She shows disrespect to our nation by kneeling and sometimes not even coming out of the locker room for the Anthem.  Does bode well with most Americans.  Now she’s begging for help because of her stupid mistake so she can fend for herself.

Maybe BLM and/or Harris can bail her out.

I think a planeload of BLM activists would be just the thing to draw attention to her plight - just think of the scene they'd make when their charter flight touched down in Moscow.

They could fly out of Denver, only coincidentally a state where recreational marijuana is legal and readily available.

This wasn't her first trip to Russia. She wasn't happy with earning more in the WNBA than 98% of black Americans can ever hope to earn, she was moonlighting during the WNBA off season playing for a team in Russia and being paid millions of dollars for doing so. She knew the cannabis was in her luggage and she knew it was illegal, but she assumed her star status made her immune to the laws.

I have zero sympathy.

First time I've seen her arms with all tha tats. What's the saying? "You can take the gangsta out of the 'hood, but you can't take the 'hood out of the gangsta."

Well the WNBA, like the NFL, is akin to slavery, don't you know.

"If she was, with the same charges, labeled a veteran instead of a lesbian sportsball person then a lot of people would be wanting to get her home."

Of course we'd want a veteran back.

As long as that veteran honorably served his/her country.

What has this individual really done?

Trashed her country while being paid millions of dollars?

*expletive deleted*ck her. She can stay in Russia and pay for her crimes, to which she has confessed.

I think what French was suggesting was that we'd want the vet back if they did the same thing she did. Perhaps "we" as a country would, but I wouldn't. I don't care if they were a door kicker in Fallujah, if they come back and start talking about what a crappy country we have* and start doing drugs, and are stupid enough to take drugs to a foreign country, they don't need any special consideration. Just like the vets who tell me that if I want an AR, I should join the military, otherwise I don't get a gun. A jackass is a jackass.

A post dated doctor's note, maybe?
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Exactly. If it were real, they would have been waving that note on Day 1 to the ruskies and the US Consulate. My guess is, going with the overall theme of the thread, is that she and her handlers figured she'd be breezing through on her celebrity, race, gender, and all the other stuff that works for her in the US, so never even thought about coming up with a defense.

Apparently they are working on a deal for her release.

She had diplomatic celebrity immunity.

I'm failing to comprehend how Griner is being "wrongfully" detained. She has admitted that she did what she was arrested for doing. How is her detention in any way "wrongful"?

Evidently now Biden wants to trade Nicholas Cage for Griner and some marine the Russians arrested on espionage charges 5 years ago.
