Former Master Sergeant Paul David Adkins testified for the longest stretch of this morning’s sentencing hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning, attempting to justify his deficient response to several incidents that should’ve warranted further attention.

Manning sent Adkins an email titled “My Problem,” with an attached photo of Manning dressed in a wig and makeup. It began,

This is my problem.  I’ve had signs of it for a very long time.  It’s caused problems within my family.  I thought a career in the military would get rid of it.  It’s not something I seek out for attention, and I’ve been trying very, very hard to get rid of it by placing myself in situations where it would be impossible.  But, it’s not going away; it’s haunting me more and more as I get older.  Now, the consequences of it are dire, at a time when it’s causing me great pain it itself.

Adkins referenced the email to mental health professionals but didn’t explain its contents, and he didn’t take the matter to his commander.

In a December 2009 counseling session with Sgt. Daniel Padgett, Manning flipped over a desk, sending government computers crashing to the floor. Chief Warrant Officer Joshua Ehersman testified this morning that Manning then gestured toward the weapon rack, so Ehersman restrained him in a Full Nelson hold. Adkins was informed of the matter but again didn’t tell his company commander. 

In perhaps the most troubling incident, Adkins came upon Manning curled up in a ball on the floor of a supply room, with a knife beside him on the floor. He had carved the words “I want” onto the chair next to him. Adkins said he calmed Manning down but didn’t take him to see anyone.

“Why wouldn’t you take him to mental health immediately?” asked defense lawyer David Coombs. Adkins couldn’t explain. 

Instead of taking him to a doctor, Adkins simply sent him back to work, as “there was stuff to do.” Clearly not “calm,” Manning punched Specialist Jihrleah Showman later in that work shift.

Adkins was reprimanded and ultimately reduced in rank for his failures to respond to these incidents. CW2 Kyle Balonek, who expected to be supervising intelligence analysts, testified this morning that Adkins “circumvented” him when handling soldiers’ issues. 

Coombs had Adkins, who still appears to be suffering from ‘memory loss’ that none of his former colleagues could confirm, reread his own statements in which he said that he was “unsure” of Manning was a “threat to himself” and that he was a “constant source of concern.”  He asked Adkins why he didn’t remove Manning from the Secret Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) if that was the case, and Adkins said that doing so would have removed his second Shi’a analyst. He would’ve had to move CW2 Balonek over to the night shift, reducing the unit’s “abilities to analyze and assess the biggest threat by a third.”

15 “Red flags” ignored

Lillian Smith, the government-appointed subject matter expert on information assurance for the defense team, testified about her review of the Army CID’s initial investigation into Bradley Manning’s disclosures, the 15-6 investigation into the unit failures that led up to the disclosures, and the Article 32 pretrial hearing in December 2011.

Smith identified 15 “red flags” that should have alerted Manning’s superiors that he might not be “suitable” to receive or maintain his security clearance, dating as far back as his Advanced Individual Training in 2008, all the way up to the incidents that Adkins failed to address.

Manning picked on in Iraq

Sheri Walsh, a brigade legal soldier, befriended Manning over the course of their deployment in Iraq. She often invited him to eat with her and over time, they began to talk at some length. She testified about fellow soldiers picking on him, including an incident in which one soldier punched a door to hit Manning in the face. 

Lorena DeFrank (formerly Lorena Cooley) testified that she had referred to Manning as the “runt” of their unit, as he was physically the smallest.

DeFrank testified that Manning liked to talk about politics with her, and that after their mid-tour leave in early 2010, Manning had asked her to look at an Apache video (Collateral Murder). In April 2010, she said she overheard him in a Skype conversation, in which he expressed concern about public opinion in the United States. 

Bradley to take the stand tomorrow 

David Coombs confirmed after court that Manning will take the stand tomorrow – it will be up to Manning whether he testifies as a witness or whether he gives an unsworn statement that cannot be cross-examined.

  1. There is no reason that this poor man had to go through all this pain and suffering, and be ignored. This man should be let go, seek treatment he was denied, recover and be released to live his life. This is inhumane and cruel, I can’t figure out how he even made it this far. He sure does deserve an award. My best wishes to manning and a positive outcome for the best for Bradley.

  2. i agree with every thing above. you are in my prayers and thoughts every day. you should be free and fully pardoned by obama immmediatly. if not he should be impeeched and BRADLEY MANNING FOR PRESIDENT. how nice it would be to have a truthful brave leader as Mr Manning.

  3. As an itelligence analyst Manning WAS EXPECTED by the US army to sift through SIGACTS. As a soldier he WAS EXPECTED under Nuremberg’s principle to report about any war crimes and facilitate that perpetrators of such acts are brought to justice. He tried to bring these war crimes to the attention of the other soldiers by asking them to see the video. None of them had the courage to stand up. His attempts to do the right thing accordingly to the International Law and Nuremberg’s principle were ignored by his fellow soldiers, supervisors and US press. He asked the question: “What would you do if you saw these disturbing atrocities committed?”. Ignored and not supported, he had just to retain some self-respect and US soldier honesty, he had to report it. How come those in US Army who failed to report these crimes and punish perpertators have impudence to judge him???
    It is Bradley Manning not them who will be seen by people of America as a true defender of the honour of the American soldier.

