Michael Jackson.  Guilty or Not Guilty - Page 2

post #16 of 33
You forget the most important thing, Micheal Jackson will be aquitted because Micheal Jackson is dead. This white pasty thing with the surgical mask is an alien impersonator, and he's covered by diplomatic immunity so cannot be retried under his real name. the end.

The choice of the jury doesn't seem very fair as most have children and all are white.

i recently heard that they found child pornography belonging to him. IF this is true, that should be enough to convict him.
I don't believe he has been charged with child pornography-related offenses in this case, so his possession of such material would not at all be a reason to convict him. If the police really found material in his home that fits the legal definition of child pornography, I believe they would have already charged him for it. There is no reason to hold that charge out of the current case, because it saves the prosecution from a second trial, and more importantly, gives the jury a reason to hate the defendant and to use that hatred to convict him of the other charges (which is an impermissible use of such evidence but not likely to provide grounds for an appeal, since no juror would admit to doing it).

I think our legal system is great in this country. I think our Constitution is the best governing document in history. Those founders were very smart guys and I have a lot of respect for them. And, yes, I'm an attorney. As for MJ, I haven't followed it at all. I don't really have any interest. If he did those things, lock him up. Fast. As for OJ, I did follow it and thought the two verdicts were exactly as they should have been. In the criminal trial, the proseccution just did NOT carry their burden of proof. In the civil trial, with a lower burden, the result was just. Because he probably did kill them. Probably is just not good enough for crimes, but it is sufficient for liability. As for Kobe, I followed that too. Again, proper results. He really didn't rape her, but she wanted some $ so they both found some figure tthat they could agree the case was worth and settled. He put it behind him and she can get out of the spotlight and start to grow up. I hope she's learned some things. I'm sure Kobe has.

That's all I have to say about the verdict.

He "beat it".

I don't know why people must tear down what they do not understand. Okay, he sleeps in bed with boys. But, if nothing happens, then why go after the guy? In today's litigious world, I suspect we'd go after Peter Pan as well. People would start wispering about why does Peter Pan dress up in green tights and likes to hang out with little boys.

I can never tell whether your posts are supposed to be serious or sarcastic - in this case, I sincerely hope it's the latter...

*Interesting* choice of celebrity cases you chose to critique here. These seem to be the ones that always come up. OJ and Mike getting off sure have people riled up, yet other celebrity (Blake, Durst, yadda yadda) just go silently away without the critique from mass media and the public. It seems like people (not you) can't get over OJ and harp about it being the greatest injustice to mankind. Of course the similarities between OJ and Kobe (black man/white woman is still a disturbing image to most people). Is that way people have seem to take such cases personally? Perhaps. You even see elements of this with the beautiful, intelligent (media words, not mine) girl in Aruba that everyone seems to be searching for......

I'm glad he's not guilty, because all the people shouting and making opinions and everything against him, yet have no involvement in the case, are really annoying. And they lost.

What I find interesting is that more than one juror stated that they believe MJ really has molested boys in the past--just not in this case.

Hopefully, now that the trial is over, Michael Jackson will stop molesting my television with his face.

That reminds me of the skit on Dave Chapelle show where he's a prospective juror, and the lawyers are asking him questions about different celebrity cases. He keeps on saying MJ couldn't do it cause he made Thriller. But, when they ask him if he'd let his own children sleep over with MJ, he's like 'Hell, No.' We all know that MJ is a child molestor, and needs to be put in prison to be stopped.

total BS. you don't know anything unless you were there. you don't know any of the facts other than those the mass media cherrypick for you. 12 jurors heard and saw ALL the evidence and concluded that the guy was innocent. 3 of his alleged victims, now adults, testified FOR HIM.
