Did Michael Jackson molest children?

Michael Jackson was put on trial for molesting Gavin Arvizo, a 13 year old boy (at the time of the offenses). On 13 Jun 2005 the jury acquitted Michael Jackson of all charges. However, his reputation has never fully recovered, with comedians joking about him molesting kids both before anything was proven and long after he was found innocent. Michael Jackson died on the 25th of June, 2009, from a heart attack, at age 50.

...no matter what my fond memories and fond images of Michael were, with one allegation of paedophilia after another and another and another… Oh dear. I knew some of the musicians he toured with, and specifically one who quit because of seeing boys coming out of the hotel rooms. ... Well, you know, where there’s smoke there’s fire. There’s no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt. Michael’s on tape going, ‘Give the kids Jesus juice.’ Which is wine. I mean, it’s just endless.

To the outside world, news reports would have people believe that Jackson’s Neverland was filled with dark undercurrents, with sinister games to lure children into a trap. However, inside the courtroom, where it really counted, it turned out that the pop icon, through his own privately recorded statements, had convinced the jury that he was an innocent pawn.

[The allegations are] absolutely ridiculous. ... Somebody told me you should probably check out CNN because they're saying something about you. I just couldn't believe it. It was amazing to me that nobody even approached me and asked if these allegations were true.

...the only thing Michael was guilty of in my opinion, was naivete. While cuddling in the bed with children isn't technically illegal, it does violate several social norms; norms that a man who [...] refers to himself as “Peter Pan” would certainly pay a higher price for breaking. ...laying in bed with those children, watching movies, tickling, and engaging in general horseplay, sounds less like the work of a pedophile and more like the actions of a man trying to experience a [lost] childhood.

Michael didn't molest little children, people who hated him only sought to put him in prison for something he never did.

What really makes me mad is that before he died it was, " he's a pedophile" and what not now that he is dead its all like " he's a hero and he didnt do it" but I think he did it either way, before and after he died.

Well, he was found innocent so it really doesn’t matter if you haters still believe he did it. You people are pathetic. It's strange how you fools sit at home and formulate an opinion and judgement that you come to with the distorted facts that you received from your news programs, and believe that your judgement is superior to a jury who listened to all of the facts first hand with no distortion and found no guilt. Years later, there were even some of the alleged molested kids who came forth in their adulthood and said the M.J. never molested them and that their parents made them lie in order to receive monetary compensation from M.J. M.J. was a man who loved the innocence of children and has donated more time and money to feed the needy children than most of the stars ever will. He was not just an entertainer with a collection of hits. He was a humanitarian who strove to better the world, improve the relationships between the races, ease the pain and suffering of starving children, and even made efforts to save the planet by trying to use his influence to make us all more aware that "we" are responsible for the environment. Remember the "Heal The World" song that M.J. wrote and worked hard to get other singers involved with? M.J. and the other artists donated all the proceeds for that song to charities and other needy causes. He literally gave millions of dollars away by doing this. Remember when President Ronald Reagan personally gave M.J. an award in front of the whole world for being a good role model and humanitarian? M.J. used his God given talent to glorify God (as the bible says we should) by doing godly acts of kindness and charity. How quickly "we", who have done so little to help the world, stand and cast stones at a man who did. People are consistent, and the past of M.J. in regards to the countless good deeds he did, are not consistent with these false accusations. The type of person who had done the countless good deeds that M.J. did, is not the type of man who molests children. However, there are those of us who rejoice in believing that a righteous giant, has tumbled and fallen in the name of wickedness somehow. There are those of us who would rather believe these false accusations, because we never wanted to believe that M.J. was so much more of a better person than us anyway. It makes "us" feel better about our own lack of effort to better the world, when we can minimize the accomplishments of another with our persecution. How small of “us” to do such a thing. “We” should be ashamed of ourselves. The problem with M.J. was, that he was too trusting (like a child), and he viewed his interaction with children as a child did, and not as we "so called normal" adults viewed the interaction. To a child, there's nothing wrong with having a sleep over, and having your slumber party friends sleep in your bed. That's how he viewed it. He did these things in his innocence and perceived these acts innocently. As a child, you never think your friends will betray you as those parasites betrayed M.J. He was, in many ways, a child trapped in a man's body. Even his "Never, Never Land", estate was an attempt to hold fast to the childhood that he never really experienced as a child. He never really grew up. He simply matured in a bodily sense, but not mentally. Sure, he had his issues and mental set backs, but we all do. Surely, he was not perfect, but none of us are. The sad thing is, that M.J. simply remained with his perfect "child-like" innocence that this cold world steals from us as we grow into adults. In all honesty, if we all kept that innocence, the world would be a much better place. Few of us will ever be blessed enough to donate as much money to charitable causes as M.J. did, but time is free. So, when you hypocrits have even donated just half of the time to charitable causes that M.J. did, then open your mouths and speak with your forked tongues in judgement. Rest in peace M.J. We miss you.

I cant beleive in a modern developed society there are so many weirdos hell bent on hero worshiping a blaitant peadophile just because he produced some good songs??
have you peouple not learned from recent revolations about jimmy savile,garry glitter,and elvis presley.I did and still like these stars output but am able to seperate there great performances from the fact that the evidence clearley shows they are guilty of the crimes.
The weight of evidence and accusation is oaverwhelming,he was clearly, worryingly mentally sick and capable,he concentrated his efforts on providing an enviroment solely for this purpose makeing minimal excuses for his actions ,
he never individualy denied the accusations mearly stated he had not been found guilty in a court of law.and buried the accusations with indecent amounts cash so we will never find out what really happend.
he knew and it has been shown that this hasnt made it go away,so if there was no fact to the allegations why would you pay off someone who is trying do you and your reputation harm??
all who are involved in the couverup and still proffiting from gullable fans should be ashamed and allow the evidence to come to light.
was there ever a more blaitant case than this??

