Roman Polanski Bails Free to Roam

12/4/2009 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Roman PolanskiRoman Polanski is out of prison -- and is now trapped in the strict confines of his luxury, 19,000 square foot, three-story Swiss chalet.

The director -- who is fighting extradition to the U.S. for having sex with a 13-year-old girl back in 1977 -- was released after posting $4.5 million bail, clamping on an electronic monitoring device and agreeing to house arrest.

From one big house to another!

This man is vile; the lowest of the low. He's a child rapist.

Do you know who is more vile? Lower? All the Hollywood trash who signed that petition demanding Polanski's release. Aiding and abetting, anyone?

BOYCOTT the movies and products of the people who signed the Polanski petition. Read their names, burn them in your memories, and PUNISH all of them by not spending a dime of your hard earned money on any of their products.

was hoping they wouldn't release him and that he be sent right to the US for sentencing

have no confidence in his ability to stay there until this is settled

visions of him sneaking back to France where he feels safe

prison or forfeiting the millions
he has tons of $ and will earn more-it's a no brainer for him

Vegas should set odds on what happens next

my money is on flight from prosecution............. again

He isn't fighting extradition for "having sex with a 13-year-old". He is fighting extradition for drugging and raping a 13-year-old. Come on now, there's a big difference. I'm just sayin'

This A-HOLE would have been 6 feet under in 1997 if that would have been my child he molested. Mr.P your in God's hands now and what he's going to do to you is way worse than my ideas of revenge.

One thing that should be remembered here is that the victim herself stated she does not want to pursue this as it would be detrimental to her adult life and she just wants it forgotten. She said she was over it and wants everyone else to be.
That should make everything change here. The victim should be the one to make the decision, not the courts.

*Linda* have you lost your mind!

What do you expect the VICTIM to say?... she's been vilified in the public since it happened... This was a child he gave drugs to and then raped... and then all his high powered friends set about discrediting this innocent child.

The only thing that gives me comfort is... Polanski will stand before God one day...and there will be no more loopholes or running.

He RAPED and SODOMIZED a 13 year old girl!! He even admitted it. He did not just have sex with an underage girl! TMZ should be ashamed for distorting the facts.

John Landis, Woody Allen, and David Lynch are the only recognizable names I could find on the petition for this piece of trash.

If you don't want to support apologists for a vile, child rapist, avoid anything these people do like the plague.

This guy is very sick and all those who supported him- I would suspect are up to the same kind of behavior
The victim who wants to let it go- only proves the point of how badly it affected her - This is not reaction of a healthy human being/woman to want the predator be free
Roman whatever you name is - you and woody Allen by kin-

wow    

Why is this site so biased? Blacks, Christians, Asians,celebs, athletes, politicians, everyone gets skewered except Jews get portrayed in the best possible light. Notice how Jon Gosselin's coverage suddenly got less conspicuous on this site after he revealed that he's Jewish on his father's side. It's hilarious how the story doesn't mention the fact that he was convicted of rape and drugging a minor and how he tried to pay off the victim and payoff the legal system in Switzerland. I understand that Harvey Levin is trying to help his people get ahead in the world using this site and doesn't want to portray Jews in a bad light but this kind of blatant shelling does more harm than good. Can you imagine what kind of picture they'd have used for this story if Polanski wasn't a Jew? Probably him picking his nose or leering at some prepubescent girl. And the headline would probably be making fun of him and egging on some kind of assault/rape in store for Polanski in jail.
