Ok so I guess Im the only person who is going to sound racist on this one cause he walked away because he is black. OJ got free from that so did Micheal Jackson. Either that or this shows that if you are famous you can get away with murder..... or child rape.

whether he was proven inocent or not, he put himself in that position, and he will be remembered for it, which is a shame, because he SHOULD be remembered as a musical genius.
Exactly, though he may be "free" now, he has obtained a negatie view to the public, instead of being a best time seller, one of the greatest pop artists/dancers, he is "jacko", who sleeps with children.

He may have a hard time giving his new (hopefully) albumb a good start.

michael jackson..."oh yea he was charged with raping and sleeping with little boys"

right there...degrades the person...therefor ruining their merit even though they were not charged
We still refer to "O.J. Simpson" as "the murderer". lol.

His supposed "skin disease" changed the color of his skin... I don't know if I'd consider him "black" anymore.

They went through alot of crap with the jury, alot more than any other trial has ever received, so all we can do is hope the system worked correctly.

Anybody who brings kids into a secret locked room and gives them alcohol needs to be jailed, beginning and end of story.
I agree. Too bad there wasn't enough proof of that.

Bottom line, Sonic, you basically said you were upset that a more credible group of people didn't step up to bat and put this horrible person away, more or less...and attributed his acquittal entirely to the fact that the people who brought him up on the charge were not credible as a source of such information.

If you believe he did it, that's one thing, come out and say that. But being all condescending about it is just lame. Sorry if the guy bothers you--bottom line is it's a free country, and he can **** up his skin and face all he wants, he can have an amusement park in his backyard, and above all else, what he does with people in his bedroom is between him and those people--who, after all, can refuse such an invitation if they wanted to.

After all...who lets their cancer-suffering son live with America's biggest eccentric who also happens to be a complete stranger...and already has made headlines for supposedly abusing children?

If you ask me the kid was bull****ting from day one and that family were just massive con artists. Familiarize yourselves with the case and you'd know that the evidence has been highly subjective, number one...and number two, that the family of this kid has sued several celebrities for several ridiculous reasons, all to no avail.

They took tons of video tapes from the ranch. None of it was what they were looking for--kiddie porn.

Moreover I would just like to say that the thought of Michael Jackson giving a kid alcohol and porno makes no damned sense. Michael Jackson isn't the kind of guy who goes, "I'll get this kid ****ed up then ask him to suck my ****"...

If you ask me, MJ'd be a lot more likely to tell the kid, "I'll build you a wonderful palace made out of the most lovely stained glass, with holographic rainbows and an animatronic recreation of your favorite dinosaur and/or cartoon character...if you touch my happy pipe."

He also didn't react when they called him not guilty on the counts. To me, if he'd done it, and he'd been guilty and gotten away with it, there would have been something; a smile, a gesture, or whatever. Michael's face was reported as remaining blank and calm throughout the reading. To me that says "I am stone cold innocent and I expected nothing but this result."

Of course they were trying to screw him, though. They had the trial in an uber-conservative area where he would be mostly perceived as a huge freak by way of his lifestyle alone; there were no african american jurors, too, I think. Tom Sneddon has been trying to get MJ for years--since even BEFORE that first incident with the first molestation charge.

In response to the fact there were ten charges...that just shows to me all the more that Tom Sneddon and his entourage were hell bent on milking him for all he was worth. He was charged not just for attempting to molest a child or actually molesting a child, but he was charged for each alleged occasion on which it occured--something which I don't think has been done to some others (the priests of the church), for example. At least, not en masse.

Come on people, do you really believe Michael Jackson held the kids' family PRISONER at the ranch for several months?

Also...if you ask me this isn't even comparable to OJ Simpson (who, if anything, got off due to his celebrity as much as his race, if not moreso). OJ was a jealous and abusive husband, notoriously so, and his wife had repeatedly called the police on him. His wife was also murdered alongside another man. He also 'ran' from the cops (I use the term loosely) and his defense's testimony and case sputtered and chugged along on TV in front of us all. The Michael Jackson case, by comparison, was almost entirely subjective in both accusations and evidence.

