Roman Polanski’s Sex Assault Victim Pleads to End Case, Says ‘He Owes Me Nothing’
LOS ANGELES — Roman Polanski’s sexual assault victim made an impassioned plea Friday to end the fugitive director’s four-decade legal saga, saying she felt more abused by the legal justice system than by the man who she said drugged, raped and sodomized her when she was 13.
“The trauma of the ordeal that followed was so great that, you know, the brief encounter with him that evening that was unpleasant just faded and paled,” Samantha Geimer said outside a courtroom in Los Angeles Superior Court. “It just wasn’t as traumatic for me as everybody would like to believe it was.”
Some of the reader comments about this woman are hilarious. “How dare she not be the victim we demand her to be!”
Yeah, how dare too that she indict the system. That’s because we need to punish everyone for absolutely everything that we’re totally weird about these days.
No one’s defending Polanski on this one, it’s just that when it comes to sex most people now are totally and completely nuts. They’re either sneaking around and fucking in secret, online or furtively the same, or else they’re flagellating themselves about how they once never had to do so — and conveniently took advantage of the scene that they now deplore so fashionably.
Oh, the regret! So go get ’em!
