How are they gold diggers when they didn't ask for any money.

I don't believe the gold digging liars
Lay off the innocent until proven guilty crap. No one here is a judge or juror and has the power to throw him in prison. What we all have is the right to our opinion and common sense says he is guilty of being a serial rapist.

Default What will happen after Cosby is acquitted?



Considering that there's only a flimsy case against him with no conceivable evidence and the fact
that he hired the hell out of a lawyer who seems to be able to effortlessly argue her way out of anything, it's almost certain that Cosby will be acquitted.

So, what is going to happen after that? Are they going to clear his name, give him back his honorary degrees, and put his show back into syndication, or is Cosby going to be O.J-shamed for the rest of his life?

Would those of you who think he's guilty reconsider and re-embrace him as America's favorite T.V dad after the case against him doesn't stand up in court?

What will happen? I imagine the world will keep spinning on it's axis and life will go on.

Cosby hasn't been 'America's tv Dad' for years. IF he's innocent - he can fade back into obscurity or keep doing stand-up where he makes those ridiculous noises. Bipity Bopity Boo.

Honestly, I'm not sure he won't be convicted. Unlike O.J. Bill Cosby was a huge part of a lot of peoples lives. I'm not sure people will be very objective in the trial against him. He might win on appeal but my gut says he will lose the jury trial due to that. Even if he doesn't I don't think his career will come back within the Western world. It's just too tainted.

Fully informed juries can go either way.

I've been turned off by Bill Cosby from way back when I heard him joke about giving "Spanish Fly" to girls to get sex. It was on one of his comedy records and you can hear him for yourself on the bottom link. It was a common reference for him early on in his career. I have no doubt that he used it and other drugs to get sex from non-consenting women. Maybe not all 60 of them but enough.

They can, but most of them know the amount of complaints against him and his status as the t.v. dad. I really don't foresee too many jurors viewing him with sympathetic eyes.

No, I meant with contemptuous eyes.