    • I am an Army Vet and veteran of foreign war. I do not condone what SPC Manning did. In my book two wrongs don’t make a right. However I do agree with the comments that the chaion of command does deserve a lot of the blams for what has transipred. Someone posted that his chain of command should be held more accountable. I could not agree with you more. In my opionion they should start with G.W. Bush. He is the one who got us involved in an unjust war in Iraq in the first place. He, Channey and Rumsfeld, used lies and deception to gain support from Congress. We wasted billions in national treassure (still affecting our economy today) and countless lives on both sides were lost. To me Bush, Channey and Rumsfeld should be on trial too!

  4. As time and history unfold, Bradley Manning AND Edward Snowden will come to be known as heros and defenders of the ideals upon which our country were founded. Bradley Manning exposed the lies and hypocricsy that have become a staple of outer foreign policy. He exposed serious war crimes that remain uninvestigated and unpunished while he was mistreated and held in solitrry confinement for over a year. Worse treatment than that received by terrorists, mass murderers and serial killers while receiving no counseling or support whatsoever. Unlike Edward Snowden, who has sacrificed his citizenship, Bredley Manning has bravely submitted to the flawed and biased US Justice System which is influenced by dishonest politicians and those who are themselves guilty of was crimes. He will not receive a fair trial at their hands. He would have been better off fleeing the country as Edward Snowden has done. Either way, this is poor treatment for someone who has done no lasting damage while informing the public of the shameful behavior on the part of the diplomats and war crimes committed by the unfettered military. Edward Snowden brought our loss of rights and invasion of privacy to the attention of the public and Foreighn governments. They should both receive the Nobel Peace Prize and be celebrated as the outstanding citizens they actually are, not exiled and emprisoned.

  5. When are the real criminals going to be put on trial?

    I just read Chaplain Yee”s Book – For God and Country- A West Point Graduate posted in Quantanamo as a Muslim Chaplain treated so inhumanely as an innocent suspect. So similiar to the treatment of Bradley Manning for 10 months instead of 1.

    Where is the “Honor” in our higher ranking officers?

    Such a national disgrace; I feel ashamed and fear for the future of this country with such arrogant, vicious, ignorance in command.

    As a medic at Fort Meade(1963-5), I suspected the Vietnam War was a mistake from the beginning and to see the same atrocious behavour continued 50 years later is an outrage of giant proportions.

    I urge anyone who can to support awareness of what is going on. Recently, 7 of 10 Vietnam Veterans in Upstate N.Y. where unaware of the trial of Bradley Manning.

    I urge all to join Veterans for Peace—if you are not a Veteran—you can become an associate member—We must build a movement to fight ignorance, arrogance, greed, militarism, apathy and indifference —the real enemies.

    See the film Argo—the first 10 minutes—I learned from an Iranian 52 years ago—The CIA overthrew the elected Premier Mosadeq in Iran in 1953—that is the origin of all that has followed such as the backing of Saddam in the 1980′s.

    The Howland Corollary to the Eisenhower statement, “I Hate War” is” I hate the lies that lead to War”, (i.e.The Vietnam War was a War for Independence first from the French and then from the U.S.
    Peace,
    Pfc. Kent L.Howland-B.S., Michigan State
    M.A.,U of Md.
    C.Ed, S.U.N.Y.
    Above all, I hate the inhumane treatment of prisoners and the numerous violations of the U.S. Constitution.
    The so-called “War on Terror” as presently conducted, is creating more terrorists.
    Where is the “Honor” in “Shock and Awe”. Is not our bombing terror? How much collateral damage is created by the Terror of Drone Warfare?
    Whatever mistakes he may have made; at least, Bradley Manning had the balls to report war crimes.

    • According to the definition of the word “terrorist”, the hijacked U.S. government is currently, by far, the greatest terrorist threat on the planet.

  6. Bradley’s treatment by the military is appalling. But then, the military is exploiting all soldiers in serious ways which is damaging their mental and physical health.

    War is brutal, inhumane, and full of depravity. Operating within this context, we are abusing our young people, murdering civilians, and despoiling the earth.Thank you Bradley for telling the truth about war crimes.

