    Fine so the next time som e Women is beat up by her Husban/Boyfriend and the DA want to throw his arse into joil for a DA your ok with the fact tat the Women decide she doesn't want him going to jail.

    We have Laws in the USA this Scum jump bail and the World has been protecting his worthless arse ever since then. Oh and the Judge had final say in what type of sentance he was going ot give this Scum. I suggest you go and look up the actual court case and read the final sentance that his Laywer agree to.

    I can't beleive you actually want this Scum to walk so much for your Femenist Views.

    if the man gets a brand new trial and can tell his side in a free court,( but as we see from the prevailing attitudes here that he is already guilty in your minds)
    so fair trial is out.

    but he knows that there is no free trial there. he is guilty in the minds of the people. he is right to fight this. this is America trying to prove something.
    He will get a trail, that is required by law. He will get a fairer trail than most. His avoiding the US to avoid facing a trail after most likely committing a heinous crime is an act of cowardice, and in combination with his accused crime, makes it highly unlikely that he is in fact a "nice guy".

    he was to be given time served. he was lied to. what can i say. the judge made a deal and lied to coax a confession. Polanski's attorney gave him bad advise so he should get a fair trial. and the woman will not testify so he walks. if the courts did the right thing in the first place and stopped making deals then these things would not come to this. i fully blame your court system for the mess.

    you are calling a persecuted Jew during WWII a coward how dare you. for Christ's sake. he went through what when his wife Sharon Tate was slaughtered and butchered by the Manson Family and you have the audacity to say such a thing. Jesus Mary and Joseph. pleeeeeease.

    Wrong. Get your facts straight. It wasn't forcible rape. It was stat rape and the sentence he was to receive was lenient based on problems that the Prosecutor had with proof. The judge reneged on the deal which is what caused Polanski to flee.

    I'm not condoning the fleeing or the stat rape, however, there were considerable questions underlying the conduct of the girl and her mother and whether Polanski was aware of her age.

    The bottom line...there is a lot of misinformation out there and this post is another example of it.

    Re: Should Roman Polanski be punished for his crime?

    I voted "other". I don't know if he should be punished or not. That is for the court to decide. But I do think he should face his day in court and I believe he was a coward to have left the country.

    No I don't think the victim's opinion is terribly relevant. We are trying to deter people who think they are above the law from doing bad things to today's children. If it was your daughter....?

    I tested myself for neutrality by substituting Polanski for Dick Cheney in this scenario and that clinched it for me.

    Did he run away instead of facing the outcome of his crime? Then he is a coward.

    Wrong again. He was willing to accept the terms of his plea. The Judge reneged and wouldn't accept the deal the prosecutor worked out.

    The judge wanted a multiple year state prison sentence. The DA knew their case was weak and based their plea agreement on the facts that were proveable.

    Thats what caused Polanski to flee
