    The other actor recently arrested for this sort of thing was Jeffrey Jones. He played the husband and father in "Beetlejuice" and - more importantly - you all will know him forever as the principal in "Ferris Bueller".



    The red-haired guy, forever trying to nail Ferris.



    Uh, wait...that came out wrong.

    Artman, are you saying that they ( the "rags") should have ignored the story, which must have come to them from the police ? That would have been really fine journalism wouldn't it ?, especially as Townsend admits that the facts are correct.

    T.I why " alas" ?

    Some of my gripes: public transport (but wait, the congestion charge will solve these problems, no? Well, no.)... the NHS... schooling... Ken Livingstone... the cost of living (rents and property in particular)...



    Even T.V. is not as good as it used to be, but I guess that applies to the whole of the U.K.



    End of rant. Sorry. No, not really.



    The press is good though. Best there is



    Are you a born and bred Londoner, Alex London?

    No, born and bred Bristolian, but i moved to London to 14 years ago . i don't see it as a dump,yeah it's pricey for some things, not for others. I didn't vote for ken but that's democracy. I had ( free ) open -heart surgery 3 years ago from the NHS so you ain't going to get me to criticise that org. - oh and my wife is a Consultant Paediatrician so it pays the bills too.

    Even if you believe that research bullshite excuse, at best he is still helping to subsidize the bastards who do this shit to kids. If anything that ought to make people even more skeptical of his claims, if he really were against child pornography he wouldnt be paying off those who are making a profit off of it. He is a retard and a morally repugnant embarrassment ot humanity any way you slice it.

    Yeah me too!



    Any way, I'm off to The Abbey with a sawn-off to research blaggin'. I might follow that by 'researching' driving very fast and hopping onto planes to Spain.

    On topic , the London evening paper had 'Cops swoop on Who Star' as it's front page tonight, 12 police raided his house and took him away for questioning. Or so i gathered by staring at people on the underground an hour ago.

    Sorry to be O.T but to answer T.I - little things like food, gear (I'm a muso) and drugs (I'm a muso).( Class C only -promise) Beer prices in our dwindling stock of pubs on the other hand and house and rent costs I agree with you. Dump-NO

    More off-topic stuff. Sorry.

    <strong>...to answer T.I - little things like food... </strong><hr></blockquote>Food? You gotta be kidding. That's the worst example you could have given. Have you ever shopped for food in Germany or Switzerland? I have. Extensively, and it does not bear comparing. Especially not with Switzerland. The supermarkets here are a cartel. Different names, but there is no competition. Just wait until Safeway gets taken over.



    And don't get me started on restaurants. Well all right then, you twisted my arm



    Went to the OXO Tower last week on an invite. £40 a head with one (indifferent) bottle of wine between 6 people. I spent the same amount a few weeks ago in an "exclusive" restaurant in Zermatt, Switzerland, with some English friends. We all had lamb, the speciality of the house,and the best I have ever had. And when we left, we were all pretty pie-eyed. Plenty of wine, brandy on the house, that sort of thing. As we left we were debating how much one would have had to spend for that kind of evening in good old London. I forget what sum we arrrived at. To sum up, the Swiss experience was/is worth repeating, the London one not. Kinda ironic, considering that most people in the U.K. think that Switzerland is expensive.

    WAY back on topic:



    Just saw the TV of his computer setup being loaded into the back of a police car on BBC News. If you can get BBC World have a look.



    Nice QuickSilver G4 and a BW G3 nicely wrapped up in huge Police evidence bags.



    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew.

    Probably many of us have done our own, uh, research on the internet. What happens if you click on a child porn link in your surfing? Can you really be arrested?



    It just seems that ruining your life by clicking on a link is awfully harsh.



    I understand that he apparently paid for access, so it went further than just clicking on a link. But theoretically, you could be arrested for it, right?

    the same way you can accidentally click on a billion porn sites?



    i tend to think the media is making a bigger deal out of this and some are biting the bait while others are waiting to see what happens.

    yes and after he "accidentally" clicked on the link, his wallet "accidentally" fell out of his trousers, and he "accidentally" keyed in his credit card number.

    i guess that the hyptnotised do occasionally lie. (to themselves)

    how long has it been since he's done his "research" and how many more children has this website exploited when they should have been reported and shut down. these are questions that he'll have to answer to his public.

What if someone is looking at porn sites - yes they're a bad bad person, but not a criminal. Then a link on one of the pages says <a href="http://www.gop.com"; target="_blank">click here for more porn</a>*, you click it, and it's an illegal child porn site. You're not a child porn lover, just a typical male internet porn surfer. Should you go to prison?



    *No, that's not a child porn site. But what if it was, and what if you just clicked on it impusively to see what I was talking about?

    he doesnt have to answer anything to "his public"... he has to answer to the police and from the looks of it he has willingly obliged to all their demands. definitely doesnt apear he is trying to cover anything up.



    its people like you who are trying to blow things out of proportion and jump the gun

    so i imagine this is how the conversation went with the police.

    police: "and after you came across this site what did you do?......did you report it to authorities?"

    pete: "no actually, i got out my wallet...."



    as for answering to his public he's said he's afraid this might ruin his career, so yes, he does have to answer to his public, what do you think his explanation that he's writing a book is? he said it to the press not to the police in private, the answering to his public has already begun and he is in deep, in a bad way. it's ILLEGAL, and he's admitted to it.

    this is bad juju my friend, and pete has got a LOT of explaining to do. even if his rationale is true.

    But he also said that if he had to give up music to continue fighting this it would be more than worthwhile.

    the bottom line is he knew of a site where children were being exploited and didn't report it......what is so hard to understand?
