Section 1.12, also known as the "incapacity clause," was a part of the Official CTU Operations Manual that stated that it was acceptable to remove a high-ranking official from their position if they are deemed mentally unfit for duty.
Convinced by Audrey Raines that Lynn McGill was impeding CTU's investigation of the day's terrorist threat, Curtis Manning had Security escort McGill to holding. This action was based on the firing of CTU techie Carrie Bendis, the imprisoning of Bill Buchanan, and the attempted imprisoning of Chloe O'Brian, Edgar Stiles, and Curtis Manning. Manning then called Division Command to inform them of his actions and a full review of McGill's conduct was initiated.
Identifying an Unstable Superior
The extract from the Official Manual states the following.
|“||CTU's agency charter permits the removal of the highest ranking official at CTU if he or she is deemed mentally unfit for duty. In this case, the incapacity clause of Section 1.12 must be invoked by the next-to-highest-ranking officer. The person in question may be detained and removed from the floor, but this action must be reviewed as soon as possible by District personnel. To be found just, the action must meet the following requirements or be supported by the following evidence:
Employees are reminded that any superior who is relieved of duty under section 1.12 should still be treated with courtesy, even while being detailed. District draws a sharp distinction between superiors removed under the incapacity clause and those removed under suspicion of being a mole or traitor. Do not confuse the two.
