A lot of people believe Chelsea Manning should still be in prison. You would think that a person who was lucky enough to be pardoned by Obama would be a little more grateful.

Chelsea Manning, convicted leaker, compares living in US to prison
Convicted leaker Chelsea Manning may be out of a military prison, but she said Monday her newfound freedom feels anything but free.
As part of her first public appearance in the United Kingdom, Manning spoke at the Royal Institution in London on a variety of topics, including President Trump and how “drastically different” the world is, according to The Guardian.
“This whole notion that you get out of prison and you are free now turned out to be a bit of a downer in that sense,” she said Monday. “Because what happened, we really built this large, big prison, which is the United States, in the meantime – it was already happening, it just really intensified.
Manning said the “surveillance systems, the cameras, or the police presence,” have made the U.S. seem less free.
“You think about the fact that we have walls around our country, and that is very much the same thing that is inside a prison,” she told a crowd Monday. “I see a lot of similarities between the world out here and the world that was in there.”
