You read that right. Over the weekend five people were arrested on charges related to the practice and coverup of U.S. government torture, and three of those people were jailed.
What did these five people do? They stood on the sidewalk outside the White House protesting the practice and coverup of torture by the U.S. government, and for that they were arrested on June 28. Three were sent to jail.
In the meantime, no one actually involved in the government conspiracy to commit torture has been jailed or even charged with a crime.
