Roman Polanski was arrested for child molesting, he was on charge for that for years and avoided going to the USA because of the prosecution.
There was public outcry over his arrestment, which of course interfers with a lot of his movies and art going on and some people working for him will lose money and jobs and good press if he goes to jail. Anyway, this is one side – the other was him raping a child, which interferred a lot with this one life.
- Thoughts for Polanski apologists, by another woman raped at 13. – the article on the excellent blog boingboing which pointed me to the very uncanny side of this case
- the transcripts from the actual rape as on court (allegedly, you never know, maybe this is a fake, don’t trust the internet) – uncanny … creepy …
