Roman Polanski, Rogue Pedophile in Custody

I’ve had a few days to digest what all the to-do about the arrest of director Roman Polanski in Switzerland last Saturday is all about.  After 31 years of avoiding US authorities, the law finally caught up with the famed director.

Here’s the short story:  Polanski drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl back in 1977, admitted guilt and plea-bargained the crime to “statutory rape,” then jumped bail and fled the country before any sentence was passed on him.  That’s all I knew until earlier today when I became aware of the details of that girl’s grand jury testimony:  44-year-old Polanski gave this 13-year-old girl quaaludes mixed with champagne by the jacuzzi at a friend’s place and forced himself on her doing his best pedophile version of a cheap 70s porn flick on this poor girl. 

Here’s the deal:  he was the adult in the room, he knew what he was doing was wrong, and the girl was obviously too young, immature, and intimidated to see the consequences of not just running away.  He admitted guilt, paid the girl’s family in a private settlement and did some time in a mental institution before bolting.  But that’s just it — he left town.

For Hollywood and the French, he’s done his time.  Many in Hollywood (including Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese) have signed a petition calling for Polanski’s release!  Apparently to them, the statute of limitations on the heinous rape of a minor has passed.  Whoopi Goldberg even said what Polanski did was not “rape rape.”  I don’t get it… did he kind of rape her?  Sort of rape her?  Accidentally rape her?  I’m confused, especially when I read the details!  Rape is rape — imagine this happened to your 13-year-old daughter, cousin, sister or niece.  Rape is rape.

Though it happened over 32 years ago, he still never did his time for the crime and should be extradited here and sit in a prison until he’s satisfied the demands of our legal system.

Almost laughable that Woody Allen is coming to his defense, considering the skeletons he has in his closet.
