I have been invited to be a contributor to this blog and I thank Ms. Burb for the opportunity. That being said I'd like to address the extradition issue of Mr. Polanski.
He pled guilty to the charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. He then fled the country before he could be sentenced. Why should he receive any consideration from anyone to avoid being extradited back to Los Angeles County to stand for the crime?
Just because he's a famous director or artiste? Is that why?
Do you want to live in a society where the rule of law can be perverted that way? Really?
Tell me why.
Man o' Law
