He faces additional charges in Los Angeles as well, so time may be added. His doctors say he won't last 5 years in jail in his condition.

Armo has made his apathy towards rape and murder well-known. But God fucking forbid you use a word that he deems to be "ableist." Priorities.

I guess this is Armoreska’s staunch prison abolitionist beliefs kicking into gear…not even known rapists should be behind bars, I guess. Very black and white in his beliefs, no room for nuance.

Um an 83 year man has already "served" 3 years which was his sentence and has been dragged thru the mud for 4 years before that. But that aint enough for some of our staunch punishers and radical feminists.
OK maybe y'all want to keep him well protected to save him from the enraged mob.

I mean, he was guilty as fuck and admitted as much (though in his mind what he did wasn't rape). In fact, the reason his sentence was vacated was because they ruled that his admission was inadmissible at trial. If you think 3 years in prison for an 83 year old is inappropriate I don't really feel like debating that, it's plausible position. But I can't be arsed to give a fuck about "dragged thru the mud for 4 years" for someone who is guilty without a doubt and your complaint about "radical feminists" makes me doubt that this is solely about the prison-industrial complex from which a wealthy famous man was largely insulated.

Yeah the guy is a serial rapist. Maybe what you are saying is, since he is 83 years old now he is unlikely to be drugging and raping anyone new?

You think he spent his time in the VIP lounge of that Pennsylvania prison?
But I can't be arsed to give a fuck about
being worldwide publicly disgraced is good enough for me.
your complaint about "radical feminists"
yeah i doubt we have any. that's the group most likely to want to keep rapists in prisons. hold up, I'll go ask their opinion.

He's the same guy who keeps lists of "feminist" films, yet he has made it perfectly clear that he is, at worst, indifferent to rape. Sure, Jan. At this point, I expect he's nothing more than a committed troll.

I think that one of the last times we (i.e., people on the forum) got into a pro-rape vs. anti-rape argument, I ended up bullying a couple people off the forum. To which I say, good riddance. But on the plus side, I've decided to use the "Ignored Users" functionality on the forum for the first time, so I have that going for me, which is nice.

Overturning Bill Cosby sex assault conviction is difficult to accept, but the right decision

https://news.yahoo.com/overturning-bill ... 47188.html

key excerpts
The recent decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is an important reminder about the role and the importance of the prosecutor in this country. The American Bar Association states that the job of the prosecutor is actually "not merely to convict" but to see that justice is done. It is a noble profession, which comes with important responsibilities.

Even a bad deal is a deal
When I served as a prosecutor, one idea that was repeatedly emphasized was “word is bond.” Whether you made a great offer or a bad one, you had to stick to your word.

Even before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision, courts have recognized that with prosecutorial discretion comes immense power. For example, a police officer can use tricks to deceive during an investigation but if a prosecutor deceives, all can be lost. When prosecutors engage in plea bargaining with people accused of crime and their lawyers, the statements cannot be used against the accused. When one prosecutor makes a deal, even if it is a bad deal, it’s supposed to be honored. The prosecutor is important and the words of the prosecutor matter, whether those words are in writing or not.
Cases involving sexual violence are always challenging to prosecute. Former prosecutor Bruce Castor made a deal. Cosby then made some shocking admissions during his deposition that he likely would not have made if it weren’t for the mutual understanding that his only exposure was a civil lawsuit. In other words, Cosby and his lawyers trusted the word of the prosecutor. The incriminating deposition was a “but for” result of the deal made with Castor. Using that deposition against Cosby at his trial was akin to tricking him into incriminating himself.
