Heinous criminal indicted...Huh?
Let's see. A top federal government official discloses the identity of an undercover CIA agent to punish the agent's husband, all for crass political motives, and then lies about it...That official gets pardoned by the so-called president of the United States.
But now the President's Justice Department helps convince a federal grand jury to indict a baseball player for lying about whether he took steroids.
My new priority I guess is: Free Barry Bonds!
But unlike some Mumia* supporters, at least I know Bonds is guilty. I just think Bonds should be left alone. Baseball owners looked the other way during the Steriods Era and Bonds should not be made a scapegoat.
* Calm down, Mumia fans. I don't think Mumia was guilty of first degree murder. I think he just came upon his brother getting unfairly beat up by a white police officer, got into it with the officer, and the officer ended up dead. That is less a first degree than a second degree murder, and not one where a person should be sentenced to death under the circumstances. There were also some questionable prosecution tactics and scam witnesses in the trial, which occurred in an atmosphere not conducive to due process.
