Justice? Strip His Records

by Mike Vaccaro - December 8th, 2007 - New York Post

Jail? Jail is for rapists and thieves and swindlers and murderers. Jail is for the blue-collar hoods who so readily swap lives for money, and for the white-collar smoothies who make old ladies' pensions disappear with a keystroke. Is that really what you want for Barry Bonds? Really?

Baseball fans, the only ones who were even remotely hurt by whatever Bonds may have done, yearn for a different kind of justice. They want an eraser taken to the record books, and to their own memory banks. They want Hank Aaron and Roger Maris restored to where they once stood.

What we have here is one more example of the tyrannical power of today's "game" of court. It is dominated by the "rule of judges", not the rule of law. As such they will allow the courts to extort money from companies that never broke a single law. Or criminalize the behavior of a sports figure who also abided by the rules at the time he competed. After the fact justice should not be permitted. We should have had a stipulation in our Constitution that the federal justice system should never be permitted. More and more we have persecutors, not prosecutors.

Since the court system is a game I guess they figure they should control the game of baseball too.

Barry Bonds does not deserve to replace Hank Aaron as the all time home run king. His records are the records of steroid enhanced performance. I have stopped caring about baseball because of the failure of baseball to maintain the integrity of the game. That said, the problem is not Barry Bonds. There are a couple of other players whose records are a blemish. The problem was the officials in charge of the game. It is their job, not the job of the criminal courts.

Our court system is an abusive and tyrannical joke. The "persecutor" in this case is no different than Mike Nifong. He too should be disbarred.
But he won't be. Too bad. Someone should change the rules and let us go after those criminals in after the fact rewriting of justice.
