  Last night I watched “Square One: New Evidence in Michael Jackson Allegations” which was the exact opposite of what I was expecting (and dreading) to see.   It confirmed my suspicions 100%.   To be clear: I never believed the sexual predator/pedophilia allegations against Michael Jackson.   So when I saw a blurb called…
