THIS DAY


On 29 March 1951 Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were covicted of espionage for revealing atomic secrets.
The entire case against them was a travesty of justice and an example of anti Semitism in the United States.

On 29 March 1971 Army Lt. William L. Calley Jr. was convicted of murdering 22 Vietnamese civilians (mostly women, children and old people) in the My Lai massacre.

The difference is that the Rosenbergs were executed while Calley spent most of his sentence under 'house arrest', until his release by the U.S. government.

Go figure eh.......
