The enemy don't want to hear the TRUTH. So it was just a matter of time. Bill Cosby should have been cognizant of that and stayed away from those Beckies and separated himself as much as possible from the pinkies. Russell Simmons was cognizant and made his move the no extradition country, Bali, Indonesia. Simmons had vision, while Cosby displayed none.
