Children's Group Demands Pete Townsend Be Treated as Sex Offender

In the theatre of the absurd:

Anti-child abuse campaigners are demanding that rock star Pete Townshend be treated as a sex offender when he plays at next year's Superbowl concert in America. They want the guitarist of The Who to provide DNA samples and fingerprints and to pose for a police mug shot before being allowed to perform during the half-time show of America's biggest sporting event.

Townshend was never prosecuted after his 2003 arrest for accessing child p*rn on his home computer. He agreed to be placed on the sex offender registry for five years but insisted he wasn't guilty and had been doing research.

The group is Protect Our Children. Who will protect the rest of us from them?
