Er, I didn't comment on you saying that.

Ah, this time you've added a second group of people; there's the relatives and now the 100% trustworthy too.

We have no idea whether the parents of children who share Jacko's bed regard him as 100% trustworthy. Furthermore, we have no idea if such a judgement would be right.

I know such people too, and i think it's sadly safe to say most of us do.

Most people who sexually abuse children were abused themselves when they were children. It is often a response, it is a result of the abuse; such people are both perpetrator and victim .

If we don't recognise that, if we don't come at it with humanity but instead with vengeance and cruelty then we are not addressing the problem, and thus we are actually permitting it to continue.

So, precisely *because* I too have to deal with friends who bear the awful damage of sexual abuse, I do not share your bloodlust.

> I don't like Jacko I think he is guilty .

I'll say it one last time; you, like the rest of us here, are not in possession of the facts, and so your opinion on his guilt or innocence is not only irrelevant but invalid.
