Camille Olivia Cosby (née Hanks; born March 20, 1944) is an American television producer, author and philanthropist.
Putting aside for the moment that she’s the wife of comedian Bill Cosby, she’s also quite an accomplished lady in her own right, and while acknowledging the fact that he cheated on her, she has repeatedly and vehemently denied he’s any sort of rapist: “The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man… and a wonderful husband, father and friend.”
“In the statement posted to her husband’s official social media accounts, Camille Cosby said that Andrea Constand’s testimony during the trial “was unsupported by any evidence and riddled with innumerable, dishonest contradictions.” “
I agree with that, as well, along with her call for a “criminal investigation of the Montgomery County District attorney, who she said tried her husband solely for career advancement.”
It is COMMON for DA’s to press on while knowing an individual is innocent, and sometimes they win with the full knowledge that they just sent an innocent person to jail. That’s so beyond the normal of most people that we can’t even believe it’s true, but it is, and two assistant DA’s I know have confirmed it, one without any remorse and the other while stating he was switching to defense law.
When I asked him, “Why?” he said, “sadly, DA’s are rewarded by career advancement mostly on the basis of convictions and NOT the accuracy of those convictions.”
Now it makes sense: They’re in it for the money.
This trial should never have gone forth as there was never anything to try. One person writing a few lines in a book is what resulted in dozens magically appearing out of nowhere as long as 50 — FIFTY — years after the alleged event took place. Even the most recent event was alleged to have taken place more than a DECADE before the individual ever bothered mentioning it to ANYONE, much less stepping forward.
Why? Because Bill Cosby is worth well over $100 Million. Some reports put that as high as $400 Million. Regardless of any criminal conviction, a successful civil lawsuit would set the accusers up for life, but with a criminal conviction, the outcome of a civil lawsuit is guaranteed. Whether she even goes after Cosby in a civil suit is immaterial: The accuser has already received book offers galore worth millions.
Again, FOLLOW THE MONEY. The Bible says the love of money is the root of many evils, and I don’t see ANYTHING virtuous or righteous in the lives of Cosby’s accusers. All I see are clear sins that point to a love of money.
As to all of you who jumped on the anti-Cosby bandwagon, congratulations — you allowed emotion, fear, and prejudice to carry you away. Perhaps you never got over OJ’s acquittal years ago. Perhaps you can’t separate this “Bill” from the former president who kept sticking his dick in a certain White House intern. I’m sure these were factors in the jury’s — er, the SECOND jury’s — decision. When convicting a person for a capital or other infamous crime, I am of the opinion that a hung jury should never be considered a “mistrial,” but rather, a failure to convict. That is, after all, why Denver remains a no open carry locale despite the fact that all of Colorado is an open carry state. They had a hung jury.
This entire debacle is not justice. It’s a TRAVESTY of justice, and those of you who self-righteously jumped on that bandwagon nodding your bobble-heads after the ill-gotten conviction should be ASHAMED of yourselves. Camille says you’re no better than lynch mobs, and I agree with her on this point, too.
If you think you know her husband better than she she does after 50 years of living with him? If so, you’re a SPECIAL kind of stupid.
