Roman Polanski

The list reproduced here is really disheartening. It includes people involved in the film industry who apparently think Roman Polanski's drugging and raping of a 13 year old is merely "a case of morals". To read the wording of the petition, it's as though they think his detention in Switzerland happened because The Man disagrees politically with some art he made. Rather than the reality, which is that he drugged and raped a 13 year old and then essentially fled the country after a plea bargain.

On the other hand, I was glad to read that this list of some of those who think rape should have consequences even if you are a fancy moving picture director includes far more people who I actually know and like. In addition to giving hope that not everyone is horrible, it means it won't be terribly difficult to boycott and otherwise ignore the idiots who signed the first petition.
