Its finally over its all been read and they found him not guilty. How many of you guys followed this and thought that it would turn out this way?

I have been a life long fan of Jackson, I was hoping he wasn't guilty.
He has brought it on himself and he now needs to think about the way he acts.

I used to be a fan of Jacko, But I think its a shame that the sexual preditor was let off. And you know he is going to have some little boys over. I think that all his fans should have to ship their kids to him so he can "entertain" them and see if they feel the same way when their kids come home and tell them that jacko molested them.

Unfortunately Corey you weren't a member of the Jury so your verdict on the man doesn't count..

The significant factor to ask yourself is this..If your kids had been molested would you go to the Police or a Lawyer?

I wish Jacko luck for the future and hope now that his naievity as regards kids has totally gone.

I didn't believe Jackson was guilty however it is undeniable he is a very strange person and has bought this upon himself.

I was glad to see him found Not Guilty. I do not say you will see too much of a change in the way he acts, but you will see less of him in public most likely.
Thanks! Scott B.

He will do some interviews and a concert tour because he is broke.

I'm taking bets on which jury member gets his book out first.

I actually pondered that while watching the verdict. Which juror will try to benefit financially from it.

If you weren't on the jury panel, you do NOT have all the facts. Plain and simple. They ruled that he was not guilty of ALL charges, even the minor ones of serving liquor to a minor, to the standard of "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt," which is the legal standard in a criminal case.

If the mother of the kid decides to go after him in civil court, after stating, over and over again that the case was "not about the money" she is going to have a tough time there because, in civil court, it IS about the money and she is going to look like she IS going for the gold - his.

It's a sad thing to see, from whatever side you look at it.

I thought he would be found not guilty. My opinion and pure speculation by me is that the victim and his family were less than sympathetic in light of the numerous scams the family had been accused of in the past. That may have made them harder to believe by the jury, IMO, and resulted in reasonable doubt.

Despite being found not guilty I also think it is beyond the pale to be in your 40s and sharing your bed with boys. Then to go on TV and try to rationalize it was creepy.

Once he's healthy I think he will do concerts, but not in this country. Maybe he can hire Mike Tyson to head his security team.

I saw the orginal interview that led to the charges ... I thought he was guilty, and I'm sure if Jackson wasn't sitting next to the boy to change the subject, the kid would have made even more damaging revelation - Jackson cut the kid off after he said "well, there was that one time when......"

As for getting off, no surprise ... with the American legal system, there is no reason that anyone is ever put in jail here, other than the fact that they can't afford an attorney.

Jackson took his legal team to Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate after the verdict!

One jury member said that a deciding factor was the way arviso's mother kept clicking her fingers at them!

So with all of the facts the jury still focused on non factual information. ie. they didn't like arviso's mother.

I have 8 children...and I'm a grandfather, Jacksons sexual problems are such that I would never in my right mind EVER let any of my kids 'Spend the night' with M. Jackson. I myself have seen how sexual predators hunt their prey. I've lived in some shady neighborhoods and have seen families within my own neighborhood undergo these very same hardships...it is plain out wrong.

Jackson was found not guilty simply because he IS Michael Jackson.

Do you really think the the members of the jury would let their kids spend the night at Jacko's house? C'mon!!??

I bet they wouldn't let their kids in Neverland.

The thing is, we propably never know the truth. What the jury says really has very little to do with the truth.

If Jacko really is guilty, it makes me wonder why would he behave like that on TV? To construct a sort of an alibi? As he must realize that sort of behavior is very incriminating.

Still, it is possible he is so incredibly naive that his actions really are innocent and he really is sincere about these things. Even in that case, it is unnatural for little boys to sleep in 46 yo man's bed when that person is not a member of their family. Even if nothing ever happened, I see that as quite perverse.

I tend to think he has never grown up and essentially is a child mentally (that's a handicap, ain't it?)-that would explain his naivety about so many things. Or he is extremely ruthless and cunning individual.

Whatever the case, I can still enjoy his usic.

I don't think I'd like to work for Michael as his magician... I got out of working children's parties a long time ago. Smile

I'm still more concerned about the adults who bring their children to sleep at Jackson's house.

One thing to know there's a tiger in the house. Another thing to send in your children knowing that there's a tiger in the forrest.
