‘But this is all hollow, if there are other high powered and established sexual predators, pedophiles, closet pedophiles, homosexuals lose, on the political ladder, shielded and protected by double standards, partisan support and disgusting behavior!’
MORE DRACONIAN STRUCTURAL CHANGES NEEDED TO ADDRESS SEXUAL MISCONDUCT SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER & CONSUMERIST DR JACOB GEORGE! (Part 2 – High Society Players)
In the US a political game is being orchestrated and played over a Supreme Court Nominee while earlier allegations against the top man in that country still goes unanswered in the alleged “land of the free?”
But stars that have fallen recently, include my idol of the 60’s series – ‘I Spy!’
Yes, Bill Cosby was led off to prison in handcuffs today sentenced to three to 10 years behind bars for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman.
The punishment made him the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be sent to prison and all but completed the dizzying, late-in-life fall from grace for the comedian, former TV star and breaker of racial barriers.
Bill Cosby showed little emotion and no remorse during his sentencing.
At this defining moment in his life, there were no family members or former cast mates with him for moral support.
There are reports that the court was filled, though, with several of his accusers who sat in the rows behind Andrea Constand.
That Model Janice Dickenson clapped her hands in anticipation and joy, others quietly held hands.
Their relief was evident when his sentence was finally read out.
This was a moment they never thought possible.
And they had front seats to witness it.
I was not taken aback by the learned judge’s remarks as he stated:
“It is time for justice.
Mr Cosby, this has all circled back to you.
The time has come!”
Inexplicably I was surprised that Judge Steven O’Neill quoted from victim Andrea Constand’s own statement to the court, in which she said Cosby took her “beautiful, young spirit and crushed it”.
I was not surprised that Cosby, 81, declined the opportunity to speak before the sentence came down, and afterwards sat smiling, laughing and chatting with his defense team.
Like all of us defense lawyers – Cosby’s lawyers had asked that he be allowed to remain free on bail while he appeals against his conviction, but the judge appeared incredulous and ordered him locked up immediately, saying that “he could quite possibly be a danger to the community”.
Not surprised Bill removed his watch, tie and jacket and walked out in a white dress shirt, his hands cuffed in front of him.
But this is all hollow if there are other high powered and established sexual predators, pedophiles, closet pedophiles, homosexuals lose, on the political ladder, shielded and protected by double standards, partisan support and disgusting behavior!
