Roman "Child Rapist" Polanski reportedly paid his victim $500,000. Was this to shut Samantha Geimer up? Is this why she has asked for the charges to be dropped?
Not that what she wants matters. This isn't about her, not anymore. This is about punishment and deterrence. Show these pervert child rapists that running isn't going to protect them. Someday, they'll end up in a jail cell and become a seven-foot-tall body-builder named Mary's girlfriend.
At least the Governator got it right:
The arrest of Mr Polanski, who won an Oscar in 2002 for The Pianist, a harrowing story of Nazi-occupied Warsaw, has prompted an outcry among some politicians and Hollywood heavyweights.He seems remarkably lonesome in his views, however:
But on Friday, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said the film-maker should not get special treatment because he is a "big-time movie director".
Other Hollywood luminaries, including film producer Harvey Weinstein, have called for Mr Polanski's release.What is it with people in Hollyweird closing-ranks around their liberal friends when they get in trouble? Some asshole kills his wife, some dumbass gets arrested for being coked up in their Vegas hotel room with a dead hooker, some shit-head drugs and rapes a pre-teen; suddenly that criminal jackass is the cause-celeb of every moron who's ever been in a movie.
Now we find out Polanski paid the girl he drugged and forcibly sodomized half a million dollars to get her to drop her lawsuit. Now his buddies are calling for his sentence to be commuted because she forgave him.
Gee, wonder why?
When I was little, my mom once told me that people in Hollywood grow up never living normal lives, so their sense of reality is warped.
I suppose if Hitler had been a Hollywood director before becoming mein Fuhrer and killing 30 million people on the battlefield and 12 million more in the gas chambers, all would have been forgiven?
No wonder I'm not liking the crap coming from these douchebags lately: These people are so divorced from reality they don't know when something seems real or not.
I heard about a prison that allowed tours. The first cell visitors came to and one of the few inmates who was allowed to speak to them was a gigantic, muscle-bound man named Bubba.
Bubba would tell visitors, "You don't want to come here. Before you come here, your asshole is this big," and he'd hold his thumb and forefinger very close together. "When you come here, you become Bubba's girlfriend. After a month of being Bubba's girlfriend, your asshole is this big," and he would take both his hands and hold them in a big "O" about the size of a softball. "You don't wanna be Bubba's girlfriend."
Hey Roman, get ready to meet Bubba.
