What are you supposed to do if you've enjoyed watching The Cosby Show? How can such a sin be reversed without dismembering your TV?

That's a good question. Rape is not funny. At times satire isn't either. Sometimes the most politically correct anti-death penalty supporter discovers their own vigilante spirit when sex abuse is involved. To persons so inclined, the only one way to pay for such a sin, if it were committed, is time spent in prison being raped daily. I don't know that I agree with that either. Vigilante justice is hardly carried out with regard for universal human rights or prohibition of torture. But if the punishment seems to fit the crime then it might be more honest to devise corporal punishment such as Sharia law instead of releasing sex offenders into the general prison population—knowing full well how prison justice is handled among inmates—and letting the chips fall where they may. I think if Cosby did commit the sexual assaults he's accused of, the best thing he could do is turn himself in, confess to the crimes and face due process. You know as well as I do, Mr. Bananas, that with Cosby's fame and stature, as well as his wealth and ability to hire the best legal representation that money can buy, he'll face minimal detention, if any, and probably merely have to pay restitution to the victims. Shame, however, will follow him wherever he goes. And if he is innocent, he is still going to face scrutiny, because even if guilt is beyond a reasonable doubt, in our culture you're generally considered guilty well before being proved innocent.
