Cosby 'tired of children raising themselves'

Associated Press


Comedian Bill Cosby has visited northwest Ohio to encourage parents and community members to take responsibility for keeping their children and neighborhoods safe.

The Toledo Blade reports Cosby led thousands of people on a walk through part of Toledo that ended Saturday in a rally at a park. At one point, he stopped at a barber shop to console a man whose wife was fatally shot in the city last year.

Cosby also spoke Friday to 750 people at a dinner in Maumee for the Greater Toledo Urban League. He told the audience he’s “tired of children raising themselves” and others doing nothing about it.

The newspaper says Cosby shared childhood stories and talked about a tough elementary school teacher and others who helped guide his life and offered accountability.