I do think Michael Jackson molested those kids. There are people that have come out and said that he molested them. Plus, 40 year old me do not sleep in the same bed with children that are not their own kids. However, while I do think Michael Jackson molested the kids and that it was his fault, there was probably some kind of problems with his head. He had a horrible childhood. He and his siblings were beaten a lot by their father as kids. That is why they went into the music business. To make money for their parents so that their father wouldn't beat them. So I do think that Michael Jackson molested the kids. However, it was most likely because he was mentally and emotionally unstable.


0 Points      mala      21 Dec 2012      General Comment
michael has lots of problems and was a sick man. I agree with you, there is not one decent mother that would allow their kids to sleep with a 45 year old man, unless they manipulate their children and care more about money and greed, which is sad but look some mothers kill their own children

I will tell you something. A few years before his "so called passing" he went away to find a normal girl and while gone he left this kids for 2 years and could not care less about leaving them. For someone that "bought" his kids he sure made no effort to be with them. He fooled the public with his lies and fake image that I really dont believe God sees him as God like.

He did molest those kids and I have to disagree with the mental part , I think he was perfectly sane when he did this, it was a way to him to have someone touch him.

Pedofhiles HIDE that they are pedofhiles!

They do not talk out loud about loving children, sleeping with them, holding hands etc.

Michael Jackson showed his love for children so openly because he was NOT a pedophile.
His behavior actually prove his innocence.

Whatever problems he had for sure it did not include pedophile.

Try some logic and look in to the cases and you will understand.

NO! Michael Jackson was not a fucking child molestor. Here's what i've noticed whenever someone like Michael comes on this earth, they sacrifice their life for us in some way and then when they needed us the most, we put a knife in their back to where they can't get it out, inspite of everything they've done for us eventually we would hate them. The one thing we love more than a hero is to see one fall and suffer until they're dead, oh but see once they do die all of a sudden we love them; I don't think people like Michael belong here.

You must be young, came into the world way after the real ages of MJ. What do you mean someone like MJ sacrifices his life. Are you kidding me, Jesus sacrificed his life and helped to rid of our sins.

In no way is or has MJ ever been God like. It was all an act to keep up images for the public, like hello, even his soft voice was a fake. He didnt have a skin disease, he started blotching his own skin piece by piece so fans like you would believe anything.

You worshiped a false prophecy, um there is only one God

I could tell you stories that would make your head spin. yes he molested those boys and there are cases no one knows of that may surface soon. Some times he "hid" when it came to molesting young girls so know one but know one would find out.

If you ask God I think he may tell you that MJ misused this gift and that is a sin to God

I have devoted ALOT of time on researching this not for me, i never needed the evidence to tell me Michael was 100% innocent. I have always believed he was innocent. Here are some facts that I have given to people who were either on the fence or convinced of his guilt and now they completely believe he was infact innocent. First the 1993 casr-1)Evan Chandler went to Michael asking for $20 million BEFORE the authorites even knew about the alleged allegations, if Michael wanted to "buy off" Jordan's silence, as some people claim he did then why didnt he do it right then? Before the police trashed his home, before he was publically humiliated, before he was subjected to a dehumanizing search of his private parts? Instead he refused Evan's initial demand for money. Why would a guilty man do that? 2) There were two cases against Michael in 1993 the civil and the criminal. He settled the Civil case so he did not have to go to court in the civil and reveal his defense strategy to the prosecution(makes sense to me) plus paying the family did NOT prevent Jordan from testifying in the Criminal case, it was Jordan's own choice to not testify. 3) After the civil was setteled the criminal continued, it was brought in front of 2 grand juries and there was no evidence to charge Michael with anything. one thing is the boys description of michael's body parts were not correct, he said michael had markings(from vitiligo) and he said michael was circumsized. Well there were NO markings and Michael was NOT circumsized. 4) Jordan Chandler only made the allegations against Michael AFTER Evan Chandler injected Jordan with the drug sodium amytal 5) After Michael died, Jordan Chandler said "I just can't bare to lie anymore, Michael Jackson never did anything to me. It was lies from my father to escape from being poor. 6) Evan Chandler is recorded in a conversation with Jordan's step father talking about his big plan to bring Michael Jackson down(its a clear extortion attempt) As for the 2005 allegations. Seriously you need to research the Arvizo family, they have a colorful back ground, and the mother is a total fruitcake. Does anyone even relize that when the kids and mother were first interviewed by CPS they said about Michael, "he is a blessing, kind, loving," ect... but after they got Larry Feldman(the civil lawyer from 1993, who won the chandler's $20 million) the whole family changed their story, noone finds that the least bit strange. Anyway a JURY found Michael Not Guilty on all charges, because the family had no credability(the boys stories didnt corroborate, Gavin said "I dont know" at least 90 times on the stand, and he was caught in multipal lies) Maybe you should watch the good morning america interview with the juries and they explain why they found Michael Not Guilty. Both of these allegation cases are so obviously extortion attempts that you have to be fairly dense to not see it. Michael had a extremely rough life, famous or not Michael was never allowed to be a child, he was abused(by father and media), his looks constantly criticised(father and media), Michael was eccentric(I LOVE ECCENTRIC PEOPLE BTW) he was a beautiful, innocent man who was an easy target because of his eccentricities. Now, those people who despite all the evidence that proves Michael was innocent want to believe the other, go right ahead and believe what you want even if it is wrong. You are no better then the horrible, cruel human leeches that sought to destroy this amazing human being. Michael may have been addicted to pain killers and sedatives near the end of his life but look into his medical history, he had vitiligo(so does his oldest son), he had lupus, severe depression(thats no surprise) and he was an insomniac. It doesnt surprise me and Im not going to hate him for it. He was murdered, he didnt commit suicide.

I am extremely disturbed that anyone would comment on a person's guilt or innocence without having some understanding of the circumstances or the evidence. After MJ died in 2009 I was compelled to read the transcripts from the 2005 trail as well as various legal documents from the 1993 case after some asshole posted a comment about MJ being a child molester on my FB page. Which, by the way, was really annoying since he knew I was a fan. But that's beside the point. I was actually most frustrated by his comment since I was not in a position to respond to it one way or the other. So I read every document I could get my hands on in order to be informed and I was shocked by 1) the role mass media played in shaping public opinion contrary to the facts and 2) that it had been so easy to press charges with no evidence.

