American child abuse campaigners demand Pete Townshend be treated as a sex offender before The Who play at the Superbowl
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. The Protect Our Children group had called for Townshend to be stopped from entering the country because of his 2003 child porn arrest. [...] Florida state law says anyone with a sex offender background must register with police and provide fingerprints, DNA samples and a mugshot.
