On raping Polanski

There is a blogging group called themselves the astute bloggers, but from what I have read by them, whatever they have to offer it is not astuteness.  Here is their “take: on Roman Polanski being transferred from a Swiss jail to his Swiss chalet-

INSTEAD OF RELAXING IN A CHALET IN GSTAAD, POLANSKI DESERVES JUSTICE.

LET’S SEND HIM TO PRISON WHERE OTHER INMATES CAN DO TO HIM WHAT HE DID TO THAT 13 YEAR OLD GIRL

Well, even if  the above comment is not astute, it is unadulterated honest bigotry.  Or to put it in other terms, it is blatant hatemongering.  Or in modern day lingo, it’s Polanski haters unplugged.

And for those who still believe in civility , let us not forget that Polanski was in that Swiss jail not for punishment but rather as a detainee.  We detain detainees not for the sake of punishment.  Polanski was detained in jail and now is detained in his chalet. 

The fact that the chalet is a very hospitable environment is really beside the point.  Unfortunately, what is the point to all too many Americans is that jails for detainees, the presumed innocent, should be like New York City’s Riker’s Island, an island where the presumed innocent are punished and degraded on an everyday basis.

Riker’s Island and other similar institutions in America and around the world indicate the game will remain the same.  It means that those calling themselves astute create insitutions that have more rapists exiting than entering.

The dankprofessoer knows where rape is going on and it is not in a plush Swiss chalet but rather in our jails and prisons.

  1. What THE BLOGGERS want to be DONE is CLEARY IMPOSSIBLE ,there is NO PRISON similar to JACK NICKOLSON ‘S villa ,where the CHAMPAGNE is waiting TO BE TAKEN from the SUITABLE PLACE & the other STUFF is also NOT TO BE RECREATED – maybe FOR THE MEANS of MOVIE MAKING only ,ALSO we can ‘t EXPECT the INMAYES to ENGADGE in THE PURSIT OF PHOTO SHUT as THEY PROBABLY not prepeared TO ORGANIZE the ATMOSPHERE & STAGE THE STUFF as It ought to BE ,when It comes TO THE SEXUAL ACTIVITY which was ON there is A PROBLEM OF FOLLOWING EXACTLY THE SEQUENCE of THE EVENTS which TOOK PLACE & ACTING OUT the PART OF THE DIRECTOR – which COULD BE QUITE DIFFICULT FOR THEM ,difficult AS THEY don ‘t KNOW ALL THE MOVES ,THOUGHTS & LITTLE STEPS which WERE EXPERIENCED by THE so CALLED ACCUSED so THEIR IDEA is SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO REALISE .
    Even IDEA itself is QUITE UNREALISTIC It ‘s SPEAKS ON the REALITY – or TO SAY It in A BETTER WAY on NATURE of Its AUTHORS ,this NATURE which COULD be ALSO CALLED HUMAN NATURE has to DO with BEING A HUMAN in a lot of WAYS – It means people don ‘t INVESTIGATE FACTS on THEMSELVES ,people tend to LISTEN what the OTHERS tell THEM & THEY have SIMPLE VIEWS of the EVNTS ,those VIEWS are NOT CONNECTED with THE FACTS which HAPPENED but WITH THE FEELINGS THEY AWAKE ,as THE FEELINGS are IDENTIFIED with THE EVENT other EVENTS are OUGHT FOR to CHANGE THE FEELINGS engadged ,like THEY EXPECT to be SAFE AGAIN If THE so CALLED EVIL comes BACK to Its SOURCE .
    All this MEANS LACK OF IMAGINATION ,UNDEVELOPED REASONING ,lack OF COMMON SENSE & of course LACK of KNOWLEDGE of MAN ‘S CULTURE ,MAN ‘S HISTORY – ONE could say THEY ARE POOR PEOPLE ,leave THEM ALONE they would NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG to YOU – THEY COULD only HARM THEMSELVES but THE PROBLEM is THERE IS A LOT of SUCH ,MAJORITY of THE WORLD is LIKE THIS NOW – ALAS!!! – so THRE is REALLY A PROBLEM which IS NOT TO BE SOLVED by SENDING THEM SOMEWHERE or KEEPING them AWAY from SOME OTHERS but ALL THIS NEEDS QUITE DIFFERENT MEANS to be USED ,which ARE NOT THE ISSUE of THIS COMMENT .
