Re: Michael Jackson
:doze: Well, this Michael Jackson case that’s been going on for ages now is really beginning to tire me. I found a very sound comment about it on fark.com (of all places!):
We (sic) can’t both parts meet in the middle:
1. MJ and Co. agree that he molested the kid and is sent to jail.
2. Kid’s mom agrees that they were conspiring to get money from wacko-jacko and that she knowingly sent him to neverland. She is awarded nothing, except jail time for child endangering.
3. MJ agrees to pay damages to kid. Money is never to be touched by Kid’s Mom and is put in a trustfund for living expenses/education until kid is of age. Kid is placed in a foster home and parents are given partial visitation rights.
4. MJ becomes a registered sex offender and is forbidden from approaching anybody under 18 without supervision, video surveillance and a Hannibal Lecter restraining suit.
Dang, I should go into law.
I have to agree with “casanuda” who posted this the other day. I think that he has come awfully close to the truth in this matter. There are too many things that point towards Michael Jackson being somewhat “unnaturally” attracted to young boys. However, there is also very much that points towards the fact that the family of the accuser (Gavin Arvizo for you who *still* think his name is protected by law or something) is a greedy bunch of rednecks, who willingly have put their children into the hands of Michael Jackson, solely to profit off a lawsuit.
Anyway, it’s a crying shame that such a talented songwriter and artist like Jackson has fallen this far down from his place at the very top of the entertainment industry some 15 years ago. Anyone who remembers “Thriller” and “Bad” knows that he was one of the best, if not THE best, artists in the world. What went wrong? What caused you to jump the shark and join the circus, Michael? 😥
