    Really I thought it was highlighted to elict comedy.... click baiting people see an 84 year old nun break into a highly secured nucular facility is kinda funny, and sparks curiousity imo

    As a general rule, when you suggest someone else is being dense, it's wise to check your spelling in the process. Shades of this guy...

    No, not for me, I don't find the breach funny, though I'm glad THEY did it. I meant it would elicit sympathy regarding her sentencing, not the actions that got her sentenced. As far as I'm concerned whether on purpose, as in her group's case, or accidentally, as might have been the case with a teen gang, the expose of that information makes one a hero. One that broke the law, but a hero nonetheless.

    Dont worry, few in America know of the uhhmm..... "tradition".

    Here is a source for enhancing your knowledge of 1980s leftist peace protestors in the USA.
    The Unreported Resistance The nun's group is linked to these people, and is pretty much extinct except for a few eighty year old members doing eighties style "blood on stuff" protests.

    "As these limits became clear in the Carter years, a small but determined movement against nuclear arms began to grow. The pioneers were a tiny group of Christian pacifists who had been active against the Vietnam war (among them were a former priest, Philip Berrigan, and his wife, Elizabeth McAlister, a former nun). Again and again, members of this group would be arrested for engaging in nonviolent acts of dramatic protest against nuclear war at the Pentagon and the White House—trespassing on forbidden areas, pouring their own blood on symbols of the war machine."

    why should anyone feel sympathy for a woman breaking the law in a dangerious security zone? it's not like they beat her or did anything but arrest her for her actions... it's good that she did them they NEED to tighten up security. But still I don't see the sympathy aspect, just comedy

    Fair enough, that doesn't change the fact that of all the folks arrested and convicted, she's headline news to elicit sympathy about her sentence for those not like you and me.

    If they could do this, some real terrorists could do the same thing.

    Nothing is stopping you from breaking the law.

    I hope they prosecute her.

    I just think of an old nun in her uniform with a cane slowly walking into a military base, breaking gates and nobody noticing was funny not sad XD

    LOL. Obviously you didn't read the headline, let alone the article.

    If she'd wore a turban instead of a ...nun...hat, she'd have gotten 35 decades in gitmo.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear
