    Bill Cosby - Rapist, or Victim ???

    Rape allegations won't go away for Bill Cosby - CNN.com

    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.

    I think it's highly possible.

    With public figures, I frequently remain skeptical of scandalous charges.

    But there's been multiple claims made over many years.

    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.

    I don't deny the possibility of his actions any more than I believe they are true. I remain skeptical either way.

    Is it possible? I'm sure it is given the neigh infinite possibilities out there. Did it happen? No one knows.

    So in the first woman's case. "I was raped several time...I think." " Kept waking up naked and feeling woozy".

    "Thought it was part of the process"

    If she felt like she was getting raped, why come back?

    Of course it's possible. Anything's possible. However, my gut tells me no, he didn't rape these women.