  7. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MENTAL HEALTH ITS FRUAD SLANG. MENTAL HEALTH ARE NOTHING MORE THAN FRAULENT THOUGHT POLICE WHO TORTURE ABUSE LIE TO AND KIDNAP EASY PREY, POLITICAL OPPOENTS, GOV CRITISIZERS, AND ANYONE THEY DONT LIKE FOR SADIST FETISH, SATANIC RITUAL, AND INTIMIDATION.
    gov/mental health workers calls anyone who critisizes it, political oppoents, or anyone who it doesnt like unstable/mental disorder. almost all if not all mental health workers lable everyone mentally ill/disorder exsept something they exclude themself. labeling the accused as unstable or fradgile emotional state always resorts in longer sentence+more torture(posion, electric shock, strapped down)than otherwise. disorder=disobey order, its in the eyes of the controller, an individual opinion of the controller. phycologists are fraud/thought police.
    mental health/behavioral health is fraud slang(there is no such thing)=thought police to probe peoples “fitness”(fraud slang)or purge anyone who is agianst gov murder/torture of innocents..gov calls them unstable. eval=measure value. if your agianst gov murder/torture tyrants lable you valueable for torture to set an example, tho not valueable for gov jobs. maybe the suicide were murders of potential leakers.
    MENTAL HEALTH WORKERS ARNT DRS. orwellian oposite speak, a dr isnt someone that tortures polical dissadents or anyone they dont like, ex:cross dressers or people that carve things into chairs-ALOT OF PEOPLE CARVE WORDS INTO THINGS. if a phyciatrist was a dr than so would every meth dealer.

    CROSS DRESSING ISNT A MENTAL PROBLEM. BAN FROM ALL GOV JOBS WHO EVER IS CROSS DRESSER PHOBE. you call cross dressing a mental problem, tho murdering and tortureing people isnt.
    PEOPLE ARNT PERFECT THEY DONT DESERVE TO BE ABUSED AND KIDNAPPED OVER LITTLE THINGS, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME YOU WANT TO LET GOV PAYED MURDERS/torturers KEEP THEIR JOB AND RUN LOOSE.
    “Coombs had Adkins, who still appears to be suffering from ‘memory loss’ that none of his former colleagues could confirm, reread his own statements in which he said that he was “unsure” of Manning was a “threat to himself” and that he was a “constant source of concern.” ”
    he probably wasnt suffering memory loss, coombs or some other tyrant most likley added in fake statements pretending adkins wrote it, that adkins didnt write.
    its not illegal to be a threat to yourself, and they havent brought up any stories where he was, tyrants often use the lie “threat to himself” to use as an excuse to torture someone in solitray confinment. “constant source of concern”? GOV COVERING UP MURDER AND TORTURE AND PAYING PEOPLE TO MURDER AND TORTURE ARE A CONSTANT SOURCE OF CONCERN!
    Secretary of the Army, John McHugh..”whether his superiors missed warning signs that he was downloading documents he had no need to read,”

    “On 27 January 2011, McClatchy reported that investigators found that Pfc. Manning’s “direct supervisor” had “warned that Manning had thrown chairs at colleagues and shouted at higher ranking soldiers in the year he was stationed at Fort Drum, NY, and advised that Manning shouldn’t be sent to Iraq.” An anonymous military official also told the Washington Post in a 1 February 2011 report that Pfc. Manning had “balled up fists and screamed at higher-ranking “soldiers.” might be a lie, want to hear what manning has to say. and you dont give any reasons. HOW MANY LITTLE BAD THINGS HAVE YOU DONE IN YOUR LIFE!

  8. mental illness=there is no such thing as mental illness. no one is mentally ill. its a slang word and not proper english. its not a medical disease, illness, health problem, or brain disorder. its a lie.
    if “mental illness” was a brain disorder/disease, brain chemical imbalance, or neurological, it wouldnt be mental, it would be physical
    no behavior or misbehavior can be a disease or illness
    the only way to tell if “mental illness” existed would be physical test. there is no physical test to prove mental illness is possible.
    if there was physical proof of mental illness, it wouldnt be mental illness, it would be physical
    its impossible to prove mental illness exists cuz it doesnt exist no scientific evidence of mental illness. no mental illness has ever been proven to exist
    reportedly there is no test available to test/asses brain chemical status and no such thing as brain chemical imbalance

    mental=mind. whatever a person chooses to do/ free will. mind=soul. a person’s mind is what makes a person who they are. the mind leaves the body when the body dies.
    a person can never be out of their mind or out of control of their mind, because a person is their mind, to loose their mind would be to loose themself, thus they would cease to exist
    its impossible for a person to loose their soul/freewill, if they did they would no longer be themself.

