Pussy Riot Guilty

In Putin Land, there is only one view of life and guess who is the author of that interpretation as to what is  OK and what violates the right of the state to decide what is OK? The Pussy Riot band was convicted of “hooliganism.” Their crime was to enter a church and sing a song which urged the Virgin Mary to  rid Russia of President Vladmir Putin. In most civilized societies that would be appropriate behavior, but in Putin Land that violates all that is sacred.

Judge Marina Syrova declaimed the song reflected “religious hatred” and “showed disrespect for society.” Nadezhdo Tolokonnikova, responded by  commenting, “our imprisonment is a clear and distinct sign that the whole country’s freedeom is being taken away.”

Such is life in Putin Land.
