FYI, the Swiss INVITED Polanski to Switzerland for the film festival only to arrest him when he arrived.

Fucking awesome.


Wouldn't it be something if a situation like this caused World War III?

So Roman Polanski being invited to Switzerland and then subsequently arrested there and extradited to the US to face charges of rape against a minor is analogous to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by the Black Hand in Sarajevo? It's crazy, but you may be on to something here.

It's times like this that I hate bleeding heart liberals.

I've heard a lot of "but - hey - the case is so old that arresting this man is silly!" and "have we forgotten how difficult Roman Polanski's life was?"

... Also, who is spreading this crap that he served his time? He was sentenced to psychiatric evaluation for 90 days. He was released after 48. When it looked like the judge was going to send him back for the remaining 42 days, he fled to France.

I like how the second editorial defending a rapist, written by John Farr, awkwardly segues in to a brief summary of Polanski's films and than ends with:

Given that Jews have been rather successful in getting criminals (read: conscripts) extradited for trial 60 years after the crimes were committed, this seems fairly benign.

Yup, then all you need to do is end the article with a short list of famous videogame rapes (Col. Custard, Pyramid Head, generic hentai title etc.) and a URL to your site.  Bulletproof.

Actually, this is mostly for Kosma:

Samantha Geimer fulfills 32-year-old diabolical scheme against unsuspecting director, Roman Polanski

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND (AP) - Zurich police apprehended 76-year-old Roman Polanski on Saturday, set to be extradited to the United States as part of Samantha Geimer's decades old plot to seduce and discredit the Polish director.

Geimer hatched her fiendish plan the summer of 1977, when she plead with the emotionally crippled director for a private photography session, preferably inside actor Jack Nicholson's vacant and seedy mansion.

Polanski reluctantly agreed when Geimer, then 13-years-old, had her mother approach the director and tell Polanski that it was her daughter's dream to be photographed by the 44-year-old man for the French edition of Vogue.

Things quickly got out of hand when Geimer asked Polanski to "make yourself comfortable" as she began to change into very provocative wardrobe.

The mood intensified after Geimer told to the director to fetch them two glasses of champagne to celebrate their session together. When questioned about her age, Geimer informed the shy, timid director that she was "old enough".

Polanski returned to find the underage siren topless in a jacuzzi, bubbles barely concealing her naked flesh. The stunned, sweaty old man stood in disbelief as Geimer told Polanski that he should "come inside" and "that the water feels great". Noticeably shaken, the frail director approached the pool, when Geimer offered Polanski a quaalude she had purchased off a street corner.

Polanski, a naive homebody, asked Geimer what the pill was.

"Oh, it's just a vitamin, silly boy," said Geimer according to court documents. She then proceeded to trail her seductive finger down Polanski's chest, telling him that the pill would make him feel "really, really good".

Polanski woke up the next day in a groggy state of undress with the police at his door, after Geimer submitted a false statement accusing the Polish director of rape.

Sources say that Polanski, who has made several pretty awesome films, did not have the capacity to resist Geimer's wily charms after enduring the tragic murder of his wife and the loss of his mother at the hands of the Nazis.

As Polanski's trial appeared to shift in his favor, the depraved teenage girl threatened to turn the proceedings into a media circus and "turn [Polanski's] life upside down." Polanski, obviously fueled by flashbacks of Nazi Europe, fled to Europe to avoid persecution.

Polanski lived in a constant state of fear for decades, even as he remarried and had children, that Geimer would reemerge and taunt the shy director with even more allegations.

His nightmare came true in 1997, when Geimer filed a civil suit suing the director for millions. Polanski settled out of court for an unknown amount, but Geimer promised the director over a pixelated AOL webcam chat that she would "not be ignored".

Sometime afterwards, Geimer discreetly formed the Zurich Film Festival in 2004, with public founder Karl Spoerri acting as her proxy. After several years, Geimer's ruse to lure Polanski to the festival with the promise of a life time achievement award finally came to fruition.

French and Polish officials, who are big fans of The Pianist (and even The Ninth Gate), have argued that Polanski should be released because his films are admittedly "pretty good".

"I mean, did you hear about his new movie?" asked one French official, "It's going to star Ewan McGreggor and Pierce Brosnan! If that doesn't warrant a pass, then I don't know what does."

What I want to know is who is pushing for this so much. I mean almost 30 years of the US not even trying to get Polanski and now they go fullthrottle after him? Its apparently not the victim herself pushing for his arrest, so who? Is there really someone who hates Polanski's films just that much in the US attorney's office?

They've always tried to arrest him. That's the reason why he won't go to Britain or a number of countries that have extradition treaties in place with the United States.

The only difference is that this event was well publicized, so the district attorney's office was able to get everything in place. He's never announced his visits to Switzerland before, and the Swiss don't check passports thoroughly from other European residents.

Also worth noting, when Polanski tried to have the charges dismissed against him overseas, the judge said he could not do so without appearing in front of the court - but he also said there was serious misconduct in his original trial.

If Polanski would have manned up and resolved it then, he probably would've fared better.

That article is biased; it didn't list a single one of his directorial credits.

Quote
Roman Polanski instructed her to get into a jacuzzi naked, refused to take her home when she begged to go, began kissing her even though she said no and asked him to stop; performed cunnilingus on her as she said no and asked him to stop; put his penis in her vagina as she said no and asked him to stop; asked if he could penetrate her anally, to which she replied, "No," then went ahead and did it anyway, until he had an orgasm.

sure, everything looks bad in print.
