True so true. I think the internet wasn't around (as we know it) back then.

 

Honest to goodness, I'm a bit bummed out by all of this. Bill and I are from the same city and we even went to the same university(not at the same time of course). He is one of our favorite natives around here.

There were some. I think one woman just wasn't believed, and the other allegation with a woman who actually had something like ~14 witnesses willing to testify was settled out of court.

 

It's a shame.

you never really know somebody unless you know somebody.

 

I wouldn't believe these allegations if there weren't so many of them with such striking consistency.

These allegations happened soooooo long ago.

 

Now what?

 

What's a possible end game?

given the statute of limitations, there's no endgame, but there doesn't have to be.

 

these women just want the truth to be out there.

most of them were unable to come forward when it happened. they're not expecting a payday or celebrity status, they're just telling the story.

I don't. Multiple women, same MO. Only a fool would think he's innocent of these crimes.

This blew up because of a bit by stand-up comedian Hannibal Burress. The bit when viral, and now the allegations are in the press again. These women have been open about their experiences for years.

One of the women did go to the police. They didn't take it seriously. (as they are want to do)

safety in numbers.

 

no one would have believed these women during the 60's and 70's.

at least one of them tried to come forward more than once and was essentially ignored.

 

you also have to place yourself in the woman's shoes.

they were young actresses who were aspiring to become something greater and Bill Cosby was an extremely powerful man in an extremely male-dominated world. do you want to be known as the girl who was raped by Bill Cosby? it would have ruined their lives and their careers before they ever got started.

 

the world is unforgiving to rape victims even nowadays.

you think they had a chance back then?

Correct it was back in 2004 i believe and it was one of the same women who came forward this time too.

 

The reason that case went away before Cosby was arrested was because he settled out of court, The woman attorney had 7 women lined up to testify against Cosby in court and those are the same women who have come forward this time around

Yup and folks would have believed Cosby over them any day of the week so if they tried to say something while trying to make it in Hollywood he would have made it so they wouldn't even get a spot in a backyard play put on by kids.

Something always felt off about Cosby to me. i mean i never watched the Cosby Show, but saw some of his standup's. always made me cringe for some reason. i actually couldnt keep watching for too long. he was funny, but something about him felt gross to me. not surprised about those allegations personally.

 

Gotta love the people on the internet who are defending him and going into this race stuff.

I've enjoyed his work and that won't change even if he's found guilty of these crimes. As of now I'm taking the innocent until proven guilty viewpoint.

Up until recently, I actually thought Bill Cosby was dead :O

then you'll be sitting on that fence for the rest of your days.

 

the statute of limitations has passed.

these cases will not go to trial.

 

but if you honestly believe that 14 different women would just lie about being raped by a famous actor, you're insane.

By saying I believed in the concept of innocent until proven guilty I neglected to take into account that by saying that I implicated that those women are liars. To be honest, I don't even know what I believe in that regard because I see it as a game of he said, she said. But even then, I haven't educated myself with the full details of this case so I'm not even sure that opinion is valid. For these reasons, I'm willing to admit I was out of line by participating in this discussion.

We should all take that view point out whole justice system was built on "Innocent Until Proven Guilty In a Court Of Law" sadly many people have reversed it so now it's "Guilty Until Proven Innocent"

See i had the same view but than as more and more women came forward and they all had the same story and had never met each other before makes it a lot easlier to believe them but he is innocent until proven guilty and i honestly do hope he didn't do this because if it's true than he may never recover from this and will spend the rest of his days trying to avoid the spotlight.

Well even though the Statue Of Limitation on Criminal Charges has passed he could still be found "Guilty" of any of these women file lawsuits against him a Judge/Jury can find him "Guilty" on the charges they will be Civil charges linked to a Civil suit again him and even though it won't be a criminal guilty verdict it can be just as damaging.

I brought this point up in the questions topic, isn't it a bit odd that out of nowhere, all these wen are coming forward accusing Cosby of raping them? Are they telling the truth? Possibly. Are they making up the allegations for fame and fortune? It seems a bit fishy if you asked me. Like I said before:

 

"Bill Cosby raped me. Give me money and put me on TV."

I have some skepitcal on some of the women but not all of them but of course there are always going to be a few who are lying mixed in with those who aren't....

 

There was a case here in my town my former doctor was asccused of Sexual Assault of several female patients but she was found not guilty because there were a few who claimed to have been assaulted by him when they weren't and his lawyer proved it but there was prove that he did assault others but those woman created reasonable doubt and because of that the ones he did rape didn't get the justice they deserved.

 

But how you would explain Angie Dickersonn who has also come forward and she claims that Bill Cosby raped her and i'm inclined to believe her because she doesn't need Money or Fame from this so what motive does She have for lying?

The thing is, these women aren't just some nobody bimbos, they were supermodels, female athletes, actresses or whatever... They don't have a real reason to lie. They have money and they had fame... I really doubt that like, what, 8 or so different girls would lie about the same thing, with all the same consistency...C'mon now...

Don't be so naive...

Similar accusations have been proven true, such as the infamous Jimmy Savile scandal over here. His acts of sexual abuse weren't exposed until after his death when dozens testified.

I never thought Bill Cosby was funny, and these allegations have been happening for like a decade and sh*t is just hitting the fan? weird. I like how he talks about how young guys should treat women, when he's done this kind of sh*t. (let's face it, some of these have to be true).

In cases of Sexual Assault girls often feel shame and don't want others to know what happened even though it wasn't their fault and with the case of Bill Cosby who was the most popular actor at the time and these girls were just starting out in their carrer probably though that nobody would believe them so they never came forward at the time.

I mean we aren't talking about an A List movie star, he had a very popular TV show and did some other sh*t, he's not the 80s equivalent of George Clooney...
