    Do you think Michael Jackson was guilty?

    I don't believe Michael was trying to get into some little boys pants, I believe the little boys parents, were trying to get into Michael's pants and make off with a chunk of his wallet.

    I think he liked to surround himself with kids because they were more honest and did't have motives of getting his money.

    However, when such allegations are made, we must investigate fully to get to the truth and protect our children first, even before the reputation of a superstar.

    He is dead now, so the media vultures will have to find a new superstar to crucify and peddle their cheap journalism.

    My two cents...

    I would like to think not.  I think that he lacked judgment with the people he surrounded himself with.  As Harlan says, people saw an opportunity to get some $$$.  He was a strange, quirky man and he's gone now.  I know his children loved him and we will have to wait until they decide one day to write his biography to see if there was anything weird going on.

    Michael Jackson wasn't quite guilty but what I can say here is that he wanted by all possible means to gratify his fans and most especially the organisers of the gig who mounted so much tension and pressure on him than he could ever cope with.

    I'm not really sure about the first time but he definitely was not guilty the second time.

    Michael was a little eccentric, but I think that is what made him so successful and unlike anyone else. I just can't see a man who spent millions of dollars contributing to charities and developed an amusement park with a cancer treatment facility in his home someone who would be harmful to children.

    I also find it curious the behaviors of the people who accused him. Jordan Chandler, the boy forced to accuse in 1993, became estranged from his father Evan. Evan later committed suicide. The second accuser, a mother this time, not only went to the same lawyer that got the Chandlers 25 million, but also had an extensive criminal background.

    I believe they were very desperate people, exploiting their children for personal, material wealth.

    How sad his heart must have become when his whole life's work was stolen from him and he became a victim of the greed in this world. He was forced to give so much money to a family that didn't deserve it instead of helping those he wanted to.

    I think Michael Jackson did not have a childhood, therefore he tried to live his childhood and all the joys of it, through the children he knew.

    He made some bad choices about children (taking into home, etc.) but do not discount these parents of these children, they were out for money and fame and whatever else they could get from this young man in a child's body.

    No. He was around too many children with no sort of negativity occurring, per the kids.
    I believe the parent's saw a gentle individual, who was a bit eccentric and took advantage of the situation.

    Hmmm....I believe there if he was found guilty he would be in jail. But I really do not understand why he let little boys sleep in his bed room.

      if he was found guilty yes he would be in jail, however just because he was acquitted does not mean he was innocent. Money bought him the jury, and everything else set up ,sad as it is.

    i have to ask, guilty of what . .  . . . . .?

    Whether or not he was guilty really doesn't matter anymore. I never liked the guy when he was alive because that was not my musical taste. However, we found him innocent in court and that should be good enough. I think if we are supposed to view people as "innocent until proven guilty," then he was innocent before the trial, and innocent after. I don't know why people jumped to guilty so quickly before.

    No, I don't think he was guilty of anything other than trusting the wrong kind of people. It is a sad fact that, in life, no matter how good you are to some people, they will stab you in the back for their own personal gain.

    Michael always said in interviews that he missed out on a normal childhood and so he spent his life and his fortune trying to recreate one, including surrounding himself with children, as adults simply didn't understand him. Sadly, his lifelong pursuit to recapture his childhood came at the expense of his reputation and his career.

    The media crucified an innocent man for their own gain, along with many others who turned their back on him. As his brother Marlon said at his memorial, "now they will leave you alone."

    painfully yes and he had the money to cover it up.....love him and his music but really screwed up when it came to the child thing

    I remember some wise advice given to municipal officials by a  barrister who always told Town office holders that
    "The appearance of guilt is as bad as the guilt itself."  He instructed them to stay away from situations that could be interpreted as involving violations of their trust.

    In this sense, Michael Jackson's conduct did have the appearance of guilt.

    Guilty without any doubt, unfortunately the parents cared more about money than their own children, and we all saw the results. . .

    Well at first I didnt think so and now I do, and there is so much the world is about to find out about the lying, cheating, manipulator he was/is., its going to be the biggest story for about 5 months then it will die down.

    Like OJ simpson and Casey Anthony, who were guilty but sadly money bought them acquittal how sad is that when money and greed still overpower love. Especially when it comes to children.

    Now MJ always told the world he was about love then he pays off these kids and makes himself look guilty.

    So yes he is guility.

    Ps Please pray for the innocent children of the horrific tradegy.
