Bill Cosby Charged with Felony Indecent Assault
— Ace

Good.

Here's a flashback via Yid with Lid" a former NBC employer said in 2014 the network used him as a conduit to women hush money to keep quiet about Bill Cosby's predations.

Back when Bill Cosby was the king of network television, veteran NBC employee Frank Scotti served as the royal fixer.

When Cosby invited young models into his Brooklyn dressing room, the megastar’s pal stood watch outside the door. When the married Cosby sought a Queens apartment for another pretty face, Scotti arranged the deal.

And when the man behind Fat Albert needed cash disbursed to his flock of single female friends -- hey, hey, hey -- Scotti became the conduit for payments of up to $2,000 a month.

Funny? Bill Cosby on his arraignment walk.

3 Why did they wait 11 years to charge him?  The SoL in PA for rape is 12 years which also seems kind of long.

4 I saw a picture of Cosby standing with Bill Clinton.

Not to minimize what Cosby is accused of, but it's nothing worse that what Bill did.  How come nobody in the Black Lives Matter movement are bitching about the white guy getting off scot-free, hmmm?

9 This will go badly for Bill Cosby. PA has a 12-year statute of limitations for this, unlike most state where it'd be 3 to 5 years. The accuser made a complaint after it happened eleven years ago, but authorities didn't pursue a "he said / she said" case against a Local Hero Celebrity. Like many states, PA has an exception in these kinds of cases to let in testimony about other similar cases, so it'll be ten or twenty women testifying about how Cosby drugged them and then fiddled about. No matter how the jury gets picked I don't see Cosby getting a jury nullification like the one OJ Simpson got. Cosby didn't racially discriminate with his victims, and the jury won't either. Only question is how fast this case moves.

11 Prosecutors said Cosby urged the victim to take three blue pills and drink wine before he positioned himself on top of her on a couch, fondled her and penetrated the woman. So this is another one of those 'here are some pills' 'ok sure I will take pill from you for some reason/oh noes those were bad rapey pills, I am in shock' cases?

19 It seems the evidence they're relying upon is from a sealed Cosby deposition in the civil suit. That's all they have? It sounds to me like the goal here is to try to get as much of the what sounds like a damning deposition into the public record as possible.

20 Here is the difference between boys and girls. I have only had one half of one quaalude in my life. I had thrown a party at the beginning of which I had a sort of girlfriend who would use her hand on me. Then a girl gave me the half a quaalude and I woke up having actual sex with her. She became my new girlfriend. I do not espouse reversing the genders here. Just saying that boys and girls are different.

Not even close to being a Cosby fan, but this seems to be a pretty shaky case. Lots of "he said/she said," allegations that can't be proved and questions (yes, like the proverbial "why did she wait so long?") that can't be honestly answered.

If he's actually provably guilty, I'd love to see him bundled off to the pen. But there is that pesky "innocent until proven" guilty thing that ought to protect him until a jury decides, even if he is a jerk.

34 "Like many states, PA has an exception in these kinds of cases to let in testimony about other similar cases, so it'll be ten or twenty women testifying about how Cosby drugged them and then fiddled about."

Let's just remind ourselves here that during the Lewinsky imbroglio, Bill Clinton found himself up against a federal law which similarly allows the testimony of other accusers to be brought into a sexual harassment case.

The kicker? Clinton himself had signed that bill into law, earlier on in his Presidency, as payoff to his lefty feminista allies for staunchly supporting him despite his goatish sexual behavior.

Clinton then had his attorneys argue that, well, yes, while Billy Jeff had in fact personally signed the bill in question into law, it was unfitting and unseemly for that law to be applied to the person of a sitting President. A novel legal theory that was appealed all the way to the SCOTUS, who promptly rejected it in one of those rare 9-0 verdicts. Not even the most liberal of the Justices were able to swallow what the HillBillies were trying to get down their throats.

35 Does it get knocked down to a misdemeanor if it's a decent assault? As in "OK" but not "great"?

36 I don't really get why this is "good." At best, at this point, its "neutral." Its not like this is a nazi war criminal on the run or George Soros whose entire life has been dedicated to Bond Villain-level evil. Is he guilty? I dunno, reports sure make it seem that way, but can you trust the media that hates him and the prosecutor that's trying to win a case?

I don't think that it was OK, and I'm becoming pretty convinced this 'here are some drugs baby' followed by sex was his thing. It's sleazy as hell. I'm sure he used his influence to get what he wanted. But shit. Come on, ladies. I just...none of these people could have possibly been so naïve as to not realize that he was trying to get them compliant, at the very least. Maybe one in 20 I could believe was so naïve.

