TKC MUST READ!!! CRAIG GLAZER CONSIDERS THE MISTRIAL OF BILL COSBY!!!



Right now Craig Glazer provides an important and informed perspective on a landmark case in the world of comedy and American culture.

Here's the word from the foremost Kansas City comedy club impresario regarding the ongoing controversy:


Craig Glazer: Bill Cosby May Go Free Til The End Of His Days

Say it ain't so Bill! As we all know dozens of women have come forward and said that Super Star entertainer Bill Cosby sexually molested them without their consent. All the women claim he drugged them before they had sex with Cosby. The odd thing is that none came forward when the incidents happened years ago. Some even continued relationships with Cosby after they later claimed he rapped them. All this led to a criminal trial that lasted just three days and ended with a hung jury. The jury was out nearly a week, longer than the trial itself.

Judge Steven Oneill kept pressing for a verdict from the jurors. In fact the jurors now say early on they were almost all voting 'not guilty.' The victim, Andrea Constand says Bill Cosby drugged her and had sex with her back in 2004. In fact the case was so old it was nearly dropped due to the timeline but the district attorney got the case to court just under the gun.

In the end the jury voted 10-2 for conviction on 2 counts. However 2 jurors said they would not ever change their vote to guilty. So on day six the case was dropped and Bill is a free man as of today. The D.A. says he will refile the case within four months. Question is will he? Remember all but her case are too old to be go to trial today. Meaning without other women testifying against the Cos, there may never be another trial. In this trial the court ruled they couldn't testify. Why, too long ago, no physical evidence, no DNA, its a he said she said case.The big question is why did they all wait for decades to come forward. Some women got paid in civil suits or out of court settlements to go away.

According to Jimmie Walker, who is good friends with Cosby and worked with him on several movies and opened for him at many shows in Vegas: " I love the guy, however clearly he did some things he shouldn't have done. There are just too many women saying so, yet why the long wait. Many just wanted a payday. Bill Cosby is worth several hundred million dollars. I knew Bill loved the ladies back in the day and they loved him. Remember he was a huge star, very handsome as a younger man, a mega star in film and television. Cosby had no trouble getting ladies, they lined up for him. I was upset with him back in the day due his wife being a fine lady and having to put up with it all. What I hate is he is 80, one of America's all time comedy stars and now we never see his shows or anything else on the tube ever again."

Whats right in this case? Tough call. Clearly Cosby took advantage of some women. Some were agreed and some likely were not. Problem: Its so old and he is an icon. Hell I used to sit at the boy scout campfires as a kid while hundreds of us listened to his comedy albums. We thought of him as a modern day Bob Hope. Nobody was a bigger name in entertainment than Cosby. He is now 80, his health fading, likely near the end of his days. Maybe its best to let him end his days the way things are, with people looking at him with disgust and hurt that a man they saw as everyone's dad did such stupid acts for really no reason. Seems he was a sick guy. My guess is it may all be over now. If they can't get testimony from other women in, its uphill and may never be tried again. Again the entire thing makes all of us question even the most cherished names in not only entertainment but life itself. So sad.

Nice work Craig.

This one is tough, the politics of it have made people overlook the evidence in some of the reports and the lack of it in others.

Only 2 holdouts kept Cosby from certain doom.

That's definitely a close all and shows that he might not be so lucky during the next trial

Who gives a sideways fuck about what this idiot glazer has to say? Not us! Hey glazer, why don't you take these dumb ass opinion pieces and shove them up your ass instead of spamming them all over tkc?

Tony why do you let these trolls comment here? Just jerks. I agree with Craig, the cases are just too old, Cosby is likely guilty but they waited just too long.

It is a well known fact Cosby has always been a creep and Uncle Tom. His Spanish fly routine on his first album is clue #1.

He tried to destroy Janis Ian by spreading lies about her when she was 16 spreading rumors she was a lesbian. Because she was cuddling with a friend backstage at the Tonight Show. Janis is a lesbian but she wasn't at 16. She dated boys and married two men.

Tommy Smothers called him out for being silent on Civil Rights. Tommy confronted him many times about being silent on Vietnam and the black condition. Later Cosby sucker punched him.

Groucho Marx saw through him too. Cosby asked if Groucho knew any comedian worst than him and he replied, Nixon.

He said, she said and the instant dismissal of the women's claims (despite his deposition where he admitted drugging women for sex) is why women and children don't come forward when they are sexually abused.

Perhaps you are in the Philadelphia Inquirer's Christine Flowers camp. She is the official rape excuser of 'Merica.

She wrote, If I had my way, we’d never come to verdict on this case. The greatest damage has already been done, and that is the shattering of beloved myths and comforting relationships by the proxy of television and nostalgia. Bill Cosby is Cliff Huxtable, regardless of what the critics say. We are all made up of perception and reality, fact and fiction, aspiration and confirmation. It is ridiculous to argue that a man who was capable of creating the character that fathered a generation did not, at some deep level, possess those nurturing characteristics.

