Start your week off right with Vince in the Bay!! It's Manic Monday. As the world continues to devolve into chaos, at least seems so if you watch the news or Twitter, we try to make sense of it all.

Today Peter Ludlow wrote a NYT piece on civil disobedience in the digital age. He touched on the cases of Aaron Swartz, Jeremy Hammond, Bradley/Chelsea Manning, and Edward Snowden. Agree with them or not, these individuals sacraficed their lives for what they deemed a greater common good.

However many supporters of these individuals seem to believe they deserve some sort of immunity from their crimes because they were either entrapped and/or exposing larger malfeasance by government and corporate institutions.

Should these whistle blowers be prosecuted to the full extent of the law? Should they be aquitted of their crimes because they help the greater good? These questions and more will be raised tonight! Call in!
