You went to another country and broke their laws. Why should she get preferential treatment, just cause she plays wnba?? Nope, she's no different than anyone else who violates another country's laws and thinks she's exempt …. boo hoo for her.. and didn't she denounce America or something and thinks America should help her … nope .. keep her .. I could care less about about her, she broke their laws and yes its excessive, but they should've being told about the laws in Russia. πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Oh well, she knew damn well knew the rules!

Biden says the sentence is unacceptable and that she's being wrongfully detained. In the meantime our government is detaining as political prisoners, prosecuting, and sentencing to prison terms anybody who showed up at the January 6th protest even people who just showed up and didn't do anything. Not only did they not prosecute the cowardly cop that murdered the woman in Cold blood that was absolutely no direct threat to him whatsoever. Some of the members of the Democratic party are calling him a hero claiming he saved their lives. Biden his whole administration and the Democratic party are complete disgrace.

There are 40,000 people locked up in the US for marijuana possession. If you're going to exchange her for dangerous criminals then release those 40,000 people also.

BRITTNEY IS LUCKY.

AMERICANS AND OUR PENCHANT FOR DRUGS, AND OUR ABUSE AND USE OF THEM, IS NOT HONORED BEYOND OUR BORDERS.

WATCH THE FLIM "RED HEAT" STARRING ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER AND JIM BELUSHI.

IT WAS SET IN CHICAGO.

FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE FORGOT, THE CHINESE UNDER CHAIRMAN MAO SHOT MILLIONS OF DRUG ABUSERS AND SELLERS.

AND LET'S NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT THE ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.

IF BRITTANY HAD BEEN CAUGHT SMUGGLING DOPE INTO SAUDI ARABIA, SHE WOULD HAVE LOST HER HEAD.

LITERALLY.

AFTER FRIDAY JUMMAH PRAYERS.

AS FAR AS WHAT SHE WILL GO THRU, SHE IS A CONVICTED DRUG SMUGGLER.

AND LGBTQ.

NOT A GOOD RESUME TO HAVE WHEN YOU ENTER THE GULAGS OF RUSSIA.

ASK CAPTAIN DANKO πŸ™

Joseph Papsidero August 5, 2022 - 8:17 AM

This 6'9" pituitary case needs to rot in the Gulag Archipelago and perhaps then she will have some appreciation for her own country.
