Armed Cops

at Jackson Estate

for Burglary Call

3/6/2010 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Armed LAPD officers swarmed around the Jackson Estate tonight on foot and in the air, but it turned out to be much ado about nothing -- the perfect ending to a crazy week at the Encino home.

Jackson
Around 9:00 PM PT, at least five officers entered through the front gate of the compound with shotguns drawn -- while an LAPD chopper circled overhead. Cops tell us they were responding to a burglary in progress call. 

But everything was fine once they got on the grounds. We're told the emergency call -- which came from outside the house -- was a false alarm.

No word on exactly which Jacksons were home during the raid.

L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services investigators have been at the Jackson home all week over that whole stun gun thing with Jermaine's son Jaafar.

Sounds fishy to me...I'm sure it's about getting rid of any/all other devices (taser guns, etc) they shouldn't have in their home. I don't know what the fascination is with this family, I'm sick and tired of reading about them in the press.

They were in it for the money    

Ms Mojo is saying the truth. When the Jackson family 1st moved in to their home, they were what you'd call 'green'. They were never snotty or snobby, in fact for years you'd see Mrs. Jackson always going out to shop and she would take the 2 girls and Michael with her, it didn't matter if it was up to the corner market(Gelson's) or down to Sears(the only big dept. store in the area at the time). Their home was tastefully decorated and comfortable. When we had the SFV earthquake in 1971, parts of Havenhurst were destroyed as were some of our homes, we all came out and this is how we formed our neighborhood freindships with the Jacksons. the fans used to come by and yes, they were allowed in for a little visit and yes Michael and his brothers would come out to the street and play with other neighbor children. Mrs. Jackson's guards were actually hired through her association with the Witnesses, the 2 nice gentlemen I spoke of, one did double duty as her driver after she had her strokes. I do not see these 2 men anymore, they were replaced by a group of guards that are more like prison guards, very serious men that do not talk too much. From 1971 until around 1996 things were pretty normal at Havenhurst. Yes, the security screen is forever closed now, used to be if the Jacksons were home, they'd come to the gate sometimes and sign autographs and pose for pictures for the fans who showed up; the bar b ques, sometimes we'd do the neighborhood potluck like normal people would do. Joe used to not trust the neighbors, he honestly thought since they were the only black family on the block at the time, that we would snub them but they found out different. If someone had a pool party, they'd be invited, if we were out for our morning walks with our dogs, we stand and chat. All in all, I wouldn't judge mother and father Jackson too harshly, they are actually very good and nice people. Joe was like a drill sargent sometimes, but thats if the boys got out of hand, but never noticed any form of cruelty to anyone in the home, except when his eyes wandered and it would be Mrs J who'd wallop him. See, they thought they had to change to become the royalty they eventually became and that's why Joe was the way he was sometimes-he just tried too hard to become something he wasn't, but in all honesty, we just liked them and enjoyed them as our neighbors. Used to be -there were 5 ladies my mom included that were real close and had coffee klatches 2 times a week and Mrs. J. was always invited and she would partake, yes, she did speak of her religion and leave the little magazines, but the ladies talked of children, shopping, just normal life things. Doesn't happen anymore since Mr. Michael passed away. I'm a bit older than Mr. Michael, by 10 years, but I remember him being a very shy and worried little child. He got along with people just fine, was very sweet. He would laugh,he loved to laugh and make fun, but something in his eyes will always haunt me, such sadness. Guess it was no fun to be 10 or 12 and have such a heavy burden placed on little shoulders. I do know, Mr. and Mrs Jackson have not had one day of peace since their son died. we have never seen so many papparazzi on our street and so much confusion. I live catty wampas across the street from Havenhurst and many times I've had to shoo off media hounds parking on my driveway, my gate has been dinged so often I had to replace it 2 times in 9 months, my ivy has been trampled on, trash in the front yard, but I can't blame the Jackson family for this, not the fans either. It's the ones with those cameras that want some scoop story. When the reports first came that Mr. Michael had died, about 10 neighbors were constantly bothered at all hours of the day and night, many business cards left in our mailboxes for 'stories' and they'd pay. I don't think any of us ever took up anyone on the offers. Their sons and daughters may have been a huge influence on music, but to us, they were another family who happened to be our neighbors. We all worked so it was your basic every day neighborhood. I just remembered a funny story about Mr. Michael. Almost every Halloween, if the boys were home, they'd come out to trick and treat. They did not have costumes, but wanted candy -Mr. Michael would stuff those little candy bars in his pants pockets and tear open a few on the porch and shove them into his mouth. the next morning, we all knew who left the discarded wrappers along the driveways and street, Mr. Michael. He'd eat what he got on his way home from Halloweening.

This situation regarding The Jackson Compound and what does or does not go on, has gone to far. TMZ has milked it for everything it can. PLEASE! move on only report significant events or news like what will happen in April when Dr. Murray is scheduled back in court. The children deserve peace and quiet, you realize they dislike the media already because of all the negative attention. The Paps are making there grandmothers life a living hell, remember they love her dearly and in there young lives already dislike the negative media!!!

It is not meant for the three children to live with the jacksons, same as it wasn't meant for Michael to be with them. God has other plans.

The best thing to do for those kids is to tell the truth about their parentage. If the Jacksons admit that he was not their father, people will lose interest in them. They are not doing these kids any favors by lying about who their real father is. And don't try to BS me and tell me he was their BIO father. Give it a rest. Michael Jackson was a liar. People are expecting them to carry some kind of torch, and have inherited some kind of great talent, which is impossible because he was NOT their BIO father. If they tell the truth, they will be seen as ordinary kids and people will finally leave them alone. Second thing they need to do is get rid of the security guards and the body guards. They are acting like these children are royalty and they are NOT. Even some royal children get less guards than they do. They are overhyping the importance of those children. Let them go and live with their mother on her horse farm and get them away from the Jackson family. They are still young and they will adapt to Debbie Rowe. The longer they stay with the Jacksons, the worse off they will be. Let them go to school with regular kids and get them away from that family. Their rightful place is with their mother

I agree with the above post, but you forgot one thing. The Jackson family are a bunch of money sucking leeches who will hang on those children for dear life. They will never let them go because they are too concerned with their meal tickets. As soon as Michael died, his mother was in court trying to get the kids, not for their sakes, but because she wanted to make sure that she would get the money. She is a Jehovah Witness, the church should be ashamed to associate with a liar like her. She is lying about those kids and they all know it. They know those kids are not their real family. Joe Jackson, Randy and Jermaine, all greedy. They have $$$$ in their eyes and nothing else. Debbie Rowe is Jewish and her children are therefore Jewish. The Jacksons do not like Jews. They are probably there brainwashing the children about their mother and everything else.

I SMELL A RAT !!!

Isn't it funny that there was a camera there to film the police arriving? Exclusive to this site as well - funny that. Don't tell me there is always a camera outside the Jackson home, because then there would also be footage of the child services investigators turning up.

Just saying....

Tiger's Help Sucks Too    

Oh yeah! If I call the cops for a suspected burglary, they send a helicopter. Right? Sure. Let the Jacksons hire a damn security crew and stop living their freaky lifestyle off the taxpayers' help.

People are saying to leave them alone. This site is to find out celeb buzz and info going on. If you think they should be left alone then don't come on the site, read the post and leave a comment.
