You werent in the courtroom.
You didn't hear any of the evidence.
The accuser got up on stand and said that "Jackson was the first celebrity, that ever gave us something and then took it away"
Other celebritys got up and said that this family was trying to blackmail them too ...

so you all just decided that MJ was guilty becasue that is what the "PRESS" told you to think ....

There is a word for that .. it slips my mind currently, but it will come to me. ;-)


Thank God we have a justice system in America ... Thank God!


Would that word be sheep?? btw can you edit your sig and omit the Giants from it? its much too painful to look at ! !+)

Yep ... :-P


Terrible.. :-P This guy is clearly guilty..Don't ask how..It's just a pretty sure gut feeling. :-t


Well I'm glad you aren't my judge. My gut(or was it the media) said he probably did something wrong but when Kevin, I mean Muckully Kulken (someone spell if for me please) came out and admitted that he was one of the kids who slept w/MJ and stated MJ didn't molest him or anyone else (think about that for a sec) that sealed the deal for me, MJ is innocent.

of course they are pissed, journalism, for the most part, has become very lazy. They need people to create their stories for them rather than doing their own work to try to find somthing interesting and noteworthy. Truly pathetic and the reason why I rarely watch any "news" shows outside of the Sunday morning pol shows and the McLaughlin Group.

McLaughlin Group makes me laugh. Those people are hyenas who will look for any kind of excuse to screech at each other. :-D

I don't need the press to tell me that the guy is a nutty freak.

Yeah, I'm with wveres on this one. I dont think you can just base your conclusion on what the media have fed you. If you ask me, Michael Jackson is not mentally well - thats obvious. He was abused as a kid, and robbed of his natural, lively and fun childhood and it appears as though the reason he surrounds himself with children is because he wishes he were them. The problem is that when he does that, it really does not look good...

Hell, nutty freaks are also allowed to go under due process of law. Imagine if this nation was judicially decided by public scrutiny/media rather than the judicial system.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

From everything I've read about it, it just seems the prosecution's case was extremely weak. "Reasonable doubt" isn't hard to find when the mother is all high and mighty (even went so far as to cop and attitude and snap her fingers at the jury while on the stand), sued J.C. Penny for being touched and got something like $150,000 for it, etc. etc, etc.

Is he guilty? I don't have any idea. Would my son spend a night at Neverland? Not a chance in the world. I don't trust him at all, but when it comes to the case, it just had too many holes in it for there not to be some sort of doubt that everyone was being honest. Really hard to say since I was definitely not in the courtroom, but I don't think "reasonable doubt" wasn't raised in the majority of the juror's eyes.

I still wouldn't trust him with my son though. :-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
