    Sexual predators have a friend in PA’s Supreme Court which overturns Cosby conviction

    SEE: Bill Cosby freed after US court quashes sex crimes conviction

    “US comedian Bill Cosby was freed from prison Wednesday, in a blow to the #MeToo movement, after a US court overturned his conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman 15 years ago.”

    It’s saddening how those entrusted to uphold the “rule of law”, have not only used their positions of power to “legislate from the bench” and make our laws mean what they want them to mean as happened in Bostock v. Clayton County, 590 U.S., where the majority on the court used the Humpty Dumpty theory of language to make the word “sex”, as found in the 1964 Civil Rights Act, mean what they wanted it to mean, but now these scoundrels are shown to use their position of public trust to overturn a conviction of a sexual predator who took liberty of sixty women.
    Let us remember the definition of tyranny, as defined by one of our founding fathers.

    ”The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands [e.g., our judicial system] . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” ___ Madison, Federalist Paper No. 47

    As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances there is a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air - however slight - lest we become unwitting victims of darkness.___Supreme Court Justice William Douglas

    When I was studying law, I was taught to always read dissenting opinions, which, on many occasions, shed light on important subject matter. In this case, JUSTICE DOUGHERT eloquently confirms the majority’s opinion to bar further prosecution is wrong!

    “. . . we can return him [Cosby] to the position he enjoyed prior to being forced to surrender his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination by simply suppressing the evidence derived from the civil depositions at which he testified. We should not use Castor’s “blunder” to place Cosby in a better position than he otherwise would have been in by forever barring his prosecution. “So drastic a step” merely “increase[s] to an intolerable degree interference with the public interest in having the guilty brought to book.” Blue, 384 U.S. at 255.6”

    The Equality Act, if imposed upon the people as a federal “rule of law”, would not only subvert the human right of American citizens to be free to mutually agree in their social and commercial activities ___ it would allow our federal bureaucrats to dictate almost every aspect of the American peoples’ social and commercial activities.
