Title: Bill Crosby found guilty
Post by: Nancy5 on April 26, 2018, 11:34:41 am
He is found guilty on all 3 counts.  Looking at a possible jail term of 10 years on each count for a total of 30 years.  Your thoughts?

its a toss up.  so many women make false claims about celebrities raping them or sexually abusing them.  its hard to believe. on the other hand many women are raped or sexually abused and no one believes them. I don't know what to think.  30 years in jail hes up there in years so if that is the correct sentence he will be dead in jail. if I'm not mistaken hes in his late 80's.  our justice system is so bad in many cases lately the guilty go free and the innocent get no justice.

How on earth would you know that "so many women" make false claims? It's women like you who give women a bad name.

In my experience, yes, there are a few here and there who make false claims. However, that is not the usual case.

If a woman claims she was raped, chances are, she was. Men in show business have been getting away with this crap for years.

Stop trying to be a member of the boy's club.

I have mixed feelings about it. Why have all of these women waited years before coming forth? Seems like when 1 women  says something the  more jump on the band wagon. Not with just him but many other men in the public eye. And  I also wonder if all of it is true. Guess it depends on a jury.  Poor man will die in prison. And for what to make a few women rich.  I would be ashamed of putting myself in the position  in the first place. I  have also taken care of a man trying to be sexual to me. Knocked him down and kicked him. And all he did was keep touching me when and where I did not want him too. Lost my job but  taught him a lesson. And there was a darn thing he could do about it. But he steered clear of me  from then on.

Are you kidding? Some of these women DID say something. However, when you work in an industry run by men, no one listens.

Trump being a misogynistic basshat has a lot to do with it. Women no longer feel safe in a country run by a man who behaves like an eternal fratboy.

I have no mixed feelings about it. As I said, men have been getting away with this for years, and it's about time that women feel comfortable enough to do something.

It cannot be easy standing up, and knowing that people like YOU are going to doubt them.

For every "one" who is "jumping on the bandwagon," there are ten who are telling the truth.

Nope, I HAVE to put my faith in other women.

I find your comment about women "putting themselves" in that position extremely offensive. It is not our place to walk on tippie toes to avoid misogynists and rapists.

You got lucky. You could just have easily lost that fight.

You and Katie really should never speak in public. And beware of karma, one day, you are going to know someone in that situation. Let's see how you feel then.

The 50s are calling, go back to the kitchen where belong with that mentality.

There were way too many women.  And he admitted drugging them.  To him it was no big deal...that's what you did back then.  I loved him when he was on tv.  And his standup.  Disappointed wouldn't begin to describe how I feel about this scum.

I always say you want to play you gotta pay. Sad this happened to all those women. Too bad he was not caught at an earlier age so he could pay longer. I would have never thought this of him. One just never knows what is going on behind closed doors.

I'm not surprised he was found guilty because he did some bad things however, ALL those women?? Nope. Some of those women are lying. It's all about money too and justice. :neutral: :moneymouth:

Cosby's attorneys are already stating that they will appeal the decision. This will play around in the courts for another five years, at least. And every time it goes back to court, those that have suffered will have to replay the horrible incident in their minds. Money will keep him out of jail till he dies. The same thing will happen with the president who has many more female accusers and more substantial evidence supporting the claims. We have a friend who's sister was raped to death in the military by a male soldier that admitted to doing it through his first several court appearances. He then decided he wanted to live so he started changing his story, pushed for different court venues, claimed mental illness and has been doing this for over thirty years. Avery three years the family, at their own cost, has to go testify and relive their loved one's death.

Hello! :D :)

I'm skeptical all these men all of a sudden are being punished much later after the crime. Why not earlier why now? I don't know whether Bill Crosby is guilty I just question these women credibility. He is paying for something he did so long time ago it doesn't make sense. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

Thank god.  I was losing faith in the justice system.  I was mad because rich people always get away with cheating the legal system.  Not this time!  If you don't think Cosby wasn't guilty you are on drugs lol. Just watch any of his interviews talking about the allegations!

