Bill Cosby convicted of drugging and molesting a woman

Cosby, 80, could end up spending his final years in prison after a jury concluded he sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He claimed the encounter was consensual.
I always enjoyed this guy on TV. Too bad it went this way.

He was a good role model for a long time. I think he did a lot for black folks, and did far more for race relations than Jesse or Al, or anyone else for that matter.

I was talking to a friend today abut how all these women went after Bill Cosby for alleged wrongdoing years ago. I asked, "If he did that to them back then, why did they wait until now to bring up their allegations?" Her answer nailed it IMO: "They couldn't get the money back then that they can get now."

I am a little short on words for this.

On one side, he provided some direction for some kids, and on the other side, he was violating women.

That's just really screwed up.

I'm really torn and saddened by this. Growing up, we had some of his albums of his comedy routines. They were some of the funniest bits I had ever heard. They were clean, appropriate and very funny. He was able to paint a picture in a way that people could relate to regardless of race.

I am heartbroken that he has been reduced to this. If he is in fact truly guilty of these acts, I have lost almost all respect for him. However, it does not change the fact that he was able to make millions of people laugh at things that happen in everyday life.

That's the conundrum...His actions were disgusting, but his words were intelligent and witty...

I have an opinion contrary to most I have seen on this site. Supposedly he has been doing this stuff for years , but it only came out recently. I believe this is because he stepped off the Democrat plantation several years ago and started talking about "personal responsibility" rather than promoting "victimhood" for blacks. So the left decided to stick it to him.



Furthermore the first trial ended in a hung jury because it was a he said/she said accusation. Then they drudged up women that took Quaaludes with him in the 1980's. They used this to establish a pattern of him being a sexual predator when all they established was the fact that he did drugs and had sex. Lots of people including women were voluntarily taking Quaaludes in the 1980's and having sloppy sex. He didn't force or trick anyone into taking the Quaaludes.



The Bottom line is he got hosed because he stepped off the "Democrat plantation" even though he didn't deviate from the "victimhood"line all that much. They made an example of him to prevent others contradicting the party line.



They did something similar, but less drastic, to Cory Booker several years ago when he was still mayor of Newark. He made some comments that deviated from the "victimhood" message. The DNC told him he better rescind those comments and get back in line if he wanted support for any political career past Newark mayor. He did.

These types of rants are profoundly disturbing.
Your thinking on the matter has nothing to do with the actual molestation / rape that occurred.
Cause you gotta think of your political enemies as oppressors...

What's slightly interesting is that it's the same type of mind-set which proclaimed that O.J. Simpson was a victim of a corrupt police force. It's the mentality that feeds the likes of Jesse Jackson and people of that nature.
You're just doing the same routine on the other side of the fence...
