Penelope was notable for using passive resistance to achieve her goals. She used nonviolent means to distract her suitors while she got on with running her estate and raising her family. Her character was above suspicion, she was truthful and self controlled so she inspired confidence. She simply did not cooperate with coercive forces her suitors tried to impose. Look to quotes about Gandhi and you will see the same qualities described as Penelope possessed.

Harriet Tubman; if you're not racist, she did a lot of good helping the slaves get to Canada. EDIT: NVM, lol. I didn't see the 'still alive' part.

Tara J is so freaking stupid. Gay marriage is legal in her own country and she's not trying to ban it there? HAHA.

A hero, or heroine, is one who saves another person at the risk of losing one's own life. A hero can, by pure logic alone, never be a sports star or celebrity of any kind, so I'm sure there have to be women out there who have saved a life, or lives, without seeking any glory for their actions.

Ok, now I'm pissed... this PC lib crap is pure crap... if this weren't an election year, none of it would be happening. To those agree with the charges, please, do not support me as a Troop... I don't want it. I think I'll file this under "blame America first/ murtha type crap"

Here are the problems with this type of prosecution. 1. If a Soldier, Sailor, Marine, or Airman comitts a crime while they are subject to the UCMJ they are required to be tried by a military court which also means military jurors. That alone would overturn any conviction if it was appealed. 2. He may or may not have committed a crime by killing whom he did. However, there is no telling what happened between the time that he detained them and the time that he fired. Did they break the flex cuffs (plastic restraints) and create a threat? Was one of them trying to set off a booby-trap? Was everyone in the building detained or did a fired fight break out and the detainees became casualties of the fire fight? Did the detainees die from wounds received prior to being detained? All of those questions have to be asked before he can be convicted. 3. Was he given an illegal order? The writers of the AP make it sound that way, but as we all know writers have their own agendas. In the case that he was given an illegal order and followed it he would be guilty, but so would the leader that gave it. In all of these cases there are so many gray areas that have to be probed and the prosecution has to hope for an ideal set of witnesses and evidence to prove everything that happened. That is the greatness of the presumption of innocence, and even a law student could see the problems facing the prosecution. So very frankly I see this as being media grandstanding more than anything else. Look at the Marine that shot a wounded combatant reaching for a weapon. They tried him and less than a week into the trial the prosecution withdrew the charges and he was reinstated to full duty and has been promoted since then. So don't blow a gasket over the initial reports out of the potential of a crime being committed and remember that the presumption of innocence still applies to everyone.
