Spursfan/Anne, if I can call you that.

Does it not worry you though that he was found with child porn on his property? They made mention of it being displayed in court and it reducing his mother to tears.

That, for me, is telling.

Savvy, Anne? Oh, I do hope so!

the judicial system is SERIOUSLY flawed.

Flawed or not, it is still the best thing going. In most of the world, there wouldn't have even been a trial, since he's wealthy or has the potential to be wealthy again.

I hate to differ, but Jackson was found "not guilty" instead of innocent. Not guilty, technically, means the same thing as not proven. In the O.J. Simpson trial, the jury simply refused to believe the evidence, so he was found not quilty.

Blasi, yes they did find porn, but according to the news it was all legal. I don't think it was child porn. One witness also said that that little s**t Gavin Alviso (or however the heck you spell it!) and his brother Star actually stole porn and wine from Michael, and were then seen pleasuring themselves. Michael did not show them the porn as was first believed, they apparently got it themselves.

The jury said there was no "smoking gun", no real big chunk of evidence that said 'yes, he did it'. Personally, I don't just think he's not guilty, but totally innocent.

As a fan of his music (my all time fave song is Smooth Criminal) you could well say I'm bias. But I truly believe that he is innocent. Ok, so he didn't help matters by sharing his bed with children. I'm sure many of you here saw the Martin Bashier interview, where Jackson said the most loving thing you can do is share your bed with someone. He said what we were all thinking when he said "when you say bed, you think of sex". It's true. If you hear about someone sharing a bed you automatically think it's sexual.

I guess the question is: is that wrong, or does Michael simply love too much? Given the state of the world these days it's no wonder that when someone shows an enormous amount of love people become suspicious. Ok, so I'm not a mother, so I can't say if I would approve of it or not (I'm only 19). But I just think that Michael cares too much. We see the extent of his generosity and love and we can't stomach it, not because we are bad people, but because we are not used to it, we don't often see it.

I guess his appearence doesn't help much either. I look back at his Thriller days and he looked amazing...

Sorry for the long post!!!

Is it just me or did anyone else think that the jurors looked like they could be the contestants for the next series of 'Survivor'?!

>>are not clearly looking at the evidence

Hello. Wake up. If evidence was there, then he would be in Jail right now. People go on and on and on about this "evidence" which obviously was not credible. You're all referring to what you heard in the news, not the reality. Why people cannot realize this simple fact, stuns me. The guy was found innocent. Get over it. Get over your prejudice and suspicions and move on. Innocent until proven guilty. Not the other way around. Nobody knows if in reality he did those things. But all that matters is that a "fair" trial took place, and that's all that mattered to me. I did not want to see a witch hunt in which a man went down because 50% of America "Wanted" the man to go down. Conspiracy theories are now popping up that his money influenced the jury. Again, show me the evidence. Because without it, it's only more theoretical B.S.

Well said Godfather!!!!
Re: Jacko: Not Guilty by Blasi on 15 June 2005 3:36pm
He was found innocent of those charges. Does that mean he's innocent of everything he's suspected of? No.

Similarly to the OJ Simpson case, I dont think exoneration by law will do anything to change general consensus.
