Why Give Roman Polanski A Pass?

free polanski

What in the hell are people thinking?  If Michael Vick were to have fled the country after killing those dogs would we have a flood of people protesting against his extradition in order to face the music?  Of course not!  I mean people are opposed to the man actually working again, let alone getting away without punishment.

Yet, Roman Polanski actually has a gaggle of people crying foul about this disgusting pedophile being extradited to face the music finally for raping a 13 year old girl.  Now I don’t know about anyone else but hasn’t this man been allowed to be on the run for far too long?  I mean he has pretty much lived his freaking life.  And just now we want to attempt to nab him.  HA!

I understand that his victim no longer wishes to see him get justice for what he did and hey those are her views.  But you know what; she isn’t the one who decides whether or not this perv gets what he deserves.  Maybe she has finally made peace in her life with what occurred and doesn’t want to drudge up the past.  But that doesn’t mean that he should pay no penalty.

Now back to this gaggle of people protesting.  Their main complaint is that Mr. Polanski is such a great director and so talented that he shouldn’t have to worry about those skeletons from his past.  And I have also heard that his mother was killed in a concentration camp.  As if any of this matters.  It didn’t matter to Texas that a man was clearly mentally disabled when they put him to death for his crimes.  So why does it matter that he has had adversities in his past.  Haven’t we all?

I don’t think it is about the statute of limitations on the crime since he did plead guilty.  By admitting guilt he was forgoing the need for a trial.  All that was left was the put the dude behind bars like any other criminal.  I see this as a serious double standard.  Maybe other rapists or pedophiles never intend to rape or “seduce” any more children either.  And maybe they are skilled at their profession, so why should they have to pay for their crimes?

I guess the hypocrisy gets me.  We cry about the fact that so many perverts do very little time after assaulting children.  Then turn around and want to make exceptions for those we see as somehow better than the run of the mill criminal.  Would he be receiving this same treatment if he were let’s say, Spike Lee?  Would that guy get a pass?

We know this guy couldn’t even get a pass from people when he put it straight to Clint Eastwood about his portrayal of WWII.  People wanted to string him up for his comments to Clint.  But who is above the law?  Who can obstruct justice without as much as a blink of an eye?  Where is the outrage?  Where is the disgust at what he did?

I guess it is just me who thinks that we should NOT look lightly upon these perverts who can and will destroy lives when given the chance.  People say that he hasn’t done this again, but how do we know for sure.  He might have left a trail of 13 year old victims around Europe who were either too afraid to tell or cowed out of it.

Maybe having equality could start with the little things such as making sure that you receive the same punishment for your crime no matter the criminals, race, creed, wealth or religion.  But we know that is just wishful thinking.   SOME of those with status will always be able to skirt justice.  Because it is people who wish they were like them, who will allow them this privilege.   If you feel that he shouldn’t have to face the music, why?

    I wonder how these protesters would feel about exonerating Marcus Garvey. Just food for thought.

  2. Dessalines,

    Very good point! But we both know that people will say “well that’s different.”

    Thanks for the reply.

  3. I personally think anyone giving Polanski a pass is an utter retard. I read somewhere that someone from France said something to the effect that this is the ugly side of America showing itself by actually trying to force the issue….

    but what can you do…the guy was french afterall! LOL

    A pedophile is a pedophile. He needs to own his crime and pay the penalty. Wear that pedophile tag for what is left of his life. Thomas Jefferson molested and had children with a young girl no older than his own 11 year old daughter, Strom Thurman, at age 20, molested and had a child with a young girl who was a 14 year old maid in his parents home, Woody Allen has naked pictures of his underage adopted daughter and only comes out with his affair with her when she turned 18. They must all wear their crimes and be called what the are.

  5. Mike, I understand that countries want to support their own. But I agree with you that this is retarded for sure.

    Aaron,

    It is no wonder how these people use status to get away free as a bird with these disgusting crimes.

    Thanks both of you for the replies.

    It’s both status and white male privilege at work.

  7. Imagine how people would have reacted if R. Kelly bolted for Europe before he could be sentenced. It doesn’t take much to imagine the United States pulling out all the stops to have him extradited. And he would come back to face sentencing like a runaway slave had to face a plantation owner.

    Peace

  8. BrotherP,

    So true indeed! Too bad it’s so true because it sounds funny. He (R.Kelly) would have never made it to the airport. They would not have let him walk away after pleading guilty. They would have moved to sentencing immediately.

    Thanks for the reply.

  9. Support their own????? Why? Would you want some pedophile to represent YOU as an American? If the situation were reversed I’d be saying fry the guy. Preferably in public as a example to those who may desire to follow in his footsteps.

  10. Jay Burns,

    You hit it on the head! I AM saying fry this guy. I was agreeing with Mike that countries tend to support their own. Like the way we (this country) not me, supported the boy who vandalized cars and was getting a caning in another country. I thought he was getting what he deserved. This guy sickens me to the core. He felt that he could drug, rape AND get away with it. And you know, he DID! At least so far.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Thank you!
    If we are to consider ourselves moral at all, it would require that we act consistently when dealing with lawbreakers. Justice isn’t merely a matter of convicting someone, it’s also a matter of serving the time that is necessary to administer justice as fairly as we can. We not only owe it to Polanski to give him his just time, he owes it to us to do what he is morally obligated to do, which is to serve his time.

    IT IS ALL BECAUSE HE IS A JEWISH WHITE SMALL GENITALIA MALE.

    REMEMBER HOW THEY DEMONIZED MICHAEL JACKSON AND MADE FUN, STILL DO OF R KELLY. REMEMBER HOW THEY TREATED THE KOBE BRYANT AFFAIR TREATED AS RAPE. REMEMBER HOW THE WHITE WAS ANGRY WHEN OJ WAS ACQUITED.

    SURE POLANSKI OLD FART IS DISGUSTING. HE SHOULD WE SEE THAT THE WORLD IS NOT FAIR AND STILL IS WHITE SUPRAMACY.
    ONLY WHITE MEN CAN GET AWAY WITH HIDEOUS CRIMES.
