    Swiss court keeps Polanski in jail, rejects bail - Yahoo! News

    And Polanski continues to stay in jail. Looks like he's coming back to the US eventually...

    or not. Now that things have settled down, the Swiss have refused to extradite him and he is free to go
    . . . from the Swiss chalet he was confined for some months

    Roman Polanksi freed after Swiss reject U.S. extradition request

    PARIS -- Swiss authorities freed French director Roman Polanski on Monday, deciding not to extradite him to Los Angeles to face sentencing for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.

    The decision, announced by the Justice Ministry in Berne, followed nearly 10 months of legal struggle between the U.S. Justice Department and Polanski's attorneys. The 76-year-old Oscar-winning filmmaker was first imprisoned and then confined to his ski chalet in the Alpine resort of Gastaad with an electronic foot bracelet.

    We should get the word out to all the would be rapists and pedophiles that Switzerland is kind of okay with rape, maybe they'll all move there.

    Funny story, had a French foreign exchange student in our class who was literally defending Polanski's actions because of his movies. She just couldn't get why that wasn't a valid excuse at all

    Sad but unsurprising.

    Its true. Its quite sickening to think anyone would think he shouldn't be arrested. Its basically saying you get a free pass on rape if you make movies people like. I saw the Ghost Writer, and I enjoyed it a lot despite its ridiculous bias. No number of movies gives someone a pass on this.

    If you think about it, if he was okay with doing that, think about all the other stuff he would be okay with doing, has done, and will continue to do.

    Those assholes give the child rapist a standing ovation at the Oscars to make a point about his "unfair" treatment, yet they also made a point to remain seated when Elia Kazan got his lifetime achievement award. Screw 'em.
    When your daughter is raped, the father (= you) decides what is what?
    What the daughter says does not matter in the least, huh?
    Chauvinism. Combined with hypocrisy.

    When the daughter says bygones is bygones it is bygones in my record.
    It was she who was raped. Not you.

    Show respect to the victim.
