Bill Cosby's really comparing himself to people like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.
Just yesterday we posted that Bill Cosby is reportedly having an "amazing time" in prison and it's seemingly because he thinks he's a political prisoner, not a sexual predator. The Blast got its hands on a statement from Bill, through his attorney, Andrew Wyatt that details why he as no remorse and why he "will never have remorse" for his sentencing.
According to the publication, Bill told his wife Camille the following: “I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth – never charged," he added how a “low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now.”

Bill called the sexual violence classes he had to take "entrapment," and allegedly said his imprisonment was a political move. “My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron.”
He added: “I will stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The Truth is Strong!”
