So despite Jacko sleeping in bed with all these other boys he just happened to sleep on the floor with this one. Please quit with the BS.
That is what Gavin himself said on the Bashir documentary and on the rebuttal tape and also what he told his school teachers, Child Services, LAPD and Sneddon's own investigators. It was only months later after visiting a civil lawyer that he changed his story. No one has alleged that they had to coax the allegations out of him so why did he not say anything to any of those people? If it was true, once he had decided to talk, why did he not report it to the police or any of those other people?

Nothing in my post is theory - it's all factual and supported by the evidence, unlike yours.
If a father thinks his son is gay and has no problem with it, and likes the son's 'lover'(as Evan claimed he did), why would he have a problem with his son being offered a chance in a lifetime opportunity to travel and see the world with his 'partner'?
If Evan believed Jordan was in a mutual sexual and romantic relationship and he had no problem with it, then he must also have acknowledged and accepted that Jordan was emotionally and sexually mature and happy and that he was starting the transition to a life beyond his family environment, as all people do when they find themselves a partner. Why then would a trip away for a month or two bother him so much? If he was fine about his son's sexuality and liked his 'lover' he would have been supportive of the son he professed to care about so much. Why would he think that he was 'losing' Jordan? He even told his ex-wife June that Jordan's friendship with MJ meant that Jordan wouldn't have to worry for the rest of his life.
Evan had not had care and control of Jordan for years and had paid him little attention in the period before he made his allegations. June Chandler confirmed in her court testimony that Evan was neglecting Jordan in that period as his spare time was spent working on a screenplay. Why would he 'panic' about a trip away for Jordan when he was too preoccupied to spend time with him anyway?
Your suggestion that a father would be perfectly fine with an assumption that his 13 year old son was having a sexual relationship with an adult and would say nothing at all, to either of them, is most certainly NOT plausible.
Gavin and MJ did not share a bed. Gavin and his brother Star slept in the bed, MJ and his friend Frank Cascio slept on the floor. Gavin denied any molestation 4 times, to Child Services, his school head, LAPD and to police in Sneddon's own jurisdiction. It was only after the Arvisos realised they had been ousted from the gravy train, and after they had talked to civil lawyers that they decided to make allegations. The molestation claims were just as ridiculous as the rest of the trumped up charges. The timeline was nonsensical and changed considerably between the indictment and the trial. The boys' testimonies contradicted each other and even their own from previous testimony. They were good actors and well-practised and scripted liars. Their claims were contradicted by many people they'd come into contact with, including Neverland staff, other celebrities, their school teachers and people who'd had experience of them in the past.
So Culkin is denying a sexual relationship with MJ? What about all the others? Are they all lying too?
So you are a mindreader now? Nothing is theory? You know what was in the minds of all these people you mention? Your cocksureness belies tentativity of your position. At least I admit I am not sure and am only making a best guess.

What exactly from my post no. 358 do you think is just theory? What is not supported by facts and evidence? Care to expand?

A prime example - when he held Blanket over a hotel balcony rail for a couple of seconds, the media went into overdrive and the incident was portrayed as the crime of the century.
No, at it's core it was portrayed as another example of MJs narcissism.

Jordan Chandler alleged that MJ molested him and that he had also told him that other boys would perform sex acts with him. This suggested that MJ's sexual interest and preference was for boys and so the police investigation and media reporting focused on this assumption.
Blanca Francia saw the financial opportunity that a suggestion that her son was also one of his 'boys' would give her and agreed to make such suggestions on a tabloid TV programme in exchange for $20,000. Then Sneddon's investigators approached Jason, got him alone, told him that MJ was molesting Macauley Culkin as they were speaking and that he had to help stop him, and pressured and bullied him into alleging that MJ had also touched him.
Janet Arviso had 2 boys. She could have accused MJ of molesting her daughter (after all, she had previously accused her husband of doing so) but she knew what the assumptions about MJ were and so the obvious choice was to involve Gavin, who's illness had been the reason why MJ had invited the family to the ranch in the first place.

Oh yes, that week spent displaying his collection of girlie mags and heterosexual DVDs to the jury really proved their point, didn't it.
