try him in texas.
2005-06-13 05:36:18 PM  
yoop, im iffy on the actuall farking kids charge. but he gave them booze. that cant be denied.
2005-06-13 05:36:19 PM  
The case was weak, I think.

But even so, even if he wasn't sleeping with those boys.

He was dating them.

100,000 dollars on a day trip? I know women I wouldn't spend 50 bucks on.

One way or another, he is abit wierd. And abit sick.

Just saying.

Not guilty by reason of celebrity.

Rich white men don't go to jail

I thought he was a rich white woman (which is what every poor black boy aspires to be when they grow up).
2005-06-13 05:36:26 PM  
Well, he beat it.
2005-06-13 05:36:26 PM  
If he had been found guilty, which race would have rioted to support him? Black or White??

/Prefers next time to, keep it in the closet
2005-06-13 05:36:42 PM  
Did you see his face turn white when they read the verdict?

Another celebrity turns his nose up to the justice system.
2005-06-13 05:36:42 PM  
"The family stood up, touched each other, and then the Judge ordered the media out of the room".... Hmmm.. Are they getting ready for "MJ III, Revenge of the Sis'"?
2005-06-13 05:36:49 PM  
I didn't follow the case at all.
2005-06-13 05:36:50 PM  
You know, I agree he's batchit crazy, but I really doubted he was evil all along.
2005-06-13 05:36:57 PM  
(take two)

Now let's arrest this guy:

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by bread and circuses, distracted, oblivious, pwned.
2005-06-13 05:37:05 PM  
"Not Guilty" is not the same as "Innocent"

The media tends to forget that though
2005-06-13 05:37:06 PM  
They found him not guilty because he is white.
2005-06-13 05:37:06 PM  
i call shenanagins
2005-06-13 05:37:09 PM  
anyone else notice a pattern here?

OJ Simpson: famous: not guilty
Robert Blake :famous: not guilty
Michael Jackson :famous: not guilty
Scott Peterson: previously unknown: guilty

I guess if you've got the cash you can get away with anything. I have lost all faith in our justice system.

What do you have to do to get convicted of a crime in that state?

be poor.

(burns local cyber cafe in white rage)
2005-06-13 05:37:19 PM  
Oooh! Can I be pervert of the week?!
2005-06-13 05:37:23 PM  
So, Michael Jackson and OJ Simpson walk into a bar...

/of molten... never mind.
///Go Ken Lay!!!
2005-06-13 05:37:32 PM  
sick sick sick sick sick

/who says money can't buy everything

MJ and OJ golfing noon tomarrow in Florida
2005-06-13 05:37:36 PM  

If they could have charged him with being a creepy freak, they could have won this case.

Justice Prevails!
2005-06-13 05:37:40 PM  
Tito would have gone to jail
2005-06-13 05:37:45 PM  
He'll eventually just commit suicide. There's really no way around it.
2005-06-13 05:37:53 PM  
Only in American can you get away with anything if you're rich and famous....
2005-06-13 05:37:59 PM  
2005-06-13 05:38:02 PM  
Someone is going to get a new District Attorney!!!!
2005-06-13 05:38:04 PM  
Okay, now that the forums have recovered from being farked, who the hell is that old guy on Drudge with "ARREST THIS MAN" under his picture?

If he's someone from the trial, I wouldn't know because I haven't been watching anything on TV relating to the MJ case. (Me and about five other people in the USA.)
2005-06-13 05:38:26 PM  
Poor guy looked awful pale
2005-06-13 05:38:43 PM  
Best part of watching the verdict was counting the number of Jesus signs. How many were up - a half dozen?

Jackson may have gotten off, but not even he has enough money for the damage control this trial and his past accustations would require. His career may not be over, but he'll never be what he was.

OJ Simpson: famous: not guilty
Robert Blake :famous: not guilty

Michael Jackson's quote after hearing the verdict: "I feel like a kid again"

haha need a new keyboard please.
2005-06-13 05:38:59 PM  
Just because someone is famous, doesn't mean they're automatically guilty.

The jury found that there was reasonable doubt.

It's better that 100 guilty men go free, than have 1 innocent man imprisoned.

/or something.
2005-06-13 05:39:10 PM  
Party back at the ranch! Cookies and Jesus Juice for everyone!
2005-06-13 05:39:10 PM  
I can't believe they let that farking shiatdick off.
2005-06-13 05:39:16 PM  
I've been waiting for this verdict... Sleep over at my house! PJ's optional.

I'm just kidding....really.
2005-06-13 05:39:22 PM  
Aww... come on. Granted, MJ should probably have his own county somewhere in rural Canada... but, I think most people saw that greedy mother for what she was... least of which, a liar. He's a nutjob, not a kiddie-lover.

And, MJ hasn't always sucked... Off The Wall anyone?? Hullo!
2005-06-13 05:39:26 PM  
Unfortunately, I doubt the new pervert of the week will have hundreds of screaming fans outside the courtroom insisting that he's not guilty. It's doubtful that some Chester the Molester, on trial in some flyover state, will have hundreds of well-wishers who think he's not guilty. (These fans, of course, would have all of Chester the Molester's albums since 1978, when he was in The Molester Five.)
2005-06-13 05:39:37 PM  
So...Jackson's a sick bastard because everyone thinks so?

The fact that the credible evidence and testimony against him was right about at zero doesn't matter? That the accusers have a history of judicial action and lying doesn't matter?

Strange guy, sure - but this bloodlust for someone found innocent via a jury of his peers, using the very poor, nearly nonexistant evidence at hand, it really pretty disturbing.

All jury members with children should be forced to turn their kids over to Jacko for the weekend.
2005-06-13 05:39:45 PM  
Well, that'll be a number of smug Farkers with egg on their faces.

I'm glad he was found not guilty. Being goofy still isn't _quite_ a crime in his jurisdiction.

But go ahead, second-guess. The jurors only saw _weeks_ of evidence. Your knee-jerk dislike of Jackson is surely better informed than the decision rendered by the jury of his peers. So call them idiots, and evangelize his guilt.

But he still gets to go home tonight :)
2005-06-13 05:39:47 PM  
Honestly, did anyone actually believe anything claimed by this shameless menage of spongers?
2005-06-13 05:39:50 PM  
I love how all you pasty losers know he's guilty. There was no evidence in the trial and the people bringing the charges against him weren't credible. And you're angry he was found not guilty?

Why do you hate (the) America(n judicial system)?
2005-06-13 05:39:51 PM  
Justice seen to be done.
2005-06-13 05:39:54 PM  
Hurray for MJ!!!!

2005-06-13 05:39:56 PM  
I don't think anyone is denying that he's a kiddy rapist - it's just that the prosecution failed to prove these charges beyond reasonable doubt. There is a big difference.
2005-06-13 05:40:01 PM  
You know, this could cause Nancy Grace to have a major stroke. YES!

It wasn't the money that got him off, it was his careful choice of molestees. If they come from a family of low-life scammers, nobody believes anything they say.

If he liked pretty rich white girls, he'd have been utterly farked.

Maybe he'll get over his little proclivity and cut a decent album again.
2005-06-13 05:40:14 PM  
Thank God. Now he's free to go out and find the Real Molester.
2005-06-13 05:40:34 PM  
The defense put on a better case. End of story. That said:

[rant] WTF is up with California putting on these four-month-long trials?? They have a penalty phase trial after the first trial, so if he would've been found guilty, the jury would've had to stay there for even longer to determine the penalty. Why does the prosecution out there keep doing that to juries? Who wants to sit on a jury for months and months, especially when the prosecution has a lame-ass case to begin with? [/rant]
