    Gary Glitter paid $2,000

    . . . To the families of those who accused him.

    i do wish this well-known (in Britain) wealthy western sex-tourist would have been shown to be punished.

    unfortunately, this only helps the sex industry in these poor countries.

    he should never have been allowed to travel overseas after being caught with downloaded child torture (young children photographed being raped and tortured) in the first place.

    Former singer Gary Glitter paid $2,000 (1,150) each to the families of two Vietnamese girls he is accused of sexually abusing, his lawyer has said.

    The money was paid two weeks ago "for co-operation" in the upcoming legal case, Le Thanh Kinh said.

    He disgusts me . . . a firing squad would have been too good for him.

    i so hope no one listens to his music anymore.

    I didn't know anyone listened to his music now?

    I'm glad he's going to trial - finally.

    If this doesn't spell out "guilty as sin", I don't know what will.
    However, Glitter might very well find himself dealing with one of the old-line judges who fought as VC and has a very dim view of Westerners in general, and his type in particular.
    "Charlie don't surf", indeed.

    It has been a tradition for many MANY years. Trust me...no one is thinking of the loser when they are either dancing or playing that song. That is one of the first songs we learned to play when we got into the high school marching band.

    Me, too! I go to a lot of games and you're right, this loser doesn't cross my mind at all when I hear the song, I was just pointing out that his music is played.

    Oh...I knew you were. I always think back to my high school band days when I hear the song.

    Glitter jailed for abusing girls

    In addition to the prison sentence, Glitter has been ordered to pay 5m Vietnamese dong (180/$315) to his victims' families.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4769164.stm

    So Glitter remains in Jail for the time being. not a long enough sentence IMO, but there you have it.

    i fully expect he'll be able to buy his way out far sooner than the three years is up.

    altho i am impressed by the swiftness of the trial.

    Is he a friend of MJ? yes, i hope it gives MJ the jitters.

    i'm hoping countries in the far east will take note and start clamping down on sex tourism.

    Rock and Roll (Part 2) is a perennially popular stadium anthem at sports events, particularly in the United States

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Glitter

    Gary Glitter will/has received royalties every time this is played in stadiums. i urge you to insist it's no longer played in stadiums because this is what funds/has funded his lifestyle.

    Glitter found guilty and will spend 3 years in prison. If he's a good boy, he'll get out earlier.
