People who send me nasty letters are often guided by sympathy for the devil, from a place where, in Mick Jagger’s immortal words, “every cop is a criminal, and all the sinners saints.” I’ll write a story on a Hip-Hopper who openly supports al Qaeda, or on “pacifists” allied with terrorists, on black racism, or on crime, and in come the death threats, the people telling me I’m the source of all the world’s woes, and the attempts to gag me through the threat of frivolous lawsuits. The attitude of such correspondents is, if I tell the truth, I’m a liar, but if I’ll lie for their side, then I’m a good guy.
And so it is, with the Roman Polanski case. In a recent column, I wrote on rapist-pedophile-fugitive Roman Polanski’s successful perversion – with the help of some incompetent British jurists — of the English legal system.
The following letter came on Sunday evening.
" Thank you for your assassination of Roman Polanski. I really believe, as he has stated ,that this libel lawsuit was about the defamation of the late Sharon Tate Polanskis' Yes Roman Polanski had an affair with an underage young girl..who has gone on record as saying she does not hold anything against him. He apparently has a sexual addiction..Sharon knew this and according to reliable sources was on the verge of divorcing him when she was
horribly murdered. Her problem being as she has been quoted " He's my Roman and I love him." The model in question has gone on record to say " That's not how I remember it." She claims he just stared at her as if she reminded him of Sharon. When the suppose victim will not testify against him how smart are the lawyers? Because of his fame and fortune he has made a lot of money, possibly received favors.
"In consideration of the horrible things that has happened to the poor man I can
almost understand.....or if the (girl) now woman felt justice needed to be served...Having grown up during Nazi Germany, having his wife, child and friends horrendously murdered could negatively effect probably anyone.... I feel sure he does not enjoy knowing he is a fugitive, but with the unpleasant things that have happened to him for seemingly no reason ..I doubt he feels
he would get a fair trial...or simply hasn't the man suffered enough?
