Its been over 30 years and he never went to jail, should he go to jail now?

Damn, I should have stayed home!!!!

Damn, I should have stayed home!!!!

Roman Polanski, an Academy award winning director was arrested in Switzerland with a 31 year old warrant.  The warrant was issued by U.S. authorities in 1978 for drugging and rapping a 13-yr old girl.

The victim’s name is Samantha Geimer.  She was at a photo shoot for Jack Nicholson when the incident occurred.  At the photo shoot, Polanski gave the then 13 year old Geimer champagne and a shaving of a Quaalude tablet. (Quaalude is  another name for Methaqualone which is a sedative drug used in the 60’s and 70’s as a hypnotic or  treatment for insomnia.)  He then performed sexual acts with the minor.

According to CNN.com prosecutors have been arguing that  it would be a slap in the face of justice to let a man who rapped and drugged a minor remain free.

I fully agree.  There should be some type of consequence for his crimes. Roman Polanski wasn’t charged with a mis-demeanor,  he was charged with a serious crime, which he plead guilty to.  Over the years there has been repeated attempts to settle the case, but Roman, refused to return to the United States.

According to court documents the prosecutor, Polanski and his attorney might have worked out a deal that would have spared Roman from doing jail time.  The deal also would have let the minor avoid a public trail.

The judge had other ideas. (The original judge is now dead)  Instead the judge decided to  send Polanski to a Maximum-Security prison for 42 days  for psychological testing and evaluation.  Then on the day before the sentencing the judge told Polanski’s attorney he was going to send Roman back for another 48 days.  As we know Roman never went back, he left the United States instead.

Samantha Geimer (victim) filed court documents in January of this year, requesting that the case be tossed out.  Mrs. Geimer did sue Roman  and receive an undisclosed settlement.  She said “I’m not 13 years old anymore, and have dealt with the difficulties of being a victim.”

Samantha further stated that “Every time this case is brought to the attention of the court, great focus is made of me, my family, my mother and others.  That attention is not pleasant to experience….” Read original story @ Cnn.com

So my question to you is this?  If Roman is extradited back to the United States, should he have to do his time?

FYI*****For those of you who think that a warrant has an expiration date, your wrong.  Thats just a myth!

I don’t think Mr. Polanski should be exempt from the law.  He should be held responsible for his actions.  The crime was committed in America and he should receive punishment for it.    What type of punishment is another issue.

If I had to decide his punishment, I would consider his age.  But that would be it as far as being lenient.  Roman had a responsibility and didn’t own up to it.  Roman’s age doesn’t give him a “get out of jail” free card.  Anybody else would have to answer to their crimes as should Roman.

Understandably, Samantha wants the case tossed out.  No one wants to be under the scrutiny of the media or public eye.  On a larger scale, the case should be made public again to remind people, and other offenders, that you can’t run away from the law, and causing injury or risk to minors will not be tolerated.

There is no point in giving Mr. Polanski life, but he should be held accountable.  Not only for breaking the law, but also deliberately fleeing the law.get out of jail card

Russell Simmons Blasts-off on Blog

"My kids are off limits" Russell Simmoms

"My kids are off limits" Russell Simmoms

RESPECT THE KIDS!!!!!!!

Russell Simmons, a name known worldwide recently BLASTED off on his blog.  His blog is at Global Grind. A site that I subscribe to, and have so for sometime.  —–SideBar—— If your into the Music scene, especially Hip Hop, join this site if you haven’t already.  Confrim what you heard there.  Believe me!!!! Shout out to Mr.Simmons and the Global Grind staff.  Awesome Website!!!!!

As i was saying. 🙂

Mr. Simmons put  the NY Post on Blast.  And good to, because it was about time someone did. On 9/16 Raakhee Mirchandani of the New York post wrote an article that was suppose to be about Baby Phat.

—SIDEBAR FOR REAL….. At first i was just going to comment on the statement about Mr. Simmons…. But after reading the article, Im putting the whole damn thing on blast…..

CONTINUE…..

