He WILL do it again.

And as long as he does it in California, he'll never serve a day for it.

Californians do not convict the gods they manufacture... of anything, ever. They just don't.

I get it and I appreciate your common-sense stand, thanks! We need more like you, I'm sure seeing a lot of brain-dead comments. Wow, perversion and pedophilia too a giant leap forward on this day.

Does anyone think He bought the jury or threatned them?

No. The mother of the accuser is a professional litigator.

Jackson is, by his own admission, a pedophile who sleeps with little boys and plies them with alcohol. But mama's own weirdness was just enough to counter Jackson's weirdness, to these jurors.

Sneddon also acted like Captain Queeg against Moby Dick (no pun intended), and his desire to somehow get Jackson, any way he could, did him no favors.

The job of the prosecutor is NOT just advocacy. It is to labor for truth.

I agree. But there are many who think the prosecutor is a neutral party.

"Ignore them..remember also, as a pedophile..he's hardwired differently from most people, and more importantly, he's incapable of stopping. He WILL do it again.."


But...but...he was BORN that way!!!

In all seriousness, this is why he will leave America and go to another country. Some say Africa. He could do anything he wants there.....he's just got to pay the right people off.

MJ never would have gotten off with a NY jury. say what you want about NY being liberal, the people here have street smarts. In CA, it is truly the land of fruits and nuts, and they show up on these juries.

but you can see from this verdict why the Clintons crave celebrity status above all else. Being a celebrity in this country insulates you from justice, americans give their "celebrity class" wide leeway to commit any act imagineable, with no accountability. This is exactly why the Clintons crave it.

It's actually funny that anyone would take that stance. There have been plenty of cases over the years that excused the murderous acts of white supremacists/racists based on the fact that they were found "not guilty" by a jury of their peers. Are you actually making the claim that jury verdicts are infallible? Is it your position that second guessing a verdict is somehow subverting justice?

Heaven's no.

But I damn sure am more confident in this jury--which was racially mixed and generally considered "favorable" to the prosecution--than I am in a bunch of people who treated the entire thing as a soap opera.

Sneddon did the right thing not answering the question about pursuing MJ. Had he answered he was done, it would give free license to MJ to continue his activities. Which he's going to do anyway.

Regarding Jackson? Good grief! I have personally seen just how hard it is to prosecute child molestation cases and just how frequently they get away with it, usually because 1) the kid doesn't tell until a long time later, or 2) no one wants to put the kid through the trauma of a trial. As witnessed here, who can blame them? That's why children are such perfect targets.

I also have seen the long term effects on the victim's life.

Jackson is classic. His obsession with children. His obsession with childlike fantasies. His sharing his bed. The physical contact. Alcohol. It couldn't be more obvious.

It sounds to me like the DA's of California need to be taken back to Law school.

They've only won ONE of the last four high profile cases in their state.

The job of the prosecutor is NOT just advocacy. It is to labor for truth. The prosecutor has just as much duty to see the weaknesses and NOT prosecuting a bad case as prosecuting the good cases.

Otherwise the prosecutor's job is to win at any cost. (a mistaken notion of many a prosecutorial hack)

True!! When I was a prosecutor, in more than one case I dismissed it when it became apparent that the wrong person had been charged. It isn't easy to do, but it is the right thing to do.

Except Martha Stewart got convicted.

Also Michael Skakel, though not a celebrity was cousin to the Kennedys.

Of course, those were East Coast trials.

Would you let your son spend that much time with a 42 year old who has been accused, and has had to pay millions out to, another boy said that he was molested? Everyone knows he is a child molester, and she has tried to extort money from others in the past, sometimes using her children. Yes I believe that she allowed her son to get close to Michael Jackson in the hopes that he would do something to her son that would get her paid.