I'm going to let the case play itself out before I  reach my own conclusions.



What we do know is  that  Cosby has been quite vocal recently about how the black  community is responsible for its own mess. 



Does that have anything to do with him being prosecuted now?  I  don't  know.  People who are already  judging  him don't know either.

69 If the family on the Cosby Show were militant leftists, Cosby would be feted like Roman Polanski. Whatever Cosby's politics are, he earned the wrath of the NAACP grievance industry and the show itself was anti the narrative. It - and therefore he - had to be destroyed by whatever means necessary. That does in no way exonerate Cosby for what he might have done. Just stating the obvious politics of the whole thing.

In at least one instance I can recall, one of the women said she was having drinks with Cosby and didn't know she was being drugged until she started feeling woozy and, well, drugged.  The drug use was not consensual.  The sex--or whatever Cosby allegedly did to her while she was out of it--was not consensual. That is, if the woman is telling the truth.

This is where it gets tricky.  I think Cosby's army of lawyers will have a hard time proving all of the women making these claims are lying, although it's a good bet at least one of the 20+ claimants is making a false allegation in order to claim a stake in civil litigation.   Perhaps Cosby's legal team hopes that finding and exposing one fraudulent claim will put all of the others in doubt.

91 This is where it gets tricky. I think Cosby's army of lawyers will have a hard time proving all of the women making these claims are lying, although it's a good bet at least one of the 20+ claimants is making afalse allegation in orderto claim a stake in civil litigation. Perhaps Cosby's legal team hopes that finding and exposing onefraudulent claim will put all of the others in doubt. Posted by: troyriser at December 30, 2015 03:21 PM (cCEFD) Yeah, who knows? But if any of these girls were raped they should have gone to the police. It's impossible to verify or dismiss any of their claims at this point. Cosby most likely won't win a defamation suit. But I don't know either way. As for his criminal charges? Depends whats on those transcripts from the civil suit.

92 Democrats are really coming down on people they don't like. Martin Shrekli wasn't a saint, but charging him with fraud is a stretch. Cosby's being punished not for his alleged crimes, but for his statements about blacks - this is a very long shot charge for a conviction.

101 Rape cases defy many of the basic principles of criminal law, including on the key element of intent. For many crimes, the judge or jury are asked to look inside the head of the perpetrator. If he intended to kill, it's murder. If not, the same act may only be manslaughter. With rape, judge or jury are asked to look inside the head of the victim: did she consent? Mike Tyson never heard the Pageant Winner say no, and to this day probably believes he was innocent.

102 I just don't know. Young aspiring starlets fucking an established celebrity isn't necessarily rape, even if booze or drugs were involved. It's also a story old as Hollywood. I'm not saying I like any of it, but there seems to be extraordinary effort being made to make Cosby out as a criminal.

107 "Back when Bill Cosby was the king of network television, veteran NBC employee Frank Scotti served as the royal fixer."

The depressing reality here is that Cosby could have been drugging and raping obviously underage teenage girls -- hell, could have been doing that to little children -- and the network would still have been diligently hushing things up and paying people off.

That's precisely how it worked with Jimmy Saville at the BBC.

Yep.  It's also worth noting, the "rumors"  of sexual perversity in Hollywood are vast, and  if we knew some of the  likely  truths it  would shock most of us who are not easily shocked.



If Cosby was targeted  (and possibly framed)  for his politics, we have  seen that sort of thing elsewhere in this world.  Fascist  dictatorships and  third world shitholes  tend to operate  with selective enforcement of the law, based  on whether one is in or out of favor with the powers  that be.

"beauty pageant" girl ends up the hotel room of the most famous, most dangerously violent black man in the world... and she's surprised when he expects sex? I don't remember enough about the details of that one, but I think act of taking a drug is sort of closer to consent then just going to a hotel room.

146 Y'know, I was completely tuned out of popular mainstream culture during the period when "The Cosby Show" was on TV, so it made absolutely no impression on me whatsoever. In fact, I didn't even know it existed until much later when I saw people retrospectively refer to it as some kind of mega-important show in TV history. I was like, "Bill Cosby had a TV show?" In my mind, Bill Cosby is a guy who did stand-up comedy and asked "What Is Air?" and told stories about a kid he once knew named Fat Albert. That's it. Everything he did after that was completely unknown to me, and remains so. Consequently, he plays an extremely minor role -- if any role at all -- in my imagination of what America's cultural landscape looks like. Thus, I care no more about Bill Cosby getting charged with indecent assault than I would if I learned that Buddy Hackett got a ticket for jaywalking.

