Brown's Glitter Fury

British rocker IAN BROWN is furious disgraced star GARY GLITTER got the same prison sentence for downloading child pornography as he did for threatening an air stewardess. The former THE STONE ROSES frontman spent four months "scrubbing landings" behind bars in 1998, and he is amazed he had to share the same fate as Glitter, who was sent down for a very different crime in 1999. He says, "I went away for saying words, yet I got the same sentence as Gary Glitter, who'd downloaded 4,000 disgusting images. "I was there scrubbing landings with people who'd burgled old ladies' houses. "I was like, 'Get f**king scrubbing, you deserve it.' But I wasn't there to do any scrubbing." Glitter, real name PAUL FRANCIS GADD, was sentenced to three years in jail in Vietnam last week (03MAR06) after being found guilty of sexually abusing two young girls.

I fully agree with you.I will also add what you did was silly and no doubt you are remorsefull and regret the incident and crime commited.We all do silly things from time to time.Its likely because politically in a judges view you threatened an airline employee with what happened 9/11 its likely you were made an example of to deter others from air abuse rage or whatever you did but agree with ref to Gary Glitter,i was sexually abused at 3/4 year old over a 3 month period now at 38 my head is so messed up some days i wonder why and if this life and world is worth living in.The torment after abuse is difficult to put into words but it affects you for the rest of your life and you feel an odd type of person who hides away in shame and feel a week person,Glitter should have had 30 years for his perverted behavior with an alternative of his sexual organs being removed.I fully agree with your claim and support it fully.The difference in the crimes are so significant yet both where given 3 years.Its about time the justice system in the world took a harsh view and looked these people up for life,paedophiles commit these crimes all there life and its like leaving a rat in charge of a cheese larder.They go on on on on doing it to child after child.They say its an illness?,your crime on the other hand i suspect was no more than an impulsive fit of bad temper?,compare the two crimes and the two sentences and surely anyone can see you were simply a victim of political mumbo jumbo and simply made an example of.Anyone boarding a plane and walking to there seats if your dressed a bit loud or famous or outrageous in some way simply turn round quick bet you catch these trolley dollies speaking about you!!!!!!!!!!
