DIANE DIMOND in a case of a HOMELESS KID and a pedophile RODNEY ALLEN
Diane Dimond’s adventures over a fictional molestation case of a Canadian boy were already covered in an earlier post here, but recent discussion of the same subject made me look into that 1995 story once again – this time in the light of Diane Dimond’s ‘cooperation’ with a pedophile named Rodney Allen.
BACKGROUND FOR THE CANADIAN SCAM
Judging by the weather and fur coat Diane Dimond wore upon arrival in Canada the story took place either in the winter/spring of 1995 or late autumn the same year.
That year was notable for Diane Dimond as in January 1995 she and Gutierrez publicly lied about a certain “graphic” but totally non-existent video tape allegedly involving a ‘young boy’ and Michael Jackson.
This non-existent tape got Dimond and Gutierrez into big trouble as Michael Jackson sued them and Stephen Doran of “Hard Copy” for slander for the sum of $100 mln. The suit was eventually won by Michael Jackson, but only against Guttierrez who was the source where the lie originated. All those who repeated and promoted the lie got away with it while Guttierez had to flee from the US in order not to pay the $2,7 mln. awarded to Jackson.
Diane Dimond managed to escape justice after getting help from no other than Tom Sneddon, who made some misleading official declaration concerning the case. This enabled her to hide behind the Shield Law which protects journalists who in theory don’t always know whether their sources tell the truth or not. In theory no, but in reality the matters of truth have long stopped to have anything to do with Diane Dimond and Gutierrez – however this point was somewhat overlooked by the court. The court also made a mistake of thinking that there was ‘lack of malice’ on Diane Dimond’s part and let her go in peace, alas.
A quote from the court papers:
- Appellant Michael Jackson brought suit against respondents Paramount Pictures Corporation [producer of “Hard Copy”], Diane Dimond, and Stephen Doran [its reporters] alleging that he had been slandered by reports broadcast on the television program “Hard Copy” and in a radio interview with Dimond. During these broadcasts, the search for and purported existence of a videotape showing appellant inappropriately touching an underage boy in a sexual manner were discussed. The trial court granted summary judgment to respondents based on the truth of the statements made in the broadcast and the lack of evidence of malice. http://caselaw.findlaw.com/ca-court-of-appeal/1288872.html
By now I have already found the earlier comments by Shelly, who provided us with exhaustive information about the Canadian scam (thanks a lot to her for the materials!) where she says that the Canadian story aired on TV Hard Copy on April 27th of 1995 and Michael Jackson sued Dimond and Co. two months prior to that, so if the dates are correct the Canadian scam was running parallel to Michael Jackson’s lawsuit against Gutierrez and Diane Dimond cited above.
This lawsuit makes an intriguing background for the Canadian story.
The key players in it were the same as the defendants in Michael Jackson’s lawsuit against the Hard Copy reporters. Both Diane Dimond and Stephen Doran as well as the Hard Copy producers surely wanted a new huge scandal to break around Michael Jackson and hoped that the boy’s allegations would be true. The new scandal could effectively wipe away MJ’s case against them by channeling all his attention and financial resources into another direction.
However the plans to have a huge international scandal did not work out. Though the Santa Barbara police officials stood by waiting for the Canadian case to be brought to them by Diane Dimond, thanks to the Canadian police the scam was nipped in the bud. The boy was interviewed by them so professionally that by the end of the interview he had to admit that the whole thing was a mere invention. The case turned out to be an elaborate scam, so Diane Dimond had to return to Tom Sneddon empty-handed.
But she and her team did not lose heart. Even as a scam the case was still extremely helpful to them and especially to Diane Dimond. The image of an objective journalist was something she very much needed at that particular moment in time, when the $100mln. lawsuit was looking into her motives of malice in the suit filed by Jackson. All she needed was a vivid illustration presented to the jury of how terribly “unbiased” and “lacking malice” she and Hard Copy in general were towards Jackson.
So even if no Canadian scam had taken place on its own the Hard Copy producers should have invented it in order to boost their good image in the eyes of the public and potential jury, and prove to them that there was absolutely no malice in their actions towards Michael Jackson – now or ever.
This way both outcomes of the Canadian story were benefiting Diane Dimond and her crew, and it is difficult to say which one was even more preferable – in the face of a potential danger to pay $100mln as damages to Michael Jackson it was a matter of life and death for Diane Dimond to either get ‘incriminating’ material against him or lull the jury into thinking that she was an objective reporter who could not bear responsibility for the actions of the malicious source who simply let her down.
Following the second scenario did not mean that Diane Dimond was going to give up her harassment of Michael Jackson – no, certainly not. The only thing it meant was that now the job was to be done by subtler methods. The idea was to use the Canadian fiasco to show her in an extremely favorable light and simultaneously throw more innuendoes against Jackson, only in a much less apparent way.
