UPDATE: Chelsea Manning

Chelsea Elizabeth Manning (born Bradley Edward Manning, December 17, 1987) is a former United States Army soldier who was convicted by court-martial in July 2013, of violations of the Espionage Act and other offenses, after disclosing to WikiLeaks nearly 750,000 classified, or unclassified but sensitive, military and diplomatic documents. She was serving a 35-year sentence at the maximum-security U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth until President Obama commuted her sentence a few days before leaving office.

On January 9th, she tweeted this to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
