Visitor to Lt. Col. Lakin Turned Away


by Bob Pinkstaff

Ft. Leavenworth houses federal civilian prisoners and military prisoners and was built in the early 1900s

(Dec. 27, 2010) — Yesterday (Sunday), I drove to Ft. Leavenworth with the intention of visiting with Lt. Colonel Lakin at the “U.S. Disciplinary Barracks.”  There are two disciplinary barracks on the base, both located approx two miles inside the main gate, with approximately one mile separation between the two. Weekend visiting hours are 0800 to 1100 & 1300 to 1600.

The explanation I got from a soldier stationed there was that the first barracks is for prisoners with five or more years’ time to do. The second barracks (one mile away) is for prisoners with less than five years time to do. This soldier was good enough to lead me to the detention barracks and area; I’m not sure I could’ve found my way by verbal directions from the main gate.

Lt. Colonel Lakin is an inmate in the second barracks (less than five years’ time to do). I showed my military ID card to the MP at the desk and told him I was there to visit with Lt. Colonel Terrence Lakin. I was asked, “who I was there to see” (two different times), and each time I repeated “Lt. Colonel Lakin.” The MP called someone and told them that I was there to visit with “Terrence”; no last name, just “Terrance.” I was asked if I was a family member. I said no, that I was a “Patriot” and that he doesn’t know me personally. By this time I was beginning to get really upset with their attitude and their addressing of patriot and hero Lt. Colonel Lakin as “Terrence”!

About 15 minutes later a MSgt MP came to the desk asking again, “who I was there to see.” Once again I repeated “Lt. Colonel Lakin,” always using his rank in all responses/conversation with them. The conversation with the unconcerned MSgt MP was …

MSgt MP: You can’t see him (no reason).

Me: Why not?

MSgt MP: He’s still being processed.

Me: I’ve driven over 450 miles (R/T) and would like to visit with him.

MSgt MP: Same answer, no; he’s still being processed.

Me: There are thousands of very concerned American citizens interested in patriot Lt. Colonel Lakin’s welfare, me included!

MSgt MP: He’s still being processed and you must be on an the approved “visitors’ list” by “Terrence.”

Me: How do I get on his approved “visitors’ list”?

MSGT MP: He has to add your name.

Me: Would you tell him I was here to visit and would like to have him add my name to the list?

MSgt MP: No!

Me: I made a few choice comments regarding the traitorous USURPER obama being free to roam while patriot and hero Lt. Colonel Lakin is locked up! I then left the building.


How long has Lt. Colonel Lakin been incarcerated at Ft. Leavenworth (still processing)?

Why so long to process?

Has/is Maj. General Karl Horst considering comments/facts before issuing a final ruling on Lt. Colonel Lakin?

On my way back to the main gate, just past the first detention barracks, I was stopped for questioning by security. The MSgt MP called security after I left, telling them that he, MSgt MP, told me to leave and I wouldn’t do it. I made it very clear why I was on the base and that the MSgt MP never did ask me to leave. I was also able to express our concerns regarding patriot and hero Lt. Colonel Lakin’s imprisonment while the traitorous USURPER obama roams free etc. He listened to my short soap box speech and sent me on my way back to Wichita, KS.

That’s how the visit with Lt Colonel Lakin turned out, NO VISIT. It’s my opinion that Lt Colonel Lakin’s “visitor list” will be very short and that the detention barracks is treating him as an obama political prisoner.

Has Obama told the staff at Ft. Leavenworth to deny visitors to Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin? If so, why? Is that a federal civil rights violation?

    Here in Texas it takes 2-3 weeks for a prisoner to be processed at TDCJ. During that time the inmate is not allowed visitors or phone calls.

    One last thing: Pili Lakin is in contact with her husband.

    Sharon, have you contacted her to ask her opinion of Mr Pinkstaff’s behavior? Does she feel it was helpful? Would she encourage others to do the same?

    I guarantee you, if LTC Lakin’s counsel or loved ones were denied visitation, we would be hearing about it in no uncertain terms.

    I have to confirm what some other posters have said. You do not just show up at a jail – military or otherwise – and name a prisoner, and expect to have that prisoner trotted out to you. That’s not how it works. If LTC Lakin wants to see you, he’ll add you to his visitor list.

    Has his lawyer been denied visitation? Has his family?
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Those would be good questions to which to obtain answers. Perhaps they could be directed to the Safeguard Our Constitution website with a note that they are intended for family members to answer. What troubles me is that the MSgt said that Lakin “was still being processed” after ten days.

    Why would any president REFUSE to show a $10 dollar birth certificate to an officer of the military who had served for 17 years his life for country?

