Smelling Like A Rose

I was never this lucky, I reminded myself when I saw the special news alert concerning Bill Cosby’s conviction. It’s most likely why I never even tried because I knew the consequences of ignoring when she said “No.”

Unlike many men who didn’t accept no for an answer, I appreciated and respected women too much to just merely shrug them off or later justify my actions in some way suggesting she “teased me,” or any other number of excuses, or in Bill’s case, just getting her drunk enough or high enough so she wouldn’t or couldn’t say no.

I don’t blame Bill for the outcome that occurred. I blame the district attorney who should have gone after him in the first place and not offer some deal that would negate the matter from going any further. Didn’t he read the Constitution about self incrimination? Didn’t he even care? After all, Cosby is a Black entertainer who could afford to lose a couple million in a civil case. Maybe he just figured Cosby’s lawyers were as ignorant of the fifth amendment as he was.

I don’t have to tell you that I truly believe in Cosby’s guilt. Even he admitted he more than likely crossed a line. He absolutely knows he violated a sacred trust with that woman.

On a lighter note I finished editing a new book that is part of a new series call Nick Roberts Mystery. This one revolves around a Native elder who is part of a sex slavery plot. It started with him abducting Native girls but later he goes after any girl he can get a decent auction price for. At the moment the book is titled Luke Warm: A Nick Roberts Mystery, Book One.

I’m started writing a first draft of book three, book two, is awaiting my blue pencil. Happy Fourth everyone!
