Well, That Makes a Lot of Sense

How do you get someone who is suicidal to change her ways? Wait, I know. How about 14-days in solitary confinement? Yeah, sure, a little mental torture should fix everything right up.

Military officials have sentenced Manning to 14 days in The Hole for her July suicide attempt. Manning was convicted on 3 counts of misconduct including interfering with the serenity of the glasshouse where she's serving her 35-year sentence.

During the hearing, which Manning said took four hours, she was not allowed access to an attorney or advocate. No publicly available record or transcript of the hearing exists apart from Manning’s own description.

It seems in Canada, when it comes to mental illness and rape, many women than not get the dirty end of the stick.

I thought the same thing Mound when I heard military officials had sentenced Manning to 14 days of solitary confinement for her suicide attempt. They are actually punishing her. I think they just want Manning to go away.

It would not bother them if Manning in one of her suicide attempts succeeded. In fact they may secretly be wishing for that.
