it is Russia, not so surprising. Anyway.......or is the band name too offensive for this forum ? and also, a russian friend told me that it will be a political statement to support "the girl band" and oppose a possible court ruling in favor of the state attorney) Since the rule is: no politics in the forum please delete this post dear forum admin!!!! biggrin.gif

Yes, it is indeed a bit too much for the forum.

Great minds think alike! I almost posted this myself but the band name kept me from it.

"Hooliganism"


Are you kidding me? Thats what I did when I was a kid growing up, playing video games, and skating at public places. Never went to jail or faced trial for it. Good lord.

Tell me about it. I can understand why people view things like it as a public nuisance, that's fair enough.. but really, looking at the bigger picture, it's not exactly war or genocide is it ?

I wonder if they contemplated the consequences of their endeavours before they did it. I'm not exactly surprised by the outcome.

They must have known they would upset the church and state with this.

Whilst the punishment doesn't fit the crime, I'm not brimming over with sympathy

When walking my dogs I always pick up their poop, unless they do it on some church property.

So I guess that I should also go to prison.

Really? By comparison I guess I"m a Bleeding Heart which is a first smile.gif Thrown in jail for a stunt like that? I"ve actually done impromptu gigs at churches/school grounds, any where we could find electric power and plugin in my earliest outtings before we were old enough to play bars. I'm glad we don't live in Russian or all my bandmates would be in prison for sure!

Well, no, you always poop scoop right? You'd only need to go to prison if you skipped it wink.gif
