Two years in prison for teddy bears
Foreign teddy bears invaded the country of Belarus and a border guard is the fall guy. The Belarus Supreme Court ruled the guard failed to report an intrusion of a plane that dropped hundreds of teddy bears decked out in parachutes and slogans supporting human rights and sentenced him to two years. Belarus is a small former Soviet-bloc country that's tightly controlled. The court wouldn't give his name or rank. It happened on July 4 of last year and the Belarus president already fired several top national defense officials over the incident. Turns out the plane was piloted by two Swedish advertising employees who wanted to show support for human rights activists in Belarus.
