a bit of pointless grandstanding, as he never claimed he was innocent and she publicly forgave him 14 years ago.

Had you been following along over the last few decades you would know that she does not want anything to do with Polanski, does not want to think about what happened that day and after, and does not want us to be talking about it either. According to her this should have been finished and over a very long time ago, and so the LA DA going after Polanski at this late date was wrong and injurious to her.

@hawkeye10,
That was just my modest effort
toward a contribution of humor, Hawkeye
(tho I confess to not having followed it for however many decades).

Apparently she's decided to go the other way. She's written her memoir: The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanksi.

@engineer,
so far there is no book, only a cover, so it is hard to say what she is up to. however after most of a lifetime claiming to not want to be known as a victim cashing in on her victim story is problematic.

Or she has come to realize that not speaking out makes her more of a victim. Maybe she has come to realize that the US is simply playing its moralistic propaganda tune and she wants to help set the record straight.

It is only the massive weight of US propaganda that allows a country that murders half a million Iraqi children [stick in any number of nationalities and adjust for number] and verily brags about it, to pull off this kind of moralistic crap - that it cares about children.

Consider how many children/women were raped by US troops in Vietnam, Korea, Nicaragua, Japan, Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines, ... .

@JTT,
samantha has not been shy about complaining about journalists prying into her life and then mis-telling her story. we shall see, I would certainly like to see her T off again on victim culture, but it is not clear this is her goal.

Samantha maybe not, but you sure are shy about discussing the incredible hypocrisy that is the USA, Hawk.

Polánski extradition verdict expected late October

Source: Radio Poland

23.09.2015 11:40

A Polish court is expected to rule on 30 October as to whether director Roman Polánski should be extradited to the US over a 1977 case of unlawful sex with a minor.

Polánski appeared in court on Tuesday in Kraków, southern Poland, in the latest hearing in the proceedings, which began in February.

...

Polánski seemed in relatively upbeat spirits, judging by his interactions with his lawyers, Jerzy Stachowicz and Jan Olszewski.

At one point the director plucked his smartphone from his pocket, and apparently began filming the judge and journalists gathered in the courtroom. ...

The Polish court is expected to rule in his favor.

At the time, Polanski had heeded his part of a plea bargain but absconded when he had good reason to believe the judge, an asshole of sorts, would renege on his promise of no further jail time and send him to prison with an indeterminate sentence of up to fifty years.

Now, he intends to make a film about the Dreyfus affair in Poland and I'm very much looking forward to see this movie.
