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.

Come on, Tom..(I'm assuming you are white), but I remember playing these same games as a kid and I'm white. What difference does color matter when kids are playing, other than if you're a racist, I see nothing different whatsoever. That was uncalled for.


Well said Ben, and Why TMZ is so excited about this story? why they dissecting thoses kids games? they are just kids playing roles and acting out what they saw in films , videos games, playstation....!

Saying "this is just boys playing rough" doesn't cut it. Not when you're talking about stun guns and real guns. What is wrong with the people in this family? Why are Jermain's kids living at the Grandmother's house? This is not a case of putting the fun in dysfunctional - it's a case of people who lack parenting skills taking care of too many children and the children being unsupervised. Jermain needs to find out what's really going on with his son before the family has to come up with another "story" about a real tragedy that has happened. As always, make up an excuse for anything negative. A whole family living in denial. Gross.

TMZ, the tape should have been sent to DCFS before informing the media. we can't do anything about the situation. If you guys know something and have the proof, act now.
Jafar is a future convict, guns are the beginning, drugs will be next.

It is obvious that TMZ/Harvey won't show the video because of some legal issue. There's probably a court order for it or something and they have to hand it over to DCFS or family court. If they post that video they could be liable. Otherwise it would be up I would wager.

I obviousy haven't seen the clips, but now imagine someone making a positive narrative about it. Look, two kids playing with a toy gun, having fun, look what a happy home!

You could just as well do that, right? How many of you out there have home movies of kids playing cop and robbery?

And since someone filmed it - was that a grownup, maybe the very one later leaking the clip, cheering on the boys? What do we know. Or was it stolen from a computer?

Katherine Jackson needs to have a meeting in her house and do something about this "source".

How in the world did you guys get your hands on a private home video? You guys must have Grace Rwaramba on your pay role. No you won't post it for fear the Jackson's will sue you for violating those kids privacy and rights.

Wow! So much hate and racism. Why do people have to be so unkind? They must feel terrible about themselves to talk about others in such a way. And what kid, regardless of race or color, hasn't played cops before?! It's called being a NORMAL boy!!!

They won't post the video but they'll post a 911 call of a Mother pleading for help to come to her probably already dead Son!!!! I'd rather see the video of this jacked up family then hear that call.

It clear Jaafar needs some form of counselling. Jermaine QUIT trying to be MJ and raise your children who who are trying to get your ATTENTION. Your kids need your LOVE and SUPPORT Jermaine.

Jaafar could have a BRIGHT future in the acting profession. If Jaafar's skills/energy is channelled in a POSITIVE way. Why not send Jaffar to acting classes Jermaine.

STEP UP JERMAINE, BE A LOVING FATHER TO YOUR CHILDREN!

59. 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!

IF TMZ went this far they might as well let the DCFS now about the video, and uncover the source. What can happen is that the Jackos will find out who that person is and the mole will have to be replaced...
It is clear as daylight that MJs children can't live in that house, things happen behind close doors, and it is not safe. It was very strange how Grace wanted to be like Katherine jackson and so nicely made her way through, it's almost sounded like a plan she always had to nail someone in that family. Dangerous!

well i dont see in the story where it is saying jaafar was yeilding a real gun!!! he was playing cops with his brother, kids do that all the time, and believe it has nothing to do with color. my son plays with the neighborhood kids the same and half the time there is no gun its a stick or whatever they can find. i choose not to buy guns (play or real ones) to be brought into my home so they find sticks or something to substitute it for, still the same no difference than playing cops and robbers or indians back in the day!!!!its just the jacksons and of course its going to be blown way out of control!!! now if jaafar was causing bodily harm to the boy they need to absolutley step in and do something!!!!DAD SHOULD BE THE ONE TO TAKE CARE OF HIS KIDS NOT HIS MOTHER!!! JERMAINE STEP UP AND BE A MAN FOR ONCE!!!sue from tampa
