Roman Polanski – What's the Fuss?

Why the stink over the arrest of a convicted child rapist and fugitive from justice?

Let's see – convicted of giving a 13 year old girl drugs and alcohol, raping her, and then fleeing the country before sentencing. But don't worry, he's suffered enough, by continuing to make millions from films, rubbing elbows with the rich and famous, and generally living like a king in France.

But for some reason, people are squeamish about bringing this rapist to justice, because he's an 'artist'. Seriously, if he wasn't an 'important director', would anybody think twice about letting this guy off the hook? Where's the feminist outrage?

Kudos to the Swiss. And I applaud their lack of 'tact'. One can only hope that his appeals drag of for years, and that he has to spend them in a jail.
