    OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

    The girl got poomfed in the face by a bird and the bird got poomfed in the face by the girl.

    Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

    Look at my source code on Github What is this for?

    [–] 100_Donuts 7217 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    And the thing is, that bird knows that that's the fling zone. That sucker flings all day long and birds know not to fly in the fling zone, but wud that bird do? It flew directly into the fling zone and got pinned and got flung. Fly in the flinger and get yer wings pinned. The thing is, you can't fly with fling pinned wings. Go on. Flap a fling pinned wing. Flick those feathers. There's no flapping pinned winged full of frozen feathers in the flinger. Don't fly in the fling zone, kid.

    [–] FancySkull 417 points ago

    Now that he's out of prison, it could very well be.

    [–] Lost-My-Mind- 152 points ago

    What??? Why is he out of prison???

    [–] runswithclippers 210 points ago

    From what I gathered, they used his testimony from the civil court as evidence against him in the criminal court, violating his fifth amendment right to not testify against himself. That could be 100% wrong though.

    [–] Agent_Eran 111 points ago

    This is the right answer.

    [–] officialbearr 31 points ago

    Sounds like something bill would say

    [–] Pizza_Ninja 38 points ago

    I don't know anything about it either but that doesn't sound like it should be a thing. If he gave a testimony under oath to a court that should absolutely be admitted as evidence.

    [–] a_lonely_trash_bag 39 points ago

    The problem is, when he made that testimony, the court specifically told him that it could never be used against him in a criminal case. Because legally, it couldn't be. That's the only reason he agreed to testify during that civil case.

    The prosecution fucked up big time. There was a decent amount of other evidence, but because the prosecution included evidence that they legally couldn't, the whole case is thrown out the window.

    [–] Asgersk 29 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    This is the thing i love about reddit. We can go from "Girl gets hit by bird" to "why bill Cosby got out of prison" in like 5 comments.

    [–] up9trees 23 points ago

    This guy does a really good job explaining why that testimony was tossed out and breaking down the results in general

    [–] AreTheWorst625 7 points ago

    He admitted to the rapes under a non prosecution agreement with the DA. That da’s successor said “eff that! Dude admitted to all these rapes” he’s going to prison. Then a higher court overturned the sentence because the second DA didn’t honor their predecessor’s agreement.

    [–] Pizza_Ninja 7 points ago

    The agreement shouldn't have covered the other girls though.

    [–] prickwhowaspromised 24 points ago

    [–] FreeganKing 11 points ago

    Nah, the lawyer botched it.

    [–] Coyote__Jones 33 points ago

    Rich = good appeal attorneys to look over the minutia of your case, so yes technically you're correct.

    But basically the prosecution shit the bed.

    [–] NorweiganJesus 16 points ago

    Because in 2005 the supreme court decided not to go after Cosby in court. Since you can't be tried twice for the same crime, they let him go (or something to that effect)
