The first three categories are sad, but legal and in the case of veterans, a choice made by themselves. The last category is illegal governmental over-reach. That's not media hypocrisy. The media cannot do anything about the first three categories. But they can sure blow the whistle on the last one. And yes, this discussion is in the wrong place. But as long as it is here, the question must be answered.
How is the last category illegal? Show me a single example, here or anywhere in the world that children are allowed to go to jail with their parent.
