So the "memorial" tomorrow morning is just a ruse to get people/press to stay away from Neverland - makes total sense.

Wow - the world is getting punked.



48. ******** BREAKING NEWS ************ MJ TO BE BURIED AT NEVERLAND RANCH ************

Anyone else happen to catch KCAL9s live web feed on the internet? Helicopter pilot was pissed at another helicotper for getting too close. Was worried that KCAL would be blamed. but he said this..."at least we only have two more days of this"... "tomorrow and neverland"... to which the camerman asks a question off the mic., we can't hear, but the response is "that's where they're gonna plant him."

If the family wanted privacy, they would have it.

Here we go with the hate comments again. What I really don't understand is, if you hate this man so much, why are you wasting your time on him? Doesn't make sense. Think you would just stay away unless you yourself have something wrong with you. Maybe you better see a therapist before this problem manifests itself. Could lead to something very bad...
Rest in peace, Michael, now you can finally sleep! Your fans will miss you. Thank goodness you left your legacy behind. You will always be immortal....

Leave the Jackson family their privacy. They have the public thing planned for tomorrow... leave them alone tonight. Their son/brother/father died for Pete's sake!

I am so amazed at the ugliness of these comments. Regardless of how you feel about Michael, his family does not deserve the pain some are trying to inflict upon them. Michael can't see your comments, he is dead. You are not hurting him, but you may be hurting a member of his family. Hopefully when you pass people will be more respectful to your families. God bless you all cause you obviously need it.

Bravo Jackson family ---- you got a bit of privacy - Prayers to the kids and Katherine!

I read a couple of versions thoughout the evening ...

Will the Jehova Witness bury the dead at night?
Iread that tonight would be closed casket at Forest Lawn...
They other thing being tossed around is MJ will be cremated and then he could rest at Neverland. I did see an interview in recent days that MJ did not want a casket (also said he did not want to die either) when they were looking at a mummy tomb in an antique type shop - so this may happen....who knows? At lease the kids will not get exploited here tonight ....by the cameras. They have a nice hearst driving up vid too....


RIP MJ .... its almost over

"Even though you are dead,I will always love you and may the Lord be with you and may you rest in peace and all of my love goes out to The Jackson Family and espically the kids and your mom because it really hurts when you die before your mother.Michael remember you are dead now and you don't have to worry about all that abuse and all those lies and stories that are not true.Now,you are with the Lord and he is going to let nothing happen to his child.I know it is hard to see children playing and you having to go to the recording studio.I guess people were jealous of you because you were famous and they weren't.I am 10 years old and I am old enough to know much about Michael Jackson and I am saved and Jesus is the final judge. (Rest In Peace - R.I.P Michael Jackson) we all love you and adore you !"

Poor guy. I never followed his career. I thought some of his music was pretty good but never understood the fanaticism. I even thought the accusations against him were probably true, although I didn't know too much about it.

But now hearing so much about him actually changed my opinion of him. I can see how someone who is of his background and personality could set himself up for such accusations while still being innocent. I guess it is possible he was guilty but now I see that as extremely, extremely unlikely. He interacted with so many children there's no way that every single parent would sell their kids out for money.

He really overstepped bounds trying to treat all kids as if they were his family when they were not, and this combined with his eccentric image was a recipe for being susceptible to accusations. I'm sure he viewed this as noble, but when kids do have their own family while they might have enjoyed his support it was definitely not worth the risk for him. He should have left his humanitarian efforts to more conventional things, which I know he also did.

I don't think that I'm the first person to draw this parallel but he really was a kind of Boo Radley.

These MJ haters make me sick. Like #63 said, why do you even come to the site and follow the news. Anyways, tricky move holding the ceremony tonight - nice one. Give one up for the Jacksons. I knew Miko Brando was being cagey on Larry King Live tonight - very cagey. LK picked up on it too, but didn't push him.
