    I don't think it mentioned it in the article, but in this court appearance that is mentioned, he arrived on crutches. This guy goes from bad to worse.

    The guy is a total idiot...... and so are all his buddies who defended him over that 'dangle a baby from a hotel window' escapade!

    Ha, I wonder if that was for the sympathy vote!

    Yeah, it is truly sad where he has ended up. And one thing I don't understand is where are the women who mothered these children?

    D :(

    Cloned baby? :)

    Maybe the baby has no mother...

    But seriously... anybody who wants to put Michael Jackson up on charges for showing his baby to the crowd is an idiot.

    It wasn't the safest thing to do, but let me ask you... How many of you have ever dropped a baby? I don't think that the odds of that go up based upon how high you're holding him off of the ground.

    Get over it folks. You don't have to like Michael Jackson, but that doesn't give you the right to take away his children.

    I agree with Oldmac, it certainly was not the smartest thing to do, but it doesnt certify taking away his kids, luckily no harm came to the child and unless there is some actual signs of abuse leave the man and his kids alone.

    Action Jackson...

    Interesting article find dukestreet... and valid comments from one and all here.

    Two Things About Attourney Ambition:
    First, Berlin is just a tad outside the California State Attourney's Jurisdiction. This quote from that CNN article points out how the actions were viewed under the relevant laws of Berlin: "Berlin authorities said the actions were not punishable." I really get a bad taste in my mouth when I see politicians using their public offices to make personal comment. She should have made it clear that while she has no jurisdiction, she personally felt the behavior was irresponsible and a mistake. If the California attourney simply prefers Bing and Sinatra, her office isn't the place to make that clear.

    Second, if the California State attourney wanted to make a legal comment about such behavior, she would have to file the appropriate court documents in a German court of law. Seems she's just making a personal comment about the very bad judgement of a parent. How many times has the attourney's good intentioned husband pushed their child on a swing a little too high, or tossed their little tyke into the air (not as bad as dangling your child over a balcony ... but still...) I suppose every parent who puts their child into a car without proper restraints is doing the same thing, but never heard the California State Attourney comment on that, and in many countries around the world, child car seats are considered an unjustified expense.

    To point out why I think the California attorney's reach exceeds her grasp, imagine getting a speeding ticket on the Autobaun in Germany. You are coasting along at a comfortable 250 miles per hour in your super high performance car - which is more than capable of 250 - and you get a ticket. The California attourney hears this, and decides to send the State Troupers (would probably would refuse to respond) to follow you to and from your California doorstep to your California place of work everyday. Or imagine smoking marijuana in Canada or some European countries where it's legal to do so within reason. Does that give the California attourney license to send the ATF on a stakeout of your life?

    I've got to trust the judges of our american courts to judge such complaints according to their merit.

    Definitely not a good move showing a child to a crowd over a fourth floor balcony. It's obvious his pride as a parent got the best of him in the worst way.
