Lessons From A Court Room

Posted in: Child Welfare,Crime,Media

I have promised myself this is the last post I will do on Michael Jackson. The verdict is in and although many may not agree, we all have to live with it. I think we can learn two very valuable lessons from the charade that was the Michael Jackson trial.

1. Settle your case and do not ever let a jury “of your peers” decide your fate.
2. ‘Don’t snap your fingers’ in Court.

“I disliked it intently when she snapped her fingers at us,” said Juror No. 5, a 79-year-old great- grandmother.

“That’s when I thought, ‘Don’t snap your fingers at me, lady.’ “

Jury of your peers. Who’s peer’s?

But somehow juror #5 did not dislike intently the idea that a 40 year old man admittedly sleeps with boys that are of no relation to him in a palatial mansion with how many bedrooms? Juror #5 better get a sense of perspective. Oh, but know his lawyer says, he is not going to do that anymore. Atty. Mesereau, do what, exactly?

Then there was juror #1 who made this brilliant comment,

I feel that Michael Jackson has probably molested boys,” Hultman said on CNN. “To be in your bedroom for 365 straight days and not do something more than just watch television and eat popcorn, that doesn’t make sense to me.

But that doesn’t make him guilty of the charges that were presented.”

WHAT!!! This man just admitted he thought he was a child molester and thinks that it only happens on occasion. This jury put the mother ahead of a suspected child molester that many of them though had in fact committed the crime? (Red just shakes his head in disbelief).

The Moderate Voice asks, “will he change his lifestyle”? Red says, “nope, his handlers will just do a better job of covering it up in the future. Or maybe Michael will just buy an island with no media accessibility”.

CNN, Attorney: Jackson will be more careful

Michael Jackson’s lead defense attorney said Tuesday that he believes his client’s behavior will change now that Jackson has been acquitted of charges including child molestation.

Yeah, I bet he will. Atty. Mesereau, Gee ya think?
