"We stand by and wait for his release and his next masterwork,"
Yes. Perhaps she can be the leading lady in a masterpiece about a Hollywood hero who's raping and sodomizing a 13 year old he's slipped a mickey to.
Can it get any more disgusting?
He didn't get his lifetime achievement award.
Some of the pedophile defenders are building strawmen:
Here are some of the facts: Polanski's crime -- statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl -- was committed in 1977. The girl, now 45, has said more than once that she forgives him, that she can live with the memory, that she does not want him to be put back in court or in jail, and that a new trial will hurt her husband and children.
Shame on the author of this piece of puke.
Police arrest wife beaters, child rapists or murderers whether or not the victims want the criminal arrested or they don't. In fact, most times the victims are ashamed and don't want the publicity. That doesn't stop society from seeking and demanding justice.
He can be blamed, it is true, for his original, panicky decision to flee. But for this decision I see mitigating circumstances, not least an understandable fear of irrational punishment. Polanski's mother died in Auschwitz. His father survived Mauthausen. He himself survived the Krakow ghetto, and later emigrated from communist Poland. His pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered in 1969 by the followers of Charles Manson, though for a time Polanski himself was a suspect
Oh well then. He should be given a get out of jail card. This rich Hollywood king had hardships in his life. I guess that's what socialism is. The rich and famous movie and sports stars rape and kill and are heroes in the secular press.
There's no much mercy for the impoverished who commit crimes. Our prisons are filled with them.
As they should be.
Polanski got away with this for over 30 years.
Time for a day of reckoning.
