Where to start?
With these beauts, maybe: Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese have signed a petition that has “demanded the immediate release” of Roman Polanski, who was arrested in Switzerland on a U.S. arrest warrant related to a 1977 child sex charge.
138 people in the film industry signed the petition against the arrest.
A petition against the arrest? The guy had sex with 13 year old girl!
He DRUGGED and RAPED a 13 year old girl!
“It seems inadmissible to them that an international cultural event, paying homage to one of the greatest contemporary filmmakers, is used by the police to apprehend him,” said the petition, backed by France’s Societe des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques (Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers).
Inadmissible? The apprehending of a Pedophile rapist?
BUT. Here’s one of the signatories, with his wife, a few years ago.
The signatories also included actresses Monica Bellucci and Tilda Swinton and directors David Lynch, Jonathan Demme, John Landis, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Wim Wenders.
In the United States, powerhouse movie producer Harvey Weinstein is trying to recruit more supporters for Polanksi.
Polanski was accused of giving the girl champagne and Quaaludes then performing sex acts, including intercourse, with her during a photo shoot at actor Jack Nicholson’s house.
Uncle Jack was not at home.
So, its more heinous to arrest a pedophile on neutral territory, or when he wasn’t quite ready for it, or on his way to a gathering of his fans than it is to rape a child?
