There's a difference between that scenario and a full and free confession.

And not to gloss over the facts, after admitting what he did he fled and became a fugitive.

Now with that context, justice should be served and that's all that the people want.

No more excuses or special treatment due to social status.

However, proportionately speaking conservatives have have been right on this issue and the left have been uncomfortable in addressing this issue as much as the conservatives, as a whole- which is the point. .

Good Lord, drop it already. This is not a left vs. right issue.

Roman Polanski's crime doesn't cancel out his art - and vice versa - Telegraph

I think maybe it is a left/right issue to an extent.

When was the last time a liberal was heard to defend Lynyrd Sknyrd?

When was the last time a liberal was heard to use the 'artistic expression, man' defense in absolving them of charges of hagiographing a racist past with their song 'Sweet Home Alabama'?

I don't think this says anything about left or right. It tells you something about artists and the like perhaps, but nothing about the general left/right leaning public. Which I am going to predict is by and large solidly in favour of extraditing Polanski.

So, this big, conspirative left didn't condemn what he did while the big, conspirative right obviously is appalled and in disgust. Sure enough.

What is there to understand? I thought it was an obvious joke, if not then it's even more laughable that you would try and make such a stretch.

Never said that but only pointed out the tepid response of many more on the Left vs then those on the Right.

you really need to start seeing individuals for who they are, not how they vote.

I can make my own observations and draw my own conclusions like all reasonable people.

Wait, do I need to burn my Lynyrd Skynyrd mp3s now!?
