    i don’t understand the purpose of this. he’s been living his own prison sentence for being in a hot-tub in the 1970s in jack nicholson’s house. please…how many us legislators would have given their left arm to be in that hot tub. prosecute polanski? how about prosecuting bush?

    • What prison is that? The one where he lives in a luxury apartment in Paris and dines with the French president? Or is it his chalet in Switzerland?

      And contrary to your reality, not every man gets off on drugging and raping 13 year olds. What does it say about you that you think other men should be envious of that.

    • Mitch Gatewood Says:

      Michael Calligeros are you serious? A man rapes a 13 year old and you want to be in the hot tub? He has been living his own prison sentence? I wish my life were as lush as his ‘prison sentence.’ Pedophiles are the worst kind of criminals. They PREY on kids…not once, but in many cases multiple times. There is a reason we require convicted pedophiles to register with the local police. Why is it that society has decided, in so many instances, that the criminal actions of the rich and famous are somewhat lesser crimes than those committed by the poor and unknown? A person’s accomplishments or stature should not dictate whether or not he, or she, should be sent to prison. The pursuit of justice of a convicted criminal should never waver no matter the time-line. Justice, as we all know, is supposed to be BLIND.

      • michael calligeros makes about as much illogical sense as woody allen and martin scorcese. one can only hope that his idealogical perspective about the pedophile was skewed by his political perspective as it was for woodt freaking wierdass allen and martin scorcese. there is no defense that can be made to justify what he did and NO he has not served any kind of sentence.!. he has been living in FRANCE! …drinking wine! … what a dumm@ss to actually have the audacity to defend polanski..and then split the argument by saying prosecute Bush…at the risk of being redundant …what a dummass

    • Michael actually has a point. What about prosecuting Bush? Why are you all caring so much about a 13 year old girl who went looking for trouble and found it? Oh yeah, it’s because she is an “American” 13 year old girl. Well, how many 13 year old and younger girls do you think the American military murdered when they started bombing Iraq and Afghanistan, under Bush? What is this justice all you American people here are talking about anyway? I don’t think you really know right from wrong, so you should stop pretending that you do.

  2. RomanPolanski is a pedophile and Debra Winger is an idiot. Period. I can’t believe the CNN talking head who is saying “Should Polanski be jailed for having sex with a minor.” First of all he drugged, raped and sodomized a 13-year old little girl. RAPE IS NOT SEX!!! Repeat!! He did not “have sex” with a “minor.” He drugged, raped and sodomized a 13-year old little girl. When will you cowardly, soulless Hollywood scumbags develop morals and even the basest sense of right and wrong???!!! He should be castrated and the removed organs jammed up Debra Winger’s……

    • Excuse me. Did I miss something? Roman Polanski admitted he drugged and raped that little girl. I believe some 13 y.o. girls look like full-blown women BUT I do not believe he was unaware of how young she was. It is his responsibility to know how old his sex partners are. How did she get into that house in the first place? And what the hell was he doing in a hot tub with her? So Jack Nicholson wasn’t there; his live-in lover was, and apparently approved of the incident. I do agree that the U.S. justice system dropped the ball on this one and if the victim says let it go then let it go. After all this time, she is the one who should have a say in this matter. Why am I not surprised that Woody Allen is lobbying for Polanski’s release?

      • It’s not up to the victim to decide to “let it go.” Laws are in place to protect all of us, and no victim can decide, on my behalf, or on the behalf of the public that a child rapist should go free just because the victim says so.

      • Not only those points but also she received a large sum of money from suing him. This was a miscarriage of justice 30 years ago but now after all the that has transpired, let the case go. You are now bringing this women back into something she just wants to be done, she should sue the Justice department for making her relive something she has moved on from. Yes what he did was wrong, but now who is being wrong here? It was clearly a mistake in a man’s life and he has shown that he is NOT a pedophile seeking the company of children (as there have been no other incidents). LET IT GO, MY GOD, funny how Angry wants justice but then takes it to a new level of hatred and malice. Bleeding hearts are always the most hypocritical people.

      • Marti Bommarito Says:

        Where were her parents?

  3. Shame on Woody Allen. he is a Child Molester himself, that is why he defends another Child Molester. What are they thinking protesting his arrest? He Drugged, got her drunk and raped the 13 years old, then he fled the country. And they are outraged that he is arrested? Have they got no shame? Maybe someone should rape their Kids and grand kids, maybe only then they would understand…..

