Roman Polanski deserves what he gets

I can't be the only person who's surprised that so many people are rallying behind Roman Polanski, a man who drugged and raped a 13-year-old and then fled from the jurisdiction of the country that was going to prosecute him. I know that in the movie industry, where people are completely detached from reality, they might actually believe that his artistic contributions outweigh a crime he has already admitted to, but there can't be people in the real world who think the same. Maybe I'm wrong.

Amen. This isn't some

Amen. This isn't some instance of Puritanism run amok, like the Genarlow Wilson case. This was old-fashioned forcible rape of a child.

What sort of justice are you interested in?

As I understand it, Roman Polanski already came to a settlement with the girl that he admitted to raping. To me, that's the only consideration that matters.

Well, I see your point, but

Well, I see your point, but the reason they settled, according to what I've read (and linked to there) was that the girl couldn't handle having her name and family exposed to all the press. Maybe if someone is a predator, they should just prey on people who can't handle publicity?

You should take a look at

You should take a look at the documentary from last year about the case. The basic idea is that the judge was a complete nutjob that was just dicking everyone around. Polansky was ready to take his punishment, but he had no clue what the insane judge was going to do, so he bounced. Maybe it was the documentary, but in the end you're left feeling like, what he did was fucked, but at the same time this court case is way fucked out of control. He probably did the best thing anyone could have done in that situation.

Fleeing was the best he could have done?

What exactly was he fleeing from? A crazy judge. What was the judge going to do...punish him? Don't lose sight of the crime by focusing on a meaningless judge.

Polanski

I can't believe how stupid people are that support a criminal like Polanski! He is a criminal that has been living the good life for over 30 years. Its time he paid for his crime! It has been proven pedifiles can never be reformed!! If the truth was know he probably been getting away with the same crimes over and over! They need to bring him back to California and throw away the key!
