Editorial: 'America's Dad' is a deviant

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - I have made it known in several editorials that as far as I am concerned, there is no room in any society for any type of sexual assault.  Sexual assault is a deviant behavior committed by individuals who suffer from a sickness.

Sometimes these deviants are people of wealth, prestige and have in many situations gotten away with their unlawful actions.  Last week one of them did not get away.  No matter how wealthy and famous he is, the jury found Bill Cosby guilty on three separate counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby has continued to claim his innocence, but it is quite apparent he is likely going to spend time in prison.  He was found guilty on three counts of sexual assault, and yet over 55 women over the years have come forward claiming they were victims of his sick behavior.

How pathetic can one be…once considered "America's Dad" Bill Cosby, who is married, found it necessary to drug women's drinks to knock them out just to have sex with them.  These victims in most cases were aware of what was taking place and yet due to the drug could do nothing to stop it. This activity went on for years, but finally the voices of his victims were heard.

After the appeal process I sense Mr. Cosby will learn his potential cell mates don't need narcotics to get what they want from him.
