Maria Alyokhina, 1/5 of the group that may hold The Most Edgiest Name of All Time, has wasted no time in speaking her mind after being released from jail this Monday.

Alyokhina and fellow Pussy Riot members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich all received two-year sentences for their profanity-riddled “punk prayer” at a Moscow cathedral in February 2012. Samutsevich was soon released, but the remaining two have just received their freedom papers earlier than scheduled by way of a recently adopted amnesty bill that frees non-violent offenders and mothers.

This act by Pussy Riot’s longtime enemy, Russian president Vladimir Putin, does not impress Alyokhina at all– ITN London News tells us that she told Russian television stations that she would have turned down the offer of amnesty and served out the remainder of her sentence if she was given the choice.

Maria Alyokhina is a 25-year-old mother who once attended the Institute of Journalism and Creative Writing. A committed vegetarian, the pleasant-faced, blonde rioter reportedly passed out from hunger during the trials instead of eating non-vegan jail fare. Imprisonment has now exposed her to the gritty experience of regular body examinations performed by Russian guards; during her interview she made sure to voice the need for prison authorities to be punished for exposing women to “endless humiliations” multiple times a week.

With three members of the group now released and two others presumably free (authorities could never find them), it looks as if Pussy Riot’s anti-Putin movement will resume right where it was halted. Time will only tell if imprisonment has convinced them to attempt tactics that will get their point across without getting arrested.

    Maria Alyokhina should march her pathetic skinny little ass back to Putin and sit in jail for the balance of her sentence, and then some. Ungrateful little lib thinks that she is above the law. Perhaps when she grows up and gets a brain she will realize how ignorant and lucky she is. The pathetic, attention-starved b-rate musician has had her 15 minutes.

    America locks up the most people in the world. They also profit the most from the labor. Go to the south. Go to the plants. Look for yourself. Half the people in American prisons are non-violent. I work in one. I should know.

    Prison also does not make society safer either. The funny thing is that the people running the prisons are worse than the people in the prisons. Yes, there are inmates that are very bad. There is no doubt about this — but that is all you hear about — the bad ones. You never hear about the other 50-60% that really don’t need to be there.

    It is all about money. Doubt what I say? Go visit a prison industrial plant. Go and look. Instead of sitting behind your computer and commenting about shit you have never even seen.
