While the response in Hollywood and Europe was largely positive, the U.S. government has said it is “very disappointed” in Switzerland’s decision not to extradite filmmaker Roman Polanski to face sentencing from a 1977 case in California. Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf said yesterday that in part of was due to a U.S. refusal to supply a crucial court document. The Los Angeles District Attorney retorted, “Switzerland could not find a more tenuous hook on which to hang its decision.”
Our Washington correspondent Daniel Ryntjes brings us more on the U.S. reaction, then we turn to Jordan Davis who has responses from around Europe:

Polanski has been convicted in the US of having sex with a minor, which in the US is legally considered (as it should be) rape. In the eyes of US law, and anyone with a shred of morality, he is a criminal, and those who persist in defending him from the law are the worst sort of elitist enablers of the privileged and powerful.
The first appearance of Polanski in Switzerland after his release on July 12th 2010, is at a Jazz Festival in Switzerland where his wife Emmanuelle Seigner is singing music from Rosemary’s Baby!
It took the Swiss Ministry of Justice to say NO to the devil of injustice that lives on in the Santa Monica, California courtroom, assisted by Federal Court Judges, Magistrates, including those who ratified the Torture Memos,
which means that sexual assault victims who have been re-victimized by police assault and battery, and Santa Monica Judges covering up, are then victimized again by Federal Judges with Dog & Pony show decisions, using bait and switch justice, over a 12 years period to prolong the torture.
33 years later thanks to the Swiss Justice Ministry, Polanski was rescued from California’s clutches, where American justice has sorely failed.
In refusing to extradite Polanski, and by not pandering to California’s DOUBLE STANDARD, Swiss Justice also assisted sexual assault victims in California
Since a Santa Monica Judge permitted bait and switch justice and police thuggery in his Courtroom that injured a sexual assault victim,
And in Roman Polanski’s case the Judge used bait and switch justice and broke the plea bargain agreement.
Can you see the devil’s pattern yet?
Yes its that unreliable American Justice sitting in the next room, who wants to suck the life out of you, through use of bait and switch justice,
who will first bait you with a favorable or solid decision, only to suck on your blood, and throw you off a cliff years later.
