    The mom was basically a pimp in this situation. Still rape.

    Bah nvm. You obviously have a hatred for America. Since you have such a hatred then don't talk to any more Americans. Only reason I am writing this post while you are temp banned is that you will eventually come back and read it. Do us a favor and take your hatred elsewhere. Or learn to control it and debate intelligently. This forum has a lot to offer it if you set aside your prejudice.

    As I see it, Katie has not presented any good proof of her arguments.. Worse yet, she seems to have a hatred for the American justice .
    Why is this, Katie ?
    Our court system is not perfect; one reform that it needs is jury selection.

    Which is what I don't get.

    It's very hard to imagine a worse sexual crime than what Polanski did -- a powerful man using his influence to dominate and rape a young girl -- and yet so many who would normally be (rightly) aghast focus on the legal minutiae of the case.

    Why? Because he a made a couple of good movies 30-40 years ago?

    Sometimes, I just don't understand people.

    I wonder if all the folks saying that Polanski is no longer a danger and shouldn't be extradited would be happy to leave their 13 year olds' alone with him. Somehow, I doubt it.

    His teenage daughter used to attend the same school as my teenage sister and brother in Paris and Polanski would often come and pick her up after school. None of them has ever been afraid of being raped by that man.

    Of course, none of us has ever tried to set him up either!

    "Set him up?"

    I don't care what the "set up" is, you just don't rape a 13 year old child.

    Personally, I think people who try to defend Polanski are sick in the head.

    You care to explain this one, it's not like no one knew he was going to Switzerland right. Oh and since you think we Americans are so bad the next time one of you Federal Warrents are issued and then re-issued by Interpol we can just look the other way correct, hey I got even a better idea let just put a 100% Taffif on all products from France and to really turn it up close are Emabassy and cancel all VISA from France for your Wine Drinking Commrades, good I'm so tired of the same old BS from you French over this.

    When a crime is committed, there are more victims than just the person who was directly affected. Any true crime has society as it's victim as well.

    That is why, when someone commits a crime of theft, say, and the direct victim says they don't want them prosecuted (for whatever reason), it is just for the person to be prosecuted, nevertheless. And often they are.
