    You remember Thomas Brodnicki, right? The guy who allegedly confided in his shrink and shared that he's had many conversations with God about killing Selena Gomez.

    Well, a Los Angeles judge has dismissed the stalking charge against the 46-year-old Illinois man. 

    And that's not all...

    The prosecutors were given a chance to supply sufficient evidence to the judge, but failed to do so, which means Brodnicki—who does have a temporary restraining order in place keeping him 100 yards away from Gomez—has been released. Yeah, WTF is right.

    A hearing on whether that order should be made permanent will be held on Nov. 23 at a Burbank courthouse.
