Just remember a brush on the shoulder could totes be sexual assault. Liberals. Millennials. Dummies. Just remember that's why Mr. Huxtable got charged.

This quote sums it up really:

"This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today," Wyatt said. "And they need to know what they're facing -- when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things they shouldn't be doing."


Lets help people break the law and treat women like shit.

Cosby has a point. Almost anything can be viewed as sexual assault. A brush on the shoulder, drugging women and then raping them while they're incapacitated, almost anything.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/22/us/bill-cosby-jury/index.html

Quote:
One juror told ABC News on Wednesday that ten of the 12 jurors voted to convict Cosby on two counts of aggravated indecent assault, but two people on the panel continued to hold out, leading to a deadlocked jury and a mistrial.


On the lawyer...
Quote:
Insider Brian McMonagle, a revered local criminal lawyer whose past clients include mobsters, rappers, athletes and — in a case with some parallels to Cosby’s — the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Philadelphia during the searing priest-pedophile scandal.



I hope they retry it and allow more women to testify this time. The judge only allowed one to testify this trial.

On the other hand, he's become popular with right-wingers.

Lots of interesting tidbits including the fact that one of the women was gay and in a lesbian relationship at the time of the alleged relationship with cosby which made the sex not rape.

Don't know... innocent til proven guilty to me but this entire thing stinks to me.

I love how Cosby, through his spokesman, can still be a smug, moralizing shit while awaiting his re-trial for rape.

Figure the odds. This was in the news today too.

Prosecutor claims its in the best interest of the victims to let rapist off the hook. No mention of Bill Clinton visiting child rape island numerous times, and how connections to the former President and known serial rapist Clinton might have affected the case.


Let me get this straight.

Trump's federal government is cutting a deal to help bill clinton?

Checking snopes- I find one reference rated false and that's it.

Got any non-truthy citations for your allegations?

If so post them in a new thread. About bill clinton. Not in a thread about Cosby.

No mention that said US Attorney who actually made the decision to let the rapist off the hook and crafted the secret no prosecution plea back in 2007 (which didn't come to light until 2016) is current Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta?

your big beef about a controversy that you have never heard of until today, is that some prosecutor from 10 years ago who didn't prosecute a big democrat donor is now at labor?

That was your beef, dumbass. The prosecutor who "thought it was in the best interest of the victim to let the rapist off the hook".

Not to mention there's evidence that Trump, also an Epstein associate, was well aware of Epstein's predilections (one of his girls even came from Mar-a-Lago). And it would have been awkward for him if Epstein went to trial, lots of bad publicity. But sure, let's worry about a guy who was eight years out of power even at the time (and a disgraced comedian) rather than two people who currently occupy positions of power.

From the article:
Quote:
While Villafana said she didn’t believe her, she also understood the young woman’s suffering. Further, she knew she couldn’t force her or Epstein’s more than two dozen other victims to testify against him.
Jane Doe 1, who is also suing the government, agreed to testify. But Villafana said one victim wouldn’t have been enough to convict Epstein.


Jane Doe 2 wrote in an affidavit that Epstein was a great guy and never did anything to her during their "sexually-charged" massages. Really sounds like a filthy rich perv paying off girls to not testify against him.

The connection with the Cosby case escapes me....

As to the OP, well, dunno. There is no room for sexual intimidation or harassment, much less rape, in the world. However, in an attempt to address the issue, maybe some H&R departments and governments have been a bit too zealous. Then again, there are a lot of people I might think of as being "overly-sensitive" to such activities. Not an easy deal to figure it out.

But having Cosby give lectures on sexual harassment is like having Charles Manson discuss the hidden meanings of Beatles' songs.

Is your point that rape is worth it, especially if you're rich and powerful, because you can get off?

Clinton should be in jail, along with other serial predators, Cosby, Epstein and Trump.

Who doesn't think Bill Clinton is at least a creep?

I don't know anyone on the "partisan left" who is particularly fond of the Clintons.

But good job derailing the thread. Democrats are the real rapists, I guess.

Philanderer- sure.

All the other crap? Hard to believe republican smear job.

Let's have the republicans smearing you for 25 years and see what people think at the end of that time.

I know republicans hate him because he was effective.

I guess Koldfoot was equating "partisan left" with Democrats.

No, of course they, including Democrat-leaning centrists, won't have many issues with the Clintons.

But there is plenty of left-wing criticism of the Clintons. Here are a few links that resulted of a quick search:
https://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/8/29/1416770/-No-Bill-Cl...
http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/6/11/bill-clinton...

https://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/3/5/1496408/-A-Helpful-G...
https://newrepublic.com/article/137862/feminists-shouldnt-tr...
https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/08/the-silencing...

The following are my main personal points of criticism.

Bill Clinton:
- Bombing the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical plant on shaky evidence, allegedly to distract from his scanadal, indirectly causing the estimated deaths of 100,000 people due to lack of medicine.
- Repeal of Glass-Steagall, thereby paving the way to the 2007-2008 financial crisis and resulting global recession.
- Signing into law the 1994 crime bill, which furthered mass incarceration.
(Of course the last two were passed by Congress, but they are primary examples of decidedly non-leftist legislation enacted under the Clinton presidency.)

Hillary Clinton:
- Support for war as senator and secretary of state.
- Pay for play foundation and general willingness to have donors determine her policy decisions.
- Leaked Wall Street speech of her admitting that she must publicly pretend to hold progressive positions, while privately holding the opposite, like a willingness to raise the Social Security retirement age.

Her failure as a candidate was that unlike her husband or Donald Trump, she can't as easily in public perception get away with being a notorious liar and having no political convictions.
