Newly-Released Bill Cosby Deposition Reveals A Slew Of Questionable Quotes

Court documents from 2005 and 2006 find Bill Cosby divulging new details about his sexual encounters.

The details surrounding another Bill Cosby deposition finds the once-beloved comedian in hot water yet again. In a report by The New York Times, 10-year-old court documents find the actor speaking his piece against Andrea Constand, a basketball manager at Cosby’s Temple University alma mater. Constand argued that Cosby drugged and molested her, leading to a round of questioning at the Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Hotel back in 2005 and 2006.

The report describes Cosby as “an unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women.” Claiming to have given Constand one and a half Benadryl pills on the night in question, Cosby also offered details regarding keeping the affair from his wife Camille, as well as a conversation with Constand’s mother following the ordeal. He served as Constand’s mentor, describing his role to include “inviting her to my house, talking to her about personal situations dealing with her life, growth, education.”

While denying that he drugged Constand, Cosby also admitted in the latest deposition to procuring Quaaludes with the intentions to have sex with women he gave them to. Revealing seven prescriptions in total, the comedian said he told the doctor they were for back pain, but that he kept the party drug around “just in case.” When confronted by Constand’s mother about their tryst, to which the woman says was unconsented, Cosby implored Constand to “Tell your mother about the orgasm.”

During the deposition, Cosby also discussed sexual relationships with at least five other women, one whom he admitted to inquiring about her father’s cancer in an effort to have sex with her. Thirteen other women contributed anonymous statements. Read a few quotes from Cosby below:

- “I take her hair and I pull it back and I have her face like this,” he said. “And I’m talking to her ...And I talked to her about relaxing, being strong. And I said to her, come in, meaning her body.”

- “I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again. She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them.”

- “I think you’re making light of a very serious situation,” she said, to which Mr. Cosby replied: “That may very well be.”

- “I am a man, the only way you will hear about who I had sex with is from the person I had it with.”
Q:Why is that?
A: “When I was a boy it was a thing that girls used to say, please don’t tell anybody. But it is something that I’ve learned as you grow older that they’re the first people to go and tell somebody after something has happened.”
- Q. Do you know if any of the rendezvous happened in New York City?
 A: "I don’t remember."
Q: How did it end with her?
A: "Stopped calling for rendezvous."
Q: You stopped?
A: "Yes."
Q: Why?
A: "Just moving on."
Q: What does that mean?
A: "Don’t want to see her anymore."

Q. She says that she stayed with you and that you began talking about her career and asking about her father who had died of cancer. Does any of that ring a bell with you?
A: "Yes."
Q: Do you remember talking about that?
A: "Yes."
Q: Do you remember what else you talked about?
A: "That’s enough."
Q: Did you ask her those questions because you wanted to have sexual contact with her
A: "Yes."

- “[The act of sexual intercourse] is something that I feel the woman will succumb to more of a romance and more of a feeling, not love, but it’s deeper than a playful situation.”

- “What was happening at that time was that that was -- Quaaludes happen to be the drug that kids, young people were using to party with and there were times when I wanted to have them just in case.”
Q. Why didn’t you ever take the Quaaludes?
A. “Because I used them.”
Q: For what?
A: “The same as a person would say have a drink.”

- My wife would not know it was because Andrea and I had had sex and that Andrea was now very, very upset and that she decided that she would like to go to school or whatever it is. We can get back on track.

“I think Andrea is a liar and I know she’s a liar because I was there. I was there.”

Breonna Taylor’s Mother Speaks Out After Cops Who Killed Her Daughter Get Off Without Charges

Breonna Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, says the system failed her daughter. Palmer posted a painting portrait of Taylor on Instagram on Wednesday (Sept. 23) which she hashtagged, #ThesystemfailedBreonna.

The Instagram post serves as her first public response to a grand jury failing to bring charges against three Louisville police officers for killing Taylor. On Thursday (Sept. 24), Palmer shared a photo of a woman carrying a sign with the Bible verse: “It’s wrong to favor the guilty and keep the innocent from getting justice.”

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron held a press conference on Wednesday where he announced that no charges would be brought against Louisville officers Jonathan Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove, and Brett Hankison for killing Taylor. Hankison was the only one among the three to be charged, but not for Taylor’s death.

In an interview with NPR last week, Palmer expressed her hope that charges would be brought against the officers. “I’m hoping to hear that there will be charges,” she said at the time. “That these people will be fired and arrested.” Hakinson is the only one of the three officers to be fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department after Taylor’s death.

Speaking to her daughter’s character, Palmer stated that the 26-year-old emergency room tech was a “beautiful person inside and out.” She pointed out that Taylor “kept saying that 2020 was her year.”

“And she was absolutely right,” said Palmer. “I hate that it came in that form, but it definitely is her year.”

Kodak Black Wants Donald Trump To Get Him Out Of Prison

Kodak Black is asking Donald Trump to help him get out of prison. Lawyers for the Florida rapper sent a petition to Trump this week, in hopes of getting his sentence commuted.

The 23-year-old recording artists took a plea deal and was sentenced to 46 months in prison on federal weapons possession charges last year. He was originally locked up in Miami but was “erroneously” transferred to Kentucky’s Big Sandy maximum-security federal prison. Kodak’s lawyers argue that he deserves to be housed in lower security facility, TMZ reports.

The petition reportedly suggests that Kodak received a harsher sentence compared to the average sentence (18 months) for the same conviction. Bradford Cohen, one of Kodak’s lawyers, has ties to Trump as a former contestant on the President’s cancelled reality show, The Apprentice.

“This week we filed a commutation of sentence with the President of the United States,” Cohen wrote on Instagram on Thursday (Sept. 24). “The fact that a non-violent paperwork offense by an individual who is not a convicted felon, [received] 46 months and was sent to a max security prison, 1100 miles from his [home] who has been in the bix on 23 hour lock down since September 2019, with no visitation, no programs and no phone privileges is not justice. Where BOP [Bureau of Prisons] made a significant error in his designation paperwork.

“The treatment coupled with the actual crime calls for true justice to intervene and say enough is enough. Individuals similarly situated received significantly less time. We are asking for what is fair.”

Kodak’s legal issues have been mounting since he was arrested for allegedly raping an 18-year-old high school student in his South Carolina hotel room in 2016. In 2019, prosecutors charged him with first-degree criminal conduct in connection with the rape case. Earlier this year, Kodak pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possessions of a firearm after being found with a weapon at the Canadian-American border. He received a 12-month sentence to run concurrently with his federal prison sentence.

The “ZeZe” rapper, who legally changed his name to Bill Kapri and identifies as a Hebrew Israelite, is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture and abuse. Kodak claims that prison guards jumped him when he first got to Big Sandy, routinely humiliated and assaulted him more than once, and blocked him from visits with a rabbi despite other prisoners receiving time with clergy members. In another alleged incident, Kodak claims that he was forced to wear an open-back hospital gown for more than six hours while being put into a four-point restraint until he urinated and defecated on himself while guards laughed and cracked jokes.

As previously reported, a grand jury decided not to charge officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove for killing Taylor during a police raid. Hankinson, a former officer of the Louisville Metro Police Department, faces three counts of wanton endangerment, but the charges were not related to Taylor being killed.

Collin Kaepernick also took to Twitter with a few thoughts: “The white supremacist institution of policing that stole Breonna Taylor’s life from us must be abolished for the safety and well being of our people.”
