    Wow.

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/SHOWBIZ/Music/11/19/jackson.ranch/index.html

    this has DEFINITELY got my attention. Warrants, searches, the WORKS!

    "All I want, all I need, all I want, all I need
    Just one more chance
    Show you that I love you, baby (I want you back)
    Forget what happened then, let me live again
    Oh baby, I was blind to let you go
    But now since I see you in his arms
    (I want you back) Spare me of this cost
    and give back what I lost "

    –The Jackson 5, "I want you back"

    Oh. And this wonderous tidbit:

    "Stuart Backerman, a spokesman for Jackson, said the singer has been in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the past two-and-a-half weeks, shooting a video for the song "One More Chance." That single is on his "Number Ones" album, a greatest-hits collection released Tuesday by Epic Records."

    Well, if he does go to trial we'll get another lesson in how money and/or top-notch lawyers can affect the outcome of a criminal proceeding.

    so I can almost imagine what it would be like searching Jackson's mansion and the weirdness there in. And then I'd have to up that a couple notches to even approach reality :rolleyes:

    But the big question is what did they find?

    Interestinlgy enough, he did comment on how these scandals tend to surface around the time of a project, album or video release.

    Do people still buy MJ albums???

    He hasn't made a decent album since the days of Thriller IMHO.

    the only problem is that if its a criminal offense here, he might not have a chance at settling out of court.....

    can anyone here imagine what would happen if MJ ended up serving time?

    I honestly don't know if he'd survive....that or go even more out of his mind. And it all depends on what he'd be put away for - child molesting and all bets are off....:(

    All are the same under the law.

    However, given his background, he might get special attention or request solitary and avoid having to deal with the other.

    Mike Tyson didn't get any special privileges? But then again, no body was going to mess with that Mike....;)

    I'd actually put bets on him getting off without any prison time.

    Or some other slap on the wrist

    The fate of John Geoghan should give MJ pause if he actually goes to prison. I doubt it will happen though. If OJ and Durst can get acquitted, surely MJ can too. I wonder how Kobe will fare. I imagine he will get acquitted too.

    What's funny is, if i had to rank the people who i'd want to get acquitted, MJ would probably be first.

    Then Kobe, Durst and OJ. I'd love to see any of them in prison.

    Michael... I think there's a TRUE psychological malfunction with him (look at his family) and I really kinda believe that he thinks he's doing all the right things.

    Kobe, i'm 50-50 on.

    But most of 'em... man. it's sickening to think.

    I figure he'll get off, or at least no prison time. I consider him very suspicious in his demeanor toward children. I doubt this is a coincidence, though he deserves a fair trial (which it won't be). If he goes away for molesting children I assume he will be killed by inmates (as many pedophiles are).

    I guess Jackson is innocent in the eyes of the law until proven guilty, but it'll be hard for him to shake off the new charges in the world of public opinion, whether true or false.

    But somethine else bothers me more:
    Who are these parents who let their children stay with Jackson? Either (a) they ignore the obvious danger based on the previous accusations or (b) they don't know anything about Jackson and his past, as Mr. Sneddon suggests, in which case they are leaving their children with somebody who is a stranger to them. Either way, maybe the parents are the ones who should be locked up for the safety of their children.

    His new one is #1 in the UK, so some people are buying it. Just don't ask what they're smoking. ;)

    Firstly, the CD is a greatest hits album, so they people that made those songs sell will buy this one. They aren't smoking anything, it's their taste in music.

    Also, his advisor as of right now is the lawyer in the Lacy Peterson case. So, he's got a big one. Kobe has the same lawyer from the John Bonet Ramsey case (poor little girl)
