    This really should not be taking so long. It would be interesting to know which Jurors are holding things up. I don't give a spit how old he is, or famous, or color he is. What he did is despicable and he should pay the piper.

    I absolutely agree. This is taking to long as all have said. * Still no verdict.. back at 9am Friday. Is it possible they are afraid, fearing a backlash from the black community ? He is a serial rapist! Color and race should have nothing to do with this. But, it's obvious it is going to.

    I read a good book on the OJ Simpson civil trial years ago - The lawyers for the plaintiffs screened out all older black woman - they were inclined to support OJ - I bet the same is true for Cosby.

    I think you may be right. IMO I thought this would be open and shut, but this is getting ridiculous ! Who on this jury are not seeing him for who and what he really is. Brainwashed obviously, from his oh so lovable TV persona.

    His publicist ... " Mr. Cosby's power is back. It's back, It has been restored." Me, I would pull the plug on this dirty fucker. Someone said this is a slap in the face to victims, try sucker punch. I am disgusted with this outcome. As for his wife, be ashamed, your a disgrace to your fellow women.

    I'm pissed but not that surprised. Smug bastard. At least his rep is destroyed. First thing on my News Feed and I am already spooled up for the day. True LA justice.

    If the publicist actually believes that, he/she is delusional. His career would be over even if they WEREN'T going to retry him.

    I was curious, so I went back to page 2 of this thread, which is when the story broke. A lot of people on here were quick to defend him. I don't mean that as an attack on anybody; I just think it's interesting how public opinion can evolve over time.

    Very well said Mansfield. He is a sick dirty old man and the fact that his wife is standing by his side makes her a sick dirty old lady- Quite the twisted relationship IMO-

    Thank you. Like cleanskull , I was not surprised by the outcome just pissed off. It is interesting how some portray his wife as a victim in all this, due to the fact that he is a master of manipulation. Maybe that's true, but others are saying she is smart, she didn't stand by her man ,she stood by his wallet.

    At first, folks did not want to believe it. I listened to his comedy albums when I was much younger, watched the Fat Albert Cartoons. Thought he was cool on "I Spy." Society has a tendency to blame the victim and trivialize violence to Women. A lot of opinions did change as more of the truth came out.

    Well according to the two Corey's there's a lot of sick perverts in Hollywood so I'm not surprised he got away with it. I am ashamed of the human race though. (not you guys though. You guys are cool.)

    Time to get rid of jurors. They can't separate their personal feelings, and not everyone fully understands the law. Too many times criminals are getting off because of juror stupidity. OJ, Casey Anthony and now this creep.

    Every one of those women put herself in his path, fully knowing where it could possibly go. Those who met him through Hugh Hefner were in that cloud for one reason, and one only. Was Cosby immoral? Yes. Is Hefner a pimp? Yes. Were these girls open eyed when they took pills? Yes.
    They are all equally complicit. Money and fame are at the core.

    Yeah, every woman dreams of becoming famous as a rape victim, it really is a ticket to the top.

    Incidentally, do you blame Roman Polanski's victim also?

    After all she was 13, I'm sure when a famous director wants to take your picture for a well known magazine, you just take it for granted the evening will end with your being given a quaalude and being sodomized in Jack Nicholson's hot tub.

    He has hired Michael Jackson's lawyer. He got a pedophile off, he will do the same for this serial rapist.

    Apparently that was a quote from a well known actor that was off the record.

    It still got me tickled. I wonder if it was intentional or just an "oops" statement.

    I would say intentional, someone said it was either Mel Gibson or Jack Nicholson who made the quip. I'll go with Mel. LOL
