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!

Uh, the press didn't say that he slept with children. He said that himself. Case closed, pedophile.

interesting ...
Grown women sleep in the same bed with children that are not their own all the time, so they are pedophiles too?
Don't get me wrong, I am no fan of Michael, but that is not evidence enough to send somebody to jail.

Lots of people have money. Not a lot of people give $20 Million to a kid to keep his mouth shut.

After hearing from the jurors, it looks to me like the blame falls on the prosecutors. It appears they presented a lousy case. And it's actually unfair to blame the jurors for not delivering the verdict many wanted to see (including me), if they weren't given sufficient proof of the charges in the case.

That being said, I believe this guy preyed on young boys, and sexually abused them. But he got away with it by hiding evidence and buying off most of his victims and families. And he got away with it by hiring a top defense lawyer.

I'm not the first one to make this point, but it's worth repeating -- anybody believe there is a SINGLE juror on that panel who would feel comfortable letting THEIR young boy sleep over with Michael Jackson at Neverland?

I can't believe this is even news. He's a celebrity, so he gets off. Why are people somehow surprised at this? :-? As for whether he's actually guilty or not, I agree with wrveres that we are going only on what the media force feeds us, but to think that he would be actually convicted of just laughable.

I think we all assumed he was guilty because he's crazy and maybe he isn't guilty.
