Should the dead be put on trial?
Closed

Michael Jackson is still making headlines for alleged child abuse. The latest documentary "Leaving Neverland" is built around in-depth interviews with two men who say they were abused by the singer as children.

Do you think it's right for people to make these claims when he can no longer defend himself? Is it a form of justice or just a publicity/money grab?

Its not a case of putting the dead on trial but allowing the damaged living to get justice (if indeed they are telling the truth, that's for the court to decide). So yes, I agree that abuse cases should be brought to help the abused.

We are all stuck with our lives being on trial. To myself the question is not so much that he is on trial but that it is an issue of child abuse. Society needs to judge carefully and see if it is all for money. It is awful but child abuse is one of those things that generally can only be discussed by the youngsters when they have grown up AND often after the one involved is no longer powerful. But the accused still needs his/her side of the story shared. There are surely those who will do that.

It makes no sense going on about this when the guy is dead and why didn't they come out and say these things when he was here to address them, pure publicity I think.

No! It's disgusting they are making these claims after he's long gone & I am sure they are just money hungers! Looking to get their few minutes of fame, bloody liars!

The harmed persons have a right to justice and acknowledgement of injury. It also helps people deal with it when they are heard.

Justice is justice, and if there are victims, they deserve it, at very least!
