Brittney Griner has purpose to be upset. She’s about to face a really severe jail sentence in a very stark Russian penal colony. As you could know by now, the anthem-hating WNBA participant pled responsible to smuggling marijuana into Russia – a giant no-no. It’s onerous to imagine that Brittney didn’t know this was unlawful, I’ve by no means been to Russia, and even I knew that Marijuana was unlawful there. Brittney has been touring to Russia to play basketball for some time now — and if for some purpose she didn’t know their guidelines and legal guidelines, disgrace on her, that’s her personal fault. Brittney broke the legislation, and it doesn’t matter if she or her followers assume the legislation is “silly” or not. It’s nonetheless the LAW in that nation. You possibly can’t be such a privileged elite that you simply assume different individuals’s legal guidelines don’t apply to you, proper? So, now, she has to pay the value — they sentenced her to 9 years in a Russian penal colony.
However what’s a Russian penal colony?
The New York Occasions described the penal colony this fashion: Some prisoners are tortured, or overwhelmed by fellow inmates. Some must work 16-hour days. A number of are compelled to look at Russian propaganda on repeat. That is the world of the Russian penal colony, into which Brittney Griner is about to be inducted for a nine-year time period.
One Russian who’s in a Russian penal colony mentioned it’s like a focus camp. That sounds ghastly. I’m not a fan of the anti-American Griner, however I definitely don’t want any bodily hurt to her. However this simply goes to indicate why it’s so essential for those who’re touring overseas, to respect different nations and cultures. Brittney will get to behave like a self-entitled activist brat within the US, and is hailed a hero by some, however that doesn’t imply different nations will deal with her infantile and egocentric shenanigans the identical means.
We’re listening to that the information of the cruel sentence was so distressing to Brittney, that she will be able to hardly converse.
Day by day Mail reported that Brittney Griner’s lawyer Maria Blagovolina has mentioned her shopper is ‘very upset’ and might ‘hardly discuss’ following Thursday’s sentence by which she was given 9 years in a penal colony. ‘She could be very upset, very careworn,’ Blagovolina mentioned to reporters. ‘She will be able to hardly discuss, truthfully. So it’s a tough time for her.’ ‘After we noticed Brittney, I believe it was Tuesday, we informed her, ‘see you on Thursday’. And he or she mentioned, ‘see you on doomsday’ so it seems to be like she was proper,’ Blagovolina mentioned.
Griner’s protection attorneys are planning to attraction the decision and she or he now had 10 days by which to take action, with a listening to anticipated subsequent week. Out of the 692 prisons in Russia, 684 are penal colonies that are described as a ‘settlement established for punishing criminals by compelled labor and isolation from society.’
Alexei Navalny, a Russian opposition chief, lawyer, and anti-corruption activist is at present serving his sentence in a penal colony which he has described as a ‘pleasant focus camp,’ with cameras ‘in all places.’
On Thursday evening, the top coach of Griner’s WNBA workforce mentioned the nine-year sentence handed out to its star participant was devastating — although it was no shock.
Joe Biden is vowing to “struggle” to free Griner, who truly dedicated against the law and broke the legislation, and plead responsible. In the meantime, there are individuals with misdemeanor trespassing expenses rotting away in DC jails. Joe Biden has handled the January sixth protesters like “Russian political prisoners,” and now, he needs to “struggle” for one in every of his lawless supporters?
Sorry, however I imagine Brittney did the crime and now she should do her time, and we’ve got no companies “demanding” Russia launch her, or attempting to “swap” prisoners for her. Once more, she dedicated against the law. She’s not a sufferer, although she’s appearing like one. That’s all she does, is act like a sufferer.
