The Swiss caved in and have granted Roman Polanski bail. That's right. An electronic bracelet is all that is going to keep Polanski from making a run for the French border. That and the $4.5M he is posting as bail. You think he could make that much in his next movie? Yeah he probably could. And how long do you think it would take him to get back to France from his chalet? I think reporters are still searching but this is probably the first time someone who was supposed to be extradited has been granted bail. It shows you what having a lot of money and passing a few bucks around can accomplish.
This is a f**king travesty. I liked having him in jail. I wanted him to stay in a Swiss jail for months and months while they decided what to do. If and when he came to the US and some judge here decided to let him go, at least I would have had the satisfaction of knowing he spent a very long time in a Swiss jail. Now though he will be at his chalet with his servants and his skiing and this really, really pisses me off.
