Ridiculous content in my view.



Sadly, they are all family men until they're exposed for what they are...and then they're really not at all.

Merely cultural icons who fall from grace due to their belief that they are all powerful and silence is their due.

Now they must pay the piper.
Agreed.

Cosby masqueraded as a good husband and father, but come to find out (later) on the sly was schmoozing and hanging with the likes of Hugh Hefner, the King of Debauchery, himself. Talk about a lowlife!

Im not so sure about all this.

I watched a movie from 1985 the other day with Valerie Bertanelli (spelling of her last name?) Called 'Silent Witnesses'.

It was about a married couple that saw the husbands brother take part in a gang rape of a drunk woman in a bar. I was completely blown away how everyone was treating this crime in the movie, everyone was more interested in protecting themselves and their interests, rather than helping the victim. even the bar owner turned his back so he didnt have to watch! Going to police or helping the woman was the last thing anyone was thinking about! They even had the female victim, blaming herself for what happened and regretting going to police.

Keep in mind, this was a made for tv movie and really was not that long ago!

I dont think this speaks very highly for us as a society (as a whole) if this was the norm as recently as the late 80s.

It's so disgusting and repulsive, that it's "slimy".

Yes, but hopefully (as it appears to be anyway) we are moving away from the hiding and silence allowing shameful behavior to take place in our society.

I appreciate the motto of "see something, say something" and I support it completely.

Singer Nina Simone appeared on Hefner's TV show. Does that make her a lowlife as well? A LOT of the top entertainers from the 1950's and 1960's appeared on that show.