  4. Celebrities are upset that a child rapist who ran is now caught. Debra Winger will do anything to get in front of a camera. No shock Woody Allen is upset. Now, what if the girl died from the drugs and alcohol? Then what? I’ll bet the supportive celebrities would be running as fast as they could to distance themselves from Roman Pedophile Polansky. Just remember one thing, we don’t know how many other child victims there are. He only got busted with this one.

  5. Polanski will be freed, this nonsense charge will not stand, nor will the Swiss, French and Polish government allow for his extradition.

    • So, you think a parking ticket is equal to child rape? What nonsense charge are you referring to?

    • OMG. he admits the rape of a 13 years after he gave her drugs and alcohol, then flee the country. and you say nonsense charge? are you sure you are a normal human?

    • I really don’t understand the outrage surrounding his arrest, from what i’ve read, he pleaded guilty to the rape of a 13 year old girl, then fled the country…why shouldn’t he have to stand up to these charges!?!?

    • Nonsense charge?? You need to put the kiddie porn away right now and get out into the real world. This is a major crime, not a fun little film clip like it is in pornworld.

    • Mike – clearly if this had happened to YOUR 13 year old, you wouldn’t be saying nonsense, you’d be demanding an hour alone in a room with him. If you read her grand jury testimony – she repeatedly said NO. He drugged her, then performed oral sex on her, anally, vaginally and orally RAPED her, ALL THE WHILE SHE WAS CRYING AND SAYING NO. Now she says let it go, it’s not HER choice to make. HE PLED GUILTY. Then he fled. He broke the LAW. It is not YOUR place or the VICTIMS place to say let him go. And the fact that Woody Allen is the first name signed on the petition – it takes one to know one. Hollywood has gotten away with taking the morals of this country so low, that now we have a segment of the population that thinks its perfectly fine for a 44 year old man to rape a 13 year old child because he was sad and depressed? Give me a break.

  6. Talent DOES NOT put anyone above the law – the current outrage of the media makers, politicians, and the film creative community and others is both disgusting and outrageous – as a woman I am grossly offended by it. Whether or not he has paid for his transgression should be decided by decided by the courts and the jury. He admitted to his actions as a pedophile and rapist and by running before facing the consequences became an outlaw. Anyone that states that he already paid for it forgets about the arrogance of Polanski who for years got away with it, lived high and mighty, and continues to defy the laws we all have to live by. To earn freedom and forgiveness he should face the jury and accept the consequences.

    It is a very just irony that he was caught on his way to a “lifetime achievement award”. Anyone with true integrity that warrants such an award does not hurt and abuse others or flaunt the law.

    • Talent does not put anyone above the law, as Zofia says here, but apparently American military might does. The last time I checked, it’s been estimated that more than 100,000 Iraqi children have now been killed, both directly and indirectly, since the war in Iraq began. And you’re whining about one 13 year old getting herself into some trouble with an older man whom she decided to get involved with? Are there any Americans out there who are capable of seeing past their own noses and outside the scope of their reality TV shows? No wonder “mass murderer” Bush got voted in twice!

  7. Listen the guy makes incredible movies, the victim want’s the charges to be over, he spent 42 days in prison already, he escaped from the Nazis, his wife was killed by Manson, let the freaking guy live, he is 76 years old and the last thing he should be doing in his last years is rotting in an American Prison. France’s president, and prime minister are reaching out to the Swiss government, Poland’s government is reaching out to the Swiss government demanding his release not to mention the numerous group that have started everywhere, online, and in person, and all the celebrities that demand his release. No way he is going to actually face a judge here, he is going to be a free man!

    • 42 days is enough for raping a child? then manson should be freed as well. Manson suffered enough more than Polanski did. Why aren’t you asking for him to be freed? why Isn’t the French president asking for manson to be freed? oh wait, is it because manson is not jewish? is it because Manson is not rich? Anyone that asks for a a convicted and admitted child mloester to be freed must be a child molester, just Woody Allen is. he molested his adopted daughter, denied it in court, then a year later he married her.. now he says Plonaski should be freed. What a surprise!!!!

    • That’s total BS. There are two simple facts:

      1.) Polanski is an admitted child rapist.
      2.) Polanski is, by his choice and actions, a fugitive from the law.

