Dr. Cosby Faces The Witch’s Dilemma: How Do You Defend Yourself Against Imaginary Crimes

Witch Cartoon

Over 50 people have publicly accused Dr. William H. Cosby of crimes ranging from attempted murder to rape to sexual abuse to drugging (using blue pills, red pills, a pill, quaaludes, alcoholic drinks,  wine, champagne, vodka, beer, bourbon, scotch, coke, coffee, and cappuccino, to rough kissing. touching a right breast,  and hugging (sexual harassment). The two things that these reports have in common is that virtually all the accusing women made these accusations after hearing and seeing in the mass media that others had made similar reports and none of them went to the police in a timely manner. The average wait between alleged incident and public reporting was approximately 35 years.

How do you defend yourself against charges that you gave somebody a drug 35 years ago. How do you defend yourself against charges that you touched somebody or raped somebody 35 years ago?

Ordinarily, you would examine the people charging you in a legal setting and prove that they are either falsely remembering incidents, or lying due to mental illness or for profit.

Unfortunately, Dr. Cosby does not have to fight against just his accusers, but he has to face an entire industry that is dedicated to promoting imaginary crimes. This industry has spent more than 30 years creating false statistics to prove that imaginary sexual crimes are real crimes and they are everywhere. Sex crimes exist, but people can be made to imagine sex crimes too.

It is a billion dollar a year industry supported by the Justice Department of the United States Government and  by numerous private entrepreneurs (mostly lawyers who own so called non-profit (but actually quite profitable) “rape clinics.”). Dr. Cosby is their chosen target and their industry cannot progress without his conviction.

This is a David and Goliath battle. We must remember that David is fighting for all of us.
