Bill Cosby shared his oddly content, but more importantly, remorseless first public statement to NBC10 from prison. The man was once deemed ‘America’s Dad’. But now, the 81 year old has been declared a sexually violent predator by a Pennsylvania judge. Cosby refers to himself as a victim of ‘entrapment’ carried out by a ‘low-life attorney’ and ‘corrupt judge’.
He stated: “My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron. So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners – Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis. I stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I smile.”

What’s More Disturbing? No Remorse, Or Likening To Mandela?
If you can recall, Cosby was convicted in April 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand inside his Pennsylvania home. The assault happened in 2004, and Constand had reported it to the police a year after. The Montgomery Count District Attorney declined to press charges until a decade later when the case re-opened. Despite the sentencing of 3 to 10 years behind bars, Cosby still remains that he has “done nothing wrong”.
More than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them over a period of five decades. However, he still sticks to the claim that women lie and he has nothing to be sorry for. Cosby’s legal team has repeatedly sought to appeal his sentence but not once, have they been successful. A legal system, however, sometimes disappointing, is put into place to prove ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ that a crime has been committed. That’s the bottom line here. He was found guilty. No one is above the law, no matter what their status is.
