People are getting old and looking for a way to get into that place called Heaven. Trying to make up for their past mistakes taking down anybody but themselves in their perfect getting old world

Question about laws on the other side of the pond.

When these charges are laid, are they using current law or do they use the law that was on the books when the offense occurred?

What about punishment? Use the punishment that was on the books at the time or does it use todays punishments (prison time / fines / what have you).

That I don't know.

I know nothing about law, English or otherwise.

What I do know is that RH is probably kicking himself that he doesn't live Stateside.

He could have challenged the evidence against him without budging an inch from his home, and the extradition request could easily have been turned down.

And so - no court case (which, at age 72, will doubtless reduce his limited time left on planet Earth).

If all the paedophiles of the world were to stand trial in sequence, we'd be running court cases 'til the Sun supernovas.

Classic deflection tactics.

I don't want to sound if I'm excusing or condoning what these people have done but it seems to me they are offering up a few doddery old men as sacrificial lambs in an effort to distract attention away from something else.

The 72-year-old performer of Rossmore, near Clonakilty, Co Cork, in the Republic of Ireland, faces nine charges, including two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl aged under 13.

Still, anyone can tell a 13 year old is under the age of consent - the scumbag deserves all he get's.
I have no sympathy for any nonce.

That "something else" was when the Muslims being caught out going after the white teenage girls in the North of England care homes, police and social services were doing nothing to protect these girls, and the council leaders were actually covering this up. Then all of sudden the focus switches to those doddery old pop stars :

Jimmy page dated 14-year old Lori Maddox while in Zeppelin.

Jimmy Page

As for Roy Harper it seems one of these groupies from 40 years ago sees an opportunity by bringing up what may be deemed inappropriate behavior at the time. Underage teenage girls and rock bands were the norm in the 70s. It's despicable behavior in any decade, but that's how it was back then.

As for Pete Townshend, his excuse was that he was doing research for a book he was writing. He used a credit card to access a website with child porn images. Stupid or legitimate? Who knows, as a major Who fan it cast a major "WTF?" shadow on him in my eyes. Some info on that story:

Pete Townshend

The rockstar hedonistic lifestyle at the time was like the debauchery in the Roman Empire. Adult women groupies were no challenge to these "gods", so they in many cases went after these children with adult bodies. Some were able to make "legitimate" women out of them eventually like Bill Wyman (Woody Allen?) versus tanking their careers. They acted quickly, unlike these scenarios where the child girlfriend of the past comes looking for some money.

Jimmy Page is a known pedophile.
Lori Maddox was his 14 year old girlfriend led-zeppelin-19691231

Jimmy Page wrote a song called "hats off to roy harper" Roy harper sung the Pink Floyd Song "have a cigar"

Here is a great article on the fact that they were all out of their minds in zeppelin:

The lyrics to Sick again:

From the window of your rented limousine, I saw your pretty blue eyes
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen, Painted lady in the city of lies.

Oh, do you know my name? Do I look the same
You know I'm the one you want. I must be the one you need, yeah

Clutching pages from your teenage dream In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
Through the circus of the L.A. queens. How fast your learn the downhill side

Oh, do you know my name? Do I look the same
You know I'm the one you want. I must be the one you need,.

Lips like cherries and the brow of a queen, Come on, flash it in my eyes
Said you dug me since you were thirteen,Then you giggle as you heave and sigh...

America has a big problem with this as well...We have camps that imprison women and children for nothing more than sex. They are called Mormons.

So ... Who's going to the World Cup this year? That might be how to find the ones in power who are "indulging" in our societies right now.

lol I was just going to say when are they arresting Jimmy Page for Lori Maddox? But someone beat me to it.

This sort of thing turns my stomach...

I mean, to me I cannot think of something more abhorrent than what these people did or do. Seriously it just strikes me as the most appalling 'secret' you can harbour and one that should fill someone's soul with shame and guilt.

Yet the more we hear about it, the more it appears it was a club. A god damned club where these people looked out for each other. They secreted children into each others homes and places of work and the more disgusting of them, paraded them on national public television, all the while knowing that they were evil sick scum, but smiling about it.

I just cannot even put my mind into that sort of mindset and not feel instant nausea.

