BBC Leicester presenters in court on child sex offence charges...

Post  Rosa canina on Fri 02 Jun 2017, 4:56 am

This seedy couple - they're so English...!

(and he's got a fringe toupee on in a couple of the pictures)

Abysmally poor taste calendars, too - who'd buy such an ugly thing?

I've put your post here Rosa as there's a link to this case on 20th February.

The calendar was for the Children in Need fund raiser - I've seen worse than that.

Why the age range of the boy here?

"Julie Wadsworth, 60, is accused of having sex with a boy aged between 14 and 18"

Surely, if he was over 16 and quite happy with whatever happened, this wouldn't be illegal?

This is what Pat Brown has to say about there being a mistrial.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/bill-cosby-mistrial-legal-experts-debate-how-happened-whats-next-1014472

This is a good example of why a statute of limitations should be in play with adult complainants. If an adult citizen doesn't believe at the time that behavior reaches the level of a crime that ought to be prosecuted and that what the perpetrator has done should should never be enacted on other human beings, than she/he shouldn't be able to come back years later and whine. Proof and memory disappears over time as well causing it to be difficult to evaluate what actually happened.
Is Bill Cosby guilty? I think he was unquestionably a horndog back in his day and he made use of the casting couch and quaaludes as was quite common back in the 70s. But, hey, the women and men trying to make it in Hollywood were not so naive as to not understand what a famous actor or big producer had in mind when they went to their parties or private domain and hung out with them and accepted drinks and drugs from them. And, if they come back later for more interaction with the guys, then they have make it pretty clear they are willing to do whatever those guys want in order to get whatever they want.
Sure, people in power can use their power , but that doesn't mean if someone gives in to their whims because they see something in it for themselves, they don't have a part in what occurred. It used to be called "prostituting" oneself for gain, but, now, one can do so and then come back and claim they were a victim years later as if they had no control over their own choices.
I think even more than a mistrial, the appropriate verdict should have been "not guilty" in spite of Cosby's shenanigans. I hope they do not try this case again.

Well worth a read.

Pat makes sense.  I`d better not say any more.

Hollywood Sleaze and the McCann Case...

Post  Rosa canina on Mon 16 Oct 2017, 8:30 am

http://www.hindustantimes.com/music/former-member-calls-pussycat-dolls-a-prostitution-ring-we-were-all-abused/story-sXInATadEJbBJO8c0WvPSK.html


It was Mrs Kate who first introduced wee Madeleine to the PCD :

I’d bought a couple of girl-band CDs a few weeks earlier and we’d been having singalongs in the car to warm up for it. The memory of Madeleine, sitting in the back seat, singing her heart out along with the Pussycat Dolls still makes me laugh. And cry.

McCann, Kate. Madeleine: Our daughter's disappearance and the continuing search for her (Kindle Locations 1916-1918). Transworld. Kindle Edition.   


I reckon that grotty old bag-botherer Cuddlecat could be described as a pussycat doll.

I have wondered before about Kate's taste in music, thinking of the image that the PCD had - an unlikely choice for a 30 something mum, in my opinion, and totally unsuitable for a then two-year-old.

As for Harvey Weinstein, he sounds like the usual run-of-the-mill slime ball who has long existed in the entertainment industry.

Video link...

Post  Rosa canina on Thu 26 Oct 2017, 6:18 am

'Abused - Breaking the Silence' is not available on Youtube

(it's the documentary about heinous molestation at Grace Dieu/St Michael's Soni)

- the link at the top left hand side of this link works for me though :

Highly recommended and bloody heart-breaking.