    mind control= only an individual can control their own mind. mind controls brain, brain can never control mind. altering brain wont alter mind, it can alter physical ability.
    if someone else controls your mind, your no longer in control of your mind, your mind is no longer your mind, your no longer you, and their not controlling your mind, and the only way to know would be to control your body.
    the only thing everyone always has absolute exclusive control over is their mind, thoughts and choices. its impossible for a person to be “completely unable to control themself” or loose control of their mind
    it will always be impossible for anything to control another person’s mind or decisions. it is possible to control someone’s body by moving it with physical force.
    being on, going off, or not being on drugs, cant cause or prevent violence, crime, happiness, anger, sadness, fear, sanity, insanity, emotions, or behavior. a person makes themself happy or violent.
    drugs and electric shock cant override/take away a person’s free will, and arnt a mind-control or mind-altering device
    people do what they want, people control themselves drugs dont have free will, people do. drugs arnt alive, people are.
    drugs cant control the behavior a person chooses to do. drugs cant make anyone choose to do anything. drugs arnt to blame for anyone’s choices.
    drugs will never be able to control a person’s thoughts or decisions. people control there thoughts and decisions people make decisions, drugs cant make decisions for people
    its impossible for drugs, electronic devices, brain implants, or electric shock to control thought, voluntary body movement, or behavior.
    its impossible for a drug to cause behavior or alter someone’s mood. behavior and mood/emotion are choices a person makes.
    drugs cant control people like robots. if something could control someone’s body like a robot, it can never control the mind. people arnt mindless robots that drugs/chemicals or electricity can program.
    drugs effect the physical body, not a person’s thoughts.
    drugs can sometimes control a person’s physical body, by causing partial or full paralyzation, death, physical illness, pain, pain relief, cureing physical health problems, or makeing them physically healthy.

    illness= physical/ biological illness
    disease=physical/biological disease. a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology(function) must be proven and established
    chills and fever are symptoms. malaria and typhoid are diseases. diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical test.
    health= physical, not mental

    diagnosis= a physically proven diagnosis of a physical/biological health problem. labeling someone mentally ill isnt diagnosis, it’s stigmatation

    phyciatrists arnt drs. if they were than so would every meth dealer.
    dr/medical professional= someone that trys to repair physical/ biological health problems.

    patient= someone that is being treated for physical/ biological health problems
    there is no such thing as a phyciatric/mental patient mental health workers refer to everyone including all humans and animals on earth as a mental/ phyciatric patient

    clinic- a room/office where drs screen/test for, or treat physical/biological health problems. their is no such thing as a “mental clinic”. there is no such thing as “clinically insane”

    treatment- how someone is treated. a person can be treated good or bad. torture is bad treatment.

    medication= a drug that is for repairing physical/ biological health problems including pain
    “phyciatric/psychotropic/phyc medication/ med” is not medication. if it was then cyanide and mustard gas would be too.
    all phyc drugs have side effects that include death, coma, and serious physical problems, are more dangerous than meth, heroin, narcotics, and prescription pain killer abuse, and have no positive effects.
    phyc drugs are legalized drug abuse. phyc drugs can cause people to be tired, lethargic, and weak, thats how the evil control freaks want them.
    phyc/mental health drugs are debilitating and often used as weaponized tranqs and chemical restraints. sedation makes people sedated. tranquilizers make people tranquil
    scientific studies compared phyc-drugs w placebos and concluded phyc-drugs were ineffective. no scientific evidence of the effectiveness of phyc-treatments. no proof phyc drugs improve behavior.
    mental health workers admit their is no scientific evidence to verify effectiveness of phyc drugs
    scientific studies concluded exercise, eating healthy, and socializing work much better to make people happy than drugs do
    LSD and PCP used to be falsely put out as a safe effective phyc drug with no bad side effects
    prozac 94% fluoride rat poison 100%fluoride fluoride is haz waste from business, illegal to dump in env or landfill, they pay to put it in public water supply w/o public’s consent.
    nazis put fluoride in the water to make people weak and dum so their easier to control.
    30,000 die from gun/y(12,669 homicide, 17,331 suicide) reportedly according to FBI
    36,000 die from phyc drugs/y. every month 3000 people die from phyc drugs
    100mil world wide on phyc drugs. 9mil us school children on phyc drugs
    90% of riddilin is consumed by school children. methal fenidate/riddlin used to chemically restrain “ADHD” children
    selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors(SSRI) dont control mood

    according to almost all if not all phyciatrists, counslers, phycologists, and mental health workers, every human and animal is mentally ill/disturbed/deranged/disabled/impaired/unstable/deluded/ emotionally disturbed/ has a mental disorder/syndrome/issue/problem/ mental health problem/challenge/ insane, except mental health workers exclude themself sometimes.
    they call happiness, every emotion, thought, and action, the act of being alive, being social, anti social behavior, fear/anxiety/stress, anger, sadness/depression, bi-polar(mood swing/ sometimes your happy, sometimes your sad/angry/scared, being a political dissident, gov critics, not conforming to the norm, wanting to be unique, doing an unwanted behavior, defending yourself, wanting to exercise, moving, being poor, disagreeing w/ them, or not submitting, a mental illness/disease.
    schizophrenic= a person that hallucinates only the individual that hallucinates can know if they are hallucinating because no one can see someone else’s hallucinations
    paranoid= very worried
    they make up fake “diagnosis” and call it mental illness= autism(anti-social, sometimes doesnt conform to norm), aspberger’s(milder than autism), attention deficit disorder/ADD(doesnt pay attention to the evil control freak), attention deficit hyperactive disorder ADHD(same as add but more hyper/energetic, its good and healthy to be hyper/energetic or else you get fat, weak, sick, and dum. evil control freaks dont want their victims energetic/hyper), turrets(blurting out inappropriate language and/or twitching alot), post traumatic stress disorder/PTSD(being fearful based on past events), ODD(opposition defiant disorder)anyone who disobeys. everyone has the right to oppose and defy evil. disorder=disobey order. pbafacts.com is fraud
    “calm down/ relax”=seditary tired lazy lethargic unhealthy partially-paralyzed slow. evil sadists dont want their victims to be energetic or to move, they want them weak so their easier to control.

