    Pure Speculation EDITORIAL

    If he is sooo charitible and loves children so much, why aren't there any little GIRLS?

    Sure, Girls go to Neverland, but they aren't invited into the inner sanctum...You'd think the first 20 mill payoff would have cured him from hanging with kids, unless there is a compulsion that is too powerful to restrain.

    Sounds like a very sefish form of charity. It's all about Michael being a kid again and recapturing his childhood, and the benevolence seems to be all based on HIS desires and personal needs, not theirs.

    Part of me hopes he is innocent and is freed. That would mean many lives have not been ruined. I'd like to think the best, but the preponderence of circumstance points me in another direction. Lets hope the legal system works and the ultimate truth wins out for the sake of the victims, be it MJ or the kids.

    I believe he is guilty. As G said, where there is smoke there is fire. And there isn't just smoke. There is a decade of smoldering flames! I think of the Samantha Runnion case and how that guy that killed her was aquitted of child molestation and how if that jury had just listened to those children, another child wouldn't have been harmed. I am not calling Jacko a murderer, but I imagine many more children will be harmed by this man if he is acquitted.

    That being said, I am not sure the prosecution proved it's case beyond a reasonable doubt. The boy was an amazing witness and has kept his story straight from the beginning, so I hope that is enough. I am just praying that he is not able to hurt another child.

    I believe he is a pedophile but I think it will be either a hung jury or he will get off (no pun intended) scott free. And if he doesn't, I pray we don't have a repeat of 1992!

    GUILTY!! me and the old man were talking about this just this evening..he was undecided till he found out that there were 4 boys that have accused him..and about the child porn books found in his room..now if i was a star and was accused i woulnt pay off anybody..i would fight it till i died if i was innocent like mikey claims.. and anybody who sleeps with little boys who arent their own well, that is just plain wrong i was watching something on tv today called inside michael jacksons mind and they brought up the fact that all the kids that have accused him are a "type" all have some characteristic they share in their looks

    i would say that it was greedy parents normally but if 4 boys say almost the same thing then im thinking that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck... if you go check out the court papers from the first accusation at the smoking gun site they are almost to the t as to what this current accuser is saying..and be careful the stuff at the smoking gun will turn your stomach!

    i just hope that this freak is stopped before he can scar another little boy for life!

    God, this poor man is not only physically disfigured but socially disfigured as well. Look where the path of a abuse leads children. God damn, it upsets me more that his father believes that abusing his children was right every step of the way, to this day. Not a one of them turned out normal, and you don't think it can be counted back to their father's abuse?

    I'm gonna say Not Guilty, but fairly close to "don't Care!"

    But, I will say, I met MJ when I was 11-12 and he didn't molest me, but then again, I'm ugly so I guess that theory is out the door!

    Not to go all 'law student' on everyone, but it's much more complicated than simply if he's found guilty or not guilty. In fact according to what I've read in the jury instructions document (which is 98 pages!) there are 10 seperate Counts (charges). Here's a rundown of them:

    Count 1: Conspiracy to commit the crimes of extortion, false imprisonment or child abduction
    Count 2: Lewd Act Upon a Child, the first alleged molestation testified to by Gavin Arvizo
    Count 3: Lewd Act Upon a Child, the second alleged molestation testified to by Gavin Arvizo
    Count 4: Lewd Act Upon a Child, the first alleged molestation witnessed by Star Arivizo
    Count 5: Lewd Act Upon a Child, the second alleged molestation witnessed by Star Arivizo
    Count 6: Attempt to Commit a Lewd Act Upon a Child
    Count 7: Administering an Intoxicating Agent to Assist in the commission of a Felony, as alleged in Count 2
    Count 8: Administering an Intoxicating Agent to Assist in the Commission of a Felony, as alleged in Count 3
    Count 9: Administering an Intoxicating Agent to Assist in the Comission of a Felony, as alleged in Count 4
    Count 10: Administering an Intoxicating Agent to Assist in the Commission of a Felony, as alleged in Count 5.

    In addition to this whole mess, the jury has the power to find him guilty of a lesser crime than the one charge, if they deem that proper.

    Translated, that means for Counts 7-10, if they don't agree on Administering an Intoxicating Agent to Assist in the Commission of a Felony, they can still find him guilty on the lesser crime of Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor. From what I know, Counts 1-6 have no lesser crimes that the jury can move to.

    Whew, okay. So from what I've been hearing, Counts 7-10 probably will be reduced to Furnishing Alochol to a Minor, and he'll be found guilty on those. Count 1 of conspiracy will be denied. Count 6 of Attempt will be granted. Which leads the four big ones, (2-5) of Lewd Act Upon a Child. From what I'm hearing, he'll be found guilty one at least one, but probably not more than 2.

    Wow...this was much longer than I thought it would be. Sorry everyone. It's summer, but I still can't shut off that part of my brain.

    Ok, I've got a question no one seems to have addressed:

    Why is it that every time there is a news story on Michael Jackson they show this ugly, middle-aged, white woman with bad makeup???

    That's either Latoya Jackson, Diana Ross or Fran Drescher silly!

    I'd have to go with guilty but I expect the jury will let him moonwalk.
