Actor/comedian Bill Cosby told a Boston TV station this morning that people who weren’t at the scene of the arrest should use caution in coming to conclusions about what happened.
“People who have not been there, people who don’t know are beginning to have their own personal feelings, but they weren’t there,” Cosby said.
“Does this include the president,” asked the FOX25 reporter?
“It includes everybody,” Cosby said. “[But] I would have to take into consideration that he lived in Cambridge for some time so he may know more than he’s saying about situations of that sort,” Cosby said.
Cosby also advised that the arresting police officer and professor Gates spend some time together to solve the issue. “This, racially need not take off and look and feel the way it’s beginning to look and feel,” he said.