A NOTE ABOUT DIANE DIMOND’S VOCABULARY
When you watch the Canadian episode again please note how often Diane Dimond uses the word ‘molestation’ in connection with the innocent name of Michael Jackson. Mentioning it so often is absolutely not a chance occurrence on the part of Diane Dimond. Even if the word is used in negation (“he didn’t molest anyone”) it still forms a strong association link between the name of the person and the phenomenon imposed on the person this way. The idea is to form a stable connection between the two and make the viewers recall the right word each time they hear the name of the person.
This is actually a full-time propaganda technique which is well-known to me as a former teacher of English – we also used it in our work when helping students to memorize new foreign words. Whether in negation or not it does not matter – the word is memorized equally well if you repeat it often enough in whatever form it is.
What’s crucial here is the context for introducing the word (notion, idea, etc.). If the context is dull or non-existent, as in a plain enumeration of the new words, they will simply not stick – but if the context is colorful or even thrilling the words intended for memorizing will sink in beautifully. In fact the more fascinating the story is the better it is, as the thrill only adds extra force to the memory glue.
Afterwards the memory will retrieve the word only when you remember the context – so the more memorable the context is the better the words around it are memorized too. The context is like muscles building around the bone. Psychology, you know. We tested some of the ways how the memory works in a “yellow wall” experiment if you remember.
All these small and big tricks of the trade are used by Diane Dimond in great abundance. The first and most vivid of them is the totally unnatural number of times she uses the word ‘molestation’ in connection with the name of the man she intends to smear. And though the overall report seems ‘positive’ towards Michael Jackson in reality it is absolutely not, especially since almost each time she uses the word, it is accompanied by the picture of Michael Jackson for stronger effect. To help you detect the trick I’ve marked the places in the transcript where MJ’s face appears in the narration. Check up which word accompanies each of those pictures and you will see what I am talking about.
Here is the transcript of the video about the Michael Jackson scam.
Announcer: When our Diane Dimond began to investigate she uncovered a trail of lies. Diane?
D.Dimond: Terri, ever since the MJ child molestation scandal broke we’ve gotten a constant stream of calls and letters from people making dubious claims about the singer. Frankly, we ignored most of them. But when I heard the facts of this story, I just had to go to Canada and check it out myself.
START OF THE VIDEO
Boy: I’d like to make a confession of what happened between me and Michael Jackson.
DD’s voiceover: “He is only 15 years old, so we cannot show you his face or let you know his real name. But the 11-minute home video he sent to our Hard Copy several weeks ago could have become Michael Jackson’s worst nightmare.
Looking straight into the camera, using no notes this boy proceeded to tell us in graphic detail how he and another teen were allegedly molested by the super star. “
Boy: He started touching me on my stomach, we grabbed my stomach then and then he gets lower, that’s when I asked him, “What are you doing?” he said “Okay, do not worry, boys are meant to be touched.”
DD’s voiceover: “But the boy wasn’t acting on his own. He had help – a man who identified himself as John Templeton of Mississauga, Canada. That is a suburb of Toronto. He sent us the boy’s video taped statement and even called several times to make sure we looked at it. Then, I got a call from the boy himself…
Over the next few days I spoke with the boy for hours, and he never wavered, his story staying consistent. The boy said he met Michael Jackson at a Canadian video arcade . He said he was supposed to spend the weekend with a friend, but when Jackson invited him to visit Neverland instead, off they flew in a private jet. This 15 year-old described in detail the people in Jackson’s entourage [Michael Jackson getting off the plane], the layout of the ranch, and even Jacksons’ family home at Encino. Later he would draw us incredibly detailed maps of both Jackson’s homes. It was clear: Either the guy was telling the truth or he had been well coached. To get to the bottom of it, I agreed to meet the boy and John Templeton in Toronto.
The plan was to meet the pair in the lobby of the airport hotel, but when I arrived the only one to greet me was the young boy. He came with me into town and told me he lived on the streets of Toronto, in a section called Boystown where the street kids gather. He explained that his mother had kicked him out of the house and that John Templeton was just a man he met on the streets.”
Boy: He kind of helps street kids, he just talks to them and things like … is something like guidance or counseling on the street… that’s what it seemed like.
DD’s voiceover: “The boy appeared to be on his own. There was no sign of John Templeton, and frankly that seemed suspicious. But over the next few days our Hard Copy team conducted hours of interviews with the boy. Standing by were police officials in both California and Toronto. They were waiting to conduct their own investigation of the boy’s charges. “
Man on the phone: Hi, my name is Frank Grimes, I work for the TV show Hard Copy …
DD’s voiceover: “Producer Frank Grimes and I worked to check out countless pieces of information the boy gave us. While sources were able to confirm much of what he said, there were some troubling inconsistencies. Still the boy stubbornly stuck by his story and he had an incredible knowledge of Michael Jackson’s lifestyle. “
D.Dimond: A saddle shop, I see it on the map here.
