41. I'm not a Polanski apologist, either, but

He WENT to jail. He did the time he was sentenced to do.

It long ago came out that Polanski was the victim of a vainglorious judge who went back on his ruling and decided to make an example of Polanski -- a decision that was frowned upon by the assistant district attorney, who felt the judge was overstepping his bounds and has said as much.

I get so tired of hearing that Polanski needs to do his sentence. He DID it. He simply ran AFTER HE WAS RELEASED FROM JAIL, when he heard that the judge had changed his mind and was planning to sentence him to life.

I abhor the crime, but I also value the criminal justice system, which has enough problems without a judge abusing it.
