Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR), a non-profit organization of psychologists committed to social change and social justice, has written a letter to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, protesting ” the needless brutality of the conditions to which PFC Bradley Manning is being subjected” at the Marine Corps brig at Quanitco, Virginia. The tortuous conditions of Manning’s confinement are similar to those of America’s Supermax prisons, except Manning has not been convicted of any crime.
