I agree, it's because he has money. If he wasn't famous, then he would have been found guilty. They find people guilty of murder on less evidence than what he had. Then again, think about how the jury feels. If they would have found him guilty, think of all the death threats and harrasment they would have endoured from MJ finatics. I would be terrified to return a guilty verdict if I was in their shoes. Thankfully the biggest crime committed around here is retail theft under $100.

If you belive he is guilty or not, there is no way any of us can have a real opinion about the truth. As RR said, who was in the courtroom?? All we know is what the media tells us. I startes this thread, and I wish that you could keep your comments civil so it doesnt get locked.

You can disagree with the verdict, just do it properly please.

IMO, there wasn't enough to convince me of his guilt. The prosecution had a very poor case, and presented it even poorer. The whole case was, "He said that she said that the kid saw this happen"... There really was no hard evidence. Again, JUST MY OPINION

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound like I was being snippy or anything.

Eh. I wouldn't go that far.
If hes guilty then he will most likely do it again. In that case we can try him again, and if he dosn't go it again, then its all for the better i suppose. I feel sorry for the kid, and his family, but I suppose I would also feel sorry for michael jacksons family for having to be put through this whole ordeal.

I'm not saying Jackson isn't totally disturbed or that he's innocent of the charges, but I think the reason he won was because of the scumbag family that prosecuted. Personal-injury suit chasing scumbags. They'd already frivolously sued JCPenney for personal injury damages.

but IMO the guy is guilty of doing inapropriate things to children from things i have read and heard before.
LOL, contradiction in one paragraph....

So if we want people to be innocent until proven guilty in this country we would protect the identity of the accused as well as the accuser.
I'm sure we would do just that, if your will to give up just a few of the freedoms our forefathers felt were essential when building this country and writing the bill of rights...

With regards to the family... I think the mom's ultimate plan was to get Jackson to molest her kid to get another payday....

Think about it, what parent in their right mind would let their kid spend the night with a guy who has paid millions of dollars to make a molestation case go away? Someone who is willing to do anything for money, and this lady fits that profile.

That's an opinion I can agree with, even though it is wild speculation...
