COSBY SENTENCE NEEDS TO BE HARSH TO PUNISH APPROPRIATELY AND SEND A MESSAGE

In the current #Metoo moment, many have debated what constitutes sexual assault vs just being a creep.

What constitutes genuine harassment as opposed to social awkwardness.

Exactly where is the line of what is and what is not acceptable?

Well, regardless of your thoughts on any of that, there can be no debate in the case of former superstar comedian and actor Bill Cosby.

If you have not read through the entire list of allegations from the multiple women Farrow spoke to Cosby was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting, I highly suggest you do so, though I must warn you that it will be tough to get through without being completely horrified.

I truly hope Cosby — as well as Les Moonves and Harvey Weinstein— serve as warnings to men in power that none of what they have done in the past was ever acceptable, but now it is absolutely not going to be tolerated.

However, Weinstein to this day has yet to face criminal charges and we are yet to see how hasrshly the courts punish Cosby.

I truly hope both men — and others like them — are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Those who practice genuine sexual assault and genuine sexual harassment need to be destroyed and made to pay for their crimes.

Up until now, they largely have not been made to face the music.

As a result, women have been made to suffer severely.

And as a father of three daughters, that is a frightening thought.
