    I am glad to hear this.

    Not to get political, but maybe they can get busy on something that matters now.

    I agree. I'm almost positive he lied, but there was no reason for him to be under oath in the first place.

    Still, the justice system seems to have failed.

    I would really hope people from both sides of the aisle agree with you.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    What's political about lying under oath? He had enough money to keep his *** out of prison, justice served.

    Exactly. If he lied under oath and got away with it, the whole system is undermined. That serves nobody but lawbreakers.

    Agree.

    Just because he was called to a trial/hearings that we all may feel was meaningless and a waste of money, doesn't change the fact that every day our justice system is being made a mockery of by people considered to be celebrities. Lying under oath, even for a bad trial, is still lying under oath.

    Re: Clemens found Not Guilty

    When all of this stuff came out a few years ago---I think the failed tests from that point forward should be dealt with.

    Not all this retroactive he said /she said crap. the MLB didn't have accountability before in the 1990's, so they should of just of started fresh and write that decade off.
