"Bill Cosby Freed: Why His Sexual-Assault Convictions Were Thrown Out"

The National Review reported:

There is really no doubt that Cosby is guilty of being a sexual predator. The problem is that he was gulled into acknowledging this fact by a prosecutor, who had assured him that, the case against him being weak, he would not be charged. The hardest thing about being a prosecutor is that your two most basic responsibilities — proving the case and vindicating the accused’s constitutional protections — are in tension with each other. In this instance, the Pennsylvania prosecutors failed to respect the latter in pursuit of the former.

In a nutshell, relying on the assurance by the Montgomery County district attorney that he would not be prosecuted, Cosby agreed to testify in a civil case brought against him by Andrea Constand, then a Temple University employee whom he had sexually assaulted in 2004. Cosby made damaging admissions and paid a steep settlement.

Subsequently, political pressure to charge the actor had intensified because numerous women made similar allegations that he abused them. The alleged assaults followed a pattern in which Cosby would drug the women, rendering them unable to resist. Meantime, Montgomery County had gotten a new district attorney. In this spotlight, the new prosecutor reneged on his predecessor’s non-prosecution assurance. The state rationalized that, even if Cosby had in fact been assured of non-prosecution and had acted on that commitment to his detriment, a formal immunity agreement had not been perfected before a court.

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin

  Robert Barnes Retweeted Cerno @Cernovich “They lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us.” - attributed to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and while the sourcing isn’t confirmed, it’s certainly more accurate today than ever in the USSR. []
