Don’t cry for Michael Jackson.

I couldn’t care if Michael Jackson was the “King of Pop” or the king of Spain. Talented, he may have been. A sad, sad person so unhappy with himself that he had to carve himself up into a freak… Sure. But to admire him is offensive to all those children who he molested.

The accolades being heaped on him by the famous and the fans does a disservice to all those children yet to be molested by other pedophiles who see in him a kindred spirit.

Sure, he was acquitted but it wasn’t his innocence that got him off. It was his money and his fame that “acquitted” him. He paid off the parents of the children, something that those children will live with for the rest of their lives. Shame on him, shame on the parents, and shame on his excusers.

He and OJ will have plenty to talk about when they meet up.

“King of Pop”?… Maybe.

Pedophile?… yes.

    I agree with you..He was a mentally ill individual who was inappropriate toward children…..I was more sad to see that Farah Fawcett had died after watching her story on her cancer battle….Michelle

      Indeed…

      Someone close to me suffered at the hands of a child molester whose family refused to believe he would do what he was caught red-handed doing, and got a slap on the wrist. All the while, the family of this child never got the support from the police, the court, the Children’s Aid Society, or the Victim’s support centre at the courthouse.

      In fact, it was the defense lawyer who finally had to insist that the court receive our victim impact statement. The Crown refused to read it or admit it into court… Even so, the only person to read it was the judge. But I know he did because in his sentencing, he said something that was almost word-for-word what I wrote… The only comfort the family got in the whole ordeal.
