    Michael Jackson was part of almost everyones life in the whole world, there are few people who never heard his name! It affected me a lot when I heard about his death.

    I liked that tribute clip a lot and would like to share it with you!

    Eh... As far as I'm concerned, he deserved to die. Not to be disrespectful or anything, but the guy molested children (well, at least one. The other ones may have been false accusations). He deserved a death worse than this.

    What court found him guilty? The court of the National Enquirer?

    The whole thing kind of stunk of extortion to me. In most child abuse situations you're guilty until proven innocent. I don't really think "Well he paid out 20 million!" is conclusive of anything other than the sad state of this country's legal system.

    Huh? You don't believe he paid 22 million? What source would you believe?

    k, as far as I'm concerned, he did not molest anybody's kids. If the courts decided against it, we're to assume he didn't. if we're supposed to follow the law as it's written, we can't go second-guessing it at times of our choosing, especially when we don't have all the information. Besides, Larry King and a few other people overheard people in public talking about exploiting Michael with molestation charges, but they were never allowed to testify in court against the opposition. Sounds kinda sketchy.

    He was an amazing musician, but it seemed like he was really confused.... RIP i hope

    just found this: http://michaeljacksontonumberone.com
    its a thing set up to see if people think that thriller or bad being at number one would be a good tribute to such an amazing singer. So if you think they should then pass it on to people you know.

    Did you see the man molest a child? Are you the one that was molested? Was there a video of the incident? If no, how are you so sure that the event took place?

    The man is already dead, can't we all just let him rest in peace?

    Can we be sure that he didn't? No. We can't be sure of either. We just have to believe what we choose to believe.

    Not really...

    If he was found innocent then he's innocent. If you believe otherwise you're wrong, and you have no backing for that, because he's already been proven innocent through the legal system. Not believing what has already been proven is pretty stupid, I guess you don't believe women give birth to babies either.

    Are you ****ing retarted? I never said I believed he was guilty I said we should believe what we want. I don't give a **** what the legal system says. Is it always right? No, it's not. Want proof? About 15 years ago a guy got sentenced to life in prison for murdering a child. 14 years into his sentence they did some more DNA testing and found out that he didn't kill the child and was innocent. Oops. I thought it was always right? I thought if they said he was guilty then he was guilty and he without a doubt did it. Oh well. Then again you probably believe everything you're told. That's okay though, the world needs ignorant people.
