Roman Polanski is Not Above the Law

I cannot believe that anyone in their right mind would take the side of a man who pled guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a child, in his case, a thirteen year old he drugged.  And yet, some in Hollywood would have that because he is such a talented guy, the United States should leave him alone.  You know, because he’s such a swell guy.

What the hell is this world coming to?

I say that justice has been put off for much too long, and for years Mr. Polanski has been flaunting the fact that he escaped his sentencing so successfully.  I don’t give a pair of Crocs that he is “too talented” to be punished for raping a young teen.  Since when does being brilliant make you above the law? Phil Spector is a musical genius, but you didn’t see anyone wearing “Free Spector” buttons at his murder trial, did you?

If it was their child who had suffered at the hands of Mr. Polanski, I hardly think their thoughts would be so charitable.

A child molester is a child molester is a child molester.  You could be the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize, and I still would want your ass in jail.  You could be the person who discovered the cure for cancer, but if you sexually molested a kid, I still would want your ass in jail.

I am ashamed that anyone would be  calling for leniency on his behalf. I don’t care if it was thirty years ago. I don’t care that he is married and has children. I don’t care that he thought he was going to be safe in flying to Switzerland.  I don’t care if he is a Holocaust survivor.

He admitted that he drugged and had sex with a thirteen year old, though some creative lawyering bargained it down to a lesser offense,  and his presence in the slammer is long overdue.
