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.

94. 63. Black kids threatening white kids with a weapon? What a shock.

MJ's kids need to be taken out of there, Katherine has no control whatsoever with Jerlame's thugs.

@just the facts. You have no point! what does the prison population have to do with the jacksons. Are you saying no white kids order stun guns or take guns to school. You go on to generalise that black kids are being raised by drug addict and alcholics. well so are white kids. By the way here is a statistic for you 70% of child molesters and rapists are white men. If you were oppressed all your life and denied job opportunities

based on your skin colour a lot of your types would be in jail too.

WOW...FOR ONCE I'M GLAD MICHAEL JACKSONS KIDS ARENT BLACK...WHEW...COULD YOU IMAGINE HOW MANY BLACK SO AND SO'S THEY WOULD BE IF THEY WERENT WHITE??? AND I THINK ITS FUNNY HOW THERE ARENT ANY POSTS REFERRING TO THEIR RACE...I MEAN REALLY? IF A BLACK STARS MIXED OR FULLY BLACK KIDS WERE BEING INVESTIGATED BY CPS...LAWDY LAWDY...THE SLURS WOULD BE FLYING....HMMM...SEE HOW THE WORLD CHOOSES TO ACCEPT AND DENY AT THE SAME TIME? OH AND OVER TIME...BE SURE THAT ONE THEY CALL BLANKET....THE BLACK ONE...WILL BE REFERRED TO AS SUCH LATER ON. THIS IS A BIG OLE MESS. I WONDER IF THE WHITE CHILDREN REALLY DO TARGET OR SUBTLY ABUSE BLANKET...IT WOULD ONLY MAKE SENSE AND FOLLOW THE GENERAL RULE. BUT MAYBE IM WRONG AND WELL ALL JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE BOOKS TO START POURING OUT FROM ARNIE KLEIN JR, AND DEBBIE ROWE JR....AND THEN BLANKET HIMSELF.

An 80 year old woman left to supervise and raise the children of 3 of her sons. 2 of those sons are alive and able. Remove those children to the care of their fathers immediately. There is a pack mentality going on. The stories of "entitled" kids committing felonious crimes are staggering. That is the case here. Not black/white. Not rich/poor. When you ignore your kids, cover up for them, ply them with "stuff" to cover your neglect, you get thugs. "Thug" is not a color term, it is a behavior term.
NONE of the children in that house are getting the individual care and attention they need. Their fame can be a tool to highlight a problem that plagues our country. Child neglect.

79. This is all so sad. The Jacksons being targeted again why do people have to talk about race with all MJ articles? Please remember that it was a white woman who sold her children to a black man.

And a black man who BOUGHT two children from a white woman. I don't like double standards when it comes to Michael and Debbie Rowe.
As for the rest, I agree with you that race is not the point here. All these racist comments are very tiresome and uncalled for.

@randy. White people are the biggest hypocrites no one cares what kind of moral values you have to pass on because you have none. Wall street pimps, reality wh.or.es , closet gay politicians. f you all. By the way do you have a job? why are you here commenting? Oh I forgot only blacks are unemployed and lazy.

74. I'll bet Prince or Paris were frightened and called police, bet we never hear the 911 call. How sad for those 3 kids to be living in fear every day in that house,

Oh please. I hardly think it is that bad. Besides, Blanket is very resilient. Let's not forget that he was dangled over a 10th floor balcony as a toddler by his own father, and he got over that just fine. Ripping the kids away from Katherine and Hayvenhurst at this point is about the worst thing that could ever happen. Not only will it probably kill Katherine literally, but the kids will have to suffer yet another loss. It's the last thing Michael would want. Discipline Jaffar or make him go live with Jermaine for a while.

Hmm. Prince (Blanket) may not have been involved in all of this. But I wonder if Blanket is being used so that his biological mother can step forward?

I wish that kid had just tasered him and got it over with, then we wouldn't have to read 4 stories about an investigation about a 13 year old... And yes, I've been tased... Licking the 9-volt is more painful. Don't ask...

Grace has no conection to these children the court would never remove them from Katherine and give them to Grace. I think she is just as much part of the problem. She is the Nanny not mother. They have a biological mother who should step forward and start asking questions??? Michael clearly wanted them raised Jackson, after all its in the will. I work for Social Services and they do not remove kids that easily they try to work with the family and genetics do mean a lot. Being raised by there grandmother is a good thing. Someone maybe leaving but its not going to be MJ3.
