The Swiss declared Roman Polanski a free man today after rejecting a U.S. request to extradite him. He is charged with a nasty rape of a 13 year old girl in the U.S. in 1977.
The Swiss blame U.S. authorities for failing to provide confidential testimony about Polanski's sentencing procedure in 1977-1978.
The U.S. tried to get their hands on him for 3 decades. He has spent most of his time in France.
I love his movie Chinatown. But that doesn't mean he should get away with such a nasty crime. Some think it should all be forgotten, though, they think it's all in the past too much now. What do you think?
