I was wrong for many years
14 March 2019 | by daniel_englundSee all my reviews

Two camps - one fighting to protect their innocent star, the other trying to prosecute what they believe is a pedophile and abuser. The truth about MJ - was he or was he not? Will we ever know the truth?

Two men and their testimonies unfolds a new perspective of the man in the mirror. Their words made me see MJ in a different light - a dark and tragick light filled with sadness, secrets and lies. I'm sure alot has to do with MJ's own childhood, and the abuse from his father Joe.

MJ's music is great and he was the King of Pop.. a legend. But he was also an abuser and a sick man who should have been punished for his crimes.
