First, Dance Of The Vampires is one of my favorite movies which I watch every winter.

Second, can't we just put Polanski and Manson in a Saw type situation, film it, give the proceeds to all the victims, and let the survivor walk. That way at least one of these assholes gets tortured/executed making the conservative in me happy.

Well after that drivel, we're glad you reached the proper conclusion.

Said in jest, for the defenders and sympathizers of Polanski here.

Often child rapists and predators take photos of their victims, and sickly claim the photos are "art". And it wouldn't be too far of a logical leap for some Polanski sympathizers to claim the same.

According to Geimer's testimony, Polanski first met Geimer at her home Feb. 13, 1977. Geimer said the director asked her mother if he could photograph her for French Vogue. She said her mother agreed to a private photo shoot, which Geimer told ABC's "Good Morning America" in 2003 that she believed would help further her acting career.


The director returned nearly a week later to take Geimer for the photo shoot about a block from her home. Geimer said that at the top of a hill, Polanski asked her to change shirts, which she did in front of him.

Then, she said, he asked her to pose topless, which she also did, though she said she felt uncomfortable.
Something tells me Bono will never come out while singing Bad and say "Bad, Roman I don't think you're bad"..

Who here is defending Polanski's actions?

To apologize, palliate for or rationalize his actions is an indirect way of defending him.

No one here has apologized for his actions. A few have attempted to provide some context, but absolutely no one here has said that what he did was ok and that he shouldn't be held accountable for his actions.

I wasn't arguing that point.

Maybe we're not reading the same thread or understand the meaning of the word apologize differently:


Quote:
To make excuse for or regretful acknowledgment of a fault or offense.
Apology means more than being sorrowful, there are multiple meanings of the word.

I can definitely see how one poster's "context" came across in the way that diamond is suggesting.

But the bit about the pictures and "art" was unnecessary and added nothing to the conversation other than a chance to get in a jab.

Not necessarily, try this scenario:

If Polanski had been interrupted and been caught with new nude photographs of the victim only and never raped her, because he was interrupted, I do believe some here would claim the photos would be "art" only.

What's sad is the Angelica Hutson could have stopped it all when he was in the middle of a raping her. She being a girl friend of Polanski's arrived at Jack Nicholson's house and was shooed away by Polanski. Polanski went on to raping her more.

So not only is Polanski a rapist and wanted felon he is also a child pornographer.

And, child pornography is not art.

I don't think the pictures are either here or there. They're not what he was convicted of, and an aside to the fact that he raped her, so I don't see the point of getting into a circular debate about them.

I'd love to hear you explain why you would think some people here would be ok with a 43 year old man taking nude pictures of a 13 year old girl who he'd previously plied up with champagne.

Because on face value that certainly seems like nothing more than an unjustifiable and over-the-top insult.

Right, but diamond certainly wasn't just honing in on one person with his ridiculous "defending Polanski" statement.

The photographs show the path and intent of Polanski, a predatory pedophile-rapist is all.
