The funny thing about all this uproar over Gunn is that both sides (liberals and conservatives) make up the majority of the public who are unforgiving of people’s pasts.
As I was reading through these comments I started to think about the time, a few years ago, when California district attorney wanted to have Roman Polanski extradited back to the U.S. to have him serve the sentence that was handed down to him for his BLATANT RAPE of a 13 yr old whom he intoxicated and drugged.
And when the news broke that prosecutors wanted him back here to fulfill that sentence with the added charges of fleeing the country, many very high profile Hollywood celebrities (Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg among them) spoke out AGAINST the extradition and basically said “Its old news. Leave him alone about it”.
Funny how people pick and choose who they’ll forgive and who they’ll forever shame, isn’t it?

If Roman Polanski can have major Hollywood names standing in his favor, why the hell are we all scared shitless to stand up for ourselves?

Food for thought.
