The freed director 

As the AP headline declared, "Polanski free, Swiss reject US extradition request" (article here).

Through the magic of Google translate, I provide a sentence for the German speaking section of Switzerland, and the same sentence for the French speaking section near Geneva. Maybe Polanski uttered one or the other.

Ich dachte wirklich, dass sie über achtzehn Jahre alt war!

J'ai vraiment pensé qu'elle était plus dix-huit ans!

(I really thought she was over 18 years old!)

I know, not funny; though, of course, neither are Polanski's actions.

Dog the bounty hunter should go and extradite him to the US. He did a great job with the Max Factor scumbag.

Polanski is old, a few punches to the face and a little opium will make him very compliant with stuffing into a trunk.

So long as he stays out of the US, he will not be having sex with any American teenagers, which is what you want to prevent.
Why waste large sums of money on dragging him back to the USA?

There are many more productive things that taxpayers' money could be spent on.

The French should read:

"J'ai vraiment pense qu'elle avait plus que dix-huit ans."
