QUANTICO, Va. -- In the hills of Northern Virginia, a brick building with the slanted roof of a suburban rancher rises from Civil War battlefields. It may be the world's most well-behaved prison.Marines run it, so there is little dirt or laughter. Prisoners file down dustless hallways in formation, saluting their keepers as they pass. Uzbek and Czech jailers visit for tips. And, recently, Aberdeen drill sergeants and Naval Academy midshipmen have been among its most celebrated inmates.The Northeastern Regional Brig, tucked in a corner of this historic Marine post among elm and maple stands, has all the antiseptic charm of a psychiatric ward.

The former commander of the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Va., told a military court on Tuesday that accused WikiLeaker Bradley Manning was held in highly restrictive "prevention-of-injury" custody even though psychiatrists recommended the conditions be eased. Retired Marine Col. Daniel J. Choike told the court at Fort Meade that he agreed with the staff of the brig at Quantico that Manning should be kept on prevention-of-injury status based on his history, the seriousness of the charges against him and what he called his "erratic behavior.

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is due back at Fort Meade this week, where lawyers for the alleged WikiLeaker plan to argue that he was punished at a military brig before his case had been heard — grounds, they say, to dismiss all charges against him. By the time he arrived at the Marine Corps brig at Quantico, Va., Manning was world famous. The former intelligence analyst, who lived in Maryland before enlisting in the Army, had been accused of giving hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

A neighborhood fight over pocket money sparked the shooting Monday night that left four adults and five teen-agers wounded in a few chaotic seconds at a Northwest Baltimore LTC street corner, police said yesterday.Some residents continued to blame drugs, but investigators said they were focusing on a teen-ager who stole "a few dollars" from a child, causing a rift between two groups that escalated from a fist-fight to a multiple shooting, which occurred about 9:30 p.m. at Quantico Avenue and Pall Mall Road.

The blood washed off with the spray of a hose and ran pink down the gutter of Quantico Avenue.Gary Gamble stood back and looked at the fender of his father's silver Buick, where the crimson stain had been. Then, he bent down and started scrubbing again. Then, he sprayed again. Then he scrubbed some more."He would have hated to see his car looking this way," Gamble said, as a circle of sweat spread across the back of his T-shirt. "All that blood, his blood. Oh, my God. He's really gone."A day after the Rev. Junior Lee Gamble, 73, was gunned down outside his home in one of the few secure enclaves of Northwest Baltimore, family, friends and neighbors wandered from door to door yesterday in a trance of grief.

At the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Va., women are making history.For the first time in the 216-year history of the corps, females are training alongside their male counterparts in the Officer Basic Course, a grueling 6-month period when these new second lieutenants become acquainted with virtually every job a marine must carry out.Prior to the August start of the current OBC class, women Marine officers trained in segregated platoons. They were also relegated to learning limited "defensive" field tactics.