Boy: Yeah ..
D.Dimond: People gonna think that you are for his money.
Boy: I do not care for his money.
D.Dimond: They’ll think you made it up …
Boy: Yes, I know, but I don’t care for his money, he can keep it …
D.Dimond:: Really, you tell me the absolute truth?
END OF VIDEO
Frank Grimes: He talked for hours, and he knew so much, so much in fact that we thought, well, let’s give him a test and see if we can trip him up.
DD’s voiceover: “We showed the boy several photographs. Some of them were of Neverland employees, and he was able to identify each and every one of them.”
Boy: Yes, that’s him.. that’s him…
DD’s voiceover: “If this was a scam, this boy had really done his homework. He even went so far as to draw us a picture of what he said Michael Jackson looked like during the alleged molestation [a horrible drawing of Michael Jackson’s face]. Always he came back to his claims of mo-le-sta-tion.
Boy: His eyes were big and dark …like… the eye sockets were… you know…
[the drawing of Michael Jackson’s face again]
D.Dimond: But there was one thing I didn’t tell the boy. I did not tell him that for the last year I’ve been getting Michael Jackson related letters from his same small suburb in Canada. The letters were supposedly from other young boys who also claimed that they had been molested by Jackson. Two of the letters even included pictures of the boys. Well, someone was behind all this, but still there was no sign of the man who’d sent us the original video statement by the boy – no sign of John Templeton.
DD’s voiceover: “There is Detective Campbell downtown. He doesn’t know your name and doesn’t know anything yet. But he is waiting to see us. Want to go?”
DD’s voiceover: “From the beginning, the boy never asked us for money, and he repeatedly said he did not want any money from Michael Jackson either. So what was his motivation? Well, he said it was simple. He said he wanted justice, and now he was about to give a sworn statement to the police. “
D.Dimond: I want you to remember one thing…. Please tell the truth.
DD’s voiceover: “We delivered the boy to the Toronto metro police headquarters, where the detectives of the Sexual Assault Unit had been waiting for us.”
Detective: I understand you want to speak to me? And that’s okay, we’re going to go upstairs and talk. Okay?
DD’s voiceover: “For 6 solid hours police questioned the boy, took his sworn statement. He told them just what we told us – that super star Michael Jackson had molested him.”
Det. Darryl Campbell: I found it fairly believable too.
DD’s voiceover: “While the boy talked to police we continued our investigation. We had to find this John Templeton. So we drove to the Toronto suburbs to check out the return address from the video tape that he’d sent us. That’s when we ran into somebody we knew.”
VIDEO ON THE STREET
D.Dimond: What the hell is going on?!
Male: Okay Diane, let me explain something to you …
DD’s voiceover: “Say hello to John Templeton … only his real name is Rodney Allen. We’ve known about Rodney for a long time. Right after the Michael Jackson scandal first broke he was on the phone with us claiming that another Jackson family member had molested him years ago. Rodney has never offered any solid proof of this claim. He appeared to be a man bent on revenge, and Rodney admitted – he was the one who’d been writing me all those letters. “
VIDEO ON THE STREET
D.Dimond: I care about this one kid who gave me all sorts of information about Neverland, about Havenhurst, about Disneyland, about Michael Jackson’s body. Where did he get all that information?
Rodney Allen: He got it from me.
D.Dimond: You planted all this stuff in the kid’s head?
Man: I didn’t plant it in his head. He was asking questions, I answered them the best I can. I told him what I could tell him about the place. I want Michael to face it.
D.Dimond: So the kid is a… a number one liar?
DD’s voiceover: “The whole story was a scam. A Toronto street kid meets a man obsessed with the Michael Jackson case, and the result could have been an international scandal. Meanwhile, back at the police station, the boy finally broke down. He admitted that he and Rodney Allen had made up the whole story. “
D.Dimond:: The young man was lying?
Det. Campbell: Emm … that’s my belief, and as a result of that he was charged, yes.
D.Dimond: Can you tell us what he was charged with?
Det. Campbell: Public mischief.
D.Dimond: Well, the boy is still in custody tonight and police continue their investigation of Mr. Rodney Allen. Terri?
* * *
Let us not allow Diane Dimond to fool us by her fake “objectivity”. She has used each and every minute of this report to effectively slander Michael Jackson, only in a much more subtle than usual way. Even if we put the vocabulary point aside the dark innuendo suggesting that Rodney Allen was molested by someone in the Jackson family is bad enough to send us into wild guesses about who that person might be, especially since Michael Jackson himself once wrote a warning note to his nephews’ mother that someone in the family was an abuser.
And what about the mysterious story that the boy allegedly “recognized Michael’s employees” and “drew incredibly detailed maps of Neverland and Havenhurst”? This will leave you guessing how that was possible if he had never been there. Or had he? These drops of poison leave you with an uneasy feeling that though the scam was uncovered some skeletons in the cupboard were still left there untouched.
