Bill Cosby Compares Himself to Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Says Judge Was Corrupt and District Attorney “Low Life”

Share

Andrew Wyatt, Bill Cosby’s PR rep, has sent out this statement from Cosby regarding a report on NBC 10 in Philadelphia about Cosby’s incarceration:

“I heard about Ms. Coleman’s (NBC 10) interview from the residents here. Here’s why I, [Mr. Cosby] have “no” remorse and will never have remorse. I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth – never charged. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations. They say, Mr. Cosby you must attend these classes. Why? One word. Entrapment! My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron. So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners – Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis. I stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The Truth is Strong!” Bill Cosby”

This is a response to a report on NBC 10 in which Cosby was said not be to be remorseful for his attacks on women including Andrea Costand.
