Now, maybe I'm missing something here, but why all the support for him, and outrage that he might be extradited to the US? Surely, he's a fugitive from sentencing and deserves his punishment. After all, he had sex with a 13-year-old; thus is a paedophile, no? I didn't see people rallying round Gary Glitter.

I think this has less to do with him and more to do with the unfair extradition laws operated by the US. Where the US has pretty much free claim in many countries to extradite foreign citizens and ex nations and yet many countries do not have the same right in return for those situated in the US. It wouldn't surprise me if there was a political undercurrent to all this. That being said if the evidence is there then this should be a open and shut case, indeed he should be extradited, it's easier however to jump on a case like this then it is for foreign nationals suspected of terrorism. Even though i feel they have more of a case to angry about these laws and i feel the US truly has no leg to stand on, treaties or not.
My 2 cents.

-Yeah, one of them involves a large amount of physical and psychological pain and the other's war.

Does the victims voice have no say in this matter? She wishes that the charges be dropped, has reached a settlement with the guy...
