Bill Cosby Goes To Jail, Violent Hours In The District, Trump Trashes Kavanaugh Accusers & Democrats

Bill Cosby sentenced to jail time

Three to ten years. That’s how long Bill Cosby was ordered to serve in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting, in his Pennsylvania home 14 years ago, Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee.  During sentencing Tuesday in a Norristown, Pennsylvania courtroom, Judge Steven O’Neill addressed Cosby, saying, “Mr. Cosby this has all circled back to you. The day has come, the time has come.” Cosby was denied bail and was immediately led to jail in handcuffs.

Violent trend in the District

It was a violent and deadly Monday night and Tuesday morning in Northeast, DC.
Three men were shot and killed in a seven hour period.  The shootings occurred in the 18-hundred block of Benning Road, 14th Street and Downing Place and in the 62-hundred block of Eastern Avenue. The shootings bring Washington’s homicide total to 119 for the first 9 months of this year. There were 116 total homicides in DC in 2017.

Trump criticizes Democrats and Kavanaugh accuser

President Trump is accusing Democrats of playing a “con game” with sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett Kavanagh. Asked Tuesday about Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, Trump said he doubts her story because “She admits that she was drunk.”  Meantime, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell apologize to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for calling her allegations against Kavanaugh a “smear job.”
