    1. The victim does not determine what justice is. Society does.

    2. There is still the matter of punishment. He raped a 13 year old child. Normal people consider this punishable.
    maybe back than it was punishable. now it is asinine and you should be looking for your Bin Laden and not some 76 year old film maker that is easy enough to find. why now? what Polanski has traveled the world these many years? all of a sudden the US gets a giant hard on for him and wants him arrested. give my a break. this is why your country is such a mess. how much money is all of this costing to do this.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Uhh it's still punishable. He pleaded guilty, then fled the country. There is no statute of limitations for that. And even if he didn't, he committed a serious felony...there are no statutes of limitations for those anyway.

    Huh? What in the world does Bin Laden have to do with anything?

    The US has wanted him arrested and extradited for decades, which is why he hasn't set foot in the US since then. This is merely the first time a nation has complied.

    Really? THIS is why? Because of Roman Polanski? Do go on. You're on a roll.

    he plead guilty and made a deal. the deal was taken back. he was lied to so that makes the entire confession of no value. it was bad advise from his attorney. mistrial.

    well i was just thinking you should spend the money catching someone that might actually be a criminal. Bin Laden for instance.
    he has been all over the world since this time. it is not like he was hiding. how did they get the Swiss to agree to this? he was to Zurich before.
    this is just dumb on so many levels it is funny. i am sitting here laughing at all the responses of those that think this is a good idea. for Christ's sake the US needs to find something to do with their time. it is really getting scary.

    What do you consider more important than justice?

    Like I said before, he should be sentenced in accordance with the deal he originally made. If the judge reneged, that was very unprofessional and Polanski should not be sentenced more harshly. However, that does not negate the fact that he committed a felony for which he has yet to be sentenced.

    I think a nation can look for more than one person at a time. But thanks for your concern.

    According to a Swiss official, they knew where he was going to be, and they had a legitimate extradition request from the US government.

    He broke the law. The fact that he may be punished for something that happened so long ago is his own fault for fleeing in the first place.

    maybe 30 years ago this would be able to be called justice. it would have been the way to go. Roman made a deal it was not kept. he split.

    he has been free around the world for 30 years. there is no other arrests for such as this.

    the woman for years now has been asking that this end for her sake.

    justice is great the problem with this is it is no longer justice it is a US courts Vendetta. which by the way is making the woman involved very unhappy and it is hurting her. so you tell me just what you think justice might be in a case such as this?

    Perhaps he fled justice because he believed no justice was going to happen, I believe I would have done the same, seeing how many still stand ready there with their forks and knives?

    Why would anyone have to ask this question?

    “maybe back than it was punishable. now it is asinine…” - katiegrrl0

    So according to your logic at some point it becomes “okay” to have raped a 13 year old child?

    That’s not only asinine, it’s criminal.

    “..and you should be looking for your Bin Laden and not some 76 year old film maker that is easy enough to find.” - katiegrrl0

    1. Finding Bin Laden is another topic entirely. Try to stay focused, won’t you?

    2. Nobody was looking for Polanski. Everyone knew he was in France.

    “why now? what Polanski has traveled the world these many years? all of a sudden the US gets a giant hard on for him and wants him arrested. give my a break.” - katiegrrl0

    As I understand the story, the U.S. knew where he would be in advance of his arrival (something they’ve not previously known in the past) and he became a target of opportunity.

    “this is why your country is such a mess. how much money is all of this costing to do this.” - katiegrrl0

    How do you put a price on justice?

    So if you don't like the possible results from your crime, you should be allowed to flee, and then come back after awhile and every one just forget it?