Prosecutor wouldn't bring a high profile case like this if he didn't think he'd win. The Baltimore cop case is different. After the media hype, the Black prosecutor in a majority Black town was pressured to overcharge. The victim in this case made a complaint 11 years ago. As noted above, there are Cosby victims who got roofied without consent. Some of the victims are Black, which undercuts the idea of an OJ jury nullification. Prosecutor will put on the Best Victims.

170 I don't know if this has been raised in an earlier thread (it's kind of OT - actually, it's very OT) but the arsonist from that mosque burning in Texas has been caught.

He would approach you in that same way whether he was trying to sleep with you, to get a campaign contribution, or just to hang out and have a beer."

Bill Cosby is ridiculously rich, its a he said/she said case about things decades old, and the women were definitely not acting in what you'd call responsible, intelligent, and moral ways. I think they have a really tough case to fight here which is why they spent so long pumping the media with an endless string of women crying to the camera, to try to front-load the jury's perspective.

Years later, as an adult, he comes across the same scene but when he tries to help, the couple kept pushing him away. "I got the nastiest looks from those two guys!"

The response from the Ahnuld der Groppenfuhrer campaign team, when the stories started coming out about Ahnuld having come on to a stuntwoman on a movie set and not having taken "No" for an answer from her, was to brutally smear the complainant and claim that she was a multiply convicted felon attempting blackmail.

Ummmmmmm no. There was a woman who was a multiply convicted felon by that name in the Commiefornia court-docket databases, but it wasn't the complainant. I am told by SoCal accquaintances that Ahnuld ended up quietly writing a check with a lot of zeroes on it.

Posted by: zombie at December 30, 2015 03:32 PM (jBuUi) Ah. Well I'm the opposite; my parents watched Cosby Show every week and I watched with them. I think the term "TV dad" is kind of silly, but he was one of my first TV dads. The inner child part of me that loved the Huxtables was crushed when I heard the accusations. Luckily I'm an adult now, have learned that dads both real and fake can be disappointing, so you just move on with life. But it still threw me a little.

228 I can't emphasize this enough. The Huxtables are hated by leftist black activist types. They were ruining everything by showing how black people can be hip and stylish, but rich and successful and comfortable in America. How blacks can be black and yet patriotic and do well. How if you get up and work and do something with your life you can accomplish something instead of sitting around with your hand out. Guys like Jesse Jackson and Barack Hussein Obama hate the Huxtables and hate Bill Cosby. Hate.

254 Times Square is one of those experiences that I want to be able to say I did one time, but the thought of actually doing it--the people, the cold, the standing for hours--turns my stomach. Thus I keep just doing my New Years with friends in the luxury of a warm home, hah. Posted by: LizLem at December 30, 2015 03:55 PM (hvf9s) I've done it a few times. it's nowhere near as fun as it sounds. Think about trying to find a bathroom in Times Square when you can't even move. And think about how many people there are. And its all tourists, and everything is super expensive. $50 cover charges, $14 beers, etc. etc.

They've been on the lam longer than affluenza boy and mom and they were caught in Mexico.
 
PS Cosby should try the affluenza defense. Or the defense used by that UK rich muzzie, that got away with claiming he tripped and fell dick first into a woman.

259 In which I date myself. The Cosby Show was late, late Cosby. I grew up with "Bill Cosby is a very funny fellow, right?" and "Why is there Air?" as vinlyl albums. People make a big deal about Kirk kissing Uhuru, but Cosby was the first black man cast as an equal lead in I Spy with Robert Culp, and he was the sophisticate who spoke all the languages. The Bill Cosby Show '69-'71 is the earliest I can remember him. Plus the Vinyl talking about him and his brother Russell.

272 Then a girl gave me the half a quaalude and I woke up having actual sex with her. She became my new girlfriend. I do not espouse reversing the genders here. Just saying that boys and girls are different. Posted by: Bandersnatch at December 30, 2015 02:58 PM (1xUj/) I think I get your point. One of the differences between boys and girls is that boys are more likely to "want it" under many different circumstances. If a girl says she doesn't want to go all the way, she probably means it for a couple of different reasons. She doesn't want to feel like a slut. She doesn't want to get pregnant. She doesn't "love " you. She doesn't want to get an STD. It has to mean something to her more than just a good roll in the hay. Giving a girl drugs so she stops resisting is just wrong. Here's something to think about. What if a 50 year old man gave your 16 year old son a quaalude and had sex with him? And I'll bet that happens more than we think. The sad thing about Cosby, is that with all his money and fame, he should have been able to get all he wanted without drugs. I think that some celebrities get the idea that the rules don't apply to them.

