The gate is closed.... they're going to be late...

THE GATE IS OPEN!!

Several cars have entered the compound -- no Phantoms though ... yet.

The Jackson family is gathering at their Encino home -- where five Rolls Royce Phantoms are expected to pick them up and drive them to Michael's burial at Forest Lawn.

Finally! It's about damn time Michael gets buried. It's unsanitary to have a dead body stored in some fridge for 2 months!!

Since my tax dollars are paying for that cop...could you ask him to pick up some litter rather than just standing there pretending he's Erik Estrada?

Hey! Here's an idea, how about we leave them alone and quit pointing cameras at them while they try to bury Michael?

Are they going to show the funeral or just the family leaving?
Yeah, it's pretty sad they haven't buried him yet. It's also SOOO surreal that he's dead, I'm still expecting him to jump out of the casket and do the moon walk on top of it.

Nobody's taxes are paying. The police are one of the expenses that the family asked the estate to pay.
