getting away with rape

i’ve read about roman polanski when the film he directed, the pianist, was released in 2002.

much was said about the film, the actor and mr polanski, the director.

he was convicted of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor (13 years old) in 1977. he fled to france to escape the charges and is currently under arrest in switzerland.

it’s interesting how the rich and famous can get away with rape.

chance upon a debate on the new yorks times on this issue.

it’s hard to imagine that there are double standards for something as serious as rape. does being an artist makes your crime more forgivable?

strange world we live in.
