Unfortunately, this talented musical genius in his later years became just as infamous for his inappropriate, appalling, disgusting, antics with young children as he did for his music.

Due to the fact that MJ was 99% plastic, he will be melted down into lego blocks so that little kids can play with HIM for a change!

Makes sense of it? Are you friggin kidding me? If it's your own child that's one thing, but other people's children? What sense can you possibly make about having another person's child in your bed other than it being sexual?
LRM, I usually agree with you on most posts and I also agree with you on these comments about questioning how can a grown man have sleepovers with other people's children? It's unthinkable to me but at the same time, what parent in their right mind would allow their child to spend the night ALONE at a grown man's house other than a relative???

Whether or not the 93' & 03' allegations made against him were true or false (one settled out of court and the other he was acquitted - if I remember correctly) the mere thought of a strange man WHOEVER he might be opening up his house to children for an overnight visit is grotesque and vial, but with that said, any parent giving permission for their child to stay overnight at a strangers house is just as grotesque and vial to me.

Agreed. But a separate issue. The fact that parents were irresponsible does not excuse the actions of this grown man.

Oh, no question the parent's bear some responsibility. The one settled out of court was a payoff, they dropped the charges for an "Undesclosed amount" in my mind, call me old school, if you're not guilty, you go to court and fight the charges, not pay hush funds. In the other he was acquitted, with the help of the best layers that money can buy - I think half were the same team that got OJ acquitted. Hardly makes me think he was innocent.

I didn't say his actions should be excused and I don't believe they were excused.

I don't know if he did or didn't molest those children, but his willingness to open his house to children is beyond inappropriate in itself.

The first attempt to sue & file charges against him settled out of court. I don't know about you, but if my child claimed that he/she had been been "molested" in anyway shape or form, as a parent, I wouldn't rest until I saw justice which to me would not have been to settle out of court for any amount of money. I would not rest until I saw my child's perpetrator rot away in jail - but that is just me.

The second string of allegations and lawsuits - he was acquitted which means he wasn't found guilty. Again, in my eyes that doesn't make him innocent, but we will probably never know the truth. I think he was guilty of something but as to how henious of a crime, I really don't know.

If these parents didn't allow their children to go over to his house to begin with, was MJ the kind of sicko that would go out & seek little children to molest? I don't know the answer to that question either. He was obviously emotionally disturbed but he settled out of court on one occasion & was acquitted on another occasion.

Besides being known as the "king of pop" he is also is taking the stigma of being a child molester to his grave.

Your memory is correct. I would like to use words rumored to have been uttered by Freud, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." He was a simple caring man, with true Platonic affection for children. I worked with him twice, once when he was 12, and later after the "Thriller" era. The man could sing and dance with emotions that were electric. There was scant difference in him between 12 and 35. I mean his manners, his affection for people, his feeling of duty to his fans were remarkable for an artist of his standing.

What happened to Michael was a group of vultures after his money used the paranoia of the public that strange men are looking to commit lewd acts. In the first case he followed advice of lawyers, and paid to make the allegations go away. In the second case he fought back and won, because he did nothing wrong.

Prayers for his family.

I agree with you about the attorney thing....

I also agree to a certain extent with you about if you're not guilty you go to court...... and it's so not like me to play devil's advocate but with that said, if my kid claimed to be molested and I thought that they were, you could throw all the money in the world at me and I still wouldn't settle. The term "hush money" wouldn't exist in my vocabulary.

I would make that person's life a living hell, every day, every second, every minute of their life. The monster that did that to my child would regret the day they were born.

Actually I agree with you 100%.

I'm sorry, but I don't buy the "he was a child trapped in a man's body" crap.

No one is the isolated or that stupid.
