Derrick Mosley, founder of the Bringing About Reform organization, paraded the slain toddler’s grandfather and other relatives in front of Chicago television cameras Wednesday during a news conference at the Public Safety Facility. “It was related to me that Michael Jackson was deeply moved and touched by this death,” Mosley said. He said Jackson’s actions are not related to the singer’s criminal matters pending in California, where he is charged with child molestation. Mosley, unknown here until Monday when he organized a prayer vigil outside the apartment where 23-month-old McClendon Jr., and three others were killed, brought Chicago media to the city for the second time in two days. :nav [url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=13383]Read FULL Article[/url]
