Bad Judgement

Why hasn’t the public or the courts arrested and tried Joe Jackson for terrorizing the family; crimes against Michael and his family? It is sleaze and money and influence that only this doctor is being called out. Joe was a pimp and used his children to get rich. Hello? This is a witch burning which is a waste of tax payer’s money when in truth it is the Father Joe Jackson who is guilty and should be in court for being an abusive task master who damaged his family irreparably. That we are wasting time on this Doctor both in the media and in court is lame. What is he guilty of really being greedy and maybe having questionable ethics etc…do we care and must he be tried for murder? How rich is it that Joe was the loudest one to bang the drum to get this guy in court ewwww. Someone please call Joe Jackson out. Watching a bit of the Martin Bashir documentary of MJ was sadder the second time. He was obviously so split. Shattered both as a human being and within his sexuality (straight/ gay) and it was obvious he had deep psychic scars. MJ was a brilliant show man a professional dance and song machine. Yet he suffered as well as his family, all of them from a long list of defensive coping mechanics. It is a truth that extreme abuse creates coping mechanisms. On the show with Bashir, Michael lists some of it (the abuse) and tries to diminish some of it too and it is obvious it was horrid. Just look at how secretive they are and weird the entire family every single one is damaged. I suppose watching this trial unfold and its wastefulness is another part of how we hold celebrity to a different standard than the average person and now we waste millions trying a man that the wealthy celebrity hired; a medical doctor to administer his drugs that eventually killed him. Seems cut and dry really, do we have to imagine that MJ wasn’t trying to destroy himself, is it a stretch? I am of the school that the only man who should be on trial is Joe the father who battered the boys into submission to fill his greasy pockets. It is shameful and this trial a gigantic waste.

You make a great point, but unfortunately there is no case. It's not against the law to be a total @sshole, even if your existence makes the lives of those around you more miserable. Joe Jackson was Dr. Frankenstein, and Michael was his monster. Joe created him. Yes, God gave him his natural talent, but Joe pushed him to become a performance machine... emphasis on machine.

What do your try a man on forty years after the fact when his brutality, while destroying the psyche of his whole family, allowed that fractured people to see do and experience things that people who grew up in Gary during that time never did. The worst "crime" any of his sons ever committed was when Jermaine changed record labels (no, I don't believe Michael was a child molester). They are weird people, but not bad people. They are loving of each other and of humanity... much more so than many normal people.

I would not wish a Joe Jackson on anyone. But his cautionary tale is enough. We got the message. How Richard Williams did it with Venus and Serena is good, how Joe did it is psychotic. To give him any more undeserved attention than he's already gotten will only continue to give him a platform to validate his actions. If he were convicted, jail wouldn't change him. He's crazy, and crazy folks think they are right. Between the sexual misconduct accusations and the Wacko Jacko headlines, Michael's legacy has been tarnished enough. Give the Dr. two years for criminal negligence, and ignore Joe until and including his death. They don't even deserve to be footnotes in history.
