Don't listen to the press : LUSENET : Michael Jackson : One Thread

Dear Michael,

The news is trying to destroy a good man in my opinion. I do not see where you are anything other than what the public have made you........a private person and a loving human being. Being a philantripisit( spelling ?) have always mystified those who have nothing to give back to the world. Keep up the good work you do and turn your ears and eyes from the news.

Many more love you and your works than those who want to make you out to be something you are not. I can understand a one who would hide their kids, You have to protect them from the crazies in the world who would do them harm or try to take them for a ransome.

Connie A person who stills believes in you

Michael Jackson was a victim of extortion. Pure and Simple. 1. In 1993 Michael Jackson ...[after searching his home and taking several boxes of photographs and videotapes] "A source from the police department told the Los Angeles Times, "There's no medical evidence, no taped evidence...The search warrant didn't result in anything that would support a criminal filing. Fact. 2. It was learned that the boy's father, Evan Chandler, was a Beverly Hills dentist who wished he was a screenwriter. He had recently had a screenplay made into a movie that was based on an idea of his son's. The boy's parents, married in 1974, divorced in 1985 and were both now remarried and were involved in a bitter custody battle for the boy. It was also learned that Chandler was delinquent in his child support payments by $68,400. The boy's mother, who was with the boy on his visits with Michael, first learned of the allegations from police, not from her son or his father, and was completely shocked. She said she had no indication anything untoward was going on. But what doesn't fit in this case is that the boy repeatedly chose to visit Neverland over scheduled visits with his father...Jordy then complained that his father always wanted him to sit in the house and write screenplays, and that his father just wanted money. [Jordy made these statements during an interview with investigator Anthony Pellicano.] It was reported that Chandler asked Michael Jackson to set him up with film projects in the amount of $5 million per year for four years, for a total of $20 million, or he would go public with child abuse allegations. When his offer was refused by Michael Jackson, the father became furious.

3. 'I've seen so many extortion attempts against the Jackson camp and they never turnout to be worth anything.' Taraborrelli told Time magazine that in researching his book on Jackson, 'every damn butler, housekeeper, chauffeur and chef wanted $100,000 for their insights into his private life.

4. The recent outcry by the media/press has been spawned by Gloria Alldren the former laywer of the the chandler boy. ...Gloria Allred, an attorney hired on August 31 to represent the boy, held a press conference on September 2 declaring that, 'my client wants to have his day in court.' Within a few days of her assertion about her client that, 'he is ready, he is willing, he is able to testify. Gloria withdrew from the case and refused to disclose why. I know why; Because Michael Jackson was wrongfully accused.

MJ should fake his death because he'll end up making more money and live a private life of ease. Besides, we all know you can make more money dead than you ever do alive.
