MR. COSBY, CONTINUE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE U.S.A EXTREME JUDGICIAL OFFICIAL'S CRUELTY IN BOTH JAIL/PRISON.

I wonder how long it will be before he files a lawsuit for wrongful imprisonment and wins. Unbelieveable as this sounds but Cosby shouldn't have been criminally charged as per the DA's agreement, for the next DA to charge him was simply unlawful. If not then EVERY SINGLE AGREEMENT a DA makes is worthless and the repercussions of that would be catastrophic.

Bill Cosby was trying to buy a couple TV networks and uplift blacks at the same.
Throught history, any black leader trying to do better for blacks is taken out one way or the other.
When you have many women claiming rape but reading from scripts, you know something is up.
...But so many people fell for it.

So these local affiliates media outlets are now changing their the wording from _victims_ to *accusers.*

What's the matter mainstream media, afraid y'all will be held libel now? 🥴

This is what happens when prosecutors break the law.

When law enforcement break the law and that violation of the law is proven as in this case, the courts will dismiss the case and drop all charges.

By law, police have been promised that all abuse of power, all violations committed by cops cannot be brought in a court of law. The law is called qualified immunity.

I say immunity should be illegal period! If immunity was not part of our laws, Cosby would not be given it as a shield and cops wouldn't be shielded from being charged in a court of law, and their records sealed.

Don't be simply mad that Cosby is shielded because of immunity laws and yet be silent that cops are shielded because of the same immunity laws. Fight to END IMMUNITY FOR ANYONE!!!!!

Why aren't the women who disapprove of these events, talking about the smiling women shown in this footage seen with him, linked in arm who helped aid his release?

The original DA said she had a weak case. She continued to meet with him
in hotel, private home despite all his alleged advances and waited a
year before contacting police after she perused civil litigation. He
stated her best road to justice was a civil route. In order for Cosby to
lose his 5th amendment privilege in the civil trial, he gave him
immunity from criminal liability by telling him he will not prosecute.
They then decided to blatantly violate his 5th amendment rights and
prosecute anyway and even use the testimony from the civil case as well
as this plaintiff.
Why is there no criminal liability for violating
people's constitutional rights that they swore to protect? Whether Cosby
is guilty or not why is there no criminal liability for these accusers
that lie under oath? Cosby has the best lawyers money can buy. This is
how he got out. What about poor people that can't afford to defend
themselves and are now sitting in jail for a crime they didn't commit as
a result of constitutional violations?

They took away his fifth amendment rights and promised him he would not be prosecuted , then used his statements against him later on to prosecute him. This was not a technicality it was a farce of due course.

INFINITE UNIVERSE
INFINITE UNIVERSE:
This case legally should have never made it to court due to Cosby's legal Immunity, and there were also several other procedural errors made that could have opened the door for an appeal as well. Cosby was Rail-Roaded, however this result doesn't necessarily indicate whether he was innocent or guilty. In my opinion the evidence against him was flimsy in the first place. Relying on outdated testimony against a rich celeb, potentially for money reasons. Or perhaps the D.A "Publicly Shaming" Cosby while having him serve over 2 yrs in prison while his appeal is still pending. I believe Cosby may be able to seek financial compensation for his illegal imprisonment as well. The truly guilty party in this case is the D.A.'s prosecution who wasted these alleged victims and tax payers time and heartache knowing full well the conviction could be overturned. The D.A. took a huge gamble and got caught cutting corners. Corners they may have not bothered trying to cut had this been just a normal citizen being tried, instead of a world famous celebrity scalp they were trying to hang on their wall. The disgraced prosecution will now do a media tour in an attempt to spin their complete failure. To justify why they violated Mr. Cosby's legal rights and waste the alleged victims and tax payers time and money through their overly optimistic legal pursuits. This reminds me of the corners cut by the prosecution in the OJ Simpson case (another rich black celeb scalp) which resulted in his acquittal.

Habib Osman
Habib Osman:
These hyper emotional televised courtcases are very unreliable. Courtcases with celebrities should no longer allow these multi-cases. Finish those cases 1 by 1. If some of the cases brought against the suspect fails to deliver in court, no sentence should be given. If a case is deemed unlawfull in court, a sentence should be given based on that precise case. No more of these "23 different people claim 23 different things from the same suspect" type courtcases anymore please! Especially not when highly dramatised in the media. Leads to major court fails and unjustice for the suspect and the accuser alike!

Man they all knew when you want to make it into the industry you have to do what they say to black mail you to keep you in line. Why is Charlie Sheen not in jail bro. He gave women Aids and admitted it. Its slavery all over. Im not saying he did not sleep with them but I am saying they knew the terms of their deal and they say rape when they are told to. Tupac said it when they came for him Mike Tyson, Kobe Bryant. I am sick and tired of this. Remember they did this in the time of Jim Crow. If a white girl was sleeping with the black guy they would make her say he rapped her and it would be a modern day lynching. Social Media has become today's lynch mob.

He's the only person who comes out of jail in better shape than he went in. During his trial he used both a walker and wheel chair, seemed like he couldn't see more than a few feet. He comes out of jail able to stand on his own, sees just fine, and walks on his own with assistance for balance... No canes, wheelchairs or walkers.... Funny how that works.

Ladies- you have to READ the entire disposition and LISTEN to what everyone said. I’m sorry y’all but he’s innocent based on the evidence that was presented. On top of that he was never supposed to even be tried. I know it’s disheartening but if we allow our emotions to run everything we will miss pivotal stuff. The court can’t try someone for a criminal act based on your opinion

The dude ADMITTED to drugging women in the civil trial deposition. The fact that the DA broke the deal is grounds under our constitution for the release, but it does not negate the fact that Cosby did indeed drug women. He just got away with it. So, the real miscarriage of justice was to all of his victims.

He admitted he did it to a prosecutor in 2005 to avoid prosecution, then got prosecuted for what he did in 2019. He isn't innocent, he simply got off on a technicality. Nobody said anything about "false accusers." You sound like a bunch of Trump-supporters.
