Honestly, I didn't know that. I thought his sentence was longer. I wish his sentence was longer.

I don’t care if I never hear another word about this serial sexual predator.

Leave him alone and don’t give him another word of free press.

It was bad enough that he was found guilty of being a serial rapist; but they should have given him extra time for drugging his victims. He isn't any doctor that was administering proper medication. The drugs he administered could have killed or injured his victims. If a manufacturer makes a mistake and sells an adulterated pharmaceutical it's all over the news. In Cosby's case it is like the law overlooked the gravity of playing doctor of god with his victims lives. That, in itself, should have sent him away for a very long time.

Well we really don't know what they think.

Famous people are also more protected IMO, because they don't want the publicity of them getting hurt or beat up.


Cohen is in a country club prison for Jewish people only, no one's getting butt-raped and he's probably eating bagels and lox and watching a movie right now. It's just how it is. Cosby is in a worse position because he's alone a lot and in a "regular" prison, but I don't think he would have the same problems in general pop you or I would have. It doesn't mean I have any admiration for him whatsoever though.
Cohen is not in jail yet. Not till March. What fed prison is for Jews only? And none of them are country clubs. Martha Stewart was in a minimum security prison in W. VA. Not a great experience, I'm sure. Cohen is going away for much longer than she did. Manafort will probably spend the rest of his life in prison. Flynn may "go away" for a long time as well.

The max he got was 10 years. The min is 3 years where he gets to apply for parole. In the meantime he is appealing the verdict. This has already had two trials. Enough. Enough of him. Enough of people trying to " salvage" his legacy too.

I'm not sure where you come up with some of this stuff, but is no such thing in this country as a "prison for Jewish people only."

Um, Cohen isn't doing time yet. His date to go to prison is March 6.

He may be sentenced to a federal penitentiary in Otisville, N.Y. This tells a little about it and should make it clear that it isn't "for Jewish people only."

Ok I was wrong about the dates and perhaps non Jews are there too, but it’s certainly not the scary dangerous world of a typical prison. Plus who gets to choose what prison they go to?

“The minimum-security camp at the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, N.Y., has become an enclave for Jewish white-collar offenders.”

“For a Jewish person, there is no place like Otisville,” said Earl Seth David, 54, a former inmate who attended kosher meals, religious classes and weekly Shabbat services in the prison shul, a shared space where the Torah scrolls are locked up every night.”
