Moments ago at 2:15 am Pakistan time, Michael Jackson has been found not guilty on all 10 counts. To me this was surely a very surprisingly judgment that the Santa Barbara jury passed allowing him to run free for all the molesting charges. I was completely dead set at having him sent to jail for the maximum 18 yrs. Im stunned
Update – More comments: Looking back at the trial it gives you a good idea how the US media works. Gone are the days of being innocent until proven guilty as with the media frenzy its more like Guilty Until Proven Innocent. That is exactly how this trial went, media had, to the last moment determined for itself that Jackson was Guilty and all the pundits were already warming their butchering knifes and were revving up for a victory celebration. It must have been a missed heartbeat for the editors to scramble a new story line once they started hearing the words Not Guilty. I was sure if MJ was found guilty the media would have danced all over him for atleast a few additional months but now with a not guilty verdict it no longer remains a juicy story and will fade away within a few days as its no fun trying to ridicule an innocent person. Sitting all the way across the world in Pakistan, I and many others were exposed to the constant media bombardment of Jackson being a child molester and were throughly convinced that a guilty verdict was soon to follow – hell – I was extremenly disappointed at hearing the Not Guilty verdict and for a few hours felt betrayed by the American Judicail system. A good nights sleep put things in better perspective and I was satisfied at Jacko being innocent after a well fought trail. Jackson I now make peace with you and hope you continue to mavel us with a few more stunning music pieces.
