Jackson To Stop Sleeping With Children

The above headline highlights just how bizarre this whole case has been.

Precisely why some parents allowed their children to sleep with a middle aged man, or why he would wish to, has never been answered satisfactorily.

I can't but help speculate that had Jackson been poor, then the parents would never have allowed their children to "sleep over".

Money and celebrity seems to allow people to break normal codes of behaviour.

Be that as it may, Jackson's lawyer Tom Mesereau has stated that Jackson will now no longer sleep with children.

How very wise!

Quote:

"He's not going to do that anymore..He's not going to make himself vulnerable to this anymore."

Jackson's official website, www.mjjsource.com, equates the acquittal with; Martin Luther King's birthday, the day Nelson Mandela was freed and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Hubris is a dangerous reaction, and often comes to bite you back.

There are two lessons to be learned from this sorry tale of depravity, greed, manipulation and dishonesty:

1 Middle aged men should not sleep with children

2 Parents should not allow middle aged men to sleep with their children

The thing is, we all knew that anyway.

    Michael Jackson is a waste of skin, and I strenuously object to him (it) wasting my oxygen. That freak should have never been allowed to exist. He's a perfect candidate for 'poster boy' for Planned Parenthood.

    I am not afraid to sign my name. If you don't like it, face me, sweet cheeks.

    You know my youngest great uncle would often have sleep overs with all of us kids...boys and girls..groups of us or sometimes just one or two.We often slept in sleepingbags spread open all over the floor.Sometimes he was beside me and other times he was beside one of my sisters or cousins. He was 20+ years my senior and according to his wife had a healthy supply of soft porn in the bathroom. Nothing ever happened between us boys or with my sisters or any of our cousins.My uncle and his wife were childless and he loved kids.He was like a big kid himself and taught us all sorts of silly kid stuff.He was actually my coach at a midnight teenage "panty raid" on the neighbours daughters when I was 15!Was he a molester?NO! Did our parents approve of our sleepovers?Yes.

    Don't go saying it was OK because he was family.Family member are most often the abusers.
    So in our case we don't find it all that weird for a grown man to have sleepovers with young and preteen kids.No one would have though of accusing him of something as disgusting as child molestation.He's been dead for 7 years now and I'm sure he'd have something to say about people deciding that the sleepovers were a telltale sign of misconduct.
    I'm not saying MJ didn't do anything wrong, just that the sleepovers don't mean squat.