Ms Flowers forgot that for three seasons Cliff and Claire called their son dumb, stupid. And when in season 4 it was discovered he had a learning disability never bothered to say they were sorry or apologized to him for calling him dumb.

We could talk about all the time he spent at the Playboy mansion while married and a father. But facts seem to be unimportant to his apologists and digging into his history of bad acts is too much of a bother.

Glazer is basing his shit on a person who claims to have been on the jury who I am sure was well paid to say something so his information is based on hearsay shit. But you would think a snitch would know that.

Crosby is a creep no doubt, Glazer is a creep also so gee surprise, surprise!

I wonder how many women from Craig's past could come forth and talk about those happy little encouragements men of their age like to give women. Maybe that's why he hangs around strippers and prostitutes- no credibility to make an accusation.

I didn't know Glazer went to Law School.

Sure glad he is not practicing law without a license.

Something to consider...women lie.

They know they can ruin men with just an accusation.

Anonymous said...

In his first sentence Craig Glazer minimizes a serial rapist to "dozen's of accusations' There were 58 women that came forth with clear accusations of rape. We don't find Craig Glazers Rape Apology Column quite surprising because Craig Glazer represents the macho personality and profile of a police informant.

As is his normal procedure when veering away from direct comedy, Glazer is a peddler of old news, mistaken beliefs, and media celebrity opinions.

"The odd thing is that none came forward when the incidents happened years ago."
This statement is a clear lie. The fact that Glazer would repeat it, is indicative that he's uninformed on the topic.

"Some even continued relationships with Cosby after they later claimed he rapped them."
Does Glazer think this story is about an old rapper who tried to force women into rapping with him?

Remember, Glazer predicted a President Hillary.

I feel bad for my friend Craig Glazer. He always writes stories on current issues. His opinions are excellent. Most agree with his views. The haters on here are clearly nobody losers, people who have done zero with their lives. HATERS Craig Glazer is one of the most famous and interesting people this city has ever produced. A book on his life, a very good one, a movie in the works on his life, several big sports films and Ali as well incredible. I worked for him at his club years back, OUTLAWS just off the Plaza. He was an undercover gold badge agent. I know it most did, tons of press on him for that. Oh he has run one of the nations top comedy spots for decades on top of that. Plus night clubs. The women I saw him with over the years from movie stars like that Sandhal Bergman to top porn stars like Marilyn Chambers who came to OUTLAWS on dates with Glazer back when I worked there. Yet haters are jealous of those who do cause they don't do anything but hate. Way it is. Me, I really like Craig and his family. Good people. Oh yeah I'm a former middle weight kick boxing champion, I fought on the Ali card and won my title on ABC. I think I know something on this subject. Hey Craig did that tough guy show up last Monday or whenever he said he would to kick your ass and mine? I highly doubt it. All talk.

Most men are serial abusers of women...lying, cheating, emotional abuse... I mean, I don't know any men who aren't like Cosby. Gentlemen dont exists and men of affluence always abuse their authority. I dont know any who haven't in one way or another. It's funny to hear men bashing other men...probably because they weren't in on it.

Craig have you ever thought about seeking professional help about this affliction of praising yourself using other peoples identity? Now granted I don't have a Philadelphia law degree, but posting using others peoples names and as a ex-FBi agent has to be breaking the law somewhere. I'm sure even your ole buddy Roy Holiday would advise you to cut that shit out.

By the way stupid, many women did come forward and were paid off, many I wonder maybe felt shamed by what they let happen and choose to remain silent about it.

And finally you uneducated snitch trying to act like a writer, he raped those women, he didn't rapped them.

Agree with 9:11. I can't think of anyone who has entertained this city as much as Glazer. Front page news, movies, TV, radio, a book...he's a one man show. Hell I even like his youtube shows. Guy's a doer for sure.

Stanford’s Comedy Club, Legends Outlets, 1867 Village West Parkway, Kansas City, Kan., had 10 priority violations during a June 1 first operational inspection after licensing. The inspector found 15 to 20 live roaches in the kitchen and 25 to 30 small flies. The person in charge told the inspector he had contacted pest control but was unsure of the last visit to that location. He called pest control and left a message for an immediate visit the following morning.

It had 3 live roaches in the sink during a reopening inspection on June 6.

“We didn’t have to close any business days,” said Craig Glazer, director of operations. “When you have an open patio and all the weather we have had these little insects can come in and out and all you can do is spray.”

No apologist for the serial sexual predator and confidential informant but I'd be more concerned if every inspection found no bug.

Means the place is using Agent Orange of bug-sprays to keep 'em out.

Hmmmmm our kitchen at work doesn't have any cockroaches running around. I'm almost positive we have never had a priority violation.
