Michael Jackson Filipino Inmates Strike Again

1/25/2010 4:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With all the time in the world on their hands, the inmates of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines have learned another Michael Jackson routine ... with some help.



Jackson's long-time choreographer Travis Payne, with dancers Daniel Celebre and Dres Reid, taught the inmates routines from "This Is It."

It's just how Michael would have wanted it.

Don't you guys know that Filipino prisons are hellholes? And that these guys are threatened with beatings and food deprivation if they don't want to participate in this kind of dancing? And if they mess up a step, more of the same. THAT'S why they are so good. It's not a reward; it's entertainment for the guards.

I'm sure Michael would be swelled with pride if he could see how well these people did and how much everyone loves him. It brought tears to my eyes. I hope everyone in the world has Joy, Peace and it's all for L.O.V.E. in their lives.

Try to reach a close friend or family member, preferably in person, for a nice long chat. You need to unburden yourself somewhat, though it shouldn't end up being a festival of tears.

What are we little kids prison should not be for punishment but a place to help people get well mentally and rehabilitate them so they can come back and be apart of what we call society. Not to punish them and dehumanize them as much as we can to scare them as much as we can not to do bad? lol I mean common who do we think we are that people owe us there humiliation and pain for what we deem wrong. It is Time to help each other stand up not be trying to drown those who don't know or have forgot how to swim in this life.
