After spending thirty-two years living the life of a carefree sociopath in France and three days as a child rapist in a Zurich detention center while he waits to be extradited to the United States for raping a 13-year old California girl in 1977, Roman Polanski is reportedly in a “fighting mood” and will fight any and all attempts that will force him to man the fuck up and serve his sentence that he already plead guilty to before running like an escaped slave. Yes, shocking I know. MSNBC reports:
Polanski has told Swiss officials that he will contest a U.S. request that he be transferred to the United States, attorney Herve Temime said in an e-mail. Temime said Polanski’s legal team would try to prove that the U.S. request was illegal and that the Oscar-winning director should be released from Swiss custody. “Taking into account the extraordinary conditions of his arrest, his Swiss lawyer will seek his freedom without delay,” Temime said. The lawyer said he was able to speak with Polanski from his Zurich cell and that the director was allowed to meet with his wife, French actress Emmanuelle Seigner. “He was shocked, dumbfounded, but he is in a fighting mood and he is very determined to defend himself,” Temime said. Now a complicated legal process awaits all sides. While France expressed hope that Polanski would be freed shortly, Swiss officials said there would be no rash decision.
To make things perfectly clear, Roman Polanksi drugged and anally raped a 13-year old child. That’s all you need to know. He was 42, she was 13, and he gave her a quaalude, refused to take her home when she asked, then fucked her in the ass. It doesn’t matter if her mom said it was ok, it doesn’t matter if she looked older than 13, it doesn’t matter if he’s a brilliant director. He stuck his dick in a 7th grader after he drugged her. End of story. You can justify it or reconcile it however you want to make the case for letting this sexual predator go, but then I’d call you a fag and kick your teeth in. Samantha Geimer is the victim, not Polanski. She only wants the case dismissed because she just wants this to be over. Much like how I want Grey’s Anatomy to be over.
UPDATE II: I got tired of looking at Roman Polanski’s face, so I replaced it with a picture of Glen Quagmire. Heh heh, alllllright.
UPDATE: Here are a list of names in the entertainment industry who have signed the FREE POLANSKI! petition. Woody Allen is obviously no surprise, but fuck you Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, and Darren Aronofsky.
