A bitch is still illish, but on the re-bound.
Lawd, this bubonic-ebola plague is a whopper!
Anyhoo, I’m playing catch up so…
On the Polanski arrest…
Roman Polanski is a brilliant director.
Roman Polanski is a philanthropist and a mentor and blah, blah and blah.
Roman Polanski is a fugitive from American justice, people.
He’s not the Dalai Lama,…he’s just a human being who fled the United States of America because he found out that our judicial system was about to take another bite out of his ass over his confessed rape of a 13 year old girl (and can we PUHlease cease with the “rape” vs. “real rape” bullshit…must we go there? I think NOT!).
Everything he has done…every donation he has made…every humanitarian action he has indulged in since he fled this country has been on justice’s dime.
Shit, this system will go straight to hell if rich people can just flee…do charity work and then get a pass.
It’s not as if Polanski was facing the death penalty…or life. He would have been done and out…if he had not fled.
If Roman Polanski was getting fucked over by the legal system…and he very may have been…then he’s in good company. Thousands of Americans share that experience…right up to the point where they went to jail and he went to France.
Now, this bitch has about had enough of listening to celebrities speaking out over the miscarriage of justice handed to the then 44 year old Polanski for his having raped a 13-year-old girl.
If there has been a delay…if this has “dragged on”…if it feels as if this case has no end then one need only look to Mr. Polanski for the cause of that shit.
And, in the name of all those who are currently wrapped up in the American prison system, Mr. Polanski ain’t the poster child for justice denied.
He’s more an example of how the privileged get over…
...while the poor get jail.
