The Dissenter over at firedoglake.com has continuing updates from today’s Manning unlawful pretrial confienment evidentiary session (Day 9), here. From their 11:00 am update:
Government cross-examined CWO2 Barnes and finished. One highlight: when talking about psychiatric evaluations and how she considered them when deciding Manning’s custody/classification, she said, “They would say from psychiatric standpoint there’s really nothing there, but we all know you don’t have to have a mental health issue to want to kill yourself.” She then cited Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher who just killed himself.
We’ll provide a link to any wrap up later.
