The story of Roger Stone is worth learning about.
He was sentenced to jail- at first 9 years- then with huge controversy, it was 4 years. Yet there is no crime. Nothing. He is hated by powerful people, and they literally HATE what he represents. He refused to lie.
Why do innocent people go to jail. Because they tell the truth. It happens all the time, frequently.
Why did your mother send me to jail? Same reason. Hatred of people who tell the truth.
