CET Free the Pussy Riot Three (101* d) RE: Free the Pussy Riot Three 19 Aug 12


"May be jailed for music and videos? What a sick bunch a fucks! Protest in art form is illegal "somewhere"? Really????? In this world? TODAY???"

Well, not exactly. They gave the government a good excuse by committing a genuine offense, something they could expect to be charged for in any Western democracy. It wasn't just singing a protest song on a video. I don't have much sympathy for them being arrested.

HOWEVER, the hand of Putin's government in all of this is just too evident. Five months without bail! In a Russian prison! On top of that, a two year prison sentence. Even with two for one credit for pre-trial incarceration, they will be doing about 14 months. I have no idea if Russian law has any kind of early release provisions. That's obscene.
