    She should not have gotten such a harsh sentence in the first place.

    Actually I think her name is Chelsea Manning now.

    She should have been put to death.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I would say counseling would be appropriate and something they already provide the prison population (I base this on extensive TV research). I would not allow surgery unless it was somehow justified as life saving. And I don't think you can do that.

    On a side note...how do they decide what population of people to put a transgender person in?

    I think she did this country a great service by letting people know the type of things their hard earned tax money is being wasted on.

    Lile that pos Snowden, there is a right way and a wrong way. The ends do not justify the means.

    If people who think that he/she should have the surgery, then they can put up a donation to have it done. After all, "it isn't that expensive".

    If we were doing things the right way, there would have been no need to do it. In that case, doing it should have led to harsh punishment. But that is not the case. Therefore she should have been let go, with credit for time served. That way, she could get her own gender treatment, whatever that needs to be.

    Eventually this person will be freed from prison and will have to be re-integrated into society.

    My question is: how much (If anything.) do the rest of us owe this person? The treatment that this person will require will be pretty expensive, I'm sure.

    Who is going to pay those bills? Who should pay those bills?

    Any ideas?
    Why are taxpayers having to pay for this to begin with? this is an elective surgery that has nothing to do with saving his life. he should be on the hook for all bills and expenses related to the surgery.
