Maybe I'm missing something? If my daughter was 13 and had sex with ANYONE, (and drugged) I would fight to the end of the earth to have the guy arrested ... if he fled after only serving 42 days in prison on the eve of his sentencing and disappeared for 31 years as a fugitive, I would NOT be playing the sympathy card. What Roman Polanski did was unfathomable. Time does not forgive this crime... having the woman who I sense is feeling pressure to have his crime "erased" does not make it right. I'm an open minded liberal citizen... but 13 year olds need to be protected and who knows what long term effect this has had on her! Polanski is brilliant, talented and directed some of our classic movies... but I also consider him a coward and a rapist. Let him sit in a Swiss Jail, even at 76 - justice needs to be served. From what I'm reading, many people do not agree with me... even Whoppi Goldberg who I ususally agree with on most issues, feels it was not "rape"... Am I missing something?
