    is that like the judge honored his agreement with Polanski. LOL

The judge, right or wrong, changed his mind. Polanski's back up plan in case of such an eventuality was obviously to flea and become a fugitive. Great plan, unless you get stupid and careless. He got stupid and careless.

    Choice -------> Consequence

    Personally, I think that the matter should have been dropped long ago. If he ever voluntarily set foot on US soil, then, yes, by all means, grab the repulsive individual and deal with him through the US courts. But this whole international man-hunt over a 30 year old questionable statutory rape case was just not necessary.
    not just the court system. thanks

    he made a deal and apparently this is how the courts work there.
    the deal was not honored by the judge so he fled. who in his right mind would not make that attempt. the judge and the US court that he was in at the time lied. seems that is what happens in those courts all the time.

    your court system stinks. your judges are no more than con men. when you look at the prisons in your country you see just who the people do not like.

    that is how it is in America even in justice. Polanski may well have done what he was accused of. that was never proven in a trial. but it seems as if the US doesn't like to do it the correct way. there was no trial. there was a deal and the conman judge went against it. i would run from your courts as well. they seem no more than a pick and choose system of who goes and who doesn't.

    now i know why your asinine court room TV shows have such high ratings. because American justice is a joke.
    He plead guilty. It's not a question of whether or not he rapped a 13 year old, he did. This defense of pedophiles is disgusting and all you're doing is taking the time to bash America. Pathetic. The American judicial system is well more fair and open than many other places. While there could be argument for problems on the legislative and policing side; the court system remains well open.

    If all you want to do is sit around and find excuses to bash America, take it elsewhere. If you want to join in the debate, please do so in an intellectually honest manner.

    Have you read the Grand Jury transcript it is posted either in this thread or the other one in BN section. If it actaully had gone to trail he would have been thrown in Jail for Life, his Lawyer told him and he accepted to plead guilty. What ****ing part of that don't you understand huh.
    i did and he was to be jailed without a trial. because the confession was falsely attained.

    I guess we'll never know if the judge would have since Polanski RAN AWAY! He broke more laws by running and fleeing the country instead of having balls and being a man and taking his medicine. Would the judge honored the plea agreement? Probably, but we'll never know because Polanski ran like a French man facing the German army.

    Falsely attained??? Do you have evidence to prove this or are you just making an uninformed guess to back a uninformed opinion?

    a trial would have gone through the courts. and since Americans make everyone guilty in their minds it was best to avoid court. the people in your country make the guilty or not guilty pay whether there was a crime or not. the people make up their mind and there is no such thing as a fair trial in the US. the system is against fairness.
