ABSTRACT
The author comments on the lawsuit filed against Barry Bonds, a U.S. Major League Baseball outfielder. Bonds is under investigation by a federal grand jury regarding his testimony in the BALCO case, and was indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges. The author argues that Bonds is being shafted by the U.S. legal system. He believes that Bonds' case is part of a pattern of judicial abuse, the stretching of the law like rubber to allow prosecutors to go after unpopular figures in business, politics and, now, sports.
