I copy this intact from Debbie Does Nothing:
Roman Polanski raped a child
I’m so sick of all the “artists,” including people I admire like Debra Winger, bemoaning the fact that Roman Polanski was arrested on outstanding warrants on the child rape for which he was convicted. They keep saying oh, it’s been 30 years, isn’t it time to just let it go?
Whose fault is it that it’s been 30 years? If he had stayed in California, he would have served his time and been released many years ago. If he served any time at all – chances are lawyers could’ve got him out on appeal.
People seem to forget he drugged a 13 year old girl with quaaludes and champagne, forced her to pose for nude photos, then fucked her in the ass.
She was 13.
My wife and I watched this on the TV news last night… all the European fols who are saying he’s suffered enough. Don’t they have daughters?
And in his suffering he got to keep directing and even won an Oscar. That’s suffering all right.
