Re: General question for those supporting Polanski...

But I will give you a hint: Polanski is free now, isn't he? And who decided that? Not me or you...

Polanski is free because he is a fugitive from the law. He fled justice. He is free in France and Switzerland, but if he goes to other countries, he will be arrested. So, "free" is not really the correct term. He would certainly not be free in the US, that should be obvious to everyone.

A Swiss official said their decision was not about whether Polanski was guilty or not, but based on not receiving some legal documents they requested from the US. He was released from custody on a technicality.

The State of California and the US have not dropped the charges. He is still a convicted felon who would have to face jail time if he ever gets caught.

His guilt and conviction remain.