No, there are no more skeletons there, at least in MJ’s cupboard. Rodney Allen said it pointblank – the boy repeated what Rodney Allen told him to say and was professional in the art of lying. Everything he said to the police was what had been implanted into his head. The rest of the story is what Diane Dimond and her producer Frank Grimes are just telling us and what they want us to think.
Upon hearing the story from Diane Dimond we – as usual – face the choice of whether to believe her or not. If we believe her we will have to derive conclusions from the premise that the facts reported are true, including the “recognition of the Neverland employees” part. This will take us along one road and the journey that ensues may be quite fascinating.
Or we can disbelieve the details Dimond embellished her story with on the grounds of her proven reputation of a professional liar. This attitude will be fully understandable too as total disbelief for Dimond’s stories is what she actually deserves and over here she is only reaping what she has sown herself.
And though throwing away her stories as garbage would be the most natural thing to do under the circumstances I am still curious to see where her own story will take us if we accept her words at their face value and therefore regard the details described as true.
DRAWING A BIGGER PICTURE
Putting the scam story aside, the most interesting part of what remains is how the boy who had never been to Neverland or Havenhurst could make the detailed maps of both places. Of course we can assume that Diane Dimond only said that the boy drew them while in reality she drew them herself, but if we go by her story we will need to find out if there was a possibility for the boy to ever visit both Jackson’s homes and go to the US twice at different points in time.
If the boy lived with his family before, and his family took him to the other coast of the US, and he went both to Havenhurst and Neverland on two separate occasions, or if Rodney Allen took him there in both cases, one problem will still remain – when Michael lived in Havenhurst (the end of the 80s) the boy was too young and could not remember the details well enough to be able to draw a big and detailed map of the place.
So this leaves us only with Rodney Allen’s explanation which implies that Allen himself has been to Havenhurst and Neverland and simply coached the boy, probably using some photos made from the air as no other pictures of it were available at the time (cameras were not allowed in Neverland).
We cannot rule out the possibility that Rodney Allen has indeed been to both Havenhurst and Neverland. How he could get there I have no idea – he could be there as a visitor or accompany some children to Neverland (in Toronto this animal was a bus driver who carried children to school and recreational activities).
What is clear though is that he wasn’t there as a friend of Michael Jackson as his obsessive desire to ruin him speaks exactly to the opposite. Rodney Allen spent an incredible amount of time and effort to set up Michael Jackson. The preparation work he did is astonishing – every single little detail was attended to, up to recording the fact that Michael Jackson had a collection of saddles for his horses kept somewhere on the ranch.
Another possible explanation for those maps is that Allen wasn’t there himself and was just retelling what someone else had seen in Neverland and Havenhurst, provided him with the drawings and described the details seen in both places.
This contact person could also supply him with photos of some employees from Neverland and considering that the period of 1995 was when two more lawsuits were raging (the Neverland bodyguards and maid Adrian McManus were suing Michael Jackson and he was suing them back (they eventually lost), we have at least five former employees who were ready for a revenge, were interested in a new huge scandal around Michael Jackson and could provide their photos to the scammer of their own free will. Incidentally some of those people, as they said at the 2005 trial, were in contact with Gutierrez and Diane Dimond, who due to the $100mln. lawsuit against them also had a big motive for a new scandal around Michael Jackson.
So if we draw a bigger picture around that Canadian scam in one corner of it we will see a certain Rodney Allen who for some reason was terribly set on framing up Michael Jackson. For at least a year this person was in close contact with Diane Dimond as she herself says that she and Frank Grimes of “Hard Copy” knew Allen very well. Indeed they were all smiles when they met as old friends in the suburb of Toronto.
In their turn at that very moment Diane Dimond and Stephen Doran of “Hard Copy” were involved in a big lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson against them for slander about a fictional video tape. Another co-defendant in the suit was Diane’s ‘best source’ Victor Gutierrez who was the reason why that lawsuit emerged at all.
In his turn Victor Gutierrez was close to some former employees making up the Neverland 5 team who were also in the midst of litigation with Michael Jackson at exactly the same moment in time. These people didn’t know Rodney Allen but they knew Victor Gutierrez and Diane Dimond. Gutierrez most probably had common interests with Rodney Allen as he attended a NAMBLA conference in 1986 and Rodney Allen was a proven pedophile who was incarcerated for life for crimes against children several years after the Canadian scam, so this could form the necessary link between the two. These common interests didn’t even require a personal meeting – everything could be done via computer communication (on his inmate page Rodney Allen says that he loves computers).
To coach the boy Rodney Allen evidently showed him the pictures of some Neverland employees (probably sent to him by someone). Diane Dimond also showed him the pictures of the Jackson ‘entourage’ which were available to her and as a result of these two processes the boy recognized some of those people.
