Pussy Riot In Sochi Trouble

It was a pleasant day in Sochi and athletes were vying against one another for this medal or that medal. Two young women were strolling down the street when suddenly the police surrounded them charging they had stolen a purse from a woman. Nadezha Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are very familiar with the antics of Russian police since they are part of Pussy Riot and just were released from a two year term for insulting Christianity by singing in a church. As they told the media, “we were simply walking around Sochi when they grabbed us.” After being taken to the police station and questioned for hours they were released.

The real crime is why there is an Olympics in a nation that places in prison those who speak out freely. Several environment activists at this moment are in prison for speaking about environment issues in Sochi. Which is more important-respecting the principles of democracy or getting a gold medal?

The Olympic Committee sold their souls for money. Who the hell cares about medals at a time of political oppression??
