Amazon Selling a Child Porn Book Seized In a Michael Jackson Raid

Boys Will Be Boys!... found in a 2003 raid of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch

Why is a book containing nude images of underage boys — and seized in a raid of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch — now being sold on Amazon?

Please note: Amazon has not yet responded to this inquiry; we’ll keep this story updated to include their comments or actions.

In 2003, Santa Barbara police raided Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and discovered multiple books and magazines containing nude images of underage adolescents and teenagers.  One of those books, called Boys Will be Boys! from 1966, is now available for sale on Amazon through its used book merchandise.

In total, six copies of the rare, used book are being offered on Amazon, by six different sellers.

The book itself was described as follows by Santa Barbara investigators:

“Book: ‘Boys Will be Boys,’ contains full frontal nudity of boys under the age of 14; personally inscribed by Michael Jackson.”

It’s unclear if any of the books being sold is actually the copy inscribed by Michael Jackson, though the rare book may have gained some notoriety following the leaked filing.  Indeed, the pricing on this book starts at $549, going up to nearly $4,500.  All copies are available for immediate purchase and delivery, from various parts of the US and UK.

A complete list of items found and catalogued into evidence from the 2003 Neverland Ranch raid can be found here.

After the previously-sealed, 88 evidence dossier was published by Radar Online, the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department told Digital Music News that they recognized the document.  But the police department declined to discuss any individual items contained in the document itself, including this book.

When pressed on other details, the department flatly and directly refused any additional comment.

Jackson himself was ultimately acquitted of wrongdoing on 14 counts connected with the raids, which comprised just one of several court battles involving allegations of child molestation and other sexual crimes.  The stockpile itself, which was complemented by other forms of media like video, was characterized by Santa Barbara authorities as useful for ‘lowering the inhibitions’ of child victims.

    This book isn’t child pornography. If it was michael jackson would be charged, none of charged were for child pornography . This book wasn’t even sized during the 2003 search and the search was always public information. Radaronline manipulated the real document. Even Ron Zonen confirmed this information. This book was always sold freely because it’s not illegal. Pathetic and uninformed article aimed at sensacionalism using michael jackson’s name.

    Firstly, this book is not child pornography, secondly, I like how this article conveniently leaves out the actual inscription, which was,

    “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children, MJ.”

    Puts an ever so slightly different spin on it doesn’t it.

    Also, those “reports” were not “previously sealed”, they’ve been publicly available since the time of the trial and the recent “new reports” contained images that weren’t even published at the time of the raid. The police department did in fact comment on the more recent story, saying,

    “Some of the documents appear to be copies of reports that were authored by Sheriff’s Office personnel as well as evidentiary photographs taken by Sheriff’s Office personnel interspersed with content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources. The Sheriff’s Office did not release any of the documents and/or photographs to the media. The Sheriff’s Office released all of its reports and the photographs as part of the required discovery process to the prosecution and the defense.”

    You have other inaccuracies too, just ridiculous and lazy, all of the correct information is publicly available, there really no excuse for it.

    Wtf is this ridiculous article about? Digital music appatently wants to be sued by the mj estate like Radaronline…
    NO CHILD PORN had ever been found or seized at Neverlad or any property or pc owned by MJ, and MJ was never accused or charged of such federal crimes…
    This article aka DMN is trying something, but be very carefull what you are writing about = BS stories.

    Are you fucking serious? There is no sexual activity in these books at all it’s not child porn! These books are not only on Amazon but in the Library of Congress as art photography. Every book that was found in Neverland is legal and can be bought by anyone in bookstores or Amazon or Barnes and Noble or found in national libraries. MJ had 10 000 book in Neverland and got books form fans all the time including Boys will be boys.

    Pictures of nude children are no more porn than pictures of nude men or women!
    The history of art if full of nudes, kids and adults alike, there are paintings with nude boys and girls statutes of nude boys and girls and the Library of Congress has books with nude boys and girls including Boys will be boys here it is:
    https://lccn.loc.gov/66001965
    Do you want to arrest and convict every photographer who shot pictures of nude children? Every publisher who published such books every bookstore who sells such books every library which have such books every museum which exhibits such pictures?
    What about Simen Johan whose books Room to play was found in Neverland twice, although no evidence that MJ ever opened it, does include semi nude children and the same pictures have been in various exhibitions like this:
    http://www.physicsroom.org.nz/media/cache/90/de/90debe42a29a730570423cb33ef742ac.png

    Child porn is a federal crime! If they had found any MJ would have been charged and convicted for that alone. Which part of that you don’t understand?

    This is about the 1993 raid which found Boys will be boys:

    “There’s no medical evidence, no taped evidence,” the source said. “The search warrant didn’t result in anything that would support a criminal filing.”
    http://articles.latimes.com/1993-08-27/news/mn-28516_1_jackson-case

    No child porn was found in Neverland period even the DA who hates MJ said so:

    “They weren’t children engaged in sexual activity and there was no child pornography. There were no videos involving children. There were videos that were seized but they were conventional adult sexually graphic material. No children involved.”

    http://www.people.com/article/michael-jackson-estate-blasts-porn-reports
    BTW these books were not found in 2005 or 2003 but in 1993 and they actually prove that MJ was not a pedophile here’s why. There are a lot of things the media never reports about these books but which came out during the trial or can be known by those who study the 1993 case, which of course you idiots in the media never do:

    1. When MJ left for the third leg of the Dangerous your in Aug 1993 he knew very well that the Chandlers could accuse him.
    MJ had a meeting with Evan Chandler on Aug 4 1993 in the Westwood Marquis Hotel where Evan Chandler threatened to ruin
    him unless he give him what he wanted, that was 20 million which Chandler later lowered to 1 million. MJ refused to pay.
    If he had been guilty, if he had used those books for sexual gratification he would have destroyed them right after he learned that Chandler had a plan to accuse him , which was actually on July 9 1993 but at least before he left for the tour knowing full well that Chandler could trigger a criminal investigation which would mean a rain on his ranch. The very fact that the police found those books proves that MJ didn’t even remember having them and therefore didn’t destroy them in July or Aug 1993. And if he didn’t remember them that means he didn’t use them for sexual gratification which means he was not a pedophile as a pedophile most certainly would have used those books for just that!

    2. He didn’t buy them, a fan named Rhonda sent them to him in 1983, she inscribed one of the books it was read out loud during the trial. From your fan “Rhonda” kiss kiss hug hug 1983. The other book was by the same authors also published in the 60s, out of print by the 80s so most likely they were sent together. This book, Boys will be boys, was inscribed by MJ himself, indicating that he wanted to send it back to the fan, one does not inscribe a book for himself. There can be a number of reasons why it was not sent back.
    A pedo would not just wait for some stranger to send him some books with nude boys, he would actively look for such material but there is zero evidence that MJ ever did such a thing. However there is evidence
    that MJ actively looked for pictures of nude women, as this store owner witnessed it:

    “He also bought a bunch of old nude stuff-clipped out pictures from nudist magazines and old shots of posed nude women.”
    http://chuckprophet.com/blog/michael_jackson_visits_recycled_records_-_by_andrew_rush/

    And a pedo, if he finally gets such a book like that would not think about sending it back, obviously.

    3. The police took the two books in 1993 and then didn’t find them during the 2003 raid which means MJ didn’t miss them at all. Instead they found art books which had nude men, women, boys, girls alike but no frontal boy nudes. So someone who wanted to look at teenage penises for 10 years suddenly switched to a few artbooks which did not show that at all instead of reobtaining the original books.
    That makes no sense.

    4. A pedo would have paged the hell ouf those books in 10 years and therefore there would be wear and tear there would be fingerprints all over those pages. But the prosecution did not present any such evidence there is no evidence that MJ ever paged those books at all.

    5. A pedo would not be satified looking at the same pictures for 10 years he would want new stuff. But police found no other pictures of frontal boy nudes at all. Just those two books.

    6. MJ’s inscription in Boys will be boys is about the cover of that book which shows four happy boys jumping in a lake.
    A pedo would not have these thoughts while looking at boys in their swimming trunks:

    “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy on these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood. A life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ”

    Wow what a monster indeed! He focused on the boys’s happiness instead of their dick. That proves he was a pedo, obviously.?

    This books has been available since the 1960s idiots ! Anyone could buy it in used bookstores or on Amazon for years nothing is new.
    Stop this crazy witchhunt against Michael Jackson he didn’t have child porn he would have been charged with it if he had any! It’s a crime to own child porn all right? Michael was never charged with owning child porn because he didn’t have any. How come the media is unable to understand such a simple concept?

    Everyone who knows Michael knows that he was a bookworm and had a huge collection of books and his fans gave him books all the time including this one way back in the 80s. The inscription was shown to the jury during the trial and it illustrated how innocent Michael’s thoughts were when he saw kids:

    “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.”

    You have to be insane to believe this is how a pedophile’s mind works.

    And you can’t even get the basic facts right.
    this book was found in 1993 not during the 2003 raid. They didn’t find it in 2003
    so obviously it was not that important for Michael. Diane Sawyer asked him about this book in 1995 and he didn’t even remember that he owned it.
    It was just one of many many books he got from others over the years and he just didn’t throw it away does not mean he was interested in it.

    This is THE most stupid thing I’ve read since the ‘news’ broke about child pron being found at Neverland!!!

    The reason this book is allowed to be sold on Amazon is because it ISN’T pron!!!

