Signs Of Support For Manning In Binghamton

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

As the sentencing phase of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning’s court-martial got underway in Maryland, there were signs that some people in Binghamton support the soldier.

Manning was convicted by a military judge of violating the Espionage Act for releasing thousands of government documents to WikiLeaks. But the judge was acquitted of aiding the enemy, the most serious charge.

A large banner posted in front of a house on Riverside Drive on Binghamton’s West Side calls on people to support Manning. The sign proclaims it’s “not a crime to expose war crimes.”

Stickers expressing support for can be spotted around Binghamton, including one that’s been placed in a downtown phone booth.

No one at the Riverside Drive house could be contacted by a reporter. The house serves as a base for an organization known as the Better World Beloved Community.
