Good news as far as I'm concerned. I really don't think he did anything wrong and the family was just trying to cash in on him.

No, not really surprised that he got off. From the bits and pieces I followed on this case Jackson's lawyers seemed to do a pretty good job of discrediting a significant portion of the prosecution's case to the point that it was tough to believe his accusers.

Now, hopefully the big dummy will have learned his lesson and stop putting himself into compromising situations with other people's children.

How much do you want to bet he won't? He's still Michael Jackson and I hardly doubt he'll change his ways. Children will still keep coming to Neverland and he'll keep sleeping with them.

that MAY have been the case... in this case... but would you bet your life that MJ has never behaved innappropriately sexually with young boys? I mean it's just freakin obvious.

Jacko pays lawyers a gazillion dollars. Said lawyers succeed in casting 'reasonable doubt' on accuser. Verdict= innocent. Case closed...... would you let your kids go to Neverland?
@#%^ NO!

I was a huge Michael Jackson fan back in the 80s; still love some of those early songs, and will get down to them. Do I think he's a homosexual pedophile? Yes!!! He's lucky he's had so much musical success... cuz otherwise he'd be the ***** of all *****es in prison.

Shawndo, I have pretty much the same opinion. The prosecution is responsible to make a case against the defendant in criminal procedings and their case was based on the testimony of some less than credible witnesses, who have admitted to lying in cases before.
Is Michael Jackson guilty of criminal activity? Perhaps, but this case did nothing to prove it.
Michael Jackson was one of the most gifted entertainers of our time. He clearly has some issues to be dealt with. I do wish him the best in his search for his "perfect" world.

I'm not at all surprised that he was not guilty on all counts. Hell, I and pretty much everyone else could've told you that when this whole mess of a trial began. Hopefully the next tabloid grabber won't last, you know, twelve years!

Man, I am sooooo glad this crap is done with.

I am also most glad this is over with and we can move on. Leave the dude alone, he obviously has issues, and I can see him being guilty because of his obvious weirdness, but I can also see it as people in it for the money. But in general, I wasn't on the jury and don't know if he was guilty or not. So it's time to move on.

I think the one juror, whose name escapes me, that switched his guilty vote hit the nail on the head. He basically said Jackson probably has molested kids in the past, but as the other members of the jury pointed out in this particular case there was no way he could be found guilty based on the facts presented in this particular case.

Jackson basically went free for the same reasons OJ did. The prosecution got so caught up in trying to put away a high profile celebrity that they neglected to take into account that they had a pretty suspect case that any good defense lawyer could breeze through and win without too much effort.

What was really funny was the "live coverage" Conan's show had this week where they pretended to have helicoptors over Jackson's caravan. They showed Michael stopping at a playground and hauling it home on the back of his vehicle, as well as him getting into an ice cream truck to attract kids. I could just imagine him going crazy and celebrating after being found guilty and doing these things. I almost wet my pants... :lol:

LOL! hey come on....who DIDN'T like Thriller..?
Michael is far from the musical artist you kind of have to suspend personal judgement on, in order to enjoy quality music. Especially the 80s! I love 80s music, but try watching a music video from the 80s and try not to let it ruin the song for you. Were the 80s officially the gayest American decade ever?