    Jackson did NOT own child pron and was never charged with owning child pron.
    The defense and prosecution lawyers BOTH released public statements stating that child pron was NOT found at Neverland during the police searches. In fact the defense statement was released during the trial and was endorsed by the judge.

    The news stories printed in June claiming to have new evidence was a lie. The Sheriff’s report it referenced was in fact made publically available over 10 years ago and was not new at all. The news report included many inaccuracies, including pictures edited in photoshop to look incriminating, replacing the ones in the original file (which as I said was available on the net for over 10 years, so it was easy to see the lying news for what it was!). In fact one photo the news claimed had been seized in the 2003 Neverland raid wasn’t even photographed until 2008 according to the person who took it. Again it was not classified as pron. Again, more evidence of the lying news site that printed the report.

    Oh and another thing, Jackson was only involved in ONE court battle involving allegations of child abuse. That was in 2005. He was never alleged to have committed “other sexual crimes”.
    He was never charged with any crime after the allegation in 1993 because the case against him was considered “not credible” enough to go to trial. That was decided by TWO grand juries.

    “After the previously-sealed, 88 evidence dossier was published by Radar Online, ”

    1. The 2003 police report was never sealed it has been available on the net since 2005! Stop lying. There is no new evidence, the books and magazines were shown in court in 2005!

    2. Radar Online 88 page PDF file was filled with stuff they took from the net and had nothing to do with the evidence they found in Neverland. It included pictures which MJ didn’t even own and a document about Percocet addiction. When Radar was caught they quietly deleted 27 pages. This photo by Jonathan Hobin was made 5 years after the raid , when Hobin complained the media ignored him:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BG_StlYQ5w4/
    Read the full truth about Radar Online’s propaganda and how they fooled you:
    https://vindicatemj.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/another-fake-in-radar-online-papers-and-another-frame-up-of-michael-jackson/

    “Jackson himself was ultimately acquitted of wrongdoing on 14 counts connected with the raids, which comprised just one of several court battles involving allegations of child molestation and other sexual crimes”

    And of course you never report the truth about those court cases and how dubious and greedy his accusers were and are. You know why MJ was acquitted?
    Because the case against him was a pile of convoluted bullshit and because there was no proof at all that he ever molested anyone.
    The number of accusers proves nothing. Cliff Richard recently was accused by NINE men of childhood molestation, none of it was true.
    You cannot name a single credible person who ever accused MJ. Not one.
    And they all wanted money.

    “The stockpile itself, which was complemented by other forms of media like video, was characterized by Santa Barbara authorities as useful for ‘lowering the inhibitions’ of child victims.”

    1. Except no child even even claimed that MJ ever used that “stockpile” to lower his inhibition. The stockpile was not a stockpile at all, MJ had thousands of books in Neverland among them hundreds of art and photography books among them a few with pictures of nude men women boys and girls. Way too random for it to be a stockpile.

    2.The only kids who mentioned MJ’s adult magazines and only those not the books not any videos, were the Arvizos who as it was revealed during the trial broke in to MJ’s room while he wasn’t even there and found the magazines themselves! The two, Gavin and Star then gave two contradictory stories about when and how MJ supposedly showed them the magazines.
    Of course it makes no sense that MJ would need more than 80 hetero adult magazines to groom boys anyway, especially since he kept buying them even after the Arvizos left and bought them during the period when he supposedly groomed and molested Chandler between 1992 May and 1993 July but Chandler never mentioned any such magazines, it’s not part of his bogus story because he didn’t even know that MJ owned such magazines.
    What if you reported the full truth instead of just parrotting the prosecution’s biased side?

    Why is a book containing nude images of underage boys now being sold on Amazon?

    I can’t believe someone in 21st century America asked this question.

    It is being sold now for the same reason it was sold last year five years ago and 30 years ago: it’s not child porn! Very simple.

    One can’t be underage for a nude photo as it’s not illegal to make and publish nude photos of children! Is that news to you? Educate yourself.

    A picture of a nude child in and of itself is no more pornographic than a pictures of a nude man or woman!
    Do you consider Kelly Klein a child pornographer because she made photos of children in their underwear?

    Child porn is ILLEGAL! If police finds you own child porn you will be charged and convicted surprise surprise.
    Was Jackson ever charged with possession of child porn? No.
    So you still think he had child porn. Please seek help.

    Every book listed in the 2003 police report has been available on Amazon and other reputable online bookstores and they are also in various libraries all over the world. Want a book burning? What’s your agenda?

    Here’s the list of books police found “horrible” enough to single them out from
    Jackson’s gigantic library of about 10000 books. Go demand that Amazon explain why they are selling each and every one and then write an article about them.

    Your article is deeply dishonest and I think it’s not merely due to ignorance.
    You deliberately avoid facts and reason.

    This book is not child porn and it was not in the 2003 police report it was in Sneddon’s motion.
    They found it in 1993 not 2003, Jackson didn’t even own it for 10 years.
    By Aug 1993 Jackson knew that Evan Chandler was ready to accuse him of molesting Jordan. If he had done that I don’t see why he would have left this book on his ranch since he had good reason to anticipate a raid.
    They found it because Jackson went on tour and left it there. He didn’t remember this book at all which means he was not interested in looking at nude boys. It was just a gift from a fan among many.

    Who inscribes a book for himself? Probably the person who sent him the book wanted it back with Jackson’s autograph. The inscription gives you an idea who Michael Jackson really was, many things for sure, but not a child molester:

    “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.”

    Maybe if you put aside your cynical thoughts you could understand why he wrote those words.
    Probably for the same reason why he had this painting on his wall:

    Possession of child porn is a federal crime. The very fact that Jackson was never charged is irrefutable evidence that he did not possess child porn. Lying about this or other books Jackson owned won’t change that.

    The police report itself was exaggerated and largely refuted during the trial.
    Jackson didn’t use any of those books, magazines or videos to lower children’s inhibitions. He had adults magazines like millions of other straight men and he had art books because he was an artist who was crazy about art but that’s it.

    Three boys accused him. Two, Gavin Arvizo and Jason Francia were not found to be credible by the jury. The third, Jordan Chandler didn’t even want to testify against Jackson but his family was very much interested in his money. Improbable that out of all the boys around him he would choose to molest that one.

    He was charged with molestation in 2003 never for any other sexual crime.
    In 1993 he wasn’t even charged, the 2003 case was absurd, shouldn’t have gone to trial in the first place.

    He had adults magazines like millions of other straight men and he had art books, as an artist himself who was crazy about art that’s understandable. A few of those artbooks had images of nude people, men, women and children alike. Jackson clearly did not stockpile pictures of nude boys and his collection of books is very diverse to establish his sexual proclivities Were the books with nude men evidence of attraction to gay men? I don’t think so. Three boys accused him. Two, Gavin Arvizo and Jason Francia were not found to be credible by the jury. The third, Jordan Chandler didn’t even want to testify against Jackson but his family was very much interested in his money. Improbable that out of all the boys around him he would choose to molest that one. He was charged with molestation in 2003 never for any other sexual crime.
    In 1993 he wasn’t even charged, the 2003 case was absurd, shouldn’t have gone to trial in the first place.

    Guess what Paul Resnikoff? Every book in that police report is available on Amazon and/or major libraries. The vintage nudist magazines? You can buy them on ebay.
    Michael had them because he loved old pictures of naked women. You heard it,
    women not boys. This guy saw as Michael was buying such pictures:
    “He also bought a bunch of old nude stuff-clipped out pictures from nudist magazines and old shots of posed nude women.”

  18. You are out of your mind

    Why is a book containing nude images of underage boys now being sold on Amazon?
    I can’t believe someone in 21st century America asked this question.
    It is being sold now for the same reason it was sold last year five years ago and 30 years ago: it’s not child porn! Very simple. One can’t be underage for a nude photo as it’s not illegal to make and publish nude photos of children! Is that news to you? Educate yourself. Kelly Klein is not a child pornographer because she made photos of children in their underwear. Read the police report. It states 7 times that those books and magazines are not child porn. You know it better than the police?
    Child porn is ILLEGAL! If police finds you own child porn you will be charged and convicted surprise surprise. Was Jackson ever charged with possession of child porn? No. So you still think he had child porn. Please seek help.

    Paul Resnikoff the writer of this article and publisher of Digital Music News obviously failed to do proper research before attempting to slander and smear Michael Jackson the artist and then stealthy adds a link to RadarOnlines article that a 100 million dollar lawsuit for Libel has been filed by MJ’s nephews’ against! Was he not aware of the fact that article has been rebuked! MJ was never charged with possession of Child Porn! The book Boys will be Boys was published in 1963 and is not classified porn! It was a gift to MJ and the inscription by the fan who gave it to Michael said “To Michael: From your fan, Rhonda. Love XXXOOO ♥ Rhonda – 1983.” I guess the fan in Mr. Resnikoff’s eyes must also have been in possession of porn when she gave it to MJ! The FBI combed over MJ computers and helped with the investigation at Sneddon’s request in 2003 and found Nothing to assist Sneddon with abuse allegations and found no possession of porn. Does Mr. Resnikoff also considers Michelangelo’s statute of David which is nude and stands in Italy to be viewed by all ages of people to be Porn? Will his next article be “Why is Italy allowing Porn to be shown in public?” Is the Sistine Chapel also painted by Michelangelo which has many paintings of nude child angles and adults and is a huge tourist attraction also porn in Mr. Resnikoff’s views. I hope the readers of this publication realize this article has nothing to do with music and everything to do with trying to slander a man whose music is loved the world over.

