Brittney Griner SENTENCED to 9 years in prison!

LINK

Wow!

quote:

A judge in Russia convicted American basketball star Brittney Griner of drug possession and smuggling Thursday and sentenced her to nine years in prison. for drug possession and smuggling.

Judge Anna Sotnikova said the time Griner has served in custody since her arrest in February would count toward the sentence.

Griner reacted to the sentence with little emotion. She listened to the verdict from the defendant's cage, a blank stare on her face.

Why not just leave it to the 10+ page on BG news to keep this in it? Why start another thread?

They definitely walk the walk. DAs across America could take some notes.

It is all relative in a sense.

Claire Danes got 33 years for smuggling in “Brokedown Palace” in a similar situation where she didn’t know how the drugs got in her suitcase.

Will all the American WNBA players make the personal sacrifice to stop playing in Russia and collecting Russian Rubles as a move of solidarity with BG?

Or is giving up that extra cash too much more of a sacrifice than wearing a special t-shirt during warmups?

I'm still curious, is there any comparison of how she was treated in terms of how long it took her case to come to fruition and her sentencing compared to other like situations?


Point being, I see a lot of talk about how this was all obviously her being used as a political prisoner by Russia, and don't get me wrong, I don't think for one second that's something Russia would not do.

But I'm definitely wondering if there is proof that she was treated very differently than anyone else who would have been found with the same drugs in an airport in Russia?

I'm sure she's really thankful for those 6 months of time served when she's looking down the barrel of 8.5 years in a Russian prison

I don’t get all of the joy here in her being sentenced to nearly a decade in prison for vape cartridges. Imagine if that was your sister. Because you disagree with someone’s politics you want them to rot in prison?

I completely disagree with her politically, but she’s still an American and this isn’t justice. It’s a farce. As an American this should piss you off.
