Default Do you think Michael Jackson molested children?

I personally do not. Please keep your arguments civil.

After he died one of the parents that accused MJ of molesting his child said the allegation wasnt true and he was just trying to get money from him.

Yeah, it was pretty much proven that he didn't do anything. Did he have issues? yes, of course he did, but that doesn't make him a child molester. RIP MJ....

It's possible that he didn't molest children in the traditional/physical sense.

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 enjoy his music and he is a very gifted entertainer.

Having said that, I do believe he had inappropriate relations with children. Otherwise why would he have settled for 15+ million in 1993/94?

The first case was a known lie and he was acquitted of the second one because this mother tried to extort money from other celebs.

Right, so then why would you let your kid spend the night? For money maybe?

Well they didn't show the whole clip of that. What he continues to go on saying is that he gives the guest his bed, and he sleeps on the floor. But that wouldn't make very good television, would it?

I hate to be such an ardent defender of Michael Jackson, since a lot of his personal life was strange to say the least, but the whole molestation thing is so bogus and illogical if you think about it. Out of all the kids who stayed at his house, you'd think there'd be tons of people coming forward. The two kids that did come forward turned out to be liars. I'm just saying...
