Any bets on whether or not he's guilty? I'm betting he'll get off.

I doubt it, Jacko is in serious debt as it is.

Jackson probably had bets going in Vegas that he'd get off.

It's kind of like the whole 9/11 thing. The Al Quaida group bought millions of $ worth of call/put options knowing the market would tank after the strike. It nearly paid off for them, except a few bright eye's people in the US government caught it as it was happening. It's like paying someone to kick you in the nuts after they did it.

Now come on, the man might be perfectly innocent.

It sounds to me as if the jury had no choice really but to acquit... too much doubt about the prosecution case.

I think justice WAS done this time. It doesn't matter if Jackson did it or not, the prosecution services dropped the ball big-style.

I think the most important issue in this (like the OJ trial) is the most important words you'd want to hear if you were on trial: Reasonable Doubt.

It's too bad it isn't applied fairly in all cases (there have been rape/murder trials based on circumstantial evidence where passions ran hot and generated a conviction) but I think the most important part of any murder trial is that a jury must be convinced that the person on trial is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The OJ trial didn't have enough evidence to do this, whether he was guilty or not. Apparently the same is true with the Michael Jackson trial. If I was a juror in a murder, rape, abuse, or otherwise violent crime case, I'd want all the facts in hand and I'd want a clear cut case with more than just a few circumstantial events. Without those two words, it would be far too easy for a jury to target their hatred of the crime committed against the defendant, whether he was guilty or innocent, and wrongly convict. Too often these days, people are presumed guilty by the public just because they are put on trial. My dislike of Michael Jackson aside, I think that presumption needs to end.