      Actually Boys A photographic essay was inscribed by Rhonda but since this books is by the same authors, both out of print by the 1980 they most likely were sent together.
      This one was inscribed by MJ and apparently Paul Resnikoff thinks that people inscribe books for themselves. Clearly MJ wanted to send the book back to the fan or someone else.
      Paul Resnikoff systematically ignores the facts about the allegations against MJ and like all the other haters tells one lie after another to make a case against him.
      The fact is that these two books actually prove that MJ was not a pedophile as a pedophile would not just wait for someone to send pics of nude boys to him, he would not want to send such a book to anyone but keep it, his fingerprints would be on the pages and no fingerprint evidence about these books was shown court, a pedophile would have tried to reobtain these books after the police took them in 199, wouldn’t have been satisfied looking at the same pictures for 10 years he would have tried to obtain new material and most of all if MJ had been guilty of molesting Jordan he would have destroyed these book after he heard that Evan Chandler was planniing to accuse him but at least when he left for the tour, knowing very well that if the Chandlers go to the police a raid on his ranch could find the books. Police found the books because MJ didn’t even remember having them so it didn’t occur to him that he should throw them out. And if he didn’t remember them that proves he didn’t use the books for sexual gratification which proves he was not a pedophile as a pedophile would have done just that!

    It is appears after reading other articles by Mr. Resnikoff about MJ, he is totally uniformed of what REALLY happened in the trial of MJ in 2005. His main source of information he appears to rely on is Tabloids which are unreliable. Even though his site says it is about Music, when it comes to MJ it appears to be nothing but another tabloid which ignores facts as well as MJ contibutions to MUSIC and Music videos, and his help in opening the doors for other black artist in the 80’s and his humanatarianism. MJ was found Not Guilty because there was NO evidence and the states witness and accusers were proven in court to be liars and scammers. Many books have mentioned this in their summation of the charges filed on MJ. The tabloids failed to reported how many lies the accusers and state witnesses were caught in during the 2005 attempted lynching of MJ. The accusers admitted MJ never harmed them. There are scholarly articles written by Ethical journalist about how much of the media Misreported the 2005 case. RO did not discover any new evidence, so why does Mr. keep mentioning them in his articles. MJ had no Porn. MJ was found Not Guilty. If I were looking for a site that was truly about Music this would be the last place I would refer anyone to. “Lies run sprints, truth runs Marathons.” MJ. Tabloids are not about Truth they are about lies and sensationalism.

  23. Ignore Above Commenters, They've Never Seen These Books

    Great article and good question, why are these kinds of books still available for sale? These books are also available in some public libraries, which is also puzzling. The people commenting above have never seen the books in question so are ill-equipped to comment on them. While not fitting the strict legal definition of child pornography, most people would consider these books to be just that, as I’ll explain.

    Michael Jackson inscribed in the front of the book Boys Will Be Boys the following:
    “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.”
    Taken at face value, as fans above have, one would think that the book is entirely innocent. It is not. If you ever have the chance to look at this book at one of the major public libraries where it is held you would realize that that inscription was the last thing that anybody would ever write in this book.

    The book Boys Will Be Boys is a collection of photos of boys, most of them naked, taken by pedophile photographers such as Hajo Ortil, Karel Egermeier, Jos Le Doare and Jacques Simonot. Having been taken by pedophile photographers, the photographs in the book feature boys’ penises, buttocks, and anuses prominently. So bad are most of the photographs in the book that an image search on Google using the following:

    “Boys Will Be Boys” “Nelson”

    (Ronald C. Nelson is listed as one of the books editors) will yield very few results, as Google refuses to index photos such as many of those featured in the book.

    The other book, purportedly sent by fan “Rhonda” is less suggestive, although it too would have many people scratching their heads wondering why it isn’t classified as child pornography. (the answer: it doesn’t fit the strict legal definition of child pornography).

    I would be interested to see what those libraries who hold these books would say were it pointed out to them the real contents of these books. They were probably added to their collections in a far more tolerant and permissive era. Thankfully we now recognize these books for what they are — put together by pedophiles for pedophiles.

    For more information, see http://www.mjfacts.com/was-child-pornography-found-in-michael-jacksons-home/

    I should add, some of the images in the article are from Jackson’s book and although legal may not be safe for work. Having to give that warning is a strong indication that these books were not innocent.

    • This book actually proves MJ was not a pedo

      Above hater and the author of this article ignore a lot of facts about this book,
      and the other books and magazines which MJ had, cherry-pick and distort evidence and ignore exculpatory evidence which was revealed during the trial and which can be known by everyone who knows who MJ bought and got books over the years that he loved art and photography ever since he was a child and what the Chandlers were doing in July and Aug 1993.

      The very fact that police found Boys will be boys in MJ’s house proves that he was innocent.

      1. If MJ had been guilty of molesting Chandler and other boys as haters and Sneddon claimed and if he had used this book for sexual gratification he would have got rid of it right after Evan Chandler threatened to accuse him of which he learned on July 8 or July 9 1993 after he heard the tape of Chandler’s phone call to Dave Schwarz but at least before he left the country in Aug 1993 which was AFTER Evan Chandler had a meeting with him on Aug 4 1993 and made it clear if he doesn’t pay they would ruin him. A guilty person would have been concerned that Chandler would go to the police and the police then would raid his ranch. But haters believe that even after Evan Chandler told MJ on Aug 4 1993 that “I’m gonna ruin you” he still left Boys will be boys on his ranch in his room and then went on tour knowing full well that the Chandlers could go to the police on any day.
      Haters like Jim Thomas of the sheriff department even argued that they didn’t find any physical evidence to support Chandler’s allegations because someone cleaned the place before the raid. Well if that happened how come MJ left those two books there? The fact is that MJ didn’t even remember having those books just like he told Diane Sawyer in 1995 interview, he was surprised when Sawyer mentioned that police found books with nude boys.
      Because he didn’t remember them and because he was not guilty of molesting anyone he didn’t get rid of the books not even before he left the country. And if he didn’t remember them that proves he was not a pedophile as a pedophile most certainly would have used those books for sexual gratification over those 10 years!
      (MJ got them in 1983 from a person named or nicknamed Rhonda)

      2. The police took Boys will be boys and it’s companion book Boy A Photographic essay in 1993. These were the only items they found during any raid which actually showed frontal boy nudes, supposedly what MJ was interested in. They did not find the books again in 2003, instead they found books with nude men, nude women, nude girls and a few nude boys but not ones which showed the penises.
      So how come MJ supposedly wanted to look at teenage penises between 1983 and 1993 but was not interested in that in the next 10 years and instead bought a bunch of pictures of nude women, supposedly bought a few books with nude MEN, one adult gay sex book, a few art photography books which showed nude girls, vintage nudist magazines which focused on the adult female form and didn’t
      show any genitalia…but not pictures of frontal boy nude?
      How do those fact support the idea that he was sexually attracted to boys?
      A pedophile would have tried to re-obtain Boys will be boys or similar material showing young boy genitalia. The fact that MJ didn’t do it proves he was not interested in looking at that at all.

    • This book actually proves MJ was not a pedo

      3. MJ had a few photography books with nude men, nude women and nude girls and he did share his room and bed with men, women girls too. Three women and two men claimed they had sexual relationship with him and Conrad Murray claimed he wanted to marry little girls too. Do those things prove that he was sexually attracted to men, women girls alike? Nonsense.
      Just because some fan sent him a few books with had pictures of nude boys and just because he shared his room and bed with boys and just because some boys said MJ had sexual contact with them do not prove that he was sexually attracted to boys let alone that he molested them. Many people said many things about MJ usually to make money or take revenge or both. And many people sent him books which he didn’t even care about. You have to look at what MJ himself wanted to have over the years and the fact is that the only sexually explicit stuff he bought
      systematically for years was all hetero and adult. Not boys, not child porn. How come you don’t accept that evidence that he was into hetero adult sex but you think two books he didn’t even buy, didn’t even page and didn’t even have after 1993 somehow proves he was into boys? Idiotic hater “logic”.

      4. Not even Sneddon and Zonen labelled Mj’s books as child porn they knew it would be ridiculous as child porn is SEXUAL ACTIVITY involving
      children NOT pictures of nude children sitting on benches climbing trees jumping in lakes and it doesn’t matter which body part is visible the human body in and of itself is not pornographic. The photographers who made that books knew very well they could not publish and sell the book if it was child porn.

      5. t’s irrelevant whether the book was made by pedos or not MJ obviously didn’t background check every author and photographer whenever he got some book from a fan and Boys will be boys along with Boy a Photographic essay were such books and not even Sneddon could produce any evidence that MJ ever had any contact with pedos. However we know that pedos DID target MJ as Victor Gutierrez said when he attended a NAMBLA conference those pedos were fantasizing that MJ was one of them simply because they saw him with Emmanuel Lewis, Sean Lennon and other kids and MJ never made a secret of his love for chilren, well because he had nothing to hide in fact.
      All kinds of creeps targetted MJ because of his exterme fame, it’s possible that pedos sent him those books, pretending to be fans.
      But there is zero evidence that MJ bought them or ever wanted to have. There is evidence that they were sent to him as gifts, like thousands of other items over the years. The books are by the same authors, both published in the 1960, out of print by the 1980 so most likely there were sent together. One of them was inscribed by a fan named Rhonda and was read out loud during the trial:
      6 Q. Let me show you Exhibit No. 842. Please read out loud the inscription on that book.
      8 A. Is that, “To Michael”? Yeah. “To Michael, from your fan. Kiss, kiss, kiss, hug, hug, hug. Rhonda. 1983.”
      So it’s not just purportedly sent to him by Rhonda it’s a fact that it was sent to him by another person, no matter how much haters would like to ignore that.

