Well, I don't know what to say.



I'm 90% surprised.



What next for MJ? I suppose it's time to close up Neverland, get some money together, and try to live normally. \

    How many more kids? this makes what 3 or more we know of??? Lawyers $$$$$$ and a sytem wanting nothing more then the appearence of justice. Do Millionaires ever do the time? not very often because its about $$$$$ Multi High Dollar lawyers vs.......the town lawyer who is overworked,underpaid,.....few more adjectives. Jury was wrong, I guess a Wacko doesnt rule over a Jacko.

    Typically it's hard to get convictions on public figures like Jackson or Simpson or "insert once famous person here". They have the money for adequate legal counsel and that generally results in a leveling of the playing field and a loss for the prosecutor.



    I don't know if Jackson was guilty or being manipulated but I think the man needs help in many aspects of his life and I want to see him get that help and avoid contact with children.

    He's been ACCUSED in the past, not been FOUND GUILTY in the past. Let's try to remember that.

    Michael Jackson needs to liquidate his holdings, fire his staff, pay off his debt, and hide out in Costa Rica or something.



    At the rate he is going, he will end up either bankrupt or in jail eventually. In fact, if he goes bankrupt, he wont be able to afford the lawyers anymore, so things will work out in the end.

    Given the evidence, justice was served. Otherwise, nothing but victims in this case.

    Innocent or not... that man is still one crazy MF The damage to his "career" is surely irreparable.



    Mike, I hear they're hiring down at McDonalds......

    I see a career in Vegas. His time for releasing 'popular music' was finished years ago.



    Sideshow, or main stage - I'm not sure where he's better suited.

    he has no money.. he's about 200million $ in debt i think i heard on the news friday? so he'll have to close it up, unless he can come up w/ that money to get out of debt, then the extra to maintain that...

    The jury is giving an interview on Fox News.



    Saturday Night Live is going to/should have a field day with this.

    well, someone made a good point that, even though michael jackson is "bankrupt" (or well into debt), the man can still hold a quick concert or tour and raise a ridiculous amount of money. the guy still draws.



    i have no idea of the evidence in the case, so i have to assume the jury gave the best verdict they could, but i just don't see how anyone with so much fame/notoriety can get a totally unbiased jury.



    and hey, don't knock smooth criminal, man. that's still one of my all time favorite songs...

    I'm not surprised at all. Saddened and disappointed (a little)...but mostly in the apparently incompetent prosecutors.



    I followed the case...a bit...they tried the "guilt by implication" approach. It failed. This is good from a legal/justice perspective (I get nervous when I see people get convicted on very weak prosecutorial cases)...bad because Jacko probably did do all of those things (or a lot of them anyway). Of course there is eternal justice.



    One can only hope that he got enough of the crap scared out of him to stop doing what he's doing...and parents...yeah...you morons that let your kids sleep with a 40 year old man...WAKE UP! Stop doing that! Eliminate the "supply". Duh!



    P.S. I actually feel (a little) badly for MJ. Somebody screwed him up good...probably as a boy. Somebody messed up his head pretty badly. I think we're seeing the results of that. I'm not saying he isn't responsible for his own actions. He is. He can get help and all that. But he probably starts out further back than most with whatever someone did to him. And now he appears to be propagating that to even more kids.

    OH... you evaluated the evidence just like the jury. I can tell from how often you hyper-enunciate certain words.

    M.T.F., heh, good one...



    Let us all celebrate this occasion. From this day forward, it's OK for a grown freak, err, MAN, 42 years old, to sleep with 12 year old boys after they've had their Jesus Juice... Hip hip hooray!



    Michael we love (sounds of screaming fans inserted here...) you...
