Barry Bonds' Indictment

Some background: Barry Bonds, who just this year passed Hank Aaron as the all-time home run champion, was indicted this past November 15th by a federal grand jury in San Fransisco, accused of lying when he said that he did not knowingly take steroids. He will appear in court on Friday.

Read these two articles from ESPN on Barry:

Both authors are black, and both mention the race issue. One article says that race is a factor, and the other says that race is not a factor, both comparing Barry Bonds to other people in similar situations. Which do you agree with? First, is Barry's indictment a good thing or a bad thing? Second, is Barry's race (he's black) a factor in this decision? Should it be? Remember to justify...
