(Newser) – Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina wasn't getting along with her fellow prisoners—so she's been moved to a cell of her own. Alekhina requested the transfer after "some tensions arose in relationships"; she moved "to prevent this situation from escalating," says a prison rep. Russian media have suggested that the prisoners were having religious arguments, but the rep says that's not true. The spokeswoman wouldn't comment on a tabloid news site's report claiming Alekhina's cellmates made violent threats, Reuters notes.

Hmmm, So Alekhina requested the transfer after "some tensions arose in relationships"; I assume this was the part where the Bull Dyke of the cell block tried to make this pussy her bitch and things just didn't work out.

George, you do have a point there as minute as it is. There is some truth to what he is saying. No one wants to admit it because they will be called a racist..
