When I heard the phrase “not guilty” spoken 10 separate times yesterday during live coverage of Michael Jackson’s trial, I can’t say I was surprised. Although the charges I read about sounded terrible, they didn’t link together to create a solid case against the pop star.
It seems the media treats Jackson like a freak, a weirdo. But the judicial system, I think, did its job. The prosecution didn’t have enough evidence to prove Jackson is an illegal man.
Sure, Jacko may be a little odd, but that doesn’t immediately make him a without-a-doubt criminal.
