it says something completely different. If you're going to quote (or something like Joey's version) please use it in context.
This story is not cut and dried into a neat little package. Why are y'all so eager to hang him like it has?
Sorry, but it looks to me like you are saying that your first scenario is more applicable than your second scenario in your opinion and you are sceptical about how it's been warped to indicate the second. I'm not convinced that your first scenario is what happened. I think she was drugged, boozed, and raped and it doesn't matter whether she lied or not. I can't find someone particularly responsible for what they say when they have been drugged or boozed.
It seems cut and dried to me. Either Polanski did it or he didn't. Either he ran or he didn't. If he was coerced into admitting he did it seems to be irrelevant considering the evidence against him. He should own up to it, serve his time, and whoever coerced him (if so) should be dealt with according to the law.
"So then what you're saying is that those who DON'T want Polanski to go free have been drugged and sodomized, and are happy that they were, and furthermore have a 13 year old child who was, and also have made millions from the movie."
This below the belt, put words in my mouth attempt is too despicable even for someone like you, TenPenny.
Right! He ran ... and he should face the music for the flight as well as whatever sentence the Judge deemed proper. He's already plead guilty to having sex with a minor.
