Bill Cosby won’t say he has remorse in him during his parole proceedings.
He was given a 3 to 10 year prison sentence in Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institution Phoenix for his aggravated indecent assault in 2004. Cosby denied being guilty via his first telephonic interview.
He told BlackPressUSA, “I have eight years and nine months left. When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know. It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters.”
He said one juror called him guilty before retrial, explaining, “Look at the woman who blew the whistle. Then she went in and came out smiling, it’s something attorneys will tell you is called a payoff. I know what they’ve done to my people. But my people are going to view me and say, ‘that boy looks good. That boy is strong.’ I have too many heroes that I’ve sat with. Too many heroes whom I listened to like John Henrik Clarke, Kenneth Clark and Dorothy Height. Those people are very strong, and they saw the rejection of their people. This is political. I can see the whole thing.”
Cosby also talked about his work with the Mann Up organisation while in prison. Mann Up works to help incarcerated African American men. He said, “I don’t belong to the Mann Up Association, but it’s a privilege to come in and speak. I never wanted them to lord me up. This is a great privilege. I’m looking at a state that has a huge number of prisons, and the one I’m in, thankfully, has the largest population of African Americans.”
“The influx of drugs and what they’ve done with their own history. If they would pay attention to these things and put education first and respect for others first…it’s almost insane to hear someone say they don’t know how to be a father,” he continued.
Cosby says the organisation has given his life new meaning.