Here are some of the key facts that helped me come to a decision.

Jordan Chandler, alleged 1993 victim, refused to testify against MJ. His father, Evan Chandler, was the one who pressed charges shortly after MJ refused to fund a movie Evan wanted to produce. Jordan's mother has always maintained that her son was NOT molested. Even though the case was settled out of court the state could have pressed charges but decided not to when a state psychiatrist declared that MJ was NOT a pedophile. Also Jordan inaccurately identified MJ as being circumcised when he was not per court record at the time. Jordan's father, Evan Chandler, committed suicide in Nov 2009, five months after MJ died.

Gavin Arvizo, alleged victim 2005. MJ met him through a comedy camp he was attending as part of the Make-a-Wish foundation. MJ eventually invited the family to Neverland, and per court records was out of town for most of their stay. The family took advantage of access to his money, transportation, and separate living quarters on the grounds. In court Gavin and his brother's stories had serious discrepancies. Gavin, himself, seemed unemotional and detached which made him less-than convincing.

Janet Arvizo, mom of alleged victim who pressed charges in 2005. Janet was sedate, contradictory, and unresponsive on the stand. Her train of thought was not in line with questioning and she did not seem very credible as a result. It did not help that Janet had filed a lawsuit against JC Penny's in 1998 claiming she was "badly beaten" by store security when they apprehended her for shoplifting. Janet later recanted her story about JC Penny AFTER she settled out of court with them for $152K. The most damaging thing to come out of the JC Penny claim was the discovery that she had gotten both her boys to lie to the police about what actually happened that day. It established a pattern of using her boys to extort money. One year after the trail she was convicted of welfare fraud.

There were hundreds of sworn statements by other families who had visited the ranch brought into evidence (including Macauley Culkin) who vehemently denied any inappropriate behavior. Pedophiles are the most vile and disgusting humans on earth and anyone who knows anything about them knows that they are incapable of controlling themselves. There most certainly would have been other cases IF there was any truth to these allegations. It is amazing that not one other child came forward to piggyback on these claims during the trail. Not one.

Come to your own conclusions but make sure you do the research before passing judgment. The most dangerous thing in society is people who can't think for themselves and clearly the people who make sweeping ignorant statements know nothing about the facts.

MJ was a phoney and did not believe anything that the Illuminati had to do with this.

wow he was all an act to get fans to keep him at number one. He played everyone and did all those things for attention. Comeon think about it.

He even hated being black and bought white kids from strangers.

He blotched his skin in parts so that when he went white we would all think it was a skin disease when in reality he was a liar, and manipulator with obviously ashamed of his own race.

All I have to say is listen to the song 'Children' especially the Immortal remix, there's no fucking way a man, yes A MAN, like Michael did the things he was accused of. As mentioned below (or above, I don't really know how this site works yet) he's done so much, and he's helped so many people. He wanted the world to be a better place, and he wanted to make sure children had the childhood that he couldn't. Sure, he did things that society wouldn't look lightly upon, but not everybody is going to agree with everybody. I'm sure somebody is going to bash my post in disagreement with my opinion, but if it was Paul McCartney, or some other famous person that everbody loved, not some amazing singer/dancer that had a skin condition, would you still say the same things? Would you believe the accusations? Kids are capable of a lot more then we give them credit for, they're capable of lying and parents are capable of manipulating their children to lie for them. Shit, I mean one parent was charged with welfare fraud...doesn't that seem odd that they'd suddenly sue MJ because they didnt have money? I think so, but who am I to say? Anyways, I just wanted to get that built up frustration out about this subject. I'm gonna go rock the fuck out to some Michael Jackson. MJ, I'll see you in heaven man, we'll moonwalk to the pearly gates together! 1958-FOREVER.

um he wasnt a so called man, boy you must be young, he played all and everything he did was for his own public image. He was a liar.

Ask God if he thinks he was a man. That is if you actually dont believe MJ is God and worship MJ, which is what most did and it is a sin

I think you're the one who likes it from the way you use your language. Michael Jackson was an incredible entertainer and i will stand by him and his music for a long time to come. Maybe you should go down to the library and check out the movie about his life. Or just turn on VH1 it's always playing. That man never got the chance to be a child. From the time he was 5 years old, his whole life was about music and shows and entertaining. He would get beat if he wanted to go play with other kids his age. I feel very strongly about this b/c people are so quick to judge his extreme playland of sorts where young kids would and stay. well, he knew those kids number one. They weren't strange children that he lured into his home. They knew him and his family. It's sick that he got treated the way he did b/c of his looks and his "strange demeanor" He was an incredible performer and he only longed for the one thing that he missed out on his whole life. The chance to be a normal kid.

Money does not buy a "not guilty" verdict, bottom line. Evidence will bring a "guilty" verdict. The jurors ruled the plaintiff NOT GUILTY, how simple is that? I thought we lived in a country where we are "innocent until proven guilty in the court of law"? What if you were convicted of a crime you didn't commit, or, even one you DID commit. Would you want to be judged by what others think about you, or by the evidence of your supposed crime? I personally do not trust people because of false accusations from my past. If you're going to file charges against me, you better have evidence. Jury's could care less about what you think about someone.

Where is the evidence? Millions of tax-payer dollars were spent trying to find evidence. Every residence was searched, MJ's body tested, children were begged to come forward. Thousands of children came through Neverland - Why were there not more witnesses who came forward? Is it possible 100% of the parents were able to be paid-off? I doubt it. There would be some mother out there who was so disgusted, she would fight to get him in jail.

MJ spent more than 200% more time volunteering than he did performing. He had art museums built, volunteered for the elderly. He won 25,000 international humanitarian awards. He donated hundreds of millions of dollars to orphanages and hospitals. He donated his Beat-It song to Ronald Reagan's campaign against drugs.

