    I love the man because he has a heart as well as being a good singer/dancer. Allthough songs like Billie Jean attracted me to like him and the music I absolutely love songs that talk about the way the standards of life are constantly decreasing. Man in the mirror, Earth Song and Heal the World are a few.


    Although I do not know everything about the child molestation issue my gut instinct says no it is not true. Yes the fact he slept with kids is not exactly the norm but I do believe his heart was in the right place. Some of the kids who had the opportunity to visit Neverland were disadvantaged and its possible some did not get the love and attention in their own homes from their own families. In the Martin Bashir interview he defends this statement and sounds pretty genuine to me.

    Sadly there are people out there who would happily take advantage of the situation and make a lot of money from taking MJ to court.

    Also mentally MJ is a child at heart himself due to the fact he never really got the chance to have that part of his life to actually be a child. It is nicknamed Peter Pan syndrome by some medical professionals.

    What did this family ever do to you in the first place? All they ever did was provide world class entertainment. They never took away from anybody. They instead gave. I am in no way a Jackson family fan or support all the not so nice things that happened. However, you should instead focus on bringing about the change in this world that you would like to see. No matter how you look at this, for better or worse, let the man rest in peace while you should focus on bringing peace to modern America.

    By the way, Michael Jackson was literally one of America's famous and greatest ambassadors. What did you do for America recently?

    Why don't I see anybody questioning as to why his father got away with being an abusive parent? Oh that's right, they were rich and eccentric.>>

    I always thought it was innocent until proven guilty too...but I digress.

    MJ obviously had serious mental issues. It's funny how your status in society determines how people look at you. If he was poor, he would have been locked up. Middle class (with good health care coverage) he would have been placed on disability and sent to therapy. Rich and famous - he's just eccentric. >>
    >>
    I surely do not condone a grown man sleeping in the same bed as a child, but do you believe that this guy had a clue as to what is right and wrong? The guy lived in an isolated bubble compounded by the fact that he was completely nuts. Now we add pills to the mix...>>

    The hypocrisy with his death is awesome...artists who would have nothing to do with him while he was alive came out in droves to memorialize him....awesome.
    Find me one part where i say i love him

    Im not a MJ supporter, dont even get me started, i just find it terribly amusing that you guys have decided hes wrong when your best prosecutors cant convince a 12 person jury that its the case. Im not saying hes not guilty because im a fan of his, Im saying hes not guilty because after several months of trials he got found not guilty by people who have SEEN the evidence. Like i said, have you got any damning evidence that was made inadmissable in his trial? otherwise, hell, all you've got is him saying, yeah ive been in a bed with a child, Ive been in my bed with many girls, and no i havent slept with them all. (how i wish though )

    And plenty of people settle things out of court, just because its easier. Many doctors do it to avoid the expense and publicity of a trial with regards to malpractice, in civil suits the burden of proof is lower.

    All im sticking up for here is YOUR justice system which is founded on the idea that you are INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.

    You guys always go on about how great your country is, yet you give up some of the founding ideas of your country as soon as its not convenient to you.

    Im pretty damn sure if MJ's defense lawyers managed to suppress some evidence that would have got him convicted we would have all heard about it. But i havent heard of such evidence have you? If you havent, what do you know that none of us do know which makes you so sure he did it?

    And dont give me this reasonable doubt bullshit, reasonable doubt can occurr for many reasons, one as you mentioned, bad warrant etc, one police didnt investigate a different potential suspect, or holy shit would you believe it, hes innocent.

    You are wrong. Not guilty doesn't mean you are innocent of the charges, it simply means the jury could not convict because the evidence left reasonable doubt of the crime. I served on a jury where we found someone not guilty because the prosecutor couldn't make the case because key evidence was obtained without warrant. We all knew the guy did the crime but you don't convict someone based on a feeling you convict them based on evidence and the evidence wasn't there.

    Let me ask all the Jacko supporters this..simple question. Do you find it a bit odd that Jacko said on TV in a court room that he shared his bed with children? The guy may have been talented and changed the music world but he was disgusting pig.

    The question you are asking Michael Jackson supporters should have been asked at his Memorial in Los Angeles. I do not recall you asking you this question as I did not see you on national TV or hear about you. I strongly suggest that you immediately call local preferrably national Television news networks and schedule some airtime for yourself. Do care to let me know when you have received airtime with CNN, MSNBC and other major networks so that we can all see you on TV asking this question. Please do gladly make use of this once in a lifetime opportunity. My advice to you is to secure as many sponsors as you possibly can for yourself as airtime is very, very expensive.

    I don't know this guy...

    First of all, I don't know this guy but I do know Michael Jackson. I am sure many around the world (which is so bloody out of this world obvious) do not know this guy but they do know Michael Jackson. So when this guy dies, he will not get the same recognition or air time as Michael Jackson.

    This guy is a nobody in front of Michael Jackson. Secondly, he does not know how to sing and dance yet carry himself in a professional or sophisticated manner in front of the camera. The video is itself very low-end class or not professional at all.

    You call this is an American congressman? I thought he was a tourist in a third world country. Seriously.

    No it's not alright. But that does not mean he molested them or did anything wrong with them. Part of the blame lies with the parents. People who allow their children to spend nights with a stranger, don't deserve to be a parent!
