Even French Debate Polanski

Posted By on Tue, Sep 29, 2009 at 4:44 PM

Despite some French folks beating the drums of freedom for Roman Polanski, including the country's own president, not every French national is wearing a Free Polanski badge this week.

Polanski has citizenship in Poland and France—but it was interesting to read that his fellow French citizens, according to this piece in today's New York Times, still think it unwise to rush to defend a celebrity who raped a 13-year-old girl (even if that rape occurred in the early 1970s). Perhaps a campaign would be better waged in Spain, where the age of consent is reportedly 13.

C'est la vie!
