Brittney Griner Detention Extended in Moscow


Earlier this month the Biden Administration reclassified WNBA player Brittney Griner as 'wrongfully detained' in Russia after she was arrested for allegedly smuggling vape pens and cannabis oil into the country [click here if you missed that]. 

Brittney's detainment has been extended for another month...

From ESPN 
The lawyer for WNBA star Brittney Griner said Friday her pretrial detention in Russia has been extended by one month.
Griner's lawyer, Alexander Boikov, told The Associated Press he believed the relatively short extension of the detention indicated the case would come to trial soon.
Griner, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, was detained at the Moscow airport after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

That's why I don't try to rock with visiting places like Dubai, Singapore, China, N Korea, and Russia. Sneeze too loud in those oppressive countries and they'll fuck up your whole life.

The powers that be probably didn't forget how she talked cash money shit about the flag, not standing, etc...I get it...that flag is shitty...yet, this same country is now in a position or responsible for trying to bring your ass home with all that tough talk...all I'm saying is this is one of many instances where maybe we should consider what we put into the atmosphere...nevertheless, let's bring this sister home...the lesson and point has been made...

Unfortunately, she's being used as a political pawn. I think they would've let her go in the past, but with so much going on they will keep her for leverage. The more they are sanctioned, the longer they will keep her. When you go abroad you have to be mindful about current national relationships as well as laws. One of the worst countries to visit is Italy but most people don't know that. They have a horrible court system and they have a lot of YT refugees from poor countries who hate Blacks. Stay out of those places and visit the islands.
