NOT GUILTY

Michael Jackson: Not Guilty A California jury has found Michael Jackson not guilty on all 10 felony counts stemming from child molestation charges. At approximately 2:00pm PT Jackson arrived in court with select family members, including his parents and sister Janet. The judge allowed the audio portion of the verdict to be broadcast live. Loyal Jackson fans, who have been camped outside the court for months, screamed when the verdict was announced. After Jackson was proclaimed a free man, he was escorted outside by bodyguards and family members, shielded by a large black umbrella.A motionless Jackson dabbed at his eyes with a tissue as the verdicts were read, and he later was embraced by his chief lawyer, Thomas Mesereau Jr. Another member of his defense team burst into tears, and some of the women in the jury also wept and passed around a box of tissues. Though he's been known to climb up on his SUV and wave to fans, Jackson quietly got into his waiting vehicle. But first, in a nod to his adoring fans, he patted his hand over his heart. No word on if Jackson's young accuser plans to file a civil suit against the pop star.

I just wrote a post about this today in my blog...

isnt it interesting that the reaction to this verdict is divided largely along color lines?

Why are white folks so predisposed to believe that black folks are automatically guilty?

I wont rewrite my post in your comments... but I think the verdict was the only one that would be just.