This was the general disposition of the case. The number of players and their motives allow for a myriad opportunities, and though I absolutely cannot claim that all these people were involved in the Canadian scam, their interconnection with each other is really fascinating. Seeing them so nicely grouped together in one picture against the background of all those pending lawsuits and at the time when the Canadian scam was being thoroughly prepared gives me a really titillating feeling….
Someone said that the photos of Neverland employees could be taken from newspapers. Yes, probably they could. Only now we read the same papers and don’t really see that many pictures of Michael Jackson “entourage” – I for one have seen only the faces of those who made allegations against Michael Jackson. The photos of Philippe Lemarque and his wife who slandered Macaulay Culkin were posted by the Smoking Gun, the faces of Filipino couple flashed in some videos a couple of times, Adrian McManus the maid appeared in connection with the 2005 trial, a little bit of Blanca Francia was sprinkled here and there in some old papers and a bit of the bodyguards was seen due to the 2005 trial again, and yes, Bob Jones was there of course – but that’s it.
No, the offer of the employees’ photos is actually very scarce while the demand for them is big.
THE ROLE OF RODNEY ALLEN
Okay, now another question arises – what about that allegation that Rodney Allen was molested by someone in the Jackson family?
Could it be MJ? No, absolutely not. The ‘Inmate-connection’ page that Rodney Allen filled out while serving his time in the Ontario prison says that he was born on September 17, 1956 – so he is two years older than Michael Jackson and couldn’t possibly be a child when Michael was a grown-up. However Rodney Allen never claimed that he had been molested by MJ – all he alleged was that it was someone else in the Jackson family, and hence his revenge (taken for some reason on a totally innocent person who himself didn’t enjoy the best of childhoods in that family).
Whether Rodney Allen’s “molestation” story is true or not we don’t know, though we cannot absolutely rule it out as Michael himself once wrote a note to his female relative warning her of an abuser in the family.
What cannot be disputed about Rodney Allen though is the fact that he was terrilby obsessed with Michael Jackson. If we are to believe Diane Dimond’s story his desire to compromise Jackson was so big that he besieged her for a year with letters written in the names of various boys and sometimes accompanied by pictures of those fictional ‘victims’.
Dimond says that the correspondence started a year before the scam was uncovered, and this takes us back into the winter of 1994 which was the period when the settlement agreement with the Chandlers had already been signed but the criminal investigation carried out by Sneddon and Garcetti was only gaining momentum.
Rodney Allen wanted to be part of it and over here we needn’t doubt Diane Dimond’s word for it as thanks to Shelly we have independent proof that Rodney Allen did really began his provocations against Michael Jackson as early as 1993/94.
The proof arrived in the form of a document made prior to the 2005 trial. The document is a motion from Susan Yu where she asks the prosecution to provide the defense with all the documents enumerated in the evidence list with regard to the 1993 investigation.
To our great surprise the list includes a certain fax listed as item 8336 involving Rodney Allen at the time of the Chandler allegations! We do not know of course the contents of the fax but from the attention paid to it by both sides the fax seems to be significant enough to be included in the list of evidence by the prosecution and requested by the defense in the year 2005!
In their description of item 8336 the prosecution says that Rodney Allen would not be a part of the 2005 case, which makes us immediately think that he could probably be part of the previous 1993 case. Does this mean that Rodney Allen was involved in Michael Jackson’s affairs to a much bigger degree than we initially expected? And was his active involvement in the 1993 case the reason why Diane Dimond knew Rodney Allen so long? And could it be the reason why Allen was familiar with the Neverland and Haverhurst layout and was able to draw their maps?
What role was he playing in the 1993 case? Could it be different from the role he played in 1995 when he tried to set up Michael Jackson with the help of a Canadian boy? I doubt it very much indeed that there was a difference in his plans. Only two years passed since then and what Rodney Allen intended to do to Michael in 1995 could have easily been attempted against him in the year 1993 and vice versa….
But then it means that it wasn’t only Gutierrez who was working against Michael at the time! And pedophile Rodney Allen joined him too! Isn’t the consistent work done by these people against Jackson the best proof that he was not one of them? These people stand by each other like blood brothers, and the fact that they were doing so much damage to Michael is the best sign that they didn’t regard him as their own kind.
It would also be interesting to know why the crucial information that some pedophiles were actively involved in the case against Jackson is not made known to the general public. Or is the prosecution and the media (Diane Dimond) shy to admit that they used the services of real pedophiles in an attempt to nail down an innocent man?
Please don’t even try to shove me a hypothesis that Rodney Allen was part of the 1993 case and did this huge preparation work for the Canadian scam in 1995 due to some hypothetical homosexual love for Michael Jackson. In fact the ferocity with which he was hunting for him is more suggestive of a revenge or love “unshared” by the other side.
Whatever the reason for it was Rodney Allen was clearly doing his utmost to ruin Michael Jackson and was doing it on a long-term basis too. Using the terminology of one of our readers the fact of this harassment is a hard fact which cannot be disputed and should never be underestimated.
