Joe Jackson -- Spankings Kept Michael Out of Gangs

9/5/2010 11:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson says his heavy parental hand kept Michael Jackson away from gangs.


The interview with Joe was shot by over the summer and will be used as part of a movie Katherine Jackson is producing with Howard Mann.

In the clip, an interviewer asks Joe what he thinks about Michael's past comments about Joe's parenting -- alluding to allegations of physical abuse. Joe says, "I had to be like that because when raising him, in those days, so many gangs out there getting into trouble, going to jail. Most of them are dead now. He didn't have to worry about that."

The interviewer also asked if Joe had any regrets, "No! They tried to make a big issue when I spanked Michael or some of the kids, ya know? Just like they didn't spank their kids when they did wrong. The media twists everything."

Sure Joe you saved, what 6 year old? from street gangs while exposing him to strip teases and hotel gang bangs, robbed him of a childhood and drove him to self mutilate.

You shameless pig, you did not deserve to have such a supremely gifted sensitive child. God was kind to you this life, but I can bet your 82 year old arse that he won't be next time.

"Most of them are dead now. He didn't have to worry about that."
No, Joe - he had you to make him feel unloved.He spent his entire life striving to be loved and went to extreme lengths to do so and guess what - he's dead too. Shut up Joe - nothing you say can excuse your cruel behaviour towards all your children. Thank God you don't have custody of Michael's kids or you'd probably be trying to keep them 'out of gangs' too.

Okay, I just find this theory funny. MJ making it in a "gang"?

Let me laugh my ass off over this one. MJ was such a wimp in the first place, I don't think Joe had anything to worry about in the first place. LOL

"The media twists everything"? So convenient to blame it on the media, no matter what you're talking about. It was Michael himself who complained on various occasions about being spanked, not the media. If not for these complaints, "the media" would have never known about this!

You know, if Michael had done a little "spanking" of his own as a child...he might have wound up liking girls...instead of plying little boys with "jesus juice" before dragging them into bed to play "hide the bologna."

This man is Evil! He is an abuser of children and should be
sent to prison. His sole motivation in Beating his children was
his own Enrichment. Joe is a Lazy, Old Bastard. let the Fossill die and the sooner the better.

Wait, didn't he say once that he did NOT spank Michael and it was Kathrine that spanked him? And what does he mean when he says Michael didn't have to worry about gangs and "dying" Michael is dead! He is so full of it!
