Jacko: Not Guilty by George on 14 June 2005 7:44am
 
Well, I guess what the jury is saying is, no matter how wierd Jackson appears, he's a decent human being.

I just love it when the media gets it wrong.

I was sooooooo relieved when the verdict came in!! To my mind, he is misguided and naive in the way he deals with children, not evil.

It's a shame though that in this day and age someone who truly loves children gets hounded like this. Yes, if there is evidence of paedophilia going on, then the full weight of the law should be used. But today, many grandfathers hesitate to put their grandchildren on their knee, and fathers don't feel that they can bath their young daughters, etc etc.

A sad state of affairs.

Hope the media all print or transmit apologies to him - some hope, huh?!

Go Michael!!

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!

I am unsure if he's innocent but am prepared to give him the benfit of the doubt. However, I don't think he is capable of being a good parent to his own children. To make them wear masks while still persuing publicity is a dubious stratagy and I fear for their sanity. I love his music and he is a truly great artist but that doesn't mean he is a capable parent. He is a sad creature.

He didn't 'threaten to throw his child off a balcony'!! He was showing it off to the crowd!

Yes he was terribly misguided - even stupid - to do it, but he did not wish to harm the child.

Of course he didn't wish his child harm. He has the mind of a child, that's obvious. It would appear that his "protectors" are also misguided. I do not wish to malign him Anne as I recognise what a huge contribution he has made to contemporary music. I just have concerns about the stabilty of his parenthood. The media certainly have to answer for their role in his public persona. Linz

jacko is guilty. he is a dirty old man who abused those poor boys and was found innocent due to the fact that he is a 'superstar' who enjoys the benifits of being very rich, and in the american justice system that helps a great deal. i think the fans that have unquestionably supported him are not clearly looking at the evidence and have been increasingly vocal about jacksons innocence before hearing the evidence. the fans and indeed the media have forgotten that at the centre of all this there is a young boy who has been abused, jackson is not and will never be the victim, he is a 46 year old man who should know better.

I think that his behaviour is abhorrent.

No rational person can believe the not gulity verdict, although we have to accept it as true or else our whole justice system would be flawed.

in my opinion micheal jackson is not an innocent 'peter pan' like figure he is a minipulative and disgusting man who has every grasp on reality and abuses vunerable children.

He's found with child porn on his property, he sleeps with children and even the jury members admit that they believe he probably did molest boys in the past.

"Go Michael!!"!! What a 'relief'!!!!

Some of you make me physically sick, condoning that sort of behaviour.
 
Re: Jacko: Not Guilty by Blasi on 14 June 2005 1:52pm
 
Maybe some of your thoughts will change when you actually have children. If you already have them however, I'm seriously, seriously disturbed.
 
Re: Jacko: Not Guilty by Spursfan on 14 June 2005 3:03pm
 
Actually I have 2 grown up kids and 4 grandchildren aged between 5 and 14!!
