Default Looks like Armstrong is going to get away with it

The same prosecutor who decided Countrywide broke no laws has now decided Armstrong can't be prosecuted.

Looks like Armstrong bought his way out of it.

All the investigators were recommending charges by filed and expected an indictment within weeks, then suddenly a surprise announcement the Friday evening before the Super Bowl.

This is bullshit.

Or, the facts didn't support the evidence and the prosecutors not wanting to brin suspicion upon their motives release it at a time when nobody would notice. He did nothing criminal.

Do you think the public cares about seven years ago? This is absurd. Next thing we know we'll have a government investigation to see who's buried in Grant's Tomb.

Well, crud, I am an expert featured in a livestrong.com article (without my knowledge). This is awkward.

I am vindicated. Lance saw the allegations and evidence and crumpled.

http://espn.go.com/olympics/cycling/...cycling-career

I won't be able to respect Armstrong until he admits the truth. "Like all the other top cyclists of my era that have been shamed and suspended/banned, I used performance-enhancing treatments and techniques that violated the rules of sport." And even then, I may not respect him.

I missed the part where he confessed. I also missed the part with the evidence. Let me know when either appears.

Lance will never confess. He's a scumbag, and scumbags never confess.

Lance's not going into arbitration was in order to suppress the evidence from teh court of public opinion. That's why you won't see the evidence coming out. Because Lance didn't want it to.

This was his gambit to save what he has left and cry out "Witch hunt!"
