The origins of Operation Bridgewater (#OpBridgewater) are directly linked to a report entitled: Anatomy of a Cover-up: The curious case of Alfred Wiggins Jr. v. Bridgewater State College and others.
The report is about the various aspects of the case that I thought were most important at the time, and that resonate with me still. These aspects include, but are not limited to, the means by which I was unlawfully and forcibly hospitalized at the behest of the Counseling Center on the campus of Bridgewater State on April 15, 2004.
I am writing and producing this report so I may demonstrate just how easy it was for campus authorities at the Counseling Center to create the appearance of an "emergency situation" through the use erroneous information about my career in the military, and the stereotypes that were created by the head of the Counseling Center then passed onto campus authorities. Both served to cast negative aspersions on my career in the United States Army.
In order to give this subject the best, most detailed treatment possible, I will use the Bridgewater State Counseling Center's records, as well as the medical records accrued during my stay at Brockton Hospital in 2004. These documents must suffice since both Bridgewater State and Brockton Hospital provide the bulk of written information about the case.
