The Long Arm of the Law

by Lewis Manalo

Looks like Roman Polanski has finally been arrested after jumping bail nearly 30 years ago. And he’s been arrested by the Swiss. According to the Guardian, Polanski “was detained at immigration in Zurich on Saturday night at the request of the US justice department and was in custody awaiting extradition.”

Everyone agrees that the timing is strange. Evidence that his case was mishandled came out last year with the release of Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, and even the victim of his crime, who was 13 years old when Polanski had sex with her, wants Polanski’s case to be dismissed.

One thing’s for sure for this Holocaust survivor, widower, criminal, and filmmaker: life is certainly interesting.
