I’m going to take the unpopular position of disagreeing with the guilty verdict of Bill Cosby. Cosby was on trial for 1 act of sexual assault, yet they let 5 unrelated women testify who had nothing to do with what Cosby was charged with. And the woman who did charge him was paid 3 million dollars already.

For the other 5 women they are now famous and making a lot of money off this Cosby fame.

There’s no doubt that Cosby is into a lot of weird sex and drugs. I personally have had sex with a lot of women while stoned. But Pot isn’t that big of a deal and I’m not famous, nor do I have millions of dollars. But for people like Cosby the is surrounded by opportunists who would have sex with him to advance their careers, and I’m sure Cosby took advantage of relationships that are sort of mutual exploitation where both people get what they want.

In a criminal trial the standard of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt”, and in my view when the witnesses have a strong financial incentive to lie then that is reasonable doubt right there. I’m not saying I believe Cosby is innocent, or guilty. I’m just saying that if I were a juror, I wouldn’t be able to convict.

I am also predicting this case will be overturned on appeal because I think the testimony of 5 unrelated women is unconstitutional, and the appeals court will strike down the case on that basis. And the jury asked for a definition of sexual assault and the judge didn’t give them a legal definition. So I don’t think you’re going to see Cosby doing jail time.

    Time in a cage, no. But guilty of being a hypocritical sex fiend and rapist, oh yeah. Beep him at home on a leash.

    The statute of limitations on anything except murder and fleeing a jurisdiction to avoid prosecution should be 10 years.

    I don’t care if he is guilty of it. And I think he is.

    Allegations from 30 and 40 years ago is an insult to the criminal justice system.

    yeah exactly, no physical evidence . Very very old accusations from people who stand to benefit financially .
    I have no doubts that he did it . But the verdict is still wrong
