What’s a self-righteous moralizer to do?


Bill Cosby is out, and of course he has a plan for his life: to lecture young men on how to avoid getting caught.

Bill Cosby will organize a series of town hall meetings to help educate young people about problems their misbehavior could create, a spokesman for Cosby said Thursday.
Cosby is eager to get back to work following a deadlocked jury and mistrial in his sexual assault trial, spokesman Andrew Wyatt told Birmingham, Alabama, TV station WBRC.

“We’ll talk to young people. Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby. You know, this, this issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today,” Wyatt said. “And they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.

This is exactly what the rapist has been doing for years.

Lecturing isn’t new for Cosby. In recent years, the comedian and actor became known for scolding fellow African-Americans for poor grammar, sloppy dress and not valuing education, critiques that drew fire from some as elitist.

He’s just going to add one more item to his repertoire: how to use a date-rape drug with sophistication.

    “…doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”

    What a nice euphemism for rape! (Excuse me while I throw up!)

    Dammit Cos’ the way to avoid being caught for a crime is to NOT do the crime. Only inveterate rapists turn mentor to aprentices. You really trying to propagate your abuse of women. Even without sexually violating them, drugging them with a “mikky” is another form of Rape.(violation of body autonomy). Are gloating your acquittal (by mistrial) ???
    I wonder if that can work around the double jeopardy clause, he was declared innocent by the jury. The jury declared “can’t decide”. Any lawyers here?
    Man it sucks when a comedian one was once a big fan of turns out to be a prevert [sic] 😥

    slithey @2: Double jeopardy is not an issue when a mistrial occurs. The prosecutors have already said they’re going to try him again.

    [… H]e was declared innocent by the jury.

    No, it was mistrial.

    Prosecutors vow to retry Bill Cosby after sexual assault case ends in mistrial:

    Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case ended in a mistrial on Saturday, with jurors reporting hopeless deadlock over charges that the comedian drugged and violated a woman in 2004. Montgomery County district attorney Kevin Steele immediately said prosecutors would seek to retry Cosby on the same charges. They will have 120 days to do so.

    After deliberating for more than 52 hours […], a weary panel told Judge Steven T O’Neill that they could not reach consensus […]

    Gee, Cosby’s health seems to have remarkably recovered following the announcement of the mistrial.

    Re 4
    Right. I accidentally dropped the “not” while writing my synopsis of the case.
    All hail Lord Tpyo

    “We’ll talk to young people. Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby. You know, this, this issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today,” Wyatt said.

    Especially young athletes?

    That’s awfully … specific.

  8. consciousness razor says

    … and young people.

    Cosby is neither, in case nobody noticed. Am I not getting it? Maybe this is just spokesperson-speak for “my client needs to make some more money somehow.”

  9. rietpluim says

    Great, just what the world needs. A lecture about how to get away with rape. One wouldn’t think it possible but Cosby managed to sink even lower than he already had.

  10. gijoel says

    I hope someone asks him how he can look at himself in the mirror after what he’s done.

  11. says

    Young (male) athletes are a protected species because every one knows success at sport is paramount to the defenders of the Ugly States..

    “We’ll talk to young people. Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby. You know, this, this issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today,” Wyatt said. “And they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.

    So an open admission that the lectures are for people that have committed actions for which there are legal punishments, usualy called ‘crimes.’

    slithey tove@6, Understood & Thanks!
    I myself frequently feed Typos the same food — a missing “no” — with results that range from the hilarious to the dreadful. In this case, due to the confusion about “double jeopardy” — concurrently clarified by eamick@3 — I took the (then-presumed) Typos offering as an inadvertant “dreadful” example, which would benefit from a robust response.

    (By, of course, someone’s “Law”, this response will itself contain unintentional Typos offerings… and I won’t say how many i spotted & hopefully corrected during proofreading! Let’s just say the Preview button is almost worn out.)