It's like Rosemary's Baby in reality... the sick freaks are all around you and only when you look, do you see how little you can do about it.. token arrests do nothing. like picking off guards at the castlepalace, you never get inside where the real targets hide.

Almost right wino. I'm giving you an A- because you made one mistake. Please try harder next time.

Back on topic.
Has anyone compiled a list of all the offenders that have been outed during the last....ten years? I bet a complete list just might reveal some interesting details!!

Maybe some politicians will at least be questioned,

Ex Tory Cabinet minister 'caught on camera at child sex party' 7 Dec 2013 22:30 The video, along with several photographs, allegedly places the ex-MP, a household name, at a depraved orgy organised by a paedophile Check out all the latest News, Sport & Celeb gossip at Follow us: @DailyMirror on Twitter | DailyMirror on Facebook

Apparently the police had evidence in 1986 and did nothing. The sex offender who organised these parties is apparently Sidney Cooke who murdered one of his victims. His parties were reportedly attended by Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith aswell as this still living ex-tory. It looks like pretty damning evidence, Mp's at orgies with a child murderer but then again things have a habit of getting covered up.

I believe her name was Pamela Debarres. She wrote the book, "I'm with the band". Besides sleeping (well, not really sleeping, but...) with a who's who of musical icons, she also was Frank Zappa's nanny. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

When 13 year old girls are throwing their knickers up on stage, is it any surprise that these idiots with their god complexes are going to take full advantage of that fact ?!

It still goes on today, nevermind just the 60's and 70's.

And so long as their are tweens willing to jump between the sheets with these so-called "gods", there will be grown men standing in line happily obliging their delusional fantasy.

It's considered to be one of the "perks" of being rich and famous.

That's only because of one thing. Trials are as efficient as a hummer with cement tires. But I get you homeboy. I like teenage girls too.

I started reading a book about Led Zepellin and in it, it alluded to the fact that Jimmy Page would only go after 14 year olds. I stopped reading it when I found this out, it really made me sick.

I guess all these guys from the 70's were part of a club, but it stretches far wider than celebrities. Politicians, business men and some top police officers have been linked to these terrible acts.

It appears they are willing to sacrifice some celebrities in order to protect the truth from ever being fully exposed.

14 is a year and some days away from being age of consent (in UK), and I thought the Lori Maddox thing was kinda well known. At least as a big Zeppelin fan I was aware of it.

Not to defend these guys, but it WAS a different time. Going WAY back for a minute, remember Romeo and Juliet were also 14 and 13. With every passing decade it seems people become more immature well into their 20's or even 30's, so our modern perception of what is a child is MUCH different than even 50years ago.

Add that girls routinely lie about their age and can look older if they try. My own sister was out getting served liquor when she was 15 with a fake ID (her mother knew and didn't even take it from her). The other night I was having hibachi and a group at our table had a birthday. The chef asked the girl how old she was and she said 10, he was like WHAT?? And asked her to stand up. She was easily 5ft9 and 180lbs. Looked about 15 or 16.... I kinda laughed and looked at my wife saying "bovine growth hormone?" (it's in milk).

Again not to legitimize these guys, but I think they would do better focusing on the pre-pubescent kiddy fiddlers. Hollywood is apparently rife with it also, as exposed by many (most recently I recall Corey Feldman writing about it).

--Isn't there are statute of limitations for this kind of stuff in England?

--How could they possibly prove the charges 40 years later?

So in the '60s and '70s you had a bunch of rich, horny young guys mixing it up with a bunch of horny young girls who literally threw themselves at the lads. Who was exploiting who? Read some of the biographies of the rock stars. This stuff went on openly. If it wasn't a criminal matter back then, why should it be a criminal matter now?

They even made movies about it:

Elvis started dating Priscilla when she was 14.
(According to one account, they were only married because her father threatened to have Elvis charged under the Mann Act; "taking a minor across state lines for sexual purposes")

Jerry Lee Lewis married his first cousin when she was 13.

Chuck Berry was arrested under the Mann Act for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl whom he had transported over state lines. "Sweet Little Sixteen" indeed!

Face it, being a rock star has certain perks. Does it ever!!


IMO this has more to do with police-state fear-ism than any real criminal issue.