276 I think every black comedian has a story of Cosby calling and hectoring them. That's actually how all this broke. Most black comedians have a story about getting "The Call" from Cosby. (Eddie Murphy had the best. He called Pryor, who said "are they laughing? are they paying you?"). So a very marginal comic named Hannibal Burress got The Call. He went on stage and said "you know, if you google 'Bill Cosby rape' you'll get more hits than if you google 'Hannibal Burress'". Then he repeated that on Howard Stern. Then people googled "Bill Cosby rape". And here we are.

That's closer to getting drunk so you can 'let go' and do what you really want to do. Or have sex with this creepy guy because maybe he can give you a part on his show/money/bragging rights...

306 I don't understand why a woman who has twice had a man make unwanted sexual advances to her (including one time when he unbuttoned her pants) would go to that man's home and then take pills he offered her, not knowing what they were. I mean, this woman knew that Cosby literally wanted to get in her pants, so why was she being so foolish? It would be crazy to swallow pills anybody handed you, without knowing what they were, but to take pills offered to you by a man who had twice before laid hands on you and tried to feel you up, without your consent, just seems incredibly reckless. And this was a grown woman, not some naive kid. At least some of the other women accusers, like Beverly Johnson, didn't willingly take the drugs. Johnson said Cosby slipped hers into a coffee drink. But this woman from Temple (whose assault is the basis for the arrest) just accepted three pills from Cosby and swallowed them, because he told her they'd make her feel better. What rational adult would do that? (And I'm not trying to blame this woman for the assault. Cosby's actions, if proven, were criminal and deserve punishment. I'm just amazed that an adult woman would behave as recklessly with a predatory man as this woman did).

Noteworthy that the "clean" Bob Hope is posthumously _persona non grata_ and loudly denounced. The Pink Panthers have gone into full indignant-flounce mode over very mild Hope jokes about homosexuality from the 1970s.

That's why Mark Steyn isn't writing for _National RINO_ any longer. Rich Lowry gave Steyn the heave-ho simply over Steyn quoting an old Hope joke to illustrate the changing cultural climate. (NR's loss by far.)

320 I would not want to be on a jury for a case like this. You don't want a predator to get away with it. But having to differentiate between willing sexual acts, and someone who was unwittingly drugged and raped, is almost impossible 11 years later.

(Had to chase off some Mexicans who ran across the parade route and tried to squeeze in front of us 20 minutes into the parade. The cops let them go even after they crossed the route, but a dude behind us spoke pretty good Spanish and heckled them until they left.) Anyway...I'd file it among "do once, but not sure ever again." It was cold even though they let us use fire pits. The drunk watching was fun and it was an experience, but walking forever to find a bathroom was a PITA and there's like a million people packed in a mile or so.

If the "evidence of similar crimes" comes in (( "404(b) evidence" in fed court)), then I think a weak case becomes a very strong case.<<

Proof of motive or intent, for sure.

326 317 evidently George Lucas has announced his dislike of the latest Star Wars movie. If he hadn't fucked up the last three, he could have made this one his way. Posted by: Pappy O'Daniel at December 30, 2015 04:20 PM (oVJmc) He's just angry that people thought his last three "Star Wars" movies were shit, and liked the one he was deliberately kept far, far away from.

328 "Times Square is one of those experiences that I want to be able to say I did one time" It looks like the police have people penned in like cattle now. I doubt it's fun any more. I've never been. And I keep expecting the Islamists to turn it into a scene from "Independence Day" any year now.

329 He penetrated them digitally which weirdly seems more creepy. Posted by: Max Rockatansky at December 30, 2015 04:07 PM Wait, really? Apparently I missed that part. That's creepy but it seems like kind less of a big deal.

330 293 A tox screen will show what is there. Leaving the identifications off the report is something else. That's not exactly true. Its meticulous and expensive to test for everything, so they usually just look for the most common and likely problems. In the real world, nobody has money and time to do 900 tests on a case like CSI or House shows. Posted by: Christopher Taylor at December 30, 2015 04:10 PM (39g3+) No. TLC is cheap and can detect plenty of things and LC will snag all the drugs and their metabolites with no problem and it does not cost a fortune. LC-MS will id the peaks.

334 I don't think Cosby had sex with any of the accusers. He penetrated them digitally which weirdly seems more creepy. Posted by: Max Rockatansky at December 30, 2015 04:07 PM (AC18V) That's interesting. Maybe he should have borrowed Clinton's cigar. I'm wondering if he deluded himself that it wasn't really sex?

