    Since they choose to say they lied in court, how about charging these "liars" with Perjury and get them to plead guilty and serve jail time.
    Maybe the prison inmates will pump out the truth about their Michael Jackson tale.

    For people saying kids slept in Michael’s bed he slept on the floor and plus he never had a childhood he was always working to be one of the best out there so the kids was basically teaching him how it felt like and y’all have dirty minds so that’s why y’all saying it’s weird he wanted to have fun and you can’t blame him and wade robson is lying because back then he was defending Michael and now he’s not liars always change their story I love you Michael you will always be in my heart ❤️

    If you truly believe in God and in heaven as being in a better place after someone has passed? Then you should know from your beliefs that no one could Disturbed the peace that God has given them!
    It doesn't matter if someone speak on a deceased persons name with disrespect or respect' The fact is... if they are in heaven with the Lord then nothing else in this world matters no words are opinions.
    So if the Lord has given them peace, it doesn't matter what anyone has to say no one can take what he's giving them point blank! So people can now stop saying please let them rest in peace when they feel as if someone is disrespecting the dead's name"

    For the 1st 30 minutes of Safechucks "testimony", when recanting from memory about non-abuse events, conversations, memories etc.. Jimmy's eyes move to his right. Which is where 95% of people naturally look when recanting from memory. EVERY SINGLE TIME Jimmy Safechuck describes the sexual abuse, his eyes look to the left. Which is where 95% of people look when "constructing images".. aka LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH. May God have mercy on your soul James Safechuck, and Wade Robson.

  • duk

    As a human, I understand why people who have been sexually abused don’t tell others so soon about it. Though, how can one really accuse Michael of something that we don’t even know is true? People are known to make accusations towards celebrities. FOLLOWING on that statement, why would they want to make this so public? Huh? Wouldn’t someone who has been sexually abused want to be private about the way they handle things? I don’t mean to come off as disrespectful, but I truly believe these people are looking for attention. They have been on many, many, interviews now, which btw isn’t the mature thing to do, AND THEY ARE MAKING A DOCUMENTARY! If this isn’t a call for attention, I have the slightest clue as to what it is then. This should not be handle in public; it should be handled in private out of respect for ones own decency. Michael is diseased, he can not stand up for himself. Which is just completely wrong! This whole situation is messy, and very unprofessional.

    Their “stories” are based on a sick NAMBLA fantasy-fiction peddled in a book by Victor Guitterez. MJ sued him for defamation & won 2.7 million. Mr. Guitterez promptly fled the country. These two are reciting these sick made up stories chapter and verse. It’s all about money.

    If it quackes like a duck and acts like a duck and hangs with ducks...
    Remove the name Michael jackson..and put Harvey weinsteins name and reassess it opinion...
    Michael was gay he liked boys and he drew them to him and used his fame to do is what it is...
    Michael was still a great entertainer..but he hung with boys..he slept with boys..ect...
    It is what it is...move on
    These kids were abused...period
    It isnt unusual that these now adults were sexually abused..and that they now have understood the truth...something they couldn't understand as an adolescent..makes perfect sense...take money out of picture and not one time would anybody not agree..that his actions toward kids werent normal

    Many say: who would leave their children alone with anyone?
    The truth is many of you already do and will.
    Either at kindergarden/daycare, babysitter, relatives, school teachers, team sport coaches, instructors etc.
    You have no idea and never will know who may be preying on your children, either physical/mental/emotional/sexual abuse.
    Even female teachers can be very abusive w the kids, personally seen it.
    Dont trust anyone!

    one thing He was definitely sex predictor with little boys unfortunately He himself was sexauly abused as child
    His family is to blame especially his father and brother's they are responsible to why he turned out to be hommersexuals Peodiphilar

    if you were a victim of sexual abuse, would you go on a tour of the tv trays to tell the details of the sevices you were subjected to, and you would take a picture with the documentary producer, as if it were a poster movie? In addition, robson recalls being abused just after the failure of the "circus of the sun" and the other safechuck just after robson complains, that's not too much of a coincidence?
    For me, if michael jackson had really abused children, it could be on other children ( even if a really don t believe it )but surely not on these two scavengers

    One year after having been refused by the "cirque du soleil" to be the main choreographer of the show, he lodged a complaint for sexual abuse, that means that if he had been accepted, there would have been no complaint?
    And also an accused of sexual abuse who asks his victims to come to testify for him, with the risk of cracking them during the cross-examination of the prosecutor, you really believe it frankly?

    • observer 33

The only question is how far did he take the molestation

    How can anyone believe that Michael was innocent? The man surrounded himself with little boys. He shared his bed with little boys. I can’t believe that the public allowed for this kind of behavior from a grown man. If it were anyone else that wasn’t famous then they would’ve been arrested in a heartbeat.
    Also, of course the children lied. They were being heavily manipulated.

I remember when I was a kid and when I got a toy from someone I would adore that person. So don't pretend like these kids were aware of what was going on cuz they weren't and that's why they stay quiet, cuz they didn't know better...

    Oprah is transferring her helplessness, anger and guilt (?) over her girls' lack of justice to convicting & annihilating Michael Jackson in the court of public opinion. It is frightening how out of touch she has become, how full of her own gravitas. On balance I have alot of respect for Oprah but she was a journalist, an interviewer and now FACTS, INQUISITIVENESS, and HEALTHY SKEPTICISM are NOT warranted over INCONSISTENT "subjective truths" & $1.5B financial benefits????
    This is a woman who was fooled by Lance Armstrong, by the author of A Million Little Pieces ... her judgement (especially on something so personally painful to her) is not infallible. Annihilating someone's character and labeling them something as heinous as a pedophile warrants due process and intelligent investigation.

    Sorry for his inconditional fans, but nothing in Michael Jackson was normal and/or real: His behavior, his face, disfigured by multiple surgeries, his childish voice, and, first of all (and most creepy), his adiction to surround himself with prepubescent kids, and invite them to sleep in his bed. Why an adult man would want to sleep with children? Those fans are so blinded as abused children mothers were!
