Well I am sure some of the people on his show thought the same things...ehh it was a petty offense $500 bail...why would they bother.
And why Couldn't they? he broke a law in thier country, I guess I am stupid when it comes to stuff like this but why would they think they couldn't go after him?
I don't know, I am understanding what ant1999e is saying from a moral standpoint about getting the rapist off the streets and also him getting screwed of the money even though USA gladly took the prisoner, but from a law standpoint and what he did was against the law in the country he did it in so I guess I don't understand the outrage.
If I went and did the same thing would americans be on my side...I highly doubt it, but since it is a "tv star" we have to rally around him?
