Presumption of innocence! Due process!

This guy was a known predator for ages. I mean I was hearing jokes about it in the 90s.

Shame on everyone around him who looked the other way for so long. They made this possible.

He certainly should have his day in court, but make no mistake, The sexual allegations and rumors swirling about him have been going for years and years and it’s time to find out if they are true or not, but I have this gnawing feeling....

I am a firm believer that most of the allegations against him are true. I hope that this time this monster ends up behind bars. He’s preyed on teens for too long.

There is no presumption of innocence here. He has simply gotten away with it many times because he knows how to pick his demographics.

One glaring example is Aaliyah. He married her when she was 15. He said he didn’t know her age when they got married. However, numerous interviews and promotions quoted him saying “she might be 15 but she sings as if she’s been singing for decades.” He’s also gushed about how talented she is for 15. All these were prior to the marriage.
