Lance Armstrong Investigation: Are Pro Athletes Being Harassed?

I read on a regular basis, sometimes from comments left on this blog, that the government shouldn't be harassing Lance Armstrong, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds or other pro athletes for using performance enhancing drugs or for lying to Congress. Others have said that the investigations are modern-day witch hunts. This editorial from the Rockland County Times expresses a well-reasoned response to that opinion.

  1. Nice link. Obviously there is more to it than just trying to catch cheaters but that article does sum up some of my opinions as well. Any federal service be it law enforcement or health care of student loans costs us money and if you selectively stop going after cheats who's to say you might not also stop going after other types of criminals at some point? The law should not be for everyone except elite athletes...
