Remembering Michael Jackson

Friday, June 26, 2009 at 1:34pm

City Paper music writer Ron Wynn says that Michael Jackson didn’t need artificial titles or unpredecented record sales to validate his greatness, though his remarkable achievements certainly merited that type of recognition.

But his death Thursday at 50 in Los Angeles ignited a worldwide furor as fans realized they would never again see the incredible moves or hear the exuberant singing other than on record.

I am quite sure that all the kids he molested will never forget him, thank God he will never molest another child.

Do you have proof that molested any children?

Proof? Let's see, he said "sleep overs" were A-OK and let them drink wine, calling it "Jesus Juice". Oh, and they were 10 years old. He called himself "Peter Pan".
At 40, sleeping in bed with strangers who are 10 or less is SICK.
And the "proof" let OJ off of 1st degree murder. I guess DNA, motive, and opportunity was irrelevant.

He never was found guilty.

Now maybe for the remorse of his death Chandler decides to tell us the truth. ” I never meant to lie and destroy Michael Jackson but my father made me to tell only lies. Now i can’t tell Michael how much i’m sorry and if he will forgive me ”.

Hey Titan, do you have proof he didn't molest any children?