    • This book actually proves MJ was not a pedo

      6. If the book was child porn you couldn’t see it in the Library of Congress and it’s right there, look:
      https://lccn.loc.gov/66001965
      Along with other books which have pictures of naked children as the pictures of naked children is no more pornographic than the picture of naked men or women. There is a reason why it’s not illegal to make, store, sell or own pictures of nude children. If it was you should destroy every statute every painting which
      show naked kids. Do you want to label Caravaggio’s paintings of nude boys as child porn? They show everything:
      penis buttock and no doubt pedos would like to look at them. What about the Manneken Pis in Brussels?
      It’s a naked boy holding his penis. Do you think that city is supporting pedophilia?
      Frankly, if you look at nude children and think about sex you are the pervert yourself!

      7. There is absolutely no evidence that MJ ever paged this or any other books which had pictures of nude boys. No evidence that he even knew what kind of pictures were INSIDE the book. His inscription is about the COVER showing happy boys jumping in the lake and the very fact that he inscribed and sign the book on the white
      page proves that he wanted to send it back to the fan as one does not inscribe and sign books for themselves and especially not this way:
      “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces.
      This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.”
      So you say that MJ instructed himself to look at the happiness on the boys’s faces than carefully hid the book from everyone in a closed file cabinet? Does that make sense to you?
      It’s obvious he wrote this to someone else and that is further evidence he was not a pedo as a pedo would not have wanted to give this book away he would have wanted to keep it. Why it was not sent back, there can be a number of reasons.
      But MJ did this many times: fans sent him items, asked him to sign them and return them.
      Since Sneddon could not show any evidence that MJ paged the book , there was no fingerprint evidence that he ever touched those pages which had the nude pictures no any other evidence such as comments on the inside pages that he ever looked at those pictures this is what happened: fan sent him the to books, wanted him to keep the one she inscribed and asked for the other to be signed and returned. MJ took Boys will be boys looked at the cover, inscribed what was on his mind then put it aside moved to the next item. His people’s job would have been to make sure
      the book was sent back and they didn’t, probably this happen more than once.

      8. The inscription itself shows what MJ had on his mind while looking at boys. And it was not sex! Haters totally miss the meaning of this inscription:

      “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy on these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood. A life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ”

      No pedophile would have those thoughts while looking at boys in their swimming trunks! But someone who was obsessed with HAPPY CHILDHOOD which MJ was and liked kids being happy would think about those things.

      The inscription is in line with all the statutes and paintings and pictures MJ liked to surround himself: happy smiling babies and boys and girls
      not naked boys. These are not some books which he didn’t even buy and didn’t open. These were the things he wanted to see every day!
      They say everything about his character, Room to play or the nude pictures in Boys will be boys do not.
      Stuff like this:
      http://img.wennermedia.com/featured-…3818-large.jpg
      and this:
      http://i2.dailyrecord.co.uk/incoming…JS18198410.jpg
      He even had a poem in Neverland about smiling babies:
      https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BuYZzYcIMAADXGl.jpg
      I don’t know about any serial boy molester who wants to see happy smiling babies girls and boys all the time.
      He wanted to see kids happy not to violate and humiliate them and the public totally missed that, such a shame.
      He loved and cared about kids all his life and have great compassion for them, it’s absurd to say that he molested, raped, humiliated , ruined them everything about his persona and actions and words is contrary to those, including
      the inscription in Boys will be boys. Most jurors understood that and if you don’t it only shows you are evil and sick and totally incapable of having the same pure love and empathy MJ had in his heart and mind.

      Since Sneddon could not show any evidence that MJ paged the book , there was no fingerprint evidence that he ever touched those pages which had the nude pictures no any other evidence such as comments on the inside pages that he ever looked at those pictures this is what happened: fan sent him the to books, wanted him to keep the one she inscribed and asked for the other to be signed and returned. MJ took Boys will be boys looked at the cover, inscribed what was on his mind then put it aside moved to the next item. His people’s job would have been to make sure
      the book was sent back and they didn’t, probably this happen more than once.

    • This book actually proves MJ was not a pedo

      8. The inscription itself shows what MJ had on his mind while looking at boys. And it was not sex! Haters totally miss the meaning of this inscription:

      “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy on these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood. A life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ”

      No pedophile would have those thoughts while looking at boys in their swimming trunks! But someone who was obsessed with HAPPY CHILDHOOD which MJ was and liked kids being happy would think about those things.

      The inscription is in line with all the statutes and paintings and pictures MJ liked to surround himself: happy smiling babies and boys and girls
      not naked boys. These are not some books which he didn’t even buy and didn’t open. These were the things he wanted to see every day!
      They say everything about his character, Room to play or the nude pictures in Boys will be boys do not.
      Stuff like this:
      img.wennermedia.com/featured-…3818-large.jpg
      and this:
      i2.dailyrecord.co.uk/incoming…JS18198410.jpg
      He even had a poem in Neverland about smiling babies:
      pbs.twimg.com/media/BuYZzYcIMAADXGl.jpg
      I don’t know about any serial boy molester who wants to see happy smiling babies girls and boys all the time.
      He wanted to see kids happy not to violate and humiliate them and the public totally missed that, such a shame.
      He loved and cared about kids all his life and have great compassion for them, it’s absurd to say that he molested, raped, humiliated , ruined them everything about his persona and actions and words is contrary to those, including
      the inscription in Boys will be boys. Most jurors understood that and if you don’t it only shows you are evil and sick and totally incapable of having the same pure love and empathy MJ had in his heart and mind.

      The police report says they found adult porn DVD and adult porn periodicals in MJ’s Targus briefcase. I remember during the trial Sneddon questioned a Neverland employee about an envelop which contained adult magazines and that it was sent from Japan where Jackson previously stayed. Sneddon didn’t say a boy was with him in Japan during that trip which means there was not if there had been Sneddon would have made an issue out of it. So MJ was there all alone with his adult magazines.
      Some of the adult magazines were from the early 90s, 91 92 93 but no one knew MJ had such magazines until the 2003. They didn’t find any during the 1993 raid. So where were they? He overseas on tour when the raid took place so most likely he had those magazines with him. But he was alone there he didn’t have any boy with him. Why would a pedo took adult porn with him on trips?
      It’s obvious MJ liked adult porn not child porn and he didn’t use it to groom anyone. He used it for the same thing millions of other straight guys use it.

  24. Liar! Book was shown in court we know what pictures were in it. It's not porn, period.

    Wade Rosbon himself was asked to look at those pictures this is what he testified:

    26 Let’s start with one titled “Boys Will Be Boys.” I’d like you to take a look at a few of the pages. Just go ahead and start turning pages, please. Stop there for a moment. Would you describe the picture on the right side?
    5 A. There’s a young boy with his legs open and he’s naked.
    7 Q. All right. The picture prominently displays his genitalia, does it not?
    9 A. Yes.
    10 Q. That boy looks, to you, to be approximately how old?
    12 A. Maybe 11 or 12. Q. That’s how old you were when you were
    14 sleeping with Michael Jackson; is that right?
    15 A. Yes.
    16 Q. Go ahead and flip a couple of more pages, if you would.
    18 You can stop right there, the next page.
    19 What’s the picture on the left show?
    20 A. Just a young boy who’s naked standing on a rock.
    22 Q. His genitalia is prominently displayed in that picture; is that correct?
    24 A. Yes.
    21 Q. And that many of the photographs, if not most of the photographs, depicted in that book are
    23 of boys nude; is that correct?
    24 A. Yes.
    25 Q. And in fact, in most of those pictures, the genitalia is prominently displayed; is that right?
    27 A. Yes.
    28 Q. Would you be concerned with a person who possesses a book like that?
    2 A. No.
    3 Q. Would you be concerned about having your 12-year-old child in bed with a person who possesses a book like that?
    6 A. No.
    7 Q. You would have no such concern?
    8 A. No. It’s — to me, it doesn’t — it’s not a pornographic book. It’s sort of, you know — I don’t know, just a book.

    16 FURTHER RECROSS-EXAMINATION BY MR. MESEREAU:
    18 Q. Mr. Robson, I want to show you Exhibit No. 841. It says, “Boys Will Be Boys.” Do you see this?
    21 A. Yes.
    22 Q. Okay. Now, I’d like you to read the inscription on that book, okay? Read it out loud, if you would.
    25 A. Okay. “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of
    27 boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.” 9150
    1 Q. Having read that inscription and having looked at this book, would you have any concern
    3 being in bed with Michael Jackson if you knew this book was found in his home?
    5 A. No.

  25. Ignore Above Commenters, They've Never Seen These Books

    Thank you for posting Wade’s testimony, which proves that “while not fitting the strict legal definition of child pornography, most people would consider these books to be just that”. As Wade’s testimony makes clear the book Boys Will Be Boys is full of photos of boys with their genitalia prominently on display. As for Wade’s opinion, we now know he was coached by Michael Jackson so his opinion is not his but rather that of MJ, which tells us a lot. Don’t forget that Wade and Brett knew it was possible they would be confronted by the prosecution over these books, they were staying with MJ at Neverland during the trial.

