Mark Bowles Jailed, No Defense Allowed

The quest for  profits has apparently overridden all decency in the U.S. legal system. Mark Bowles, a United States veteran with mental illness and epilepsy, is to be sentenced on April 16 (following tax day) for charges that he was not allowed to give any defense for at trial. Bowles has progressive atrophy of his brain, and his prognosis is death. He should probably be in hospice. He is very afraid of dying alone in prison. He is afraid of being accosted again and unable to fight off potential rapists this time. This is an urgent note from his mother:

"Mark is very suicidal again now in jail. He has had three surgeries this week from swallowing objects in jail in the suicide cell. Now he has done worse to himself, and the hospital has refused to treat him. Sentencing is tomorrow. If you're a praying man or woman, please do pray for my son. He has literally lost his mind over this now. God bless you in Jesus name."

Mark went to trial in 2014 for an assault that he did not do but was DENIED any defense at trial. The jury asked if Mark had mental illness or was taking any medications, and the judge REFUSED to give jurors any answer. I don't think Mark could afford an appeal. Mark is in solitary confinement now in Sherburne County Jail in Minnesota, charged for terrorizing a DOG he told to shut up barking, because Mark could not stand the loud sound with his head injuries.

In 2014, just out of coma after fighting off a jailhouse rapist, Mark had an epileptic seizure and frightened a nurse who fell and bumped her own head, but the system blamed Mark for assault for being sick! Yes, it is outrageous, I know. But there is no law against prison investors being judges and prosecutors, although that is a direct conflict of interest. The quest for prison profits has apparently taken over the United States of America and its legal system.

Mark's mother was told he has inserted things up his penis today and the hospital refuses treatment. *He needs to be taken to the V.A. Hospital.* A few days ago, he swallowed a spoon (in suicide watch, he should not have been given silverware), and before that he swallowed a bolt (where did he get a bolt?).
