Brittney Griner: 'It's the most audacious hostage taking by a state imaginable,' says former captive - CNN "I think that every time reporters repeat that narrative, we're doing some of the dirty work of the hostage takers for them. My attitude is Brittney Griner is innocent of any crimes until the world sees otherwise," adds Rezaian This has a lot of hallmarks of a very wrongful and arbitrary detention," he explained. "I found the video from the Russian customs service odd. They're parading her before cameras. The mugshot was completely unnecessary and asinine." The Russian Customs Service claims that Griner was 'smuggling significant amounts of narcotic substances' and says that a criminal case is underway. A potential jail sentence of 10 years has been mentioned. "They're making her out to sound like a drug kingpin. I think that it is unlikely that Ms. Griner will get a fair trial," concludes Franks, "because nobody gets a fair trial in Russia. It's a rigged game --- He's right..shame on you victim blaming c00ns on here She likely gonna be I'm that bish for a few years. I don't see her getting out unless Putin wins the war or the Sanctions end...they still haven't gotten two former Marines out and they're white.
