Plus ça change... sadly.
Ah yes, another celebration of an open society.
The Russian Government wants to have it both ways. All the benefits of Capitalism while still remaining Fascists. Who could ask for anything more? Except maybe their citizens.
That out to put a muff on the riots!
Chachi: That's communists....not facists.

this world we live in seems to be spinning backwards...
Say what you want about either side of our political system, but I'm glad I live in a country where I won't get two years in prison for performing at a rock concert.
What a travesty. I no we are quickly becoming a police state here, but we have a long way to go until we are at Russia's level of heavy handedness.
No one here knows enough about Russian law to make a clear and knowledgeable judgement on this case. In America they would clearly be innocent of anything other than misdemeanor mischief or disturbing the peace or something on that order. However, we hear so often from so many Americans, on both sides of the aisle, that we need to stay out of other countrys' affairs, and this may be a perfect example, but I admit I do not know. The fact is they were convicted by a Russian court, which like it or not is a LEGAL. We don't have to like their laws, but we also don't live there. Frankly, I am much more concerned about serious legal controversies and human rights issues in countries like China.
