What is it with Villagers and their extralegal remedies?
Roman Polanski is a criminal, Roberts said. “He raped and drugged and raped and sodomized a child. And then was a fugitive from justice. As far as I’m concerned, just take him out and shoot him.
My differences with the lockstep left on the Libby verdict involve matters of sentencing: Instead of sending Scooter to jail, at public expense, I’d rather have him paying back the public by emptying bedpans at Walter Reed and having to stare, every day, into the eyes of those whose lives he shattered. He can do this wearing an ankle bracelet or whatever. But I want to see him–and the rest of them–pay a personal price for this war.

Let Polanski go — but first let me at him.
It’s like some crazy marriage of “Dirty Harry” and the fake Seinfeld pilot where George is sentenced to be Jerry’s butler.
This is how children think of crime and punishment.