      If an exception is made for any reason, where does it stop? Is the message to the public (and the world) that it is ok to rape anyone, including children, if you can pay them off or are talented? The man is talented and has contributed to society but that doesn’t negate the two facts above. Whether his contributions and restitution have been enough to serve justice are for a court to decide. They may very well be enough, but he has to show up there first and serve out the process – something he has been avoiding for years.

      The message needs to be as it is: if you violate the laws of the US, in the US, and are found guilty, you can run but you can’t hide. That should be true of any country. Where and when they arrested him is irrelevant.

      As, for how France and all these other filmakers feel about the whole thing: Perhaps the US should gather all of its child molesters and pedophiles and send them to France like Castro did to the US with his criminals in the late 70s. Or what if the US Dept of Corrections just set up “meetings” between those pedophiles and Woody Allen or Martin Scorcese’s grandchildren? How would they feel about it then?

      Hollywood just continues to prove that you can be extremely talented and still be a dumbass.

  8. And I’m sure everyone would be taking the same stance if Michael Jackson had fled the country when initially accused of sexual assault in the early ’90’s. I don’t care if he’s old, he still raped a child and then paid her off to make it go away, he must be held responsible for his actions.

  9. I didn’t really hold much of an opinion about Polanski before. He was before my time. Thank you Hollywood daydreamers and socialists. Now I am convinced he should go to prison for his crimes of drugging and raping a child, then leaving the country to avoid prosecution. Are these people serious? They think he should be forgiven for his crimes because he is “one of the greatest contemporary filmmakers”? These Hollywood people really do think they are more important than they are.

  10. hehe Blame it on the Jewish factor right. It happened 32 years ago, the victim wants this to be over, Roman was sued and they both reached a settlement, so why don’t you take your ignorance and take a nap you redneck.

  11. Amazing, Kanye took a microphone from Taylor Swift and Hollywood wanted to crucify him (can’t stand Kanye either, but perspective)…Polanski rapes a 13yr old and “hey it was a long time ago and he made some really cool movies”.

  12. I seriously can’t comprehend how his extradition is even up for question.

    If it were my 13 year old son or daughter that was drugged and raped (begged him to stop, and he sodomized her I might add) I don’t think it would matter if 10 years or 1000 years passed. Imagine not only what she had to deal with because of his actions but what her parents had to deal with following the crime! Yes, the parents should be considered victims of his crime as well. He pleaded guilty to a lesser offense and thought he was going to receive a sweetheart deal with no jail time. Once the specter of actual jail time (that would fit the severity of the crime I might add) came into the picture he fled the country and became a fugitive.

    It can’t be up to the victim to decide what is just and unjust, not to mention punishment for crimes would become too subjective. Plus, people with money could just buy off their victims. Isn’t it bad enough that rich celebrities can buy teams of lawyers to defend them?

    If he wasn’t a celebrity this wouldn’t even be an issue.

    If time somehow makes a difference with such a serious crime then I guess someone could argue there is no point in pursuing the Nazi war criminals because so much time has passed. Maybe they should make some movies too if that’s what it takes to be absolved of their crimes.

    • Well, it wasn’t your daughter, so you don’t have to imagine that. You are the one who is being subjective. You don’t know what she had to deal with, and in her own words, she is more traumatized by the attention she is getting now than what happened all those years ago. It sounds like she was a young slut hanging around with the wrong crowd and looking for trouble. Who care about American justice anyway? I sure don’t! This is another example of arrogant American “justice” going outside their own borders and trying to police and manipulate the outside world with their stupidity (I’m surprised they’re not trying to force the world to convert back to using fahrenheit and miles). By the way, the main purpose of punishment is to cause pain to discourage a bad behavior. Obviously, it’s way too long for any kind of punishment to change his questionable behavior decades ago, and he’s already settled with the girl in a way that is probably many times more satisying (money!) to her than the “rape” situation she got herself into was traumatic. Any punishment after such a long period of time is for the emotional satisfaction of the victims, and she absolutely doesn’t need it.

      • Sounds like Frank, Mike, and several other men on here are pedophiles as well! A 13 year-old slut? Most 13 year-old girls are not mature enough to understand there can be horrible consequences to their actions. Grown men do know the consequences, but some think they are above the law because their morals are so warped. She didn’t put it out there for him as you are trying to insinuate. He had to DRUG her! As far as American justice goes buddy, if you do a crime in a country, you deal with the justice OF THAT COUNTRY! This wasn’t a crime in France that the American justice system stuck its nose into. This was crime committed in the US by a French pig who ran back to France with his filthy tail between his legs. And criminals are not punished for the emotional satisfaction of their victims you idiot! Grow up and grow a pair. You are a disgust to women everywhere!

