Jaafar Jackson -- Gunnin' for His Lil Bro

3/17/2010 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson and her people insist the incident involving Jermaine Jackson's son, Jaafar, and the stun gun was an isolated event -- but TMZ has obtained a home movie that shows Jaafar is no stranger to playing with guns.

Jaafar, Jermaine, Jermajesty Jackson

The scene -- which appears to have been shot several months ago -- begins with Jaafar (left) barging into Jermajesty's room, Airsoft gun drawn, and then ordering his little brother to get on the ground. Jaafar pushes Jermajesty to the ground, pretends to pistol-whip him, handcuffs him and then gives the youngster an incomplete version of his Miranda rights.

Jaafar then tells his brother, "Don't move or I'll bust your head open."

Jaafar then cocks the gun, points it to Jermajesty's head, pulls the trigger and you hear the click. Jermajesty plays dead and Jaafar drags him by the leg out of the room.

TMZ decided not to post the video.

As for the stun gun incident, sources tell TMZ Jaafar pointed the weapon at two of Michael Jackson's kids -- Blanket and Prince -- but the family insists the two kids weren't even in the same room.

Our sources say the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are still reviewing the stun gun incident.

This kid could be headed for trouble. "Playing" isn't always just playing.

14. When we played cops 'n robbers as kids we never used REAL GUNS. MJ's three kids are in serious danger in that house, why is this acceptable?

At what point in the article does it say it was a real gun??? It's just brothers playing cops and robbers, how is this news? And in the other video Jaafar is obviously fake-punching (or fake-slapping, hard to tell) Jermajesty as the sound of the hit happens a fraction before when the hit would make contact if it were real. Also Jermajesty doesn't cry out or anything.

They are CHILDREN!! Stop exploiting them and reporting on them! It is none of anybody's business what they do just because their last name is Jackson. What their dad does, as a public person, that should be your topic here. Talking about a 13 year old and a 8 year old as if they did something wrong! They are children, they play. They are BOYS and sometimes it gets rough. So what, show me one family where the kids don't pretend to be a cop and a criminal! I played the same games 30 years ago! And no one sent authorities to my home!

Get a grip yall, the Jacksons are no different than your neighbors down the street!

TMZ, why don't you report on a murderer on the lose. Sony signing a deal with the Estate that should protect Michael's interests? Michael HATED Sony! Those are topics you should bring up for discussion, not some minors that PLAY!

For the people who say such terrible things about Michael and his family...
The Jacksons are people just like us. They eat, go to the toilet, shop, work etc. Those who say horrible things about Michael, who was such a beautiful person, who did many many good things for other people.. haven,t learned anything from what Michael wanted the world to know.. You have to look at yourself before you say anything about another person. Are the Jacksons such strange people? No. They are just people, let them be. Because they are famous that,s no reason to say a lot of angry things about them. Look around... how many people are really crazy? The people who murder children or adults, the people who are hurting humans or animals, the people who say that black people are less then white people.. make a list, there are a lot of crazy people on this planet.. but Michael was not one of them, his children are not one of them, and his brothers and sisters are not one of them. His mother lost a son. I mis Michael every day, i have learned a lot of good things from him,to give other people a second chance, to have faith in all i do, no mather what other people say. To do something good for someone else without wanting something for it in return. So look at yourselve before you say something about Michael and his family, nobody is perfect!

Exactly! If MJ had wanted to go back to Sony he would have got them onboard for the This Is It concerts. (I'm just talking about the planned concerts before he died, not the movie. I'm sure he was spinning in his grave about Sony buying the rights to that but now he must be performing an entire dance routine in his grave over the new deal!!)

I SAY PUT SOMEBODY IN CHARGE OF THE FINANCES THAT WILL MAKE SURE THAT EVERY LAST PENNY ALL GOES TO WACKO JACKOS' CHILDREN AND NOT THE VULTURES!!!

TMZ decided they shouldn't show this video, but decided it is okay to post Corey, Michael, and Brittany's 911 calls. HHHHMMM that sounds just wrong to me. RIP Michael, Corey, and Brittany TMZ sucks

MJ blamed Sony but then had to live with the fact that
his secretive behavior, unhealthy lifestyle, crying about no childhoods, his drag queen urge & mindless spending for strangers stopped millions of fans from buying albums. It all ended with his destruction. Jermaine's family is no less troubled. Highly devilish people.

Well...the question that must be answered is this kids playing cowboys & indians, good guy/bad, cops and robbers or is it the media blowing it out of proportion and making something out of nothing because of who they are? When I was a kid all the kids played those games and none that I know are serial killers.

Is this all that the media has to do is get involved in a family matter?

Typical TMZ crap!

Hey TMZ, put up or shut up. I don't believe it till I see it on tape.

Also, What's your take on the syringe story that is popping up on google? MJ's syringe that Murray used (allegedly) to administer the fatal dose of propofol is going up for auction supposedly in Las Vegas. I think the story is B.S. There is no way that LAPD could be that incompetent to allow this syringe to go missing. Isn't it needed for the trial to be entered as EVIDENCE?

TMZ if this story is true you need to give that tape to DCFS because it sounds like this boy is E.D. I'm not kidding. He may need to be in a residential program or something.
