I don't think Anyone is confused she broke a law in a foreign country man. Goes without saying, everyone has heard the story for months now. We get it.what "fair" is could be an entire philosophical thread all on its own. women getting beheaded in the middle east as punishment for getting raped is the law, it's also fucking moronic and I wouldn't call it "fair"I think many of our points is while its not fair by the standards we are used to, the fact that so many act like America can do anything beyond the negotiating they are doing is ridiculous. Russia is a sovereign country, we have no control over their laws, just or not. What people are saying is that if it wasnt for the fact that Griner is a famous American athlete, we would know nothing about the case. The other prisoner that we are trying to free has been in the jail longer and only know of him because Brittney made a mistake.
Basically when traveling abroad, be careful, your American rights dont follow you.
9 years for having a non traffickable amount of weed is tragic and inhumane and they likely are enforcing a decade long penalty to get an arms dealer free.
