Thread Name: BS: Pete Townshend a Child Fondler?
Subject: RE: BS: Pete Townshend a Child Fondler?
From my count, Townsend has claimed to have viewed child pornography online numerous times, not just the one time he is currently claiming.
In the article cited above, he says he "accidently" stumbled across child pornography while looking for something else. In his news accounts (both his written statement to the press, and his press conference) he says that he first came across child pornography while surfing the web with his 16 year old son. He also has said in the past week, that he only went to the site he was presumably arrested for entering his credit card number into once, "for research" for his supposed autobiography he has been working on for seven years.
That tallies up to at least three times, in three different circumstances, two of which were not the offense he is purportedly being investigated for as part of Operation Ore.
At some point, one must say to ones' self, perhaps this is a bit too many "innocent coincidences" to be credible.
