MSNBC host Joe Scarborough (Scarborough Country) spoke with members close to the Jackson family, as well as a noted defense attorney and Court TV’s Lisa Bloom on his Dec 9 show. In Scarborough’s opening remarks, he says:

Quote

…the case against Michael Jackson is going up in smoke…The DA’s charges against Michael Jackson are collapsing like a house of cards. Today, a bombshell blew a hole in the DA’s case…”

That bombshell is the leaked memo which stated that a neutral 3rd party, the Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) independently investigated allegations of molestation against Jackson earlier this year. They found those accusations to be “unfounded,” thus, without merit. An investigation was done in Feb 2003 in which all members of the family—mother, accuser, accuser’s bother and sister—flatly denied any wrongdoing whatsoever. There were multiple interviews conducted by the DCFS in which each member of the family was spoken to separately… One of the major holes in the prosecution’s case is trying to convince a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that Jackson would specifically molest the exact same child—after an investigation, after the mother already sought a civil attorney for who knows what reason, and after a public outcry against misunderstood relationships he’s had with children in general—who initially spurred an investigation into his relationship with children. :4pinnedREAD FULL REPORT >> ================================ FULL REPORT ================================ [b]Case against Jackson Going Up in Smoke? – MJEOL Bullet #39[/b] MSNBC host Joe Scarborough (Scarborough Country) spoke with members close to the Jackson family, as well as a noted defense attorney and Court TV’s Lisa Bloom on his Dec 9 show.

That bombshell is the leaked memo which stated that a neutral 3rd party, the Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) independently investigated allegations of molestation against Jackson earlier this year. They found those accusations to be “unfounded,” thus, without merit. An investigation was done in Feb 2003 in which all members of the family—mother, accuser, accuser’s bother and sister—flatly denied any wrongdoing whatsoever. There were multiple interviews conducted by the DCFS in which each member of the family was spoken to separately. They also confirm what Jackson says in the Bashir documentary about sleeping arrangements: “He denied that he ever slept in the same bed as the entertainer. The child…also denied sexual abuse”(see [url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=11634] Internal Memo: Case Against Jackson “Unfounded”[/url]). The mother confirmed information which Brian Oxman, Jackson family attorney, has been saying throughout the year: Jackson is seldom if ever alone with any child. The mother stated to investigators:

…the mother stated that her children are never alone with the entertainer. She further stated that her son has slept in the same room as the entertainer but they did not share a bed.

Also appearing on the show was Defense Attorney Anne Bremner. When asked if ‘the case of the century’ was over before it’s even began, Bremner replied, “Boy, I think it is at this point. The case was unfounded.” She goes on to explain the difference between the possible outcomes the DCFS could have found which would have been a reason to further investigate Jackson. However, since DCFS concluded the case was “unfounded”, it is puzzling to a number of people as to why Jackson was then further investigated by the DA. Bremner continues:

Quote

And the key isn’t so much that they found it to be unfounded. But the boy said nothing happened. His mother said nothing happened, as did his brother. And these are all inconsistent statements. I just don’t see how this case can survive.

Scarborough also questions the DA’s statement proclaiming that this new information is insignificant. Bremner concurs with Scarborough by saying “It’s extremely significant…given that they said nothing happened…talking to child welfare experts, whose job is to look into child abuse…” She continues, “Tom Sneddon is starting to look like a very overzealous prosecutor if he knew about this information…” Long time Jackson family friend ‘Majestik Magnificent’ weighed in on the case saying, “I’ve been saying it all along that, as time goes on, this case is going to fall apart by the DA. And you see that is exactly what’s happening.” ‘Magnificent’ charged Lisa Bloom with convicting Jackson before she has seen any evidence in the case. Interestingly enough, he also alluded to more evidence which will come out exonerating Jackson:

Quote

And, as time goes on, they will see that he will be cleared. And it’s going to be more things coming out than this. You will see. As time goes on, there will be more evidence coming out to prove that Michael is innocent. The DA can hang it up. He can really—he really can give it up.

Stacey Brown, another Jackson family friend, talked about the family still being disappointed that even after a bombshell of a memo clearing Jackson of abuse was leaked, “the DA refuses to throw in the towel. He knows he doesn’t have a case.” Brown also echoes the sentiment many people viewing this latest information. He says:

Quote

Now, Michael Jackson–one this he’s not is stupid. And if he was a child molester, which this is proven he’s not, why would he molest this child after this investigation, knowing that the investigation is going on?

One of the major holes in the prosecution’s case is trying to convince a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that Jackson would specifically molest the exact same child—after an investigation, after the mother already sought a civil attorney for who knows what reason, and after a public outcry against misunderstood relationships he’s had with children in general—who initially spurred an investigation into his relationship with children. Brown also says that the Jackson’s have every right to expect charges to be dropped (or not to be filed at all) against Michael Jackson. Brown continues, “Tom Sneddon, I’m sure, was somewhere in his office trying to figure out a way in which he can still keep this going.” He adds, “And that’s exactly what he’s doing.” Sneddon may indeed be doing just that, as “sources” are now saying he is preparing to file charges on Dec 15. -MJEOL
