In the wake of Bill Cosbys conviction on three counts of sexual assault last month, his wife, Camille Cosby, has issued a lengthy statement defending her husband. In the nearly 800-word statement, she compares Bill Cosbys accusers to Emmett Tills accuser, chastises the media, and calls the district attorney offices campaign unethical.
Camille Cosbys statement:
We the people are the first three words of our nations Constitution, but who were those people in 1787? Dr. Howard Zinn, the renowned, honest historian, states in his best selling book, A Peoples History of the United States: The majority of the 55 men who framed the Constitution were men of wealth in land, slaves, manufacturing or shipping. Clearly, most people were not included in that original draft of the Constitution; no women, Native Americans, poor white men; and, absolutely, no enslaved Africans. What have the masses of people done who are treated as outcasts by we the people? They, through the purity of the unceasing human spirit, forced 27 amendments to the Constitution that have guaranteed fundamental rights to all people finally doing what the framers should have done in 1787. Now enters an American citizen, Bill Cosby. The overall media, with their frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee due process and equal protection, and thereby eliminated the possibility of a fair trial and unbiased jury. Bill Cosby was labelled as guilty because the media and accusers said so period. And the media ensured the dissemination of that propaganda by establishing barricades preventing the dissemination of the truth in violation of the protections of the First Amendment. Are the media now the peoples judges and juries? Since when are all accusers truthful? History disproves that for example, Emmett Tills accuser immediately comes to mind. In 1955, she testified before a jury of white men in a Mississippi courtroom that a 14-year-old African American boy had sexually assaulted her, only to later admit several decades later in 2008 that her testimony was false. A more recent example is the case of Darryl Hunt, an African American who in 1984 was wrongfully convicted for the rape and murder of a white woman, only to have DNA evidence establish in 1994 that he did not commit the crime. Nonetheless he was held in prison until 2004, serving almost twenty years behind bars, until the true rapist confessed to the crimes.
These are just two of many tragic instances of our justice system utterly and routinely failing to protect African Americans falsely accused in so-called courts of law and the entirely unfair court of public opinion. In the case of Bill Cosby, unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs, who publicly and privately coerced cancellations of Bill Cosbys scheduled performances; syndications of The Cosby Show; rescissions of honorary degrees and a vindictive attempt to close an exhibition of our collection of African American art in the Smithsonian Museum of African Art. Although the Smithsonians hierarchy did not capitulate, a disclaimer was posted on the exterior of that Museum. And all of that occurred before the trial even started.
The worst injustices, however, have been carried out in the Pennsylvania Montgomery County Courthouse. Three criminal charges, promised during an unethical campaign for the district attorneys office, were filed against my husband all based on what I believe to be a falsified account by the newly elected district attorneys key witness. I firmly believe her recent testimony during trial was perjured; as was shown at trial, it was unsupported by any evidence and riddled with innumerable, dishonest contradictions. Moreover, Bill Cosbys defense team introduced the testimony of a witness who confirmed that the district attorneys witness admitted that she had not been sexually assaulted, but that she could say she was and get money which is exactly what she did.
I am publicly asking for a criminal investigation of that district attorney and his cohorts. This is a homogeneous group of exploitive and corrupt people, whose primary purpose is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosbys life. If they can do this to Mr. Cosby, they can do so to anyone. How much longer will we, the majority of the people, tolerate judicial, executive, legislative, media and corporate abuses of power? We, the majority of the people, must make America what it has declared itself to be .a democracy not to be destroyed by vicious, lying, self-absorbed paradigms of evilness. Once again, an innocent person has been found guilty based on an unthinking, unquestioning, unconstitutional frenzy propagated by the media and allowed to play out in a supposed court of law.
This is mob justice, not real justice. This tragedy must be undone not just for Bill Cosby, but for the country. I wish to thank the witnesses who courageously came forward at trial to testify as to the truth, as well as those witnesses who would have done so but for the judge preventing them from testifying. Someday the truth will prevail, it always does.
enablers much like their idol hillary
She should be embarrassed
This was mob justice, and event that would not have happened if Cosby had simply kept his head down and stayed on The Liberal Plantation.
But no, he had to get all uppity and go around telling everyone that Black men should stay around and help raise their children.
The end result was inevitable.
Meanwhile, those who are still on The Plantation are still doing what they are doing.
Proof that wealth and power begets evil
IIRC, Camille Cosby also blamed Whites for the murder of their son, Ennis. It turned out to be a Russian, so White, but it was a crime of opportunity. Not racism.
Nice try Camille.
Emmett Till was over 60 years ago. If you can’t come up with something better, then don’t you see that the country has changed? Let it go. Cosby got a fair trial, with a high-priced lawyer. A jury of his peers found him guilty on all counts. That’s justice. That’s America today.
It’s not Mississippi in 1955 anymore. Get over it.
Plenty of stupid to go around.
6 decades ? That’s about as long as Camille has been serving as an enabler for a sex predator RAPIST husband.
All my wealth and power and publicity couldn’t get my husband off like OJ and now I’m going to play the race card.*
He’s also been a well known playah at the Hefner mansion since the early 60s.
Lots of weird in this story but any woman that thought he was Dr Huxtable is a damn fool.
Funny how she doesn’t mention the OJ Trial...
>Plenty of stupid to go around.
Indeed! What a gorbellied malmsey-nosed flax-wench
Funny how, in all those words, there’s no, “He didn’t do it.”
I think that the part buried the middle about cancellation of The Cosby Show syndication is the real source of her rage.
And I find it odd that you slip a Rohr 714 or 2 in a drink unnoticed.
I find having to drug women when yer rich and famous even odder.
God will sort this out.
Oh, Dear. Wild guess, but I’m betting one of the kids see their inheritance going down the drain and using Mom as a puppet. Odd Zinn reference.... I’m guessing a 50 year old that got a crappy I AM A Victim univ brainwashing... Hmm mm. Will look into the kids now, for a giggle. BTW, everybody knew he was a dirt bag. Did like some of the common sense stuff, there....but he was a dirt bag.
Well, that escalated quickly.
What a ridiculous, racist, worthless b*tch.
Her husband is a serial raptist and should have been locked up decades ago.
Even when her son was murdered by a Russian immigrant in California, this loon Camille said, “America taught him how to hate.”
Meanwhile, America made her family wealthy beyond belief to the tune of $400 million+. If she hates America so much, she should move to *hithole Africa. See how long her pathetic butt lasts over there.
