How Do I Feel About Polanski ?
The guy had sex with a minor who was being pushed at him by her mother, the victim was using the age old 'casting couch' method for advancement. Polanski was abusing a minor for self gratification. All pretty vile all round.
Thirty two years on, the victim does not want charges pressed, she is happily married with children, Polanski to the best of my knowledge has not done anything similar in the last thirty two years, and has not been subject to any extradition requests either.
Suddenly the whole situation changes, as far as I can see Polanski was lured to Switzerland and arrested on an international arrest warrant. When was this issued and who is behind this ?
The only thing that has changed, is the new Obama regime. European residents are being lifted and sent to the States on an increasing rate to be tried before their Courts, like some latter day 'summoned to Rome'.
This is a sinister departure.
