You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me

Bail Offer for Roman Polanski Is Approved:
The Associated Press is reporting that a Swiss court has approved Roman Polanski's offer to be released from prison on a $4.5 million bail. Under the terms of the offer, Mr. Polanski will be kept under house arrest and monitored electronically at his Swiss chalet.

The Swiss Justice Ministry told The A.P. that it will keep Mr. Polanski in jail until it decides whether to appeal his release to that country's supreme court. The Swiss Criminal Court said it still considered Mr. Polanski a high flight risk, but that the new bail offer was significant enough to offset those concerns.
I don't even know what to say anymore. I just hope the poor dear can survive the heinous imprisonment at his Swiss chalet.

No matter how horrible, though, I'm totally sure that he won't flee from a country with an extradition treaty, because he's proven time and again what an upstanding citizen he is.
