You must be joking,
I don't care what profession be it a singer, or an out of work person, or the pope, same rules apply,

He's dead & can't defend himself. I was never a fan of his but I do believe he should be left alone. It must be very hurtful for his children with stuff like this surfacing again

Jimmy Saville couldn't defend himself either.

So is Jimmy Saville. Justice for the victims trumps any hurt the family might feel.

Michael Jackson was already cleared of charges by a court. Several of the big name kids he was friends with to this day go on the record stating nothing happened.

Huge difference between Jackson and Saville.

There was more than enough evidence to set up the Jimmy Savile inquiry.

There is no such evidence with Michael Jackson. If there was there would be an inquiry. If there was evidence these 30 something adults making the claims would sue the Jackson estate in a civil court. They love to do this in the states

Jackson settled a civil case in 1993 for $22 million.

I sacked a guy for stealing from the till. Had it on cctv. He brings me to labour court. Arbitrator advised me to make a payment to him as a full hearing could have me not being able to work for several days due to court appearances. I paid. I sacked him because he stole & I had video proof but I payed.

Sometimes paying is easier. A mistake in Jacksons case imo. You will also notice that it was an out of court settlement & he was not found guilty nor did he admit guilt.

The law of the land says that he's not guilty & is entitled to the assumption of innocence

His accusers today aren't bringing his estate to court. There is no evidence for an inquiry or investigation.

Never liked his music and I thought him a dope but you have to look at these things and look at the bigger picture. There is no inquiry, investigation or civil action. Why do you suppose that is?

There’s nothing innocent about a grown man sleeping in the same bed as young boys, having alarms and censors fitted so he knew when people were approaching his bedroom, and having his whole house kitted out like a children’s fantasy wonderland. He was a paedophile.