    Stop for a moment and consider, if these were photos of 12 year old girls, would you be so forgiving? For instance, “a young girl with her legs open and she’s naked, the picture prominently displaying her genitalia”. You would not. It shows the double standard involved when it comes to Michael Jackson, and the abuse of boys in general. A man that owns suggestive nudes of boys and sleeps with boys the same age as those depicted in those photos is a pedophile; as would be a man that owns suggestive nudes of girls and sleeps with girls the same age as those depicted.

      1. First you said we don’t know what kind of pictures are in the books.
      You lied, admit it. We know because the pictures were shown in court and described in court.

      2. Wade saw the book and did NOT considered it porn, apparently you missed what he said:
      “No. It’s — to me, it doesn’t — it’s not a pornographic book. It’s sort of, you know — I don’t know, just a book.”

      3. Not only Wade didn’t considered it porn Zonen and Sneddon didn’t considered it porn either. This is what Zonen said about the professional publications which they found in Neverland which had pictures of nude boys and girls:

      4. If MOST people considered this book child porn you couldn’t have bought them in standard bookstores over the last 50 years, the Library of Congress wouldn’t have it and in fact their couldn’t have published it in US at all! You apparently don’t know what porn is. It’s SEXUAL ACTIVITY. There is no sexual activity in this book at all.
      YOUR fantasies while looking at nude boys are on your mind not in the book itself.
      A pedophile will have those fantasies if they look at a nude child no matter what. That won’t make every picture, every painting every statute of a nude child porn! You now what porn is? This: MJ did like porn. ADULT HETERO porn that’s why he bought all these magazines for 12 years and no he didn’t use them to groom anyone that was pretty much proven during the trial. And the very fact
      that Chandler never mentioned any book or magazine while MJ kept buying those magazines between 1992 May and 1993 July , supposedly while grooming and molesting Chandler, itself proves that his real interest was in hetero adult sex not in sex with boys.

      5. “As Wade’s testimony makes clear the book Boys Will Be Boys is full of photos of boys with their genitalia prominently on display”
      So what? That doesn’t make it porn! Just like the statue of David is not porn, Cronos which has picture of a girl with her genitalia prominently displayed is not porn (you can buy the book on Amazon by the way), Leonard Nimoy’s Full body project is not porn….in other words the naked human form is not porn.
      If you think it is please start a campaign to ban every work of art which shows a fully nude boy or girl. Good luck with that.

      • I've Seen Inside. They Are Pedo Books.

        “First you said we don’t know what kind of pictures are in the books.”

        They never said we don’t know what kind of pictures are in the book. We do know. Naked pictures of boys. They are saying Michael Jackson fans have never seen the books and thus are unqualified to comment on them.

        I have spoken to several people who have seen the book, and they have described in detail just how explicit the images are. I have also seen some images from one of the books, including one shown in a TV interview between Catherine Crier and guests Frank Cascio and Frank’s lawyer Joe Tacopina (the photo was the one shown to Wade Robson). They are designed to appeal to pedophiles.

        If any fan ever saw these books they would realize how ridiculous their current defenses are. These are not coffee table or art books, you would never leave them on display in your home. Even Michael Jackson realized this because he kept them locked away in a filing cabinet. You would never believe an inscription on the frontispiece (clearly designed to fool people) that referred to “happiness in boys’ faces” with the plethora of boys’ penises, buttocks, and anuses in the book.

        I suggest that until you get a chance to look at these pedophile publications you should keep your mouth shut about their significance. You have no clue.

          Boys Will Be Boys have no artistic value. The photographers are only well known to pedophiles. The reason second hand copies cost between five hundred and two thousand dollars is because they are highly sought after by pedophiles, no other reason. They are barely legal child porn. Stop trying to make out that they meant nothing to Michael Jackson.

            Of course they meant nothing to Michael Jackson! If they had been so important to him as you think and if he had been guilty of molesting Chandler how come he didn’t get rid of this book when he learned that Evan Chandler was planning to accuse him? How come he was not afraid that Chandlers would go to the police and the police would find the book? How come he left for the tour and left this book on his ranch? Do you honestly think a guilty pedo after Evan Chandler told him “i’m gonna ruin you” would not have eliminated every piece of incriminating evidence? He would have been in full panic mode oops I’ve been caught now make sure if they go to the police they don’t find anything, such as the books I’ve used to jerk off to for 10 years!
            You say MJ was so careful he somehow made sure he didn’t leave any DNA behind in June’s and Evan’s house even thought repeatedly masturbated on those mattresses. He was so careful that he installed the alarm in the hallway. He was so clever that managed to eliminate every note, letter, email, file, phone call, photo. forensic evidence that’s why there is no proof of any molestation. But you also think that he was so stupid that he left two nude boy books in a file cabinet in his bedroom even thought he knew the Chandlers could trigger a police investigation any day at least after Aug 4 1993.

            It’s really funny how Jim Thomas argued they didn’t find physical or medical evidence because someone cleaned the place before the raid knowing that the police would come. Really? But MJ made sure Boys will be boys and Boy a Photographic essay remained there in his room in a close file cabinet?
            Now that makes sense, indeed.

            Face it: The very fact that police found those books proves that he didn’t even remember having them and that proves he was not a pedo as a pedo would have used those books for sexual gratification many many times over those 10 years and would have destroyed them the moment
            a father threatened to accuse him.

            You are beating a dead horse. It’s totally irrelevant whether the book was made by pedos or what pedos think when they look at the pictures or what the pictures were like. It’s even possible that a pedo sent the books to MJ, after all they too fantasized about him we know that. All kinds of creeps targeted MJ, from crazy Billie Jeans to Daniel Kapon to NAMBLA.

            What you keep ignoring is that all the available evidence show that
            1. MJ didn’t buy this book, it was just one of many fans sent him over the years along with Boy a Photographic essay
            2. MJ didn’t page this book and didn’t even know what kind of pictures were inside so it doesn’t matter how explicit or not explicit they were
            3. MJ didn’t think about sex while looking at boys in their swimming trunks but their happiness and his own lost childhood and that’s not how pedophiles think, period
            4. MJ inscribed and signed the book, planned to return it to the fan then forgot about it like he did this with countless other items fans sent him and asked him to sign and return.

            If MJ had been interested in looking at teenage penises how come police didn’t find a single such picture in 2003? They found naked women, naked men, naked girls, bunch of hetero adult magazines, articles about G-spot, vintage nudist magazines which did not show genitalia at all but had old pictures of nude women which MJ DID buy….they found everything but
            pictures of frontal boy nudes.
            You think after 1993 he lost interest in them? Yeah man, what a typical pedo. All of a sudden he likes to look at vintage pictures of nude women.

            Zonen was so desperate that he lied about Cronos being found in MJ’s bedroom. In fact it was found in the arcade library which was in another building! Desperate desperate attempt to use these art photography books found all over the ranch as evidence of pedophilia especially when the only sexually explicit stuff MJ actually bought himself on a regular basis was all hetero and adult.

        • Hammer

          Yes he said that those who defend MJ don’t know what the picture were.
          Stop lying. The header was: “Ignore Above Commenters, They’ve Never Seen These Books”

          “and they have described in detail just how explicit the images are.”

          Again, those pictures were shown in court! Get it? Some of the pictures were suggestive IF you are a pedo and that’s who you want to look at them, but they were not explicit let alone pornographic.
          If they had been THAT explicit they couldn’t have published them in the first place and the book would not be in the Library of Congress. Those pictures were carefully chosen by the authors so they still could publish them but appeal to pedophiles because their imagination would run away with them. Sure if you are a pedo you will think about sex. But then again, pedos would think about sex while looking at ANY nude picture of boys. That won’t make it porn no matter how “explicit” you want to call them. If it had been porn everyone who ever stored or sold those books would have been charged and convicted. Funny how you keep ignoring that fact.

          “If any fan ever saw these books they would realize how ridiculous their current defenses are. ”

          Yeah right and all the jurors how saw those pictures in court are ridiculous too, huh? Except they learned a lot of facts about MJ’s library,
          how he got books all the time, how he hoarded books, and when you learn every fact about this book it actually proves that he was innocent.
          I posted those fact and you keep ignoring them goes on and on about how explicit the pictures were.
          Even if they had been that does not prove that MJ ever saw those pictures, ever wanted the book, let alone that
          he used it for sexual gratification. And if you accepted those fact you would realize he ridiculous your attacks are.

          The fact that this is the best “proof” you have against MJ shows how weak your case it.
          A book he didn’t even buy, didn’t even page, didn’t even remember having and didn’t even own after 1993 is your proof that he was a pedophile?
          This was just one of many many books which people sent him as gifts and if he had remembered it in 1993 and had been guilty he would have got rid of it at least before he went on tour as he would have been concerned that Chandler would go to the police and they would search his room in Neverland. Your entire narrative does not make any sense.

          “Even Michael Jackson realized this because he kept them locked away in a filing cabinet. ”

          1. LOL don’t you see how stupid that argument is?
          If he wanted to lock it away why the heck did he inscribe it like this:
          “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the
          life I want for my children. MJ.”
          He told himself to look at the boys’s happiness then hid the book from everyone? It’s obvious he planned to return it to the fan who sent it to him
          and a pedo would not do that! He would want to keep the book! And that inscription corroborates everything MJ said about kids and childhood
          over the years and the paintings and statutes he had in Neverland too. All of that points to one thing: that he wanted kids to be happy, he tried to recreated his childhood and genuinely cared about kids, he would never ever do anything that would violate them and would take away that happiness.

