This story reminds me of this post by our Crushkill. How many of these knee jerk MJ supporters have really looked into the series of allegations against him? Do they really ALL stem from the fact that Michael is just “different” and “misunderstood”? How do YOU know he’s just different and misunderstood? How do you know he’s innocent? Is he innocent of pathologically lying about his many cosmetic surgeries? Is he innocent of the baby dangle? Is he innocent of an obsession with children and childhood? Of course the pivotal question is whether this obsession is dangerous.
- Michael Jackson’s family and fans are planning to send a caravan of buses and cars to take fans to support the singer when he appears in court on Friday.
Brother Jermaine Jackson will hold a press conference with fan groups on Monday to give details of their plans.
Also on Monday, 25 Jackson accountants, lawyers, bankers and managers will meet to discuss the star’s business affairs.
….The court hearing on Friday will be the arraignment – the first appearance before a judge at which the charges are read and the defendant enters a plea.
Fans are expected to come from across California – and even further afield – to show their support, according to freelance publicist Angel Howansky, who is helping to co-ordinate the event.
“We’ve had fans calling from out of state who are flying in just for the arraignment,” she said.
….The highly-motivated and well-organised fans will also meet on the evening before the arraignment to make placards for the following day.
The venue for the meeting, the Royal Copenhagen Inn in Solvang, near Santa Maria, is even giving a discount on its rooms for Mr Jackson’s fans. [BBC]
Is this a high school football game or an arraignment?
