Bill Cosby, Jail, and Life: Follow @CanaanJosephine If you all are going to lock Bill Cosby up at the age of 80, I need y'all to put Carolyn Byant Donham at age 83 in jail for accessory to murder for having Emmett till killed and CONFESSING in 2017 5:25 PM - 26 Apr 2018 14,363 Retweets 19,881 Likes <p><a href="https://darkvioletcloud.tumblr.com/post/173723038558/thespectacularspider-girl" class="tumblr_blog">darkvioletcloud</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://thespectacularspider-girl.tumblr.com/post/173636843909/concentrated-sunshine-thatpettyblackgirl" class="tumblr_blog">thespectacularspider-girl</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://concentrated-sunshine.tumblr.com/post/173636519475/thatpettyblackgirl-exactly-wouldnt-you-have-to" class="tumblr_blog">concentrated-sunshine</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://thatpettyblackgirl.tumblr.com/post/173347514546/exactly" class="tumblr_blog">thatpettyblackgirl</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Exactly</p></blockquote> <p>Wouldn’t you have to y'know, have to prove that was her intent to convict her?</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Also , not to defend or excuse but you’re aware that would be a very large can of worms to open, yes?</p> </blockquote> <p>Yes, I’m not necessarily supporting the idea of jailing her but I’m noting the hypocrisy of the situation.</p> <p>She lied about being sexually assaulted by a black man and he was lynched as a result. I’m a firm believer that false accusations of rape should hold jail time, which this would apply to as well.</p> <p>I don’t support the people trying to use this to try and say Cosby should get off because of his age. I’m saying that if Cosby is guilty and is being jailed despite his age, this woman should be put on trial as an accessory to murder.</p> <p>Even if she’s found not guilty, the trial should occur. Because she flat out admitted she lied and that lie ended up getting a man killed. Just like if in the modern day a woman lies about a man raping her and that man got sent to jail for 40 years.</p> </blockquote> <p>He wasn’t even a man. If memory serves, Emmett Till was a <i>boy</i>. A young boy of <i>15 years old</i> and was brutally murdered for allegedly whistling at a woman. He was mutilated to the point of nearly being unrecognized and people fainted at his wake.</p> <p>He was a child. He was a child whose life was cut viciously short by monsters.</p> </blockquote>
