    The reason why it took so long was because he ran to France and France refused to extradite him. The US heard that Polanski would be at this event and it was in a country that would extradite him to the US. Thus they got in contract with law enforcement and had him arrested, and now awaits extradition in jail.

    It is up to the DA to determin if they will pursue a case. the individual has no say in the matter. The DA can pursue charges regardless of what the victim wants since the DA represents society and not that individual. The vicitim can appeal to the court, and that appeal can be dismissed.

    Re: Should Roman Polanski be punished for his crime?

    I think I've made my opinion clear on where I stand on the Polanski case over the past few days. Some may agree with me, some may not - I guess that's what makes us all unique individuals.

    I'm not going to re-visit this topic again, other than to leave you a parting video --

    Why? The individual clearly wants this dropped. She was the victim, not you or I. Neither you nor myself have degrees in psychology or the ability to analyze and evaluate the victim's mental state, so to say that she is psychologically damaged and imply that her desires are therefore skewed is absurd.

    The consequence for speeding is a ticket. The consequence for murder is to be arrested and have a trial, etc. I have never EVER heard a person say that a consequence to an action is ridiculous. That is one of the most bizarre things that I have literally ever heard.
    If the victim wanted to press charges, I would be on board.

    That is just the first one... I simply remember you as one that held keen analytical skills and it seems that you have traded in impartial reasoning with a massive socialist agenda. That is what I have seen and may not be correct though... but this is more evidence. All good. Just an observation. Doesn't make you less of a person or anything... fret not.
    I do not even know how to respond to such an ill-informed accusation. What "socialist agenda" am I pushing?

    Oh, my deepest apologies.

    By the way, who did you vote for again?
    Not Obama, as you so foolishly expected.

    I didn't expect anything; I was merely curious. So who did you vote for and why?

    I would and do consider that a very rude question to ask. We in this nation have a secret ballot for a reason.

    We have been over this many times. I voted for Ron Paul. I voted for him because, like many people who vote for candidates, I felt that he was the best man for the job. Any other questions?

    Write-in? Or was he on the ballot in your state?

    I think Roman Polanski is a great film maker and if he has truly great talent he can make great films from his prison cell be they on film or on little flip books or tattoos.
