Finally Some Justice in the Polanski Case?


Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate [pic source]

Charles Manson followers cut Tate's unborn baby out of her stomach in a reign of terror in California about 40 years ago.

Polanski was offered, and took a plea deal in a case of his having sex with an underage partner. The court reneged on the deal. So Polanski fled. If deals aren't kept in courts, is that more proof of US Kangaroo Courts? What Roman did was wrong, he should have been punished? Many think he was. Should there be oversight, checks and balances, and ethics in US Courts?

[This] is how courts work for the rest of us. Check out comments in [this post].

Switzerland won't extradite Polanski to the U.S.
Swiss release director, claim U.S. failed to share confidential testimony
[source]

BERN, Switzerland — The Swiss government declared renowned film director Roman Polanski a free man on Monday after rejecting a U.S. request to extradite him on a charge of having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl.

The Swiss mostly blamed U.S. authorities for failing to provide confidential testimony about Polanski's sentencing procedure in 1977-1978.

The Justice Ministry also said that national interests were taken into consideration in the stunning decision.

"The 76-year-old French-Polish film director Roman Polanski will not be extradited to the USA," the ministry said in a statement. "The freedom-restricting measures against him have been revoked."

Polanski's lawyer Herve Temime said the director was still at his Swiss chalet in the resort of Gstaad, where he has been held under house arrest since December.

Switzerland's top justice official said he could now leave.

"Mr. Polanski can now move freely. Since 12:30 today he's a free man," Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf declared.

Approving extradition had seemed the likeliest scenario after Polanski was arrested on Sept. 26 as he arrived in Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award from a film festival. Polanski had also suffered a series of legal setbacks this year in California courts.

Widmer-Schlumpf said the decision was not meant to excuse Polanski's crime, saying the issue was "not about deciding whether he is guilty or not guilty."

The Oscar-winning director of "Rosemary's Baby," "Chinatown" and "The Pianist" was accused of plying his victim with champagne and part of a Quaalude during a 1977 modeling shoot and raping her. He was initially indicted on six felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, child molesting and sodomy, but pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse.

What happened after that is a subject of dispute. The defense says the now deceased judge, Laurence J. Rittenband, had agreed in meetings with attorneys to sentence Polanski to a 90-day diagnostic study and nothing more. The judge later changed his mind and summoned Polanski for further sentencing — at which time he fled to his native France, attorneys say.

The real terrorism in the US is what passes for policing and "justice" in courts.

Allegedly, Connecticut and Massachusetts State Police are involved in child abductions, selling children and women into international White Sexual Slavery, murder-for-hire, prostitution, drug dealing, extortion, racketeering, thuggery, obstruction of justice, and colluding with the FBI to manufacture and destroy evidence to rig court cases and/or to protect their operatives according to a Canadian source.

Why would a police officer who alleged wrongdoing of other officers involving child molestation and other police misconduct in the state of Connecticut, "commit suicide", after being summoned to a call in Norwalk, holding an AK-47 outstretched by its barrel to kill himself? [that story]

Did New Haven Connecticut Narcotics Detective, Lt. William "Billy" White compete with the Connecticut State Police narcotics and prostitution service, and get nailed for doing the same thing they were without their blessing?


Are Connecticut officers too busy sleeping with prostitutes, organizing criminal gangs, and breaking laws to protect and serve the public. The below video shows all too typical behavior of Connecticut Police Officers. Many continue to cover for each other, and less than 1% of police misconduct complaints in the state of Connecticut actually get investigated.

Are some officers in some police departments, even though they receive millions in tax dollars, to busy sleeping with prostitutes and socializing with drug dealers to answer citizen 911 distress calls? Well, check out the Officer Durgin video below.

Do you want to score heroin or crack cocaine, find a prostitute, do you want to have someone killed or beaten up? Well, in Connecticut, your needs are close and easy, just having cash on you, and knowing which cop to ask and there you go.

Do you want to score drugs?

Well, Connecticut cops might have the strongest drugs at the best prices. Want to score "jail bait"? Again you might want to ask a Connecticut Police Officer. There are a greater percentage of good officers, why are they so often silent?

New Haven police officers arrested

(New Haven-WTNH) _ At least five people, including two New Haven police officers, were arrested Tuesday. The charges include conspiracy and theft of government funds, and bribery.

The officers are identified as Lt. Billy White, Sr., the head of the department's Narcotics Division, and Det. Justin Kasperzyk.

"I'm disguested, I'm upset, frustrated," New Haven Police Chief Francisco Ortiz said.

White is accused of theft of government funds and conspiracy. In an afternoon court appearance, the FBI said they have video and audio evidence of White that was taken during a sting operation.

The officers are accused in part of taking money from drug scenes. In one piece of evidence, prosecutors showed a picture of someone they say is White holding a bag that contained $27,000 in cash.

Kasperzyk was charged with a misdemeanor crime of stealing less than $1,000.

Authorities say their investigation also led them to Jacobs Bondsman, a New Haven bail bonds business.

The three bondsmen face bribery and conspiracy charges. They are identified as Robert Jacobs, Paul Jacobs, and Philip Jacobs. They are accused of bribing White and other police officers to recapture fugitives who disappeared while on bond.

Both officers were put on administrative leave by Chief Ortiz, and an internal affairs investigation has been launched.

"There's a presumption here of innocence, but from what I've seen and what I hear and my experience tells me, um, folks ought to have known better."

A federal magistrate judge ordered White to undergo a psychological exam after learning that White made statements to police after his arrest indicating he might harm himself.

White is due back in Hartford federal court tomorrow for a hearing on whether he should be detained.

FBI Spokeswoman Marybeth Miklos says White has been with the New Haven Police dept. for about 30 years. His home was searched as part of the investigation.

New Haven Mayor John DeStefano, who was in Washington D.C., said in a news release, "We are attempting to learn more about the charges, and will be fully cooperating with the investigation," said DeStefano.

DeStefano said he's been in contact with Ortiz, and will hold a news conference about the arrests at 9:30 tonight.

Are all US States run like Connecticut and cities like Boston, Massachusetts? Citizens who get in the way of organized crime can get whacked with full knowledge of the FBI or railroaded to prison by State Police. If you contact the Connecticut Governor's Office or make a police misconduct complaint, you can be placed on the "arrest on sight" list.

If you want to know the history of the Mafia, Connecticut Kangaroo Courts, the Police, and the FBI, I suggest you read the book "Squeal" by Les Coleman:

This is very disappointing to hear. Time does not make a crime disappear! And I don't even care if the victim doesn't want him prosecuted now. It's not about her, it's about the sovereignty of our justice system; it is disgusting that a celebrity can get of the hook for a crime like this, no matter how long ago it occurred. Justice should know no time limits!

I agree with you on a point. This post isn't about that.

If a plea deal is offered by the government, and it is accepted by the party being prosecuted, the government should keep its word. What is "justice", if there is no semblance of justice.

Those running the courts get many citizens to agree to a plea bargain when nothing has been done wrong, just to end the judicial abuse. If the court is a farce, and those running the courts are just liars, why not take a chance of a full blown trial, each and every time?

Lawyers are mostly liars. Why not take a chance with a jury, maybe there is a slight chance of justice, even in an American court that way.
