Don't Pick On Putin Or The Orthodox Church In Russia

This article describes the trial and sentencing of a rock group which was critical of Putin and the powerful Orthodox church.  They were convicted of hooliganism which is a loosly defined crime in Russia.  Many of the rock groups in the US would be convicted of the same crime if we decided to prosecute them for hooliganism.
