  • Bee-Gees and sexual child abuse

    Im increadibly mad about the recent incident about the member of the Bee-Gees having visited certain illegal sites for sopposed 'Research'. i think his whole excuse is a load of crap. me myself being not of voting age, i find anything remotely close to this sort of thing an outrage!

    Actually it was Pete Townsend from The Who who was arrested for child porn.
    Morris Gibb died the other day from complications from some surgical procedure or other.
    Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

        Im sorry, I ment townsend, I guess I didnt want to realize that a member of The Who would do something like that, I liked The Who, but I guess now, I'll just have to listen to The Doors (whom i like better anyway).

            Don't see anybody jumping down your throat about your post.If your refering to Headshot i think thats just his lovable way of letting you know he cares

            Townsends excuse that he was doing research into that stuff is pretty weak.I don't know...i mean i like the Whos music but after this revelation...i don't think i could listen to any of their songs with out thinking about this charge.

              I was bothered to learn of the passing of Maurice Gibbs. The Bee Gees were a great band. As I continue to rebel against the modern crap being pumped out by the ton, I turned to groups like the Bee Gees to enlighten my ears.

              Unfortunately, the family seems to be dealing with their grief by exporting anger. They are looking into why things turned out they way they did. It's not uncommon, and one should always review events like this. Yet, I believe making others feel your pain is not the best route to go. Things happen. I've seen people who appear to be in good health just drop dead. When it's your time to go, that it.

              As for this Townsend character, if he was doing research I'm certain law enforcement would have discovered his hypothesis and work to confirm or disprove it. However, I doubt that was the case. He needs to check himself into a hospital so they can replace the screws he clearly lost. Or better yet, stick him in a prison where he can be exploited and abused for someone else's pleasure.

              That's just my opinion of course

                  Your faith in the righteousness, or infallibilty, of the law enforcement community seems to be a bit misplaced to me. All it takes is getting directed to a website to have your presence tracked. It certainly isn't inconceivable that the FBI hacked into, and planted web bugs on several pedophile sites, or even created some of their own sites, with the purpose of trapping those who might choose that particular lifestyle. Especially given the scope of the investigations. It seemed like a rather large sting operation.

                  I prefer to consider Pete innocent, until proven guilty.

                    There's no maybe about it, the FBI and InterPol have taken over and operated large kiddieporn sites for extended periods of time. After several months they'd shut the site down and make thousands of simultainious arrests.

                      What I meant by that was Townsend would have records on his PC or in his home confirming some kind of project into this matter.

                      As for Kiddy porn sites run by police, yes, I know they do. However, Townsend paid to enter this site. So even if they spammed him, he still had an option to back away. I've run into one or kiddy sites on the Internet and promptly reported them to the proper authorities. Clicking on the site could be just a simple mistake. Paying to view the site is clearly criminal. It doesn't matter who's running the site.

                        I think that once you agree to give your credit card number then you have no excuse. If you enter sites like those by accident then you do what any other sane or decent person would do and get right out!

                        But the police running these sites.....like why? And where's the evidence to back claims like that up?

                        There are evil people like that in Ireland too...sad to relate.

                          I have two daughters of my own (6 and 10), so understand that I'm just playing the Devil's Advocate here...

                          Why is simply viewing the site necessarily criminal? Doesn't prurient intent factor in here? Else, how are such social deviations from the norm studied, categorized, legislated against? Out of ignorance and innuendo?

                          Or, is this another case of "I can't define pornography, but I know it when I see it."?

                          Do sociologists/psychiatrists/psychologists get special exemptions to go into such sites? Do the police? What gives such people "rights" to study this, yet makes others criminal?

                            You know JAMiAM I never looked at it that way. You might have a point. I just tend turn quite defensive when it comes to kids. I recall one recent Kiddy Porn bus where people could order up special tapes. Some just wanted to see a child beng beaten. I also fear that some people who see this eventually want to go out for the real and that's how a child is kidnapped.

                            I simply failed to look at the situation from all perspectives. I'm a strong supporter of 1st Ammendment rights. I'm just not comfortable with some jerk raping a 3yr old for he and his pals to get their jolly. However, it is more important to go after those creating the material than anything else. (I'm in a gray area on computer generated images.)

                              ive just got one question, is there a small political aspect that i havent cought. Because the UK has very strict laws against such things as this. And i do agree that his cover is not very well thought up, he did pay for it and there is no way he could have gotten it legaly anyway.
