Should Gary Glitter Die?

It was being reported earlier today that the aged rocker and paedophile could face the death penalty for child rape after he had underage sex with girls in Vietnam. Maybe wishful thinking for some.

I heard that he had the permission to do an 12 year old before he was arrested.

I think this person should die.

A bullet in the head would be a far cheaper alternative than another twenty years of a whole team of medical experts sitting down and asking him about whether his father whipped him as a child, and asking how he felt about some ink smudges.

This is going to cost the British people millions if he is extradited - i sincerely hope he is tried and convicted in Thailand. He'll probably topp himself before the Thai police get their way, but you can bet he's having a lovely time in a Bangkok jail.

He should be deported back to the UK and prosecuted here under our sex tourism laws. Britain should clean up its own mess in this respect if the Vietnamese are agreeable to it.

I can't see it going to a child rape charge due to the circumstances. It wasn't a case of abducting a child off the street so underage sex is a more likely charge against him.

Being a nonce in a British prison (convicted child abuser) is no holiday. He may survive a sentence but he won't be pretty if and when he comes out....

For crimes against music - yes  Wink



Seriously, whatever the law of that land is is what he should be prosecuted under. If that means death for what he did, then that's the law and it has to be respected. although i suspect it'll end up as consentual with an underage minor rather than child rape. i can't see the firing squad happen - but it makes for a good tabloid shock.

In the UK in the circumstances this is child rape, you dont need to abduct to get a charge of rape.

He might deserve to die but if you don't have the death penalty for murder then unfortunately you can't sanction it for what he did.

A more fitting punishment is cutting his balls off. He would still be attracted to children but wouldn't be able to do anything about it. Psycological punishment like that will last until he is dead.

And even more controversial than the death penalty. Quite barbaric. As are his actions, but two wrongs do not make a right.

No, throw the creep into prison and accidently-on-purpose allow the 'law of the jungle' do its work.

If I am correct, Glitter has several convictions for sexual crimes in the UK. It's a shame that we cannot find some way to physiclly alter people like him with a drug or treatment (like a sexual lobotamy) that would end those beheavors forever. So he went too far in the wrong place and faces a possible death penalty. While sad in one way, he had to know what he was doing was wrong by any standard of moralty and will have to face a horrible price for it.

Isn't it interesting that after his british legal troubles, he goes to Cuba, Vietnam, and Thailand - all countries that have known problems with child prostitution.

The guy is a sick bastard, and if the Vietnamese court decides he should die, I have no problems with it.

Pedophelia is a sickness. And pedophiles should be locked away and get help while they are locked in. And if they commit the same crime again when they come out they should definatly be castrated.

I'm not defending them at all. But what about rapists? They have ruined lives too. That means that they should get executed as well.
What I would love to see is that they really get their ass whopped and locked up afterwards.

Maybe the CIA smuggled him into Vietnam from Bangkok? Seriously, great zinger!

Personally, I have no use for pedophiles - they are below low. My only problem with hime getting a death sentence for this(if convicted of course) is that we don't have a similar tool available here. Of course the worst cases do tend to get sorted out in prison - even hardened criminals have standards that are offended by pedophiles and they're not so gentle in demonstrating what they think, i.e. Dahmer got his.
