I am so tired of the circus like environment that JACKO creates where ever he goes.
On Foxnews this AM there where droves of people outside the courtroom who adimitly support this guy. The fact is that these types of charges have been brought up before him time and time again.....that fact alone and the fact he had reached settlements with two of the victims tells me there has to be some truth to the charges....why would you settle with cash if you are truly innocent????
I wish the Judge would issue a Quash order against his ability to discuss the case with the public such as the impromptu statements made by him on the courthouse steps. I wonder how much extra money it is going to cost the taxpayers of CA for extra security. IMO JACKO should be leaving the courthouse quietly and out of the sight as much as possible from the public.
I also get tired of those who have no basis to support their support claim that JACKO is innocent.....so many people are blind....look at the Martha Stewart case.....there are those who still claim she is innocent....KMart included.
I hope this trial does not drag on for nine months like OJ........God help us all if that happens.....

I hope they put him under the jail, but somehow I don't see that happening. But, there's got to be something to it....the second time in ten years, puhleeze! He's got to be found guilty first. Kind of reminds me of OJ, ya know?
Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

I wonder if he is acquitted if Michael will be out on a golf course in Florida looking for the real molestor.
As talented as he is, he is also a little off by most anyones standards. What bugs me the most here is how his celebrity status affords him special treatment. Had this been Joe blow, he would be sitting in jail throughout this process, and the grand jury process would have been much quicker. Hell he might have been through the trail by now too.

I disagree! Having seen that T.V. documentary about Jackson and the life he leads, he is clearly not a pedophile, not gay and not an evil person. Yes, he may have "issues". but I don't think he deserves to go to prison.
I think he is simply a man with a warped mind, similar to that of a child - hence him hanging around with children all the time and creating his "never, never land" place.
People should stand back and look at the whole picture instead of jumping to conclusions. In the documentary, I particularly disliked the way M. Bashier twisted and dug into Jackson and tried to bring out painful memories of his childhood, etc. FGS, let the man be!
Please not, this is JMHO.

I was a fan in the 80's and early 90's. I'm beyond it now.
Jackson cannot go through 20 or 30 MORE years of his life grieving over his lost childhood. Eventually he has to move on. WE GET IT: YOU DIDN'T HAVE A NORMAL CHILDHOOD. Everything about his fantasy world (Neverland, the Peter Pan complex, the monkeys, etc.) are his way of avoiding the reality that he will soon be 50 years old. He may soon be out of money. He will never look as he would like to look.
I am not accusing him of being guilty on the current charges. The legal system will take care of that.
I would guess that he is a very lonely man with very little reason to look forward to the future. However, he has invested so much energy in making himself different from everyone else (instead of searching for common ground) that he really has to accept responsibility for the magnifying glass he has placed on himself.
