By the standards of many of the "people" posting here, the wealthy=virtuous and the non-wealthy or poor=criminals. Sad.

so amazed at all these comments. Mel is doing a great job of turning and twisting this whole thing around to make oksana the bad guy. All the people posting comments defending him have obviously never met him! Believe me he is a monster and so many people around him are afraid of him and will never say anything. So bizarre to me that the public are not able to see through his BS. Amazing

When it comes to a pretty woman men don't think with their brains

I can't believe the vote results! I'm shocked. Have you heard the tapes? What if that was your boyfriend or husband screaming at you, calling you every vile name. No one deserves that, it's frightening. He's acting like a mad man and voters think he does not deserve to do time for domestic violence? As the ghost of Bernie Mac would say, "'Merica, Wake the f' up!"

SandraD I totally agree.

I absolutely agree that Mel should not be excused for his racist rants. However, Oksana is totally ignoring the Judges request by holding court daily in the media.

It's all moot point in the end...

If the recordings are edited [and I believe they are] and if Mel's team has proof that she texted and emailed him about the money before the mediation [and I believe they do] not only will Oksana miss out on a really big payday, she is staring hard time in the face.

Absolutely correct. Here's what happened:

Mel and Oksana had an argument, and Mel broke up with her. In his anger, he told her she wasn't going to get a penny. She starts taping parts of conversations with him and texts, and so forth. During part of those tapes, Mel tells her to stay away from him. He also tells she isn't going to get any money.

Despite her assertion that she is terrified of Mel, and in "fear of her life," and her statement that she "didn't think she would make it through the night," she doesn't remove her children from harm's way; doesn't call 911; doesn't go to the emergency room. She also doesn't secure any medical attention for her baby. She spends hours taping, and monitoring texts. She saves this "evidence" for a day when she can use it to get money out of him, when she needs to.

Months later, she and her children are still with Mel, and he breaks up with her again. She signs a preliminary agreement for $15mil. breakup settlement. Then a new attorney tells her she can get more money. He refuses to sign the final agreement. She edits the tapes, leaks them to ROL, because TMZ would have enough legal expertise and common sense not to to run them. She tells the courts that Mel is too dangerous to be around her infant daughter.

She makes phony claims about being beaten up, and out of nowhere leaks phony photos of a "black eye" that clearly show she was never beaten up. She loses 1.5 veneers of her teeth; also not evidence that she was beaten up, or "punched twice in the face."

She seeks public sympathy as a means of extorting more money out of Mel, and to garner public sympathy and publicity to help sell her second CD because the first one bombed so badly.

She doesn't tell the judge in the visitation rights matter for Mel and their infant child about the $15mil settlement.

She gives "street interviews" with Radar, and lashes out at Mel, and giving even more evidence as to her intentions, while stating a half a dozen times that she can't "say anything about this."

I, for one, don't need a house to fall on me to see where this woman is coming from. Neither do her PR reps who have all dropped her like a hot potato.

Oops - mean to say SHE refuses to sign the final agreement. She edits the tapes, leaks them to ROL, because TMZ would have enough legal expertise and common sense not to run them. She tells the courts that Mel is too dangerous to be around her infant daughter.

Sorry for that long post.

So accordinging to that train of 'logic', what your saying is that rather than try to correct the unjust treatment of minorities who may be innocent and yet treated unfairly..(which has clearly been proven to NOT be so in the case of OJ nor Chris Brown, ie see 'CREDIBLE UNDISPUTED EVIDENCE IN COURT'.....what you suggest as a solution would be to bring down gibson in the same way just because he is NOT a minority even though his guilt has not yet been shown in a court of law???
Aren't you manifesting the same type of prejudging (ie prejudice) towards him in that he IS NOT a minority?

Shouldn't the deciding factor be GUILT OR INNOCENCE not race?
It's the system that is flawed in your complaint here, Mel Gibson is not the system, and he, as any other person, did not choose his ethnicity.

I agree w/ you that there is a lot to be corrected, but adding to the injustice does not make it less so.

So let fix the wrong by further compiling it???

As far as his not respomnding publicly, his guilt or innocence is not for the PR spin nor the public to decide, but for the legal authorities and the court whio, unlike the gossip sites and media outlets at large, have to uphold a standard of credibility in evidence rather than just

-------------------------------------------------

Gibson's camp hasn't said a word, so I'm not sure how they are twisting the facts of this case. People have drawn conclusion based on Oksana's own actions and the fact that the courts did not restrict Gibson's visitation. The courts have the real evidence, not the "evidence" sold to Radar. Most of us are waiting for that evidence to be revealed and not relying on what Radar/Oksana is spinning.

So I take it you have met Gibson and he is a "monster." Please tell us more of your dealings with him. You can't come on a public board and make these types of statements without backing them up.

TEAM MEL ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!

Oksana saw pepple directly after the Jan. 6th incident and NO ONE saw a black eye, she is a LIAR and doesn't care about truth or morals whatsoever. Her dentist said several times that her tooth damage did not appear to be from any kind of hit at all, AT ALL, then all of a sudden out of mo where he changes his story??? SHE WILL PAY ANYONE OFF AND OFFER THEM ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY TO LIE FOR HER BECAUSE SHE IS A SELFISH TWISTED IMMORAL HUMAN BEING

I agree with the poster who stated the obvious. I think TMZ has sour apples with Radar for releasing the tapes. TMZ is skewed towards Mel. Where is the PROOF of extortion? She walked away from a 15 million dollar deal. She has this lunatic on tape with his ranting and threats. Tampered tapes? This isn't an episode of CSI. Who do you know with editing equipment sitting around their house? If she does then she would be able to pay her lawyers. One question for every mother that voted "no" Mel is not a threat to his child. Would you leave your child in the company of this man? And I still argue..does the extortion negate the abuse. No it does not. She could have been abused and decided to use that said abuse to her advantage. Is it right, no, but it seems that most posters are willing to forgive Mel's threats on the grounds that she's not likable. Let this be a lesson for men who decide to leave their wives for that 20%. You know the 80/20 rule?
