Roman Polanksi Undergoing Medical Treatment

10/17/2009 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Roman Polanski has been moved from jail to undergo medical treatment, his lawyer announced today.

Herve Temime wouldn't go into too much detail, telling Reuters, "All I know is that he has been taken from prison for medical attention. I don't know where he is or when he will be returned to prison."

Polanksi has been in a Swiss jail since being arrested three weeks ago to face extradition to the U.S.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy entertainment and good movies. But it's no surprise this happened and goes on in an industry, within an elite society that is above God. To them, (most of them not all) God is just another script. Another starring role...And the pitiful almost laughable part, sadly, is that many in the business would sell their soul to the Devil, for the part. This man has had his freedom far too long. He needs to be brought “back” to justice and pay the price for the crimes he has committed. Read my blog on it http://consciousobserverjeff.blogspot.com/

Here is hoping he has something terminal. There is a special place in hell for self-congratulating pedophiles like Roman Polanski.

while your all frying him for having sex with a girl he thought was older than 13 or 14, how bout some of that blame going to her Mother! what kind of parent drops her little girl off alone to do a topless photo shoot with anyone at a private residence? Really! lets not put all the blame on Roman, he did not lure this child to his friends house to hurt her, her Mother sent her in there to try and make it big in hollywood. Thats what it was like back in the 70's sleep your way to the top. But she had NO business taking the drink or the pill, she was a teen trying to be a grown up and lying about her age. She had No business being there without a guardian if she was not old enough and though I have not looked up when it became law, there is a law that a child is not allowed to be on any set without a parent/guardian on set at all times. My daughter is 18 and I still go with her on shoots and auditions just to make sure she is not being scammed in any way. I think Roman was off his rocker on drugs and the loss of his wife and child and I think her monther was willing to let her kid do anything to get a chance at the big money.

Polanksi HAS GONE FROM DIRECTOR TO ACTOR. HIS GREATEST DIRECTORIAL IS HIS CURRENT ACTING LIKE HE'S SICK. PROBABLY IN HOSPITAL WAITING FOR HIS FRIENDS TO GET HIM OUT & TAKE HIM BACK TO FRANCE.

Patti,

you are both SICK and stupid. Your facts are completely wrong, I guess you didn't take the time to read the court transcripts.

1) Polanski testified that he KNEW that she was only 13 years old

2) This was a regular photo shot, NOT a topless one. It was the pedophile Polanski that FORCED the little kid to take off her clothes.

3) The mother knew nothing about his sickness. After he raped the kid, he told her to keep it a secret from her mom (classic pedophile behavior). As soon as she got home she told her mom and her mom called the police right away.

4) Polanski wasn't off his rockers, he knew EXACTLY what he was doing. He gave the kid drugs and alcohol hoping to knock her out. She told him no and asked him to take her home. No 13 year old wants some 43-year old rotten D@CK in her butt! He drugged her, raped and SODOMIZED her. No means no.

5) His wife died 8 YEARS ago before the rape. He should be ashamed for using his poor dead wife as an excuse. Many men loose their wives to violence daily but they don't go around raping little children as a reward.

6) I hope he rots in jail. This excuse of being sick sounds like another trick to get out of jail. His lawyers are probably trying to break him out of jail and then cross the border back to France where they let child rapists run around.

Yes, he'll need to have his anal cavity enlarged before he returns to prison.

Hey, let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt and assume he is in need of medical attention. And let's hope the reason he needs medical attention is because he met up with the prison's Welcoming Committee in the prison shower. Don't worry, Roman, just pick up the soap and we'll take care of the rest.

Polanski, is surely sick and it is not a physical condition. He will just run back to France where raping young women is not really "rape-rape". The justice system only works for the poor of the world!
