But don't forget that this was about an illegal drugs ie steroids(legal in baseball controlled substance for us regular people since the early 90s) his trainer was an illegal drug dealer

Should've said this was about illegal drugs ie steroids and thumbing your nose at federal prosecutors. Was Bonds persecuted maybe but he did apparently impede an investigation into ILLEGAL drugs. Steroids and such have been a controlled substance since the early 90s worthy of doctor's prescription. The feds investigation was just not to findout if Bonds used steroids. What would've comeout with an admission would an investigation into the ILLEGAL drug suppliers that Bonds & others used. That's probably why Bonds trainer stayed silent because if he admitted he supplied Bonds the feds would want to know who supplied him and so on. Bonds lack of full cooperation and use of high powered lawyers turned this into a long drawnout federal case.
Do you think the local gym rat would've been able to drag this kind of investigation out for 8 years?

Amazing our govt made a big deal out of this but when the Bush gang lied to congress in 2002 about the iraq threat, nothing was done to them even though that illegal war killed a million innocent people.
