Jackson Family Statement - Kids Are Happy

3/2/2010 10:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Jackson family has released a statement about the stun gun incident which triggered an investigation by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services.

According to the statement, issued by Katherine Jackson's lawyer Adam Streisand, Jermaine's 13-year-old son Jaafar ordered a gun online and it was delivered to the Jackson family home two weeks ago in Encino. The statement says the gun was a "taser." Our sources say it was a stun gun, and we have a picture of the type of gun on the site (see below).

Streisand says Jaafar opened the package alone in his bathroom and "tested it on a piece of paper." According to the statement, Mrs. Jackson and security heard the sound coming from the second floor and confiscated the "taser."

The statement goes on ... Katherine removed the "taser" from the house. As we reported, a stun gun was at the house last night when social workers from DCFS confiscated it.

Now here are some of the discrepancies: Streisand says there was only one gun. Sources tell us some of the employees on the property will tell DCFS there were two guns.

Streisand says neither Blanket nor Paris saw or heard the "taser." Sources tell us some of the employees will tell DCFS Jaafar was in the same room with Blanket and Paris and pointed a stun gun at them.

Streisand says, "All of the kids are happy, healthy and wonderful and that is Mrs. Jackson's only objective and concern."

Michael is turning over in his grave right now! He did everything he could to protect those three children and now they're surrounded by a bunch of hoodlums!

I'm just glad everyone is okay. Jermaine should learn how to take care of his kids or his ex wife should. Katherine can't watch all of them. Of course Paris, Prince, and Blanket would not be involved they were raised right. Stay strong Katherine, I love you!

TMZ how do you know it was truly a "stun gun"? Your "source" once again could be wrong! It wouldn't be the first time tmz was wrong and giving inaccutate information! Were any of the tmz employees in the house? Did any one of you see for yourselves the "stun gun" or taser? TMZ back off the Jackson family!

It will remain to be seen how anyone that grows up in that ZOO called Jacskon could ever become anything but self destructive.The kids will more than likely end up like most celeb kids. on the pavements from 8 stories, addicts, in jail in trouble. They are already using stun guns and Granny Jacko is lying to the press!

How does a 13 year old buy a stun gun online? He would need a credit card, right? WTF?
