I didn't mean normal cos prisons aren't normal (just couldn't think of another word)!

probably should have said state prison along with all the other criminals. . . . .

Kristie he will probably have some posh prison floor all to himself.kitted out with a recording studio.

I say lock him up in a 10 foot by 6 foot cell with a hard bed,toilet and washbasin.

I don't know about this...

I reckon he's probobally inocent...just seriously screwed in the head

I don't think he is even capable of hurting a kid, cos in his messed up head, he is one.

He just thinks he's having a fun sleepover with his friends and doesn't think their is anything strange of perverse about it.

No doubt, the guy is a bonna fide fruit & nut cake, but that doesn't make him a child molestor, just an easy (stupidly rich) target. My fear is that he will be put away as part of the worlds panic about pedophiles and to make an example of him...thats just not right!

And if he is found guilty (or perhaps even if he isn't)he belongs in a "clinic" where he can be helped with the very real mental problems he suffers from, not in a state prison!

Remember, we are talking about more than 20yrs behind bars

I don't know if he will be found guilty, but I think he is guilty. It's hard because I grew up listening to his music and absolutely adoring him.

What led me to my conclusions about his guilt were a long time in coming. I know he and his handlers say that all the accusations are about the money, but if we always believe that every rich person is always being "shaken down", then that would sort of give them a free pass to do what they want, wouldn't it? So, although I look at the money issue, I don't think that is the only aspect we should look at.

Then we have the accuser's mother, and I genuinly think she is a nut, and might indeed be interested in a little cash. She quite obviously did not have the best interests of her son at hand. But just because she is a weirdo doesn't mean that Michael did not abuse her son. I might say, a person who chooses to sexually exploit children would have much better luck with a child from a dysfunctional family, then someone from a more "normal family". I hope I am more "normal" and would NEVER let my children stay all night with a grown man in his bedroom. To do that I think is definitely parental neglect, no matter how much a child Michael Jackson makes himself out to be.

It does seem curious that there have been a series of "experiences" with young boys that have gotten Michael into trouble. All the boys were about the same age when Michael befriended them, and it seems the interest Michael holds for them "wains" as the years tick by and they become more like young men.

It is also curious, that he never laviishes his attentions on girls. Only young boys.

It seems that there is a grooming process that goes on with each of the young boys. There is a separation from their dysfunctional mothers, ever increasing time alone with Michael, perks (toys),perhaps alcohol, etc.

I do not care that he says "I never had a chilhood" therefore "I am interested in young boys for friends". This is not a credible statement. I have never seen a grown man, who was looking for fulfillment with young boys, that didn't have another agenda.

And the most telling thing to me is this: Michael has been dealing with people making these accusations for years and years. If what he was doing was truly innocent, then I think he would just cut it out for propriety sake. But no matter how much trouble it causes, he keeps on coming back for more. If people I trusted told me it could be construed wrong, or could be harmful to the children, and I did not have another agenda I would quit, for goodness sake! He can't because he has a lustful need for these relationships.

It made me want to vomit when I saw him holding hands on tv with the boy saying "it's the most loving thing in the world to share your bed with a child". That is ridiculous. If you truly "love children" and want what is best for them, you set boundaries that you know will be protective of their emotional health.

I do think he is guilty as charged, but have tried to look for reasons to say otherwise. I just can't find any. I hope they send him to jail.

Okay, it seems that in the next 60 minutes we are going to know the answer. The jurors have come to their verdict. More to come!!!

So far, 6 first counts...NOT GUILTY (in all)
