Where do the priorities of the United States justice system lie? Barry Bonds has been indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice, all while the lives of American soldiers are lost every day in Iraq, all while we are in the midst of one of the most important presidential campaigns in US history, and the United States justice system is concerned about wether or not an 'Athlete' is hitting to many homeruns. Don't kid yourself, this isn't about justice and preventing future people from lying in grand jury testimony, this is about pop-corn headlines and prosecutors who want to read their name on the ESPN ticker. Murderers, Rapists, and Pedafiles run loose every day and you know what is on the front page of MSN.Com, the f*cking indictment of the most prolific home run hitter of all-time, because it's important that he spend time behind bars right? PLEASE. This is the American way though, recall when President Clinton was going to be Impeached for lying about a blowjob which is EVEN MORE REDICULOUS. I'm begging people to look at this and ask one question, whose setting their priorities within the justice system? Several years ago when McGwire, Sosa, and Palmiero sat in front of the people who are supposed to be RUNNING THE COUNTRY to determine what is being shot into their ass that makes them hit homeruns, I was disgraced, disgraced at the fact that those men aren't out solving other important problems in the US, instead they want to grill ball players, excellent idea. Thumbs up to all of you who don't get it, something needs to change.