    At this point, it doesn’t even matter if the usurper had a birth certificate, knowing he betrayed NOT only our own but the country as well.

    U.S. Army Doctor Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin has every RIGHT to insure his sworn oath to the U.S. Constitution, so that NO man is ABOVE the law!


    We Americans have grown soft thinking that the government will take care of us, not realizing all along that WE are the government and its our responsibility to take care of ourselves.

    If your government is not protecting you, travel the paths of politics and throw them out and replace them with people who do understand the meanings between right and wrong.

    I’m a HUGE fan and supporter of Lt. Col. Lakin, but you seriously drove almost 500 miles without first contacting his legal counsel and ensuring you would be able to visit him??

    I don’t know a whole lot about the jail system, particularly military jails, but I wouldn’t even try to visit someone in the county jail without first ensuring I was on the list of visitors. Isn’t that something covered on every cop/criminal/lawyer show?

    The illigitimate soetoro shows his stripes by praising the torture and brutal killing of captured animals by m. vick. We can only expect the tyrant to treat Lt. Col. Terry Lakin in the same manner. Therefore we must demand of our elected representitives that the farce not be allowed to continue. We all have a congressman and two senators. I’m getting after mine.

    Here is the thing. When it comes to visiting an inmate, most jails require that the inmate make a list of prior approved visitors. Most people will have no way of knowing this in advance, but it is actually the way things are usually done, even in civilian jails.
    And there is usually a limit, for example, an inmate may have five or prehaps eight visitors on the list. They are given a form to fill out after being processed. They can only make changes to the list occasionally. Rarely ever last minute.
    So, if a friend decides to visit and is not on that list, they will almost always be turned away-at least at the more strict institutions. Sometimes the inmate can leave a “blank” on the form, which can be filled in just before a visit if the institution allows for this.
    First timers don’t usually know how to work this, so LTC Lakin may not know.
    It is not a good idea to travel a long distance to visit without having assurance directly from the authority in charge that you will be allowed a visit.
    I learned all that the hard way years ago.

    I am absolutely livid that these Communist/Marxist Traitor thugs in our own military are doing this to Lt.Col. Lakin. This brave, courageous hero standing up for America, while Obama is running loose in our White House illegally.

    Good job Bob. I would suggest to anyone going to see Lt.Col. Lakin to make sure you take 2 or 3 witnesses with you and live feed cell phone video. There are ways to get video live feed in whether these thugs like it or not.

    “We The People” are not going to put up with this. Please everyone send this viral.

    Go in groups to see Lakin. I plan to contact my Congressman and Senators and perch on their doorstep until they free Lakin.

    Lt. Col. Lakin should be the President of the U.S. and Obama should be in Leavenworth!

    Good for you Bob Pinkstaff !!
    I am glad you gave them attitude back when they presented with it.
    I am also sure the MSgt MP was overjoyed to report to his superior
    his handling of the encounter. Sounds to me like he needed or really
    wanted to please those above him. Obviously he has been briefed
    (indoctrinated) as to how some in the upper rank(s) view us terrorists
    and our heroes.
    Good on ya, Bob

    You are forgetting that Lt. Lakin DID NOT GET A FAIR TRIAL TO BEGIN WITH!

    This is just more proof we cannot expect support from our armed forces. They may
    even be unleashed against American Citizens.

    Just as it is referenced in “The Declaration Of Independence,” when the king’s soldiers
    had no consideration for their “Consanguinity.”

    Usually, when someone is imprisoned, the prisoner’s legal representative may visit or communicate with their client during any and all normal visiting times just by showing up or calling in. It is a prisoner’s right that their legal representative has privileged access.

    To prevent being turned away by uncooperative or jailers using the letter of the law to abuse its spirit, it is probably best for a first-time visitor to prearrange and clear their visit through the prisoner’s legal representative. The legal representative would have the right to demand that they be informed by the jailers of any procedural requirements that must be met to allow the visit to take place. And they would have the right to see the prisoner in order to have any required forms filled out and signed.

    Correction ??? Ole Ben may have been quoting De Maistre; Ben was once Ambassador to France.

    “Every nation has the government it deserves.”
    Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821)
    French diplomat and philosopher
    Lettres et Opuscules Inedits (1851)

    Sentiment still stands. Obama is not a fool; merely a bold usurper and traitor. We the People are the fools; we elected him.

    Mr. Pinkstaff,
    God bless you for your patriotism. History will record how we have been betrayed.

    ” Terrence! ” Sigh. I’ll just bet, these ” jailers ” are having a great time shuttling Lt. Col. Lakin about, keeping him bereft of visitation. I believe this hero will be vindicated sometime and I sure hope that it is soon!
