Jury has reached a verdict in the Cosby trial [Guilty on all 3 counts]

They shouldn't IMO. Despite what Cosby was and is now, it's still a good show and even though it has his name on it, there were a lot of people involved in the show spanning several years.

I mean, they might, sure, but I don't think it's necessary.

Anyway, he's going to run right? Got to figure he knows if he goes he's dying in prison.
I wish there was a way that the profits from his work were obligated to go partially to women’s charities or at least fashioned in such a way that Bill Cosby could no longer directly benefit.

His work is a cultural treasure and we’re all lesser off with it being shut away from sight. At the same time, he should no longer have the fame, wealth, and privilege from his contributions.

I like this. Amazon should totally do something like this. Stream his show but any money exchanged goes to a women's charity of sorts.

The Juanita Broaddrick one is the most damning IIRC. It’s the most violent, and has women whom she told about the incident at the time (I forget the term for this — contemporaneous corroboraters?)

Edit: Corrected Kathleen Willey to Juanita Broaddrick
I hate how Hillary tried to explain this away. Isn’t the rape corroborated by verified, dated hotel bills/iteneraries and friends and family members she told the day it happened?

The AP reports that the current district attorney apologized to Constand for a previous decision by a previous DA to not charge Cosby: https://apnews.com/66ba264a7ec04ccf...y-convicted-of-drugging-and-molesting-a-woman

After the verdict, the district attorney became teary-eyed as he commended Constand for what he said was courage in coming forward. As Constand stood silently behind him in a bright white blazer, Steele apologized to her for a previous DA’s decision in 2005 not to charge Cosby.

Steele said Cosby “was a man who had evaded this moment for far too long.”

“He used his celebrity, he used his wealth, he used his network of supporters to help him conceal his crimes,” the district attorney said. “Now, we really know today who was really behind that act, who the real Bill Cosby was.”


Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison on each of the three counts of aggravated indecent assault. He is likely to get less than that under state sentencing guidelines, but given his age, even a modest term could mean he will die behind bars.
I totally agree with Steele's statement that Cosby "was a man who had evaded" criminal charges "for far too long" since Costand was sexually assaulted by Cosby all the way back in 2004.

Cosby should be put in jail, I hope the court rejects this appeal attempt that the AP stated that Cosby's lawyer stated there will be an appeal:

Cosby waved to the crowd outside the courthouse, got into an SUV and left without saying anything. His lawyer Tom Mesereau declared “the fight is not over” and said he will appeal.
 
It’s remarkable to think how this trial would not have happened without Hannibal Buress taking Cosby on in his comedy routine.

Brave women had already come forward, but America wasn’t paying attention. Buress made them take notice.

It’s likely that Cosby would have been one of the media titans toppled by the #MeToo movement in a world without Buress, but that would have come too late to bring Cosby to trial.

The AP reports that the current district attorney apologized to Constand for a previous decision by a previous DA to not charge Cosby: https://apnews.com/66ba264a7ec04ccf...y-convicted-of-drugging-and-molesting-a-woman
Steele essentially ran for office on a “prosecute Cosby” platform. His opponent was the DA at the time Constand first made her accusation, and declined to pursue the case. Steele raked him for it in his campaign ads.

I'm glad it's official, if only so Cosby can't escape this part of his legacy before he passes away. He raped those women, and he will not die until he realizes the world will not forget.

Are they finally pudding him away?
Ok that got me. Funny stuff.

I said "almost". There are exceptions, such as the group of idiots in that jury pool.
Anyone that states this.... did you actually look at the trail and the evidence the jury was given to deliberate on? You do know they were forced to state not guilty becasue the LAPD botched the case so beyond a doubt could not have happened. Maybe it would have been different if the LAPD wasn't trying to actively frame him and got caught so and put on record.

My (black) mom is insisting that this is just "public lynching of black people for the modern age". I just shook my head and walked away. There's solidarity with your people and then there's just being a damn rape apologist.

aww here
I used to watch this dude with my grandma, always bailing theo out some shit. And nagging the neighbor kid.

Is it wrong to say I'm glad she died before the verdict struck? Cause this would've stung a Reich era survivor stony

My first comedy album/vinyl - arguably one that got me started in standup - he talked about riding shopping carts down the hill. Down what hill, Bill. Those sloppy slopes

Good riddance. Definitely one of the scariest monsters because he on the surface appeared so kindly.

Edit: Also, holy shit ShaheedMalik was perma-banned for posting that shit topic? He's been on here (and the old place) for quite a while, correct? Shame to see a man fall like that. What a dumbass.
Who and what now?

I was surprised it wasn’t another hung jury. I still have doubts as to whether or not he’ll serve any time, but we’ll see. I feel for all the women who finally got their truths told. Its too bad it took this long.

I’ve been looking at YouTube comments through multiple videos to see how they’re taking it. And I fucking hate this planet. Who are these people that make up 90% of comments saying he shouldn’t be going to prison because there’s no “proof”. They still say that even if there is proof he shouldn’t have to go to prison for committing rape decades ago. Some people are even saying it’s the women’s fault for being around him or that they’re just after his money. I hate people.

Yes. When you rape dozens and dozens of women it becomes a "numbers game".

Have you been following this trial at all? Perhaps you should expand a bit on your post.

What? He was found guilty for just one instance of sexual assault, not all of them.

What a nonsense post.

I know this sounds a bit extreme, but at his age, anyone else think he might try to kill himself rather than go to jail? Seems stuff like this happens a lot in these situations.

I think it's more likely he would try to flee. Cosby is extremely arrogant and he has been brazenly hellbent on trying to avoid any and all responsibility and consequences for his actions (oh the irony) this entire time.

He seems like he has too much ego to kill him self. He’s probably convinced he’s going to get out of this somehow because he’s Bill Cosby and he always gets away with whatever he wants.

It is something to think about that the black celebrity rapist gets 10 years while no-one is even bringing criminal charges against, say, Weinstein. Though it's hard to see this as anything but justice served.
