If it had been MY thirteen year old daughter; I would currently be serving a life sentence in France no matter how much money he had given her, unless they have the death penalty.

This is a waste of money....the girl was paid a settlement years ago and has forgiven him...taxpayers should have other prioritys...it ranks right up there with worrying about spoiled, rich, college graduates who think its smart to hike into Iran....

And that makes it okay to rape a 13 year old girl?

Its never okay to rape a 13 year old, but this seemed to have been somewhat consentual and happened over 30 years ago. Is this case and the expenses involved seriously high on everyones priority list?

he gave her drugs and had sex with her and she was 13! Do you really believe she was in a frame of mind to consent? Not to mention mature enough to consent? I take it you have never had a 13 year old daughter. They have the laws written the way they do for a reason. It would be an injustice if he never had to pay for the crime HE admitted to. Yes, it's worth the expense and the time to make the point that this behavior should NEVER be tolerated.

There has to be more to this than we know. All of a sudden, after 30 years they arrest him? You can't convince me they couldn't have detained him a hundred other times over the years. After all, he hasn't exactly been invisible. I'm sure it all has to do with money...he's got a lot, someone else wants it. This has nothing to do with justice, imo.

The 13 year old (1977)Samantha Geimer testified that Polanski gave her a combination of champagne and quaaludes, and "despite her protests, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her",each time after being told 'no' and being asked to stop.
Polanski was initially charged with rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance (methaqualone) to a minor. These charges were dismissed under the terms of his plea bargain, and he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.
i don't understand what all the fuss is about?

Hannity read the transcript from the girl's testimony and it was awful. The young girl DID NOT consent in ANYWAY to for this guy to sodomize her! Yes, he sodomized her. He did both to this poor girl. Of course, the media will whitewash this crime, because he's a hollywood guy. She told him she wanted to go home several times before he laid a hand on her. He wouldn't let her leave.

I cannot believe that anyone would condone this behavior on a kid OR an adult.

This guy thought he sentence was going to be longer than he pleaded for so he RAN, he wouldn't allow that little girl to run away from him.

What the hell has happened to our society if they think this can be poo-pooed away. wow.

Actually it is because he finally traveled to a country that was willing to arrest and extradite him. France was not willing to do that. Why do you think that Polanski was unwilling to come to America and accept his Oscar?

I want the entire list of directors, actors, etc that signed that petition wanting the release of Polanski. I want to know who I will be boycotting for believing that raping a 13 year old ggirl is OK.

And of course Whoopie has dropped another rung lower (if that is even possible) with her "..He didn't commit 'rape' rape.." comment.
