Kurt Loder:

MJ Was a Child Molester

11/8/2011 9:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kurt Loder
Kurt Loder
-- the longtime face of "MTV News" -- says he believes Michael Jackson was a child molester.

Loder appeared on the "Jeff and Jeremy in the Morning" radio show this morning  ... when he was asked if he thought MJ's death was a tragedy.

Loder replied, "Its a shame how he grew up ... his childhood was a shame ... there is many sad aspects to his life, ... on the other hand, I think he was a child molester, and that sort of tempers any feelings you might have about him."

When asked why he believed MJ molested kids, Loder claimed he knew about secret payouts to the parents of little boys ... and pointed to MJ's bizarre behavior.

"Having sleepovers with little boys, and you're a 40 year old man??? Uh, NO. You're like a child molester."

Loder continues, "Maybe being a child molester is the product of a pretty terrible childhood he had ... you can see why that might have happened. On the other hand, molesting children is bad."

Hey, guess what...


-Michael Jackson was thrice accused of child molestation (Chandler, Francia, Arvizo)


-Michael Jackson settled his 1st case for $25 million after a 13-yr-old boy accurately drew a detailed description of his genitals...including marks that can only be seen during an erection.


-Michael Jackson had an alarm system for his bedroom that would go off when someone was approaching.


-Michael Jackson had a 2nd hidden bedroom within his main bedroom.


-Three different types of semen were found on Michael Jackson's mattress--one belonged to him, and the two others belonged to different males. A fourth sample of semen was found in Michael's bedsheets, and a fifth on a size small pair of underwear stored in a bag with Michael's own soiled underwear. No female DNA was detected.


-During the raid, police discovered that Michael Jackson had multiple books of nude children including "Boys Will be Boys", which is an extremely explicit book of young boys in erotic poses (this was locked in a filing cabinet in his room)


-Michael Jackson owned a nude photo of his pubescent friend Jonathan Spence...a boy he shared his bed with for years.


Anyone who still doesn't realize that he was a child predator is an idiot.

Did this man ever meet Michael? I doubt it.

There are so many amateur psychologists prepared to offer an opinion on Michaels sexuality based on nothing more than a subjective suspicion that he somehow fits the ‘profile’ of a paedophile.

It is not true. Let me repeat that: Michael Jackson does NOT fit the profile of a paedophile.

I am an academic psychologist with a research interest in criminology, specifically paedophilia. I can tell you that profiling is not an exact science. Profiles are based on correlation studies only and are notoriously unsafe. They have a limited value in that they may help to eliminate suspects, but they should NEVER be used as an indication of guilt. Despite this, many so called ‘experts’ have, over the years, offered an opinion regarding Michael Jackson.

Bear in mind that it is doubtful that any of these ‘experts’ never actually ever met Jackson, and most of their opinions have been based solely on the somewhat sensationalised media reports which have circulated throughout MJs life, rather than any specific knowledge or evidence.

Having said that, after working in this area for years, and painstakingly researching the evidence in this specific case, I have formed my own opinion that there is no evidence that MJ was a paedophile.
In fact, there is quite a lot of evidence to the contrary.

Some reasons why I formed this opinion are listed below:

- Paedophiles are quite probably the most devious and calculating members of our society. They will go to extraordinary lengths to evade suspicion and convince the public that their libido is conventional.
In my experience, no paedophile would ever, ever, ever ADMIT to sharing his bed with a child, in the manner that MJ did.

- Jacksons personality peculiarities can be far better explained by his extraordinary upbringing, rather than any sexual perversion.

- MJ was married, and his wife continues to claim that they had a normal sex life.

- Jackson had access to thousands of children throughout his life. If he had abnormal tendencies, we would expect to find FAR more evidence, more victims, especially after his death.

- Jackson had been subjected to religious indoctrination throughout his life. He would have found any sexual perversion particularly sinful.

- The police found a standard heterosexual porn stash (which Jackson admitted reading) when raiding his home for evidence.

- None of the computer hard disks examined after the police raid showed any evidence of downloading paedophilia. (I have never known a paedophile who did not store images). On the contrary, MJs computer showed a history of visits to heterosexual sites.

- The first (Chandler) allegation of molestation was made by the boys father, and for many months was denied by both the mother and by the boy himself.

- MJ was rich, so we have to consider the liklihood of extortion. The first allegation of molestation demanded a monetary settlement, which questions the motivation of the accuser.

- The second (Arviso) allegation was so obviously legally unsound, and rightly resulted in an acquittal.

- Many adults who actually knew Jackson when they were children stated that he was not a child molester. If MJ was a paedophile, the perversion would have a history.

I could continue, but choose to limit this list in the interests of brevity.

One more thing:
Remember, it is scientifically impossible to prove a negative - you just can't prove that something did NOT happen, so it was always impossible for Michael Jackson to prove his innocence.

But surely, if you are going to taint a man's reputation – you have to have hard evidence?
Mere allegations were never enough to warrant the destruction of a mans life.

Who is this ******* anyway and why do we care what he thinks? Michael Jackson is beloved by millions and clearly not a pedophile. Anyone who has immersed himself in both the Chandler and Arvizo case can see that he was innocent in both. Anyone who has studied the psychology of pedophiles knows there was nothing in common between then and Jackson.

Americans are just naturally stupid, and have awful taste in music. No wonder they all like Justine Bieber and Lady CaCa.

wow    

These rumors of payoffs have never been substantiated. The FBI found no wrong doing on MJ and I'm sure they looked everything with a fine tooth comb. No doubt they would lay charges immediately if such a finding had come to light. At any rate, the man is deceased and was found not guilty in a court of law. He had his share of problems but he also did much good for others. I don't believe people would speak such vile words if they truly knew the man like the Hiltons, Trump and other people who were close to him. What if definite proof surfaced to his innocence in the future? What would people say then? Time to let sleeping dogs lie.
P.S No. I wouldn't let a grown man or woman share a room with my children. That's not to say they would be guilty of anything. I just wouldn't be comfortable with the arrangement.

People are morons. Michael Jackson wasn't an average 40 year old man. He was different, but he wasn't a child molester and he did more for children and childrens charities than any of us could do in 10 lifetimes. He was a sweet man, weird, but gentle. And tragic. Only dummies believe that child molester crap. That means YOU KURT.

Thank you so much for this great post!

I would like to add: I think it was compelling that Michael on the recording Murray The Bastard made of Michael in a HEAVILY sedated state showed us the innermost thoughts of Michael Jackson, however slurred.
He was thinking aout children, yes, but not in a dirty manner. Take notice of this! He thought about HELPING children by building a HOSPITAL.
Sweet Michael.
