Governor Rick Scott Please RELEASE Ian Manuel from prison (he did not kill anyone)

Because it is cruel and unusual punishment to sentence a child to 65 years who did not kill anyone. Why should Gov. Rick Scott blatantly ignore the May 10, 2010 ruling from the Supreme Court Graham v Florida. that juvenile offenders can't be sentenced to life without parole for non-homicide offenses committed before age 18. He has been in close management solitary confinement for 18 of those years in a room the size of a closet.
