• Sorry Humanist, I commented on the wrong post. I meant to comment on the following post, with the link to the article by the retired Marine.

  • This guy wasn’t a commander of the base. He was a company commander, probably a captain, and probably isn’t familiar with running a brig.

  • I find it interesting that this is the first story where there is no attribution to a military official. Every other story has had comment from a named spokesman. This stinks of misinformation.

    I’ve been following this subject of mistreatment since early this month, and while I agree Bradley has been sitting in a cell too long, I don’t think he’s being singled out. I have a nephew in the Marines, and he says any commander can assign a Marine to suicide watch. He said he once had to spend a couple of nights sitting next to a guy’s bed because he made a suicidal ideation, and that was ordered by his battalion commander. This was in the barracks, not the brig.

    With military suicides running rampant, I don’t find it suprising at all that commanders are being cautious. My nephew is sure the brig commander is well within his authority to assign suicide watch.
