or pleading guilty to committing) such an act.
And a 44 year old man having sex with a girl he knows is only 13 certainly qualifies as one of those acts. Men do not have sex with girls. Doing so is wrong, wrong, wrong. It is sick, sick, sick. Period. No excuses. And any man who fails to follow this simple rule is, by definition, so mentally sick and morally deficient that society is best served by killing them as quickly as a firing squad can be put together.
Whether Polanski forced himself on the girl is irrelevant as even if she participated willingly (as willingly as someone under the age of consent can be), what he did was still sick and he still should have been taken out back and shot. Whether he drugged her is irrelevant as even if she wasn't drugged or she was drugged but by someone else, what he did was still sick and he still should have been taken out back and shot.
And the fact that he wasn't shot and was apparently going to receive some minimal jail time is testament that our criminal justice system doesn't do a good job of properly punishing those who need it.
