American Justice: Michael Vick 2 years for Animal Abuse, Plaxico Burress 20 months for Illegal Weapons, Roman Polanski, Academy Award for Child Rape

Film director Roman Polanski raped a 13 year old girl over 30 years ago. He fled the country and has not lived like a nomadic fugitive, but as a celebrated directer. Over the weekend he was finally arrested in Zurich, Switzerland. Now authorities are debating whether or not he will be brought back to the United States to answer for his misdeeds. The girl that he raped is now in her mid forties and she says she has forgiven him, but is this enough.  He will probably fight extradition, but where is the justice in this situation. Polanski is an old man now, but he has been allowed to pursue his craft as if the crime never happened. He should be brought back to the United States and he should serve time for his crime. This is a country that jailed Michael Vick for his despicable cruelty to animals, Plaxico Burress was sent to prison for an illegal weapons charge. Polanski’s crime was even more heinous. He stole the innocence of a child and even though the child is now an adult it does not lessens the crime. Bring him back and let him experience some American Justice.

    Polanski has been on the lam for so long he most likely thought he was invincible. There are rumors his lawyer set this up to “force the issue” and get his name cleared so he can travel freely in the US without this cloud hanging over his head. I hope he gets extradited and goes to jail, if for no other reason than to show that right and wrong still matter, even after 30 years.
