    I think a nation can look for more than one person at a time. But thanks for your concern.

    According to a Swiss official, they knew where he was going to be, and they had a legitimate extradition request from the US government.

    He broke the law. The fact that he may be punished for something that happened so long ago is his own fault for fleeing in the first place.
    than the deal was time served as was stated here so what is the fuss. oh someone didn't honor the deal that would be another inept American judge. holy smoke do you believe that.

    you can look for more than one at a time. so tell me where is your Bin Laden? i guess maybe you can't find more than one. at a time. he has escaped from your entire military might. hehehehe

    yes and the Swiss are returning a person who by the original deal should be free. that makes sense.

    he left because he was not given the sentence he was promised. now this is his fault. no blame the people that changed the deal after they got a confession on false pretentious.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    The big deal is that he was never sentenced, which makes him a fugitive. No different than someone who escaped from prison.

    And yet, I don't think the arrest of Roman Polanski will affect the search for Bin Laden much at all. But again, thanks for your concern.

    He did not come back.

    He fled because he was afraid of your judicial system and I can understand him there.

    He pleaded guilty to a crime he possibly did not commit because he was told to do so by his legal consellors.

    Do you know how many years of study are required to become a judge? You are all here trying to judge him without knowing the case. The fact the alleged victim wants to burry it should be very telling.

    I don't think he should be charged with the separate crime for fleeing arrest, since it sounds like he may have truly been worried that they would renege, and since the statute of limitations is up.

    He should, however, be sentenced for the crime to which he pleaded guilty, in accordance with his plea bargain. Until that happens, he is a fugitive from justice and the US government is right for pursuing him.

    I am not trying to judge him at all. He most certainly should face trial, where he would be judged. He is far more likely than most to see a successful legal evasion of punishment, since he has more money than most to spend on lawyers.

    We do have a responsibility to those who live in this country to ensure that fleeing is not a way to evade punishment until it is forgotten.

    This is exactly what I predicted would happen. Americans/Britons on one side of this issue, and continental Europeans on the other. Obviously the cultural divide on matters of justice is incredibly wide.

    It doesn't matter what he did, or didn't think. Fleeing justice is a crime and he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    He was never given any sentence at all. He FLED.
    I used to live in the US. i never realized just how anal Americans can get over silly ****.
    this really is silly stuff.

    when the woman wants to drop all this why the big deal. what are you all trying to prove?

    he fled because the deal he made was not going to be honored by a judge that broke his word. If you made a deal to buy a car for 20000 and then the manager says when it is time to write the check, i changed my mind it is 32000 would you stay around to honor your deal by paying 12000 more. it is the same thing. exactly the same thing. would you give up the extra 12000? according to this you would do just that.

    Statutory rape is most certainly not silly ****.

    Fleeing and evading criminal prosecutions is not silly ****.
