Bill Cosby rape trial ends in a hung jury...

From CNN

The prosecutor has said he will re-try the case.

I'm not surprised. They barred most of the victims from testifying on previous bad acts.
The damage is done though. He will always be known as Pill Bill.

Our justice system at its finest...always working for the rich and famous, guilty or innocent, and never for the poor or middle class black person.

good. the only thing COS IS GUILTY OF WAS CHEATING ON HIS WIFE.

FROM WHAT i READ ABOUT THE CASE AND WITNESS, Cosby did drugged anyone. He offered drugs to those women and they took them.. those were party drugs.

Good the circus atmosphere was akin to the Roman coliseum spectacles. Rape, victim, force. White women repeat the same shit generation after generation.


Kinda like the reality show scandal going on now.

The trial wasn't about convicting him, it was about destroying his character. He lost before he entered the courtroom.

Not a Cosby fan at all in fact i detest the man but let's not pretend that 95% of the rich, power, high profile men of his generation weren't getting up to the same thing. All of them were doing it in those days, with that level power who do you answer to?
He comes from a generation of men that believed women don't have too much going on up top and therefore should leave the thinking and opinions to them, keep their mouths shut and do as their told; open their legs when required and bring up the children.

All of them treated these naive wannabe starlets as prey, easy meat not just him. Surely you're all familiar with the infamous 'casting couch' phrase.
He attended orgies at the Playboy Mansion where its been well-documented girls as young as 14 were an ever-present, which Hollywood actor at the time didn't?
Back then men were all about exuding masculinity especially towards women.

My point is if you're gonna go after Bill Cosby, then go after all the Hollywood actors from his generation still alive today, all the directors, Hugh Hefner etc. You only have to look no further than two presidents - one incumbent and the husband of the woman who ran against the incumbent – a ton of women have levelled accusations at both.
What he's accused of is beyond the pale but why are they so determined to take HIM down? You will hear about all the misdeeds of the others long after they've died.

I heard about Cosby drugging & raping women FOR YEARS. I was just surprised it never came out sooner (until Hannibal Burress stand-up routine). A couple of the women did report it when it happened but no one believed them & Cosby had money. I'm like R. Cosby will be known as "Pill Bill'. It's coming back on him one way or another

We make it too easy for the White Man to "Get us". It is us that need to clue & smarten up & not be so dumb. We play right in there hands (like sleeping with a lot of women). Should've stayed faithful to His wife. Wouldnt have had nothing on him if he did. God don't recognize " understandings" & a wife looking the other way

His wife seems down with it so to me it wasn't a real marriage anyway. Bet she aint slept with bill since the 70s.

I dunno. Any time people don't file police reports immediately but continue to come around and be cool but then later ask for a settlement, no matter what the allegations and no matter who they are against, I think they probably lying.

This case is going to be hard to retrial. There's way too many opinions on the matter. Way too many tainted jurors and it's too publicized to pick a fair jury. On top of that, they brought one of the weakest victims as the one to be front and center. She settled out of court once before sooooo if I'm a juror, I'm thinking "how is this even a case again"? lol The other women can't file law suits because their cases are too weak or way pass the statue of limitations. This is one of the most bizarre cases.

Delighted for Mr. Cosby and his family.

One of the reasons they didn't let some of the victims testify is because the testimonies would require them to reveal places, other people, such as Hugh Hefner, the doctor who handed out the Quaaludes and others. Too many celebs and politicians are tied to this story. It is also one of the reason Bill Cosby did not speak at the trial.

This big nose permanent side eye sick fuck why did he have to drug and rape women when clearly for a few thousand he could get the pussy with no problem. I bet his wife have not slept with him since the 80's. Well another negro that had a great career but the legacy will be The Grim Raper.

I hear he's out of jail on a one million dollar bail. The party isn't over for this (alleged) pervert yet.