WE MADE MJ WEIRD. HE WAS FINE BEFORE HE WAS JUDGED OF THE MOST HIDEOUS CRIMES. According to many U.S. presidents, MJ made the world a better place. G. W. Bush made him an ambassador of light. 55 countries judged together to award him the Golden Elephant award for his humanitarian work.

He is not perfect. However, let's give him SOME credit. He decreased hunger in the world by half.

If you are PERFECT - Cast the first stone!!! If ye have not compassion, ye have NOTHING!

I really wonder if any of the people so that convinced Micheal is innocent have ever had a relationship with a child molester themselves? Because they seem to think that since Micheal is so lovable he can't be a child molester. You have to really not have loved and had an emotional attachment to someone who was just exploiting you sexually to be SO sure about the innocence of someone you only know from interviews and showmanship.

I lived with my child molester for years - loved and trusted him and then suffered at his hands for more time than I'd like to remember - and I fully believe Michael was being extorted. The first allegation the parents of the "abused boy" accepted a cash settlement? Really? Instead of getting justice for their child, they instead took a substantial sum of money... being a victim of child molestation I know I would never accept that for my own child... and if my mom decided to take money instead of getting justice for me, I know I'd be all over every public outlet I could berating her for choosing money over her own child.

These parents were trying to line their own pockets at the expense of their children and Michael - all Michael was guilty of was trying to enjoy life, help others and recapture the youth that was stolen from him by his father and his celebrity.

Not guilty of molesting children.....Jordon Chandler has admitted he lied...because his father told him to and the second charge was thrown out because the parents had made the rounds of celebrities and had tried to gain money by extortion. He didn't molest any child......and calling him a paedophille is ridiculous...if he had been what you are implying their would have been hundreds of sets of parents trying to inflate their bank accounts...for all the children that passed through the gates of Neverland...two attempts at extortion was all there was, total rubbish. Dr Murray killed Michael Jackson but the awful truth is the media killed him a very very long time ago....he never deserved to be treated the way he was....disgusting. It also has become apparent that Jordon Chandler's father killed himself....the guilt too much I presume. Horrendous affect on someones life.

I don't see how the richest man in the world could pay-off every angry parent and every prosecutor and get away with it while it also not hitting the media. MJ's insurance company paid off the first accusation because that is ALL the parents wanted. The prosecutors continued to beg Jordan and any children to come forward. Jordan has since admitted he lied because his father hit him behind the head with a barbell when he said he wouldn't. Jordan stated in July of 2009 that MJ was completely appropriate with him and did absolutely nothing wrong. Culkin also states that the charges are ridiculous and nothing of that sort ever happened. Culkin practically grew up with MJ for years.

How do you scientifically measure "retarded" and "blind". I have read every court document, searched for evidence myself.

AND I AM NOT A MJ FAN.

I just do NOT see the evidence. Every claim made against MJ is not measurable and is not evidence and there is no proof or anyone willing to back up their claim. Many claims made for MJ are full of personal experience with him or show evidence, etc.

Deepak Chopra took time off of work to grieve his friend (MJ) who was the most spiritual man he had ever met. Deepak Chopra was MJ's friend for 20 years and let his 16 yo son go on tour with MJ after the charges. Wayne Dyer says MJ was one of the most spiritual, loving, and harmless people he had ever met and dedicated a book to MJ in 1991 titled "Pure Magic".

I have a friend who volunteered with MJ over three decades. She is a professor at the University of Utah. She said she can not imagine in her wildest dreams that Mj would hurt a fly. "HE WAS SO AMAZINGLY FULL OF LOVE AND LIGHT".

We are not "retarded" or blind at all. While I do agree that MJ did have major quirks, I don't fully believe that he was a child molester. Even if he was, I still feel bad for him for having an abusive father. I mean absolutely no political correctness whatsoever. If Michael Jackson was a child molester, it could be due to his father taking his childhood away from him, thus tragically making him give into the devil and love children for all the wrong reasons. Still and all, Michael Jackson will be missed. :(

The media got bits and pieces of baseless stories, the public believed.

As years passed, so many of those who believed that Michael did molest children - learned the FACTS and how the media generally became one-sided.


The media circus was shrewd enough to make it appear that Michael was a criminal.
FACTS reveal that Michael was completely innocent.
But the truth prevails.
Michael is innocent, never molested children.

I agree that micheal ....wait i know he didnt do anything to those kids. The reason i know is because like micheal jackson i grew up not being able to go out side or watch tv or anything. I was forced to sit at a table all day every day until i was about 16. Not im 22 and im the oldest kid i know. Because of what happened in my life all i want to do is do the things i wanted to do as a child. Micheal jackson was pretty much forced by his dad to go into the music business and not have a childhood. And now that he is rich and has the money to do the things he desired as a kid, its wrong? No people are wrong to accuse him of somthin like that. If people would learn more about him they would see that hes just a child trying to catch up on all the things he missed and give to others that need it.

I agree with you generally. The thing about MJ that we will never understand is that he was so sheltered from regular life. Perhaps he did not understand the things you and I learn by being in public. He did not understand it would be received so badly to tell the world about his childlike behaviors. In a way he was just so naive to the way the public criticizes. Every person is different. We can not all be naive, rich, talented, etc. Some of us are experts in the law, some of us are experts in behavioral science or developmental psychology. MJ was the most successful entertainer in the world in history. I do believe that he was judged by the prosecutors and police officers and jury in as unbiased way as possible. People hold child molestation seriously. Not many people in those fields would even consider allowing themselves to be paid off and let a dangerous man go.

