First of all, every bad thing that has happened to him since 1978 he deserved. That said, what bothers me more is people in the USA still desire watching his movies. That he gets awards, respect, and admiration from people makes me wonder about them. However, I also question what purpose arresting him now serves. The victim herself has said for years she wants this dropped so she can move on; every new movie he's released opens these wounds, as does his arrest now. That he hasn't been in the USA freely in over thirty years is, in my opinion, also a severe punishment, and unless terms are reached, all this does is open the doors for him to travel freely around the USA, and other countries, once again without the fear he has lived with for thirty plus years. Has he been punished enough? No. However, you are removing one of the biggest, most severe prisons one can bear; one they made for themselves. Also, I don't see the comparison between this and President Nixon as valid. President Nixon wasn't pardoned because he suffered enough; he was pardoned to keep from tearing the country apart during his trials, which easily would have lasted until the mid-eighties.
