing the masturbating here?

Manning's capability to taunt his jailers indicates his mental health 
is not a problem, thus undercutting accusations of deterioration 
due to, uh, torture. Standing nude, being gazed by beefy guards, 
is not all that bad. Manning has accomplished his life's wet dream, 
and for that he is to be pedestaled iconically.