According to La Toya, Michael knew that she was forced to attack him in the press against her will and he did not blame her.[44] "He never held any of that against me, I remember when I'd got away from this total hell I'd been through where I'd been beaten, abused, controlled and forced to say those terrible things about Michael, which I didn't for a moment believe, he held out his arms and just hugged me. I was crying saying: 'I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry.' He just held me tight and said: 'I am your brother, I always knew it wasn't you saying those words." [45]

In 1993 in their New York home, Gordon beat Jackson repeatedly with a heavy brass dining room chair, leaving Jackson with black eyes, swollen lip and chin "the size of a clenched fist," cuts requiring 12 mouth stitches and contusions on her face, arms, legs and back.[32][33] Jackson lost consciousness during the beating, leading Gordon to believe she was dead. She recalled, "He called his friends and said, 'She's dead. I killed her,' because I was lying in a puddle of blood and I was out."[34] Gordon was arrested but then released, claiming he beat Jackson in self defense.[35]

In December 1993 Gordon hastily arranged a press conference in Tel Aviv, where he had Jackson read a statement claiming to believe the sensational sex abuse allegation against her younger brother Michael might be true.[36][37] This was an abrupt reversal of her previous defense of Michael against the charges.[38] Gordon claimed La Toya had proof which she was prepared to disclose for a fee of $500,000. A bidding war between US and UK tabloids began, but fell through when they realized that her revelations were not what she had claimed them to be.[39] According to La Toya, Gordon threatened to have siblings Michael and Janet killed if she didn't follow his orders.[34][40]

So, what about all the PARENTS of those children that allowed them to sleep with Michael and after that, all of a sudden they realized he was a child molester?
If i let my son sleeping with a grown man in a bad, either i'm absolutely convinced he's not a child molester or i'm just a bad person who doesn't care about his own children and want to speculate about the situation by asking money to him. Maybe both, which is probably the case.
One of the children that he was accused to have molested, when in the court, first said he had been molested describing explicitly sexual acts, then he was counter-interrogated about those acts and proved he didn't actually knew what those things he just said really meant, showing evidence that he was teached to say those things by someone else. He described MJ genitals that proved to be substanially different from the description by medical reports, as well.
Furthermore, the father of another child that he was accused to have molested was put in jail a few years later because he abused and beated repeatedly his son. There's evidence that those families tried to pay a MJ worker to lie on his habits and there's even a recording of a phone call made by a father in which he tells that they can do a lot of money with that story.
There's no doubt MJ had issues, probably due to the fact his father used to beat him and his brothers. He definetely was an ungrown child with a confused sexuality, an addiction to painkillers and medications who lived in a freaking theme park with a freaking monkey, but i say that doesn't necessarily mean he was a child molester.

Obviously Michael Jackson, the American pop artist, was a threat to white boys in America, and ultimately a threat to white men and their white sons. When you're not "white" in America, bad things happen to you. When you're a rich, non-white person in America, bad things happen to you, too.

So you all better be a good, law-abiding person if you're not "white" because they (the White People) shall never trust you for anything such as employment, medical school, law school, business ventures, etcetera.

OJ Simpson tried to voice his right as blackman to control his bitch but they (The White People) took care of him good. They took him to school and put him in his place; showing where a "boy" like him came from 200 years ago in their cotton plantation.

The rest of the world, Latinos, Eastern Europeans, and everyone else from Asia, are doomed to repeat the same history of the Black American. The race issue is not over even with Obama in the White House. "White House", that's an ironic, hypocritical description of the seat of power within the United States.

I have seen too many hypocrites ruin non-white people's lives with their unconscious bias. Michael Jackson wanted to be accepted in the society dominated by "White People". It is funny how former president Richard Milhous Nixon wanted to be accepted by high society but he was never formally accepted even by his own privileged "White People", according to the interview with Frost.

Are you the next hypocrite whose unconsciou bias screws everyone else?

I am thirteen years old, and i have already realized this world is not a very kind or fair place to live in. People love to have a say in everything. They love to make opinions and critisize people they dont even know the first thing about. They call people names while not even realizing that the one nasty comment they say is destroying someone inside. Why does anyone think they have the right to say ANYTHING bad about someone when they havent even taken the time to know enough to have a fair say? This is why people want to talk about how michael jackson was a bad person and molested children, but have they ever thought that they dont even know the whole story? You, you people who say Michael Jackson was not innocent, what do you know? were you there? do you know Michael Jackson OR the children involved? didnt think so. So keep your mouth shut. IF YOU DONT HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY- ESPECIALLY ABOUT SOMEONE YOU DONT KNOW- THEN DONT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. its that simple. So I really hope you people who "HATE" innocent (well, probably innocent, i really dont know either) Michael Jackson are happy: because your the ones who killed him.

I certainly don't believe this crap (pardon for my bad language). How many people whould do anything - and I say loud and clear, anything to get fame or money out of some famous man who is not only rich for his music? People has been using himand abusing him ever since he was a little kid, and he's firstly been used by his father whom wanted to get his own dream. Ever since the success of epic "Thriller", media networks started to get entire benefits from him. In the end 80's, Michael released another album called "BAD", which made a success and made him even bigger.

Accuser number 1; Jordan Chandler admited Michael never touched him, his father committed suicide (not just a coincidance in my eyes), and no realist proof were found, back then.

Accuser number 2; Gavin Arvizo contradicted himself from his own stories and sodid his brother. He seemed to completely not taking his issue seriously, when he was speaking with his doctor or psychologist as I saw in a video. His mother, Janet Arvizo was herself not that convincing.

Besides, I ask you to listen to this tape : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx8Z9fxxw-U Pretty much revealing, don't you think?

Oh, yes. I'd also love to add this; If oneday I'll have a child (not now, because I am still underage) I would NEVER accept anything nor money from someone who'd supposely molested them. Not even 22,000,000 dollars. Remember (as you can) what happened in 1993. Even though I wasn't born until 2 years later, I felt the need to add this.

Now, I wish you all a wondurous and lovely day.

