Jackson Jurors Infected with Plague

Tuesday, August 9th 2005

On June 13th, 2005, twelve jurors that were selected to serve on a child molestation trial unanimously acquitted the defendant, Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was indicted by a federal grand jury on four counts of child molestation, four counts of administering an intoxicating agent, one count of attempted child molestation and one count of conspiracy to commit child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion. Jackson maintained his innocence throughout the entire course of the trial.


To everyone watching, it seemed that all odds were against him. Jackson's unorthodox way of living is heavily scrutinized by the world media and by much of the public, especially the American media and public. There was never a time that you could turn on any major news network and not see some type of coverage on the Jackson trial. Everyone had to get on television and shove their opinions down the throats of the public that sat back and watched.

General coverage of the Jackson trial was negative. The worst moments of the trial for Jackson is what we saw shoved before our eyes, no matter how strong the better moments may have been. Hardly anyone was interested in subjecting the public to fair a balanced coverage of this case. What was the result? A 'shocked' America when an acquittal was handed down.

But, to those of us that wanted to know more and bothered to try and learn both sides, it didn't come as such a shock. The prosecution's case was full of holes, from the constant lies of their witnesses to just the pure stupidity of the accusations. Any ammunition they had to work with was quickly depleted by a constant flow of shady witnesses.

The prosecution had several witnesses testify to seeing Jackson act inappropriately with young boys. The allegations ranged from seeing Jackson lick the head of one boy, seeing Jackson touching the rear of another boy, seeing Jackson kissing another, to even seeing Michael Jackson performing oral sex on another. These are all horrible things to imagine a grown adult doing to a child. Imagine your outrage and disgust had you been witness to anything of this nature.

What would your reaction be?

Say the culprit of these crimes was your super-star employer. Would your reaction be to keep quiet so you could keep your minimum wage paying job?

Say this employer then fired you.

Would you steal things from his home and sell it to tabloids for large sums of money? Would you run to a tabloid instead of the police and tell them what you saw? Would you sue your pedophile employer for wrongful termination? Would you rather write a book about what you let happen, rather than taking matters to someone that could stop it? Would you wait eleven years to have to be subpoenaed in order for you to finally tell what you witnessed to people that could actually find a way to stop these things from occurring?

Most people would tell a higher authority as soon as possible, and probably would take the initiative to quit before the employer even had the chance to have you fired. But the witnesses in the Jackson trial suffered an epidemic. Most of the witnesses seemed to be infected, from the accusing families to Jackson's former employees, to his former associates.

They all sat back and let these so-called crimes continue, and all found ways to generate monetary gain from the alleged misfortunes of these victims.

Unfortunately, it seems that while in the courtroom with these infected witnesses, a couple of the jurors contracted this epidemic. Eleanor Cook and Ray Hultman, who have now decided to write books about Jackson's guilt.

Jackson's fate was laid in the hands of these jurors. All of them had equal input and were required to base their decision on facts presented during the trial. The jurors deliberated for seven days and then returned with a complete acquittal.

After the trial was concluded most of the jurors made television appearances to try and justify to the public how and why they made their decision. While some of them had suspicions about the way Jackson lived his life, they all conceded that given the facts in the trial, a conviction would have been the wrong decision.

The jurors were seen on CNN's Larry King Live, after the verdict and they explained in detail what went on in their deliberations. Eleanor Cook told viewers that while she had reservations about Jackson, she couldn't use that to base her decision. Cook said she tried and tried to look for evidence, but there wasn't any at all. Ray Hultman shared her sentiments. These were comments that they both made to various news networks, on the record.

Now they have both changed their tunes.

Hultman is writing a book titled "The Deliberator" and Cook will release one titled "Guilty as Sin, Free as a Bird."

Though after the verdict Cook was keen on emphasizing the closeness of the jurors and the friendships formed during the course of the trial, she's now resorted to talking down on her fellow jurors, jurors she called her friends.

Cook told MSNBC of the jurors, "They can be as angry as they want to [with me]. They ought to be ashamed. They're the ones that let a pedophile go."

A comment that would be understandable for a common citizen to say, someone that had no control over the outcome of this trial. But for a juror, who sat and watched the events of the trial every single day for months, this is not acceptable. For a juror that held the ultimate decision in their hands, this is not acceptable.

Both of these jurors had the same input as the others, no more and no less. None of them were held at gunpoint and forced to make their decision one way or another. If these two felt that they would be letting a threat to society go free, they damn well should have put down their foots and refused to acquit. That was their duty. Michael Jackson is not your average person. Jackson's influence alone has managed to change the entire course of our pop culture. If there is a chance that someone with his power and influence is using that power to victimize children, it would be your duty to make sure it is stopped should the decision be put in your hands.

How dare Cook and Hultman shove this on the other jurors as if they were not a part of that jury, as if they are not responsible for the final outcome.

The majority of the jury pool that acquitted Michael Jackson believed and still believe that they did the right thing. They can go to sleep at night and rest assured that they rightfully acquitted an innocent man. These two now say that from the start they believed in Jackson's guilt, but yet they let him free, and for what?

Which is more unjust? Who should be ashamed?

Cook told Larry King that if she ever wrote a book, it would be about the jury deliberations and the friendships they formed while serving. That was an apparent lie. Eleanor Cook was reported to be fishing for a book deal from the very moment she was seated on that jury pool.

Melissa Herard and Pauline Cuccoz, two other jurors from the Jackson trial told MSNBC that none of the jurors were pressured into handing down a 'not guilty' vote. They say they only encouraged one another to base all of their decisions on facts and evidence presented during the trial. Everything that was brought against Jackson had to be backed up with evidence, but that was not the case. The case presented before them was filled with lies, inconsistencies, and stories that would be hard for anyone to process.

What good will it do to write a book about how guilty a man that you are responsible for setting free is? Is their goal to anger the public? Are they admitting to the world their fault?

To people that believed in Jackson's guilt, it will be extremely off putting to think that these jurors let Jackson go and then now have the audacity to complain about what they let slip through their fingers.

For believers in his innocence, it's the same thing. And it's further evidence that the love of money will lead people to do foolish things.

Sorry if it seemed out of nowhere. I just got very frustrated last night after reading what's going on, and I couldn't stay online long enough to find out everything in detail because I'm connected from a hotel room...which charges money. I just had to write something down to get it out! :)
