    Why Isn't Bill Cosby Behind Bars?

    Is it because he is rich?

    It is very tempting to wonder about this and feel disgust and anger at the fact that Cosby had a very long, horrendous history as a sick, demented sexual predator.  Yet we see him free and as yet held responsible for any of his crimes.
    The main reason of course is that the vast majority of his rapes took place so many years ago.  Unlike murder, rape does have a statute of limitations.  This Cosby outrage should encourage our lawmakers to change this.  A crime is a crime is a crime.  What difference should it make how long ago a crimes was committed?  The pain & suffering & repercussions are lifelong.
    He's just recently been ordered to court based on charges from one woman.  At least this shows some justice.  His wealth will certainly "help" him.  Haven't we seen that this is always the way? 
    He's pretty old too.  We may have to settle for his punishment for so many egregious actions against women to be the loss of his fame and the respect & admiration of fans.  The man has destroyed his life.  His legacy has turned to crap.

    The main reason is that the liberals haven't been able to totally take away all the protection of the US Constitution. They apply a different standard for Hillary Clinton than they do Bill Cosby. Hillary has current and recent issues, while Bill Cosby's issues are old.

    Why are the people becoming the mob, as they want to hang Cosby without the benefit of a trial? Is that what the liberals have done to the US.

    Where is the Presumption of Innocence?
    Where is the Trial?
    When did the media and the people become the judge, jury and executioner?

    To even pose this as a valid question, lacks the understanding of why America is different than most countries.
