Agreed. Should have been

Roman Polanski is overwhelmed by the support since his arrest, makes him feel like a 13-year-old again. Or like feeling a 13 year old again. One of the two

Yeah, he got to rape a 13 year old girl and did not do any prison time, but he had to move out of the USA for life.

To me it's not worth it.

Too wordy. Subby got it.

OK, why does this guy have support at all? I heard he drugged and sodomized the girl. Then he avoids his punishment and expects everything to be OK. Am I missing something? Is everything OK?

What is to be gained by extradition and possibly life in prison? The victim in the incident doesn't want it brought up again either. Seriously, what he did was wrong but they should just drop it.

If he doesn't feel like a 13 year old girl now, I'm sure he will in prison.

The victim was paid off. Should people be able to do whatever they want if they have enough cash to bribe the victim (Or in some cases their parents) afterwords?

Uh, I think you are the one who "missed it." Subby's headline was intended to be understood as "makes him feel like (raping) a 13-year-old again." As in when one says, "I feel like a pizza." It doesn't mean they feel doughy and cheese-covered.

Dude, leave Roman Polanski alone already.

Watch or read a biography of this guy, he has not had an easy life. His wife and love of his life was brutally murdered while she was pregnant, and the press accused him of being in on it so they could sell a story.

He was a European living in a strange country being pushed around by an egotistical conservative judge with an agenda. He was scapegoated and taken advantage of for doing what many Californians were doing at the time anyway.

Yes what he did was wrong, but it was the 60s, early 70s etc in California.

He was a fantastic filmmaker who contributed a lot.

Well, back then it was 48 days. Now with the fleeing charges, he's facing significantly more time than that, from what I understand.

No, but yet it happens everyday. I'd also like to point out that her parents were aware of the situation they allowed her to go into.

And this is why I feel we shouldn't be giving Polanski any attention. Because people make excuses for him, they think what he did was ok. Paying attention to it somehow makes it seem like it's excusable. Stop talking about him, let him get sentenced and rot in jail.

averagejoe42: "He did something really gross to me, but it was the media that ruined my life" -- Samantha Geimer

Of course, that was AFTER Polanski payed Geimer a whole lotta money to STFU. She had previously expressed dismay at being drugged, farked in the bum, and then farked in the front bum while saying, "no, no, no." At the age of 13.

It's one thing when Glen Beck does it. But this guy has a creepy accent.

/Do the crime, do the time


Oh, but he will be facing wayyy more than the 48 or so days he feared the judge was going to give him. Because he fled before sentencing, he now faces prosecution on all 6 of the counts he originally was charged with (rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under fourteen, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor) and not just the one charge he was being sentenced for (engaging in unlawful intercourse with a minor).
He's screwed, blued and tattoed. As he should be.

He hasn't had an easy life? Farking please.

This. I'd also like to note that there's a reason certain crimes aren't just 'dropped'. For rape, a victim may be harassed, bought off, just want it all to go away... but if it's not followed up the person may commit the crime again. Even if they don't, someone else may take a cue from them on how to avoid retribution themselves.

Also, if anyone hasn't, I'd read the deposition on The Smoking Gun. Great, and by 'great' I mean completely and utterly depressing, read.

No, it wasn't changed on him. As ANYONE knows, the judge does NOT have to go with the prosecutors suggested sentencing. Polanski was told BEFOREHAND the judge felt a little more jail time was appropriate for the crime, and Polanski ran like a biatch.

No it wasn't. The judge said he had to spend 90 days in a prison hospital (psych ward). A doctor decided to release him after 42 days, so the judge said 'Fine...spend the other 48 in jail jail'. The sentence never changed from the original 90 days he agreed to serve.

As to the victim being 'bought off' for her silence, that's not quite how it played out either. She sued him in civil court for the damages he inflicted upon her. It was settled.

What's to be gained? Justice. Does the victim have a say in when justice is or is not dispensed in the American justice system? No.

Is your argument an old cannard that's been addressed time and time again? Why, yes, yes it is. But thanks for trying anyway, you sick perverted freak.

Yes. That is because you have standards that won't allow you to sink to the depths of human depravity.

(I almost laughed, but I stifled it.)
 
2009-12-27 08:25:57 PM
I wouldn't be too proud of this 'support.' Most of it is coming from people who see this as a slap to the face of America and our overly brutal way of dealing with criminals and our flawed crime system. Yet they're backing the same type of crime by allowing a man who raped a young girl.

Some support. I can back them on how they see the American Crime System as corrupt. They have a valid point. But to support Polanski as a symbol of that does them no favors. The man is obviously a rapist, and in supporting him they are not doing themselves any favors. And, in a way, are letting the victim suffer for their political leanings.

I sincerely hope they are happy with what they are doing. But they're probably too busy patting themselves on the back to think too heavily about this.
