Even if he didn't have the fame and wealth to keep him out of a prison like that, he's a bit too old for the other prisoners to be sniffing around for his cornhole, imo. Though you're the ex guard, did the old guys get targeted for booty time just the same?

Cosby will end up in a day-spa type of prison, like the one Bernie Madoff is at. Yard has a garden and reflecting pool so the prisoners can mediate. Food is catered in.

Bernie Madoff was sentenced too harshly for what he did. The libtard judge let too much of his emotions get through during the sentencing. 150 years for white collar crime is ridiculous when you consider that murderers get less.

In seriousness, I was a big fan of Cosby. Went to see him live a couple times, and I always thought he was both an excellent comedian and an upstanding societal spokesman. I've never been into celebs in any meaningful sense beyond entertainment purposes, but there are those you like and whose work you deeply appreciate.

We've seen enough unfortunate stories like this to realize that public personas and personal lives are wildly different beasts. So outside of, like, Fred Rogers, hearing that anyone was into horrible sh*t wouldn't surprise me, while also realizing that, however public these falls from grace are, they still represent a minority of people as a whole and even celebs. But it makes it no less disappointing.

So this is sad. But knowing that the judicial system tends to do its job well, it's good that there's justice. He admitted before a jury that he gave certain women quaaludes in the 70s, so while there are potentially those who are just looking to profit off of this, I don't believe his guilt is in any doubt.

Ditto. thumb up

What matters to me is: did these women *know* they were being given drugs? Did he do it without their knowledge?

As prosecutor seeks to revoke his bail, Cosby curses at him

The details of the trial don't matter to me. Despite my admiration for his earlier work, Cosby's a stranger to me personally, and we have a reasonable standard of evidence required for convictions in the vast majority of cases in this country.

Also, having been on juries a couple times for surprisingly complicated cases, then having the benefit of being able to go back afterward to see the media coverage of it, you realize in a hurry that we don't see a fraction of what actually takes place in even the most well-meaning news reports. Playing armchair jury member, so to speak, is just another way to be upset while being uninformed.

I mean when it comes to giving them drugs it is important what the circumstances were. If he offered them drugs and they accepted...meh. If he drugged them without their knowledge that is wrong.

Agreed. But my point is that it's important to the people in the courtroom, not to me. Despite thinking that people can be spiteful, the process of law prevents gross injustices from happening in all but a select few cases, and usually those aren't in the limelight.