          2. So you think MJ first put the books that file cabinet then gave the key to his maid, the very woman whose son he was supposedly molesting? The
          very woman who had a key to his room? Does that make sense to you?

          3. How come police didn’t open that file cabinet when they had a locksmith with them? Why did they look for someone who had the key? How did
          they learn that Blanca Francia of all people had the key? Why did she
          who didn’t even work in Neverland for 2 years by then had the key? Sneddon never explained any of these. you know why?
          Because MJ didn’t put those books in that file cabinet at all. The police did who raided the ranch. yes they tried to frame him just like they lied about
          the nude photos of Jonathan Spence which didn’t exist, they tried to falsify fingerprint evidence at the grand jury hearing, they lied about not being
          sure whether Ed Templeton’s Golden age of neglect was child porn or not, they exaggerated Simen Johan’s art book Room to play, they put their
          worst spin on MJ’s art books when in fact no kid ever even claimed that MJ used those books to groom them, they tried to portray the 3T photoshoot pictures as something sinister, they lied to kids to make them accuse MJ and other words they conducted a witch-hunt.

          In reality MJ didn’t even remember having Boys will be boys and commented on the cover put it aside and it was lost among the thousands of books he had in Encino and in Neverland. That’s it.

          Fool who? Didn’t you say that he tried to hide the books from everyone that’s why he locked it in a file cabinet? It’s hilarious how you are all over the place and don’t even notice it.
          What do you think he did? After Evan Chandler threatened to accuse him in July 1993 MJ ran put that inscription in that book so in case there is a raid and police finds it they would be fooled?
          LOL, if he had been guilty and if he had known those books well he would have got rid of them the moment he learned that Evan Chandler had a plan to accuse him!

          MJ looked at those boys on the cover and envied their happy childhood. That’s it. And that’s not what a pedo would think while looking at boys in their swimming trunk.
          BTW If there had been a “plethora of boys’ anuses in the book” you can be sure Zonen would have made a big deal out of it but he never even mentioned anus ever. In fact he single out that one picture of a boy sitting on a bench with his legs open. I guess once again you think you are smarted then he is.

          Your comment about that innocent and revealing description just show much you don’t understand Michael Jackson and how rotten to the core you are. You see evil in him because you are evil yourself.
          For the jury, and for everyone who actually knew MJ, that inscription was just one piece of evidence that his interest in boys had nothing to do with sex. Just like Frank Cascio wrote in his book, and he knew it much better than you do having grown up with MJ since age 4:

          ” The bottom line: Michael’s interest in young boys had absolutely nothing to do with sex. I say this with the unassailable confidence of firsthand experience, the confidence of a young boy who slept in the same room as Michael hundreds of times, and with the absolute conviction of a man who saw Michael interact with thousands of kids. In all the years that I was close to him, I saw nothing that raised any red flags, not as a child and not as an adult. Michael may have been eccentric, but that didn’t make him criminal. ”

            Fool who? Didn’t you say that he tried to hide the books from everyone that’s why he locked it in a file cabinet?

            He had them out occasionally. Kiki Fournier found Boys Will Be Boys in the train room one day after Michael Jackson had been looking at it, and gave the book to MJ’s maid so it could be returned to his bedroom.

            As I said you should keep your mouth shut about those books (and that inscription) until you have seen them unless you want to keep looking foolish.

          • Liar! Kiki Fournier never testified that!

            You saw them which means that you owned child porn, at least according to Paul and other idiots. You got this books and looked at the pictures that makes you a pervert. Why did you have that book? Did you buy child porn? Hypocrite.

            You are lying. Kiki Fournier never testified about that book at all.
            Here’s her testimony:
            scribd.com/document/323687821/Kiki-Fournier-testimony
            Neither did any of the maids. No one ever testified that they saw MJ with Boys will be boys, period. You were caught in a contradiction now you make shit up to get out of the hole. But of course this story doesn’t make any sense either.
            If the book is so incriminating how could that inscription fool Kiki or the maid or anyone who could just open it and see the pictures themselves? Do you think they would think oh this is child porn but nevermind MJ wrote that thing in it so it’s OK?

            And he wanted to hide it from everyone that’s why you think he locked it in a file cabinet but was fine with it if Blanca Francia knew about it, who happened to have a son of that age! Yeah that’s very believable.

            The fact is there is absolutely no evidence that MJ ever looked inside Boys will be boys and knew what kind of pictures were in there. There is only evidence that he got is from a fan alone with Boy a Photographic Essay, he inscribed his thoughts based on the cover image which indicates that he wanted to return it to the fan as no one inscribes and sign a book for himself then forgot about it, it got lost among the thousands of books he had and he didn’t even remember having this book in 1993, since if he had used it for sexual gratification and if he had molested Chandler you can be sure he would have got rid of this book right after Evan Chandler threatened to accused him in July 1993 but at least before he left to go on tour.
            You can’t explain why a guilty pedo who would have been concerned about a possible raid on his ranch due to the Chandler threats would leave those books in his room.

            So you are missing the point. It does not matter what the pictures were, we know what they were because they were shown in court and were described by Zonen, Robson and you can be sure Zonen put the worst possible spin on it! The most suggestive pictures was even shown on Court TV. The point is that all the facts about this book prove that MJ was not a pedo, he didn’t buy it, he was not interested in it, he didn’t remember having it and he didn’t think about sex while looking at boys in their swimming trunks.

        • Susan

          So you owned this book and looked at the pictures? Then you bought and looked at child porn and you are a pedo and should be in jail.
          Unlike you Michael didn’t even bother to check the pictures inside this book.

      6. No there is absolutely no evidence that Brett Wade knew Zonen could show them those or any books.
      That’s your assumption nothing more. And of course if Brett or Wade had beem molested MJ woudln’t have wanted them to be cross-examined not to mention no competent lawyer would want that! Scott Ross talked to Wade several times, he is a seasoned private investigatior and one of his jobs was to decide whether a witness was believable and credible and he had no doubt that Wade was telling the truth.
      Listen to this interview with him: themjcast.com/episode-033-vindication-day-special-with-scott-ross/
      But of course you believe that Wade was such a good actor he could fool everyone, Scott Ross, Tom Mez, the jury, his mother, his sister, his brother, all the people who asked him about MJ over the years. BS. He was telling the truth for 20+ years. He is lying now for money. Common sense. Especially since he contradicts not only his own but his sister’s and mother’s 2005 sworn testimonies if they told the truth then then Robson is telling lies now, especially about the first US trip in 1990. The devil is in the details and those details reveal that Robson couldn’t have been molested during that first trip as he was never even alone in bed with MJ. Not once.

      7. Oh that amazing Jedi power MJ supposedly had! He could brainwash Wade a grown man so much that he withstood a lengthy cross-exam by Zonen but somehow he didn’t even try to brainwash Arvizo, Francia or Chandler so they would believe that the molestation was consensual sex. In case you forgot Chandler, Arvizo
      Francia never made such claims! It’s ridiculous.
      Wade was not coached and that is clear from his reaction to the those books and magazines, he didn’t even know where they came from and his reaction was spontaneous. He even joked when he was looking at the adult magazines
      which a real abuse victim who supposedly saw those magazines while his abuser was grooming him would not do.
      In fact it could be a major trigger! But Wade’s entire testimony was confident and that of a man who For that matter if Mj would not have wanted an actual victim to be cross-examined by Zonen , especially since his testimony was not crucial, Blanca Francia was discredited during cross-exam well enough.

      8. The very idea that a 23 year old mentally capable MAN could be coached to not know what porn is, not know that rape is wrong, not know that sex between a man and a boy is not consensual is absurd and impossible especially since Wade stated in his lawsuit that MJ supposedly told him over the phone “they are saying we did these disgusting sexual stuff”. But Robson somehow still didn’t understand that
      what MJ did was disgusting sexual stuff? He still believe it was an act of love and consensual? Come on.

      9. How come Chandler, Francia Arvizo never claimed that MJ tried to brainwashed them in a similar fashion?
      It’s only Robson and Safechuck who says this , the ones who need to explain somehow why the statutes of limitation does not apply, otherwise they couldn’t get money. Way too obvious what they are doing.

      10. Wade has been caught in numerous lies and you know it. His probate claim was dismissed over the big fat lie that he didn’t know about the administration of the Estate before March 2013. But he is not doing this for money, right?
      This is a money grab and you know it. They are not desperate for a settlement which is why he replaced his lawyers with those whose “expertise” is to get settlement with various bullying tactics and trying to win the case in the media, including collaborating with Radar Online. Their most recent maneuvers over the mental exam and the deposition is further evidence that Robson is not honest , of course he didn’t want that 1 hour deposition because he is suddenly suicidal
      thank god the judge didn’t buy his BS.

