Quotable: Roman Polanski Claims Unfair Treatment

“I can no longer remain silent because the United States continues to demand my extradition more to serve me on a platter to the media of the world than to pronounce a judgment concerning which an agreement was reached 33 years ago. I have had my share of dramas and joys, as we all have, and I am not going to try to ask you to pity my lot in life. I ask only to be treated fairly like anyone else.”

– Roman Polanski claims he’s being treated unfairly by being confined to his Swiss chalet while awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. for a crime he committed decades ago. He also alleges that the Los Angeles County district attorney is using his case to generate publicity and win reelection. [PopEater]
