Roman Polanski arrested
Posted by: Jeremey
In 1978, director Roman Polanski fled America to escape imprisonment for having sex with a 13 year old girl. Off and on, the US has made efforts to apprehend him, but the various countries he’s been in have refused to cooperate. But leave it up to the Swiss to come through. Polanski was arrested in Switzerland yesterday when he flew into Zurich to accept a lifetime achievement award.
Polanski was the subject of a recent documentary titled Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, which shed a lot of light on the case and almost justified his actions (leaving, not having sex with a kid). Everyone has their own opinion on the guy and I’ll leave it up to you to decide if his arrest is a good or bad thing.
