Scapegoat: The Barry Bonds Story

Testimony of Santiago and Bonds were similar

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=li-santiago021809

Benito Santiago and Barry Bonds gave similar testimony to a federal grand jury in 2003, yet only Bonds was charged with perjury. And Santiago was shown evidence against him before he testified, while Bonds was denied the same opportunity, sources said.

More than any other of the 30-odd athletes who testified before the grand jury in the long-running BALCO case, Santiago’s testimony suggests that the government engaged in selective prosecution by filing charges against Bonds...

Santiago, like several other ballplayers who testified, responded to prosecutor Jeff Nedrow’s questions by indicating Anderson didn’t identify the Clear or other drugs, such as testosterone, as steroids.

Screw the Feds. I'm not naive enough to pretend Barry didn't use, but it's becoming increasingly more clear (pun not intended) he's being singled out. Enough is enough.
