Stun Gun Caper -- Supermarket Accomplice!

3/3/2010 5:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So how does a 13-year-old boy score a stun gun? It's as easy as buying groceries.

Jaafar Jackson
TMZ has learned Jaafar Jackson, Jermaine's precocious boy, found a serious loophole in his pursuit of the electronic weapon -- at an L.A. Ralphs supermarket.

Sources tell us Jaafar bought several gift cards from the market -- we're told either Visa or American Express. He then used the cards to purchase the weapon online.

Online sites that sell the weapon in question make prospective buyers declare they are 18 years of age or older.

So apparently, Jaafar figured out if he got a lawful credit card number, no one would be the wiser.

Smart kid.

Something is not right here. If the stun-gun company shipped this product, it should have required an adult signature upon delivery. It's possible that someone at the Jackson home signed for the package without knowing what was inside but you would think that their security would be inspecting any and all packages considering the increased publicity around the Jackson family.

All of this comes down to being rich and famous - that leads to some getting away with MURDER! Too many loopholes in the system! I would blame it on the credit card companies, stores and the biasness towards celebrities.

How about giving this boy some rest huh?

After all, he is only 13, and his name in this incident should never have been revealed!

TMZ, whoever your source is, morals apparently are non-existing! Keep names and faces of CHILDREN out of your news feeds. Please!

Why is TMZ posting this minors face on their website as if he has been tried as an adult and found guilty of a crime. This is outrageous. The stalking of children continues. Maybe DCFS could investigate TMZ!

This shows you how smart and clever kids can be. Shame on the company for allowing this to happen in the first place. They need to change their procedure and policy to buy such a weapon. Parents, are you paying attention to this story? It could easily happen to your child.

Oh My Goodness    

I'm sure he probably has already used this stun gun on little Blanket a few times already.

They are not going to tell the truth.

This is so typical!

Instead of even trying to find a way to get any kind of weapons out of society, you start blaming a child and their parents and their color...

America, you have issues! REAL issues! Instead you love to gossip and trash talk about people you have never met, have never talked to...

Check on your neighbors, those are the real freaks! Not the people you see here on those stupid sites that spread lies and half-truths!

Why do you think so many Americans that can afford it rather move to Europe or elsewhere?

This country is full of sickos! And it sure ain't the Jacksons! It's YOU! How many children have brought real guns to school and have killed others? Are you still talking about that? NO! But hey, another story about the Jacksons, let's spend some time gossiping about them!

You all are disgusting!

And to "dd". How many years ago have you met Jermaine for the last time? Obviously, he has changed. You seem stuck in the 70's. I pity you. Truly!

17. You should not be posting the child on here. It could traumatize him.
