Television interview with RSP dissenter Harvey Bryant

Retired Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney Harvey Bryant, one of the two Response Systems Panel dissenters, has explained the reasons for his dissenting vote in this televised interview with WTKR:
“The primary goal is to increase confidence and put it in the hands of people trained in law to make decisions. We don’t let commanders decide who is having an operation, doctors in the military decide that,” said Bryant.
Bryant says he didn’t always feel that way–but changed his views after several months of official hearings and testimony from more than 650 people, many of them military officers.
“I wasn’t satisfied with their answers. I suddenly realized, ‘this is not good, we are not going to have confidence in the system,’” said Bryant.
