Late in 2014 and early this year I commented on the allegations leveled against Bill Cosby. I argued that he should be treated as innocent until proven guilty. As it turns out, Bill Cosby has admitted his guilt. Mea culpa, I was defending a guilty man.
Or was I? I was only arguing that the presumption of innocence until proven guilty is the modus of the legal system in the West. Jumping to the conclusion that he was guilty of these terrible things before his day in court was wrong. I made no assumption of his guilt or innocence. I stand by my initial suggestions.
Unfortunately for Bill Cosby not many people are going to continue to stand by him now that he's admitted that he got sedative drugs for women so that he could then have sex with them. That is shameful and from the sound of his admission, felonious.
