‘Women’s Lives Matter.’ Topless Protestor Detained on First Day of Bill Cosby Retrial

The unidentified woman ran in front of Cosby toward a bank of TV cameras but was intercepted by sheriff’s deputies and led away in handcuffs.

The disruption came ahead of opening statements, which were delayed while the judge sorted through allegations raised late Friday that a juror told a woman during jury selection that he thought Cosby was guilty. Cosby’s lawyers want the juror removed from the case.

Prosecutors have lined up a parade of accusers to make the case that the man revered as “America’s Dad” lived a double life as one of Hollywood’s biggest predators.

Cosby is fighting back with a new, high-profile lawyer and an aggressive strategy: attacking Andrea Constand as a greedy liar and casting the other women testifying as bandwagon accusers looking for a share of the spotlight.

“You’ve seen previews and coming attractions, but things have changed,” said professor Laurie Levenson of Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.

The woman ran in front of Cosby toward a bank of TV cameras but was intercepted by sheriff’s deputies and led away in handcuffs. The European feminist group Femen claimed the protester as one of its own.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt praised deputies for their quick action but urged court officials to increase security.

‘It’s a different world. Things have changed,’ Wyatt told The Associated Press, referring to recent mass shootings and other episodes. ‘You never know who’s going to want to make a name for themselves.’

Rochelle, who is sometimes credited as Nicole Leach, is an actress who appeared in four episodes of “The Cosby Show” from 1990-1992.

The disruption came ahead of opening statements, which were delayed while the judge sorted through allegations raised late Friday that a juror told a woman during jury selection that he thought Cosby was guilty. Cosby’s lawyers want the juror removed from the case.

Topless militants: Femen takes feminist fight to Cosby trial

PARIS (AP) ‘ The women of Femen have bared their breasts at the Vatican, in front of Russian President Vladimir Putin and now at a Pennsylvania courthouse, all for one cause: fighting patriarchy.

Femen was born from a 2008 pajama party in Ukraine, where a group of young feminists decided to use sexuality to protest Ukrainian women being trafficked for sex and other women’s issues.

While the group publishes books and holds conferences, it’s best known for activists taking off their shirts and bras to show political messages scrawled on their breasts and backs.

Despite its extreme and often illegal antics, it has attracted sponsors and members of multiple nationalities and is now present in eight countries, Paris-based Femen leader Inna Shevchenko said.

Femen activists target their unauthorized actions carefully to attract as much media attention as possible. That media obsession and the members’ use of their breasts as a protest tool have drawn criticism from feminist groups and others who see Femen protests as a distraction.
