Opinion: Brittney Griner Should Not Be in A Russian Jail

Brittney Griner

Brittney Griner just got sentenced to 9 years in Russian jail for having a couple of vape cartridges of cannabis oil… and fined 1 million rubles to boot. 😐 These are my thoughts concerning that.

Thought 1.

There is too much going on in the world for Russia (of all people) trying to hold someone for possibly having a couple of cartridges of cannabis.  If they paid as much attention to their athletes with steroids, they would be doing something productive with their time.

Thought 2.

America is weak.  Send a message directly to the Russian people and say, “Okay, bet… when you guys come to America, you can look forward to a nice search of your shit too.”  Granted that might make most of them happy because they actually want to stay here, make it clear that they can thank Putin for the complimentary thoroughness. You would think they’d want to improve their relations, but I guess they’ve got something to prove.

Thought 3. [From Left Field]

It seems black folk and people of color get the worst deals no matter where we are.  There are several Billion more people of color (and their allies) that stack up against the bad actors of the world and we need to start demanding better.

I’m not impressed with American leadership, nor am I impressed with other leaders around the world. We could be doing so much better.  So what I’m suggesting is… somehow; some way we need to have a “joining of the people”—the common citizenry that corrects the bumbling of nation leaders when they occur.  It only takes the effort of brave and moral people to make the difference.  Live by the motto of treating others fairly, as you would want to be treated and keep it moving.  The world is a shitty place right now. Only because good people have not stepped up to make a difference.  It’s time for that change to come.

✊🏾 Bring Brittney home.

Officers Arrested in Breonna Taylor Killing

AG Garland and the Department of Justice arrest officers in Breonna Taylor killing

The AP reports that the federal government has arrested four Louisville police officers involved in the  killing of Breonna Taylor.  …It is about time!!! As you may recalled Breonna Taylor was shot to death when officers entered her home, late at night, un-announced.

I’m not going to retell the story here, I just wanted to follow up on the story and mention the fact that the wheels of Justice are finally turning.  And I hope they keep turning to all the other cases that need to be looked at involving police shooting black folk.   I believe that there is a place and purpose for law enforcement, but just pulling out the heat and gunning down black folk is not the answer.  I agree with Attorney General Merrick Garland in his sentiment that “Breonna Taylor should be alive today”.  And honestly, so should many others.  See the link below to see the AP Story!

If Laws Applied to Everyone Like They Have Applied to Trump So Far, No One Would Be In Jail

Comments are closed.

There seems to be something very wrong with our legal system.  Trump, and people like him, didn’t just suddenly appear on the earth.  For a very long time now, laws have been applied very differently depending on who you are.

If we have laws, and everyone is expected to follow them; and generally, any ordinary person should be able to understand them; then you should not have to be– nor need acquire a lawyer to reason how those laws will be applied.

Therefore, it is plain and simple bullshit what is and has been going on since this nation has been formed.  If one person Read More
