Roman Polanski Cut Loose By Swiss

Roman released

In a bit of terrific news for anyone who was worried that there might not be enough to argue about on the Internet this week, Switzerland has rejected the U.S. government’s request to extradite director Roman Polanski on his 1977 rape charge. It seems like decades since that this whole thing went down (Polanski’s Swiss detention, not the actual crime), but it was actually less than a year ago. Now I guess we’ll never be able to determine if it was rape or rape-rape. [Image via]
