Posted on 08/25/2012 8:42:18 AM PDT by george76
Constitutional Attorney John Whitehead, who represented wrongly-incarcerated marine Brandon J. Raub for free, appeared on Glenn Becks program to talk about how Brandon is unfortunately not alone in many ways.

I’ve met Whitehead in person. He’s pretty much a class act.
So! Who will take care of my cat when she gets sick?
I saw the interview on GBTV.
The attorney also said that the government is encouraging returning vets to apply for PTSD treatment.
I think that the attorney was implying that the Obama government is doing this for some nefarious reason, which it may, or may not be as far as I know.
But, there are some vets in need of such help. The problem as I see it is that there is such a stigma against those vets from future employment being labeled as ‘crazy’, etc. that many vets in need refuse and go without treatment.
The fear mongers are picking up a lot. IMHO, stories like this are made to make people think twice about speaking out.
did you read the posts. there are some on there that did not like what the vet had to say so thought it was alright to put him in the nut house with no warrant or even a hearing.
Where is the article and back up information of this round up? Does no one write any longer, is all they is talk?
Crazy people can’t have guns, even if they know how to use them. Or maybe it’s nothing at all.
” So! Who will take care of my cat when she gets sick?”
Plenty of room at my house. Her Highness could use some company.
Oh wait...I’m a veteran too...
If they voluntarily apply for PTSD, they can be declared to be mentally incompetent.
Mentally incompetent people CANNOT POSSESS FIREARMS!!

Yes. Also some states may require PTSD to be entered on a vets drivers license.
Troops Are So Stigmatized By PTSD The Military Wants The Disorder’s Name Changed
Eloise Lee | May 7, 2012,
The military hopes to remove stigma associated with PTSD by replacing “disorder” with the word “injury” which could encourage troops, and even civilians who suffer from it, to seek treatment instead of bottling it up out of shame.
Greg Jaffe at the Washington Post reports the issue is coming to the forefront because the American Psychiatric Association’s “bible of mental illnesses” the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is being updated for the first time in 12 years.
To put that into context, the events of 9/11 and the start of the Afghan and Iraq wars have all occurred since the manual was last revised. In this recent time span, the term “PTSD” has often cropped up negatively in the public sphere whenever a service member or veteran commits an inexplicable crime, even though the disorder may not be the cause whatsoever. Frustratingly, this leads to PTSD developing an unwarranted bad rap.
Pinging for your possible interest
So much for military psychiatrists.
I have an acquaintance who just got out of the Marines after two tours in Catboxistan.
He is one of those guys who was totally UNFAZED by combat. He thought some of it was fun and was famous for shooting videos in the middle of firefights. He is exactly the same happy and sane guy he was before he enlisted.
He went to the VA hospital to seek medical care for some injuries he sustained in combat. The VA posted an armed VA cop beside him in the waiting room and even had the cop go to the bathroom with him.
Needless to say, he says he will never go the the VA hospital again.
The commies have infested every department of the fedgov and agencies.
All this falls in line with the declaration by Homeland inSecurity about a year or so ago that labeled Veterans as a terrorist group. Hussein and his regime want to ensure that when he refuses to relinquish power, or when he openly abrogates The Constitution, that those sworn to uphold it will be in no position to resist.
