APRIL 5 2005 (5:00 PM ET) — As far as we know at the moment, Blanca Francia is still being cross-examined by Tom Mesereau. It appears that Court TV refuses to get into detail about the points the defense has and is making with Blanca Francia in court today under […]Continue Reading
Pt 4: 1993 Investigation Not a Problem for Defense? MJEOL Bullet #254 Tabloid reporter Diane Dimonds suspicious involvement with current and past allegations has drawn the attention of many people Part 4 | Part 3 | Part 2| Part 1 APRIL 4 2005 Part 3 of this special MJEOL Bullet discussed a number of issues including the prosecutions relentless search for phantom victims of Michael Jackson. Not one to let a tabloid story go unchecked, the prosecution seems absolutely beyond desperate to bring in every piece of unconfirmed and un-cross-examined garbage they can find; attempting to kick up enough dust wishing that the jury cant see through it. Never mind that the therapist who talked to this accuser, Stan Katz, was also involved in the notorious McMartin Preschool case that quickly became a witch-hunt (see article). Never mind that the prosecutions witnesses-come-lately have almost no credibility even before the defense has asked them one question. Never mind the cozy relationships between William Dickerman, Larry Feldman and Stan Katz. Throughout all of nonsense, there remains at least one person of the media, allegedly on the outside looking in, who appears to be too close for comfort. This person was a fixture in the media around the first allegation back in 1993, and emerged from obscurity riding the tabloid-Jackson gravy train. And to obscurity she may return when all is said and done. When tabloid reporter Diane Dimond isnt lying in wait for her next scoop from her highly placed sources, she seems to be actually going out to actively help the prosecution shore up their case against Jackson. Some say her meddling is certainly not a lofty journalistic act in service of the greater good, but rather, her trying to protect future book earnings. She, and the other sentinels (think Matrix Revolutions) stand to make more money if they can get or help the prosecution get a conviction against Jackson; truth be damned. I guess someone should have told them that Jacksons innocence does not rest with one-sided presentations, or unfounded tabloid stories, or proven liars, or bitter ex-employees who had to file for bankruptcy after they sued (and were sued by) Jackson and lost.Continue Reading

Creating Accusers Could Backfire on Desperate Prosecution MJEOL Bullet #255
By bringing in ridiculous, witness-come-lately allegations, the prosecution may be giving Jackson a chance to go after old tabloid rumors
APRIL 1 2005 — There is an old saying Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Someone should have made sure prosecutors in the Michael Jackson so-called case were aware of this before they talked Judge Rodney Melville into allowing in previous allegations-come-lately by what some observers have called a gang of crooks who had their hands out in 1993.
First, its important to note what prosecutors want to do. They want to introduce allegations from witnesses who claimed they saw Jackson molest kids. These witnesses are former employees each with a negative history of their own with Jackson. Neither of these people called the police at the time they allegedly saw a crime in progress.
The prosecution isnt going to have 5 accusers come in to testify. They dont even have 5 accusers. Hes going to have 9 employees come in to say that they witnessed molestation, and one accuser whose mother is already on record denying the allegation.
Now, why they said nothing at the time or why Jackson wasnt charged with any of these miraculously remembered molestations from ex-employees is beyond a number of observers. So, we are now supposed to believe that not only is Jackson a child molester, but that he routinely molests children in front of people?! In internet language: WTF??
Second, the majority of these named young adults have never even made an allegation against Jackson. Yep, you read correctly. The prosecution by way of these crackpot witnesses will create victims when there are none. Whats worse is that two mothers who are supposed to be testifying, Blanca Francia and June Chandler have problems of their own.
For example, the 1993 accuser filed for emancipation and hasnt spoken to his mother, reportedly, in the past 12 years. A number of people arent surprised at all that the judge allowed these non-allegations into this current nonexistent case.The prosecution has been allowed a considerable amount of free-reign in this trial.
With that said, the defense has thrown down the gauntlet by promising that these miraculously recovered allegations will turn into full blown trials because they plan to vigorously and thoroughly challenge these witnesses in every way, shape and form.Continue Reading