      • Listen to hatemonger Marie here. She exemplifies many of the things that are wrong with American people, particularly the American justice system. And check out her nice use of logic: Polanski had sex with a girl who was 13; even though many people support Polanski for the reasons that you see in this blog and everywhere else in the world, she was only 13; therefore, all those people are Pedofiles. If great thinkers like Marie here were the ones who helped develop the general state of ignorance and arrogance that the rest of the world sees in America today, that would help explain a lot of things. Anyway, I think your comment is nonsense that most 13 year old girls are not mature enough to understand there can be horrible consequences to their actions. I know what 13 year old girls can be like, since they used to be my peers. She was obviously one who knew what she was doing. Sorry, a 13 year old isn’t as innocent and pure as you would like to fantasize her to be. She should have murdered both him and Jack Nicholson. Then she could have gotten away with it because she was too young and innocent to understand the consequences of murdering someone, right? Give me a break!

      • I disagree.

        I don’t consider a subjective viewpoint as improper in this situation.

        I feel that no matter how the victim may have behaved it was up to Roman to behave an adult.

        My understanding is the victim was there for a private photo session, not to be raped.

        Punishment is not only to discourage bad behavior with respect to the perpetrator, but also to discourage other individuals from committing that same crime.

        I’m assuming you’re not an American by your comments. You don’t have to care about American Justice – until you commit a crime in America. However, that works both ways…if an American commits a crime in your country I would expect America to extradite the criminal at your country’s request.

  13. Oh I am sure she’s over it, once she got her few Million in the settlement, it’s over, she want’s this over with, he does, and many others want these dumb charges to be dropped. It’s been dealt with already! This is just another little act by America trying to show how tough they are, oh and they rule the world, and they think because Swiss is giving Polanski up, that they will also give up tons of the American names that evade tax laws just to put their money into Swiss accounts. This is a political move, it’s bull and it won’t hold up. Europe won’t allow for this crap!

  14. I think the point isn’t about the girl anymore, even if it still unacceptable. It’s about the fact that he ran away from justice and many men without his notoriety wouldn’t have an ounce of sympathy from those filmmakers.

    If he was called Johnson and wouldn’t be a Jew, nobody would care and everyone would want hime to be severely sentenced.

    The guy even has the sympathy from CNN with an everything but objective coverage of this story.

    Justice does not have a peremption date…for war criminals, murderers on the loose or perverse filmmakers, thanks god !

  15. Hollywood is filled with stupid idiots. This man drugged, and raped a 13 year old. I dont care if she wants to let it go. This is beyond her choice as to whether she wants it to go or not. This is for all the past 13 year olds, present 13 year olds and future 13 year old girls that this could happen to. WHo knows how many other 13 year old girls in France he may have done this to also. I just get so enraged at the thought of people sticking up for this man. That is the miscarriage of justice! THIS MAN IS A PEDOPHILE AND NEEDS TO BE IN JAIL. HE SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO DO THIS AGAIN.

    • Why is everyone saying he is a pedophile? Things aren’t as black and white as you illogical people imagine them to be. Do you remember junior high school? Well, I do, and I remember half the girls in my class were sluts, and most talked about sex more than about mathematics or science class. There was one girl who had a 45 year old boyfriend, and I’m quite sure they had sexual relations, even though she was barely 13. Why must you think that a 13 year old girl has to be a child? U.S. laws are not exactly a reflection of the ultimate morality people should have. This is a place where showing a nipple on TV is a bigger outrage than watching people explode and get cut open, and where sharing a song in a file sharing program can get you a bigger prison sentence than killing your wife. What a joke!

      • Frank, you are making it blatantly obvious that you are a pedophile also. Please continue topost your idiotic views so we may see how sick you actually are.

      • Sure, Rick. I give you a bunch of facts and talk about my observations in junior high school, and I’m a sick pedophile. Take a good look, everybody. Rick here is an example of the typical emotion-driven, irrational thinking that the people who want to roast Polanski have. Hey, blog owner: can you please require that someone pass an IQ test before being able to post a blog on here?

  16. The people of Hollywood think of themselves as modern day nobility. They can’t stand that one of their own might actually be held accountable for his criminal actions.

