Curt Schilling clearly has no problem seeing Brittney Griner‘s detention in Russia drag on … the ex-MLB star said Sunday night he believes the WNBA player should “pay the penalty for breaking another country’s laws.”
Schilling wrote the controversial statement on his Twitter page — in a response to LeBron James‘ plea to bring Griner home.
“I know this may seem like a stretch,” the 55-year-old said. “But something like 300 million people understand ‘OBEY THE F***ING LAW’, why is that such a challenge?”
“And why on earth should she NOT pay the penalty for breaking another country’s laws?”
Griner has been locked in a cell in Russia since mid-February, after authorities said they found hashish oil in her luggage at an airport in Moscow.
At a hearing in the case earlier this month, Griner pled guilty to the charges … telling a judge at the time, “I didn’t want to break the law.”
Schilling obviously believes her plea and subsequent statements are justification for her to remain behind bars as long as Russia sees fit.
“She, as far as I know from every quote of hers,” Schilling said, “has NEVER denied committing the crime, not once.”
The United States government, meanwhile, has classified Griner as “wrongfully detained” and is in the process of negotiating with Russia to bring her home.
Griner is facing a punishment of up to 10 years behind bars following her guilty plea. Another hearing in her case has been scheduled for next week.
From what I have read the Russian government wants the U.S. to trade a Russian arms dealer that is being held by the U.S. in trade for the crud Griner. The Russians would be getting the best deal Just like the great deal the U.S. gave for the deserter in the middle east when they traded 5 terrorist for the no good piece of s#%t. It would serve her right to be left to pay for her crime. I wonder if she would like the hear the National Anthem now at the games in America……
You go Curt. Thank you
That’s the problem with the ELITES in this Country for so many years they have gotten a simple warning about what they did wrong & then released without consequences but you let the AVERAGE PERSON do a lot less and the court throws the MAX SENTENCE at them. Only when we ALL GET TREATED THE SAME WAY BY THE COURTS will this Country start getting back on track
I definitely agree with ya 110%. Where’s the fairness? There is none especially if your white. It really sucks & this is suppose to be America🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Ya right🥵💔🌈
Why say your thoughts when the sensor police block it on this site
She deserves prison time! Total fool just like loudmouth Lebron James, complete idiot!
She should not be treated as if she didn’t break any laws. She was in Russia & a visitor to the country. You don’t go to a country that has very strict laws & rules & disrespect that country. They don’t care what color you are, what your occupation is, you don’t break there laws. She may be some hero here, but she is a nobody in Russia. Why should she not have to do her time? She committed a crime. She got caught & now is trying to make some excuses of why it was in her suitcase. Blah, Blah, Blah!!!
