Thank you for the response. I agree that the media tends to take a simplistic view of Michael Jackson's story and to consistently portray him as a "freak." I think that, as with any other human, it's a much more complex situation. And I firmly believe that abuse has shaped his life to a great extent. I can't speculate on his guilt or innocence regarding abuse of children, since confidentiality agreements prevent the facts of the case from being made public. However, I think that it's important to keep an open mind and not to jump to conclusions in the absence of evidence. And I still firmly believe that, regardless of the truth of those allegations, Michael would benefit from counseling, which is always helpful for those who have been abused.

I feel sad for people who don't see both sides to a human being. Especially someone they've never even met. This man's honesty is not an opportunity to make yourself feel better about what might be lacking in your own life. He is honest about is abuse and honest about what he's trying to do with children to promote less of what he endured growing up. Their are alot of money humgry people in this world. It's called greed. Did you ever wonder why the parents of the boy who claims he was molested by Michael chose not to take him to court and sentence him to pay for this alleged crime knowing it would deter him from molesting more children? They chose not to care for other children that might possibly be molested by him, as their son claims, but chose a huge amount of MONEY. Michael has money enough to feed 3rd world countries, so it was easier to set the trash out of his life then have them drain energy in court. The worse of the two involved would be the people who let a molester pay them off and not follow through court procedings for the children in this world that visit him. So, why? Maybe Michaels not a molester but a decent human being with loads of money that can attract greedy people. Thank You and may peace be with you.
