I'm sure they will imprison someone before we do, that's if we ever will.

At least in Russia they will not have the cushy life that they would have in prison here. I hope that 10 years means that.

Sounds like a plan that we could adopt maybe..

Hmm. Sounds as though the woman who introduced the bill, is not around anymore. Did it actually go through? I can't believe Putin cares tuppence for Muslim women and girls.
