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!
"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.
