did you see Mr. Jackson hanging that baby over the railing on the news?

  1. I know he has admitted he made a mistake. However, I imagine there are Children and Youth Services in Germany and they are going to want to talk to him. In US he would be talking to a judge already.

    I saw that yesterday, couldn't believe it. On CNN.com there was a short video that I watched, and he didn't seem to be doing it maliciously, but to get reaction out of the fans. How stupid and careless can someone be?? Also in the video there was someone behind the curtain of the balcony door, who seemed to be laughing at what he had done. Sick people.

    Reason #487 why Michael Jackson freaks me out.
  6. by   colleen10
    I saw all those news reports on TV and a couple things came to mind.

    1) If that is his child and he was careless enough to do that, it makes me think really, how much time does this guy spend with and caring for his kids? If he is dumb enough to do that it's probably because he usually just pawns the kids off onto their mother or a nanny.

    2) What I thought was more odd than him hanging that baby over the railing was the way that he held that child while he was on the balcony. I could hold a football better than he held that child. It was like he had never touched a baby in his life, and I am quite sure that isn't true.

    Europeans already think Americans are all crazy. He is not helping things much. I want them to know there are several catagories of crazy Americans. One catagory has only one person in it and that person is Michael Jackson. No one can even come close to him, he is in a class by himself.

    I saw it and it really p!ssed me off! I did feel sorry for him but now I think What a Freak! I mean I get the same feeling when I see people with kids perched up on their shoulders and they are holding onto the kids foot... like what if that kid falls off daddy's shoulders? Hmmmm can anyone say, "Head injury, para/quad, broken bones, trauma etc etc..." the sad thing is why does it make me feel like I need to follow them through the store right behind them in case someone has to catch the falling child?
    Does anyone else feel like this?
    Michael Jackson has just been written off the "I fee sorry for him" category and onto the freak category and I feel sorry for whoever's baby that was! There's gotta be a special place in hell for parents who allow their children to be used by someone just because they are a celebrity or for money... Poor kids!

    I think I was most disturbed that he had a towel over the kid's head! I mean, why even bother to show his fans the baby by hanging the kid off of the balcony if you are gonna cover the babies head????

    l don't get the towel on the head either.....at first, l thought so the baby wouldn't be scared.........what a moron!...l also heard on the news today that he showed up to testify in court (don't remember why) wearing a surgical mask....and the judge made him remove it...there was video, but l didn't have my contacts in and the footage was breif...did anyone catch that?......LR

    Sickening..

    IMO, if he were a typical black male here in America, he'd be in jail right now.

    The way he held that baby!!! He could have easily dropped him!!

    Sad that a child won't be protected just because daddy's famous.

    I understand all of the anger here and at first I had the same reaction. Unfortunately, the more I thought about it the more I was convinced that this man really truly needs psychiatric help. . . and I don't say that in a sarcastic way, he really does!!!

    And second, I was much more disturbed by the woman? who opened and closed the door while laughing about the entire event. It is bad enough that this man was confused/deranged enough to think that this would be a good idea, but someone else agreed to help him?!?!?!?! WHAT THE %$&* WAS SHE THINKING!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just my 2 cents

    What a nutcase he is!!

    Both Jackson and that woman are sick....that three innocents are caught up in their insane issues is a sad, sick shame. I hope they will not be seriously hurt in all this hullaballoo...Jacko is wacko..no doubt about it. That his troubled childhood should culminate in this horror is sad to say the least.