So many people have an avertion to believing Jackson guilty due to their love of his music and their buying into the public persona he created. No man past the age of 16 is an 'asexual' person. Jacksons sense of self and sexuality were clearly very damaged - that is plain to see. How many of us would trust our children with someone so clearly disfunctional? In doing this some doubt must fall on the motives of the parents who allowed their children to sleep with him. However what grown man wants to sleep with children? He had a very particlar taste - pretty white boys . It seemed that his love for kids did not extend to girls or black children - this would implie, to me, motives less than pure. Many peodophiles seek out ways to be surrounded by kids - he had the money to create 'Neverland'. They also profess a 'love' for children. Why does his fame and money give him licence to sleep with children when any other member of the population would surely expect to be arrested and investigated for it? I have no doubt in my head at all that he was a peodophile - it is plain as the nose on his face. Remember that though the jury aquited him they also felt compelled to say that they found alligations made by other witness's credible and believable. WE can never be sure of the extent or nature of any abuse but to beleve he was some kind of 'Peter Pan' innocent man child is very niaeve.

Ok, I see the point in which you were attempting to make. However, you must remember that the media only captured certain pictures at certain times. From the media view, it did seem that MJ only was around "White Boys" never around "Girls," and "Black Children." Though, that is far from the truth! He provided love and care for "ALL" children of all race and nationality! You must remember that MJ was a male himself and a genius who still had childlike characteristics, so naturally he would gravitate to boys and not females! He was a very respectful person- wakeup....he was not dumb, he was a boy/male that had a lot of innocence. He wouldn't have been around little "girls" like that! So think about what I'm saying. He was a man with a childlike characteristics......off stage, he missed out on his childhood, he likeed to play and have fun "like a child", and he was respectful. Add this up! This does not add up to a person who you have described in you post. He was not a peodophile! A peodophile would have a constant yearning for children. Just misunderstood because of his genius. He never lived a normal life, though he attempted to in 2008-2009. MJ was a close friend of mine....as best as he knew how to be to any of his close friends. MJ's association with "Black" children. He provided support and mentoring to many, many "Black" children, more than you will ever know! The media did not capture this. Why? Because the media wanted to cast an image that MJ wanted to be white. That was far from the truth. MJ was not comfortable with himself, especially with his outter appearance starting from his younger years that carried on throughout his life. Unfortunately, he didn't see the beauty that we saw! I supported him then and I support he legacy until the very end of time. Please, people be open minded, and don't let the media control your thought process. Lastly, MJ was "Set-Up" by many!

No, Michael Jackson did not molest children.

When I was a child, I was lucky enough to be at Neverland Ranch, and I will never forget the wonder and magic that that place instilled in me. It's a place where dreams come true for everyone, and where someone who was robbed of his own childhood might have found a little piece of what he lost.

And when I was in bed with Michael, he may have kissed me on my hoo-hoo cha-cha, but he never molested me.

Rest in Peace Michael. You were too beautiful for this world from the years of 1982 through 1985. After that things got a little weird, but... You'll always have a place in my bed.

Millions and millions of tax dollars were spent in searching for evidence for which dozens of news sources worldwide said could NOT be found. Do you believe every single person is willing to be paid off? The prosecutors begged children to come forth with their testimonies to protect other children. No one came forward. Not even the "victim" children who's parents were asking for money.

Jordan Chandler came out two weeks after MJ's death and confessed he lied because his dad was beating him up with the side of a bar bell. Recordings were found of the adult accuser talking on the telephone about how he was going to get rich by making the claims.

What more do you want?

Plenty of evidence out there of innocence. Lack of evidence to convict.


0 Points      cca2011      16 Jan 2011      Stance on Question: Disagree
Please, at least consider my information I will provide. To find out more, the following are just a few of the excellent sources of information out there:

♦ Redemption - Geraldine Hughes
♦ Was Michael Jackson Framed? - 1994 GQ article (available online)
♦ Michael Jackson: The King of Pop's Darkest Hour - Lisa D. Campbell (available on Google Books)
♦ The Michael Jackson Conspiracy - Aphrodite Jones

There's always the court transcripts themselves too, which go into detail about the 1993 allegations and debunk much of the myths surrounding them. All this information is widely available, and as a media outlet you have an obligation to properly inform the public instead of relying on innuendo as a basis for shaping public opinion.

I will provide the brief facts below:

♦ Michael Jackson was the victim of an extortion plot. Both sets of families were in it for the money. In fact, the family wanted money the first time and was willing to take money. What parent of a molested child would do that? For sure not one who has been molested b/c they would not want money, they would justice. Also, the second family was no better, they too wanted money. In fact, they had sued JCPenny on false allegations, they have tried to set up Jay Leno and other stars. They too were lying and this was proven by the courts and FBI. The photographs and evidence taken of Michael Jackson taken by the police (which he never, ever should have had to endure) did NOT correlate with the descriptions given by the child. This is why NO charges were laid - the evidence did NOT exist, not the first time, not anytime.

♦ Michael Jackson's insurance company paid the settlement money without his
consent. Michael wanted to take the matter to trial and be vindicated. However, given that he was an enormous commodity in the entertainment industry with the potential to reap hundreds of millions of dollars it was considered better for his overall reputation and career to settle the matter and have it over with rather than go through potentially years of legal wrangling which could do far more damage.

♦ If you read the settlement documents, Michael expressly disclaimed any liability for the acts alleged. The settlement money was paid exclusively in relation to an unrelated claim of negligence.

♦ False allegations are made against celebrities on almost a daily basis, and many settle, despite having no liability, to allow them to get on with their careers. Settlement does not equal guilt. When this came up a second time, Michael was vindicated of all charges in 2005. Millions of taxpayer dollars were spent seeking a prosecution, based on the flimsiest of circumstantial evidence all of which had innocent explanations, that would never come. There was absolutely no evidence of wrongdoing. Michael was innocent.

♦ Before he passed, Michael expressed deep regret over settling the allegations and wished he hadn't and he did not want to be begin with. I too wish the settlement had never happened, because then there would be nothing that could be used as innuendo to suggest he was guilty of something he never did.

