Mayor McCheese says, "Lock up the parents on one charge of greed and 100 counts of stupidity!"
I can't take this anymore. The word is out and the world is reporting on what amounts to nothing more than another adventure of "Michael Jackson's Sex-capades on Ice". And while child molestation is NOT a joke - at least not a funny one - this entire allegation and story isn't either. It's a travesty built on the greed of and stupidity of some parents. Let me explain if you don't know the details:
On Tuesday, November 18, 2003 Santa Barbara investigators searched Mr. Jackson's Neverland Ranch in California for more than 14 hours. The raid was sparked by new child-abuse allegations against the 45-year-old "father" of three. (I'm still waiting for paternity tests - these alleged children of his may just be monkeys in children's costumes.)
"The search warrant indicated that there is an accusation by a 12-year-old boy who says that he was molested and the police are seizing information that they feel is relevant to that accusation," Brian Oxman, a Jackson family lawyer, said.
Now, to fully grasp this we need to go back to August 1993 when Mr. Jackson was accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy. The teenager filed a lawsuit against Wacko-Jacko but it was settled out of court, reportedly for $15-million. NOTE: No criminal charges were filed in that case.
You're probably thinking, "Well, there he goes again. Messing around with little boys." And to which I say, "you're probably right." BUT, here's the thing, this new 12-year-old boy was 2 years-old back in 1993 which isn't quite old enough for Michael's tastes. But his parents must have heard about this on the news and in the papers. They read the accusations of molestation. And any person with any sense can tell you that you're aren't going to pay $15-million dollars for something you didn't do to go away. Seems a little fishy to me.
So WHY then, why, would you ever allow your child to go play "Ride-the-Pony" at Jackson's place? I certainly wouldn't. If your kid's 7th grade teacher was "accused" of molesting one of his students would you let your child go over there and play? Would your feelings change if no charges were made? Hell, would you even want that teacher back at your school? Absolutely not. So why would these parents knowingly risk putting their child in danger?
$MONEY$ and $GREED$
Seriously, these parents were HOPING something like this would happen. And if it didn't happen they were going to find a way to "make it happen." Michael Jackson does have some issues - no shit. Anyone with a monkey running around his house that also doesn't own a Yellow Hat has got to be a little crazy. All the more reason to keep yourself and your kids away from him.
If you really want to know how I feel about it I think charges should be filed against the parents for knowingly endangering the welfare of their child. If you lock your kid in the car while you go go into a grocery store or strip club, your kids can be taken away even if they are unharmed because something could have happened to them.
Really, how far removed is this situation?
