Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

Latest poop is one of the regulars on Cosby show complained that Bill was way too gropey to producers, who then told her just don't be in a room alone with him and suck it up.

I'm going with Lisa Bonet because A: she eventually left the show and will not be in the company of Bill to this day and B: she the whitest.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

Mr Cosby does, of course, have legal redress if he has been libelled. He can certainly afford to litigate if he wishes to demonstrate that the accusations are false.

He spent a lot of time at the Playboy Mansion in those days, too.

Im surprised you havent heard that many people dont take jury decisions as 100% accurate, particularly in cases where rich celebrities are the defendant.

Cosby was so ****ing self-righteous too, gonna teach us all how to raise kids and live. Those last few seasons of Cosby Show were like a sociology class, so ****ing smug.

Except that statutes of limitation are clearly not dumb. Sure, they operate to prohibit meritorious claims (as appears to be the case here) but they also prevent all kinds of false claims from being brought forward.

There's a reason why people going to bat for accused rapists always cite the Duke Lacrosse case.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

no statutes of limitation on 1st degree rape in some states. still no way he'd ever get charged with no physical evidence to support the allegations of rape and drugging.

People like you and your ilk would have gladly railroaded those Duke kids without blinking or losing sleep, just on general principles.

That's why they need to get cracking on lie detector technology.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

People in the US love to take isolated incidents and turn them into huge rallying points.

OMG Chick-Fil-a guy sent something religious he believes in, I'm never gonna eat there again.
OMG Jimmy Johns guy hunts, Im never gonna eat there again.
OMG some fuzzy little foreigner taxi guy bitched out girl for cancelling a ride, I'm never gonna ride Uber again.

GTFO People

Bill Cosby has been spoiled most of his life. It wouldn't surprise me if he truly believes he did nothing wrong.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

dont worry, they can already stick you in an fMRI machine and tell when you are lying. There will come a time in the future when all they have to do is stick some censors on your head and will know with 100% accuracy whether you are telling what you believe to be the truth.

Note of course Alex completely flips the racial aspect of this, Cosby is getting support from Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and kioshk and ****.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

That is an ugly vision of the future, Alobar, although I think you're largely correct. I think it might ultimately be possible to detect a mental image, memory, or thought in the same way.
