    These women don't have much to gain anymore over making the claims. They obviously don't have any proof.

    Sometimes when the boy cries wolf, there's actually a wolf.
    Or when multiple girls or boys allege the same wolf.

    I think it's extremely possible. I read somewhere that there were 14 different accusations of rape.

    If it's true, some Republicans are going to have to find a new old black man to use when making generalized statements about young black people. If Morgan Freeman is too expensive, I hear Billy Dee Williams is out of work these days. Oh look... some are already defending him:

    “And I asked myself, what did Bill Cosby ever do to tick off some producer at CNN? Or some reporter? Or some assignment? What happened here?”
    It's the media, people. The media is at fault here and time is not important when it comes to being a rapist. Brought to you by the guy who did enough painkillers to give Charlie Sheen a dizzy spell.

    What are your thoughts on Cosby?


    Do you think it's possible that he's guilty of raping women?

    Or is he a victim of false allegations?

    Now I know there's the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing - but I'm asking what your gut feel is regarding this stuff.
    Cosby isn't one of my favorite people.

    But, OTOH: anyone who has a lot of cash is likely to be the target of accusations like this sooner or later.

    Like anyone, the man is innocent until proven guilty.

    Or because they won't take no for an answer. This is why ppl are so shocked bc he doesn't come off that way. He's always had that gentle grandpa essence about him.

    Innocent until proven otherwise, that is my position. And as this case has not been tried in court he is for me innocent of the crime. If at a court case irrefutable evidence is presented that proves he is not innocent then he is guilty and has to suffer the consequence (that means a good stretch of time behind bars).
    If his own campaign does not trust him with a twitter account, how can anyone trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes?

    Re; your quote in parenthesis. He's mid 70's so it wouldn't even be a stretch of time.

    He could be alive for another 10 or 15 years. And even if he were to die after 5 years of jail, for the amount of time he had left on this earth, that is a stretch of time.

    Those who doubt the accusers' claims, have you listened to them?
