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.

Give the house and the kids to Grace. Let the rest of them all go live with Jermaine.

Grace called them. She is a mother bear. She isn't going to let anything happen to those kids. Even if she has to get in a fistfight with Rebbe.

When Michael did his will in 2002 he did not have a clue that all the other kids were going to be left in his mothers care. He was not even expecting to die while his children were young in the first place. It is a shame that Katherine can not say no towards any of her grand children, and she had no idea that Micheal would be dying as soon as he did either. It is a bad situation all around, she is trying to do the best she can.

#41. You're probably right that the stun gun was already used on one of the kids. That would explain how the DCFS really got involved in this matter. If Katherine had simply taken the stun gun away from Jaafar, that would not have insured the safety of the other children living in the household. I'm guessing one of the children told a teacher at school what had been happening and that teacher informed the DCFS. Many of the Jacksons' children are living with Katherine because they need her support and apparently she likes having them there.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it past 11 pm on a school night there in Ireland? Shouldn't you be in bed?

Where are the photos of DCFS arriving? TMZ has the inside story but no cameras to capture it? Same problem with nothing - no lawyers ever showing up at LA superior court. No cameras. LOL. Where is Streisand's actual statement? If he released a statement, why doesn't someone publish it? No, just tidbits of the "imaginary" statement reported by TMZ and everyone has picked up on it as truth. This is just too comical to even warrant comment actually.

So is this an international story about a "taser" stun gun? Don't think so – this is a "teaser" story about how the international community is about to be "stunned."

What a loser moron! How the h#ll do you know; when was the last time you had a one-on-one with Michael Jackson, a conversation with Kate, etc...

You people don't know a flying f@ck about this family, their lives, etc...

LOSERS! Talk about your own dysfunction...losers. You all jump on this all day long, can just imagine what your family lives are like.

Why are all these other kids and grown ups living in this house? Can't the grown up Jackson's even support thier own kids??? WHat a sad bunch of people. Michael would flip if he knew they were all in that house...around his children. Sounds like a bunch of spongers living off mom now that Michael is gone. Those grown Kids of Her's have no shame just like their blood sucking father ....Get a JOB !!

THIS YOUNG MAN IF HE DID THIS NEEDS HIS ASS SPANKED AND HIS PRIVILEGES TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM. HIS DAD NEEDS TO STOP GIVING HIM SO MUCH STUFF ESPECIALLY MONEY TO BUY CREDIT CARDS IF THIS IS WHAT THE YOUNG MAN USED IT FOR. ITS HARD TO BELIEVE IF THIS STORY IS TRUE BECAUSE EVERYTIME YOU TURN AROUND SOMEONE IS ACCUSING THE JACKSON'S OF SOMETHING. THANK GOD JAAFAR DIDN'T HURT NOBODY ELSE OR HIMSELF. SEEMS LIKE THIS CHILD NEEDS BETTER DISCIPLINE AND MORE LOVE FROM HIS PARENTS. HOPE THIS CHILD WILL LEARN FROM THIS AND NOT BUY ANOTHER STUN GUN OR ANY GUN AT ALL IF HE DID DO IT. JERMAINE NEEDS TO BE THERE MORE FOR HIS SON INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT MAKING MONEY OR HIS SINGING CAREER. THIS IS A SIGN THAT JAAFAR IS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO BE THERE FOR HIM. SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE WHO IS OLDER MIGHT HAVE PURCHASED THE STUN GUN AND THIS YOUNG MAN GOT A HOLD OF IT AND WANTED TO SEE WHAT IT WOULD DO. WE ALL DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN OR IF ANYTHING LIKE THIS HAPPENED. THIS COULD BE SOMEONE TRYING TO STIR TROUBLE UP FOR THE JACKSON'S LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO. I CANNOT SAY EITHER WAY BUT IF JAAFAR DID THAN LIKE I SAID BEFORE HE NEEDS HIS ASS SPANKED AND PRIVILEGES TAKEN AWAY UNTIL HE LEARNS WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG, BUT TO ME THIS IS ALL TMZ AND OTHERS TALKING AS USUAL. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING I HEAR OR READ UNLESS I SEE IT FOR MYSELF. IN FACT ITS NOT NONE OF THE PUBLIC'S BUSINESS ESPECIALLY IF THE FATHER AND GRANDMOTHER HAS TAKEN CARED OF THE SITUATION AND MAKES SURE JAAFAR IS PUNISHED FOR WHAT HE DID, AND MAKE SURE THE OTHER CHILDREN KNOW THAT THEY DON'T EVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS EITHER BY EXPLAINING THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS.
