Yep

Our government and authorities here will tell everyone ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law and they hold you accountable

So I don't understand why we here in the states are thinking it should be different anywhere else
ignorance of the law excuses no one though rn if you have the money, position, connection and power you are excuse.

Now this is funny....


Las Vegas Aces head coach Becky Hammond called on the Russian government to "do the right thing." She asked for "leniency" and "grace" in hopes that Griner can be brought back to the United States.


Damn Becky you're a genius

If only the Ukraine had thought of this all this time and simply asked Russia to do the right thing and show leniency

🤦‍♂️

Brittney pleaded guilty, so not sure what is the right thing she's asking here. Only in America where a person who breaks the law in a foreign country gets worshipped.

She didn't "plead guilty"

This is a failure of the US media to report accurate information.

She admitted she had prescription cannibas on her person and intended to use it in the jurisdiction of Russia as it was for pain relief.

In Russia, a confession- even if you're explaining innocence, is considered a guilty plea.

The US media should have reported that much better.

What is your opinion on Britney Griner's situation in Russia?

Everyone initially believes Russia is holding Griner per political agendas

However, it has been pointed out clearly that Russia takes a strong stance on marijuana and cannabis, and that the charge on Griner is also consistent with the United States' own federal laws on marijuana that can lead to conviction in the states too

So she did break a law in a country that takes it very seriously

And the problem is if we give in too easily and give up too much to get her released, that sets a bad precedent for the future and could lead to more situations like this

I'm sorry but imo she might just have to stay

I agree.

That's true, and there's something seriously wrong with that 🙈