- And the fact is that a person named Rodney Allen made some allegations against Michael in 1993 and was probably even part of the case as the prosecution document suggests it.
- For at least one year after that he went into much expense and trouble in order to falsely incriminate MJ in child abuse activities.
- In order to do so in 1995 he set up an elaborate scheme involving a 15-year old boy as a fictional ‘victim’ of MJ, but the scam was uncovered by the police.
Rodney Allen’s tenacity in following MJ and his consistent desire to harm him are an important precondition for a new assumption we can make about him. The assumption is that Rodney Allen could be very well involved in other undercover activities against Jackson, and what we see now is only the tip of the iceberg.
If he was so keen on setting up Michael Jackson in the year 1995 and also worked against him in 1993, who can guarantee that he didn’t try to inflict any harm on Michael earlier? Who knows what else this person was capable of?
I for one am of the opinion that the book sent to Michael by a fan called “Rhonda” (in quotations) could actually be a present from Rodney Allen.
Why did he do it? Because a book with boys in bathing suits (partially undressed) may turn into a supporting evidence in case there is a police raid of the ranch in connection with child molestation allegations. So if someone was set on framing up poor Michael Jackson at the time, this book could become the ‘evidence’, though under normal circumstances it would not have had any special significance of its own.
Why I think Rodney Allen could be setting up Michael Jackson this way? Because he wanted to set him up in 1995, so what prevented him from doing the same in the year 1993, 1992 or earlier?
Another supposition is that pedophile Rodney Allen as a sure member of NAMBLA could very well work in cooperation with another suspect member of it, Victor Gutierrez, who in the year 1995 was under very much fire from Michael Jackson and who could easily approach his comrade to help him with a scam that could potentially turn into a huge international scandal all of them so much counted on.
The scam didn’t work but the effort and money which went into it was enormous. Have you noticed that the homeless street kid was able to call Diane Dimond to the US and speak to her for hours describing his story to her? To be able to speak that long over international lines this street kid should have had a big amount of spare cash, shouldn’t he? Rodney Allen who stood behind the scheme was the only one who could supply this money to him …
And though Allen shifts the blame onto the boy (“he is a professional liar”, “he asked questions” and Allen “only answered them”) the money sponsored for the project and the duration of Allen’s overall preoccupation with Michael Jackson prove that the idea of the scam rests with the adult rather than with the boy.
But why was Rodney so preoccupied with Jackson? Could it be the money? I doubt it as Allen was part of the criminal investigation against Michael Jackson in the year 1993/94 and over there he could hardly count on any money reward.
Then what could be the reason? Is it the one voiced by Gutierrez in an interview to that German paper? I mean that fact that the NAMBLA members talked at their 1987 conference about the need to turn Michael Jackson into their poster boy and use his image to break public resistance to their ‘cause’. To this end all they needed was Michael Jackson’s agreement, however since he flatly refused to participate real pedophiles were determined to prove their case by themselves and break the man this way….
THE STORY OF RODNEY ALLEN
What was a shocking surprise for us several years ago is now a well-known fact, at least for Michael Jackson’s supporters. Rodney Allen is a pedophile who was incarcerated for crimes against children. Now he is serving a life-long sentence in a Canadian prison.
Some sources say that he was arrested in 1998 which was only three years after the scam he arranged for Michael Jackson (this is probably when he drew attention of police to himself). Other sources say that Rodney Allen was detained sometime around the year 2000 and this is a more correct date as he committed some offenses in 1999 and his Inmate page says that by the year 2010 he has done 10 years in custody.
The story below says that in 2001 Rodney Allen pleaded guilty to six offenses against boys, in 2002 he was incarcerated as a dangerous offender and in the year 2007 the Court of Appeal refused to change his interminable sentence:
June 18, 2007
Sex predator still a danger, court rules
Ontario’s Court of Appeal has ruled a 50-year-old Mississauga man who admitted to committing a number of sex-related offences against teenage boys in Meadowvale deserves “the most serious punishment in the Criminal Code.”
A panel of three judges ruled last week that Rodney Allen should remain incarcerated as a dangerous offender.
Allen, a former private school bus driver, was declared a dangerous offender by Justice Marvin G. Morten in April of 2002, about one year after he pleaded guilty to six offences. His list of crimes includes two sexual assaults on a 14-year-old boy and indecent assault and gross indecency on two other boys.
Under Canada’s Criminal Code, dangerous offenders may be subjected to an indeterminate prison sentence. The purpose of the legislation is to detain offenders who are deemed too dangerous to be released into society upon completion of their sentences.
Crown prosecutor Christine Tier told the appeal judges that a person may be declared a dangerous offender if that person is unable to control his or her sexual impulses and, as a result, will likely cause injury or harm to other persons.
“A dangerous offender declaration is perhaps the most serious punishment in the Criminal Code,” the judges said in their ruling.
