Michael Jackson has totally lost it

Words fail me for this picture.

Okay, maybe words DON’T fail me…
What is it that causes mental insanity? What would make ANYONE want to do this, let alone someone so high-profile that would undoubtedly have news stories written about him almost instantaneously after the event?
And why won’t anyone lock this guy up? Or take his kids away? If I took a 6 month old baby out on a balcony, put a towel over its head, and held it over the edge of a balcony with ONE ARM AROUND ITS NECK, I’d be arrested in roughly 2.5 seconds. Yet with Jacko, it’s EXPECTED behavior.
This is one of those “losing faith in society” blog entries. Cue head shaking/sighing.
