Maybe there is another, obscurer, motive at play for defending Polanski.
Namely, the psychological impulse to "protect" someone who has
succesfully escaped the law for 32 years. People tend to have positive
feelings towards a fugitive that manages to survive being hunted down.
It's a case of "32 years on the run" ! They feel that the fugitive has
somehow managed to outsmart the authorities, something that strikes a
deep chord in many psyches.
And this is my last post on the subject of Polanski.
