  • Mary Neal What sentence did Mark Bowles receive for having an "illegal" epileptic crisis, Diana Beth? You talked to Mark and he told you about the latest brutality he endured?

  • Diana Beth He received 33 months and another 63 for a total of 99 months in St Cloud Prison. 
    His mug shots told me what happened and again, Mary Neal
  • Diana Beth The first time Stearns County Police beat him in the head when they arrested him out of his hospital bed on April 12, 2013
  • Diana Beth The second time was last Thursday, April 16, 2015 when Stearns County Sheriff's Department took him to prison
  • Diana Beth They keep beating him in the head. I'm filling criminal charges against them for both counts. My son is a vulnerable adult, Mary Neal with brain injuries and brain atrophy. They don't care.
  • Diana Beth I haven't spoken to my son, but the prison tells me that Stearns County sheriff's did this because my son wouldn't get on his knees. He has a titanium plate in his spine and a spacer where his L-1 Vertebra was shattered. He cannot get on his knees. He wouldn't be able to get up again. They took his cane away too.
  • Update on Mark Bowles, U.S. veteran, who was recently sentenced to prison for having an "illegal" epileptic crisis after enduring a trial before a court which reportedly  allowed Bowles to present NO information and evidence in his defense. The Mark Bowles case is discussed in numerous articles in this blog, including
    "Testimony by Diana Sprouse re Mark Bowles"

  • We believe that the way Mark Bowles was and is being treated violates the U.S. Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA), the Civil Rights Act, the Convention Against Torture, and Executive Order 13107, implementing human rights treaties.

  • Diana Beth Thank you Mary Neal for doing this for my son. He called for the first time tonight and said they had slammed his face into the cement when he refused to get on his knees and wasn't walking fast enough for them earlier with his shackles cutting into his ankles. He had been in that restraint chair all day with the shackles breaking through the skin because they were so tight. I hope everyone contacts Governor Mark Dayton about this.

Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. That happens to mentally ill people routinely in the nation's correctional facilities. What happened to Larry Neal? Why are we still asking that question after nearly 12 years? Cover-ups regarding the wrongful deaths of mentally challenged inmates and free people in the USA are common and vile.

Mentally Ill People Deserve Dog Justice!
Mentally Ill Americans Need Dog Justice. Treat mental illness medically, not legally. Support the H.R. 3717 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." The U.S. congressional bill provides for crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers, assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs (subsistence assistance plus mandated treatment) to stop recidivism, resumption of Medicaid insurance for certain facilities, and other needed changes. Support "AIMI vs. USA" to compensate mentally ill people and their families for health discrimination.

You can see the fresh bruising on Mark Bowles' face. His right cheek is red and swollen, and his left eye looks like it is going to be a black eye. His mother, Diana Sprouse, said that Mark was beaten in the Stearn County Sheriff's Office when he refused to get down on his knees. This is something Mark cannot do because of his back injury and operation, wherein discs in his back were replaced with plastic. He literally cannot get down on his knees, even if he must die for noncompliance. It is not a matter of disobeying orders but physical inability. Please call authorities for Mark Bowles. Even if they do nothing and continue to kill him, YOU will feel better for speaking out against the continued persecution of Mark Bowles for being mentally ill and having an epileptic crisis. Thank you in advance.
