For All Points-Of-The-View.

Through all the fame and people in everyone's home on television, one of the most loved men in the world was sent to prison. Do you think his prison sentence was justice? How do you feel things should have gone?

William Henry Cosby Jr. is an American stand-up comedian, actor, musician, author, and now a convicted sex offender. That is a hard title to add to your belt if you were in his shoes.

His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.

The maximum sentence for each of the three counts is 10 years, or 30 years in total, meaning the 80-year-old Cosby, who is legally blind and in poor health, could spend the end of his life in prison. Do you really think this is fair judgement?

No matter how we look at it, Bill Cosby help raised our children through television. What Bill did was inexcusable. Seriously, he was a big star, he could have gotten laid without drugging women. Problem is, he was messing with women who were already drug addicted.

The two reasons for prisons is(one) to punish criminals and two) to protect the population from criminals. So here you have an eighty-year-old blind man. I have a hard time imaging what sort of threat he can be to the public. So that leaves us with his incarceration being solely for punishment which I understand makes some people happy.

The primary reason for prison is to isolate the criminals out of society. Even though it’s too late. But among the primary reasons for prison is it keep revenge from happening.

Leave your thoughts below on if you feel his punishment was too harsh. Should Cosby be freed? Or is he best being left behind bars?

This is America! A country that has bore false witnesses against people of color since the emancipation proclamation. White Women especially against my brothers. Now if Mr. Cosby had raped all those women, considering his wealth and the fact that he is a Black Man  do you seriously believe that any one of them would have allowed 50 years to go by before they nailed him to the cross? And why not ??? if they were not willing to have sex with him,get drugs from him to boost their own careers. This shit is nothing new. Your first lady did the same thing. It's what they do.  Personally, I will give my brother the benefit of doubt. And until all of our ancestors who were raped and beaten by white men are given justice, as well as those who go missing even today ,and those being raped while incarcerated, I will stand my ground on this issue. Mr. Cosby was not judged by a jury of his peers, and no, I do not believe any of his accusers were innocent victims.

The fact is that more than just one or two women said that they were raped by Bill Cosby.  Are we to discount 50 women who say that?

Comment by Delores Vickers on Sunday

As long as we as a people, continue on this road of divide and conquer, we will Never be judged by a jury of "our" peers.  STOP pretending America is just one big old melting pot with Justice being served as the main ingredient. Clearly no one is that blind today.

No...We need to get Facts before accusations are being thrown around and stop getting behind white folk and their agendas. Black women ought to know better.

Comment by Anne M Jennings See on Saturday

We need to stop supporting Black men who injure and violate Black women and girls just because they are Black men.  If they are found to be guilty, they must be punished. It would be nice if the Black community could punish them instead of leaving them to the so-called justice of the white man, but that's not happening.  Are you going to say that those girls lied about R. Kelly too?

Right On @ Mel Wade!

It is funny how fast we as black people have allowed white folks to change the narrative in our minds in adducing allegations that are not only false but were unproven by their own system of jurisprudence. With this change of narrative now firmly placed in our minds, we now have accepted brother Bill Cosby as a convicted felon, this is truly a sad occurrence on our part.  All of the irregular procedures and bias of the judge, the prosecutor, the state of Pennsylvania and the white women liberation lead "me to" movement were brought to bear and simply steamrolled brother Cosby on the bogus charges that were placed on him. Can we as black people not see the forest for the tree?

Comment by Anne M Jennings See on Thursday
My answer is yes. What he did was inexcusable, and he needed to be punished for it. Also, Miller Time, please learn some English grammar.

Comment by Delores Vickers on Thursday

My answer is absolutely NOT!   This "Justice come lately" In my opinion, is just another tactic used by this system to punish our people for being Black!  For example, they elect a dumb ass perv to the highest office in the land, who has live a criminal life since birth, but who happens to be white!  I think real justice would be served(since they want to prosecute an 80 year old Blackman) over the b.s. coming from an washed up, old, ugly ass white gold digger...America needs to remember all of the old white men who raped sisters and their children and incarcerate all of their damn descendents. Now THAT would be real justice!
