I have heard in news, that trials on Michael Jackson have started in the court of small town Santa Marian in CA.

article at CNN

What do you folks think about this? Is someone using reputation of king of pop to earn money or become famous or is he really pervert?
I don't want to hurt any fans feelings, but I don't know much about this issue. Never was fan of Jackson also.

But, if he is innocent then, ohh God, nobody deserves such a shame especially in public. Discuss?

Actually, I still think we shouldn't call Jacko a pervert until it is proven in a court of law that he is guilty. Yes, he is a weirdo ("What's wrong with sleeping with children?") and he is definitely crazy, but on the other hand, it's more than a bit suspicious that those accusations always come out when he has released a new CD (check it, it's true), and that when he offers some money to keep the gag on the families, they almost always take it.

So, they *know* he'll offer the money, to save his reputation, whether he's guilty or not - and they take it, so what they're after is not justice, but a big fat pile of cash.

If Jacko is found guilty, then let him be sent to the deepest dungeon of Hell with all the other sexual criminals. But if he's not, then I daresay the families who charged him could be put on trial for slander and blackmail.

I do care. When I was lonely wolf having no family and obligations I never cared about such things. Now I have two kids and beleive me I care. I do not want any elder (even king of pop) trying to seduce them.

I agree with Stormy, Jacko is definatly a flake, but weather or not he is a pedophile remains to be seen.

No you misunderstood my intentions which was my own fault for not explaining them. I dont know how it is in Europe but across the pond the amount of attention given to celebrities and their action is rediculous. The only thing worse is the fact that people live and die over the outcomes and its like their life changes if Britney spears gets a boob job. My point is that this kind of attention is not paid to things that are far more important and I cannot remember the last time I saw something like this out side the celebrity world. Its like actions dont matter unless they are done by someone that is worth millions of dollars....so yeah sorry bout that one of my hugest pet peeves

If Jacko does go thro the entire trial, a jury of his peers will let us know if he is guilty or not, but with the money he has I would not be surprised if this case wass setteled before that happens. Even if he is found guilty and does go to jail, it will be a 'country club' jail for him.

From the psychological point of view, I fear that at one point something had gone wrong in his mind.

Who knows,
i think he had a hard childhood,
earned a lot(= to much)of money.
couldn't handle the money and the fame.
had problems with his sexuality, his body...eventualy his mind snapped, and his live is manipulated and guided by other people...

but that he had sexual engaigments with children? I don't beleive soo.

I agree with you on that one Bean, there are a lot of jealous and suspicious people out there, and the press have been on his back since childhood and more or less forced him into being a recluse, the press have a lot to answer for.

Ok, lets just wait and see if he will be able to get out of this trial with clean hands. I assume he will, taking into account the amount of resources he has at his disposal.

Faile, are you teasing? Or did he spend all of his money on the last house he bought? (I know I could look it up on the internet, but I'm lazy). <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

No matter how much money he's made - Michael is a tuly "broken" person (IMO). He was "pushed" at such a young age to make money for the family due to his outstanding talent that I think something just broke. He keeps trying to make up for his lost childhood by "playing"(more than the rest of us even <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ouch.gif" alt="" /> ). This doesn't mean he couldn't hurt a child nor does it mean he did hurt a child. You never can tell which people will touch a child in a perverted manner. My sister's and I spent quite a bit of time in our youth trying to keep an "uncle" from touching us inappropriately (he never went to jail since the family kept covering up his misdeeds!!).

Still although it is sad that the media is playing this up so much because Michael is famous - it might draw more attention to that silent aggressor. If it makes one more person report these child molestors it would be great!!
