Revisiting Michael Jackson

    When Michael died, lots of people defended him, saying he wasn't a child molester.

    He was misunderstood. He was asexual. He was child like. It was all innocent.

    The accusers were in it for the cash.

    Seeing how the Sandusky & Fine stories have played out, has anyone reconsidered the Michael Jackson accusations?

    Broken families. Vulnerable kids. Generous gifts. Innocent "horseplay" and "sleepovers".

    Sound familiar.

    I've always thought he was guilty. Nothing has ever changed that.

    Jacko was a perv's perv. If Conrad Murray was Sandusky's doctor and killed him, he'd be a hero.

    And, like Sandusky, while never admitting to abuse, he strenuously defended the relationships, his feelings, and his actions.

    These were not inappropriate relationships in either MJ's or Sandusky's opinion.

    I always enjoyed MJ the entertainer, thought he was great. But I never bought his story. Too inappropriate to be anything but wrong. Too much $$$ paid.

    Only difference that I would cite between MJ and Sandusky, and to me its huge, MJ was a tortured soul who was deprived of his childhood by his hard-driving dad and I could see how he always wanted that childhood he never got.

    Sandusky is just a monster who abused his position to prey on little kids.

    THat's why they are pervs, deviants and dangerous. They don't know right from wrong and Jacko was enabled by some of the most powerful people in the entertainment business

    Jacko was still sticking his penis inside little boys, no empathy from me.

    Would it surprise anyone if Sandusky was abused as a child? His father's story sounds a lot like his own.

    Just like Sandusky was enabled by the entire PSU community.
