deal or no deal?

My stepfather’s letter to the editor regarding the outpouring of support for Roman Polanski.

Polanski unforgiven

Roman Polanski is being touted as the poster child for forgiveness. After all, 31 years have gone by and time heals all wounds so why punish him now for child rape? Being a great director with an alpine chalet for vacations proves he has been rehabilitated.

To those who feel this way, let’s make a deal! Give your minor child over to a sexual predator for one hour and hope in 30 years you can forgive him. Pray that child won’t have any issues and go on with a normal life.

As for French Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand who is upset that Polanski is being “thrown to the lions for an old story that doesn’t really make any sense,” would he recommend placing his children or grandchildren with a child predator for an hour or so? This shouldn’t upset them or him.

Deal, or no deal?
