Barry Bonds indicted on perjury, obstruction charges
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3112487


This has been 4 years in the making, and you'd think they would just drop it, but someone really has it in for Bonds. White America won't ever give up. If you are black and have money, they comin' for you.


Discuss.

I'm surprised it took this long.

Baseball wanted to get as much money out of him as they could before they dropped the hammer. I'm willing to bet anything this was lined up before the home run chase, but hey...why stop your cash flow. Bud Selig comes to the press all giddy that they made a record 6 billion in the last year, on the same day Bonds gets indicted. You know that was all planned. It's a slap in the face to Barry. He brought them a ton of revenue. Dude is guilty most likely, but any outcry from any fan or media not in support of him is hypocritical. Completely singled out here. I've ranted on this before, but here we are again.

I think lying under oath is what got him. Perjury is not really all that cool. Feds really crack down on that stuff. Ask Scooter or Bill Clinton.

Could have just admitted he took steroids back in 2003 when he was under oath. Like Giambi did. Would have been granted immunity.

Barry's ego wouldn't let him, now he's lookin at 30 years max. Plus, Barry has tested positive. For amphetamines and anabolic steroids.

"Three months after the BALCO raid, on Dec. 4, 2003, Bonds testified under a grant of immunity before a federal grand jury in San Francisco. According to the indictment, Bonds was informed of the positive test.

"So, I got to ask, Mr. Bonds," a federal prosecutor said during the grand jury proceedings, according to the indictment, "there's this number associated on a document with your name, and corresponding to Barry B. on the other document, and it does have these two listed anabolic steroids as testing positive in connection with it. Do you follow my question?"

Bonds replied that he did.

"So, I guess I got to ask the question again, I mean, did you take steroids? And specifically this test [in November of 2000]. So, I'm going to ask you in the weeks and months leading up to November 2000, were you taking steroids?"

Bonds responded, "No."


But innocent until proven guilty.

He shouldn't have been stupid enough to allow himself to get used then.

I wasn't completely serious with that comment, but if you look at the frequency of high profile black individuals recently to whites, you would see the discrepancy here. Yeah it boils down to not breaking the law, but the Feds try their hardest (and seemingly spend a lot more tax dollars) to dig some dirt up on them if they get any indication something is afoot. But continue to roll your eyes. What do you know, wanker.

Not true, Lindsey Lohan went to jail the other day for cocaine-possession and a DUI. Granted it was only for 84 minutes but still.

I assume you'd have figures that back this up, and further figures that prove the ratio is higher than ratio of proportions of high profile blacks who break the law to proportion of high profile whites who break the law, yes?

Really !!
I Think Barry Is being Fucked With.. Because He Broke Ruth's Record.
They Can't Let Him Walk Away With It Like Hank.
All The Shit Hank Went Through... The Death Threat Letters And Such..And Since Barry Going Through Bullshit
For Being The Next Black Homerun Leader...And It's Not Like Barry Is The Only One..FBI Just Want Him
Like He Lied.. For Not Having Knowledge! (Imao)
And Palmaro Lied Under Oath.. But He's Cool With Bush That's What Got Him Off The Hook.

We Will See What Happens!

Well I Think Barry Is Getting All the Pointed fingers... They Talk Like He's Behind It All!
When There Was a Lot Players Also Who Lied Under Oath..And I Don't Think He Took Em''.
I Think It's All a Witch Hunt To Take His Record.
You Know He Was Never Nice To The Media..Reporters Talk Like He Is all ready Guilty..

It wasn't Greg Anderson that flipped on him, its his pussy on the side mistress thats testifying against him.

Figures its an axe wound that the feds are relying on.

Personally, I think Barry did lie and is a fuck but a lot of pitchers were taking asteroids too, so shit happens.

If he goes to jail or prison I'm not gonna feel bad for the guy. My only hope is Griffey isnt asked to testify against him.
