Bill Cosby Speaks From Prison for the First TimeNEWSER) – Bill Cosby's name grabbed headlines Tuesday after rep Andrew Wyatt said in an interview with NBC 10 that the 81-year-old told him he was having an "amazing" prison experience. More headlines came on Wednesday, this time thanks to words that came straight from Cosby. NBC News reports it was his first statement since entering Pennsylvania's SCI Phoenix four months ago, and it begins by explaining he heard about the NBC 10 interview from fellow inmates. He says he has no remorse and never will. "I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars [sic]; 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."
Honestly, I thought Cosby's money would keep him out of prison.
He doesn't seem the least bit repentant. I don't expect that to change.
If scandals or criminal charges force Chump out of office or pose the prospect of incarceration, I don't expect Chump to become repentant either.
President Nixon's hatchet man, Charles Colson, prior to incarceration had a "grab 'em by the balls... and their hearts and minds will follow" philosophy. That changed in prison. He founded Colson Ministries.
