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?
He will have none stop cases being brought. I don't know the statute for rape, but he will not escape it all. So if this 1 case doesn't stand up we should ignore the other 60 some odd, Most people don't need a court conviction to tell right from wrong.

The bit is funny if you were a 13 year old boy in the 60's and 70's. Simply put, Spanish fly doesn't work as an aphrodisiac. It does work as a male erectile dysfunction remedy and was used that way in earlier times. However it can be lethal if given in too high a dose. There have been documented poisonings and deaths due to Spanish fly.

There's only one case that has not passed the statute, and little if any evidence for that one case against him. The rest of those fifty and some odd women are wasting their time.

Life will go on as usual. And "The Cosby Show" will still be shown on TV.

These women waited far too long to make their accusations and go public.

He is a serial rapist whose past has (finally) caught up to him.

He is going to die broke, shamed and a pariah in the community - as well he should.

They are the vile one's in this case? Yea all of them are probably lying. You're a genius.

Ha! He may be shamed and become a pariah, but there's no way his hundreds of millions are going to disappear.

I doubt he will be acquitted this time. He has admitted to drugging many women with Quaaludes (including this plaintiff) and then having sex with them. His defense is that was consensual - the women knew what they were taking and his intents. This is the first case since the admission that doesn't fall outside the statute of limitations.

Legally that is true. In the court of public opinion it is not.
