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.

TMZ is so late on this story Radaronline.com was the first to report this...give me a break, all you do is chase the Jackson family around LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!!!Everyone is tired of this cheap shot. Kids do things everyday in this country, that are inappropriate. I feel this is retaliation because Jermaine said some bay things yesterday about TMZ.If TMZ can not handle the heat then get out of the pap business!!!!Don't bother attacking me either this website blows!!!!

Toy gun - videotaped beating his brother - stun gun - what is next? a video of him "playing" with a real gun? How do you think people who commit violence start out? And everybody looks back and says yeah he showed all these signs but no one ever did anything.

Ii is none of my business if he hurts his own brother because that is up to his parents. But MJ3 do not have any parents to protect them and that is why DCFS has been called in. They have no one but an 80 year old lady who allowed her own children to be beaten to protect them.

Jermajesty? What the heck kind of name is that. It's bad enough to name your kid after a Disney movie character, but Jermajesty?

Hey, we played "cops and robbers" too as kids. But once a stun-gun entered the picture - you need to have a talk with the kid!

90. Real news, right on with what you said about the bullying, I was bullied beyond belief as a child because of my lazy eye, I was literally tortured, I went to 7 different schools only to get the same thing, one time the entire 6th grade class started on me, even cornered me and hit me with the jump ropes, the teacher did sh** and I ran to the bathroom and cried my eyes out.

I know what its like to be bullied, and I use to sit in my room at 12 years old and imagine shooting every one of those kids, though it didnt help that a pearl jam video showed a similar thing and put it in my head, the difference is I knew not to do it, I knew it was wrong....but I kicked all their as**es anyhow lol.

RIGHT...If anyone here or TMZ THINKS.. this playing around is something to worry about then let's clean off the store shelves from all video games and also take many shows and movies off t.v. so they don't learn to IMITATE.. which is the real problem here, they are children so let it go TMZ, pick on Jermaine and not his kids..

You use the name stun GUN for the visceral reaction. But it is not a gun. It does not project anything. You have to touch someone with it. Merely pointing it at someone is not dangerous in any way. It would be like pointing a book at someone. In fact, it is as dangerous as a book because you would have to throw it to do any damage. But pointing a book doesn't make headlines. Come on Harvey, you are above this sensationalism BS.

89. 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.

Big difference between playing cops & robbers with toy guns and using air or stun guns. Someone in the house is not doing a good job of watching the children. Two words for Jaafar: "Military school."

SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE IS TRYING TO MAKE KATHERINE LOOSE THE RIGHT TO TAKE CARE OF MICHAEL'S THREE CHILDREN SO THEY CAN GET THE INHERITANCE FROM THE CHILDREN. TMZ WHY DON'T YOU LEAVE HER AND THE CHILDREN ALONE. EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE THE SOCIAL SERVICES DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BUT SOCIAL SERVICES IS NOT ALWAYS THE WAY TO GO. THEY DON'T DO THERE JOB UNLESS IT HAS TO DO WITH A LOT OF PUBLICITY OR IF ITS A FAMOUS FAMILY THAT'S INVOLVED LIKE THE JACKSON'S OR OTHERS. SOCIAL SERVICES IS BAD BECAUSE THEY DON'T ALWAYS DO RIGHT BY THE CHILDREN. LEAVE THE CHILDREN WHERE THEY ARE AND LET KATHERINE TAKE CARE OF THE SITUATION. SHE IS ABLE TO DO IT BETTER THAN SOCIAL SERVICES. ALL THESE NEWS MEDIA AND TMZ ARE TRYING TO START TROUBLE SOUNDS LIKE. WONDER HOW THEY WOULD FEEL IF SOMEONE DID THIS TO SOMEONE IN THEIR FAMILY. THEY WOULDN'T LIKE IT AND THEY WOULD PROBABLY TELL EVERYBODY TO BUTT OUT OF THEIR BUSINESS. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO LOOK AT THEIR OWN FAMILY AND SEE IF THEIR CHILDREN ARE DOING THINGS THAT ARE WRONG AS WELL EVEN TMZ EMPLOYEES AND OWNERS. TMZ AND ALL YOU OTHERS WHO THINK SOCIAL SERVICES SHOULD GET INVOLVED AGAIN NEED TO BUTT OUT BECAUSE NEITHER OF YOU WERE THERE AND DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. ALL YOU DOING IS LISTENING TO SOMEONE WHO IS TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING OR IS JUST TRYING TO START TROUBLE AND ALL THIS IS BASED ON HEAR SAY. OTHERS WILL LIE OR TRY TO START SOMETHING JUST TO GET ON TV OR WEBSITES LIKE TMZ AND OTHERS. SO IF YOU WERE NOT THERE THAN KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT OF THE JACKSON'S BUSINESS WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY ISSUES. YOU ALL WOULD NOT WANT OTHERS TO STICK THEIR NOSE IN YOUR FAMILY BUSINESS. SO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU LISTEN TO AND THE INDIVIDUALS WHO SAY IT OR REPORT IT BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT OR THE TRUTH. DON'T LIKE JERMAINE BUT I AM SURE KATHERINE AND HIM HAVE TAKING CARE OF THE SITUATION. YOU KNOW ITS FUNNY HOW JERMAINE SAID THE THINGS ABOUT TMZ YESTERDAY ON THE WEBSITE AND TODAY IT HAS THIS STORY COME OUT ABOUT HIS SON. WONDER WHAT'S UP WITH THAT. JUST SHOWS YOU DON'T TRUST NO ONE ESPECIALLY THE ONES WHO WORK FOR YOU OR FAMILY MEMBERS WHO WILL SELL YOU OUT TO MAKE A BUCK.

If TMZ is going to post a story like this, why not post the video so we can come to our own conclusion, instead of being force fed the writer's opinion on what the video shows. And to post a poll on that is VERY bias.

Having two sons of my own, who are 12 and 9, playing cops is not a cause for L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services to get involved.

My only concern is, who in the Encino compound has it in for Jermaine's children to call child services in the first place and to give TMZ this alleged home video. Katherine should be more concerned with possible staff members in her home causing all this bad publicity.
