Prison Disciplinary Board Decides to Punish Chelsea Manning with Solitary Confinement for Charges Related to Suicide Attempt

LEAVENWORTH, Kansas - A prison disciplinary board has decided to punish imprisoned transparency advocate Chelsea Manning with 14 days of solitary confinement (with 7 days suspended) for charges directly related to her suicide attempt in July, and possession of an unmarked book in her cell. The decision is the latest example of the U.S. government’s campaign of harassment and mistreatment of Chelsea, who has been incarcerated in all male military facilities for 6 years.

I guess if I'm going to scold Common Dreams for not mentioning that Jill Stein is committed to pardoning Chelsea Manning, Fight for the Future deserves to be scolded too.

If you are going to mention Michael Stipe (who is awesome), would it hurt to also mention Jill Stein? She would not only pardon Chelsea Manning, but offer her a job in her administration. I think that deserves to be mentioned.
