Sports Anti-Doping Regime Has No Sense of Justice

Update: Part 2 of the LA Times story on WADA's Kafkaesque drug-testing regime is online.
Original post:

This first part of an investigative series by the Los Angeles Times on anti-doping regime in the sports world confirms what I have thought for a long time. Dick Pound (pictured at left), the head of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), and his pack of WADA sycophants are not interested in fairness or justice. They are zealots who have established a regime where they serve as cops, prosecutors, judge, jury, and executioner. In addition to these titles, Dick Pound is just an all-around jerk, who thinks he is smarter and more righteous than anyone else, and seems to suffer from a god complex wherein he believes that only he can save the integrity of sport. I hope this series by the Times helps spur a movement to reform this horribly unjust system that punishes the innocent and the guilty side by side, with little to no regard for which is which.

The WADA officials should be subject to the same testing regimen as the athletes. Those testing positive should be punished the same way -- returning all their accumulated pay and expenses, and being barred for life from any kind of employment. When they end up on the pavers, begging, they should be arrested for solicitation. They should also be barred from receiving any public relief.

Turnabout is fair play. We learned that on the playground as children.