      11. Stop for a moment and consider, if these were photos of 12 year old girls, would you be so forgiving?
      Forgiving? There is nothing to forgive. I have been fully aware that there are art photography of nude children just like there is art photography of nude adults. Which planet are you living on? Of course I don’t think that pictures of nude girls is porn! Are you kidding? And I am not the only one since Simen Johan’s pictures are not only available on Amazon, in the Library of Congress
      but have been in mainstream museum in the US! Look:
      beforeitsnews.com/awesome-time-wasters/2012/12/incredible-photo-gallery-by-photographer-simen-johan-2445448.html
      Why don’t you go and complain that pictures of nude little girls , and pictures of child head with older bodies should not be tolerated in museums, bookstores, libraries? You are ridiculous. What’s next? Do you want a book burning of everything that YOU consider porn?

      12. A boy sitting with his legs open is not the same as girl siting with her legs open and you know it. Women rarely sit with their legs open, men do it all the time. In any case there is no doubt that the authors of Boys will be boys deliberately included a few suggesting pictures among a bunch of innocent art photography to appeal to pedophiles. However that won’t make it child porn and that won’t prove that MJ himself ever saw those pictures let alone that he used them for sexual gratification. In fact the facts about those books, and MJ’s clear interested in hetero adult sex prove the opposite.

      13, “A man that owns suggestive nudes of boys and sleeps with boys the same age as those depicted in those photos is a pedophile; as would be a man that owns suggestive nudes of girls and sleeps with girls the same age as those depicted.”

      That’s a bunch of bull. Once again your ignore a lot of facts and cherry-pick evidence then create a story which was not Mj’s life but your fantasy.
      A pedophile would not just wait for some stranger to send him such books, then would want to return it, then not bother to obtain similar pictures for years and years and years while buying pictures of nude women and hetero magazines and visiting hetero websites and downloading pics of nude women at the same time
      and that’s exactly what MJ were doing don’t deny it it’s court proven fact!
      Owning a book, especially if you are someone who gets books from others all the time and is a hoarder of books like MJ, in and of itself proves nothing! Show me the evidence that MJ wanted to have Boys will be boys, paged that book, knew what pictures were in there and looked at those pictures many times over the 10 years while he owned the book. Where is the fingerprint evidence we saw from the adult magazines?
      Do you honestly believe he knew all the books he ever owned? I own about 300 books and even I don’t know what’s in many of them. But yeah MJ sure knew every page of his 10 000 books in Neverland. Ridiculous. MJ shared his bed with girls too and he had books with nude girls too. So that proves he molested girls? He shared his room and bed with men and had books made made by gay artists even a gay sex book? Does that make him gay? Nope.

      A. That MJ shared his bed with boys proves nothing not the least because he also shared his bed with girls, men and women over the year including his adult sister, grown Brett Barnes, Karen Faye even Jane Goodall. Bedsharing is not sex especially not for someone like MJ who grew up sharing rooms and beds with other all the time, including unrelated adults. Here, MJ sharing a bed with Emmanuel Lewis. Do you see anything sexual there? Do you think if MJ had been up to no good he would let such a picture be taken?
      vindicatemj.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/in-a-bed-with-emmanuel-lewis1.jpg
      Emmanuel Lewis is just one of men who were close to MJ while they were kids and have been absolutely adamant that there was nothing sexual about MJ, he was like a brother to them, in fact MJ himself considered Lewis a brother as this inscribed book clearly indicates:
      “To Emmanuel Rubba I love you like a brother you are my spiritual brother love Michael P.S. Keep the grits coming.”
      julienslive.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/20/lot/4763/MICHAEL-JACKSON-BOOK-INSCRIBED-TO-EMMANUEL-LEWIS
      And no Rubba did not mean anything sexual either LOL Safechuck tries that BS he got it from Dimond no doubt. Just more proof he is liar and wrote his story with the help of Stacy Brown, Dimond and their tabloid junk.

      Moreover the very boys who had the most sleepovers with him stated repeatedly
      and still do as grown man that MJ never did anything sexual with them. And no they don’t have a reason to lie Chandler, Robson, Safechuck had and have millions of reasosn to lie and if fact have been caught in lies.
      A person who changes his story, who tells obvious and proven lies, who don’t go to the police but a trial lawyer who uses underhanded legal tactics in an effort to get a settlement is not an abuse victim but an opportunist false accuser.

      B. There is no evidence that MJ ever even looked at those “suggestive nudes of boys” let alone that he did it repeatedly. There is evidence that he looked at naked women, hetero adult sex for years however. He admitted buying those hetero adult magazines he didn’t buy the nude boy books.

      C. Read above why those two nude boy books actually proves he didn’t act like a pedophile at. Just don’t ignore all the fact about those books and the context in which they were found.

    There is no double standard.
    If a man was defended by as many kids as MJ had been even after growing up even after he died,
    if a man’s accusers were as dubious and proven liars as Mj’s accusers have been
    if a man had a lifelong history of caring about and loving boys, girls babies all over the world like MJ had
    if a man had grown up sharing his bed and room with others and considered allowing others to sleep in his bed an act of kindness
    if a man collected hetero adult magazines for 12 years,
    if a man had only hetero adult stuff and pics of naked women on his computer
    if a man had articles about the G-spot among his hetero adult magazines,
    if a man was known to repeatedly date, check out, flirt with women, despite being a Jehova Witness
    if a man had only expressed attraction toward girsl and women ever since he was a young teen to the very end
    if a man’s wife said over and over and over again that they had a normal marriage
    if that wife said she became obsessed with the man and followed him for years after the divorce
    if a man had been seen by various people making out with women
    if a man shared his room and bed with men, women, girls boys alike
    if a man built a place like Neverland, filled it with adults including policemen
    if a man slept over the parents’s home dozens of times being totally unconcerned that the parents can walk in the room at any moment
    if a man invited the fathers and mothers to his ranch and on tour while he had sleepovers with their kids
    if a man had a 10 000 strong library with hundreds of art and photography books
    if a man received books from fans and photographers all the time and had a tendency not to throw such gifts away
    if a man had a history of being interested in art and photography since he was a child
    if a man had artbooks with nude men, nude women, nude girls and nude boys alike
    if a man had medical evidence that his accusers never saw his naked body and genitalia
    If a man’s accusers were coached by mentally ill parents one of them with a history of making false a sex abuse claims
    the other being caught on tape talking about a “plan” to “humiliate the man beyond his worst nightmare” unless the parent “gets what he wants”
    if a man’s accuser was too coward to even show up in court an be cross-examined

    then you can be sure I would never say that man was a pedophile, I would say he is a man who is a bibliophile, who loved art and photography and so he had hundreds of such books among them a few books with nude men, nude women, nude boys and nude girls as that is part of art photography and always has been. I would say that man simply does not associate sharing his room and bed with other sexual. That man definitely loves looking at naked women and hetero adult sex. I would say that man has been targeted by greedy opportunist and their coached kids who used his kindness and childlike nature and generosity against him in order to make millions.

    Bottom line: there is not one pedophile who is even remotely like MJ and those who say his behavior was typical of a pedophile should name just one person who lived his life like he did, how had the kinds of innocent brotherly relationship with kids like MJ had with Frank, Eddie, Aldo, Dom, Marie Nicole Cascio, Brett and Karlee Barnes, Mac, Kirean , Quinn and Dakota Culkin, Emmanuel Lewis, Sean Lennon, Mark Ronson, Kelly Parker, Amy Agajanian, DAvid Agajanian, Alfonso Riberio, Stephen Gibb, Michael Gibb, Gotham Chopra, Omer Batthi, Bryton McClure, Dave Dave and many others.
    He had the exact same kind of innocent relationship with Jordan Chandler, Jimmy Safechuck and Wade Robson that’s why all three of them changed their story, contradicted themselves and their parents, and WANTED / WANT MONEY and MONEY only!

    I’m a mother, and when I flipped through the more than 200 pages of Boys Will Be Boys I was shocked.

    Nestled in between the pages of “normal” photographs of young males, there are photographs of naked prepubescent boys stretched out in erotic poses on rocks near a stream. A frightened-looking pre-teen, wearing nothing but tennis shoes, is seen from below, precariously climbing a gnarled tree.

    There are what some might call “art” photographs of nude young boys bathed in dramatic lighting – one highlighting the torso of a boy with glistening beads of water on his chest. Four different boys are featured on one page, each with something in his mouth – a banana, a hot dog, bottles of soda.

    The boys in the book were photographed in all different environments. Boys are seen posed in the forest, the playground and the bedroom. There are dozens of pictures of unclothed boys frolicking in water.

    Joe Gelfand, a retired NYPD child sex crimes detective, has studied the book with an experienced eye. “I’ve made many arrests in my day, and many times we’ve seen photographs like this in the homes of pedophiles.”

    Gelfand said when he looked at the faces in the book, he saw tragedy. “There was someone behind that camera deliberately posing these boys like this,” he said. “I see them as victims.”

      It doesn’t matter how shocked you are or whether Getland or anyone imagines victims. If you are a pedo or you think about pedophilia you will see that when you look at those pictures. A pedo would think about sex whenever he sees naked boys or girls anyway. The bottom line is that if MJ had been guilty of molesting anyone and if he had used this book over the years he would have got rid of it right after Evan Chandler threatened to accuse him in July 1993! The very fact that the police found this book proves that MJ didn’t even remember having it and what he told Sawyer was the truth: some fan sent it to him and he didn’t even look into it.
      If you scroll up and read the posts This book proves MJ was not a pedo you will understand why context is everything and just because a book can be used by pedophiles and was one of the thousands of books in Neverland does not mean MJ was a pedophile himself.

