The hip hop star took to Instagram on Tuesday (05Jan16) and offered up his thoughts about the 40-plus rape accusations swirling around the once-beloved TV star, insisting lawmakers should focus more time on white police officers and others who have killed unarmed black men in the past 18 months - incidents that have prompted riots and rallies across America.

"I think it's crazy that Bill Cosby has a mugshot for alleged assaults 11 years ago with no physical evidence or proof besides these womens (sic) accounts of what he did to them an entire decade later," The Game wrote. "But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene... on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE!

"I could go on all day, but you get the point... & again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable (Cosby's character in The Cosby Show) in jail off of word of mouth."

Cosby was arrested and and charged with aggravated indecent assault last week Wednesday (30Dec15), stemming from allegations he attacked Andrea Constand at his mansion in Pennsylvania in January, 2004.

The 78-year-old turned himself in to police and was arraigned in a Montgomery County courthouse before being released on $1 million (£670,000) bail. He is due back in court on 14 January (16) for a preliminary hearing in the case.

40-plus other women have also accused Cosby of drugging and/or raping them.

"I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don't wish that on any woman of any color... but whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now," The Game added. "Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children... in other news... The people we pay taxes to keep employed are still taking the lives of men, women & even children, ON VIDEO, are out here enjoying the New Year FREE & I don't see no memes of that s**t...

"who am I except a man with an opinion... So I'm not here to ask anyone to do anything other than pay attention & govern yourself accordingly."
