Pussy Riot members jailed for two years for hooliganism


www.bbc.com

Three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been jailed for two years after staging an anti-Vladimir Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral.

Judge Marina Syrova convicted the women of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred, saying they had "crudely undermined social order".

The women say the protest, in February, was directed at the Russian Orthodox Church leader's support for Mr Putin.

Alot of people are going to say bad on them for doing this in a church, but I say it sounds like the church had it coming:


The women say the protest, in February, was directed at the Russian Orthodox Church leader's support for Mr Putin.


and then:


Their brief, obscenity-laced performance, which implored the Virgin Mary to "throw Putin out", enraged the Orthodox Church - its leader Patriarch Kirill said it amounted to blasphemy.

Mr Putin was elected for a third term as president two weeks later.

Alyokhina, Tolokonnikova and Samutsevich, watching Friday's proceedings from inside a glass-walled cage in the courtroom, smiled as the widely predicted conviction was announced.


Leaders of Russia's largets church endorsing Putin? Damn right they had it coming, and really jailed in glass boxes inside the courtroom? What do you guys think?

Unbelieveable.

As bad as things are getting here in the West, at least we arent were Russia is today. Im sure if Putin had his way, and he just might before long, he would drawn the Iron Curtains closed again.

I hope these girls will be ok, they dont deserve this.
