    For 50 years victims have accused Cosby of being a rapist. As of May 29, 2015 there are 49 accusers and counting. Cosby has been accused of raping for 50 years, not just once 30 years ago. All research concludes Cosby may be the world’s most notorious “Sociopath International Serial Rapist”. He’s hiding in plain sight! Diplomatic Immunity! Governments at his bidding! JUSTICE DENIED! Defending the Indefensible; Rape Facts: 1) 98% of rape victims don’t lie. 2) 95% of rape crimes are never reported because victims fear rapist reprisal. 3) The 49 accusers may represent 5% of his victims. 4) It requires 2 confirmed victims to be a serial rapist. 5) 85% of serial rapists are guilty of incest and or murder.
    When anyone is above the law then there is no law for anyone. Governments and Courts everywhere share a fiduciary duty to prosecute accused serial rapists. How many victims were sacrificed and other crimes committed because prosecution was denied! Why! Wealth, Power and Politics! Many corrupt people in power censure factual comments and protect wealthy felons from prosecution. “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely”! What next, he’s incompetent! Social Justice mandates Cosby face due process. End this debate, bring closure for everyone. At the very least Cosby will be found innocent or be convicted a serial rapist.
    In a perfect world our heroes never disappoint us. We don’t live in a perfect world. Cosby an accused rapist has no one to blame but himself. Cosby owns this.
