    Not a suprise actually. I cannot believe he was not found guilty of giving intoxicants to minors. There were way too many witnesses that admitted this. Just goes to show what money can buy.

    Me too. This really pisses me off. I can (kinda) understand him not getting convicted on the molestation charges as the defense did a good job of making the case about the victims mother and not Michael. But I cannot believe that he was not at all convicted of the lesser offenses of providing alcohol to minors as a very good case was made in regards to those charges. Employees of Michael Jackson admitted that sometimes booze was put in coke and given to kids. Why is it that California will NEVER convict a celebrity. I guess now we know who really runs that state.

    New Jaguars and beach houses for each member of the jury.

    I'm sure lots of folks "think" he did it - however, we live in a system that has to present "beyond reasonable doubt" that he did it - and that didn't happen.

    That being the case, the jury - technically - did the right thing...

    I merged Semper Fi's "Jackson Walks" thread into here. No sense having two threads in two forums on the same discussion.

    I once heard that he would be leaving the country after the trial...

    Maybe Paris can make him an honorary citizen like it did with Mumia Abdul Jabal
