Cosby Trial & the Madonna Whore Complex

*  The jury was  declared deadlocked in Bill Cosby’s trial on 6/17/17. It is time for the court system to seriously examine why our criminal justice system cannot hold a rich and powerful man responsible for sexually assaulting scores of women  whom he has drugged into a state of paralyzes. PGB

According to the news report, all eyes were on Bill Cosby’s wife,  Camille Cosby, as she entered the courtroom and found her seat while the judge was speaking.

“By allowing Cosby’s wife to enter the courtroom in the middle of proceedings while the judge was speaking, officials extended her an extraordinary and unprecedented courtesy that had not been afforded to others in the crowded courtroom. Members of the audience, including some of Cosby’s other accusers who are not testifying, have not even been allowed to leave the courtroom in the midst of proceedings for bathroom breaks without being blocked from re-entering.”

Meanwhile, Cosby attorney Brian McMonagle branded as a “stone cold” liar Cosby’s accuser, Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women’s basketball staffer who says Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2004. And he argued the approximately 60 other  Cosby accusers were merely seeking to appear on television and the Dr. Phil show, including Victoria Valentino and Linda Kirkpatrick, who sat in the last of eight jammed rows of padded wooden benches.

According to Reuters, “Camille Cosby has been deposed in a civil suit filed by an accuser and had been active behind the scenes in developing strategy in the criminal case, according to sources familiar with defense preparations. But she has made no public appearances related to the criminal proceedings. That is, until Monday.”

Camille Cosby, a “philanthropist” and art collector, is accorded great deference in the court system, though it appears she looked the other way for decades, while her husband allegedly drugged and raped scores of women.  Whereas the victims, many of whom told startlingly similar tales of being drugged and assaulted by a wealthy, powerful man, are demeaned  as liars and manipulator.

To borrow McMonagle’s words, “This ain’t right.”

    Cosby has his fans and there is nothing that will ever change their minds about their “hero.” To the rest of us thinking people, he’s a rapist and a sick abuser. The lawyer is doing his job and he knows he’s full of it and most likely also knows he doesn’t stand a chance in hell of exonerating his client. Even if Cosby technically wins in this courtroom, he is toast in the public’s greater eye. 60 women are not lying and everyone knows it. Mrs. Cosby – the “philanthropist and art collector” – got what she wanted out of her 50 year relationship, which wanted to be known as a “philanthropist and art collector.” In other words, she spent his money while he strayed legally and illegally. He already testified in depositions that he obtained illegal drugs for the purpose of having sex with women not his wife. So all Camille is really left with is her art collection; her dignity died out a long time ago. The entire situation is a nightmare; but I had my own problems with NBC and blame the executives at the network for not putting a stop to what they had to know was going on. The only thing any corporation cares about is money … Cosby deserves everything he is getting, and more. I was raised in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania and am pleased to see this case playing out in my old hometown.