    1 out of 5 (20%) americans falsely face to face “diagnosed” mentally ill/phyc patient by a mental health worker.
    the only reason its not near 100% is because there isnt enough mental health workers to do that and their not powerful enough to force everyone into their building.
    mental health workers lie and claim they need more funding because not enough people are able to see counslers and phyciatrists, actually its very easy for anyone to see them and gov will (and shouldnt) fund it if they cant afford it, almost all people that see mental health workers dont want to and are forced or coerced to.
    almost all if not all people get labled mentally ill the first time they go to counseling
    people dont need insurance to be “diagnosed” mentally ill, as gov pays for those w/o insurance w/o first filling out paper work
    ordinary people can be labled mentally ill and put into a data base w/o ever seeing a mental health worker, w/o their knowledge, and w/o insurance
    real drs can also “diagnosis” any patient as mentally ill anytime for any or no reason, w or w/o the patients knowledge
    people are often “diagnosed” mentally ill against their will
    they put public ads on tv calling ghandi, lincon, and others mentally ill. and calling mental illness a potentially fatal biological disease, almost everyone knows that an obvious lie.
    they continually make up new fraudulent “illnesses”, lieing claiming they have evidence when they dont, paying off cops and regulators, and makeing up all types of lies.

    “mental illness” is in the eye of the controller/ mental health workers.
    just being told you are something doesnt make it true. just because someone is labeled as something, doesnt make it true.
    people directly labled face to face by a mental health worker as mentally ill are no different than those that arnt, besides the labeling
    never discriminate against someone based on them being labeled as mentally ill. never put mentally ill into a seperate group.
    never call anyone mentally ill/ mentally unstable or others might discriminate against them, lock them up, and poison them based only on your words.
    if a person chose to do something you dislike, call them bad, very/extremely bad, mean, wrong, cruel, horrible, horrific, discusting, nasty, naughty, rude, immoral, unethical, inhumane, angry, fearful, dum, or disobedient, dont call them mentally ill
    if someone is sad, call them sad, dont call them mentally ill

    mental health workers want to make and keep people mentally ill, misdiagnosis people as mentally ill, sell as many of the most expensive unnecessary mental health treatments, drugs, and sessions to everyone including animals, and/or sadisticly offensivly abuse people and animals. they often use lies, tricks, deception, force, threats, violence, and criminal means to get $. they say everyone(except mental health workers) is and will always be mentally ill, will always need to buy drugs, treatments, and counseling sessions for the rest of their lives, lieing claiming drugs will fix mental illness when it doesnt, lieing to people telling them their sad, antisocial, or suicidal… when their not, trying to make people think their mentally ill, trying to provoke people to behave oddly or inappropriately to make an excuse to be more forceful, acting like their smarter, better, and superior to the “mentally ill”, acting like their there to help the mentally ill. they especially prey on children, the elderly, and the poor.
    $50/5min phyCIAtrist. $100/hr counselor $1000+/m for drugs. $2000+/day in mental institution. plus many other very expensive treatments. most of this is at the cost of the tax-payer.
    reportedly about 50% of $ spent on social security, medicare, medicade is spent on “mental health”

    “commiting/commitment/institutionalizing/emergency detaining/preventative detaining”=illegal arrest/imprisonment/kidnap/abduction and poison/chemically restrain, and abuse/torture of innocent victims
    mental institution/ “mental hospital”/ phyc ward/ loony bin/ insane asylum/ shrink=torture chamber
    mental health workers painfully torture innocent victims with: poison gas shots and pills, electric shock, electrocution, electric chairs, electric shock or chemical implants, locked in ice baths sometimes for months or until you die, tightly strapped down to tables, chained inside cage, locked in padded rooms, restraint jackets, paralyzation, surgery, mutilation, dissections, lobotomies, experiments, murder,
    abuse, and misuse “mental hygiene laws” in the false name of “helping”, “giving care” or “fixing mental illness”, they lie and say “the recipient wanted it”
    people that tell the truth about being tortured by mental health workers are sometimes then labeled by the mental health workers as having “false memory syndrome”

