French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner called the detention of the film-maker - a French citizen - in Switzerland a "bit sinister".
So, arresting this pervert who drugged, raped and sodomized a thirteen year old girl is "sinister?"
Mr. Kouchner, you've won the "Douchebag of the Day" award. Congratulations!
And I don't buy the, "He's been punished enough," crap or the "he can't travel for fear of being arrested" garbage. His travel should be limited to an 8x10 cell with a seven-foot-tall, 300 pound body builder nicknamed "Mary" for a cell-mate.
Is it just me, or does it seem that when somebody in Hollywood commits a crime, all their buddy-buddies in the entertainment world come to their defense, no matter how heinous and disgusting it might have been?
The Swiss Directors Association also criticised the arrest, describing it as "not only a grotesque farce of justice, but also an immense cultural scandal".Oh, it's a cultural scandal? I'm so sorry! I didn't realize that enforcing the law and asking criminals to serve their sentences was a cultural issue! I beg your pardon.
Polanski is clearly just a Jean Valjean character! So what if he's a rapist? The people defending him are probably just fine with having Polanski alone with their pre-teen children.
Yeah, probably about as comfortable as I am with Bernie Madoff handling my investments.
