Roman Polanski ‘Punished’ With House Arrest For Child Sex Charges

December 4, 2009

Switzerland (ChattahBox) – Fighting extradition to the U.S. for a child sex case he fled in the 70’s, Roman Polanski is enjoying the good life as he is put on house arrest in his $4.5 million mountain chalet.

I realize that he will probably be given over to the U.S. to face the charges he fled decades before, when he was accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl. The house arrest is just awaiting that end, and a pending trial for his crime, which he has admitted to.

However, is anyone else annoyed by how this case is being treated? Polanski was granted bail despite having access to a great deal of funds, dual citizenship that can get him out of the country, a passport, and – oh yeah – he has run before!

Why in the world would Swiss authorities grant this sleaze bag bail, and then just tell him to chill in his gorgeous mansion, after he fled the United States on charges of having sex with a child?

    In most European countries polanski’s acts would not have been a crime.
    Hell, Nebraska allowed 13 year olds to be married at that time.

    Let’s not apply today’s religious prudishness retroactively.

    Yes, I am appalled.
    Appalled by the way the L.A. D.A.’s office has acted, then and now.
    Polanski has been trying to hit a constantly moving target.
    I am appalled by the way people want Polanski to be punished – over and over.

    Even the “victim” wants this case to go away.

    Gill Bates –

    The victim was a child. A thirteen year old cannot engage in sexual activity without emotional repercussions. They have seen the effects that such a thing has on a child of that age. What is more, he was an authority figure significantly older than she was. The fact that you could look at a thirteen year old and say it is alright is appalling, not the fact that Polanski is being made to pay for his crime.

    Because it is a crime. Whether you agree with it or not, he broke U.S. law, then he fled the country. He deserves to go to prison to do his crime, even if some people believe pedophilia should be allowed.