Good.  I always thought he was guilty.  He need to pay every last one of those women.

It's hard to say if Bill Cosby did the crime. That's between him and the accusers.  But we all know OJ Simpson should have been found guilty of murder back in 1995 and he got away with it. It also does not surprise me he's a free man again.

I agree with VickySue and I agree with fillfran82, now when are they going to but 45 on trial?  I am a women and I don't care who you are, if you are rape report it right away, but these women was trying to get into TV, movie etc. and because he was a black man they would have  put him underneath the jail.  Come on women you knew what was going on.  I pray he does get an appeal.  Different strokes for different folks.  I'm just saying!!

Disappointed in the Cos. He was one of the best Stand Up comics of all time. But he did the crime, he should do the time.

I don't understand why, now that Cosby so old all of a sudden women are coming out of the woodwork to accuse him crimes from the past! The man's so old he'd die shortly after being jailed!

I agree these celebrities think that they can get away with anything. So I think its good that he's going to jail for his crime
Title: Re: Bill Crosby found guilty
Post by: brian8713 on May 01, 2018, 02:00:31 pm
I personally was shocked he was found guilty. Not because I think he's innocent, but because these celebrities keep getting out of their crimes time after time. It's disgusting. But let's review the facts: How many women claim he drugged and raped them? He's admitted to using a drug on a woman. And the woman he was convicted of raping is a lesbian. I don't think Bill Cosby would be her "type."

The only pause I have is that he's 80 years old and I'm sure has a health problem or two. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't serve a day in jail, though he totally deserves it.

I see that he has to wear a GPS ankle bracelet and can only leave his home for medical attention and legal purposes.  Maybe this will open other eyes and they will realize you cannot get away with this behavior

Post by: mrisha on May 01, 2018, 08:49:08 pm
Not sure how that will pan out.  So many of the women have admitted that they lied, so with him being found guilty, how many women actually lied after waiting for 30-40 years to tell their story?  There is more to come I am sure.

I do not believe 80 percent of the women who accused him.  They all jumped on the bandwagon to get money since he is so old and might not live long.

Just another man who thought he was too good to be found guilty, he should pull time in a real prison, not one of these spas they will probably send him to

He needs to serve the time that everyone else in this cruel world would have to serve. That is what is wrong with this world. The justice system let's a lot of rich people and those who are celebrities get away with murder. :o

"Poor" man?!  I think not.  He was definitely a sexual predator. He used money, power, position, and drugs to intimidate, sometimes in an era where women were not believed and/or such issues were swept under the rug. (Same as today in some cases.  And what is surprising, it is sometimes women who are not supporting their own sex.) Where there is smoke, there is fire.  Too many women came forward with stories.  I don't know how his wife can stay under the same roof with him.

If he's guilty, he needs to serve his time no matter what the age.  He said he drugged women so can anyone explain why he did that.  Just because it wasn't reported doesn't mean it didn't happen. 
Title: Re: Bill Crosby found guilty
Post by: braggin on May 04, 2018, 05:51:28 am
I have no mixed feelings about this one. Bill Cosby himself stated in his deposition that he was drugging women before having sex with them plus so many other women came forward and said the same thing.

He is not going to go to jail.  Wait and see.

I don't know what to think.  Every man alive is being accused of sexual something these days.  I don't think he raped anybody.  All these women wanted to do whatever with him to further their career.  They used him as much as he did them.  This all happened 20 plus years ago.  I don't think you should be able to come up and accuse a man of rape that supposedly happened 20 years ago and then it is just your word against his.

I do know he has said some things that have came out of his mouth that surprised me and is not in the character that he has portrayed all these years.  And I also know the DVDs I had purchased of the Cosby Show are either going in the trash or I will sell in a yard sale here in a couple weeks.  Not that anybody will buy them.  I guess I will throw them away.

We can talk about it from now on but there is no way for us to know the truth.  We weren't there.
