…..Another celebrity walked away unscathed! Jacko was found not guilty on every count. OJ went free; Robert Blake went free; now Michael Jackson is free. As he walked from the courthouse, Jacko didn't look like an innocent man. He appeared, frankly, like a corpse, but still walking. Where was the smile to have such an abominable burden off his shoulders? Where was the joy?
This leads me to think the man will never be free and joyful–because his conscience has cloaked him with a veil of guilt. Michael Jackson will never be free, because he can never escape himself.
And what about the prosecuters? I have long been convinced that money buys freedom in the person of hot shot lawyers, but I fear there is another side to the story. What kind of prosecutors put witnesses on the stand who turn coat and do exactly the opposite of what was planned? Or the boy's mother who rambled on like a lunatic? How much incompetence does it take to choose such hopeless witnesses? Has affirmative action dumbed down our prosecutors or are they just no match for the F. Lee Bailey's of the world? I don't think I want to know the answer.
