Ban the WADA


Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

Ban the WADA

If the WADA can't fight doping without trampling on basic human rights

-presumption of innocence
-self incrimination
-unreasonable searches and seizures
-due process

then a drug-free sport is not worth having. Human rights should always trump the WADA's practical problems.

The WADA recognizes no higher authority who might reprimand them, but the national associations are subject to national laws, and national governments should prohibit them from enforcing WADA protocols and judgments.

Not to mention how completely ineffective they have been.

An organization in any other sphere with this kind of track record would have been disbanded years ago.
