Judicial Usurpation?

After the jurors in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial informed the judge that they were deadlocked, and the judge sent them back for more deliberation, the entertainer’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt declared it a win.

“Today we have really seen Mr. Cosby get the justice he was looking for,” he told reporters.

But the case is not over, even if the jury deadlock is a signal of sharp disagreement over Cosby’s guilt or innocence. He is facing three aggravated indecent assault charges involving accuser Andrea Constand. If convicted, he could be sentenced up to 10 years on each count.

There is several problems with this matter that make me very uncomfortable. Of the first part, let’s just have a look at who this person is, shall we? For those of you who openly know me, moreover, for all those who don’t, I do not mean to be insensitive to the plight of any human being who feels they have been wronged. Everyone, according to our Constitution, will get their chance, or in this case a shot at Dr. William Cosby. Yet, if that is a person’s wish, let’s make sure that we are completely correct in all of our assumptions.