    sometimes people “diagnosed” as mentally ill pretend to have a mental disorder, or sometimes drug takers lie and say the drug helps them be happier or make better choices or “calm them down/ aka make them weak, slow, tired, lethargic, and lazy”, so they can get special privileges/benefits like:
    -not having to do as much as other students in school
    -placebo effect
    -get $ from gov social security that gives $ and health insurance to people that claim to need phyc drugs or claim to be mentally ill/mentally disabled(it rewards people for being mentally ill and takeing drugs, and rewards drug dealers and social workers for often useing abusive and deceptive practices to get $) because they are dependent on that $ to live w/o other options, desperate, have been abused and neglected by society, and have no where else to get their needs
    -get into low income housing or certain gov-subsidized benefits
    - or because they are forced or threatened into it. they may have been abused or tortured by the drug dealers/mental health workers, and threatened w kidnap, abuse, or torture if they dont take drugs, lie about needing/wanting drugs/”mental health treatments”, or obey. so the drug dealers/mental health workers can get insurance $ and/or to sadisticly punish

    reportedly about 4%of crime is associated with, but not caused by the label “mental illness”, and the non “mentally ill” are 25times more likely to commit a crime.
    a criminal is about 5times more likely to be someone that isnt “labled face to face as mentally ill by a paid mental health worker”
    most people labeled mentally ill arnt violent or agressive.
    having a mental disorder doesnt pre-dispose someone to commit crime, and doesnt make them more likely to commit crime
    those labled mentally ill are more likely to be a victim of crime than commit crime.
    mental health workers are much more likely to commit crime than those labled mentally ill
    mental disorder isnt a crime. illegal to arrest/lock up/kidnap, fine/steal from, or ban weapons from people for being mentally ill/disturbed

    immediatly end all gov-funding to “mental health industry, phyc drugs, phyciatrists, counslers”
    phyc drug dealers, phyCIAtrists, “mental health workers”, and most phycologists, phyco-anaylists, counslers, mental/phyco therapists, and social workers, should be fired, loose their license, shut down, charged with fraud, and owe all customers a refund.

    watch futurama insane asylum.

  9. manning’s lawyers really really want him to be tortured in prison for life. manning’s defense lawyers are liars, arnt there to defend manning, they are doing the oposite of defending manning. his lawyers are anti-tranny, seemingly anti-gay, think manning is mentally unstable for whistleblowing, is trying to make manning look as bad as possible and claiming manning is guilty of crime and did wrong, and thinks he shuldnt have been given access that his supervisers didnt act upon warning signs that he was looseing control emotional outbursts(according to tyrants warning signs/looseing control/emotional outbusts=dislikeing gov corruption)ONLY MUDERERS THINIK PEOPLE WHO REPORT MURDER ARE UNSTABLE, INSANE, and unfit. manning was the best person for the job. manning’s lawyers are lieing about wanting to reduce the sentence, instead they want to make it as severe as possible. i suspect their motive is they are being paid by gov to do it, otherwise they are a sadist/satanist.
    its almost impossible for anyone to be so stupid to let people that want you to be tortured in life in prison, to be your lawyer. Most likley manning is being illegally forced agianst his will to have these lawyers. by law people always have the option to go lawyerless and represent themself. manning shuold have fired his lawyers the moment they started trying to get him locked up or showed anti-tranny behavior, and represent himself. free state atorneys always try to convict who they are sapose to defend, even if the accused is innocent-always represent yourself instead of haveing a free state atorney.
    gov/mental health workers calls anyone who critisizes it, political oppoents, or anyone who it doesnt like unstable/mental disorder. almost all if not all mental health workers lable everyone mentally ill/disorder exsept something they exclude themself. labeling the accused as unstable or fradgile emotional state always resorts in longer sentence+more torture(posion, electric shock, strapped down)than otherwise. disorder=disobey order, its in the eyes of the controller, an individual opinion of the controller. phycologists are fraud/thought police.
    mental health/behavioral health is fraud slang(there is no such thing)=thought police to probe peoples “fitness”(fraud slang)or purge anyone who is agianst gov murder/torture of innocents..gov calls them unstable. eval=measure value. if your agianst gov murder/torture tyrants lable you valueable for torture to set an example, tho not valueable for gov jobs. maybe the suicide were murders of potential leakers.
    permantenly revolk manning’s lawyer’s lawyer license for fraud and charge refund.
    “Defense lawyers say the incident is crucial to their effort to convince a military judge not to impose the maximum 90-year sentence on Manning”liars, orwellian oposite speak.
    manning lawyers think its crutial to try to make manning look violent dangerous and insane to use an excuse to torture him in solitary confinement for the rest of his life.
    ITS ILLEGAL TO USE HISTORY BEHAVIOR AS PART OF THE DESICION FOR SENTENCEING! history behavior isnt sapose to be allowed in court. ban history behavior from being allowed in court.everyone must be treated=under the law, u only sapoe to be punished for the crime you commited, its illegal to extra punish based on history behavior.
    “behaviour that alarmed colleagues”aka dislikeing gov corruption or maybe refered to flipping a table over-that isnt as big a deal as. COVERING UP MURDER and gov corruption AND LETTING MURDERERS RUN LOOSE and punishing the whistlblower IS BEHAVIOR THAT SHOULD ALARM YOU!
    “anger issues”maybe he was angry because of the gov corruption.

