Bill Cosby is guiltier than sin. Even if a jury could not unanimously agree on that.
Sure, we can criticize the women for taking up with Cosby but I’m not going to blame the victims of a con man.
Cosby was the most trusted Negro in America. Who would have imagined that he was a psychopath, practicing what amounts to necrophilia–sex with the dead.
When you drug a woman to have sex with her motionless body, is that much different from sex with a dead woman?
Cosby performed his sexual acts over and over again. It wasn’t a one time sexual experiment. It was a sexual preference.
The cast and crew of his TV show knew what he was doing, but kept silent to keep the cash flowing in along with the fame. They witnessed his lackeys bringing women to his dressing room, where they would emerge hours later.
His wife, Camille, pictured above bald, was also one of his enablers. Really, like the others she was his partner in crime.
Cosby must have had a good laugh at how he had white people fooled. The hypocrite advised blacks to clean up their act. The nerve.
In spite of the setback offered by the mistrial, prosecutors say they will put him on trial again. Good for them. And good for the black jurors who voted guilty.
Excerpt from the New York Times
It started with a comedy routine. Hannibal Buress was doing a stand-up set in Philadelphia in 2014 in which he excoriated Bill Cosby, alleging that he was a hypocrite for criticizing the lifestyle of African-Americans despite having been accused of sexual assault.
“He gets on TV — ‘Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’” Mr. Buress said. “Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so, kind of brings you down a couple notches.”
After the routine went viral, dozens of women publicly accused Mr. Cosby of sexual assault. Now, a prosecution of Mr. Cosby based on the allegations of one of his accusers, Andrea Constand, has ended in a deadlocked jury, prompting the judge to declare a mistrial. This has left people who have been watching the high-profile criminal case in limbo, including Mr. Cosby’s close friends and supporters, some of whom defended him to the very end. Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on “The Cosby Show,” for example, arrived at the start of the trial arm in arm with Mr. Cosby.
As of 6 p.m. Eastern time, Ms. Pulliam had not noted the mistrial on Twitter. Neither had Mr. Buress. But here are some of the reactions of those closely connected with Mr. Cosby, as well as those from others around the globe.
Mr. Cosby’s wife released a biting statement, which was also posted on Mr. Cosby’s Twitter account.
“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life.
Historically, people have challenged injustices. I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision … ultimately, that is a manifestation of justice, based on facts, not lies. As a very special friend once stated, ‘truth can be subdued, but not destroyed.’
Moreover, I express humongous gratitude to counselors Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa for their hard work. Mr. McMonagle for his passionate and powerful articulations of truths; Ms. Agrusa for her thorough research to bolster Counsel McMonagle; to Mr. Andrew Wyatt for his unequivocal skills in public relations; to our team, who worked diligently and intelligently; to our staffs for their continuous commitment to our family and me … and to our children, grandchildren, and other family who loves us … and to our dear friends and supporters, who never gave up on us, despite it all.”
Camille Cosby is garbage. She may not stink as bad as her husband, but the smell is still overwhelming.
And a second reaction, among many:
