It Happened Again

On October 11, Pvt Richard Bunch, 19, was shot and killed while allegedly trying to escape from a work detail. Reportedly Bunch was not sane and had a long history of attempted AWOLs. With the help of lawyer Terrence Hallinan, the deceased GIs parents are going to file suit against the Government because of the Army's failure to provide psychiatric care.

Since Bunch's death, twenty-eight soldiers in the Presidio stockade have refused to go on work detail in protest of the slaying. They have been confineed to a single cell and have received repeated threats that the militaary will chaarge them with Article 94, mutiny, which is a Capital Offense and can bring a death penalty.
