There are many people in America who look at porn and apparently the late megastar Michael Jackson was one of them. However, the nature of his collection has shed a disturbing light on Jackson’s sexual proclivity. New reports have been released detailing a 2003 police raid on Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. The raid was part of the sensational child sex abuse case against Jackson that rocked the entertainment world.  According to the report, images and video were found that included men, women, boys and girls in sexual positions. Also found were images of pornography, animal torture, and bondage.

Jackson’s critics say these images were used to seduce young boys. During the investigation, District Attorney Tom Sneddon’s office wrote in the charges against the entertainer, “The materials described … are relevant to the issues of the defendant’s intent and his method of ‘grooming’ young boys to satisfy his lewd desires.” Additionally, former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, who helped prosecute Jackson, stated in a recent media interview, “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time. 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.”

Jackson faced up to 20 years in prison on child sex abuse charges; however, a jury acquitted him of all charges in June 2005. Before his overdose death at the age of 50 in 2009, Jackson was rumored to have paid out millions in confidential settlements to persons who accused him of sexual abuse. His estate is now worth several billion and there is a strong chance that other alleged victims may at some point file civil suits. Some say that this new information on Jackson is an attempt to further tarnish the legacy of Black entertainers.
