Roman Polanski’s arrest not outrageous but long overdue

roman-polanski-1977--121636799050739400via Edge of the American West.  I agree — Anne Applebaum’s defense of Polanski because he’s old and has had rough life are nearly as creepy as the original crime itself. Historiann has an exceptional commentary on this story as well.

For more ickiness, see the recent documentary about the case, and the victim’s testimony here.

Where was this outpouring of sympathy for Mary Kay Latourneau? Oh yeah, she’s not a French cultural treasure.

Added later:  got in an argument with my sister who thinks that California is wasting too much money going after Polanski.   Needless to say I don’t agree, but then again, I live in the Nutmeg state.
