    And you'll be punishing the victim even more by making here testify in court and such. Willing to push law to hurt the innocent? Interesting.

    Yeah, I think so. This is an exceptional case with some unfortunate side effects, but I think the pursuit of justice is important, and consistency in laws.

    1) I reject that having her testify is "punishing" her,

    and

    2) There's no reason for her to testify.

    Fair enough. I just disagree, but that's how things go around these parts!

    This is very funny; she doesn't need to testify. The case is done and he was already sentenced.

    The ONLY thing that remains is a hearing on his new crime of fleeing justice and how much additional time will be tacked onto his original sentence.



    I find it amusing watching those who defend such immoral and illegal conduct now try to spin this as an effort to hurt the innocent; you voted for Obama didn't you?

    I get a kick out of you lambasting people like Dragondad. The concept of irony seems lost on you. Everything's a partisan issue, even the extradition of creepy old sexual offenders. What a sad world you must live in.

    So, basically, this guy commits what is literally the worst of examples of male sexual dominance – using his position of power to extract sexual satiation for his basest indulgences against a truly helpless girl – and the people who want to see him punished for it don't care about the victim?

    Or we could say that people who wish Polanski to be punished for a crime he possibly did not commit, since nobody here knows the details of this case, are just repressed child molester?

    He committed it. That part is not in doubt.
