Well, I don't agree that Michael Jackson should be the punk for some guy named Bubbah, but if he did what he did, then it would sure serve alot of revenge on our imaginations.
This is just my opinion but: Michael Jackson is a freak of nature. He's a 13 year old boy, caught in a 45-year-old body. His thinking is *not* normal, by any stretch of the imagination. In his mind, he's still thirteen, and it bothers his mind that his body is 45. So he constantly tries to make his face come into congruence with his thoughts. He hangs around all these kids because he honestly wants to PLAY with them! Seems normal to him. His thinking processes are not normal. When he performs, he is just doing what he does best, with what he has.. but he can't deal with the real life adult world. To him, he was just doing what came naturally. Playing with other kids.
Unfortunately, he *is* an adult and must live in the adult world, and pay the consequences like an adult, no matter what his mental age. He's a very sick man, I believe, and *if* he is convicted of this, he needs to get extensive help with his problems.
My best bet is that he will commit suicide before all of this is done. He is NOT used to so much scrutiny on the most very private aspects on his life, and wants to control the media to his advantage. Admittedly, he has done a LOT for charities, and brought a LOT of joy to a LOT of kids in his lifetime, and to his fans. But he doesn't want to be known for a dark side. When the last accusation came out, he married Lisa Marie Presley. He does NOT want to be known as a pedophile, or a bad person. Pedophiles don't exist in his world, that's BAD and he's not BAD (even though he had an album entitled that).
He will not be able to stand the public scrutiny that will come from a trial, for that to happen he will have to bare his most private life, and Michael Jackson is so proud and arrogant that he would rather die than to have his fans see him at his worst, in a trial. Just my two cents.
