As far as i know, the allegations he actually went to court for were more recently (2004 or something) like rubber soul said. The majority of the allegations from the 60s, 70s, 80s etc actually came out after the testimony of that case went public. If Cosby did rape all these women, the weakness of the case is due largely to the decades of silence. That doesn't mean he's any less of a rapist if it did go down like that. But it's not clear what actually happened because the evidence is largely long gone.
Yes rape cases are notoriously hard to prosecute because without an immediate rape kit there tends to be little to no evidence and traumatized rape victims tend to be "shy" about reporting their attackers even when they're not rich and powerful people who can drag their name through the mud for scumbag to jeer at. This can't be your first time being made aware of this.

I'm sure people have reasons not to report but the problem with that is I'm not %100 sure that what they said even happened because of that lack of evidence where as it seems to be taken for granted he serially raped like 50 women based on hear say. Even if there was a history of it being reported or people pressing charges back then, that would tell us more circumstantially even without a rape kit necessarily.

Rubber soul said we turned a blind eye... Correct me if I'm wrong but the 2004 allegations were the first public hint of any of this. I could be wrong but i don't see anyone who actually alleged anything publicly or pressed charges before that incident.

Are you ****ing kidding me? Do you even know what the 70's were like? Women were still able to be raped by their husbands/partners up until 1993 nationwide in the US.

"Prior to 1975, Defendants could attack an alleged victim’s credibility by presenting evidence of the victim’s sexual activity. The public humiliation and embarrassment of having their sexual history dragged out in court became a strong incentive for victims not to report sex crimes."

Source

Tell me what it's like for women who've been raped again? And what it takes to report it?
