On ABC news radio, Alex Stone claimed that the feeling among [b]legal pundits is about 50/50 on guilt versus innocence and once again hyped the effectiveness of the accuser's police interview video, while conceding no one knows the jury's minds. I get more skeptical every time they go back to that well, especially when I hear such things as Steve Cron admitting in the Online Legal Review interview that he never saw the video even while he thinks it's strong evidence. Andrew Cohen seems to have done a stunning about-face on the relative strengths of the defense and prosecution cases, but there's no evidence in his article that he's seen the video either. He's just analyzing what's being said about it. How many of these jaw-flappers can honestly say they saw the video and were as impressed by it as we're being told? When the jurors make their eventual rounds of "Dateline" or whatever, we may find out it actually made little difference to their decision.

This is a great article!!!!!
Mesereau suggested the accuser and his brother feigned innocence on sexual matters. In a video of the accuser's first interview with sheriff's investigators "he acts like he doesn't know what an erection is. He's 13," the attorney said.
Mesereau also said the boy was unemotional as he described the alleged molestation in the video and in testimony. He asked jurors to remember the boy's demeanor on the stand.
"You saw no emotion whatsoever. When did you see him really get angry? When he talked about Michael Jackson abandoning his family," Mesereau said.

LISTEN to [b]The JusticeSystem.net's report about Gavin's police videotape, played May 27, 2005 to the jury:
Click link to LISTEN to Justice's news video!
This features reporter Raffles van Excel at Tuesday's May 31, 2005 TheJusticeSystem.net news roundup.
Evidently Gavin Arvizo said in his police interview that Jackson "always slept on the ground!"
The jury heard it in the first 15 minutes of the tape!

As many of you may already know, I am with Michael every morning before his appearance in court. I share all of your love and support with him. I told him about our prayer circle out side of his gates last night. He was so touched, he wanted to be sure I told everybody how much he loves each and every one of you. He said “Turkle” please make sure you tell everyone I mean this from the deepest part of my heart.
There is no better place than Mjjsource to be able to reach as many of his loyal fan as I can with his message. So please, everyone know that he is receiving all of our prayers, unconditional love, and efforts. No one, and nothing is going unnoticed…He feels the presence of all of you.
Let’s keep dancing for him….so he can come back and dance with us!!!!
We love you more Michael!!!!!!
