Ok, I'll settle this: We`ll send "Breezy" to The Wall. There all of your crimes are forgiven and he`d get all the outdoors time he needs, provided he doesn`t mind a bit of cold.
Yes. that would be fair. first off... no one is ENTITLED to anything. second... we are all responsible for our own choices and actions, some of those actions (in particular actions that hurt others) have consequences, some of which may or may not include public ostracizing . the solution to such "unfairness" is pretty simple. don't hurt others. and it`s not a "denial" of privilege; choosing not to support someone after they have done something so terrible is as much a "right" as it is for said offender to "earn a living."
Not allowed? Of course he's allowed to earn a living, just like you and me. Criticism is not censorship. I`m sure he has made a shed-load of money over the years, so welfare and turning to crime would hardly make him society`s victim.
What about Gary Glitter? Now there is someone who has really been denied the right to make a living in his chosen field. OK, raping kids is pretty crappy, but do we really want to end his career just because we disaprove of some things he has done in his personal life?
Just because someone has shown themselve to be be fair loathsome as a person, should they be deprived of privilege, toadies and entitlement? Is that fair?
