I've lost my puppy! Will you help me find it? So what was that all about? Sweden finally helped the US catch Roman Polanski, a fugitive from American justice for over 30 years. They agree to keep him under house arrest in a luxurious chalet for months on end ... even allowing his family to stay there with him ... and then just let him go? Shit, somebody got paid.
Not that anybody's admitting to anything, of course. The Swiss judge presiding over the extradition case blamed the US, saying that because California prosecutors refused to share confidential sentencing information that she had no choice but to let him go. I'm sure that will be of great comfort to all the parents of vulnerable, impressionable little girls. Polanski's camp has done a good job of toning down the crimes he was accused of, making it sound like he was as much a victim as the 13-year-old girl he drugged, raped and sodomized, but the facts speak for themselves. He's a rapist and child molester, and I'm sure that wasn't the only time he did something like that.
Nevertheless, Polanski is now a free man, free to run back to France, where people apparently aren't concerned about a sexual offender living in their midst. He'll probably be having dinner with the Sarkozy's before the week's out. Pedophile piece of shit.
