Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

Okay. I have stayed out of this long enough. And now I have to put my two cents in about this whole ROMAN POLANSKI thing.

What has set me off is this “petition” by the Hollywood community to get this guy off. I am disgusted by these people.

What Roman Polanksi did was a crime. He drugged and raped…wait, let’s be specific here…he sodomized a 13 year-old girl (for fear he would get her pregnant otherwise). Knowing full well she was 13. Knowing full well what he was doing. Knowing it was wrong as evidenced by the fact that he told her afterward NOT to tell her mother about it. I mean, he even admitted in court that he KNEW she was 13.

Now there are those who would argue that the girl was already sexually active. That she even “agreed” to have sex with him. For the record, she asked him many times to stop. But in any case… IT DOESN’T MATTER!

A 42 year-old man having sex with a 13 year-old girl is WRONG. It is legally wrong and it is morally wrong. That is why there are laws against it. To protect children. And make no mistake about it, this girl was a child.

To the people who are petitioning FOR Roman Polanksi, I ask you, would you be okay with it if it was YOUR daughter? I think not. However, if you answered YES, then you are either JOHN PHILLIPS, DINA LOHAN or can be found on the MEGAN’S LAW website.

And there are those people (I won’t name names because I know them personally) who think he is being unfairly singled out. Because apparently there were other BIG NAME MOVIE STARS  (an Oscar winner in fact) AND a famous MOVIE PRODUCER (buddies of Polanski) who were participating in the same thing with young girls. But they didn’t get in trouble because they weren’t a foreigner. Okay and there’s that whole thing with WARREN BEATTY and an underage MELANIE GRIFFITH. Oh yes, and DON JOHNSON and an underage MELANIE GRIFFITH. And let’s throw CHARLIE CHAPLIN and his predilection for pre-pubsceent girls into the mix here.

To this I say, okay. They all should have been arrested too. Just because they weren’t doesn’t make what Polanski did okay. Just because they got off, doesn’t mean Polanksi should get off too!

And to those who argue that Polanksi should be released because his victim (to whom, by the way, he paid a settlement purportedly in the millions some years back which probably included an agreement that she not speak out against him) has forgiven him, to this I say… it is not her place to absolve him. He broke the law. He must face the legal system.

If there is something to complain about in all this, it is the timing of it. L.A. Prosecutors have had plenty of opportunities to nab Polanksi who frequently travelled to Switzerland. They are only doing it now in retaliation for his attorneys demanding the charges be dropped because the L.A. Prosecutors weren’t actively pursuing Polanksi. So BAM! Suddenly they have to justify their jobs and they nab him. Right in the middle of California’s worst financial crisis ever. At a time when the state is so completely strapped for cash that THOUSANDS of CRIMINALS – probably many more dangerous than him – are being released from prison early to save the state money. But now they’re going after Polanksi. And they’re going to spend a fortune in money the state doesn’t have to extradite him. If people are going to be up in arms, THAT’S what they should be complaining about.

The irony is that if Polanksi had faced the music back then instead of run like a coward (another crime he committed by the way)  he probably would have gotten off a whole lot easier. Because times have changed. In many ways, America has become more strict and puritanical. Certainly our country has become more aware of the need to protect children from predators. And that’s how Polanksi is being viewed by the general population, if not by the Hollywood community.

Again, listening to people like Whoopi Goldberg who stated on THE VIEW that what Polanksi did wasn’t  “rape-rape” makes my skin crawl. As a mother she should be ashamed of herself for saying such a thing. I guess she believes that “no” sometimes means “yes”, too.

Again, this is a case of celebrity justice. If someone can sing, dance, act, direct a movie, they are above the law. Like somehow they should be forgiven because they are stars.

On the contrary, they should be expected to set a higher standard because they have the eyes of the world upon them.

Shame on you, Roman Polanksi. You’re lucky it wasn’t my daughter. Because you’d have this MAMMAKAZE to contend with.


NOTE: Thanks to Kirstie Alley and Luc Besson who have spoken out AGAINST Polanksi.

  1. Jack Nicholson and Robert Evans did not get charged with Polanski because their girls were a bit older and starstruck; although still underage, these teenagers wanted to party with these pedophiles again! Fatty Arbuckle’s career was effectively over from his hijinks, but then he did kill his teenaged paramour (accidentally, he claimed). Don’t forget the origin of Griffith Park in L.A.; Col. Griffith had all the underage sex charges against him dropped when he donated over 4000 acres to the city. The 16 year old girl involved with Griffith and her mother had been paid off by Griffith, but the city attorney still wanted to proscecute until the land-for-sex deal was worked out. So the more things change, the more they stay the same!

  2. I totally agree, Toni. I have never seen all of Hollywood rally around a senior citizen (aside from the annual Oscar bathroom break known as the Lifetime Achievement Award) like this before. While the lesser known residents of the Motion Picture and Television Home have been kicked to the curb (literally), it’s nice to know that the ‘death panel’ has given Polanski a pass. If his last movie had been ‘The Ninth Gate’, I think things would be a little less vocal. He’s hardly one of the Hollywood ten.

  3. That is a very good point Lavoris. If Hollywood had put half as much effort supporting the Motion Picture and Television home as they did Polanski, it would still be open. Shame on all of them.

    And Bruce. I did not know about Colonel Griffith and the sordid origins of Griffith Park. But I guess it’s always been possible to buy oneself out of trouble.

  4. Think about when you were 13 ladies. Few of us wanted to see any manhood much less a 42 year old fossils junk. Its just disgusting to defend this. We must stand up for our girls and ourselves by at least condemning those who abuse them. As the parent of two girls I must say I would have been heartbroken if this happened to either of them, or my 13 year old son either.
    Thanks Mama!

  5. Exactly, jenahill! At 13 a girl’s biggest trauma should be if she’s ready to give up her Barbie collection yet! The other tragedy of this is that the courts allowed Polanksi to plead down from a rape charge to “unlawful sex with a minor”. Whatever the wording…it was rape.
