CA- SNAP urges compassion for alleged Jackson victim
Wade Robson's lawsuit against Michael Jackson's estate might be quickly dismissed by some. But not by us.
Some may have trouble understanding how a young man might testify on behalf of an adult who molested him as a child. We don't.
Child predators are usually cunning and shrewd. They're often determined to maintain control over their victims, even into adulthood. And the more powerful they are, the more successful they are at manipulating and dominating and tricking their victims, again, even after their victims reach the legal age of majority.
So we suspect Robson's suit has merit. And we know it doesn't deserve to be dismissed out of hand by skeptics. We urge anyone who may have seen, suspect or suffered Jackson's crimes to step forward, expose wrongdoing, and start healing. And we especially urge Jackson's fans to keep open minds and resist the temptation to rush to the defense of a deceased man and, in the process, hurt a living man.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
