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.

91. Again, this is why Michael wanted white children and didn't want his children around black kids. I do not blame him. Those poor kids are are in serious danger.

WOW!!! The racism on here is really shocking.

MJ's kids seem to be trying to lead a normal life with their extended family since Michael died, and that includes getting into scrapes with Jermaines children. That is how they will learn the 'people skills' which will equip them for life.

This whole affair is a storm in a teacup.
It is despicable that TMZ can feed this media frenzy against a 13 year old CHILD. It is obvious that TMZ is elaborating this story to supplement their 'slow-news' days.

Leave the kid alone. All kids do stupid things occassionally and I expect he has thoroughly learned his lesson.

Why are all those kids living with a 79 year old woman? Why isn't Jermaine taking care of his responsibilities? This family is nothing but a bunch of leeches. Jermaine should have been fixed after the first child since he cannot take care of his 8 rugrats. Children services need to recommend that someone other than Katherine take care of Michael's children. I feel sorry for them being surrounded by vermins. This is why Michael kept them away from the rest of the family. Children Services needs to remove them because it is obvious that Katherine is too OLD.

JERMAINE NEEDS TO STEP UP AND ACT LIKE A FATHER AND RASISE HIS OWN KIDS. INSTEAD OF TRAVELING THE COUNTRY WITH HIS WIFE ACT LIKE YOUR A DAD AND GET THEM OUT OF UOUR MOTHERS HOUSE. YOU ARE STILLTRYING TO LIVE OFF MICHAEL .TO BAD YOUR NOT A FATHER LIKE HE WAS. MICHAEL WAS A GREAT FATHER . SO TAKE YOUR BAD KIDS HOME AND RAISE THEM YOURSELF .YOUR SUCH A LOSER.

Interesting kid. Get him a movie deal fast, quick, and in a hurry. Money grubbing Jermaine should be cashing in on this kids talent.

Kevin -- Ponder this. A kid in our neighborhood was caught peeking into windows, and pulling a few other creepy pranks, and everyone said, "Oh, he's just a kid, leave him alone". Except my father said, "That kid is going to be big trouble one of these days". Fast forward eight years, and this same kid, now a man, was arrested for killing something like eight women. That is correct, he was a serial killer and is in prison to this day. I won't state his name, because, frankly, he might remember me and I value my life. The point being, that sometimes, how a child behaves in adolescence is an indicator of problems to come. Am I saying Jermaine's kid is going to be a serial killer? NO, OF COURSE NOT. What I am saying is don't ignore violent behavior, deal with it now, and get to the bottom of it. Ordering a stun gun off the Internet (secretly) and pointing it (a lethal weapon, especially if shot at small children whose systems could not handle that kind of voltage) is
serious business. The previous video that was posted showed this kid smacking his brother hard, up side the head. People die from 'minor' head injuries like that every day. This behavior is NOT okay. It's violent and needs to be stopped. The boy needs to be in counseling, imho.

Actions like this doesn't mean he is going to turn out bad, or he is doing badly.

The fact TMZ wont show this video either means that the video is less harmless than what TMZ is describing, or TMZ is full of Politically correct anti-gun nut sissies.

parents?    

Sounds like this kid needs some attention and an ass whoopin! His parents are obviously doing a crappy job, but I guess that makes sense since the Jackson kids had crappy parents too. This whole family is f'ed up. That's what happens when the wrong type of "people" have too much money.

It's the kind of name that will subject him to ridicule his entire life. If I had a name like that (and a father who abandoned me), I'd probably want to cause trouble too. Seriously.

93. JERMAJESTY??? What the F kind of name is that???

CPS is a horrible family destroying and children ruining bureaucratic cesspool of disgusting people who think they know better how to raise a child than its parents.

they take children from loving families and put them on a merry-go-round of foster families and chemical restraints until the children reach majority, then they are thrown in jail because they have no family support, are legal orphans, and are messed up in the head.

Seriously people....you can't take every little boy out their parents home for playing "cops and robbers". The county and states would be overcrowded with kids. Some of you need to come out of the glass houses you live in and quit being so immature and judgmental. This goes on in so many homes across America. The only difference is that it’s not the Jackson or any other family in the public eye.

Michael did not let his kids associate with the rest of the klan. They all have lived off him one way or another all of their lives. The Jackson Brothers are a bunch of loosers. Wikipedia them and you see failure, and infidelity run wild. Why are all of those kids living with their grandmother ?

To TMZ
Please show the video with the kids faces blurred. Jafaar is going to kill someone someday and I do not want it to be one of MJs kids. If Jaraar kills all 3, do the Jacksons get their inheritance?

#112 MJ's kids do not have a parent. And if Katherine was taking proper care of MJ3, this never would have happened.
