Have any of you ever noticed that the wealthy or famous get treated differently at restaurants, stores, amusement parks and yes, within the criminal justice system? (And did you know that if you are a celebrity and like Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and other famous brands you can get 30% and more off the retail price, or even free as “swag” at festivals and media events?) All because they are rich and or famous. Seems odd, does it not, to think those with the most advantages get the biggest breaks.
Famed, acclaimed and notorious director Roman Polanski was born August 18, 1933 in Paris and grew up in Poland, the son of a Polish Jew and a Russian immigrant. …His first Hollywood hit was Rosemary’s Baby. His pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, was killed by the Manson Family. He won an Academy Award. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Polanski pleaded guilty in 1977 to a single count of unlawful sex with a minor, she was thirteen. He admitted to having given Champagne and a Qualude to a 13-year-old little girl he’d taken to his pal Jack Nicholson’s (who starred in his film Chinatown) house for a photo shoot. It was during that photo shoot that it is alleged that things got a little let’s say “sick” with the 13 year old. Put this on and take that off and that off and that off and then having sex with her, the 13 year old. Putting up a bond after his plea, Polanski fled the country before he was sentenced. The arrest warrant against him was issued in 1978….FOR HAVING SEX WITH A 13 YEAR OLD! Now, after 30 years as a free “fugitive” living the very good life in France (always more tolerant of pervs, especially “artistic” ones), the law has finally caught up with him.
… “It’s ancient,” Finkle said, once again we see the Hollywood attitude of “what is the big deal?” Doing what he is accused of with a 13 YEAR OLD GIRL.
The big question is this folks, there are people doing hard time for being found guilty of doing a fraction of what this creep did and he should walk? What kind of message does that send? Have enough money, and you can run and keep out of reach of the jurisdiction of where you committed the crime and hope everyone forgets? He is a fugitive from justice just like all the criminals we see on America’s Most Wanted, it does not get any simpler than that.
….She was only 13 years old…the curtain is closing…it is now time to pay the fiddler!

While there browse through some of his other articles, you will not be disappointed in his thoughts but more intrigued as many of us have found with his unique, hold no punches, writing style. I predict at some point a book on Mr. Nazarian’s “Essays” could come knocking and we all will be able to say we began to follow his “Essays” in 2008 during the Anthony Pellicano trial.
