BLOG: Barry Bonds Should Be Tried
For everyone that says that Barry Bonds shouldn’t be going to trial because the government shouldn’t be involved in steroids and baseball, and everyone knew the players were using, you are missing the point. Bonds is being tried for lying to a grand jury. He never needed to lie. He was given immunity. He wasn’t in trouble. He was being questioned in someone’s else case. He lied. Simple. Don’t lie, especially under oath. If you let Bonds go, what message do you send to other people, especially rich people who feel like they can lie because the government won’t spend the money to prosecute them? Whether or not you think Bonds using steroids is a big deal or not is not the point. He is accused of lying to a grand jury investigating a crime. That is a big deal.
