Then I heard about the acquittal and said well good for him, I shall not pass judgment but I hope he's learned his lesson and will at least be more careful in his dealings with kids in the future. That was supposed to be that. End of story!
But then I stupidly read another Jackson article and saw this little blurb:
The Jackson Web site mjjsource.com trumpeted the acquittal with graphics declaring "Innocent" and showing a hand giving a victory sign as a fanfare plays. A scrolling calendar highlights historic events such as "Martin Luther King is born," "The Berlin Wall falls," "Nelson Mandela is freed," and finally, "June 13, 2005, Remember this date for it is a part of HIStory."
Hold up, Hold up, hold up! Ok Martin Luther King is born yep historic moment as its the birth of a man who helped his people, Berlin Wall falls yep another historic moment as its the symbolic end of the cold war, Nelson Mandela's release yep end of an unjust imprisonment and a signal that 'legalized' apartheid is on its way out, June 13th 2005 ummmm? Oh yea June 13th 2005 Michael Jackson is acquitted of child molestation and the greater significance here would be what exactly??
Now see this is a case of hyperbole gone wrong. How the hell does getting acquitted for molesting kids equate with those other events mentioned. I mean seriously what are they thinking? Yea I know its a big moment for Michael personally and some of his fans but those other moments were big in the grand scale of things for the world. What the hell does his release do for anyone? Lots of dudes escape jail time and yea its a big day and they are happy, overjoyed even why wouldn't they be but you don't compare this to world changing events. How is this a world changing event?
And no I don't think Michael actually wrote this or at least I hope not but still his employees are being oh just a tad bit over-zealous shall we say. Don't believe the hype!