Allen suffers from homosexual hebephilia, the hearing was told. He is attracted to boys entering puberty.
“His disorder manifests itself by his seeking out, often by deceit, boys aged 11-14, so that he can be near them,” the judges heard.
Allen appealed the dangerous offender designation, claiming the trial judge overstated the seriousness of his conduct, and therefore his danger to the public. He also claimed the judge misunderstood the evidence on whether he could be treated and whether his risk of reoffending could be managed in the community.
But the Ontario Court of Appeal rejected those arguments, saying there is evidence from psychiatrists that Allen “had a high risk of reoffending,” and has not been willing to get medical treatment.
The court of Appeals which dismissed Allen’s case in 2007 details the facts about Rodney Allen:
- Mr. Allen, who is now fifty years old, suffers from homosexual hebephilia. He is attracted to boys entering puberty. His disorder manifests itself by his seeking out, often by deceit, boys aged eleven to fourteen, so that he can be near them.
- In March 2001, Mr. Allen pleaded guilty to six offences: two sexual assaults, each on a fourteen-year-old boy; threatening to burn the property of the father of one of the boys; carrying a pellet gun for a dangerous purpose; indecent assault and gross indecency on two other boys. The first four offences took place in the summer of 1999; the latter two offences took place in 1983. http://www.canlii.org/en/on/onca/doc/2007/2007onca421/2007onca421.pdf
So by the year 1994/95 when Rodney Allen was in close and regular contact with Diane Dimond he had already had a record of offenses against boys! Diane Dimond probably didn’t know about it, but it doesn’t really matter – the fact that she worked in cooperation with a pedophile gives me a strange feeling of satisfaction anyway. It serves her right to carry the stigma of having pedophiles as her assistants and this stigma looks to me like a heavenly retribution for the many years of her harassment of a totally innocent man…
By now there are already two of them around her associated with pedophilia – the first one is a suspect pedophile Victor Gutierrez who once attended a NAMBLA conference and later became Dimond’s ‘best source’ feeding her with his pedophilia fantasies, and the second Dimond’s best connection was Rodney Allen who is now serving a life sentence for pedophilia. What a nice company!
All her life Diane Dimond claimed that she was fighting a child molester but now it turns out that the person she thought guilty was innocent and it was actually she who cooperated with two pedophiles all these years! This is what happens when the Heavens laugh…
The court papers say that in addition to being a pedophile Rodney Allen was also bordering on the mentally retarded:
Mr. Allen was forty-five years old at the time he was sentenced. He has a minor and unrelated adult criminal record. Growing up, he had difficulties at home and at school. Up until age five, he suffered from epileptic seizures. Psychological reports produced when he was a young boy suggest that these seizures caused brain damage. According to I.Q. testing conducted at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health following his guilty plea, Mr. Allen’s intellectual capacity is borderline, rated at seventy-five to eighty.
Wiki explains it:
- Borderline intellectual functioning is defined as a categorization of intelligence wherein a person has below average cognitive ability (generally an IQ of 70-85), but the deficit is not as severe as mental retardation (70 or below). Persons who fall into this categorization have a relatively normal expression of affect for their age, although their ability to think abstractly is rather limited. Reasoning displays a preference for concrete thinking. They are usually able to function day to day without assistance, including holding down a simple job and the basic responsibilities of maintaining a dwelling http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borderline_intellectual_functioning
The court papers also say that Rodney Allen worked as a long distance bus driver and had a bus company of his own. He drove the bus to take children to various school and recreational activities and who knows what he was doing on the way?
At the time of his guilty plea, Mr. Allen owned his own bus company. He drove navy cadets and private school children to and from a variety of school and recreational activities.
Rodney Allen presented himself as an agent for young boys who worked for an entertainment company. In some cases he called himself an FBI agent which is a fact that immediately reminded me of Victor Gutierrez. Gutierrez also made rounds of the families associating with Michael Jackson and presented himself as a secret police agent. We can easily make this supposition as Gutierrez spoke about it to several Chilean and German journalists quite openly. It is quite possible that this is the way pedophiles like to win trust of their victims and their parents. Rodney Allen used the method too:
On the dangerous offender application, the Crown led other evidence to show that Mr. Allen sought out pubescent boys. In one case, he induced a fourteen-year-old boy – who was interested in an acting or modeling career – to come to Toronto from Rochester on the pretext that he was an agent for young boys and worked for a company called “American Entertainment”.
The 1999 offences occurred in the summer of that year when Mr. Allen met and became friendly with a group of five fourteen-year-old boys. These boys often came to Mr. Allen’s apartment because he let them drink alcohol and smoke. Mr. Allen told the boys that he was a member of the FBI, that the world was going to end in 2000, but that they could be saved by lying down with him while naked.
