Watching the verdict on television with his
Yeah, they look completely devastated as Sneddon and Zonen
want us all to believe, while doing their rounds of damage control
on the networks [this morning]. Someone saw these same photos
in Sun news, and the store keeper had said they were looking
up at the news when it said a verdict was reached in the Jackson
trial, so they rushed home to disappointment. Wouldnt
a real victim be you know
somewhat HURT? Disgusted? Or
would he calmly walk out of the store, STILL EATING HIS CANDY?
Thats the only show of emotion there is here. Not anger
or tears. Just chewing, like theyre watching a television
show or telemovie?
TEEN WATCHES MJ JUSTICE
By Jenny Watson and Kate Sheehy
Michael Jacksons down-in-the-dumps teen sex accuser couldnt
keep his eyes off TV coverage of his sensational abuse case
hours after a jury exonerated the singer on all charges.
The handsome 16-year-old strolled into a corner store near his
familys Los Angeles home at 9:20 p.m. local time Monday
to try to take his mind off the verdict and buy some candy with
his younger brother.
But he found himself once again riveted to the around-the-clock
coverage featuring his allegations against the pop star.
Photos of the siblings show the accuser munching a chocolate
bar while he and his brother intently stare at a store TV screen
to catch the latest news on his case, Splash News reports.
When the TV segment on his court battle was over, the boy and
his brother headed out the door for their five-minute walk home.
Hours earlier, the boy had raced home from school on his bicycle
with just 10 minutes to spare as it was announced
a verdict had been reached.
He appeared surprisingly confident as he and his brother raced
up to the doorstep of their familys modest new home at
2:05 p.m. The teen was spotted smiling in jeans and a T-shirt,
carrying a white backpack stuffed with school books, while entering
the house with his two-wheeler.
As the brothers older sister opened the door to let them
in, Jacksons accuser turned to flash a reassuring smile
at his younger sibling.
The younger boy had testified that he had seen MJ abuse his
sibling twice from a stairwell at the singers Neverland
Ranch in 2003.
After getting home yesterday, MJs accuser then huddled
in front of the TV shortly before 5 p.m. with his mom, siblings
and stepdad inside the home to listen as the jurys verdict
exonerated Jackson on all counts and essentially rejected
the cancer survivors tale of sordid sex abuse.
Within minutes, jurors would reveal that they didnt find
the boy credible and that they detested his shady mom,
who would snap her fingers at them while on the stand.
The teen remained in hiding with his family at home yesterday.
Prosecutor Tom Sneddon said the youngster was discouraged
that the jury didnt believe what he said.
He couldnt understand it and was down, Sneddon
Sneddon also called Jackson pathetic, while insisting,
I dont have any vendetta against him.
Jackson remained out of the public eye at Neverland in Los
Olivos yesterday, but his dad, Joe, was anything but shy. The
angry father ripped several TV reporters for their coverage
before adding, Michaels fine, hes gonna be
all right. Hes doing pretty good.
Later, one of the singers bodyguards drove down to the
ranchs gates to scoop up cards and stuffed animals left
by some of the 100 adoring fans gathered there.
Thank God Michael is vindicated for all time, said
one of his most loyal famous pals, Elizabeth Taylor. Now,
maybe people will leave him alone.

So that would explain the night shots doesnt it?
These kids have had their reality warped by the mothers
madness. To me, these pics look like full, clear photos to be
sold. If Gloria Allred is looking for kids to adopt, here are
some prime candidates. They just need love and candy Gloria.
Also being said that these look like another last ditch effort
to squeeze some $$$ out of this whole ordeal. Quick, go to take
pictures at the store so we can sell them and make more $$$
before no one cares anymore. Sad actually.
So now knowing the back story, the pictures do look posed/set-up
dont they? These innocent children, going to the neighborhood
candy store (yeah, at 9:30 pm on a school night?) These pictures
are bothersome to me beyond belief. They are calm, free,
