I don't think so. If he's found guilty of being a rapist then he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He would certainly never be able to act again, he should also become a registered sex offended, but he still has rights, no matter how deplorable his crimes.
I agree with the others, but he should also never be allowed to win any awards again. I thought I heard on the news (might have been mistaken as I only caught the end) that his Hollywood star would be removed. If found guilty, I agree with that, as such a person should not be displayed with honour in that way.
I totally agree with you on this.

If it is that Bill Cosby is in fact guilt of rape, he should face the legal consequences. In this case, I don't think he should be stripped of his past awards unless these the crime considerably contributed to him winning them.
At this stage I don't think any one really cares if he gets to keep his awards or not - it's not really a big issue. If he is found guilty then he should be punished to the highest degree.
I definitely do not think so -if he is found guilty, I think he will just sort of disappear if he does not go to jail.

It is so sad that these things are coming out so many years later, and not after the event when the person would have been stopped doing this to other people.

I wonder what it is about celebrities that they seem to do this -I believe he will be treated the same as other sex offenders, similar to our Rolf Harris.

I find it sad as he seemed such a nice person, and I would not have guessed him capable of these crimes. However I believe they are not obvious people who do this sort of thing anyway.

I read something the other day about one of the girls that came forward who claims she was 15 years at the time Cosby assaulted her. I thought it was interesting she chose to drink with him and lie about her age to get into the Playboy Mansion. I'm not saying he did or didn't do it, but it certainly makes me wonder...

NO. He won his awards by his skill as a comedian. He should however go to prison if found guilty of all the allegations towards him.
The question should be when will Cosby be tried? If he was guilty, he would have already been arrested. But maybe because of all these illicit sexual relationships, some of his exes feel they weren't fully compensated or given the illustrious career and fame that followed the man. Or maybe he's just being character assassinated. If Cosby was never sexually involved, he would have sued these people; and if Cosby had raped the women, he would have been arrested a long time ago, and not have people make late allegations.
Yes, the same as has happened to Rolf Harris. Good.
Like Harris, Cosby has committed the crimes whilst in receipt of Awards, so they should go ASAP, if found guilty.
