Re: Redemption: A New Michael Jackson Movie
I can see Jordan believing maybe it happened because of Victor, "I did my part", which goes in with the idea he may have believed he did something good just by lying about it because he could let others come forward. He knew nothing happened to himself but he could've been convinced by the others that Michael did these things in other ways. Like, though Jordan knew many of the other kids like Brett, Cascio's, Macaulay, Wade, etc, and saw none of them seemed molested or anything weird happening, his father and Victor were making up fantasies to explain it, that Michael only did it at certain times, in certain ways, blah blah. Evan was disturbed, Victor was a man on a mission.
I think he was convinced to go along with it for other reasons (father being abusive, money), but I still can believe he was partly convinced just because Victor was so convincing. We have Evan on the phone acting like child abuse is not abuse, in the book he even says that, the graphic details about Brett being sexually abused on that penis drawing. Victor had everyone convinced, Diane Dimond, the entire DA in Santa Barbara who used his book as the absolute gospel and Sneddon would raise questions to witnesses directly using that book, Maureen Orth, Bashir. Sneddon was also trying to convince people from 1993-2004 about Michael by claiming the penis description was an "exact match", he kept telling everyone that though the Chandler's themselves didn't want to use it in their own civil lawsuit, and he was also telling people that MJ had books full of naked kids. We got to see what those books really were in 2005, but because of that Ray got to walk around everywhere claiming MJ had hardcore child porn for a while. So they could've justified it in that way. Also Jason Francia and the endless news coverage from 1993-2003 which obsessed over every male child photographed with Michael, at one point Michael was in his garden with his cousins flying kites and playing with water balloons and Carole Lieberman told the National Enquirer the photos showed Michael was aroused around children, and MJ was photographed with a "nephew" named Anthony while on his "honeymoon" with Debbie and the National Enquirer said, "but Michael doesn't have any nephews named Anthony!!!!" like Mike lied about being related to him, when it was Anthony Jackson, Michael's cousin
whose father had just died (Taraborrelli also included this story in his book making MJ sound creepy, saying MJ just "called him" his cousin, like MJ was just making it up). Evan Chandler was collecting everything like that.
It's interesting he shut out June, who was the one who didn't believe it until the psychiatrist interview, so she never spoke to him again. Never got to ask him about it, never got to see how he would respond about it. I wonder what Evan told Jordan about June to get her out for good.
LOL how dare you post a Jordan Tracking Blog!
