I dont know this.
How is it with so many alledged victims, Cosby's still alive? What's the latest count? 30? 30 families of women drugged and raped and no one gives a **** enough to end him?

That's a lie. I've followed this thread spasmodically over the timeframe, and you've admitted that he's guilty of crimes against his victims.
You've also admitted that he knew exactly what he was doing in administering drugs to his victims.
If you're going to deny it now, it's quite easy to find your posts on this.
I have changed my mind.
Others are flat out lying, most of the accusers are lying.
That's an opinion, Hawk. You're doing the judgeandjury trip here.

Welcome to the Hawkeye show.
Perhaps you should schedule a lobotomy,
Welcome to witnessing a citizen actually fulfilling his duties as a citizen.
Welcome to witnessing a citizen actually fulfilling his duties as a citizen. And you thing you are going to make me feel guilty for that? Perhaps you should schedule a lobotomy, because you clearly are afflicted with insanity.
the only question is how trangressive was he
Judge Rebreno cites Cosby's infamous 2004 "pound cake" speech as evidence of the comedian's belief in himself as a moral authority.
In 1971, Cosby recorded an album called For Adults Only. In this skit, he mines for laughs the well-worn trope of a father who worries over his daughter's future dating prospects because he remembers what a creep he was to other people's daughters in his youth. "I'm beginning to hate men," he quips, "because I know men. They're basically filthy and nasty and dirty. I know that. I used to be a man, before I got married."
The 1987 film Angel Heart marked the first public clash between Cosby Show actress Lisa Bonet and her onscreen dad. In this Ebony magazine cover story, Bill Cosby makes several paternalistic comments about Bonet's decision to appear in the psychological horror flick, including a rather smug dismissal of the film itself, stating that he hadn't seen it because "That film doesn't offer my appetite anything." That same year, to promote the film, Bonet appeared nude on the cover of Interview magazine. When asked his opinion on this (itself a strange and awkward interviewing choice), Cosby said that after he'd heard negative comments from several people about the image, "I just took it nice and easy and then one day I saw it on the newsstand and I bought the magazine. I looked at that picture and I said, 'There's nothing wrong with it.' It wasn't anything gross."
During The Cosby Show's eight-season run, Cliff Huxtable established himself as a father who preferred grilling his daughters' suitors about their sexual activity rather than talking to the daughters themselves.
In this much earlier episode of the show, Cliff counsels a sexually active girl (Stacey Dash) to be open and candid with her parents about her physical choices and concerns. Cliff hand-wrings over how he'd hope his own children would come to him, no matter what
Cosby's own daughter, Erinn, claims that she came to him with an accusation that boxer Mike Tyson attempted to rape her in 1989, and that Cosby convinced Tyson to commit to psychological counseling in lieu of pressing charges. Tyson reportedly agreed to the counseling – but in this 1992 clip on the Donahue show, Erinn admits that she doesn't believe Tyson ever followed through. The interview is disturbing on a few levels: For one, Bill Cosby is praised for "using his influence" to negotiate this counseling deal, even though if Tyson never got counseling, nothing at all was done to hold him accountable for the alleged sexual assault he committed.
In a 1969 Playboy interview, Cosby talked about how he planned to leave show business to become a teacher because poor kids lack good role models. "I plan to teach in a junior high school, which is where kids become glandularly aware of being male and female," he said. "Early adolescence is a very difficult time of life for ghetto kids, because people to look up to, like I said earlier, are scarce in a poor neighborhood. . .I'd want to show kids there are black heroes to be proud of, so they have a different kind of cat to look up to.
So many of Cosby's discussions of drug use include commentary about lack of awareness of a drug's effects or harm,
Cosby won a best recording for children grammy in 1972. for this spoken-word album about the perils of drug use, featuring tracks like "Bill Talks About Pushers," "People Make Mistakes," and "I Know I Can Handle It."
When Cosby's own daughter struggled with drug addiction in the 1980s, he called her selfish. In a 1989 interview with the LA Times, he defended his "tough love" approach in response to her battle:
"This particular daughter appears to be the only one who is really very selfish. It isn't that we hang our heads or that we're embarrassed by this, because we've been living with this person who knows that her problem isn't cocaine or alcohol. I think that she's a child who has refused to take responsibility for supporting herself. . . She never finishes anything. She uses her boyfriends. She wants the finer things but she can't stand anybody else's dirt, which is important. Developmentally, she's still around 11 years old. The problem isn't alcohol or drugs – at the rehab center her urine showed up negative. It's behavioral. She's very stubborn."
1989 is the same year Erinn talked to her father about the Mike Tyson encounter.
In this televised "call-out" from 2006, Cosby first asks for the families of gun violence victims to state the names of their deceased loved ones, then reclaims the podium to chastise the audience for their silence in the face of crime: "I just want all of you to understand that this is not that difficult. Somebody somehow has talked you into keeping your mouth shut." He continues changing the subject from silence on crime to silence on teen sexual activity: "You've got to speak up. You've got to take your 13-year-old daughters in a room – or 12 or 11, whatever the age is – and you've got to explain to them that they can't do this sexual thing. They can't afford it."
He did nothing to assist his daughter, he didn't go and beat this guy up, he didn't get angry, he blamed his daughter.
...but he is not a criminal.
“He had my hair; I don’t want to get graphic, but you know when you’re shocked you go, ‘Oh,’ you open your mouth a little bit, and that was my mistake,” Linda said. “And then he just made this horrible mess all over me.”

Afterward, Linda said, Cosby told the aspiring actress that he had “blessed” her.
“The hardest part was, he gloated over my humiliation. And he reached into his pocket, he had a big wad of Kleenex, and he started cleaning me up; he was dabbing at me,” Linda recalled. “By this time I’ve closed my eyes, because I really think I’m going to faint. And he said, ‘I’ve blessed you now, you know; you’ve been blessed.’
“And I remember thinking, ‘He must be crazy.'”
