California rejects Roman Polanski appeal

A California court rejected Roman Polanski’s latest appeal, which requested that his case be viewed by a special counsel or he be sentenced in absentia. The director has been living under house arrest in Switzerland, after being arrested last September for unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old model back in 1977. The Associated Press reports that the Swiss Justice Ministry had been waiting for the California decision before ruling if and when Polanski would be extradited back to the United States to face sentencing. U.S. prosecutors say the French-born Oscar-winner could spend up to two years in prison.

    Finally! He’s a child molester. He may be an Oscar winning child molester, but he’s still a child molester.

    He’s a child rapist who hopefully will finally pay for his crime. He’s gotten away with it for far too many years.

    A double standard exists in how sexual assault cases are decided at the County of Los Angeles Santa Monica Courthouse, California,.

    Roman Polanski was not treated straightforwardly by the Judge at the County of Los Angeles Santa Monica Courthouse, California in 1977, which is why this case has lingered on for 33 years.

    Roman Polanski wanted to make good in 1977 since he would not have returned to America, and served time at Chino California, if this were untrue.

    A double standard is in operation at the Santa Monica Courthouse, which double standard hinges on whether the perpetrator works for California Government and its subdivisions.

    If that criteria is met then the Santa Monica Court and other County of Los Angeles employees will act in concert in the local Government’s favor to cover up their employees’ on the job sexual molestation crimes.

    But if the perpetrator or victim are not working for the California state and its subdivisions, and were born in another country, then the Santa Monica Court and other employees will act against them, using any means and foul means.

    In addition as Polanski admitted to a crime by plea bargain, the Santa Monica Judge should have honored it.

    When the Santa Monica Judge wanted to force Polanski into deportation, using illegal coercion in the sentencing, the Judge broke the plea bargain agreement, and abused his official power, and used bait and switch justice, which betrayed the righteous legal process, destroyed Roman Polanski’s trust in it, and caused Roman Polanski to flee.

    California Officials are not policing their own California institutional sexual offenders who work for the State and its subdivisions, but instead will act to cover up, and physically harm and re-victimize the victim instead.

    In view of the double standard it would be in the interests of justice to free Roman Polanski, a Polish & French artist as soon as possible. I believe it is a good time for a pardon for Roman Polanski, in view of the judicial, prosecutorial misconduct and the double standard that is firmly entrenched in California,

    and it is also a good time for California Justice to attend to its own ills.
