This Day in the History of Reckless Mercy

On this day in 1953, the Fulgencio Batista regime sentenced Fidel Castro to 15-years in prison for his part in the failed first rebellion. Castro would be taking over Batista's government less than 8 years later. Note to dictators everywhere, execute those who lead a rebellion against you. It really is safer, especially when the rebel says he's never going to give up his activities, as Castro did.
