Selena Gomez' Alleged Stalker

To Be Released

Criminal Charges DISMISSED

Thomas Brodnicki
-- the man who allegedly told his shrink and an LAPD detective he had many conversations with God about killing Selena Gomez -- has just had his felony stalking charge dismissed, and he's about to go free.

Although LAPD detectives say Brodnicki is a "credible threat" to Gomez, the judge said there wasn't sufficient evidence that Brodnicki intended to convey threats to Selena -- an element of the crime which prosecutors must prove.

The judge just said Brodnicki will be held for 30 minutes, to give prosecutors a chance to present sufficient evidence -- if that doesn't happen, Brodnicki will be a free man.

There is, however, a civil restraining order against him, requiring him to stay clear of Selena.

TMZ has a producer in the courtroom who heard Brodnicki's lawyer say to Brodnicki after the judge's ruling, "Get the f**k out while you can."

Google Rebecca Shafer, an actress that was killed by her stalker in 1989. The judge might need to be investigated here.

Somebody needs to start a civil commitment on this whackjob to get him off the streets. Rebecca Shaffer does come to mind.

A judge dismisses charges against a guy for something he hasn't done and this is news?While it is disturbing he talks about killing her don't ya have to actuly have to stalk somebody in order to be charged with it?I don't see anything in here saying he did.Hopefully he abides by the restraining order.

That's scary. I'd be putting on extra security and staying off Twitter if I were her.

A body guard needs to put an anonymous hurtin' on him, just to remind him.

ok    

Gomez is a "wanton prude"
Dresses the part, but doesn't sync up with it.
Just a little skanky girl who needs to grow up, but dresses like she's a 30 year old milf. She makes no sense.

It's strange with all these insane stalkers.I hope she has enough security to knock all her stalkers down.

I hope the system hasn't failed yet another young hollywood star. There are at least 2 other incidents where a singer and an actress were killed by their stalkers. I hope this young lady gets round the clock security. With Bieber as a boyfriend, they should be able to afford security. It's just awful that they are setting this sociopath free. I am older and really don't even know who Selena Gomez is, but I would be really p'o'd right now if I was her.
