You Commit This Crime You Do The Time

I have no special insight regarding the arrest of film director Roman Polanski in Switzerland on a 30-year-old charge that he drugged a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles and then had sex with her.

Perhaps except this: If Polanski was trailer trash from
L.A. and had done the same thing he would not be treated with such deference by so many media mavens.

In my view, crimes against defenseless minors are among the most reprehensible. Drugging and forcing yourself on a child barely in her teens is an act of depravity that rightly should have no statute of limitations.

I don't care if the victim has since said she forgives Polanski. And spare me the false equivalency poop like defending child rape because torture is so much worse.
