CRIME AND PUNISHMENT - REALITY AND FANTASY

Roman Polanski

In Recent News

On February 25, Polanski was scheduled to appear in a Polish court to attempt to prevent extradition to the United States. The hearing was rescheduled to April 2015 in order to get additional documentation from Switzerland – where Polanski lived and the United States also attempted to extradite him from. Polanski is basically jumping from one country to the next over the last four decades, in order to prevent extradition and arrest in the United States.

The Crime

In 1977 Roman Polanski pled guilty to drugging and raping a 13 year old girl. While awaiting sentencing he fled to France.

Real Punishment

After fleeing the criminal justice system in the US, Polanski has managed not only to live openly in France – where child rape is apparently regarded as no big deal – but to continue his work directing films and win awards.

The law in our hands

This is the perfect example of the fact that there are clearly two different types of justice; one for media stars like Bill Cosby, OJ Simpson, and Roman Polanski, and one for everyone else. You can be sure that a poor black man who drugged and raped a 13 year girl would still be rotting in jail, while rich and famous Polanski lives large. The penalty for child rape should be death; or at least a very long prison sentence. While Polanski has admitted his guilt, he has never paid the price for his crime.
