Terrorism Feared at Michael Jackson Trial

12/22/2009 3:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Terrorism Feared at Michael Jackson TrialAuthorities in the small California town where Michael Jackson stood trial for alleged molestation feared the venue might become a "soft target" for terrorists .. this according to docs just released by the FBI.

According to documents, Santa Maria police asked the FBI to get involved because the "worldwide media coverage" could prove irresistible to terror groups.

The FBI investigated and concluded there was no credible threat, but did note the presence of a "New Black Panther Party" member at Jackson's first court hearing.

The only "fear" they had was not enough of his deranged fans would show up to be killed along with him. MJ fans are as nuts as this child molesting drughead. Seeing his fans getting killed off isnt such a bad thing, is it?

Steve, why are you so negative about EVERYTHING? Why are you so sad? Please take a few minutes to work on yourself--you'll enjoy your life more.

All of this stuff certainly proves how desparate they were to GET MJ. And TMZ with the Black Panther presence!? There were a few KKK members there also; even some of them liked Michael. What the hell...

I love these 'JACKSON FBI FILES' tags TMZ is putting up in the corner of each of these articles. Funny, I hear the theme from 'Mission Impossible' playing in my head.
