Children don´t lie?

  by Helena on

The videotape below tells us of a scam in which one Canadian boy made false allegations against Michael Jackson in 1995. Diane Dimond did her research and proved it to be a complete lie.

Most people will say we should be happy that an honest report like this has been made and shown on TV. But to me the tape gives terribly conflicting emotions. Yes, on the one hand the report does show that some people could go out of their way in slandering Michael Jackson and that children can lie and do it very convincingly. But on the other hand I very much question the motives of Diane Dimond and her goals in making this report at all. Let us watch the tape, think it over and compare our opinions later, OK?

Here are the most important snatches of the text I managed to write down which are put here at random as they do not make up the full transcript (you don´t have to read them as they may affect your impartiality):

Diane Dimond: “When I heard of this fax I had to go to Canada and check it out myself.”

We spoke for hours. He never wavered, his story staying consistent.

When Jackson invited the boy to visit Neverland off they flew in a private jet.

He described in detail the people in Jackson´s entourage, the layout of Neverland ranch and even Jackson´s family home at Enchino.

We conducted hours of interview.

He had an incredible knowledge of Michael Jackson´s lifestyle.

— “People will think you are out for his money”

— “I don´t care for his money”

We showed the boy several photographs. Some of them were of Neverland employees and he was able to identify each and every one of them.

Always he came back to his claims of molestation.

Someone was behind all this.

From the very beginning the boy repeatedly said he didn´t want any money from Michael Jackson. What was his motivation?

He said he wanted justice.

He was about to give a sworn statement to the police. For six solid hours police questioned the boy.

John Templeton whose real name was Rodney Allen was on the phone with us claiming that another Jackson family member had molested him years ago.

He had never offered any solid proof of this claim.

— “The boy gave me all sorts of information about Neverland, Disneyland, about Michael´s body. Where did he get all this information?”

— “He got it from me. I didn´t implant it in his head. He asked me questions and I answered them the best I can. I told him what I could tell him about the place because I want Michael to face it”

— “This kid is a number one liar?”

— “Professional”.

The whole story was a scam.

Meanwhile back at the police-station the boy finally broke down.

He admitted that he and Rodney Allen had made up the whole story.

A Toronto street kid meets a man obsessed with the Michael Jackson case and the result could have been an international scandal”.
