Portrait Of A Pedophile –

For the past few weeks the world has gasped with shock and disgust over the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland”. Yes it’s disgusting, but shocking? Hardly. In 2004 I wrote the below
article about the former perv of pop Michael Jackson while the creep was still alive.
“If it quacks like a duck, it’s usually a duck. Likewise, if a grown man admits that he sleeps with
children, he’s usually a pedophile. Especially if one of those children comes forward as in the 1993
case, and specifically details the crime. Pardon me if I sound accusatory but after viewing “Living With
Michael Jackson” I would have to assume that OJ Simpson has a stronger leg of defense to stand on.
For years it was considered cute when Jackson would carry around former TV child star Emmanuel Lewis as if he was a lap puppet. Unfortunately, Lewis had to leave Jackson’s twisted Peter Pan
world because much like the story in “Puff The Magic Dragon” he grew up. These days Jackson has
three of his own children to “entertain” him. During the documentary they are portrayed as nothing
more than toys for Jackson to play with, appearing to be no different than the animals he keeps in his
petting zoo.

To make matters worse, Jackson’s inappropriate obsession with hiding his children’s faces with
Mardi Gras-style masks and heavy veils is so disturbing that it’s difficult to imagine how these children
have remained in his care. The sadness and seriousness of the documentary hits home when Bashir
tells of one of the children’s claim that they have no mother. Jackson himself admits that the children
are not permitted to see their mother

Thanks in part to his incredible talent, we accepted Jackson’s behavior as nothing more then an
eccentric pop star’s quirky ways. When 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin became Jackson’s best buddy
and the pair was often seen vacationing in the Caribbean, we looked upon it as nothing more than
another photo op for the tabloids. When Jackson built an amusement park in his back yard it was described to me by his close friend Brooke Shields as “…a sad display of lost youth.” Lost youth? Peter
Pan from hell is more like it!

Yet, despite all we know about Jackson, he continues to entice star-struck parents and their
children into his deviant web. This awful truth was made evident on February 7th when viewers of
the documentary witnessed another young boy, Gavin Arvizo, 12, who’s been lavished with gifts and
affection by Jackson only to end in unchaperoned sleepovers. According to Jackson, the parents are
kept in a guest house far away from the sickness that has consumed Jackson’s thirst for children. It’s
within reason to debate who should spend more time in jail: Jackson or the parents?

As the documentary mercifully came to an end, Jackson grew more and more agitated at the
tough questions posed by Bashir. Finally, Jackson’s weird behavior gave way to a tearful assessment
of the condition many American children find themselves in. “People don’t even eat with their fathers
any more, or their mothers. The family bond has been broken. It’s an outcry for attention [when] kids
are going to school with guns. They want love, they want to be touched, they want to be held … I’m
just very sensitive to their pain.”

He went on: “Like I said before, and I’ll say it a million times: I’m not afraid to say it. If there were
no children on this Earth, if someone announced all kids were dead, I would jump off the balcony
immediately. I’m done. I’m done.”

That’s nicely said, Michael, but no matter how much money you have, no matter how powerful or
protected you are, you can’t sugarcoat child abuse. Regardless of whether or not you were denied a
childhood of your own, you can’t make up for it now by having slumber parties with young boys who
are infatuated with your fame and kindness. Enough is enough, it’s time to put away your toys and
grow up. More importantly, it’s time to give your own children — who you have unbelievably been
kept from their mother — a shot at a normal life. Hopefully, it’s not too late for Prince Michael I, Prince
Michael II and Paris

Rather than singing music, maybe it’s time for Michael Jackson to face the music.”
Looking back he got off easy

Burn in hell, Michael!
