"The lawyer for WNBA star Brittney Griner said Friday her pre-trial detention in Russia has been extended by one month.

Alexander Boykov told The Associated Press he believed the relatively short extension of the detention indicated the case would come to trial soon. She has been in detention for nearly three months.

She appeared for the brief hearing handcuffed, her dreadlocks covered in a red hoodie and her face held low."

WNBA star Brittney Griner’s detention in Russia extended 1 month

She committed the cardinal sin when traveling/living abroad, but I still feel bad for her.

How do you know she actually had anything and the russians just didn't plant it or make it up?
Yeah, you're right. She's a Baptist, after all, and she doesn't do drugs or alcohol or anything like that. She did go to Baylor, you know.
 
I don't care whether she went to BU or not....this sucks. She is being used by that corrupt government. I hope they find a way to get her out of that hell-hole soon.
Yeah, I'm by no means a fan of BG, but this isn't something that really falls under Baylortears. This is an unacceptable situation with a terrible government seeking revenge and not really funny at all.

Or, perhaps she knowingly violated the laws of a sovereign nation that does not tolerate lawbreakers? Perhaps she will get a fair trial and have to live with the decision of the court?

Putin is a piece of garbage. This was an opportunity to exploit and embarrass the US by arresting her and making it a public spectacle. They have an agenda. Period.

assuming she makes it home safely and of course I pray she does, I cannot wait to hear the interviews. She is going to make so much money on interviews and whatnot.


I honestly think it is a strong possibility that it was planted on her. Russia is the opposite of progressive and as mentioned previously, they can use her as a bargaining chip. Plus, plausible that she'd have it on her, so they can deny having done anything.

Not necessarily. I still remember the commercials from the 1970s warning people of drug laws/penalties in foreign countries:

"When you're busted for drugs over there, you're in for the hassle of your life."

Hey, I found the old commercial!

I never liked or disliked BG prior to her arrest.

Whether the small amount of a drug was in her vape materials or not is irrelevant.

Clearly now a highly visible chess piece on the world political stage. Not something she signed up for as an American. But this is a predictable outcome when traveling abroad Into a hotbed of international conflict.

Get out and come home. Russia is off my travel list for good.

I was never a fan of hers, but I wish her safety and freedom and hope she gets home soon. Even if she had that material in her possession, the point has been made and it’s (far past) time for her to return.
