I grew up watching Cliff Huxtable and family regularly. “Tight” but at the same time, crazy bunch. The character Bill Cosby played was the ‘loving’ dad and husband…who wouldn’t ‘admire’that?
Undoubtedly, Cosby was ‘powerful’ among his peers. He was one star that his peers would stop on their track and perhaps shake his hand when they meet him in any gathering. He has enjoyed decades of popularity.
Then women, who supposedly were raped by Cosby started telling their stories. 18 Women. 18! And he is all quiet about the allegations….what does his silence means?
“At some point, his silence becomes almost kind of an admission,” he said. “These are horrible, horrendous allegations.”
Cosby has not commented on the allegations, leaving that to his lawyer.
In a recent statement, Singer said it defies common sense that “so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.”
By CNN’s count, at least 18 women have gone public with accusations.
“He owes this country. He owes his fans. He owes the women some kind of statement,” said Jones, who is also an attorney. “I think this level of silence for this long is unfair to everybody.”
Clearly Cosby’s star has gone dark. Performances canceled, university severed their ties with him…etc. If proven all allegations correcttrue, do you think this old man should spend the rest of his life in jail?
If guilty, I vote for Yes. No one is above the law, Dr. Huxtable. And may you ask for forgiveness to those you’ve done wrong. And for your soul.
