RANT! Drugs and bad conduct in professional sports (again)

I find myself writing on this subject again. I wrote about it when the lowlife Michael Vick pled guilty to animal cruelty charges and now I write as Barry Bonds is indicted for lying while under oath.

I know that most of the commentary on the web and the mainstream media is regarding Mr. Bonds use of steroids. But that isn’t the charge! Rather, he is being charged that he obstructed justice by lying under oath. Even Martha Stewart spent time in for a similar violation.

Lying under oath is a serious charge and the talking heads like Charles Barkley don’t seem to get it. They think this is a witch hunt about steroid use. It isn’t. It is about lying under oath when you shouldn’t lie. At a minimum he should have cited his 5th amendment rights when asked the question.

I don’t know if Mr. Bonds is guilty and in the US we are innocent until proven guilty. However, if Mr. Bonds is guilty of this transgression then

MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF BONDS AND THROW THE BOOK AT HIM!

I am done with this topic for now but I reserve the right to rant more on it someday.
