Barry Bonds WTF?

How does somebody get convicted of obstruction of justice, and yet the same jury is hung on whether he committed perjury? How can you obstruct justice if you don't lie?

It's completely possible. But I believe he should be convicted of perjury as well.

Did he do something to "obstruct justice" while he was not testifying? I thought this whole ordeal was about what he testified about. Obviously some of the jury thinks he didn't commit perjury, yet those same people think he obstructed justed.

WTF am I missing here, and I am serious as a heart attack. Any lawyers in here?

Well the first possibility "he didn't tell all he knew" when asked a question, that's seems like splitting hairs on whether or not he lied.

Of course we don't have the transcripts or know the exact instructions to the jury, but this seems kinda weak.

I don't recall reading about any pressure from him on others.

I typed in "obstruction of justice but didn't commit perjury" and I got this at the top of the list:

http://www.twitlonger.com/show/6sger4

That was no help.

I found this down the google search:

http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...-sense-at-all/

Here is the money quote, the first paragraph:

Quote:
The jury has reached a hung verdict on the other three remaining counts. This makes no sense at all
.

Down this link is some assinine reasoning reported by the jury.

I think this is fukd up. YMMV.

The point is that he essentially did the same thing. Except he was a President and Barry is...well not.

They need to investigate the federal reserve or something worthwhile and leave Barry and his roids alone. If there were not smart enough to test baseball player's then shame on them. Does it really affect your life whether Barry lied about using roids. Nooope. So why use our tax dollars to mess with it. Use our money wisely not on this stupid shit.