Yeah and besides, you really immature people are just saying that about Michael Jackson because you're jealous. Trust me, here is what a pastor (preacher whatever you call it) said in my Church. "People who lie and wine about things and people will always be proven wrong. People who ignore it and try to spread the truth are very more mature." Look. Here's the truth. I used to think that Michael molested chidren. Back then though, I only knew him as a singer for 5 days. So...5 days later I cried and asked my BFF, "Did Michael Jackson REALLY molest children??? DID HE?!" She answered me with, "Look, people said that before he died because they wanted his money. They say that on the internet because they're jealous. You know that right?" And then 5 more days later, I saw how caring MJ was and I'm like "Oh my gosh these people need to hear the truth before they lie!" Trust me, I know how you feel guys, but sometimes things aren't always true. So when you discover the truth, just ignore those people and tell them your story...TODAY ;D

You're seriously mistaken. That website is a mess of lies and tabloid rumors. In 2005 the prosecution wanted access to the specifics of that settlement and Michael's attorney filed a motion against it. It has been proven that Michael's insurance company would have paid regardless of whether Michael agreed to or not.

The two competing scenarios are:

1. MJ was guilty of pedophilia.
2. MJ's accusers were guilty of extortion.

I find '2' more likely. It seems highly plausible, having run the Neverland Ranch for that long, and being such an eccentric person in both behavior and appearance, that such an accusation would occur. Given that the parents of the kid MJ was accused of molesting had a track-record of lying, this really seems to confirm this scenario. Ultimately, the court not only failed to find any conclusive evidence against him, but the jury said that they "confidently came to their verdict". I can't rule out the possibility he was guilty, but the evidence strongly points towards his innocence. Furthermore, as a matter of principle, I believe people should be regarded as innocent until proven guilty. I've seen first hand that self-described "good people" can talk themselves into a lie that benefits them, even if it costs another person their time, money, and reputation. The principle of presuming innocence serves to fight that injustice.

Common sense tells me that heterosexual adult men do not sleep in the same bed as children. They also do not spend millions of dollars turning themselves into a pseudo woman. Are the people who believe Jackson was innocent insane?

You don’t get arrested and spend millions of dollars on an elite defense team and months and months in court if there is no evidence against you. Without evidence a judge will throw the case out immediately. In addition why would anyone award a family millions of dollars to drop the charges against you if you were innocent? In my mind that is as good as admitting guilt. If he was innocent he should have defended his good name to the end.

Defenders of Jackson keep saying that the so called “haters” are uneducated in regards to the facts but in reality they are actually the people who unaware and blind to the facts. Have none of you ever heard of his secret room and the contents that were discovered during the police search of Neverland Ranch? The thousands of pornographic items belonging to Jackson that was uncovered? Why would an innocent childlike man have these items? Do you not remember him admitting to serving alcohol to young children who were there for “sleepovers”? Open your eyes and pretend for a moment that these same facts and charges were in relation to man living in your neighborhood and see if you still feel the same about Jackson.

Whether or not Jackson was a product of his abusive childhood or was considered by his many fans as talented is irrelevant. Personally I look at the facts and put aside any like or dislike for the music and common sense tells me he was a deeply disturbed child molester.

You do realize the the pornography found at Neverland was adult, heterosexual S&M pornography right? You are correct about there being lots of it though.

He never admitted to serving children alcohol. He had it locked in a wine cellar. The "secret room" was a closet that was there when he bought the house.

Who the hell are you calling uneducated?

the kids in the 2005 trial admitted to and eyewitness accounts are that they were going to neverland when michael wasnt even there and breaking into the winecellar
and what your saying isnt even true u can still get arrested even if the evidence is minimal and all the police were going on was what the family said

and when you look back at 1993 the reason he wasnt arrested was not becuase of the settlement. Tom sneddon tried to get him arrested but even afdter 2 grand duries he was turned down. There wasnt enough evidence to even start a trial

in cae ur wondering no i wouldnt let my kid do that maybe u should be asking the families y they allowed it

and maybe u can explain why the judge in the 2005 trial didnt throw the prosecutor out after he planted evidence

Millions of cases go to court every year on very minimal evidence. It doesn't mean anything.

He wanted to fight the allegations in 93. His insurance company was going to pay the family regardless of what Michael wanted. Pushed by his team of advisors Michael finally agreed.

Please educate us on this evidence that proves Michael was guilty. What do you know that the rest of the world and the authorities don't? What contents were found in this secret room? I have read the list of items found in both 93 and 2003 and did not see anything that would prove guilt.

And the porn? Need I remind you that all of it was HETEROSEXUAL ADULT porn, not child porn. So what does that prove? That he was a normal man who liked porn. Well, then he must be guilty.

im sorry, i just had to comment on this. he was not heterosexual, he did spend money on some plastic surgery, but so what? who's business is that anyway? as he once said in the interview with oprah winfrey, he did not invent plastic surgery.

about the evidence against michael, uhm, are you aware of the fact that false evidence was made against him?? if he really was a pedophile, why was he not proven guilty? are you telling me the justice system in the US gives a free pass out of jail to pedophiles? i didn't think so.
about the money jackson paid the accusers, think about it in a different way, why did they back the hell off once michael jackson paid them money?? would you accept money from a celebrity if you knew he had molested your child? i didn't think so. (if you'd answer yes, then you have no moral).

next, jackson did in fact once mention magazines and the like that were rather explosive, but he said FANS sent those to him. he didnt get those himself.

another thing, have you ever listened to his songs? songs like scream, money, tabloid junkie? theyre about how the media and everyone falsely judge him. do you think a real pedophile would even think of writing such songs??

seriously, this discussion is beyond rediculous. he was proven innocent, so he is NOT a pedophile. learn to live with that fact.

