Remember What Roman Polanski Did

There's a lot of hoo hah going on about film director Roman Polanski's rightful arrest in Switzerland. Here's a graphic reminder of what it is he's being arrested for. Click through but be warned there's lots of frank talk about the crime.

There's a petition that a long list of Hollywood directors have signed, urging Polanski's freedom which pretty much ignores his crimes. Did you know that's it's awful that a judge might've misbehaved through the original trial? It's true. Never mind the facts and Polanski's guilty plea. He should go free because, well, exactly why again? I keep getting bogged down in Polanski's crime: he drugged and raped a 13 year old girl.

If I boycott the work of all of those directors on that petition, it looks like I'll have fewer movies to see in the future. That's a price I just might be willing to pay.
