Arizona Shooter held in same conditions as Bradley Manning

"According to an official familiar with the prison, Mr. Loughner, who federal records say is registered as inmate No. 15213-196, is being held in “segregation” for his own protection. Prisoners in segregation are closely monitored, the official said, and generally spend 23 hours of the day alone in their cells and have an hour or so a day for exercise and showering."

Is it right that the accused Wikileaks leaker be held in the same conditions as this man who killed and seriously wounded all those people? He after all really does have blood on his hands. I'm not suggesting he be punished further before trial. I'm suggested that the conditions Manning is held in are outrageously draconian for the crime he's accused of.
