Not that I agree with the attempt to confine Manning in a solitary cell, this is not "punishment" for attempting suicide, but a regular process for prisoners that attempt suicide, although not for the duration of their sentence. Also, it would appear that the reason behind this is Manning's problem being a trans-gendered person in a Male prison, which apparently led to her attempt. I don't know why wouldn't the authorities consider moving her to a female prison, but at the moment this is the only other solution available.

So, again, not to show support, but a biased presentation of the story does play into the other-side's hands.
