I haven't posted much at all this week. One of my very good friends is dying of cancer and it has really bummed me out. Also hearing news about Roman Polanski has made me truly sick and very fearful for our society. I have just wanted to scream about all this, and the best way I know is to utilize my blogging forum and my right to free speech to do it.
Here goes... if any of you have any doubts to Mr. Polanski's guilt or are in a mind to defend him in anyway please take the time and read the actual March 11, 1977 Grand Jury testimony in regards to this case. I warn you it is not for the faint at heart.

I have heard arguments this week that it wasn't really "Rape, Rape" and/or he suffered as child and his wife and unborn child were murdered, he's just a little crazy. Are you really going to tell me this is justification for drugging, raping and sodomizing a 13 year old girl? I don't think so!!! There is no justification for these horrific crimes. And if our society will actually defend this man because he is a so called "artistic genius", then we are no different than the ancient Athenians or Romans and we are truly on our way to hell in a hand basket.
For the record I will not be a bystander and say nothing, I am saying this as loud and to as many people as I can; Roman Polanski drugged, raped and sodomized a 13 year old girl. He is a pedophile. He needs to be extradited from Switzerland, brought to the United States publicly stand trial and serve out his sentence in prison along with all the other convicted sodomizers and pedophiles.
as the English Philosopher Edward Burke said: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
I know there are so many others that feel the same way, please make your voice heard!
