WNBA star Britney Griner has been sentenced in a Russian court to 9 years in prison for drug possession.
Honestly, I don't follow basketball. I could not tell you who the leading NBA players are. I just don't care. Likewise, I had never heard of Britney Griner until recently. What I have learned about her is not flattering. She is big on the social justice circuit, didn't want to play in an arena where the American flag was present.
I heard that when se was arrested in Russia, she complained that no one read her her tights. Ha! Had she paid attention in high school civics, she might have earned that she had it good in the US.
I hope that the State Department is able to get her out. I don't want to see any US citizen in a Russian jail.
