Roger Clemens Not Guilty, but Should Case Have Even Gone to Trial?
After first a mistrial, in a second attempt to convict him, famed pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty of perjury Monday.
On Monday, after months of testimony and who knows at what cost, famed baseball pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to Congress. CNN News reported Clemens was found not guilty on all six of the charges he faced. The alleged perjury reportedly happened when he was testifying during an investigation of steroid use among Major League Baseball players.
Last week, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced that it was, again, going after cyclist Lance Armstrong for allegedly using performance enhancing drugs during his 16-year career. This also comes after previous attempts to prosecute him and strip him of his seven world Tour de France titles proved unsuccessful.
Our question here is, are these cases something the American people are interested in our government spending money on, especially in this current economy?
