    Actually I could never understand how this Scum has gone with out being snatch off the Streets of Paris, Hell I would have loved to see someone like Dog the Bountry Hunter go over to France and grab him.
    OMG not ART MOVIES !!!! LOL !! S much as it would bend the Constitution there are times that I would like to know that there was a deep dark black ops unit as par of the CIA/FBI KFC I don't care which one that had the missions to take out certain scum buckets and maybe make it look like an accident or natural causes. They could report to the Czar of Getting Rid of SCUM

    I even have a list ready: CHAVEZ, Castro 1&2, The entire Iranian leadership, Khadafi and all of his sons, the guys who don't really run Somalia, all of the Burma leaders, Putin and his favorite dog Medvedev, anyone under 75 who has been convicted of pedophelia etc

    I think he knew but thought he would be safe in Switzerland just like Hitler was.

    I hope the extradition will never happen. We love our most famous rapist here.

    Roman Polanski's 'victim' is mother who wants charges dropped - Telegraph

    However, the enduring legal questions surrounding Polanski's flight from justice have ensured that Mrs Geimer is regularly dragged reluctantly back into the public eye despite her appeals for the case to be dropped.
    "I got over it a long time ago," she has said.
    "I wasn't prepared to carry a lot of bad feelings with me and further damage my life and continue the trauma of it."
    In January, Mrs Geimer filed a legal declaration in Los Angeles formally requesting that the outstanding charges against Polanski be withdrawn.
    She said Los Angeles prosecutors' insistence that Polanski must return to the United States before dismissal of the case could be considered as a "cruel joke being played on me".
    She also voiced anger that authorities had detailed her grand jury testimony in related hearings to the case.
    "True as they may be, the continued publication of those details causes harm to me, my beloved husband, my three children and my mother," she said, adding that it was time for closure.
    "I have survived, indeed prevailed, against whatever harm Mr Polanski may have caused me as a child," she said. Polanski had taken flight, she said, "because the judicial system did not work."
    I know what he did was terribly wrong and sick, although there are questions about whether or not he knew she was only 13 years old at the time, but shouldn't the wishes of the only person who really matters here be taken into consideration? Why aren't the victim's wishes respected? She wants the charges dropped.

    This whole case is a mess. A mother who offers her 13 year old daughter to a sleazy older guy, who then proceeds to drug and rape her despite her protests. Even if he thought she was legal he DID force himself on her. A judge who agrees to a plea bargain and then changes his mind, forcing the guy to flea the country. The poor confused girl pleading for the charges to be dropped so she can go on with her life without having to be brought back into the spotlight time and time again.

    Something's got to give here. I mean come on. Leave the woman alone already. She's done with this ****.

    Hitler is alive and well in Switzerland ? The "former " Nazis that we kept "free" are the ones who had rocket expertise and maybe a few who could help us with the Soviets. That was a moral and inteligence tradeoff we made. We can criticize those people ho ran the country during WW II and after in the cold war but we were not in their shoes. It is just like the Japanese sequestoring action when we invited all Japanese and Japanese Americans to go camping for the duration of the war. In retrospect that was a dumb move, but yes "who knew".

    But we are off topic since Hitler and Polanksy do not have that much in common- one is Jewish the other invited Jews "to go camping. "

    The charges that he's being arrested on are not due to the rape, but due to the fact that he is a fugitive who fled justice. The victim's opinion is irrelevant to the situation at hand, and nothing about this requires her to be brought back into the spotlight.

    How come we don't have an extradition treaty with France? I guess I would have thought we did.


    I was just reading a Reuters article. Apparently the French and Polish are pissed about this:

    Well, alright. But she's still being unnecessarily dragged into this time and again. Why wasn't his status as a fugitive changed as soon as she asked for the charges against him to be dropped?

    There is one, but he was a French citizen.

    I can understand what you are saying so what Polanksy needs is to be involved in some lethal accident. A broken neck may be a good start.

    Who's actually dragging her into this? She voluntarily filed that affidavit after receiving "an undisclosed settlement" from polanski in the civil trial. It certainly doesn't sound like it's the government that's forcing her to get involved.

    Furthermore, just because she wants the rape charges dropped doesn't mean that they get dropped. If that was the case, celebrities would just pay off all the people they hurt and thus avoid prosecution. Finally, he's being arrested for being a fugitive, which is an offense against the state, not the rape, which is an offense against the woman.
