The Polanski case is particularly interesting. Polanski himself admitted raping an underage girl before fleeing the US to self-imposed exile in Europe. Since then, endless Hollywood stars have championed him as a Director and many have worked for him quite happily as he's been able to continue making movies in France and beyond, despite several unsuccessful attempts to have him extradited to the US to face trial. I dunno what this says about the f*cked-up value systems of those involved. One rule for some..? The man admits he raped a child, but he's somehow beyond the reach of justice for the victim (although she apparently doesn't want to see him jailed - see quote below), despite living and working openly in France - even being lauded by the film industry on several occasions.

In 1977, after a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Polanski was arrested for the rape of 13-year-old Samantha Geimer and pleaded guilty to the charge of unlawful sex with a minor.[9] He was released from prison after serving 42 days and was told he would be put on probation. When he learned that the judge planned to renege on that promise, he fled to Paris before sentencing. He publicly offered his apology to Geimer telling her he regretted the episode.[10][11] In September 2009, he was arrested by Swiss police and later released after they denied a U.S. request for his extradition.[12][13] In October 2015, after another request for extradition, a judge in Poland refused the request.[14] Geimer supported the Polish decision, adding, "He said he did it, he pled guilty, he went to jail. I don't know what people want from him."[15]

Polanski continued to make films such as The Pianist (2002), a WWII true story drama about Jewish-Polish musician Władysław Szpilman. The film won three Academy Awards including Best Director, along with numerous international awards. He also directed other films, including Oliver Twist (2005), a story which parallels his own life as a "young boy attempting to triumph over adversity".[2] In 2009 he received a lifetime-achievement award from the Zurich Film Festival,[16] and in 2011 won Best Director at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival for Carnage. He was awarded Best Director for The Ghost Writer (2010) at the 23rd European Film Awards that year but was unable to receive it in person due to his retention by the Swiss authorities.[17]

I dunno. Maybe it's just the rank hypocrisy of the Hollywood elites that rankles. It could be argued that Polanski has paid the price for his crime - he can never go back to the US (he will undoubtedly be arrested the moment he gets off the plane, should he ever try) and there are doubtless quite a few other countries possibly prepared to arrest him for extradition, too.

I dunno if that really counts as paying for his crimes... I could quite easily never go back to the US again and wouldn't consider myself to be 'punished'. :lol: ;)

I do agree with you, though - I think the whole showbiz industry is so hypocritical it hurts. I mean, 13 years old. It's not even strawberry floating borderline, is it?

Polanski should be extradited, tried, and imprisoned.

Really? You Think? And it doesn't occur to you that expressing interest in what is clearly a mad-as-a-bag-of-kittens-tin-foil-hat-wearing kiddie fiddling conspiracy theory might also be construed as 'a bit of Cal thing to do'? Or do different rules apply when the belief is in a secret, shadowy illuminati-style child porn ring at the highest echelons of British society, media and government, as opposed to - oh, I dunno - say questioning whether the IPCC might just have got a few of their sums wrong on global warming? Which of these two propositions strikes you as the more nutty?

You lot. :fp:


I don't know why I was going back through this thread, but that really is the most magnificent post. Bravo!

Not even borderline really in the UK. Unless you're her teacher or doctor or something.

The veteran DJ said the report included an accusation he was among celebrities who "seduced" a 15-year-old girl.

Mr Blackburn, 73, denies the allegation and says he was cleared of wrongdoing.

In an earlier statement, Mr Blackburn said the allegation made in 1971 was quickly withdrawn. The girl at the centre of the allegation took her own life later that year.


Im not going to comment.

Well, the last sentence in the quote is really disturbing.

And the main BBC news headline about this Saville/BBC thing is so painfully obvious it hurts.

I am actually starting to resent the fact we have to pay the BBC some money every year and we get this strawberry floatin' whitewashed of a report that is suppressed as much as possible on their channels. :x

I don't think the BBC are suppressing it (Newsnight was all over it last night, for instance); they simply feel once they've 'done the duty', given the press conference, issued the meaningless platitudes about 'lessons learned' and so on, they can move breezily on. Nothing to see here, move along.

For me, that's the kind of media elitism that rankles - and the BBC are paragons of the patronising, belligerent sneer, even as they are busy demanding money with menaces and threatening to criminalise anyone who doesn't pay up.

They talk about it but they don't delve into the nitty gritty side of it. They are glossing it over. It's rather sickening that no one is really held culpable for allowing this to happen.

I don't know, I was too young to properly know of him (although apparently not too young for him at the time...) but I suppose if you felt a strong connection with him through his shows it's not that stupid to pass by and check out his coffin and pay your respects. Before you knew of his sordid lifestyle, of course.
