The Freak Goes Too Far

I really have no particular animus against Michael Jackson – I still love a lot of his music and who doesn’t have a big soft spot for the Jackson Five?

But we have got to keep the freak away from the kids: he expresses his “love” in peculiar at best, and dangerous at worst, ways:

    Michael Jackson rewarded fans outside his Berlin hotel with a brief appearance and a glimpse of his youngest child – dangling the toddler over a fourth-floor balcony.

    The boy, his legs kicking, had what appeared to be a white cloth over his head as Jackson, briefly holding the child with one arm, displayed him Tuesday to dozens of fans waiting below the window of the luxurious Adlon Hotel.

    The child, in a baby blue jumper, was the reclusive singer’s third and youngest, Prince Michael II, said Antje Sigesmund, a spokeswoman for the Bambi entertainment award ceremony, which Jackson is attending in Berlin. [from AP]

What in God’s name was he thinking, dangling a squirming toddler off a fourth-floor balcony??? Is he insane, criminally reckless, sadistic, or just an outrageous asshole?

What could possibly justify holding a small child – WITH ONE ARM – over thin air 40 feet off of the ground? Was he giving the fans a better view, maximizing the photo-op? He should be charged with child endangerment right now – click on the link above for all the evidence needed to convict the freak. Some people just can’t be trusted with the responsibility of children – the Albino Alien is surely one of them.
