bonds gets off

Barry Bonds was found "guilty" of only the obstruction of justice charge. Mistrial on three counts of perjury after the jury failed to reach a verdict.

That's cool, I guess.

The main points here:

- Yes, Bonds used steroids.
- Yes, he lied about it.
- Yes, there should be an asterisk next to his name for the home run records.

But, I'm glad he got off, because I didn't really want to see him do time over this. We have too many people, too many men of color, and too many black men locked up as it is.

Besides, Barry Bonds has created a prison, and a hell, for himself.
