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!

He ADMITTED he had sex with a child so what's the problem??? Get him back to the USA,somehow, and jail him.

Things were different 30 years ago.

Plus, the "child" at age 13 had had prior sex partners and her sex with Polanski was consentual.

The woman does NOT want him extradited. Time to let this case fade away.

I seriously doubt he will be extradited. The case is too old to matter and so is Polanski.

And let's face it, some precocious 13 year olds are built and sexually experienced.

Her stage mother practically pawned her off on Polanski, left the girl alone with him, and decided to cry wolf afterward.

STOP WASTING MONEY ON THIS STUPID OLD CASE!

That is a link to the list.

I'm wondering where a number of names popular in the U.S., PENELOPE CRUZ, for one, have disappeared magically. I know Cruz was on the U.S. talk show circuit peddling some movie she's in lately. How convenient. Natalie Portman had also signed the petition, and her name is off the list as well. Emma Thompson removed her name.

Here's another list, Steven Soderbergh, Diane Von Furstenburg are there.

The greedy chocolate-eaters have sold out for a cheap few million. This malignant dwarf will be back in France before Christmas, laughing at the world. It disgusts me!

@26 and 27,Pam and Therese, You are disgusting pieces of $hit (probably the same pedophile criminal posting under another name). You are probably a pedophile(s) trying to justify your sick actions.Even if she were a "professional",child prostitution is a crime.Go fu@k yourself and I hope you will get caught soon,miserable bastard.

20. 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.

You are so right about that! All we have to do is compare the kind of coverage an adulterous man gets(not a crime) with the insignificant one this convicted child rapist is getting.His fu@king face should be on this site every single day,but noooo,he is too good for that.
People should boycott the movies of those celebrities that will be coming out soon: Natalie Portman,Penelope Cruz,Emma Thompson,that other pervert Woody Allen and all the others.

Hahaha, I didn't notice Woody Allen's name on the petition. It's funny how paedophiles all stick together.
I lived in LA for 3 years and used to love watching actors backpeddle when gushing about Woody Allen.
They would often tell me how they "would do anything to be in a Woody Allen movie". I always put the scenario to them that one day they are babysitting nieces and nephews, but Woody Allen rings up and says "I want you in my movie but I need you here today". The actor then explains they can't get out of babysitting, but Woody replies with "don't worry about that, I can look after your nephews and nieces while you film"

I then ask them if they would still "do anything" to work in a Woody Allen movie, and watch them squirm.

To anyone sympathising with these paedophiles, I ask you to think of a 13yo girl you are close to and whether you would trust these men around her. Get real!!
