    @earthworm

    There can be no exceptions to the law. This guy doesn't get to use a get out of jail free card just because he got away with it for thirty years. He's a pervert and he has to pay the price.

    You can't make exceptions to your principles and values. If you could then they wouldn't really be principles and values would they?

    We do have a responsibility to those who live in this country to ensure that fleeing is not a way to evade punishment until it is forgotten.
    if you have a responsibility to those that live there maybe you should find a different set of judges that keep their word when they make a deal. the woman would not place those charges today and wants this nightmare that your courts are causing to end. some kind of justice.

    yes some of us believe that a man's word in the case of the judge should be honored. some like Kangaroo court American justice.

    And that would certainly come up at a trial now if he is brought to the US. That does not change that he is almost certainly a child molester.

    It doesn't change the fact that Polanski raped a 13 y/o girl, then fled justice. After that, it doesn't matter what Polanski was, or wasn't told by some judge.

    And nowhere have I argued that he should be punished more harshly than he plea bargained for. The US courts should accept his guilty plea and punish him in accordance with his deal. But this does not change the fact that he raped a 13-year-old, pleaded guilty, and fled the country.

    just like the untried Bill Ayers is a terrorist in the minds and hearts of Americans. well i can see this going down an old road. he is about as much a child molester as you are. no one really even know what happens. but in America you are guilty before you get to court and stay guilty in the minds and hearts of the masses no matter what the court says.

    OK, I didn't want to say this before, but you have absolutely no ****ing clue what you're talking about. Have you ever even been to the United States?

    Actually he did get to court. He pleaded GUILTY. And then he fled.

    I have never been accused of a felony, let alone child molesting. He has been, and we in this country have certain rules as to how such a situation is handled. He chose to evade those rules for his own comfort.
