Michael Jackson i think is a seriously disturbed individual. Aside from the allegations, he is a danger to children natural development and also himself by the sounds of things.

As for genius, once again, we are at the argument what constitutes genius. There is probably worth a thread in that debate alone.

SK6, why don't you go back and read my original post, here I'll make it easy.

Weird, yes. (Seems I'm not the only one that thinks this)

Genius, no. (Ditto)

Guilty of recent charges, I like the not proven thing rather than the not guitly one. (Not proven, doesn't mean not guilty)

Pedophile, probably. (My personal opinion)

Career over, I can only hope. (Obviously I'm not a fan, never have been)

The end of the story, not hardly. (Do you think that the story ends here?)

Likelihood of his children being adversely affected. Enough that I think DFS should remove them from his care. (Again, personal opinion, and again, I'm not the only one that thinks this.)

Yes, it is very amusing, for I can guarentee that you and I don't know each other, but you can't say the same about me knowing Jackson.

Your post is just a weak attempt to cover up what amounts to just simple name calling, and further demonstrates your ignorance concerning situations that you know nothing about.

Michael Jackson would be the last man on my list because the cosmetic surgery has made him one creepy, scary-looking individual. It would frighten the living bejeezus out of me to open my eyes in the morning and see him staring at me.

"Innocent until proved guilty" means that until you have been found guilty you have to be regarded as innocent; when you have been found not guilty that status is confirmed. No one is ever "found innocent".

Of course at the same time "not guilty" means that the jury decided that there was a reasonable doubt, and that there are not enough grounds to justify a guilty verdict - there's nothing inconsistent about deciding that there isn't a strong enough case to convict someone, and believing that they probably did commit the offence with which they were charged. But "probably" just doesn't cut it in matters where life and liberty are involved.

The alternative would be for juries to find people guilty beacause they have to just think they probably did it, even if there isn't enough evidence to exclude a reasonable doubt. Which is what happens only too often - and there are a lot of innocent people who have experienced that, and spend years in jail as a result.

That jury heard the evidence, every bit of it, and none of us did. They decided that there was a reasonable doubt, in face of all the assumptions about Jackson's guilt put across by the media throughout.

If being weird means you belong in jail, there's an awful lot of people ought to be in jail, and not just in California.
...........................

I noticed where the prosecutor, asked about the length of the trial had taken commented that it would have been a lot quicker "in the South", with an implication, it seemed to me, that down there they know better how to deal with...

Philosophically speaking we are all end of line items in a massive clearance sale - possible in the kitchen department. Some of us are worktops, some are sink units and even the lavatory chains and stainless steel breadbins of this world have a place in the scheme of things.

But "probably" just doesn't cut it in matters where life and liberty are involved.

That is OK as far as it goes and in truth - it does not go very far to protect children from abuse. For there will always be reasonable doubt in these sort of cases where the main witness is a young victim and the older perpertrator has most of the legal and other advantages.

For when (as here) the jury members are allowed to explain their thinking afterwards - this probably causes us yet more concerns. This jury seemed relctant to judge the defendent (on the evidence provided) but very willing to judge certain key witnesses (when there was equally reasonable doubt).

Janet Arvizo was not on trial but this jury seemed to have judged and convicted her - mainy it would appear for the crime of 'clicking her fingers at and directly addressing the jury. In a contest which seemed to be one of who was the weirder between her and MJ - at least she was put on the stand and cross-examined. It perhaps would have been more fair and the outcome less unsatisfactory - if MJ had been subject to the same examination?

Perhaps when it is a case of one person's view against another - if the defence are permitted to only try to destroy the credibility of prosecution witnesses - the understanding should be that defendant should also have to take the stand and be cross-examined?

It seems to have escaped this jury's notice that Janet Avizo was not the victim of child abuse and was not even present when this (alegedly) took place. Her young children and MJ however were present.

So Eric..you have obvious hold of some factual evidence that MJ is guilty...why were you not a witness at his trial....or are you just another who has his own opinion!
Calling someone a paedophile when they have not been convicted of being one is surely slander to say the least.
How do you measure danger to a child? Have we seen any evidence of a child actually being damaged here or are we all so insensed by what we believe has happened due to press flaming? that we believe a child or children have been damaged.
Michael Jackson has been niaive!
In point of fact he may be totally innocent of all the charges and the centre of attack because of his fame..not necessarily getting better treatment because of it.
We will never know the whole truth...but we can play games with it in our own and others minds because we have freedom of speech!
Best wishes, Mike.

It will do him more damage than good, as the producers waiting for his agreement already know. He will donate the proceeds to a children's charity and life will go on.

Eric. I am not defending Michael Jackson here. I am defending anyone who has not been proved to be a paedophile...and it has not been proved that he is. Your word for it is not good enough....you have no right to condemn anyone who has not been found guilty.
I would defend you if someone accused you of something and there was no real evidence to prove you were guilty. None of us knows the truth so we have no right to judge...your opinion is only as valuable as someone wishes to make it....If Michael Jackson reads your contributions to this thread he could sue you for slander.

A totally innocent person facing charges that could mean spending a lifetime in jail should a jury decided to convict, might very well decide to pay up to avoid the risk. That wouldn't in itself imply anything about actual guilt. After all, there have been numerous cases of people being convicted of things they hadn't done.

Was there really any reasonable doubt about the charge of MJ supplying alcohol to these children? This jury thought there was but it is very difficult from the evidence provided to them - to see how they came to this conclusion.

For the other children present at these 'drinking games' were not even produced as defence witnesses to testify that these games did not take place.

Performer he may be, but the jury were not swayed by his performance; he didn't take the stand, something to do with the American Constitution or something like that. Anyone who thinks that his appearance or demeanor in court did him any favours is seriously misguided.

Luckily he was judged by a group of people who had to sit through all the evidence and not by either newspapers out to sell scandal or by the great mob of righteous people who love any opportuniy to vent their hatred towards anyone they see as different.

The state put enormous efforts into trying to find dirt and make a case and could not do so. Innocent unless proven guilty, end of story.

Lucky for him but perhaps not lucky for everyone else or justice. These people did not have any reservations about judging Janet Arvizo as being 'different'. She did speak to testify and enable the jury to judge on her performance - even though she was not the one on trial.

MJ was the one on trial - not for being 'different' but to establish if he had broken the law.

The court said he was innocent. FIne. that doesn't mean he didn't do it it just meant the jury wasn't sure. We will hear of this again. Ws he on trial in people's minds for being weird and rich as Little Hawk suggests? possibly but let em leave a couple of thoughts here. If he is so innocent Why did he return to having children sleep in his bed after settling out of court the first time? Were I , or any sane person in that situation and innocent as Michael Jackson claims, they would ensure that there were no further incidents to destroy their credibility. I believe the man is a pedophile and will not change his ways even though he says he will
Also had a normal(read non-celebrity or rich) person shown up an hour late for court they would have been in lock up so quickly that the judge would have broke the sound barrier getting them there.
Michael Jackson should than God that he lives in a country where rules of law and evidence apply. he dodged the bullet this time. How long will it be until the sequal to this ugly story raises it's head again? Neil
