This is correct. Until the moment she was arrested she thought she was a privileged person in Russia and above the law, certainly as it pertains to carrying a small amount of drugs for personal use. She was a VIP there and treated better than most everybody. She was way more privileged than the average Russian citizen. Her foolishness was in not realizing none of the privilege was real and that at any moment she could be hassled or incarcerated for no good reason, again, like any Russian. She did not heed the warning signs and alter her behavior to fit the change in geopolitics. Yes, that’s on her, but it’s somewhat understandable when probably for years nobody cared one bit in Russia if she had a hash pen and nobody would dare stop such a big time athlete, friend to the oligarchs. This is not a testament to Russian rule of law, but the opposite. It just shows there are no rules at all.
oh hey, look who showed up.
hey when she was 1st arrested talk was her sentence could be 10 years. She got 9 so she got off easy.
Hey Brit see you in 2031
lol. It's like roll call in here.
I did not write that, It is somebody who wants to be like me
I guess she was a visionary for taking a knee. I’m embarrassed that the US is allowing this to happen.
This is the same country that bombs innocent civilians in Ukraine and poisons political rivals in Britain.
Do you honestly believe Griner had drugs on her?
Russia ain't tellin the truth here, bro.
Should've used the keester. Or the vadge if the keester were full.
I agree with the first part but… she admitted that the pot was hers
I see ruSSian trolls found this thread.
If she doesn't admit guilt, they drag out her trial, make a show of it, and she's in jail for 20 years.
Put in your 9 years. There are enough lefties interested that with a book deal and movie rights you'll be set when you get out.
What is her trade equivalent? Does russia have any anti Russian asylum seekers in the US that we could offer up? Let russia have them back? Maybe a nuclear scientist who defected in the 80s? The gun runner dude isn't even that tall
East or West ...
The Russians have ordered a DNA test!
Is Griner a male?
Looks and acts like a dude. Sits a car shirtless, no attempt to cover up.
I think Brittney Griner is like Caster Semenya A DSD and/or Hermaphrodite in having both male and female characteristics, They were born with Vagina's and if they were not Lesbian they could get pregnant and have children, but their voice sounds like a male and they have other features that give them an advantage in Sports including much higher levels of Testosterone.
I mean she can get pregnant by a man (Not talking about adoption) I mean her own if a man got her pregnant. The fact they have a Vagina and can get pregnant if they have sex with a Man to me makes her a Woman, in spite of her Male Voice, high testosterone levels an Physical features that give them an advantage in sports (if she was not Lesbian, their voice would put them at a disadvantage in meeting Men as she would face voice discrimination)
lucky it wasn't Singapore.
They'd have hanged her
