misscam: (Fuck this shit)
I know, I know, it's like picking a scab, but I can't help myself.

So, a petition has sprung up asking for Roman Polanski's release, where his arrest is charmingly described as "a case of morals" and they show a distrurbing lack of knowledge of what a neutral country actually is. (Tip: It's about neutrality in wars, nothing to do with crime.)

People who've signed that one includes Terry Gilliam (nooooo), Salman Rushdie, Tilda Swinton, David Lynch, Woddy Allen and Whoopi Goldberg.

Whoopi Goldberg said this: “I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and when they let him out he was like, ‘You know what, this [judge] is going to give me a hundred years in jail. I’m not staying’.” (Source.)

Wherein Cam discusses Bill Napoli definitions of rape, putting it on the victim, doing harm and Roman Polanski's own charming words about what he did )

There are also some who are speaking up against support of Roman Polanski, and I give them props: Bill Maher, Kevin Smith and Gren Gunberg at least.

I sure hope some petition to have him face justice comes about and enough sign it to make me feel better about humanity. Because right now, I'm not feeling so great about it.
