Sorry, no gushy words for Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson, pop star/child molester is dead at age 50. Sorry I don't have any gushy words. The 24 hour media is winding up for a bonanza of grieving fans and mounds of flowers.
Channel 12 announced that they will have more about Jackson's 'life and legacy' at 10.
Jackson settled a lawsuit for $15,000,000 back in the 90's in a molestation case.
In 2003 he faced four counts of molesting a minor, four counts of intoxicating a minor, one count of abduction, and one count of conspiring to hold the boy and his family captive. He was found not guilty, mainly because the jury realized that the mother had set the child up for the abuse so she could go for a big settlement. That did not expulcate his guilt, but it did disgust the jury to such an extent that they felt more contempt for the mom than for Jackson.
If you want to celebrate his big heart and his great art, go somewhere else.
