Drudge reports the Swiss are holding Roman Polaski for extradition to the United States. If memory serves, Polaski drugged and assaulted a 13-year old girl in Jack Nicholson's hot tub. I wonder if Polaski's apologists will try a variation of the Ted Kennedy/Mary Jo Kopechne excuse--that the victim would agree the culprit's accomplishments were worth it.

If Polaski were a member of the clergy, Hollywood would be screaming at the top of their lungs for his extradition.

Talk about double standard...

The apologists seem to more be arguing 'After all it's not as though he'd stabbed and killed Federico Fellini 30-odd years ago, then fled justice. This was only a 13-year-old girl. Priorities.'

At most, I go see a movie in the theater once a year. Now I suspect that frequency will drop.
