Roman Polanski Appeals To President Barack Obama Through French President Nicolas Sarkozy
Because out of war issues, health care reform, and the recession, President Barack Obama really has time to free Roman Polanski. French President Nicolas Sarkozy hand delivered a letter from fugitive Polanski to President Obama last week in Washington.
According to the Daily Beast:
It is unclear what Polanski or President Sarkozy, for that matter, think that Obama might be able or willing to do for a man who has acknowledged giving a Quaalude and champagne to a 13-year-old girl he then sodomized.
Talk about dropping a stink bomb. The Polanski letter, which is not directly quoted in LExpress article, is said to suggest that the two months the aging director spent in a Swiss prisonin addition to the 47 days that he spent in detention in California in 1977should suffice for the crime of unlawful sexual intercourse he pled guilty to. (Polanski is now under house arrest at his chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland while authorities seek his extradition to the United States.)
Okay...so we might as well just free all of the sexual predators stuck in jail, too, then. This guy's a crock who wrongfully harmed a child...a child who's affected by his actions to this day.
