    There is a lot of implication in the OP, which is revolting. We have an American being held overseas on a trumped up charge and being used as a political pawn by a tyrannical regime - and you start a thread like this.

    Disgusting.

    If someone is being held by a regime like Putin's and used like this, I don't give a fuck what their politics are. I'll support that person in whatever way I can.

    You kept asking why we can't release Paul Whelan. That is nowhere close to cheering for him to suffer.

    Why didn't you cheer for Paul Whelan to suffer the worst the Russian penal system could throw at him, like you did for a black American who was detained in Russia?

    Let me interupt your victory dance with your boyfriend Earl, to remind you that Earl totally fucked up. I literally wrote about Paul Whelan. I said nothing, nada zilch about Trevor Reed, who Biden got out of Russian prison last year.

    I'll tell ya - on a thread like this, you really see the kind of hate & disdain the LGBTQ community has to deal with on a daily basis...

    Dood, I told you that I read about one but not the other.

    Why is Paul Whelan still languishing in a Russian prison?

    Doesn’t Slow Joe care about him?

I need no proof of anything to know that she was in a country were Blacks are all but nonexistent, and would have stood out like a sore thumb to those authorities. That likely got their attention and as a consequence, she got more attention in terms of being searched and questioned by those authorities.

    There are lots of countries where the laws, authorities, etc., are corrupt or quite different from what they are in the US. So? If you are going to a foreign nation, be knowledgeable of their laws. For example, in the UK you have no protections like the 5th amendment or getting a Miranda warning from authorities. There, the law is you answer all their questions truthfully or you get an additional charge for not doing so. That isn't corruption, that's how their laws work.
    Guilty until proven innocent is common around the world in criminal matters too. So? That's how the Russian system works, and it isn't uncommon either. Don't apply American values to other countries when you are visiting them. Know how the locals expect you to behave.
    You have a bit of a habit of saying "no one cares" just because YOU don't care.

    MANY care about this situation. Sorry to have to be the one to break it to ya.

    Biden doesn’t care.

    Griner is still in prison...for probably 10 years unless there is a swap.

    I think Biden cares a great deal.

    Will they do a swap? Who knows - there are a lot of considerations there. But any good American is hoping and praying that she gets released and does not have to serve time in Russia.
