difference is after MJ's death no 'victims' have come forward to say the've been abused and he was tried in a court of law and found NOT guilty
Wrong! The big difference is in the USA the estate of the deceased can sue for defamation, unlike in the UK. Plus the penalties for "wrongly" accusing a dead person are more likely to result in a prison sentence and certainly a heavier fine. So in America it is far better to accuse somebody whilst they are alive.