    LIARS they provided no evidence of damage, MANNING provided evidence of damage and murder.
    Fields also said she had “no recollection” of another incident documented in her sworn statement, relating to an occasion when Manning was found lying on the floor and “rocking back and forth” for an hour. Pressed by Coombs, she insisted: “Seriously sir, I cannot remember I ever witnessed anything like that.”
    combs probaly made up fake statment thats why she cant remember it happening because it didnt. nothing wrong with rocking back in forth on the floor, they put that in movies to try to make people look crazy its all made up.
    “Manning had flipped over a table during a heated conversation with one of his superiors, and did not know Manning once “had to be restrained from reaching for a weapon” during a counseling session.””history of violent outbursts and psychological evaluations during his military training”that might be a lie, i want to hear what manning has to say about that before ill consider it. if true he might have been defending himself or angry because he was being kidnapped or assulted. if he unessicarily damaged property that wasnt his, charge him repair costs. phyc evals are routein for adv military members sometimes.
    “Ehresman continued. “I felt that he was going toward a weapons rack and I felt I needed to detain him.”.”Padgett said he moved Manning away from a gun rack while a colleague restrained him”. “had to be restrained from reaching for a weapon, manning’s attorney said ” YOUR STORY DOESNT MATCH UP CAUGHT IN AN OBVIOUS LIE! manning’s lawyers are lieing about manning. FEELING LIKE SOMEONE IS GOING TOWARD IT DOESNT=HE IS GOING TORWARD IT! in other words you wernt sure if he was going toward it, or maybe he wasnt going torward it! going torward the weapon rack doesnt = reaching for a weapon. FEELING like you need to retrain someone doesnt=you need to.
    “Manning overturned a table, spilling a radio and computer onto the floor and had to be restrained, the supervisor, Sgt. Daniel Padgett, testified during a pretrial proceeding.”might be a lie, i want to hear what manning sas to say. he probally didnt have to be retrained.

    if manning wanted to leave iraq he shuld have just left, theres no need to argue about it, unless he couldnt afford the ride home.
    LIE: Bradley Manning’s lawyers try for a lighter sentence in the WikiLeaks case, saying he was unstable and shouldn’t have been in Iraq.
    manning should have been in iraq if he wanted to be, ONLY PEOPLE WHO DONT WANT MURDERERS TO BE EXPOSED DONT WANT MANNING TO HAVE BEEN IN IRAQ OR HAVE THAT CLEARANCE!, the murderer’s manning exposed shulnt be running loose on mass murder rampages in iraq.
    if your not confused, angry and overwhelmed over gov’s paying people to mass murder, thers something wrong with you.
    “In Iraq, Manning had more emotional outbursts. One episode prompted commanders to remove the bolt from his rifle, rendering it unusable.”might be a lie, wana hear what mannning has to say, and what was the episode? useing the word epiosde to make it sound crazy or scary.
    “And in early May 2010, a few weeks before his arrest, Manning punched another supervisor in the face, prompting a commander to move him from the secure workplace to a supply room.” it might be a lie, or maybe manning was defening himself, i want to hear what manning has to say abuot that.
    “exhibited behavior that could have served as a warning he was unsuitable to serve abroad as an intelligence analyst, manning’s lawyer said” warning sign behavior to these tyrants=anyone who doesnt like that gov murders/tortures or lets gov cover up its crimes.
    “The (fake)defense tried to show on Monday that Army commanders failed to notice personality traits that might have made Manning unfit to serve as an intelligence analyst in Iraq” according to these tyrants, personailty traits that make him unfit for gov job is someone who is anti-murder/torture, and anti-covering up gov crimes, tho to these tyrants, murders and tortures are fit for gov jobs.
    “lawyers discussed a psychological assessment report that describes him as having “regressed stages of development” and “narcissistic personality traits. Manning’s lawyer David Coombs said the report was important to explain the motivation for the unauthorized release” only tyrants label people who report their crimes as haveing a disorder.
    “defense”(actually they do the oposite of defening manning) lawyers have portrayed Manning, who is gay, as..struggling with his sexual identity”
    fire the judge, its illegal to not let people use their wi fy in the court parking lot and inside of court, and fire whoever wont let people enter and reenter the court, the court is by constituional law sapose to be public. charge w wiretapping/electrionic tresspass/use of a computer w/o persmission whoever turned the wify devide off remotedly w/o the owner’s permission.
    constitution art VI. “in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury…”tyrants agianst manning are obviously obessessed with illegally overclassifing everything includeing the trial. its illegal to disallow the court to be recoreded, the only reason they dont want it public is beacuse tyrants dont want the public to see or there to be evidence of its lies, hypocrisy, crimes of illegally holding gov-paid positions and arresting innocents.

