The Game Defends Bill Cosby After Sexual Assault Charge
The Game went on Instagram today (Jan. 5) to speak out against the recent arrest of Bill Cosby for sexual assault charges. The Compton rapper spoke out against the situation and expressed frustration at the amount of people who remain free after killing black people.
"I think it's crazy that Bill Cosby has a mugshot for alleged assaults 11 years ago with no physical evidence or proof besides these women's accounts of what he did to them an entire decade later," The Game wrote. "But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is free. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is free. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene on camera, is free. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are free. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are free! I could go on all day, but you get the point. And again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth."
While The Game claims that he's not saying the accusers are lying, he feels there is not substantial evidence for Cosby to be charged.
"I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because rape is a huge deal and I don't wish that on any woman of any color," The Game wrote. "But whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now. Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light? And while we out here laughing and making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on TV as children. In other news, the people we pay taxes to keep employed are still taking the lives of men, women and even children, on video, are out here enjoying the New Year FREE and I don't see no memes of that shit. And who am I except a man with an opinion. So, I'm not here to ask anyone to do anything other than pay attention and govern yourself accordingly."
