Marathon Investigation

at Jackson Home

3/3/2010 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services conducted a marathon investigation yesterday at the Jackson family compound in Encino -- trying to figure out what exactly happened with a stun gun on the property.

Marathon Investigation at Jackson Home
DCFS social workers arrived at 4 PM yesterday and left at around 10:30 PM -- 6 1/2 hours later.

As we first reported, DCFS showed up the night before after receiving a tip that Jermaine Jackson's 13-year-old son, Jaafar, was playing with a stun gun on the second floor of the residence.

Sources tell us the social workers are interviewing all of the children in the house -- including Michael Jackson's 3 kids -- along with other family members and staff. We're told DCFS is taking the investigation very seriously and the plan yesterday was to come back today as well.

Sources say some of the individual interviews have taken a long time and there is a lot of tension on the property.

We've learned there's a conflict among people who live and work at the property. We know some members of the staff will tell DCFS that the stun gun was there for several days, before a member of security went upstairs and allegedly found Jaafar and other kids playing with the gun and pointing it at Michael's sons Blanket and Prince.

 Michael Jackson and kidsKatherine Jackson's lawyer, Adam Streisand, insists Blanket and Prince were never in the room with the gun and that Jaafar was playing with the gun for a few minutes -- not days -- before it was confiscated.

Some members of the staff will tell DCFS there is a second stun gun on the property. Streisand says that is absolutely not true.

Okay, so they had an incident at the compound that involved the children. They're kids and kids will be kids. Get a grip people. No one was hurt and no one had any danger of being hurt. If the stun gun had gone off and stunned one of them, at best their hair would've stood on end for the rest of the day or night. Come on people, get a grip. As for those children being any blood relation to Michael Jackson, I just look this stupid. I'm really not as stupid or gullable as Michael Jackson would've believed me to be. Nothing about any of those children says Jackson, Michael Jackson, African American, talent, nothing!!! Not one thing. Go for it Katherine, throw that whore out on her lazy ass! What kind of man steals his brother's woman and then marries her and lives in the family home with her? What kind of woman does that? The REAL victim in ALL of this is not Michael, his adopted children, Jdermaine, his half and halfs, none of them! The REAL victim is Randy Jackson plain and simple. Hey Randy, how funny is all of this? Kinda makes the pain ease up a little doesn't it?
