(or at least universal for the sex that cares about protecting freedoms)

You're engaging in this sort of collectivist thinking here. Neither sex cares about protecting freedoms. There are a few individuals of each sex who do, and overall probably more of them are men than women, but that's as close as you can get to your remark — which, in case you don't realize it, is more likely to be alienating than persuasive.

Running would suck, but it would suck less than thirty years in a medieval federal prison. It probably wouldn't suck less than six months or a year, though, which is what he was realistically looking at. And it would suck a lot less than being dead.

But that's just my opinion, and it was his call. RIP.
