A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 He's still a freak: And that's all I'm gonna say about that.
Ironically, the fact that MJ's a freak may have actually helped save his posterior!
Think about it for a minute...let's say your 46 y/o straight-acting, health nut neighbor has a respectable job, a nice house, an SUV and is civic-minded. This guy coaches little league and donates time during Thanksgiving at the homeless shelter. IOW, he's a rock solid citizen, one you'd be glad to have as a neighbor.
Now let's say this "all-American boy" admits that he periodically invites pre-teens from the homeless shelter to be a guest in his home so they can sample "normalcy." He even let's them spend the night in his bed and then insists it's nothing sexual.
You tell me what would happen...
We expect freakish behavior from a freak and those as rich and eccentric as MJ, get a free pass. It may very well be that MJ didn't have sex with minors, but the same behavior(s) exhibited on the part of a mainstream citizen would land them squarely in jail.
Yeah the DA trumped up the charges, the prosecution's witnesses were not wholly credible and the jury looked like Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band...but ultimately, MJ fit the "freak" part so well, he couldn't possibly have been guilty...
