Long Tom came first into the Cell & kicked me into my stomach. I fell to the ground. Then Chesser with assistance handcuffed me on legs & hands. Than they gaged me with the asistance of a broom handle, during the struggle of the gagging I lost 3 front teeth, than the whole Military Police asulted me with hand & feet, than left me bruised all over & nearly suffocating on account of the gag. After a long while, I managed to shift the gag by rubbing same against the wall. When I had my mouth free, I admit I kicked up a bit of a noise, to come to undo my handcuffs.
