Free Pussy Riot

Something that just appeared in my Facebook feed that I'm sure we can all get behind.

Three young women are being detained by Russian authorities for allegedly performing a protest song in a cathedral as part of a feminist punk group "Pussy Riot".

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Ekaterina Samutsevich were arrested in March 2012 and charged with "hooliganism". Russian prosecutors are seeking three years prison for the musicians.
What? Why're you all looking at me like that?

Barring additional evidence... I'm leaning toward guilty.

Every ex-wh*re tends to lecture everybody with age. Especially during world tours and concerts.

Re: Free Pussy Riot

NPR was covering this pretty heavily a few weeks back. There's nothing like hearing a very serious Michele Norris say "Pussy Riot" a dozen or so times.

Maybe it wasn't Michele Norris. Melissa Block?

Well, by DVDTalk standards, Capital Punishment should be administered immediately!

Re: Free Pussy Riot

A church is no place for a protest song!

Unless they had booked the cathedral in advance, of course.

After listening to their "music", they deserve the death penalty.

Disappointed there's no news footage of overgrown mutant pussies throwing rocks through windows and running off with TV sets.

I'm feeling nostalgic. Pussy Riot sound like punk rockers who have something to be angry about, instead of faux-punk acts like Green Day. And anyone who gets arrested for being too political should get the support of anyone who liked the Dead Kennedys.

Re: Free Pussy Riot

Throw the book at the other two but Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is Not Guilty:



Spoiler:


This looks like something out of another Hannibal Lecter movie:
