    If he really did abuse children he should be put away. They have to prove it though - it's not a crime to be weird.

    I don't know whether Mike is guilty or not, I am not familiar with the case and that is for the courts to decide.

    I do remember this quote (paraphrased) from him, at the beginning of all this - When asked why he was so f***ed up as to sleep with little boys, he turned around and said " I just happen to like to sleep in the same bed as these boys, it is you who insist on making it seem like something f***ked up is going on - shame on you."

    Pretty good answer, if you ask me...

    I don't see Michael as being all that powerful. He has no effect on my life. I feel sorry for him, a very sad situation all around. This this case all are losers. I feel bad for the jurors also, can't imagine doing this for six months.

    That's the problem - noone will ever leave him alone. I have mixed views on the case. Something about him (not the face,voice etc) makes me think he's guilty. And then something about the mother makes me think she's out for a quick buck. Whatever happens there will be more of these against him. How many has he settled out of court so far? Too many people will see him as a get rich quick vehicle. I feel sorry for Jacko - such a great talent thats been wasted over the years.

    I voted undecided. Have to be honest, don't know all the facts. My prayer is that all the fact will be given into evidence. Somehow the jurors can be objective and deliver the proper verdict.

    Who cares?

    Michael Jackson is a freak plain and simple. Why should we, the man and women who actually work for survival care about someone like him. It has gotten to the point that celebrity status is like the nobles of hundreds of years ago. Those kind of people are clueless to what life is. They think money can buy anything, wrong. Look at him, a lonely boy surrounded by acres of toys. He probably could not hold a conversion with an adult. Feel sad, nope. Just to be fair, his accuser sounds like a loser, too. As far guilt or not, hopefully guilty. That way the main stream media will have something to do. Since they don't bother reporting any news. Had to throw that in, can't stand Network TV news and newspapers.

    Michael jackson should be castrated cause he is a paedophile and should be victim to capital punishment.

    Legally, that isn't a fact as of yet. Even though the evidence I've heard does skew towards that, in this country a person is innocent until proven guilty.

    Why would you say that? Don't get me wrong, if he did do these things to these children, then that is sick and wrong. But I don't think it is so horrible enough that is deserves capital punishment. He didn't kill anyone. If he is convicted of the charges against him, prison time is appropiate, but not life in prison or the death penalty.

    In my view, I'm not sure what to think. I am hoping he is innocent. But if he is not, then he much be punished.

    There are more important things/people in this world to take care about, of course it's sad that such things happen to kids (if happened, I don't know), but if it did, because of being a public symbol he should receive the worst punishment the court can give...

    iMacs next tuesday? :D

    (I couldn't resist, didn't say PB because it was just updated) ;)

    He did that sh-t!

    He'll get off though. But, imagine if he was convicted and was in prison: NO make-up, NO hair treatments... :eek:

    I actually feel sorry for the guy. My gut feeling is he's guilty of being naïve, and probably little else.

    The poll needs an extra button - innocent until proven guilty.

    as much as i hate Michael Jackson as a human being, as well as his music, and as much as i like joking about this whole situation; i don't think he did it.

    its just some money grabbing bums trying to get some money because they either have mental problems or just dont want to work.
