Have you got any other articles about the second trial that give an honest and well researched account about what happened?
but the real blame should be put on the media for taking the story and running with it.
without the media this dad would've just been some lunatic on a rant
If you read the case files there were other children that came forward but, they did not want to testify or try to get compensation because of the attention/shame they would receive. In the 2005 case I truly believe that the parents put their children in his care hoping that they would be molested.
After millions of dollars were spent by prosecutors and police departments in two jurisdictions, and after two grand juries questioned close to 200 witnesses, including 30 children who knew Jackson, not a single corroborating witness could be found.
I mean come on this is the real world.
As for the topic, might want to check for some form of plagiarism. I've read something eerily similar during his last trial for child molestation on how he's just a poor guy hammered by the world and extorted.
I stand by my assertion that it's "eerily familiar". Sorry if you are offended at my opinion, as you stated it was. But I will not retract it, as it is opinion.
In 1994, during the height of the original Jackson molestation probe, LaToya Jackson told reporters in Israel she'd seen a $1 million check that was written, she said, to buy the silence of the family of a boy--a boy whom the prosecution wanted to claim was abused by her brother. (LaToya Jackson, a former pinup and pitchwoman for the Psychic Friends Network, has since returned to the Jackson family way, telling ABC News this year that her brother is "misunderstood.")
LaToya Jackson recently did an about face and has charged that brother Michael has molested young boys over the years at the family's home and that her mother, Katherine, knew about it. She made her charges first at a news conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, suggesting that "I can't remain silent. I will not be a silent collaborator in his crimes against small, innocent children." She said that she is a victim of child abuse herself and knows how the alleged victims will be scarred for life. She also said her mother had shown her checks that Michael had made out to the families of the boys. "I don't know if these children were apparently bought from the parents by Michael or not."

Do you have young children? Well I am a middle aged man do you mind if they come over and sleep in my bedroom with me. I promise I am a good guy and nothing "bad" will happen. OK with you?