      And another policeman, LAPD sergeant Mike LaPerruque who actually knew Michael Jackson and worked for him for years said this:

      Under oath he will testify that he’s had experience with child molesters in his 22 years as a cop, and that Jackson does not fit the profile. He said he has two kids, and he would feel comfortable with either one of them — a boy and a girl — spending time with Jackson.

      foxnews.com/story/2004/03/12/jacko-security-guard-singer-is-innocent.html

      How many of those pedophiles Getland investigated had these kind of thoughts?

      “Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.”

      Look at the book cover then you will understand why Jackson wrote this. I don’t think he cared about the “shocking” pictures. It sounds like he was jealous of their childhood. He didn’t collect pictures of nude boys after all whatever nude boys were found were in books not on standalone photos and police found books with nude people of all ages but then again he had thousands of books in his library and who knows how they got there or whether he ever opened them. If he had been a pedophile he would have had actual child porn like Jared Fogle not a bunch of Playboy and Penthouse and stuff like that.

    Paul, do you really think Michael needed Plumpers , Juggs 44 Plus and Double Dicking Caroline to groom young boys? Really?
    Do you really think he needed all these magazines and DVDs and files to lower the inhibition of kids? 20 or 40 wouldn’t have sufficed?
    Do you understand that Chandler never claimed to see any of these magazines, DVDs or files?
    Do you understand no child ever mentioned any of these until the Arvizo boys thought they could just walk in Michael’s private suite and do whatever they wanted?
    Why is it you only cite tabloids and the prosecution’s ideas and never say anything about the facts the defense presented?
    This is from the defense’s closing argument, explains why it was the Arvizos who first complained Michael showed them porn, and why you should not believe them:

    1 He’s not charged with possessing any illegal pornography, because no illegal pornography was found. Everything they found in his home was lawful. That was clear. He’s not charged with showing adult material to children. That’s not one of the charges here. They’re doing that to dirty him up, and try to get you to somehow make it easier for you to convict him.

    5 Now, Mr. Zonen yesterday made a broad statement to you, and you have to take his broad
    7 statements and put them under a microscope in the jury room. He said, “Michael Jackson shows adult
    9 material to kids.” My question to you is, who? Macaulay Culkin never said he showed him
    12 anything. Wade Robson never said he showed him anything. Brett Barnes never said he showed him
    14 anything. Jordie Chandler didn’t testify. And even Jason Francia, who said he was improperly tickled,
    16 never testified that Mr. Jackson showed him any adult material.
    18 The only people who have come before you to say they were shown adult material by Mr. Jackson
    20 are con artists, actors and liars. And the only forensic evidence they had to
    22 hang their hat on are fingerprints on some girlie magazines that were owned by Michael Jackson. And
    24 you know that everywhere the Arvizo children went, they would rummage through drawers, rummage through
    26 the house. They did it at the dentist’s office. They did it in Vernee Watson Johnson’s home. This
    28 is the way they behave. And unfortunately, Michael was rather lax
    2 and generous, as Kiki Fournier said, too generous in
    3 letting people run through his room, run through his
    4 house, run through Neverland. And he’s paying a
    5 price for it right now. But it’s not a crime.

    A molester would not need all these to groom kids.
    All these stuff prove that Michael was a straight guy who liked straight porn like millions of other guys.

  30. Gross misrepresentation of the facts

    This book is not porn if it was every publication or work of art showing naked children should be considered porn and there are plenty even in national libraries and various museums. There are many paintings and statutes one could characterize as suggestive, it that’s how your mind runs. I’m sure the authors knew the line they couldn’t cross in order to be able to publish and sell this book.
    When it comes to Michael Jackson the media only gives airtime to the prosecution’s lies and tabloids never the defense. Michael didn’t buy this book and this it not the kind of stuff he found sexually exciting. His actual porn was all adult and he plenty of that. If this book proves he liked boys what do more than 70 Hustlers Playboys prove?

    Here’s the defense’s take on this issue. I just don’t see how anyone could conclude Michael was sexually attracted to boys when taken all the stuff police found in his home together:

    18 In a library of thousands and thousands of
    19 books, they found a couple of books that focused on
    20 men. And they wanted you to think that somehow Mr.
    21 Jackson was some — I don’t know whether they’re
    22 trying to say he’s a gay man, or, as Mr. Zonen in
    23 his mean questioning, try to suggest he’s asexual.
    24 They’re not sure which way they’re going. But
    25 basically they went through this home where
    26 thousands and thousands of books have accumulated,
    27 where the evidence was, that when fans around the
    28 world sent things to Mr. Jackson, he keeps 12891
    1 everything like a pack rat.
    2 And what do they find? They found this
    3 book, “Boys Will Be Boys” – okay? – published in New
    4 York in 1966. Yes, it has some naked pictures of
    5 boys. It also has pictures that are not naked,
    6 okay?
    7 And what does it say, what is inscribed in
    8 the book? It says, “Look at the true spirit of
    9 happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the
    10 spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will
    11 always dream of. This is the life I want for my
    12 children, MJ.”
    13 Now, you’ve already seen the outtakes where
    14 Mr. Jackson talks about his not having a childhood.
    15 He was working clubs at a young age at 3:00 in the
    16 morning —
    17 MR. ZONEN: Your Honor, I’ll object to this
    18 matter as exceeding the scope of the Court ruling.
    19 MR. MESEREAU: Your Honor, the prosecution
    20 talked similarly about Bashir.
    21 MR. ZONEN: It’s the outtakes.
    22 THE COURT: The objection is sustained on
    23 that.
    24 MR. MESEREAU: Is this the sign of a
    25 pedophile? To write an inscription in a published
    26 book of this sort?
    27 The other book, “The Boy: A Photographic
    28 Essay,” says, “To Michael: From your fan, Rhonda,” 12892
    1 with a little heart. “1983, Chicago,” it says in
    2 it.
    3 Now, Mr. Zonen didn’t know what to do with
    4 that so he suggested through his questioning on
    5 cross-examination that maybe somebody had faked it.
    6 But there’s no evidence anybody faked that. They
    7 seized these things in the early ‘90s.
    8 And was there any evidence that these books
    9 were ever shown to any witness? No. Not one
    10 witness came into this courtroom and said, “Michael
    11 Jackson showed me books of men.” Not one.
    12 Now, we’re asking you to use your common
    13 sense in this area of alleged pedophilia.
    14 First of all, they never put a pedophilia
    15 expert on the stand, because they were afraid.
    16 Having all of these heterosexual books and magazines
    17 doesn’t add up to pedophilia, okay?
    18 What do you typically find? You find
    19 illegal child pornography, websites galore,
    20 pictures. None of that came in. And, yes, the
    21 prosecution suggested they would prove that, and
    22 none of it was found at Neverland. No websites of
    23 pedophilia. No child sex pictures on websites. No
    24 photographs. None of the things you typically
    25 associate with a pedophile.
    26 And their biggest problem is repeated
    27 editions of “Hustler” and “Playboy” and “Penthouse”
    28 and “Barely Legal” do not equate with what they’re 12893
    1 trying to prove. I’m not saying it’s necessarily
    2 commendable that you have all these magazines, but
    3 you can get them at any newsstand and there’s been
    4 no evidence that anything was illegal.
    5 And if Mr. Jackson has been proven to like
    6 to read these magazines for years and years and
    7 years, how does that equate to their theory that he
    8 wanted to sexually touch a male child?
    9 It doesn’t. There’s a problem with their
    10 case. And as I said before, not one of these books
    11 they found, among thousands, of males was shown to a
    12 single witness. No illegal child pornography,
    13 either in a website or anywhere else. No websites
    14 where you try to meet children, like pedophiles
    15 often do, and the rest.

    Why was child porn ….err…..a photo of a nude young boy which prominently displayed his genitalia, on the shortlist for the Taylor Wessing photography award in 2015 and why did the Guardian promote it?

    Anoush Abrar, a photographer born in Iran who now lives and teaches in Lausanne, Switzerland, is shortlisted for Hector, a photograph of a young boy inspired by his fascination with Caravaggio, and particularly the artist’s 1608 painting Sleeping Cupid.
    “Somehow I needed to make my own Sleeping Cupid,” he said. “I found my portrait of Hector so powerful and iconic that it inspired me to continue this project as a series called Cherubs.”

    Paul, would you please demand that Amazon stop selling Sally Mann’s art book too? It has pictures of nude underage children. Looks like Amazon are a bunch of pervs. Well, at least if you are a hypocritical liar like you, Paul.

    “Mann’s subjects are her small children (a boy, a girl and a new baby), often shot when they’re sick or hurt or just naked”

    Amazon is selling Pere Formiguera’s photos of nude boys and girls too. How come you don’t call that child porn? How come you don’t call Pere Formiguera a pedo?

      How come you don’t call Pere Formiguera a pedo?

      Does Pere Formiguera befriend young boys, take them on vacation with him, sleep in the same bed with them, and the boys said he molested them? If yes, he probably is.

    I just visited Amazon and saw the posting of this book. It is NOT pornography. Michael Jackson isn’t mentioned — as a selling point or in any other capacity. The various reviews of the book also don’t mention Jackson in any capacity — even as a person who once owned a copy. The book’s only material value is in its age, rarity, its representation of childhood at a particular time in history and (possibly) if the book were inscribed by a famous owner. The book is being offered by third-party sellers associated with Amazon — at astonomically absurd prices. It’s unlikely that Jackson’s inscribed copy is among these. Otherwise, Julian’s Auction House would have swooped down and grabbed it up long ago.