So this Raa. Mirchandani ends his article about “Clothing” with this: “her three babies and her daughter’s rushing to kiss Simmons’ baby daddy (baby daddy, are you kidding me)  Djimon Hounsou first, even before real daddy Russell Simmons. Ouch.”  See original article

WTF

I don’t blame Mr. Simmons for “slightly” speaking his mind. (Truthly, the blog was surger coated and polite) There was no reason what so ever for Mr. Raa Whateva to add this comment to his article.  Who is he to make any type of assumption about the actions of children he doesn’t know.  “Ouch” What’s the ouch about.  What type of life does he live that he would pull some crap like that out his a**.

You don’t mess with peoples kids.  Thats a common known fact.  Even in the animal kingdom. Shoot, you should have to know that to get a visa.  Not a joke!!!!!

In Mr. Simmons’ blog he also says “Dijimon is a great father and step-father for my kids.  And I try to be a good father that’s the reality.  The NY Post tried to take an arrow to my heart and hit me where any father would feel the most pain”…….See original article @ GlobalGrind

Just me and my baby girls :)

Just me and my baby girls 🙂

Now back to  Mr. Raa.

KANYE WEST’S GIRLFRIEND’S NAME IS AMBER ROSE.  Not Semi-bald girlfriend.   Where did you learn to speak, or manners for that matter.  Did you read “how to be polite for dummies”, you have a problem with Nouns?

So what Amber didn’t want to pose for any photos (According to Mr. Raa)  So What!  Get over it!

As much as I want to go Vivica Fox on you, I won’t.  Just out of respect for Mr. Simmons. He is a man of peace.

So, I’m going to breath easy.

You go Baby Phat!!!!!

Yes, I know i was wrong and I’m sorry

Damn, I F***ed up this time for real

Damn, I F***ed up this time for real

Like so many others I watched the VMAs on Sunday.  And yes my mouth dropped when Mr. Ye took the mic away from Taylor Swift to express his opinion.

Big ups to Beyonce for being a professional,classy, and have basic moral respect for people.  You go girl!!

Kanye was wrong in on so many levels.  I was so pissed off at him Sunday night. I wanted throw dirt all over his name a reputation.  Fortunately Kanye has a conscience and apologized on the Leno night show.

Which I believed.  He made a mistake, and this time I believe his apology is sincere. Yes he has done this in the past. But i don’t think he realized how horrible it made him look.

Like i said he made a mistake. A mistake which is defined as error (Wikipedia)  Something we are all guilty of doing.

—-Reader’s I’m not going to let him off that easily———

A real man, would have apologized as soon as he knew he was wrong.  A real man, can and will swallow his pride when he is in the wrong.  During the interview, Leno asked Kanye when did he realize what he did was wrong?  Kanye says, as soon as i gave her the mic and she didn’t say anything.  Well, why didn’t you say sorry then.  What was the problem with swallowing your pride when MTV asked to you apologize.

Kanye said he was going to get some help.  I really hope he does.  It has been apparent for a long time that Kanye has a problem expressing emotions.  Regardless if his feelings are justified or not.  I question some of the people you keeps around him.  Why hasn’t anyone from his camp, team, entourage, the people closest to him, help him get help.

How many people have called Kanye crazy?  How many times have you called him crazy?

What I don’t agree with are the responses and comments being made about Kanye as a person.  WTF.  Somebody please explain to me why he is being called names, remarks being made about his mother and upbringing.  You people aka haters have some nerve.  He did not call Taylor any type of name or did he wish anything bad on her.  But you haters are doing so and all the above.

I even heard some crap said about his career being over.  Are you F***en crazy.  Be serious.  Regardless of his “Public Personality” he is a talented man.  Way more talented then KELLY CLARKSON AND PINK. ( I am a fan of both) And who in the hell is Perz Hilton. Mr. Instead of going to the Police Station when he was “Attachek” he blogged about it.  FYI Perz, your not fooling everyone.  You are sorry and people know it!!!!

PINK, I have always been a fan of yours, since your first album. ut you need to close your “sideways” mouth. Miss, I have a problem with women artist who are almost or all nude in video’s, but I can do it because………(I’ll wait for Pink to fill in the blank)