  17. michael calligeros Says:

    i think their is a misunderstaning (and perhaps a mis-stating of my original comment). it all feels like a convenient recepticle for outrage in the midst of exponentially more important issues. the sufferring that is meted out to millions of people every day by (in my opinion…and judging my estimation of polanski’s character) millions of more willful, ignorant, brutal, venial men (and women) deserves much more attention than this issue.

    this is a red herring.

  18. Marti Bommarito Says:

    Rape is wrong. Why does the age of the victim make any difference? In this country parents are prosecuted for allowing their children to be out beyond curfew. Why are no charges being brought against the victim’s parent’s or, why was the child not taken by CPS following the incident?

  19. I can tell you this. I have a 12 year old daughter. If she were to subject to the crimes that Polansky commited there would not be a place on this earth he could hide. I would hunt him and terminate his sorry life. If you don’t or can’t see why he should not be punished for his crime then you are a HUGE douchebag. So what that he made great films. I make great guacamole. Does that excuse me from any crimes I might commit?

    • If your 12 year old daughter is so slutty that she makes a decision to become a late night date of a 40+ year old man and have drinks with him in his hot tub, then she probably deserves to be raped. And you would deserve to be called an idiot, dysfunctional father for raising such a tramp and allowing it to happen in the first place. Termination of yourself would probably be the better option.

      • Frank is a huge douchebag.

      • Craig is an American redneck who still thinks using a gun is the best way to solve problems. He probably also believes that a god created the world 6000 years ago, and that the first sin was caused by a woman listening to the words of a talking snake.

  20. Sorry….I meant to say if you can’t see why he SHOULD be punished……

  21. DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? YES? GO TO JAIL. DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? YES? GO TO JAIL. What the hell is everyone’s problem? What do you need? IF YOU ARE 43 YEARS OLD AND YOU HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD YOU GO TO JAIL. Bush? Cheney? Bambi? A guy named Carl? None of that matters. UNDERNEATH ALL THE BULL#$&% is, DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? YES? GO TO JAIL. Is everyone some kind of idiot zombie? For the love of god what do you need. HE %$#@*&% said he did it.

  22. inst it interesting that Woody Allen who “At age 19, married 16-year-old Harlene Rosen.” would defend him. Allen is a pedophile himself so it stands to reason he would defend other pedophiles

  23. Are you kidding me since when to the rights of a rapist trump those of their victims. I don’t care how long ago it was he needs to take responsibility for what he did and pay the price just like everyone else. These other filmmakers I am sure would have a different take on it if this was their child…. shame on all of you for supporting this pervert and to beat all you were doing a tribute to him…… What about the little girl that has had to live with this all her life, I myself am a survivor and this is not something that you ever forget and it effects you in every aspect of your life. I give koodos to the young lady’s bravery and wish her a closed chapter in her life and from one survivor to anther… we are only as weak as we allow ourselves to feel and we are as strong as ever because we survived.

  24. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/polanskicover1.html

    1. why did the mother allow her 13 year child to be alone with a forty-something year old…
    2. The child had tried alcohol/drugs before the incident…
    3. She didn’t look 13…
    4. She took some/all items of clothing on both occasions that she met up with polanski…
    5. she’d had previous experience with sex prior to polanski…
    6. the social norms were different in the 70’s…

    With all this info… does this mean she wanted it to happen? She was asking for it? Consented to it? No.
    She was THIRTEEN YEARS OLD. she was a CHILD. polanski was an ADULT. and it was RAPE. not the kind whoopi described… was it “rape rape” (wasn’t aware there was a difference o_O) it was RAPE… child abuse. Victim may no longer care that he pay for his crime since he already has paid with the “greens.” but the state of california requires that he pay for his crime.
    anywho… i’m heart broken that almodovar would support such an individual. sigh.

  25. This may have happened years ago. But the point is it should have never happened. I understand stars make mistakes just like regular people do. The big difference that I am upset about. Why do people who are famous never punished for their mistakes. We are. They use their fame and publicity to get themselves out of serving anytime. Are they afraid we are going to stop watching because they make mistakes? I only stop watching when they think they are better than me and refuse to do the time for their crime. If Roman were a real man he would come back and serve his time. Because a real star in my eyes would own up to their mistakes and take their punishment. That young girl lost her innocence that night and she will never get that back.Yes, she is an adult now but that one incident will stay with her for the rest of her life. So Roman you did the crime, be a man and take your punishment.

