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.

The Man lyrics



There's a man,
Who plays the game of life so well,
Oo, there's such a man,
His thoughts you can never tell.
Oo, and it's just the way he thought it would be,
'Cause the day has come for him to be free,
Then he laughs, he kicks, then rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive and I'm here forever,
This is the man.

And it's just the way he thought it would be,
'Cause the day has come for him to be free,
Then he laughs, he kicks and rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive and I'm here forever,
This is the man.

There's a man,
Ev'rybody thought they knew,
Oo, there's such a man,
He's not like me and you.
Oo, and it's just the way she thought it would be,
And he says, "something has happened to me."
Then he laughs, he kicks and rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive and I'm here forever,
This is the man.

And it's just the way he thought it would be,
'Cause the day has come for him to be free,
And he laughs, he kicks and rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive and I'm here forever,
This is the man.

Did you know,
This man can do anything?
Oo, there's such a man,
I wish that we could bring.
Oo, and it's just the way he thought it would be,
'Cause the day has come for him to be free,
Then he laughs, he kicks and rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive and I'm here forever,
This is the man.

And it's just the way he thought it would be,
'Cause the day has come for him to be free,
And he laughs, he kicks and rolls up his sleeves,
I'm alive, hoo! And I'm here forever,
This is the man.

This is the man, oh yeah, oh yeah,
This is the man,
This is the man, this is the man, this is the man.

This is the man.

Why the hell doesn't Jermaine raise his own damn kids at his own damn house?? What a deadbeat!! He & his goofy looking wife are apparently too busy "traveling" all over trying to get publicity. He needs to just give up. The series on A&E showed that he just doesn't want to do the hard work that it takes to be make music. But, that's another story. It would be horrible for Michael's kids to be taken from there because of Jermaine's disrespectful, delinquent little brat!!

There's always drama within the Jackson household. Why are Jermaine's kids living there? Can't he put a roof over his own children's heads or is it easier to just let late Michael's estate take care of it? Meanwhile, don't count on DHS getting the truth from anyone in that house and/or its employees. Can you say Dr. Murray? Meantime, they're all living like kings & queens on the very home that Jackson paid for. Jermaine needs to leave show biz and never show plastic face anywhere. Children and tasers and no supervision - oh my! Poor Michael just rolled over for the first time. Let Diana Ross have those kids. At best, she gave her children a proper upbringing.

Give MJ's kids to Debbie Rowe and the dermatologist to raise. They'd be better off.

Well, that does it. The lawyer explained that there is only one stun gun and that jackal was only playing with it for a few minutes outside. A lawyer wouldn't lie would they?

It is not possible to blow anything the crazy Jackson family does out of proportion. They are a bunch of parasitic has-beens who's useful time on earth ended long ago. They will continue to by dysfunctional and provide fodder for the media. If not for negative publicity, they would have no publicity at all.

Question: How can a 13 year old even ORDER and PAY for something like that? Isn't it a weapon? And a company delivers this without any doubt to anyone that orders, no matter how old that person is??? LOOOOOOOOOOOOL, only in America!

Let me guess, what is next? Authorities will say MJ's kids are no longer safe there. And they will be taken away from Katherine? To live somewhere else? With someone else? LIKE DADDY???

LOOOOOOOOOOL this is too funny. HAHAHAHAHA

Some of you people are just plain stupid Debbie Rowe cannot get the kids because she sold them in the first place what kind of mother does that and further more what would happen to Blanket? he is not her kid. The children needs to stay together with their grandma what needs to happen is for Jermaine to get his kids out of there. Katherine is only responsible for raising Micheal's kids because he is dead. Last time I checked Jermaine was alive and well and publicity wh.&ring.

I actually believe the lawyer than random 'sources', the lawyer would have to be honest considering that fact the child welfare are interviewing the family and what is released to the public must match the actual story.

Putting that aside i think that although the kids are having a tough time with the loss of their father and all, they have learnt to live with it with the love and support of Katherine Jackson along with the rest of the family. However i do think the kids should live apart from the rest of the cousins because Mj raised them in a different way to how Jermaine has been raising his kids. MJs kids are too innocent for such acts and i hope they dont get influenced by their crazy cousins

It scares me to think that Michael´s children are not being treated as did his father or at least as much similar, i think the responsibility in this case is NOT of the children, is again an act of IRRESPONSIBLE ADULTS.

THANK YOU MICHAEL!
