The verdict came out and doves were thrown into the sky. Not surprisingly Michael Jackson was found “not guilty”. I’m sure if I was on the jury I probably would have found him not guilty. From what I could tell from the trial neither side had a very solid case. Michael is a weirdo so he could have molested those children and the character of the family seemed pretty poor.
I’m really not surprised. Jail would have killed him. Though knowing the state of the world he’d probably turn it into a reality TV show. Maybe they could have called it “pound-you-in-the-ass prison: the reality show” [pound-you-in-the-ass phrase taken from Dave over at Blogography].
You know what would have been really cool? If the verdict was “guilty” on all ten counts and all of the Jackson fans rioted. Santa Monica in flames. Though if that happened I would have shook my head and completely given up on the US.
