Polanski: Pardonnez-moi ma perversion

With a non-existent federal clemency program, the big question for the Obama administration  is: What form will such a program take, should it ever happen to emerge? The Daily Beast offers us some insight as to one possibility - the return of the Bill Clinton model.

It is reported that French President Nicolas Sarkozy "in an astonishing act of back-room international diplomacy" has "hand-delivered a letter to President Obama from fugitive film director Roman Polanski." It is also reported that Polanski has made a private plea for clemency. Polanski was charged, in 1977, with giving a Quaalude and champagne to a 13-year-old girl he then sexually assaulted.

I believe that he should be forced to come back to the states and be sentenced and have more crimes added to him for fleeing the states for proseution. He was in the wrong and ran like a corward.. As matter of fact I dont care who he is, it makes hime no diffearnt then the rest of people that faced thier crime and did thier time..I could go on all day about this one but will let it for now...
