For some reason people are shocked that Samantha Geimer is using a photo of herself at the age of 13 as the cover image of her autobiography centered heavily around her 1970's rape by director Roman Polanski. Though she was 13 when she was raped and the photo was taken by Polanski himself a couple weeks before the assault while he was pretending to be an artistic photographer of pretty girls. So, it's actually not shocking, it actually makes total and perfect sense. What is shocking is that Roman Polanski never went to jail for drugging and sodomizing a thirteen year old girl in Jack Nicholson's hot tub. Just letting a child into Jack Nicholson's hot tub ought to be a crime. Polanski fled to France when he found out his sweetheart probation deal for the rape might be taken off the table. So, there he's lived all these years making movies, banging younger woman and maybe more girls, and being lauded as a saint. We spent a decade and billions of dollars finding and rubbing out Bin Laden. We know where Polanski is. And the French are not nearly as tough as the Taliban, just saying.
