I wish death upon no man, but I fail to understand the depression over the death of Michael Jackson. Regardless of the verdict of juries, the evidence was compelling. Have we forgotten that "Not Guilty" is not necessarily innocent?

In my eyes, the case was closed, and I'll never know enough about either side of that story to either agree with or question its outcome. Instead I just accepted that it did end, and left the rest up to god/karma/fate/time/whatever.

I'm not so sure I agree with you on this one, for once. The evidence I saw seemed to suggest that MJ was taken advantage of by grifters out for a buck. I didn't see any compelling evidence of wrongdoing.

I don't think that the families were innocent. I do believe that the children were pawns used by evil families and a deeply disturbed man.

Well, I agree that Jackson was deeply disturbed, and I agree the children were pawns, I'm just not sure that Jackson actually did anything wrong.

We are just going through shock.. his early Music influenced many, and his dance moves! Michael Jackson Thriller is like my earliest memory of TV I think I was 4

No one doubts that he was crazy. We know. Most just want to focus on his music..

I have had loved ones die and it is heart breaking and one of the worst parts is thinking "they won't be here for this event or that. I will never talk to them about my day." But with a celeb, your life doesn't change. I think however, due to the celeb's life being broadcast, people start to feel like they are apart of that persons life. That they will be missing something.

It is sad in an academic sense that any person has to die. But life is finite and if we mourn for each human that dies, our lives would be very very dark.

I agree with you. MJ was creative and brilliant but so disturbed as to be rejected by an entire country. Probably victim and pepetrator, too much of a lover of children...We don't mourn him so much as we mourn the loss of our image of youthfulness embodied in his persona. He dies and convinces us that we die too. We mourn the fact that we don't still feel the urge to dance vigorously to Billie Jean, in the living room clad only in leather high heels and black bracelet
