R. Kelly Jurors: No Doubt It's Him on the Tape

6/13/2008 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even though jurors in the trial of R. Kelly absolutely believed it was him on the tape, they could not reach a guilty verdict because they said there was "not enough evidence to prosecute." Huh?!

Five of the twelve jurors met with reporters immediately after handing down the acquittal. They said they just couldn't reach a verdict even though they voted on the hour, every hour because the alleged victim hadn't testified and refused to cooperate. As recently as this morning, we're told, the vote was split nine to three for a not guilty verdict.

The jurors were also "absolutely disgusted" with the tape. Unlike the bootleg version you can buy on the street corner, the version they got to watch was "clear as day."

We're hearing R. Kelly will be partying it up tonight in Chicago.

JUSTICE, WHAT JUSTICE, THE JUSTICE SYSTEM STINKS.

TIME TO DO AWAY WITH JURY DUTY, NO ONE WANTS TO GO ANYWAY, AND NO ONE CAN MAKE A DECISION THAT IS CORRECT.

Everyone is missing the point here, without stone cold evidence to prove who the chick is in the film and what her age was at the time they COULDN'T legally convict him. Yeah it sucks and his past speaks for itself *cough* Aaliyah *cough* look at it like this no woman young or old will touch him unless she's an escort and probably without him dropping some serious cash.

Yea for R Kelly! If you guys had seen the tape, the girl looked like she could be anywhere from 15 to 20! She acted somewhat like a prostitute and was accustomed to any position and any sex act. I simply could not buy that this girl was the age they said she was. They couldn't even identify her! Yes, some of the jurors were stupid. Four of them thought it was R. Kelly on the tape and it was repeatedly pointed out that there was no mole on the back of the man on the tape.R. Kelly clearly showed that he does have a mole. I'm surprised they didn't deadlock.Anyway, they were split 9 to 3 for aquittal and finally all agreed on not guilty.Also some people like his music and some don't.

The only people who ever thought he was guilty were ugly women, gay dudes, closeted gay dudes, and people who've been molested (who assume EVERYONE'S been molested0.

The rest of us asked about the evidence, or saw the tape.

I saw the tape.

Not only was it NOT him, it wasn't 'her', because the girl in that tape was WAAAAAAY older than 13. Probably 20 or so.

But go ahead, shout your stupid crap some more.

You owe this man an apology.

Hey,

Can't a MAN have a spiritual meaningful relationship with their own Godchild. What's wrong with you people, anyway?
(sarcasm intentional) No race here, just a cultural difference.

They can take pictures of licence plates (allegedly) from space. There are microscopes that can
almost see at the atomic level, but they do not have a computer program that can clear up an
out of focus tape? Come on! The prosecution failed miserably (if he was guilty).

let's call it they
we really see it;

the highest and best use of a person is
the joy and pleasure they bring to others.

in a lifetime, millions will
have enjoyed his music.

whereas about 100 men would have
slept with this girl and 5 called her mom.

let's call a spade a spade.

he will will pay more taxes than this
girl will ever make in a lifetime.

so in essence, he's worth more to
this world than she will ever be.

period.

everyone of you with something bad to say can kiss a monkeys ass and go get your facts straight before blurting out your racist and 1800's comments.THE JURORS did their job and that is what they have to say with the facts they were submitted.
