    oh bog off! the lot of you, you've all been after his blood for months convinced that he was going down, and now AFTER hes been found INNOCENT, you all still wont let it rest!

    the jury knew what they were doing, these were clever ppl! they weighed up the evidence and came to the ONLY verdict that they could of - NOT GULITY.

    just STFU and get over it. :mad:

    I've thought all along that he is innocent, but I am supprised (as I think you'll find most people are) that he was found not guilty on all 10 charges.

    Just wondering what your thoughts are with regards to the Jackson trial being fair or not?



    Whilst I am pleased with the verdict, I think Jacksons fame could have played a part in persuading the jury.



    Imagine a normal man in his 40's living on the outskirts of, I don't know - let's say, Leeds. He sleeps with children in his bed, until someone found out and alerted the police. For one thing, I think the police would judge him and treat him as a child molester.



    Now look at the very similar Jackson trial. Are parents more willing to let the children sleep in the same room/bed as Michael, because of his international superstar status? Is that a protecting factor? He's so famous, he wouldn't do anything to jeopordise it?



    Is it a fair trial, or do they just make allowances?

    I agree with what you said in regards to his fame influencing the jury, but not with your reasoning—because of his celebrity people know him or feel like the know him, they’re aware of how child-like he is.


    One of the jurors who was a mother, said that as a mum she would never condone her child sleeping in the bed as a grown man regardless of who he was, it didn’t sit well with her; she didn’t understand why the accuser’s mother would allow it.

    I’m not sure whether the trial was fair but I feel the verdict was.

    Celebrities just aren't allowed to be convicted for something like that in America

    No, not a fair trial...


    (Original post by Scubar)
    god no, why should his superstar status matter in the first place, he's a human being, he should be subject to the same laws and rights as the rest of us.
    (Original post by Scubar)



    I think he should have gone down and shown celebrities that they aren't so untouchable

    If anything, I thought it was biased the other way. The entire media seemed to be out to get him.


    You’re right, here in the States the media had already tried and convicted him. Only Geraldo Riveria said from the beginning he thought the charges were ridiculous. They're already talking about the accountability of the media, their irresponsibility in covering the case.





    (Original post by Motherless Child)
    Did you see the Sky reconstructions? When I watched it, I thought they were extremely biased in favour of Jackson. Thats my perception of it though.



    Maybe Jackson didn't arrange an out of court settlement because he wanted to show the world he was innocent? Maybe he had had enough of people scamming him for his money, and wanted to settle it the fair way? It's a long shot because I think the opposition had a fairly strong case, but why shouldn't he put up a fight?

    I don’t think an out of court settlement was an option for him this time around.

    i know, but there is nothing we can do is there, perhaps the prosecution might move for a retrial, if that happens they'll just try the whole thing over again, if they don't then they don't,

    grumbling about it now won't change what happened, he's been found not guilty, and while we all might think differently we have to accept the juries verdict
    In America there's something called Double Jeopardy (it was also a movie), a person cannot be tried again for the same crime.

    Porn is not really unusual for men though. Or women for that matter. i know a few who look at it.

    your telling me you dont own any porn or in the very least seen it!? every guy has some porn, but suddenly michael jackson isnt allowed to have any!? give me a break.

    he may like to play with kids and share his bed with them and thats fine, he can do that allllll he wants! becuase THAT isnt illegal. molesting them is. he didnt molest them so get off the guys back!

    I'm fairly sure he only had 70/80 images, which isn't unusual.

    An innocent mans reputation has been dented - is that fair?

    why did he pay in 93? because he COULD thats why. back in 1993 michael jackson was the biggest thing on this planet. his ego at that time was massive, he was going to fight it until his lawyer at the time advised him to settle because he could not guarantee justice would prevail. he was a billionare - whats 20 mill? its chump change to michael jackson. i think he made the wrong move but it was 12 years ago, lets move on...

    yes he had alot of porn, so what? you wanna see how much ive got! damn, ill put MJs collection to shame anyday! and it was HETROSEXUAL PORN before you all start chatting BS,

    his face? what about it? hes maybe gone too far with the surgery, sure he looks different but i would never call him ugly. recently i think hes been looking great!

    ok you all can diss his looks if it makes you feel better but i aint getting dragged into it anymore, i think he looks GREAT and i aint ashamed to say it!

    yes he has slept in the same bed as children, if you think innocently theres nothing wrong with it. if you think sexual, then thats your perogative. michael has always denied that its sexual and the jury agrees with him. end of.
