A woman in Saudi Arabia was sentenced to 34 years in prison. Why, you may ask? Because she tweeted!!! Apparently she was siding with people in exile while criticizing the government. Thank God we have the First Amendment here.

This is an outrageous sentence for simply voicing an opinion on Twitter. The woman in question should be released immediately and her rights restored. This type of punishment is a clear violation of free speech and human rights.

I cannot even imagine being sentenced to 34 years in prison for simply tweeting. It just goes to show how different the world is between Saudi Arabia and the United States. Here, we are free to express our opinions without fear of retribution, which is a fundamental right that should be protected at all costs.

This just goes to show how important the First Amendment is. I'm glad we can express our opinions freely in this country, and I hope every country adopts similar policies.

It is outrageous of course but I wouldn't be so quick to think we could never go in that direction. Just look at the current climate; women are being jailed for miscarriages.
