    Well now Janis Dickenson is on the band wagon. So it all must be true.

    I saw that. She says it happened in 1982 or something. And says "Of course I didn't report it".

    I could be wrong, but wasn't 1982 at the height of her out of control drug and alcohol use when she was hanging out at Studio 54 doing lines of cocaine like there was no tomorrow?

    Janice is always desperately trying to stay relevant. She needs to pay for her plastic surgery so she stops looking her age.

    Sorry Janice, my coffee table has more credibility than you do.

    I don't even know who Janis Dickenson is.
    A number of rapes are never reported. It is too embarassing and often a tough one to prove so a lot of women rather not go through the process.
    If all these accusations are truthful then he would be a serial rapist. I am waiting to hear from any of the young female actesses on his show come forth to support him or have accusations themselves.

    3. Because of the private nature of sexual activity, it can often come down to his word against hers. Where there are no witnesses, equally credible claims cancel each other out.

    Although probably not admissible in a trial, the best evidence the accuser is being truthful is multiple accusers all saying the same thing. This is especially true if they're sharing details other accusers had no way of knowing such as the reports that Michael Jackson called alcoholic beverages "Jesus Juice" to more than one accuser, information that was initially sealed when a subsequent accuser was deposed.

    As someone who thinks Bill Cosby is an American hero, this news is very, very difficult for me to process. Do I think he's guilty? I don't know but I have to give weight to the high number of claims especially considering I'd expect nothing but admiration and accolades from anyone who had the privilege of meeting him, not that he's a monster.
    Even if it's true, it makes him more of a sick person than a monster. And if it's true, the statute of limitations has ran out on those accusations from long go, unless something newer pops up. Being famous doesn't insulate someone from having the same problems that less fortunate people have. He's an almost 80yr old man now, though I hope the accusations are false he could've been twisted and hid it from everyone.

    Janice Dickinson was a model in the 70s to early 80s. She was famous for her severe drug and alcohol addiction, and she was always photographed hanging around Studio 54 among other place. Snorted all her supermodel earnings away, had some failed marriages. Recently she was Celebrity Rehab. She also said her father was a pedophile.

    Many hosts have cancelled his guests appearance. I don't think that's right. While I think he's guilty of 'something', allegations are not convictions!

    Well if she was doing drugs and being promiscuous, of course rape is impossible.

    I just had the thought that with these kind of things, the answer to the thread title question may be....neither.

    Re: Bill Cosby - Rapist, or Victim ???

    Here’s a transcript of a portion of Cosby’s stand up routine:

    When I was 13, man. Start talking about weird things. No, really. Standing on the corner: You know anything about Spanish Fly. What? Spanish Fly. It always happens when you’re 13, only when you’re 13 on up to when, like, you get married. Guys stand around talking about Spanish Fly … You know anything about Spanish Fly? No, tell me about it. Well, there’s this girl—Crazy Mary—you put some in her drink, man … ahhhhhh … yeah, Spanish … Oh, that’s really groovy man. Spanish Fly is groovy. Yeah boy. From then on, man, any time you see a girl: Wish you had some Spanish Fly boy. Go to a party, see five girls standing alone—boy, if I had a whole jug of Spanish Fly I’d light that corner up over there.[/QUOTE]