Despite his case bordering on mental retardation Rodney Allen is described by the court papers as manipulative and deceitful which contrary to popular belief can indeed accompany some cases of mental impairment:
Mr. Allen was willing to work on the “margins of conventional society” by, for example, seeking out street children; Mr. Allen worked as a long distance bus driver; and, Mr. Allen is manipulative and deceitful, making any form of self-reporting meaningless.
Rodney Allen was prone to seeking out street children! So this is what his ‘target audience’ was! And this is why he was beating about that boy and the other teens in the Boystown in Toronto where the homeless kids lived! There could be no doubt whatsoever that his relations with them were sexual…
So all this time while Diane Dimond was making up her fictional stories about an innocent person’s ‘victims’ she was talking to the real victim of molestation and to his real molester! And all this time she had a truly precious journalistic material in her hands, only she never used it because her goals in the profession were twisted and false, motives mean and all her ‘concern’ for the abused children feigned!
MY CASE AGAINST DIANE DIMOND
I want to ask Diane Dimond a question. Instead of carrying out her fictional ‘investigation’ of false allegations against Michael Jackson she could have done a proper investigation of the real molestation case she was handling and could have brought a real pedophile into the open.
Why didn’t she, a self-proclaimed fighter against pedophilia, didn’t use this rare chance and move her little finger to try and research the real pedophilia problem that was glaring in her face in the streets of Toronto?
Was it possible for her to find that the kid she was interviewing about Jackson was actually a victim of real molestation only by someone different? Easily so! The section in Toronto she describes as the place where the street kids live and ‘gather’ is one of the biggest centers of homosexual activity in the world and it didn’t require too much brainwork to put two and two together and see that the street kid living in that area could earn his living only by selling gay sex to the adults.
She alone wouldn’t have been able to solve the problem of street kids of course, but as a reporter ‘concerned’ about the safety of children she was obliged to raise the problem the moment she encountered it.
Only one condition was required for it – the desire to really help those poor kids whose fate she proclaims she is so much concerned about. Every normal person in her place would have been horrified with what she encountered in that situation. But did she ask the boy how he was making his living? Did she wonder where he lived and why he wasn’t taken care of by social workers? Did she raise the problem of street kids in her report on Hard Copy? No, she didn’t.
Real problems of kids sexually abused by adults evidently never bothered Diane Dimond despite all her loud proclamations to the contrary – all of it is sheer pretence on her part. She cannot care less about the life and future of these poor souls. All she was ever interested in was bringing down a totally innocent person who was unable to hurt even a fly….
Instead of discussing fictional stories told by a pedophile she could have returned to the US with a thundering report about a real social problem – street kids who fall easy prey to freaks like Rodney Allen. She could have called public attention to the problem. She could have used this chance to speak about street kids who are being exposed to the danger of molestation on a daily basis. She could have done a lot of good to these children by raising public awareness about it – however she totally failed to do and all of it because she is completely blind and deaf to the problems of real abuse of children….
What a terrible contrast it is to the goals set by the man whom she chose for a life-long harassment! If Michael Jackson had been in her place he would have found a way to do something about it. In fact it is surprising that though he could hardly see the problem with his own eyes due his isolation in the paradise of Neverland and his fame and glamor shielding him from the dark sides of life, he nevertheless somehow managed to know about the ills of the society and was so concerned about the problem of abandoned and abused children that he wrote several songs about it.
“Lost children” and “Do you know where your children are?” are only some examples of his desperation and poignant appeal he constantly sent to us – Don’t be indifferent, wake up to the problem, it is very much there and something needs to be done about it before it is too late!
This is what Michael Jackson was screaming about:
Do you know where your children are
Because its now twelve o’clock
If their somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are
She wrote that she is trying to stop daddy using her
Saying that he’ll buy her things while sexually abusing her
Just think that shes all alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive, She ain’t got nothing to eat
Now she’s on the move shes’s off to Hollywood
She said she wanna be a star she heard the money’s good
She gets off from the train station a man is waiting there
I’ll show you where the money is girl just let down your hair
He’s taking her on the streets of Sunset Boulevard
She’s selling her body hard girl that was taken for
The police come round the corner that somebody there had told
He’s arresting this little girl thats only twelve years old
Save me, from this living hell….
(from “Do you know where your children are?” by Michael Jackson)
SAVE ME FROM THIS LIVING HELL!
These words were said not by Diane Dimond as a self-proclaimed defender of children’s safety and well-being. These words were said by Michael Jackson – the man who was relentlessly harassed by her for decades and who in contrast to this useless creature really cared about the children’s safety and well-being….
When looking for information about Rodney Allen, the Boystown in Toronto and the problem of sexual abuse of street kids I accidentally came across a report made in 2001/02 by Pennsylvania University sociology professors. Delivered in a dispassionate manner typical of scientists it shook me to the very core and showed the deepness of the inferno all of us are living in now – in respect of the problem of child molestation.
But this subject will have to be left for the next post.
