Do People Still Care About Marion Jones??? Her ESPN “30 For 30” Special “Press Pause” Directed By John Singleton Airs On Tonight

- By Bossip Staff

ESPN has unrolled some really special programming with their “30 For 30” series and tonight’s episode focuses on one of histories worst sports scandals — Marion Jones’ steroid use at the Olympics and her subsequent admission of using the banned drugs which resulted in her having her medals stripped and being sent to prison.

Watch the clip below:

Marion’s story is tragic, but we wondered if perhaps she has been judged more harshly than other public figures who have done wrong and been forgiven.

Roman Polanski was convicted of raping a 13-year-old but he escaped serving time and many Hollywood figures have forgiven him publicly and even pressed for the charges against him to be dropped.

Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown, T.I., Mike Tyson and Martha Stewart who have broken the law — and again, many of their fans have forgiven them and continued to support them.

Marion Jones’ crime wasn’t victimless, but is she beyond redemption??? Are you interested in seeing her ESPN special? If she wanted to return to sports, do you think she should be allowed to have another chance?
