OOWEEE    

IF YOU REALLLLY CARE ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON THEN...YOU WILL file a written annonymous or non-annonymous complaint of PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT AGAINST THE LOS ANGELES DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICES ET AL..with the STATE OF CALIFORNIA CHIEF TRIAL COUNSEL/ATTORNEY REGISTRATION AND DISCIPLINARY COMMISSION..FOR THE failure to conduct a homicide investigation free of political influences and what is called the "appearance of improprieties". Michael Jacksons Autopsy Report has a different report of Jacksons weight and time of death, which is one of my issues that would and could support a Charge of Homicide Murder 1, over a Charge of Involuntary Homicide...in which Dr. Murray will only end up with Probation. And by the way.....The Jackson Family had the Resources to prevent all this bs.....Remember, an Attorney was hired the day Michael Jackson died, not to have an Attorneys Investigators making sure Michael Jacksons crime scene was locked down...but to file bs motions to contest a no contest Will......The Jackson Family is also responsible for a botched up murder investigation and they should not have the sympathy of Michaels Fans.

No matter how lame this guy's dunk is gonna be, he's still gonna win. He's gonna get the crowd and judges so hyped up... it's an automatic win. What judge is not gonna give him a 10? Everyone in the NBA loves MJ......Shannon Brown is badass Go Lakers!!! ... but MJ is "badder" lol. With that said, I placed a future bet on this dude to win.

The NBA All-Star game is in Arlington! Not Dallas! The poor people of Arlington are giving an arm and a leg to have that stadium in their city and don't get ANY credit!

ARLINGTON!!!!
