It is one thing, for a small child to crawl into bed, with his/her parents, it is quite another, for a young teenager, to be in bed with an UNRELATED 45-year-old "man". This is not "normal".

Yes, he may sleep with childen, but that's all he does. SLEEP. He wants children to feel loved, maybe because he didn't feel that when he was a child. I remember that when I was little and I was scared or had a bad dream, I climbed into my parent's bed or my older brother's bed because I wanted to be near someone who loved me. It made me feel protected. Micheal is only trying to make children feel protected. Maybe he is naive to the society we now live in. A society where any kind of touching between adults and kids who are not relatives is wrong. Some people are not bad, I know it's hard to believe. Adults should not be afraid of simply hugging a child to make them feel better.

Personally I don't know enough about this to decide whether I think he's innocent or not, what worries me though is that he has been in this position before.
If he was truly innocent first time around why has he put himself in this position again, you'd think after the last lot of allegations he'd make sure contact with any child that wasn't family would be chaperoned (sp?) and that sharing a bed with them, however innocent it may be, would be off limits, to protect himself and the child from allegations like this.
IMO he's self-destructing. (I hope you understand what I mean.... I couldn't think of the right phrase... mental block!)

Maybe this IS starting to get to him, though: his makeup was a mess, lipliner crooked and lipstick not filled in, unshaven, eyebrows ungroomed and his eyeliner was smeared. His nose IS still attached (maybe with spirit gum).
