I'm presuming you meant to refer to Cosby, and not Crosby, in this context.

The trial details making it to the news, are crazy. This is the best the Crown came to court with?

If they made this into a "made for TV movie", CBC might have some ratings. :-)

Hey, as soon as he is accused he is guilty and the court procedure is just window dressing...

There is a trend though both the women were trying to wreck his life.

1. I was trying to bait him out
2. I will decimate him

Hardly the language of abuse victims... More like plotting conspirators....

This is not a statement regarding JG's guilt or innocence, but a more general statement regarding the comment about language of abuse victims.

I think it is not possible to predict how an abuse victim would react as the reactions would be as varied as people themselves. Some victims want to forget and pretend it never happened, some may become angry later and want revenge in which case their language might "seem" like plotting conspirators.

Again, not applying necessarily to this case, just a general observation.

Today, apparently, the 3rd witness against Ghomeshi, has been listening to media reports (against judge's orders), and gave the police a "new" statement, because of this.

Again, really interesting how this case is going.

Even if he raped these women, with the type of testimony I've read it would be a massive injustice if he is anything but non-guilty.

That's case x3 recently that I can think about which seems to be clearly scams
-the feminist harassment case
-patrick kane
-JG

These women should be penalized for nothing else than not having told their lawyers about all the weaknesses in their case. It seems they didn't care about winning the trial, it was just a matter of getting him to trial and ruining his life (mission accomplished).

I hope CBC rehires him...... just to make a point.

I don't think you'll ever see him on the CBC again, They pretty much burned that bridge.

I agree though...given what has been revealed so far, it's unlikely one could without reasonable doubt, find him guilty. Unless he came out and confessed. If he even did anything illegal. The crown witnesses don't seem to have any creditability whatsoever. The email and messaging evidence is quite interesting, and quite damming for the Crown.

Okay I think the witnesses suck big time. However, hypothetically, it is interesting to think about this scenario:

Lets say that the witnesses are prostitutes.

Would this make any difference in the current situation?

I'll even colour the situation a bit more - the john is a known kitty-banger.

Does/should this change things?

I'm thinking that perhaps the prosecutor would have had a better chance of success had he gone the assault route as opposed to "sexual" assault?

The only thing this trial is doing is keeping him out of jail. His reputation in Canada is ruined. Going to prison on sex assault would destroy him. His lawyer is only pulling the reasonable doubt card which is why they opted for a judge only.

They aren't pulling a "card". The trial is simply revealing facts.

If anyone was trying to play a "card", I'd say it was the Crown's witnesses, and they don't seem to be playing that "game" very well. I say game, because you have a bunch of adult women, who in their captured email/messaging (evidence), seemed to regard this as a game. It's a very bizarre case.
