eternal light Posted October 8, 2009 Share Posted October 8, 2009 Look, let's be realistic here: Just about anyone who was anyone on the West Coast scene was fucking underaged girls back in the 70's. There were articles in 1973 in major american publications, such as Newsweek talking about places like Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco that were packed with girls under the age of 16 looking for action, and what intrigues me is back then it wasn't as outrageous or deplorable as what it is now. And a lot of people from the music and entertainment industries, some big names that frequented places like that, weren't buying those girls a glass of milk and sending them home at 10pm... Polanski's misfortune seems to be that he was the only one from that scene who got arrested for it. This young lady who he took advantage of was not frequenting a place like Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco. She was hired to work on a photo shoot for Vogue magazine. She has a right to pursue a career free of this kind of interference. She said no and declined his advances. She stated in testimony that she was afraid of him. She cried after he had used her. He was definitely in the wrong. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
