Morris Pollard (Jonathan’s father) and David Kirshenbaum argue that Jonathan Pollard, convicted of spying for Israel in 1985, should be freed. The key passage:
Jonathan was never accused of intending to, or even of having reason to believe that the information he transmitted to Israel could cause injury to America. Indeed, 22 years after Jonathan’s arrest, no evidence has ever been presented of any damage caused to America by his actions, or any consequence that would even begin to justify his life sentence or his continued imprisonment.
I’ve always thought that prosecuting Pollard was the moral equivalent of prosecuting someone for spying for Indiana.
