    Even if the courts find a way to fuck it up, he’s as toxic as OJ. Piece of shit.

    And now his lawyer says the trial took a toll on his client’s health. After this mistrial there won’t be another trial. Justice will fail again. One set of laws for….oh forget it.

  6. Mario says:

    Guess the same can be said about a lot of politicians. Including Bill Clinton.

    At a loss. The evidence seemed overwhelming.

    Years back, a lawyer friend described the idea of a “perverse jury”, who delivered a verdict in seeming contradiction to all the evidence. Is this what she was talking about? This jury didn’t deliver a contradictory verdict, they didn’t deliver a verdict at all.

    smh

      I think the most compelling would be the disclosure during the trial of the depositions Cosby gave about 10 years ago in which he admitted his guilt. Yup, I think that did it for me.

    Innocent. Her testimony doesn’t add up or make sense at and he has a witness that she’s, setting him up.

    Just to be a bit contrarian (and not in any way defending Cosby, or Ghomeshi), but this sort of thing is what separates us from tin-pot dictatorships with kangaroo courts. You don’t convict people based on whether you like them or not. You don’t convict people based on whether a lot of people think the accused it guilty. You convict people based on evidence, and you give everyone (regardless of how much you despise them) the chance to defend themselves.

    That being said, the court of public opinion is also a powerful thing. As Sean above states, Cosby (and Ghomeshi) will be toxic for the rest of their lives. No one should be legally able to slander them, but no one is compelled to ever do business with them again, or have them on their TV show, or even give them a job flipping burgers. Not being in jail doesn’t necessarily mean being totally free, either.
