Not looking good for Brittney Griner

LINK

quote:

But before the trial even begins, U.S. experts and officials say Griner will be the subject of a show trial, and a guilty verdict is almost a certainty.


quote:

Griner, like most defendants, is expected to spend the trial in a steel-barred cage.


Kneeling will not be allowed in the bird cage.

quote:

99% of Russian criminal cases end in a conviction, and that's without the political factors in her case. "It's a fantasy for average Russians. It's a double fantasy for someone in this sort of political case," Pomeranz says.


quote:

Traditionally, the best defense is to admit your guilt and hope you get a lesser sentence," Pomeranz says. "There's not a lot of examples of people raising strong defenses and getting acquitted." In fact, he says, Russian judges tend to be forced out of office if they acquit too many defendants.

I have sympathy for her being a political prisoner, but she also knowingly broke the law in fricking Russia during a heightened time of animosity. I can't imagine being that stupid or needing to smoke a little weed that damn bad.

What a fricked country to lock someone up for so long for a non violent crime. All over a goddamn vape. Get fricked Russia.

This is indeed fricked up. But thankfully for her she wasn’t arrested in white supremacist USA.

I agree she acted stupidly. She probably believed believe that foreign pro athletes were not subject to the same set of laws as the average Russian, which is the case in many places. Also a very unfortunate time to be acting dumb as an American in Russia. Nobody deserves to be held hostage and used as a bargaining chip like she has though. It's fricked up and doesn't seem like she'll be getting any outside help.

I hate pretty much everything she stands for, but the politics of this is terrible and unfair. Some Russian baw is about to get a 100 year sentence for jaywalking soon in retaliation

No matter what you think of her politics, and even the fact she brought weed into a country like Russia....



This is ridiculous. Id love for a Russia to with a straight face try to honestly tell me why they think she or anyone deserves that long behind bars. frick Russia in general, hope all their Judges die. Thats not being a judge, That is just sentencing

also some of the comments here are just cruel. So she votes different than you, and has different views on the state of our country (wrong views imo), some of yall seem happy about the sentence and thats fricked

Russia is far from the only country that does this. Word of advice, learn the laws of the country you are visiting so you avoid shite like this. She has nobody to blame but herself

I don't even personally like the girl, but she is getting absolutely fricked over this whole ordeal. She's about to spend 10 years in prison in a foreign country over something that amounts to what should be a damn misdemeanor.

I'm not a MAGA guy, but now would be a great time for Trump to be in office.

Even Sweden has a zero tolerance drug policy that is more harsh than the United States

Exactly. People act like only Russia, China and North Korea do this. Sweden, Finland and a few other Western European nations don’t frick around with this.

I mean, she is clearly being used as a political prisoner right now. It isn't about her bringing a vape over the border.

The Swedes aren't going to throw me in jail for 10 years if I bring a vape through immigration.
