They wear masks so may be the police didn't know who they were yet, if they were even notified?

I can't know, but I don't think so. I think they were ready to get 15 days of arrest or some fine, nothing more than that.

They probably would, if they didn't start an international shitstorm.

We must dissent.

Quote:Two members of the anti-Putin band Pussy Riot have been sent to remote prison colonies to serve their sentences for hooliganism, according to supporters of the group.

Maria Alyokhina, 24, will serve her sentence at a prison in the Perm region in the Ural Mountains, about 800 miles east of Moscow, while Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, has been sent to a prison in the Volga republic of Mordovia, 350 miles south-east of Moscow,

"Nadya… was sent to Mordovia. A camp of hell," the modern art group Voina said on Twitter, citing sources inside the Moscow prison where the two were being held.

For most bands, touring means playing a show when they come to new town, not being tossed behind bars

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

Pussy Riot + Cossack Riot Control = Pussy whipped! Seriously, Pussy Riot give both pussies and riots a bad name. About time to send them back to a Siberian labour camp.

Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill

RE: Who or What is Russia's "Pussy Riot?"
The whole Pussy Riot phenomenon is just getting weirder and weirder. Something rather basic is not adding up. How is it that what should be an obscure performance art group has managed to get that much attention, and become a matter of international diplomacy and font page news? Whatever trivial, bland political clichés they scream out do not cut it as punk rock. I would not buy an album of their work even as a joke, and I collect punk.

As for today's performance at Sochi, those Cossack whipsmen were so over-the-top they had to be a pre-arranged part of the act. I was reminded of sadomasochistic performances at very underground countercultural theaters.

I don't like to think of myself as a sadist but I did derive pleasure, perhaps more than I should have, from seeing Pussy Riot get whipped by cossacks. I think I would've been just as content to see them dragged off by their ears by old babushkas. Should I seek help?
