    The mother or father should be jailed also. What good parent would let a 13 year old girl go for a photo shoot with anyone is beyond belief. Same as whacko why did their parents permit it also.

    The guy should be locked up, plain and simple. There is no 2 ways about it. I don't get this whole 'poor Polanski' nonsense that the media is full of at the moment!

    It seems incredible that so many hi-vis. people are defending him when he apparently admitted the crime. Well done the Swiss for having the bottle to arrest him.

    Well I have to say I'm glad that the majority agree with me because quite frankly I could not believe the tripe I was hearing from the so called celebs defending him.....

    It is thought is that swiss only arrested him to be in favour with the USA.

    I cant understand how he has managed to go on for so long without being put under arrest.

    He's admitted his guilt, now it's time for him to face the consequences. I hope the Swiss don't lose their nerve and let him go. The people defending him should be ashamed of themselves. Imagine if it were their 13 year old daughter he had raped.

    At the end of the day it's all about those parents selling their children into prostitution, ok the people like polanski and whacko are guilty but I would still go after the parents. Maybe they were overcome by greed or being famous but they are just as guilty, the parents I mean. I am not defending the likes of polanski or whacko but you have to question the parents motives.

    They need to get on with it though as the poor victim has repeatedly asked for it to be dropped as every time there's a sniff it's dragged back up which is more upsetting for her and her family.

    100% with Mattx too ... Get him back to the States. He did a runner and should be penalised for that first .. then deal with the paedophilia bits too!
    Well deserved Rep for speaking out.

    There have been strong shows of support from the film industry. France and Poland have urged Switzerland to free him on bail and pressed US officials all the way up to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the case.
    Polanski vows to fight extradition to the US - Yahoo! News UK

    Yeah, because the last time he was on bail he didn't do a runner at all! What the frak is wrong with people trying to justify his crime? It was 30 years ago so he's "done his dues"? What?
    It doesn't matter if the victim no longer cares. To not continue would send a message to every paedophile on the planet that if you hide long enough you can get away with it.

    and yes, it's the parents fault as much as anything. What kind of idiot agrees to have their child have a "private photoshoot" with just one middle aged bloke present?

    I'm not sure we can say Whacko was guilty of anything worse than niavety or stupidity or both. Unlike Polanski, he never admitted (boasted?) about his crimes.

    I know what you're saying but some compassion needs to be shown to the victim so they need to get it right this time. It must be very upsetting for her and her family for this to be dragged up repeatedly so they need to make this the last time.
    Ironically he'll probably be more heavily punished for skipping bail in the U.S that he would of been for having sex with a minor.
