I for one am sooo glad Whoopie, holder of Juris Doctorate (from Harvard Law on-line crash course), cleared that up.

My favorite part of the article:

"Got that? Roman Polanski had been punished enough, declared Roman Polanski. After all, when a guy has endured both Auschwitz and the Manson Family, doesn’t he deserve a little rape-that’s-not-rape-rape?"

Anybody else get the feeling that guy is one of the biggest snivelers in history? What a lucky guy, he can ride the excuse of his wife's murder for ever!! But it wasn't really murder, it was murder-murder. See how easy that is ~

The Roman Polanski case (and the numerous celebrities and directors who have come to his defense) is a classic example of just how warped the perception of justice is among the Hollywood crowd.

What's worse is living here (in LA) and having to interact with these people who think that crimes don't matter when they are commited by the wealthy, the talented, or the beautiful people. The fact that people like Woody Allen, Martin Scorcese(sp?), Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Debra Winger, Johnathan Demme, Diane Von Furstenburg, etc. have all jumped on the "Free Polanski" bandwagon is not surprising.

These people are NOT like us. They make it a point to let us know that they are not like us. These people do not have to live by the "average" rules of society. Laws are for the common man, the untalented. If a 44 year old man desires a 13 year old girl sexually, he is entitled to take what he wants from her because he is talented after all.

If these people have so much influence then why wasn't an agreement reached years ago?

He needs to do his time - period. Kathleen Soliah, aka Sarah Jane Olson, aka the Symbionese Liberation Army's "Soccer mom" didn't get a "get out of jail free" card handed to her either.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time! Sing it Sammy!

That's the point...they have an inflated sense of self. They really believe that because they have produced "works of art ?" that their opinions hold some weight and the unimportant, untalented people should listen to their more "enlightened", more "sophisticated" take on the matter.
