America Justice is a fraud. Lance Armstrong not to face criminal charges despite confession on Oprah show, of his years of illegal drug use
New York –February 7– All across America, Americans and Canadians are arrested, charged and even jailed over use of illegal drugs. Yet, famous cyclist, Lance Armstrong, is likely to avoid any criminal charges for his confessed illegal drug use on national, global TV.
America Justice is a fraud, if Lance Armstrong walks completely free of criminal charges; despite confession on Oprah show, of his years of illegal drug use
During dramatic, exclusive interviews with Oprah Winfrey, that was televised around the world, Armstrong confessed on January 17 and 18, 2013 to lying about years of using performance-enhancing drugs, throughout his career!
Yet, U.S. Attorney for Southern California, Andre Birotte, spoke out on Armstrong for the first time publicly on Tuesday, February 5th; after he suddenly dropped the case publicly on Friday, February 1, 2013. U.S. Attorney Birotte stated that his office had spent almost two years investigating Armstrong, including drug distribution, fraud and conspiracy.
U.S. Attorney Birotte was quoted saying, “We made a decision on that case (Lance Armstrong illegal drug doping case), I believe, a little over a year ago. Obviously we’ve been well-aware of the statements that have been made by Mr. Armstrong and other media reports. That has not changed my view at this time. Obviously, we’ll consider, we’ll continue to look at the situation, but that hasn’t changed our view as I stand here today.”
Many people question U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte’s decision NOT to press criminal charges against Lance Armstrong, despite his confessions of EXTENSIVE illegal drug use.
Many questions are raised about the American Justice system and this extraordinary lenient treatment being given to Lance Armstrong. How many Americans and Canadians are in prison for drug offences, distribution, possession, use? For much less amounts of money or drugs involved. Yet, Armstrong walks free; while some of these drug users and sellers face years in jail, and a criminal record?!
Most frighteningly is the race dimension to Lance Armstrong’s lack of criminal charges?!
How many academic studies have suggested that there is over-representation of ethnic persons charged and jailed for petty drug crimes? Would Lance Armstrong be getting some lenient treatment if he were Black or Latino?
By funny fate, on the same day that the investigation into Lance Armstrong were dropped by US Attorney Andre Birotte, Weizhen Tang, the self-proclaimed Chinese Warren Buffett, was sentenced to upwards of 11 years for $52-Million CAD ponzi scheme fraud against American, Canadian, and Chinese investors. Weizhen Tang, often claimed that racism was part of the reason that he was persecuted by the police, SEC and OSC, for ponzi fraud.
Tang was convicted of being one of the worst ponzi scheme frauds in Canada, on October 30, 2013. Tang ranted in public, on the internet about the racism of the Canadian, Western legal system; the persecution against him, because he, Weizhen Tang, is Chinese, not Caucasian; because Tang is not part of the elite…
Yet, there are no criminal charges against Lance Armstrong; despite his admissions to the legendary Oprah Winfrey –and thus, the entire world that Lance Armstrong very much deliberately used illegal drugs, for YEARS!
The failure is glaring. The U.S. Attorney’s office, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte, are NOT going to charge Lance Armstrong with any criminal offence?! Such easy treatment that Lance Armstrong is getting, should make the public wonder about the fairness of the justice system:
White, elite cyclist, Lance Armstrong, becomes hero, global brand.
White, elite hero, Lance Armstrong, confesses uniequivocally to the ENTIRE world to Oprah, about his YEARS of illegal drug use; and his strategy of intimidating witnesses, sponsors, media, to coverup his drug use.
White, elite cyclist, Lance Armstrong faces NO criminal charges…
Judges, prosecutors, members of the media and public have been laughing at convicted criminals such as Weizhen Tang, and their contentions of an unfair justice system. Weizhen Tang ranted for years of deliberate persecution against him; of a legal and justice system filled with racism.
If Lance Armstrong walks free for his years of illegal drug use, without significant criminal charges, American Justice really has failed; and American and Canadian politicians, Justice officials owe an explanation to the millions of American and Canadians who have been charged, convicted, jailed, for illegal drug use.