    “Army neglected to address Bradley Manning’s instability, defense says
    Bradley Manning’s lawyers contend the Army failed to cancel the security clearance of a mentally unstable soldier” u call manning unstable, and call murderers, torturers, and those who cover up murder and torture stable.
    army failed to adress that gov is paying, not fireing, and letting run loose: mass murderers and torturers. army failed to cancle the JOBS and freedom of us mil murderers and torturers.
    “once curled in a fetal position on a storage room floor and clutched his head, a knife at his feet. He carved the words “I want” into a chair.” maybe its a lie i wana hear what manning has to say. theres nothing wrong with that, unless it wasnt his chair, then just charge him a repair cost. maybe he was kidnapped and bored.
    “Army Pfc. Bradley Manning emailed his sergeant a mug shot of himself wearing makeup, dark lipstick and a flowing blond wig.”nothing wrong with that, thats not a sign of emotional distress. nothing wrong w being transgender. ban from gov jobs all cross dresser-phobes and transgender-phobes.
    “Had they done so, Manning’s lawyers contend, he would have lost access to the 700,000 classified war logs, diplomatic cables, “enemy combatant” assessments and other materials that he secretly sent to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, to stop what he considered a coverup of military atrocities and other abuses in Iraq and Afghanistan.”manning’s lawyers are disbeleiveing that there was a coverup of military atrocities and other abuses in Iraq and Afghanistan. tyrants agianst manning already admitted they were war crimes and are only punishing manning because they dont want others to hate them for knowing about their war crimes.
    “They are trying to show that Army commanders ignored signs that the Oklahoma-born soldier was mentally unstable and was nearing a breakdown.” he wasnt nearing a breakdown, tyrants always say that about whistleblowers and gov critisizers.
    manning didnt need to receive counsleing, gov needs to STOP PAYING PEOPLE TO COMMIT MASS MURDER!
    therapy doesnt bear fruit, counslers are fraud.
    He also recalled when Manning once missed formation at Ft. Drum and was found “tensed up and clinched his fists and started screaming.” thats normal. you want to punish someone for this, and let mass murderers and torturers run loose.
    -
    “Why wouldn’t you take him to mental health immediately?” asked defense lawyer David Coombs. Adkins couldn’t explain.
    Instead of taking him to a doctor,”
    MENTAL HEALTH WORKERS ARNT DRS. orwellian oposite speak, a dr isnt someone that tortures polical dissadents or anyone they dont like, ex:cross dressers or people that carve things into chairs-ALOT OF PEOPLE CARVE WORDS INTO THINGS. if a phyciatrist was a dr than so would every meth dealer.
    CROSS DRESSING ISNT A MENTAL PROBLEM. BAN FROM ALL GOV JOBS WHO EVER IS CROSS DRESSER PHOBE. you call cross dressing a mental problem, tho murdering and tortureing people isnt.
    “Coombs had Adkins, who still appears to be suffering from ‘memory loss’ that none of his former colleagues could confirm, reread his own statements in which he said that he was “unsure” of Manning was a “threat to himself” and that he was a “constant source of concern.” ”
    he probably wasnt suffering memory loss, coombs or some other tyrant most likley added in fake statements pretending adkins wrote it, that adkins didnt write.
    its not illegal to be a threat to yourself, and they havent brought up any stories where he was, tyrants often use the lie “threat to himself” to use as an excuse to torture someone in solitray confinment. “constant source of concern”? GOV COVERING UP MURDER AND TORTURE AND PAYING PEOPLE TO MURDER AND TORTURE ARE A CONSTANT SOURCE OF CONCERN!
    Secretary of the Army, John McHugh..”whether his superiors missed warning signs that he was downloading documents he had no need to read,”

    “On 27 January 2011, McClatchy reported that investigators found that Pfc. Manning’s “direct supervisor” had “warned that Manning had thrown chairs at colleagues and shouted at higher ranking soldiers in the year he was stationed at Fort Drum, NY, and advised that Manning shouldn’t be sent to Iraq.” An anonymous military official also told the Washington Post in a 1 February 2011 report that Pfc. Manning had “balled up fists and screamed at higher-ranking “soldiers.” might be a lie, want to hear what manning has to say. and you dont give any reasons. HOW MANY LITTLE BAD THINGS HAVE YOU DONE IN YOUR LIFE!

  10. I’m sad that Bradley’s defense has chosen this course of suggesting mental instability etc.
    He does not need that and deserves better.
    His statement at the start of his trial has clearly shown that what he did, was not the effect of weakness of any kind but on the contrary, a deliberate and very courageous choice.
    His amazing integrity and self-sacrifice deserve admiration and regard, not pity.
