Roman Polanski's Finally Under Arrest, The French Are Appalled (News Flash: HE RAPED A 13-YEAR-OLD Girl)
Oh, the French. Are we surprised that you're up in arms about Roman Polanski finally being arrested for a 13-year-old girl's rape? Nah, we're not. Just like we're not surprised about 80% of the crap you've pulled in history. Raping a kid (ah hem up the butt, too) 33 years ago doesn't deserve any kind of punishment, right?
According to Geimer, Polanski asked Geimer's mother if he could photograph the girl for the French edition of Vogue, which Polanski had been invited to guest-edit. Her mother allowed a private photo shoot. According to Geimer in a 2003 interview, "Everything was going fine; then he asked me to change, well, in front of him." She added, "It didn't feel right, and I didn't want to go back to the second shoot."
Geimer later agreed to a second session, which took place on March 10, 1977 at the Mulholland area home of actor Jack Nicholson in Los Angeles. "We did photos with me drinking champagne," Geimer says. "Toward the end it got a little scary, and I realized he had other intentions and I knew I was not where I should be. I just didn't quite know how to get myself out of there." She recalled in a 2003 interview that she began to feel uncomfortable after he asked her to lie down on a bed, and how she attempted to resist. "I said, No, no. I dont want to go in there. No, I dont want to do this. No!", and then I didnt know what else to do, she stated.
Geimer testified that Polanski performed various sexual acts (Ed. Note: he did her up the butt) on her after giving her a combination of champagne and quaaludes. (source)
As for the French, the LA Times is reporting:
"French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner told France-Inter radio that he and Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski asked Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that Polanski be released on bail, calling his arrest a "bit sinister."
French Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand was quoted in French media as saying, "In the same way that there is a generous America that we like, there is also a scary America that has just shown its face."
This whole thing is sick and hopefully he gets what he deserves. Which you all know he will if he gets sentenced to jail time...don't drop the soap!