Posted by: nerdygirl at December 30, 2015 11:26 AM (kGrwF)

335 At least some of the other women accusers, like Beverly Johnson, (say they) didn't willingly take the drugs. Johnson said Cosby slipped hers into a coffee drink (because she wouldn't be drinking alcohol cause she be a good woman). Added some infuriating. :-)

Posted by: scorecard at December 30, 2015 11:27 AM (PGh+Q)

336 With the number of accusers popping up, you have to wonder if it's not the same type of phenomenon that happened in a number of child care molestation cases.

Posted by: Max Rockatansky at December 30, 2015 11:28 AM (AC18V)

337 >>> evidently George Lucas has announced his dislike of the latest Star Wars movie. A link was posted at the HQ not long ago about how his ex-wife was the secret behind the heart of his films, and everything she did that made them better. And it's known how the other people involved in the films, like the other writers, made them what they are. The man has an ego the size of the Death Star. The fact is he can't admit he is a decent world builder but crappy storyteller.

Posted by: LizLem at December 30, 2015 11:28 AM (hvf9s)

338 In at least one instance I can recall,one of thewomen said she was having drinks with Cosby anddidn't know she was being drugged until she started feeling woozy and, well, drugged. The drug use was not consensual. The sex--or whatever Cosby allegedly did to her while she was out of it--was not consensual. That is, if the woman is telling the truth. Posted by: troyriser at December 30, 2015 03:21 PM (cCEFD) I think that was Beverly Johnson. Model in the 70s-80s. http://tinyurl.com/kp7tv8e

340 "Beverly Johnson" is black. I expect that a criminal case couldn't be brought on her claims because of a shorter statute of limitations. But you can expect her to testify in the PA case to establish a pattern of behavior by Crosby. Like I keep saying, Cosby is f*cked.

341 going up to a man's room to party with him alone changes that equation a little. Yeah. But in today's world, if you tell your daughter, "Don't do this, this, or this," you are accused of blaming the victim. A girl who gets very drunk is screwing up. A girl who has a couple drinks and goes to a guy's room is screwing up. It's hard to make blanket statements about whether these kinds of incidents are rape or not. Honestly, I was pretty stupid when I was in college. I sometimes drank too much. I sometimes went to a guy's apartment to watch tv or whatever. No one ever tried to rape me or force his way on me. I was lucky, in that all of the guys I had contact with were brought up right by their parents.

And I wouldn't consider going to watch a movie or even make out 'consent'.

344 I did Times Sq early 70's in college.  The place then was a dump and there were no give aways.  You peed at a bar after you bought a drink.



Waste of time, but we did get picked up by two MI girls, but we had nowhere to take them and in the early 70's people didn't hook like they do now.

News to me.  What are there, 10-15 accusers, and he has two Blacks? 



Posted by: Nip Sip at December 30, 2015 11:39 AM (jJRIy)

347 Ok, reading Beverly Johnson's account. I told him I didn't drink coffee that late in the afternoon because it made getting to sleep at night more difficult. He wouldn't let it go. OK, this does remind me of something mentioned in 'the gift of fear'. If someone won't take no for an answer on something really innocuous, that's a bad sign.

348 Guys like Jesse Jackson and Barack Hussein Obama hate the Huxtables and hate Bill Cosby. Hate. "I didn't grow up like the Huxtables" -every comedian on Russel Simmons Def Comedy Jam when not talking about how stupid white people are.

350 It is the libmedia frenzy, and the person of Gloria Femi-communist All-RED leading the quasi-prosecution, that gives me instinctive sympathy for Mr. Cosby. That and the fact that all this seems to have come after Bill Cosby exhorted African Americans to leave the welfare and professional victimology plantation the American Left has set up for them. It just seems *too* coincidental as a result.... And I have a hard time seeing these aspiring starlets and party girls as babes in the woods.... That said, say it ain't so, Bill. Cosby's motivation for that show was to show America a "wholesome" and intact upper class black family - words that America in general did not put together in 1985. Blacks and (poor) whites both looked at him and thought "wow, look at what he has achieved!" Not only through "celebrity" but through his ideals for a better world, especially for children in poverty. We respected his actions and opinions even more since he has a Doctorate in Education, which was proudly displayed after his name in the opening credits. And it wasn't just his Mr. Huxtable character either. Whether imparting lessons on good behavior to (then) kids like me on Saturday morning watching "Fat Albert", or his role as the dignified (and at the time groundbreaking for TV) sidekick on "I Spy", or his stand up comedy routines that used profanity sparingly and only when really necessary for the humor, Mr. Cosby always seemed like a class act. Even in his truly *awful* TV and movie parts (Ghostdad? Leonard Part 6?) his character was always a good guy. It is sad to discover he is a creep.
