We need to keep an eye on Brittney when she gets back to the US. She might start slinging drugs. 😎

Why are other US citizens that are in Russian prisons not in the news or being negotiated for their release by the White House? Does she have special privileges?

Islam is a religion that calls for the worship of God alone, who has no partner, and that Muhammad is the last of the messengers. The Qur’an is the last book of God. It is one copy that has not been distorted. Scientists prove scientifically things that were discovered only in recent years, such as the stages of the formation of the fetus and many other facts that God has mentioned in the Qur’an to prove the authenticity of the Qur’an. That is, from God, and to establish an argument against the people and upon those who heard of this, God is the one who created you and He is the one who will send you after the grave to the reckoning. Have you not wondered one day who holds the heavens and the earth to pass away, and who provides for you and who created you from dust, and where you are when you sleep and this is an example of the grave And sleeping after it is an example of the resurrection of the resurrection

If the press wants to do something useful for a change, please get us a list of all Americans imprisoned in foreign countries on drug possession charges.

If the average Joe blow got caught the American government wouldn't do shit,I hope she does every second of that 9 years.

If this verdict is so unreasonable does that mean we should take a look back at the Biden mandatory minimum laws that went in place in the 80s where people are still doing 20 years for a seed or stem in their ashtray why does he she get special privilege and how is Russia so bad when we've done worse to us people

She has not killed anyone

Kevin August 5, 2022 - 8:35 PM

Lol she broke the law within Russia. It’s their law. Also, I don’t understand why is there lawyers in Russia if the conviction rate is 99%.

SuperVodkaChick August 5, 2022 - 8:35 PM

Hopefully, she can get released by Xmas. Commenters need to have more humanity here. Have you ever made a mistake?

Just a Timelord Having Fun :) August 5, 2022 - 8:41 PM

I wouldn't have apologized to any Russian authority. They are nothing but liars, manipulators and deceivers. Just a puppet court.
