And shame on you, Whoopi Goldberg and the rest of Hollywood! You who think the "poor widdle thing has already been punished by having to stay away from his dear country all these years" - DO YOU GET IT? This piece of slime DRUGGED AND RAPED a child, barely 13 years old. DO YOU GET IT? This pedophile DRUGGED AND RAPED A 13 YEAR OLD CHILD. So what if he makes good movies? I'd happily, joyously live without good movies than see this piece of slime go free.
Given my druthers, I'd much rather see this child-rapist behind bars, where I know he will be treated as he deserves. Evil, I know, given the state of prisons in the US, but oh so apt for Polanski.
You would be within your rights to ask why I haven't done anything about this until today. Because I didn't know he had drugged her first, before raping her. Because I had only heard his side of the story. No excuse, I know. I did know that his victim was young, but I didn't know she was literally a child. I didn't know what I could do about it.
Here's something I can do about this - I can at least try to publicize this petition to extradite Polanski and bring him to the US to face his crimes.
