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."

Danger Baby, I believe you do not understand english so you should go back to middle school and learn how to read. I never wrote that MJ used tampons. I wrote that Jordan Chandler under the influence of sodium amythal said to Dr. Richard Gardner that one time in the bathroom he saw MJ used tampons. Which proves that Jordan Chandler was incoherent at the time he was accusing MJ of molesting him sexually. Which proves that everything the boy said about MJ molesting him sexually in 1993 was FALSE.