I'm glad he was found innocent. I know a bit about putting a spin on things, having worked in a newsroom or two...and that documentary that started all this mess reeked of media skulduggery and bull****. Ask the right questions, the editing room does the rest--nuff said.

Either way, the debate is irrelevant. The jury saw the evidence, the jury heard the testimony, and the jury had a relatively short deliberation time considering the volumes of said evidence and testimony. If you ask me it looked like they were pretty damn sure he was innocent.

Either way it is a sin what's been done to his reputation and his career. Some of Justin Timberlake's hit songs should have been Michael Jackson's ('Cry Me a River' for example...In fact I believe Michael produced it. Even so, listening to that album you can practically hear Michael doing it all, anyhow).

It's a ****ing sin what the media does to that man, plain and simple. I myself have come under scrutiny of a handful of ex-friends over the years who follow my every move--even read this forum, sometimes. I can only imagine what this guy must feel like, the hell he must have to live with on a personal daily basis, with the way his lifestyle gets twisted around by the media and scrutinized under a 1000x microscope by 90% of the free world.

Cut the guy a break. If there had been a doubt in the jury's minds...I'm sure he wouldn't have been found completely innocent. Really, that's the bottom line.

My only reaction to this whole thing is pretty much wishing that when celebrities go on trial that it stay between them, the jury, the judge, and the guys against them. It's as annoying as hell to hear about these celebrity trials and how much people are glad the celebrities are let go, or how much they despise it. Guess how much it changed anybody's life other than his own that Michael was acquitted of all charges? Absolutely nada for most of us.

I guess I'm reacting to this a bit more than I should. I just wish that people would spend more time worrying about their own lives rather than paying attention when their celebrities screw up.

She was a lesbian hooker (Whorenos) who sadistically killed the men she slept with and had a variety of mental problems. That's script material if I ever heard it.

I agree with Sadner, all his accusees were poor-ass trailer-trash looking for a cheap buck. Where was the rich person who slept in the same bed as Jackson? Macualy Culkin, and he confirmed that Jackson didn't do a damn thing to him when he was younger and they shared a bed.

What was the big deal when they said "We found alcohol, ciggarettes and pornography in Jackson's Neverland Ranch." Erm...big deal?

Jackson is a freak. There's no getting around that. ANYONE who thinks it's just fine to sleep in the same bed as a child when your 40 years old is a freak, that's a fact. But the question is; is he a child molesting freak? I don't think so. If you look at the accuser's mom, she has tried scamming celebrities in the past. I couldn't bring myself to believe that someone who's lied about welfare, tried scamming other celebs out of money in the past, and actually went to a lawyer before going to the police after the alledged molestation could be telling the truth. It just doesn't add up.

Maybe we all jumped the gun a little.. At first I was convinced of Michael Jacksons guilt - as has been said, "who in their right mind sleeps with a child four decades their junior" - but the innocent verdict is making me doubt my judgement.

Is it really that odd for a rich man to want to make kids happy? For all the thousands of movie and music stars who spend their riches on themselves one decided to create a place where children could come and play.. odd, certainly, but was it criminal?

In this day and age we're constantly looking over our shoulder for something. Adults can't treat kids with any kind of compassion without their motives being questioned. Every move they make can be construed in some negative way. Those who deal with children daily don't know where to stand. Perhaps in trying to protect the innocence of children we are choosing to ignore the innocence of men and women - jumping the gun again.

And maybe, just maybe, a few of us looked at that funny man and percieved only his odd voice and eccentric lifestyle. Weird dancing and radical facial changes. Could it be that we looked at that man - fractured under a life of media strain - without compassion; willing him to be a freak instead.

For myself I just don't know.. My motives were only human, but then so were his.

i just felt like making fun of him for a change , just a little reip off of the lyrics. Theres hype about him getting back in to the music industry , but i doubt it for reasons of how much debt he is in atm , or it could take a while for that to happen as he has to clear his debts
