Despite the attempt by prosecutors to make it harder for young Bengals' WR Chris Henry to complete the work he has undertaken to rebuild his reputation and regain his roster spot, the truth has come out.
On Monday, prosecutors leaked information that Henry had failed a drug test in Kentucky. The result was that ESPN.com, SI.com and all the others ran stories implying that an impending failed drug test would be in the near future.
The devilish attempt of the prosecutor to secure the end of Henry's NFL career imploded today.
On Wednesday, the state of Kentucky released the following statement:
"This information did not come from the state Division of Probation & Parole. Repeated referrals to our office by the Kenton County Attorney's office were wrong. The Kenton County Attorney's Office has no jurisdiction in our probation supervision of Henry. Our office
did, however, receive results of a drug test conducted on Henry today, and those results were negative."
This is completely outrageous and further indication of the widespread effort to destroy the careers of young Negro athletes.
Clearly, a county attorney's office that has NO jurisdiction over the probationary terms of Mr. Henry attempting to sabotage his future is a heinous and evil act.
It would only seem fair that Mr. Henry assume the right to litigious action. This sort of ill timed, ill conceived and ill willed manipulation of the media by the "prosecutor's" office could have cost Mr. Henry the rest of the season. And it certainly further damaged his healing reputation.
The righteous outcome would be for Kenyon county to provide remuneration of equal amount to the money that will be forfeited during the enforcement of Mr. Henry' ex post facto suspension.
It is imperative that those that are trusted to enforce the law be held accountable for their actions.
One can only wonder about the injustices and evilish schemes that lie in wait for Pacman Jones and Michael Vick.
