    Dr. Huxtable heads to the Big House--The Bill Cosby thread

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/26/a...y-retrial.html

    Personally, I would like to see him get 30 years in prison, with a possibility of parole in 10-15 years. He's 80 now, so that's effectively a life-sentence. I don't care if he's old. He should have been in prison years ago. The moral preening from this guy over the years is amazing, such a hypocrite.

    I'm just hoping he enjoys them puddin'-pops in prison.

    A 22-year-old juror said after the trial that it was the defendant's own admission to drugging his victims that led to the conviction. This juror, by the way, was rather unfamiliar with the defendant's TV, movie and comedy work, so he had no emotional attachment or nostalgia conflicts: https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/30/us/co...ion/index.html

    The moral grandstanding he did for years is even more despicable in retrospect. It's most likely how he was able to get away with his crimes. I hope he rots.

    Anyway, this is a good excuse to post this.

    That is comedy gold. Murphy is a fucking comic genius.

    Serves Cosby right. He always comes across as this "hey, I'm a harmless guy. I just trying to be good to everyone. I don't curse in my comedy routines. I don't say filthy things like Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy. No, I just want to be your good dad. Here, buy some Jell-O and Puddin' Pops!" What a fucking douche bag. I would love to deck him and take back the money my parents spent on fucking Ghost Dad. That movie fucking sucked.

    Did you ever see that Family Guy episode where Stewie appears on "Kids Say The Darndest Things" and Bill Cosby takes his Hypnotic Glasses. Cosby stares into Stewie with the glasses on and Stewie gets hypnotized. Stewie says, "He likes pudding and Ghost Dad was the best movie since Leonard Part 6!" LOL. Gets me every time.

    There are so many things that outrage me about that "article". Number one is that it is an article in the first place.

    I'm not knocking Trader Joe's or anyone who works there, but it is a little sad. And how is it he didn't save and invest money he earned from his gig on that show?

    So disgusting. How many women got harrassed to no end and put under a microscope after coming forward about this fucking serial rapist only for him to get a sentence so light he’ll probably be wearing an ankle bracelet in a mansion somewhere within a few years? Our justice system could not be more useless and it’s as if the judge went for as minimal a sentence possible without outright guaranteeing him freedom. It’s so gross.

    3-10 does seem pretty light. I was expecting at least 5-10.

    He should have gotten ten years minimum, imho.

    I thought that he would be separated from the general population.

    We Need to Talk About Cosby.

    Review by Brian Tallerico

    This looks excellent:

    Where do you start to talk about Bill Cosby? He was one of the most popular entertainment figures of the twentieth century, a man who reshaped the television landscape in a way that defined representation in comedy. He was also a violent, vicious predator who used his carefully constructed public image as a family man and respected pillar of the community to feed his vile urges. The conversation around Bill Cosby doesn’t just need to include both of these stories, it needs to recognize how they were inextricably connected—how Cosby’s public persona and popularity enabled him to commit horrific crimes outside of the public eye. And the conversation needs to include how commonly we refuse to recognize that what we see on TV or hear on a stage isn’t anywhere near the whole story when it comes to a person’s life. We thought we knew Bill Cosby because he so deftly turned his own life into stand-up and fiction, but we didn’t realize how much of it was a lie.
