  1. I think it’s a shame. In this ay and age, we are tolerant of such tyrants who would jail a woman in her house for more tha a decade, she has lived in a prison..i think , she should have never ever gone to trial in the first place, she was already serving a sentence..the men are petty tyrants..they are using her as a symbol..an identity which they have held as a hostage for too long.. I am quite sure that the myanmar leaders are going to have individual experiences and will realise that they are nothing but a bunch of thugs..who would drag a woman from her family and lock her up..it’s not about ideology, IT’S ABOUT BEING A MAN..AND BEING A WOMAN ABUSE..WHICH IS WHAT YOU ALL ARE..AND I HOPE AND PRAY AND PLAY THAT YOUR DAMN COUNTRY DROWNS IN HAIL AND YOU WILL EVER SLEEP AGAIN IN PEACE..IF SHE DIES, YOU ALL DIE!.
