Women who delay reporting the rape are often suspect.


One or 2. yea I am suspicious of the accusation.
But now we are up to I think 15.
Thats a big number that seems to be growing.
With this high number and each case has the same MO.
I think Bill Cosby has some explaining to do.

Well, I guess each of the sudden complainants can read about the MO stuff.

But there's no reason to come forth, other than desire to see the truth revealed.

Yeah, many male celebrities have women mad at them, and are womanizers (Charlie Sheen comes to mind), but they don't usually rush to make up serious and false charges in such a large numbers. And these are brief encounters, not long or short bitter marriages.

I don't think most people want to accuse people of serious crimes unless they really think it happened to them. Not giving someone a career boost, and taking this kind of revenge on them after so many years seems improbable. That's 20, 30 year grudges.

Gotta give Cosby the thumbs down on his credibility at this point.
Nobody learned anything from the global financial crisis.

Yes, I do see the difference between a scorned Hollywood starlet and a brief encounter but to some women its an "investment", it either pays off down the line or it doesn't: settlement or share of claim against estate.

You have made me think about this some more though.... I wonder if he actually desired near corpses but was so wealthy why he would risk the wealth to indulge his perverse fantasies.

Looking at hugely successful black men,
like Cosby and Tiger Woods, they both
have big problems in the sex department.

Cosby seems evil now, but I heard a radio
call in show years ago with pedaphiles as
the guests. They didn't sound evil in the
least, they had plausible, even loving reasons
for what they did. Gave me the creeps, but
I can't say they sounded evil. I bet Cosby had
logical reasons for what he did also.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Look how many people of extreme wealth engage in all kinds of dangerous stuff. Do you think that President Clinton couldn't engage a beautiful hooker? Why risk his presidency on an unstable young woman?

A settlement can still be the cheapest way to stop what is utter blackmail unfounded in any fact whatsoever.


Giving Bill Cosby the benefit of the doubt does not require you to take one person's word over another—it requires you take one person's word over 15 others.

Most of these scandals are "he said/she said."

With Bill Cosby, it's "he said/she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said, and she said and she said."

With a serial rapist, it's not about how
many came forward, it's about the
majority of victims who will never
admit they were raped too. If 15
are talking, you can almost bet
30 aren't.

True, particularly if drugs are involved where memories may range from distorted to totally absent.
