Michael Jackson's Death

3 Years Later

6/25/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Today marks the 3-year anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson -- an event that had an impact across the globe.

Tons of lives have been changed since that fateful day ... Conrad Murray went to jail ... MJ's kids have moved in with their grandmother ... numerous doctors have been exposed for sucking up to celebrities and giving them pills they shouldn't have ... and Corey Feldman got another 15 minutes of fame.

Of course, the world mourned together during MJ's memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ... when his daughter Paris choked back tears and said how much she loved her father ... and when Jermaine performed his touching rendition of "Smile."

Michael was eventually laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.

He was only 50-years-old.

well, well, well, since MJ's death anniversary is here, let's review some of the more important issues/lessons here:
Pedophiles Can Be Anyone:
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.
Characteristics of a Pedophile :
•Often the pedophile is male and over 30 years of age.
•Single or with few friends in his age group.
•If married, the relationship is more "companion" based with no sexual relations.
•He is often vague about time gaps in employment which may indicate a loss in employment for questionable reasons or possible past incarceration.
Pedophiles Like Child-like Activities:
•He is often fascinated with children and child activities appearing to prefer those activities to adult oriented activities.
•He will often refer to children in pure or angelic terms using descriptives like innocent, heavenly, divine, pure, and other words that describe children but seem inappropriate and exaggerated.
•He has hobbies that are child-like such as collecting popular expensive toys, keeping reptiles or exotic pets, or building plane and car models.
Pedophiles Often Prefer Children Close to Puberty:
•Pedophiles often have a specific age of child they target. Some prefer younger children, some older.
•Often his environment or a special room will be decorated in child-like decor and will appeal to the age and sex of the child he is trying to entice.
•Many pedophiles often prefer children close to puberty who are sexually inexperienced, but curious about sex.
Pedophiles Work Around Children:
The pedophile will often be employed in a position that involves daily contact with children. If not employed, he will put himself in a position to do volunteer work with children, often in a supervisory capacity such as sports coaching, contact sport instruction, unsupervised tutoring or a position where he has the opportunity to spend unsupervised time with a child.
The Target Child:
The pedophile often seeks out shy, handicapped, and withdrawn children, or those who come from troubled homes or under privileged homes. He then showers them with attention, gifts, taunting them with trips to desirable places like amusement parks, zoo's, concerts, the beach and other such places.
Manipulation of the Innocent:
Pedophiles work to master their manipulative skills and often unleash them on troubled children by first becoming their friend, building the the child's self esteem. They may refer to the child as special or mature, appealing to their need to be heard and understood then entice them with adult type activities that are often sexual in content such as x-rated movies or pictures. They offer them alcohol or drugs to hamper their ability to resist activities or recall events that occurred.
Stockholm Syndrome :
It is not unusual for the child to develop feelings for the predator and desire their approval and continued acceptance. They will compromise their innate ability to decipher good and bad behavior, ultimately justifying the criminal's bad behavior out of sympathy and concern for the adults welfare. This is often compared to Stockholm Syndrome - when victims become attached emotionally to their captors.
The Single Parent:
Many times pedophiles will develop a close relationship with a single parent in order to get close to their children. Once inside the home, they have many opportunities to manipulate the children -- using guilt, fear, and love to confuse the child. If the child's parent works, it offers the pedophile the private time needed to abuse the child.
Fighting Back:
Pedophiles work hard at stalking their targets and will patiently work to develop relationships with them. It is not uncommon for them to be developing a long list of potential victims at any one time. Many of them believe that what they are doing is not wrong and that having sex with a child is actually "healthy" for the child.
Almost all pedophiles have a collection of pronography, which they protect at all costs. Many of them also collect "souvenirs" from their victims. They rarely discard either their porn or collections for any reason.
One factor that works against the pedophile is that eventually the children will grow up and recall the events that occurred. Often pedophiles are not brought to justice until such time occurs and victims are angered by being victimized and want to protect other children from the same consequences.
Laws such as Megan's Law - a federal law passed in 1996 that authorizes local law enforcement agencies to notify the public about convicted sex offenders living, working or visiting their communities, have helped expose the pedophile and allows parents to better protect their children.

Looking through window......
This was not a good day for me. I much prefer to remember him in a celebratory manner as opposed to his demise mainly because there are yet other culprits roaming free. Anyone who paid attention throughout Michael's life and after his death knows that this is NOT a conspiracy theory, it's TRUTH. We got one man down and about 7 to go--2 in particular as they were the Masterminds of the whole thing.
Consider these age-old factors in any Murder Mystery:
-Who stood to gain the most?
-What was the "Macguffin"?
-Who stood to LOSE had Michael's "This Is It" Tour gone forward?
Think about it...
Bottom line, three years later, I still suffer from a broken heart--can't let him get away...
Something about Michael goes deep to the core maybe because he went so hard with everything--played hard, worked hard, LOVED hard....
Thinking of how to show my love for him today (other than spending hours talking to everyone I know about him all day) and just thought of the best idea: since it's so hot, I'm going to get a Supersoaker and douse a few people...
Friends and family, of course.....
Then again, a few water balloons on the head never hurt anybody....
I can hear Michael laughing all the way down here and see that GORGEOUS smile....sigh...
Michael, I'll never stop missing you, can't stop LOVING you, and Whatever happens, I'll NEVER let go of your hand....

TMZ Skydrive    

Folks, we have a winner! TMZ is pleased to announce that HumanNature, based on number of comments, is Michael Jackson’s number one fanatic! Over seven thousand unique comments, over 900,000 words so far! Over a period spanning an incredible 3 years! To put this in perspective, if we bundled all of HumanNature’s comments together in book form, we’d be looking at something the size of Dostoyevsky’s “Brother’s Karamozov.” His comments now account for over 40% of entries posted on any Michael Jackson story on our website (he also posts under at least one additional alias, Duilama).

And even more remarkable, he is even more obsessed with another topic: pedophilia, or “pedo” as he fondly calls it. Be it an article on any subject at all—football, perfume, real estate, public schools, adolescent girls, baby names, and hairstyles (just to name a few), he is able to deftly weave this topic in.

So to reward HumanNature for his admirable interest in Mr. Jackson, we thought we’d give him our “special treatment” even though we had to send our scouts out beyond our thirty mile zone for this one. With help from our IT department and our web surveillance team we were able to trace his true name and identity:

HumanNature (second web alias Duilama) is a registered Level Three sex offender who currently lives in Sedro-Woolley, a city in Skagit County in the State of Washington. HumanNature was convicted in 1997 of: “rape of a child in the first degree. Victim: 7 year old female daughter of his girlfriend.”

Though for litigious reasons we can’t reveal his real name here, you can read more about him by clicking on:

Michael was Godlike !
But he was human.
He brought joy to millions.
But he made mistakes.
At the end of the day
He was a Genius
He will be loved
He will never be forgotten.

To the haters:
Haters are people who are dissapointed about their own lives and try to feel better by saying negative things about other people. Hating is not the solution. Getting help and staying positive is. Good Luck.
Mike we miss you ! Love always !

Why did Michael want to look like a old rich white woman?

829 days ago


Her tears were staged. MJ's whole death/funeral was staged. He really died back when he stopped being the [N ! G G E R] black man he was born as. He was a vile human being, and being glorified after what he has done to children is despicable. I spit on his grave for each and everyone who doesn't have the balls to do it themselves. Just Saying