  26. I am amazed at even the small number of people who are backing or supporting Polansky. HE RAPED A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL. If you don’t see why he deserves prison the you are a huge douchebag. And maybe it is a little about America flexing our muscles. So what? I wonder why so many people criticize America but so many people want to come here to live. America isn’t perfect. No place on earth is perfect. But I would prefer to live in a place where I can defend my family and land than in a place that allows pedophiles to have rights. Throw a dart at a map of Europe and chances are you will hit one of those countries….. How about the next time a socialist country invades it’s leftist neighbor they go piss up a rope.

  27. Impartial Observer Says:

    The only reason he is not in jail is because he is rich and famous, nothing more.

    Funny that Woody Allen and Scorsese actually think that people would give a damn what they think. The wacko-liberal sesspool that is Hollywood has officially gone off the deep end.

  28. Oh for the love of God, but this is ridiculous. First off, Polanski didn’t rape anyone. The sex was consensual. Wrong, yes, but nonetheless consensual. And he didn’t drug her, but only gave her champaign. He went to jail. Not just any jail, but a jail where he was mistreated and abused. This was part of the plea bargain he made with the court. The judge, wanting to score some points with the public, rejected the deal after Polanski had served his jail time and undergone the psychological evaluation the court had ordered. No longer trusting the court, he fled. He’s been in exile now for over 30 years and his career severely impacted. Even the woman he had sex with has petitioned the court to have this case dropped and doesn’t want to have to go through this all over again. If the “victim” says drop it, it should be dropped. But that’s not enough for Americans whose minds live in the gutter. A sex case excites them and pedophilia really gets them worked up.

    • DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? YES? GO TO JAIL. DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? DID HE HAVE SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL? YES? GO TO JAIL. What the hell is everyone’s problem?

    • We have a law here that says if you have sex with an underage girl, whether or not she CONSENTS, it is rape…STATUTORY RAPE! It is a travesty that some people in this world think it’s ok to have sex with a child, even if that child puts it out there. It is even a bigger travesty that so many people believe that they are above the law. Everyone who defends this pig Polanski is morally bankrupt.

      • yes we do have laws here and the Judge is the one that broke them, he tried to take justice into his own hands after the defense and prosecution settled the case. Even the prosecutor suggested he should flee the country. Marie you should really know the facts of the case, google it, you will be amazed how this judge tried to be subvert the laws to impose his own form of justice. Just go and get yourself educated on the matter and stop being led around by your own emotions. He has never done anything like this again and was honest to the court system and was prepared to pay for his mistake. It wasn’t until the Judge was going to break the law did he flee.

  29. Militarymale Says:

    Here is some facts you seem to have left out.
    1. He was tried and found guilty
    2. He fled the judicial system by going to another country
    3. He has yet to serve any time and fled the law (another Felony for those of you unfamiliar with the law).
    4. He has yet to serve one day of his sentence for having sex with a minor

    Regardless of where he was caught or how long ago it was his sentence still stands and he should be charged with fleeing the law as well and enjoy prison behind bars. Apparently for most this wasnt your daughter raped and he evaded punishment leaving the country. The fact film makers are taking up for him tells me they are ok with the fact he did this to a underage girl and believe its ok. IDIOTS>

    • wow everyone should really read the facts of the this case and understand what is going on… Go read the facts and understand what this Judge tried to do (he is the one that should be put in jail for overstepping his duty as a judge). Go read the facts and come back and tell us all that you are sorry…

  30. I guess Reality is a huge douchebag now.

  31. Let’s go a step farther. I suggest a ban of all his films as well as Woody’s and let’s have a huge bonfire to burn them all with both these pedophiles on top of the heap.

  32. And let me add, Reality…… What twilight zone episode do you live that lets a 13 year old girl have consesual sex with a grown man. Saudi Arabia? Where its common practice to marry a 10 year old. Or Yemen to marry a 12 year old and have her die giving birth?

  33. Oh please, Polanski is 76 years old, the victim reached settlement in civil court, get over it. Swiss, France, and Poland won’t allow for him to be brought back to face this nonsense 32 years later.

    this is idiotic….

    there a plenty of 13-15 year old women/girls whatever (visit africa for a different spin) who are attractive to men sexually. mix in the the culture of the 70s, the drugs, the hollywood hils….

    at no time does the legality enter into the equation. i hang out with plenty of guys here in nyc who are over 40…and openly lust after youthful feminine sexuality.

    rape is one thing. statutory rape has always been a grey area.

    and if it was my daughter, i would say good job.
