Welcome to another instalment of this irregular series of posts about that other side of humanity.
Suppose you’re famous.
& on a certain beautiful day in March you make a little mistake.
Like any & all mistakes, you don’t mean for it to happen but happen it does.
Now, seeing as you’re famous this might mean serious career trouble for you but thankfully it doesn’t come that.
& since this all happened way back in 1977, it’s in the past & you try to live your life as best as you can.
That is until someone comes up & dares to confront you with this tiny mistake you made so many many years ago.
Would you like it if people kept bothering you about something you did over 30 years ago ?
I think not.
Why, you’d probably get upset & start to feel bad.
Guess how Roman Polanski feels ?
He drugged & raped a 13 year old girl & later fled the USA to avoid being sentenced & people still haven’t let him off the hook for it.
After years of basically being on the run from the law, he was finally arrested in September of 2009
& got sent home to his luxurious Swiss Alps chalet & was later put under house arrest.
The psychological scars of this decades long ordeal must’ve really bothered him as he finally broke his months of silence & said that…
…the US only wants to bring him in for the sake of publicity 😯
“I can no longer remain silent because the United States continues to demand my extradition more to serve me on a platter to the media of the world than to pronounce a judgment concerning which an agreement was reached 33 years ago.”
Well, I guess it’s nice to know all these events have not diminished his sense of imagination… or increased his sense of culpability.
& just in case you think I made it all up, here’s the odd link o’ truth.
