Nooooo. NOOOOOOO. Goddammit. Today, in absolutely awful news, Radar Online released what are apparently police reports from 2003 with information about a whole lot of child pornography, as well as images of S&M and animal torture, seized from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch during his child molestation investigation. Cops also searched a rented storage space into which, sources told police, materials were moved after the investigation had started. To refresh your memory, Jackson was charged with (seven counts of) child molestation and giving an intoxicant to a minor (only two counts there), but was acquitted of the charges in 2005. Which seems even more incredible in the face of all this evidence.
Among the items found were pictures of adult bodies with children's faces superimposed on them, "sexy" pictures of his nephews in their underwear, pictures of bleeding children and animals (including a photo of a child holding what looks like a goose bludgeoned to death), diaries, audiotapes, videotapes, and prescription drugs to treat sex addiction. One insider claimed that Jackson had a book called Room To Play, which included a picture of a JonBenet Ramsey lookalike with a noose around her neck.
Ron Zonen, a former Santa Barbara D.A. who was on the prosecution team, told Radar: "A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children." He added, "We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation."
The report can be read in full here (there are 88 pages, although apparently pages one through three are missing), for any morbidly curious people who want to know more.
