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.

Don't jump to conclusions. There was a toy gun in my house too where you could hear a click, but you couldn't shoot anything with it.

We don't know how serious this was - boys making a home action movie, or Jafar harassing his younger brother with a real gun. What we DO know is that someone in the house is either trying to make this look worse than it is, or seriously alarmed - in which case she/he should go to the police, not TMZ. That TMZ got the clip makes me distrust the "source".

Big Mouth Joe will TELL ALL    

TMZ...This is NOT even a story!! My brother when he was younger used to goof around with his friends all the time. They would play cops and robbers, wrestle and beat up on each other and smash their big wheels into each other My son too...when he was younger he had nerf dart guns that they would shoot at each other and NO NONE of them turned out to be a serial killer...I think it was called "having fun"!!!! GEEZ and why does TMZ have a VIDEO anyway???

" TMZ decided not to post the video" looooool
Why?! the video is a proof that this incident happened. You don't show us the proofs, so i have to say that the article is just speculation! Nothing more than that!Pure speculation.

Wow, a kid playing cops and robbers! Crucify him!/sarcasm. Hey, Levin, why don't you admit who gave you video out of that kid's house? I hope they are well compensated for violating these kids' privacy and exploiting them for financial gain. Bet you can't wait til they're legal so you your "inside source" can get a money shot.

TMZ, won't show video b/c their isn't one and all heresay or it sounds better written and everyone can use their imagination and make it out to a horrible thing, wtvr... it's only boys playing and that's that, I bet!

So is this silly article because Jermaine dissed you yesterday when you were stalking his children? Bitter much?

Sorry, Harvey but boys have been playing cops and robbers for ages, Why write a story about it. You guys are desperate to stay relevant with the Jacksons.

Grace still selling you stories? How much did you pay for the video?

TMZ...If you're mad at Jermaine for what he said about you then you should dig up some old re-hashed crap about him and his brother marrying the same woman,or play the old recording where he dissed Michael in a song...anything but going after children! Yeah you didn't show the video and didn't mention whether it was a real gun or not because you wanted people to speculate! We are not all stupid! Please stop it. You claim to have morals but I don't see it. And if you saw something inappropriate, then why don't YOU report it to DCFS? And while you're at it let's go to every home, school, playground and daycare and bust all the little boys ages 2 and up for rough-housing and playing cops and robbers!

Ths issue is called parenting. The adults in that house don't properly supervise the children, nor do they set boundaries. everything should have a limit. I have teenagers, and we know many people in the same situation, it's one thing to play and another to be violent in your play. Do you guys who think this is normal behaviour keep handcuffs in the house as well???
I agree that TMZ should turn the tape to authorities especially since DCSF is still reviewing the case.
