Roman Polanski Miscalculates
You see, Polanski was safe in France, where he was born of Polish parents, which will not extradite its citizens, at least those with artistic merit, for mere sex crimes outside France. But the Swiss don't have any ties to him and, in truth, they are a little more Germanic in their respect for and adherence to the law. I don't know if Polanski had gone to Switzerland before, but he did so apparently at his peril.
The guy, as a homeless child, survived the Holocaust in Poland, where his mother died in Auschwitz, and decades later had his beautiful wife and unborn son slaughtered by the Manson crazies (one of the actual knife wielders died in prison just this past week, may she burn in hell forever). He's made some great movies. You want to cut him some slack
But it was a 13 year old girl, saying no, don't do that to me. Over and over and over.
Time to face the music, pal.
