Profile of a Pedophile: Does Michael Jackson fit?

There are 64644 comments on the crime.about.com story from Dec 9, 2008, titled Profile of a Pedophile: Does Michael Jackson fit?. In it, crime.about.com reports that:

Pedophiles can be anyone -- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race. However, pedophiles often demonstrate similar characteristics, but these are merely indicators and it should not be assumed that individuals with these characteristics are pedophiles. But knowledge of these characteristics coupled with questionable behavior can be used as an alert that someone may be a pedophile.

TOm sneddon tried to create a story to sell to a jury , only it did not contain facts. It is more believable and understandable , that a person of michaels notoriety would have a security system close to the familys sleeping quarters where they were the most vulnurable. IT IS MORE believable that given his fear of safety he would have locks and all kinds of alarms near the place where he slept. It is not believable that such a security measure would be taken for any thing else Tom sneddon was desperate and trying to make anything look sinister. The jury did not buy the picture tom sneddon was trying to paint it simply made no sense. To them. This was an extremely private man. Sneddon knew this. When no evidence turned up after the huge raid at neverland sneddon was embarrassed. And had to face the public. All he had left was to embarrass jackson in a public trial. This was an incredible invasion of privacy.
You are full of contradictions. On one hand, you claim Michael was private but on the other hand you claim he built Neverland so the poor, unfortunate, sick children from the public could come and play. He can't be BOTH!

Like I said, most of you don,t understand michael jacksons life or how bad it was with joe jackson. Most of you do not know how dysfunctional the jackson brothers are.. HOW do you know what kind of rehabs , settlements , and craziness has gone on in their personal lives? Th e focus was always on MIchael. The pressure was always on michael. No child performer has worked harder than michael jackson. No child performer has been mentally, physically, and emotionally abused more as a child at the hands of their father, than michael. Joe did alot of horrendous inhumane things to michael that that for the sake of katherine were never revealed.. MOST of you do not know the horrendous ubbringing michael delt with
Boo Freaking Hoo.

Millions of people grew up in homes ten times worse than this guy did & they didn't make a career out of whining about their childhoods. Michael played his fans like a cheap violin & they gobbled up his sob stories & helped him sink lower & lower.

Michael didn't grow up because his fans were too happy helping him wallow in his misery.

good points. My father was a hells angel. I just wish I had the problems michael had to deal with. Not only did my father beat me but when I got older I had to fight him from beating my mom and I didn't go crying about my life. I delt with the hand I was given and got stronger from it. I didn't go hiding with the children

Plus my father was a mean drunk. And my mom tried killing herself. Slicing her wrist but I lived and learn and got stronger for it. Like that saying goes what doesn't kill you makes you stronger

People come here to marvel at the excuse making antics of a pedo enabler such as you.

In what way are YOU somehow privy to the 'sealed medical records' of a perverted pop star, genius? You wouldn't happen to be completely stuffed to the gills with BS, would you?

Michael Jackson fans ate him up anything the dolt said. They repeat the line he says regarding the tabloids, "just because it's written in print doesn't make it true". I've seen so many f'loons recite that line. It came straight from MJ.

Michael Jackson was wrong. We don't read tabloids. In fact, at one time he use to like them. So it makes him a hypocrite.

TO eric hartman if what you are saying is true. There are help sites for people like you. Why are you on a michael jackson forum? AND BECAUSE HE WAS OPEN about not enjoying a child hood , could this be something you see in him and possibly relate too? Michael as a 7 or 8 yr old boy was beaten at one point unconscious by his father, this man severely abused him , physically and mentally -- theres alot more the public does not know about such as sealed medical records dating back to the early 60,s MIchael spoke about his lost childhood to educate people how important childhood is and that if children were raised with more love and happiness there would be less violence and no war..
There is a difference between getting a good message across and whinging. Michael moaned and used the whole ''woe is me'' card even when he was living a luxurious life.

He only moaned about his childhood when it suited him - for example when asked about sleeping with boys, he talks about reliving the ''childhood he never had''. Though I fail to see the correlation between sleeping with boys and a good childhood.

Even if you take the pedophile factor out - He would still have to be one of the most selfish, inappropriate, narcissist, spoilt, devious and sinister little man I have ever known of.

THE COMMENT ABOUT MICHAEL "dead man bones " shows us what a mean , insensitve bull-shiter you really are. This makes me doubt your story of abuse due to your lack of empathy and show of cruelty towards another human being. Why dont you go find a mean peoples forum where you belong.
I don't need no help thank u. but believe what u want. U know for a long time I didn't even know my fathers real. Everyone call him by his nickname hoppy. Becauses he had a limp that was a result from a motorcycle crash. Even my mother called him that. But no the only thing me and michael had in common is that we both had f##k up dads. Maybe its just that michael was a pussie where I am not

His fondness for sleepovers was undoubtedly due to happy leftover childhood memories of sharing a room and a bed with his brothers. It's too bad that he didn't realize that such memories must be left in the past, but that doesn't mean he was a pedophile.

I don't think he's the only celebrity who might be called spoiled, and a tendency for self pity was probably just part of his particular personality.

But 'sinister'? That's a bit much.
