Bill Cosby's lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss his criminal case based on an alleged agreement made with the prosecutor's office back in 2005. H...
Twitter polls have become all the rage and I am continuing to take full advantage of them each week by boldly engaging the public on current events and some of the greater dilemmas of our time.

Thursday's Fox Business News Republican presidential debate in Charleston will likely overshadow Sunday's Democratic debate in that same city.
Even suggesting that Bill Cosby is a "victim" will raise the ire of many readers. But he is not really the "victim." He's simply the precedent -- a sad and problematic precedent.
People are finally acknowledging the need for reform and hopefully changes come about sooner than later. But, perhaps in the meantime, we can take the initiative to stop blaming and criminalizing Black bodies in death that were already dehumanized in life.
For women looking on and considering the first woman president, as the cable airwaves and social media rehash the sordid sexual drama of an American marriage, it's a reminder of what it took for Hillary Clinton to make it out of the shadows of her husband.
Rape culture is so pervasive in our society that we don't even notice it, because it's in our music, and we buy it, and buy into it, and goddammit if we don't love it! We needed video evidence of R. Kelly raping a girl, and we still didn't believe it.
Camille Cosby was scheduled to appear yesterday in a deposition relating to a lawsuit against her husband, Bill Cosby.

Clearly, I'd be happier if there weren't over 45 women alleging that this superstar drugged and raped them -- but what's going on in the civil and criminal cases against the former Dr. Huxtable is heartening for those of us in the legal world.
Last week's indictment represents hope for Bill Cosby's more than 50 victims -- hope that justice is possible even decades later. Justice that every survivor deserves.
Sexual assault often disempowers survivors and steals our voice and humanity. When we are able to reclaim the pieces of us that were desecrated, such as our trust, joy, hope, faith, and sense of safety, then that is an aspect of justice.
One of the most critical questions will be whether the prosecutors can present evidence relating to the many other accusations made against Cosby by other women. The judge's ruling on this issue may end up being the turning point in the case.
I have a tendency to dismiss the screw-ups of black people on the basis of bad behavior justified by the psychological impacts of the historical ill-treatment of blacks in America. For a good portion of my life I had a pretty solid argument until in walked Bill Cosby and his multitude of accusers. Dang it.
Timing is working in Trump's favor again.
