the Michael Jackson Legacy Defamation Law Petition

Post by happychick » Mon Jan 03, 2011 3:36 am

Many of us, world wide, have had a difficult time since Michael Jackson’s passing, but his spirit continues to dwell among us, and there is strength in his presence. We have mourned, been angry, and felt confused. Now we have the opportunity to make a difference; to stand up for and make a change.

Since June 25, 2009, there have been many wonderful and loving tributes to Michael Jackson, which have been short-lived. There have also been many unkind, untrue, and hateful references to Michael, which seem to continue. Protecting and preserving the truth is the reason for this message. We are disgusted and frustrated with the amount of rubbish that continues to be paraded as fact about Michael Jackson. In looking for a way to stop the flow of distortion, we have learned that there is nothing to stop the defamation of someone who has passed on.

Michael devoted his life to demonstrating love. He encouraged us to change the world. There is no better way to honor Michael than to make positive changes wherever we can. One of the ways we can make an important difference is to work for a law to be passed that makes it illegal to defame the dead. The focus of this effort is to have such a law passed in California, because that is where Michael spent much of his life, and where his family lives.

Although the viciousness toward Michael has eased, the residue of tarnish on his name and reputation remains. It is time for us to “Make That Change”. The life and legacy of Michael Jackson should be celebrated with respect in the United States, and around the world.

We are all familiar with the level of unfair media attention heaped upon Michael in the past. Journalists hid behind freedom of speech in an attempt to destroy Michael Jackson for entertainment and profit. The freedom of speech is a right that we all enjoy in the United States, and to lose any part of that freedom would be a travesty. However, with freedom comes responsibility. Each of us has a duty to be honest, fair, and balanced in what we say. Journalists, those from whom the masses get their information, should he held to an even higher standard. It is ugly enough to attack someone while they are here, but to continue to promote old lies, innuendo, and hate once they can no longer speak for themselves is reprehensible.

We will no longer passively accept this disrespectful and cruel assassination of Michael’s name. It is time to come together and take action right now. Throughout his life, Michael relied on his faith in God to bring him strength. We can also call on God for strength and direction in making this law a reality.

Help us to convince the California Government to put a law in place that would prevent the media and uncredible others from feeding on the reputations of those who have passed on, please endorse this petition. There is strength in numbers, and many voices create a mighty roar.

Quite honestly, as much as I don't like what the media does to MJ as any other fan of his, I really don't agree with this law because I believe it contradicts the freedom of speech, and it also seems a little odd to protect someone who is dead.