Umm, while im not exactly sure how the whole thing was like, the arguments you made here is very weak. Firstly, you said that 'if he really was a pedophile, why was he not proven guilty'?. Well, it is impractical to assume the justice system in US to be perfect, because no justice system is. Its normal for a court to misjudge. In addition, how would you know whether michael jackson has bribed the jury or not, if he did in an indirect way, of course it will not be publicised.
'Why did they back out once they receive the money?' Well, two reasons. Firstly, they might not win because the evidence is probably weak even if the case was true. Secondly, if someone offer you millions of dollars, its hard for anyone to resist. I mean, be practical, there are so many things to worry about in the world rather than having high moral value and it takes an incredibly high moral value to resist millions of dollars if you only suffered molestation. Seriously, if someone offers me millions of dollars, i wont mind being molested. Just one off humiliation for a guarenteed future, who in the right set of mind wont do that?
Regarding the songs, he can be a philantropist but still have a psychology illness. Personally phedophiles arent really bad, its just a mental disorder. Everyone has his weakness, no one is a saint.
Anyway, that being said, i dont think being a pedophile should affect how others view his music. So.. ya.
In addition, while i feel that some of the accusations are true, many others were really just greed spurred.

In pure visceral terms, John Lennon's hit song Imagine remains the greatest musical expression of global desire for world peace and unity that we have ever known. Michael Jackson’s 1988 video Man in the Mirror was on a similar trajectory toward inspiring a closer look at mass consciousness. If Jackson’s bold political commentary and visual depictions of the horrors of imperialist tendencies signaled a Lennonesque problem for those in power, it would have been dwarfed in scope by the public fervor ready to be unleashed over the nightmare unfolding in New England.

Indictments of Catholic Priests came fast and furious from 1992-1993. Within the year, twenty nine hundred miles away, in August of 1993, a confidential case report completed by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services was leaked to Hard Copy television. Within hours a British tabloid sold copies to reporters for $750 each. Dramatic headlines offered lurid speculation around allegations of sexual molestation. By September 1994, police officials had interviewed more than 400 witnesses when prosecutors announced that no child molestation charges would be filed. Former employees who first testified that they never witnessed anything sexual were only too happy to recant and claim that they had witnessed something after their extortion attempts failed.

While Jackson had not yet become the threat that Lennon remained as a revolutionary activist, one would have to concede that stopping his momentum could have easily been an underling factor in the timing of the second set of charges. Indeed, only a “child molester poster-boy” as large as the Grand Canyon, could effectively divert public attention so that collective anger against the Catholic Church would not insure its ultimate and speedy demise.

ackson appears to have been a handy and convenient target for an establishment in desperate need for a scapegoat to spare the legions of Church leaders that “kept horrific tales of abuse out of the public eye through an elaborate culture of secrecy, deception, and intimidation.

By the end of 2002, it was clear that we were not dealing with one or two isolated incidents. Some 1,200 priests had been accused of abuse nationwide. “[R]epeat abusers, including priests who traded drugs for sex with minors, fathered children, and physically assaulted their victims:” were known predators that church officials shuffled from parish to another-- where they abused again.

In April 2004, Jackson was charged. According to Rolling Stone Magazine Jackson’s trial was nothing less than a zoo and a freak show. “The prosecution's case [boiled] down to this: In a panic over negative publicity, Jackson conspires to kidnap a boy and force him to deny acts of molestation that in fact never happened, and then he gets over his panic just long enough to actually molest the child at the very moment when the whole world is watching.”

You decide?

I think he was not a molester at all...He was too caring person to be a molester. I have been a fan of his for 22 years and seen enough to convince me that he was an innocent caring loving person.

He was a true humanitarian...There are a lot of scumbag celebrities out there and all they do is to look nice and change lovers and cause scandals to attract attention and be in the news and there is nothing they are good for other than that!

In order to understand MJ you need to imagine yourself working since age 5!!!! All that attention, all that scrutiny all the time...Also incredible success...This is a coctail of events enough to shift any "normal" to a different level of normal....I say normal because I do think he was more normal than most given the circumstances...

The only thing I am upset about is him getting hooked on drugs. I keep asking myself what might have possessed him to do that or what got him into drugs...Yet, I must say he still did his best to give the right message to the youth about drugs, even if he was a victim of them, which I respect.

I think his talent will be remembered forever. In a way I see him like the Mozart of today...Saying that Mozart wasn't exactly a guy who conformed to what was considered to be the "normal" at the time, was he????

Perhaps it is part and parcel of being this gifted as well...

You answered your own statement "I keep asking myself what might have possessed him to do that or what got him into drugs." MJ got addicted to drugs- as you stated...he started working at the age of 5, all attention was on him with scrutiny, he had incredible success...this is a coctail of events enough to shift any "normal" to a different level of normal. This is your answer! He had everything, yet he had nothing! He had no other recourse to mass the pain that he had psychologically and physically. He did not set out to be addicted to prescription drugs. He hated to take prescription (drugs)! However, because he was a perfectionist and worked over and beyond all that he did....he surffered body aliments that required prescription drugs, and again along with pyschological issues that he internalized. Believe me when I say that he did not want his addiction to get out of control. He was very embarrssed before the addiction consumed him. He fought hard for many, many years to kick it.

Michael Jackson wasn't a child abuser. The kids who accused him will soon be writing books and trying to get film deals to make a bit of cash out of the whole sordid sorry story.

I suffer from vitiligo since I'm five years old. At the age of 30, my whole body is white and depigmented and my mom used to try and use make-up to cover the blotches but than stopped as I had allergic reactions from some products. So yeah, I'm whiter than a blanket and have to avoid the sun at all accounts.

My husband's white and I'm mixed race. We have a beautiful little daughter born with jet-black hair and blue eyes. She's two now and her hair's changed to blonde.

Neither my husband or I have blue eyes and everyone swore that my daughter's eyes will change...Does it matter though?

Michael Jackson adored his kids. He was compassionate and loveable and wanted to believe the best about everyone. He gave to charities and wanted to save the world. Many of us want to do that, but Michael actually tried to make a difference by giving himself unconditionally to others...And all he got back was abuse.

I love you Michael Jackson...I hope that your children would be well-looked after and I'm sure that your true fans will let them know what a wonderful person you were!!!!
