    WNBA’S Brittney Griner Sentenced To 9 Years In Russian Prison

    And we are going to trade an entitled America hating athlete who made her own bed (even If the charge and sentence political BS theater) for a legit monster arms dealer named the “the merchant of death” ? While the US can and should work on her behalf to see that sentenced greatly reduced, and sent home, that's all we should do, and my empathy meter for her remains at zero:

    Khimki, RUSSIA – American basketball star Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to a drug charge in July.

    Griner, who was in Russia playing basketball for UMMC Ekaterinburg in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) off-season, was arrested in a Moscow airport in February after she was caught carrying marijuana vape cartridges into the country, FOX News reported.

    The center for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury has maintained that she made “an honest mistake” because she was packing in a hurry when she brought vape cartridges containing oils derived from cannabis that her attorneys have said she used to treat pain.

    Russian prosecutors have argued that the basketball player intentionally brought drugs into the country, FOX News reported.

    Couldn't have happened to a better man! I wonder if she still hates the national anthem here?

    Some goofball/pseudo celeb was whining that if these shemales made more in that crappy basketball league they wouldn't have to go to Russia for more income.... Ummm... I'm certain this crusty piece of shit brings home more money than I do.

    To paraphrase the Great Dave Chappelle... It's now become worse to hurt a gay person than it is to kill a "n-word". An America hating, gay black chick is high priority!

    I'm sick of people pandering to the entitled sports/celebrity types and trying to get them special treatment. She knowingly broke the laws in another country and should suffer the consequences.

    There are many other Americans who ACTUALLY LOVE THIS COUNTRY, that we should bring home long before her sorry anti American butt. Let her rot

    My feeling? Take a knee now, Bitch.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    I have to give a cynical snort laugh when stuff like this happens. These kind a people think that US law applies to or covers them in a foreign country. Literally heard some of our government officials say what happened to her was a violation of her constitutional rights. Their laws are their laws. You break 'em, suck it up. There will be a price to pay.

    So me too, I'm sick and tired of this multi-tiered judicial system here in the US that panders to the so called "elite". There are still folks locked up in isolation from the Jan 6th hoax that have had their for real constitutional rights violated. Yet, no body will give voice to this. So sad for the path this country has taken... saying that more and more these days.

    Even better when you remember that THC is illegal in the US too, and I think, every member of the UN.

    Or was this CBD or something?

    I heard they were trying to get a bonus deal with one of our "other Americans" or some such shit. We should have been doing this long before her. I hope they play the National Anthem on repeat in her cell.

    And they gave her 9 years too improve their bargaining chips. Smart on them. But Russia could maintain this negotiation for years, I doubt 9 but Russia is Russia. I think heard the conviction rate in court is about 90% for Ruskies, so If you goto court, BRACE FOR IMPACT!

    I wonder if she wishes she voted for the orange man about now? Be a whole nuther story.

    Russian courts, generally it's "the verdict is rendered by the arrest and the question is the sentencing."

    Remember, this IS the land of "show me the person and I'll show you the crime" we're talking about.
