82-year-old Bill Cosby, who is spending the next several years in prison, gave an interview to BlackPressUSA (via CNN) in which he let them know that ba da ba ba bah–he’s loving it. Bill is doing his thing in jail and when it comes time for his parole hearing, he promises that you will not hear one ounce of remorse from him. He’s good with where things are, being charged and found guilty of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand. Bill and Camille Cosby know he didn’t do it, despite all the other women with similar stories of assault and also his charges for sexually assaulting an underage girl. But Bill’s good. His mind is at peace.
CNN says that because Bill is in prison serving 3 to 10 years, there’s time constraints on how long he can talk on the phone and the interview was done through the phone. So he had to call back several times. Bill just really wanted everyone to hear what he had to say. First, Bill said his conviction was “political” and a “set up”.
“It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters. Look at the woman who blew the whistle… Then she went in and came out smiling, it’s something attorneys will tell you is called a payoff… I know what they’ve done to my people. But my people are going to view me and say, “That boy looks good. That boy is strong.”...This is political. I can see the whole thing.”
Reminder: Bill technically won his first trial since the jury couldn’t decide, so it’s not like this was a swift situation where he got railroaded. Second reminder: Bill had originally settled with Andrea out of court for this years ago. Third reminder: Janice Dickinson got paid by his insurance company after he called her a liar for saying he assaulted her too.
Bill went on to talk about his conditions in his “penthouse”–which is how he refers to his cell–saying he assists the other inmates and has made a life for himself. Will he be remorseful come parole time? You better believe not! Why would he? He’s an innocent man accused by almost 60 women of similar crimes and a bunch of them have corroborating evidence–like Andrea’s police report from 2005–anyway…
“I have eight years and nine months left… When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”
Now he uses a prison reform program, Mann Up, to help others grow:
“I’ve got a wife and a family, and friends, not in prison, who are so happy that I have something, that my spirit is up… I go into my penthouse and I lay down and I start to think, now how can I repeat the message, and say it and give it to them on Saturday… so that they will hear and feel things.”
Please don’t go to prison to learn from Bill Cosby… what kind of rehabilitation is that?
Bill Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt–who was also on the phone with BlackPressUSA–told CNN that Bill:
“Feels that he is a privileged man in that prison. Because they cannot break him or his mind.”
I’m no expert in probation hearings, but it sounds to me like getting in front of the parole board and saying, “I HAVEN’T LEARNED FUCKING SHIT!“, is a smart move and I’m sure they’ll open the prison gates right open for Ole’ Bill. Sounds like a great plan! Bill should definitely teach a class in prison in How To Get Probation. He’s got the right idea!
