I think he had inappropriate boundary issues and wonder what kind of parents let their young children sleep over at a middle-aged man's house and "lovingly share a bed."
Enough about "he never had a childhood." A lot of people didn't, for good and bad reasons.

I believe he could have interacted inappropriately with several children and done some significant psychological damage.

I don't know anyone personally that would find a child sleeping in a bed with a non-family member over the age of 5/6 acceptable.

Every interviewer that I have seen/heard question him about this also seemed to find this unusual. Jackson's response, 'It's the most loving thing you can do to share your bed with a child', is clearly not a belief shared by many.

I heard Deepak Chopra/and son referring to him as a 'mystical being'. Perhaps they are correct and since they presumably knew him more intimately than the public at large then I can only assume they accepted him regardless of any flaws. 'Love'---yes, it can be defined in many ways. I believe it is 'Agape'/love that is defined as deep compassion for mankind. That is good but the better way to demonstrate that sort of feeling would be true humanitarian service. Jackson seemed prone to self-indulgence in many areas of his life and I don't care to speculate further.
----I agree, I do not find it acceptable, I am the father of 3 boys, so no, I don't like it one bit

----Most loving thing you can do, BS, give me a break, I don't buy that line of crap for a minute.

It isn't right.

Now a bunch of boys sleeping all over the living room floor in sleeping bags with an adult on the couch, or the other room for that matter, I have no problem with that, not one kid would sleep anyway.....

But "one on one" in bed, NO, I have a big problem with that!!

There was no "one on one" for crying out loud. Some of the kids would ask to sleep in his room. There were always kids and sometimes adults too. In the bed and on the floor. Read the transcripts. That trial was a joke. Everyone in the courtroom knew it except the money hungry media. Research the facts people instead of giving opinions.

i think that our judgement is heavily color coded when it comes to AA celebrities committing crime.
its about principles not personality or skin tone.

well he was found innocent and....celebs stood by his side supporting him and parents and non parents world wide should a lot of support when he was alive and poured out the sorrow when he was alive.

I was never with him, Never met him so i don't know but for a black man turned white he seems to be a major chameleon

Why do people take quotes out of context?
Is it a comprehension thing?
I wish people would,read learn then state their feelings after all facts have been weighed!

Do i think he molested kids?
Do I think he was a little crazy and needed some good advisers

No, I don't think he did. I do believe however due to his childlike behavior; his interaction with children may have made some people suspicious.

I wouldn't be surprised though if some of these children parents tried to sell their children to MJ for sex. I'll never understand how someone could allow their child to spend the night over a grown man's house.

I don't think he molested any children either. I do think it was a bad decision on his part to spend time in the same bed with kids even if it was just to read them a bedtime story, have warm milk with them, or just plain sleep. The least he should've done if he was going to do those things would've been to keep his mouth shut about it. He never should've admitted it in an interview. I think Michael Jackson was incredibly naive but I do think he genuinely loved children.

I think he had a royally screwed up childhood for sure. Beyond that, not sure.

I have no idea...but I'd lean toward it being a possibility.

His behavior certainly opened up the door for speculation.
