It's like Jesus Christ had died. The enitre family just want his damn money. I'm sick of seeing the Jackson's. The entire family is messed up except the mom, who I feel sorry for. But please, take the Jackson family off of TV. A bunch of grieving vultures. Sickening.

I notice that "The Jackson Family" is being Demonized here and in the Media for trying to MAKE MONEY off of MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON name and death!

But thoses money crazy vultures "John Branca and John McClain"... the two Executors of Michael Jackson estate,they are "NON-MEMBERS" of The Jackson Family nevertheless,they used his NAME and DEATH to become, "INSTANT MULTI-MILLIONAIRES", after the "MURDER" of "Michael Joseph Jackson" "The Greatest Entertainer and Philanthropist that ever lived!! (IMO)

Justice for Michael

My personal opinion is--Michaels family are all up in years
now, I believe Michael was trying to do this last tour FOR
HIS CHILDREN-Not for ANY of you haters, because without him
their finances will get smaller by the time they become adults. Looking at his youngest child's face says it ALL. Just because Michaels was ACCUSED and NEVER found guilty of
ANY crime, all thi*****red is mean and spiteful. I have recently heard of one case recently showing that the media
made up a lie. PLEASE let his children and family grieve for Michael their way. The children look as if Michael took EXCELLENT care of them. In my opinion even though Michael went over-board He wanted his skin color to match theirs. Please let Michael Jackson rest in PEACE. Don'*****ch or attend the tributes if you dislike what his family are trying to do for their niece and nephews.

OMG! Katherine Jackson and her clan are about the pull ANOTHER CHARITY SCAM, this time on the good and honorable people of Japan! Someone alert the MJ Japanese fan clubs and tell them to BOYCOTT!!

The Jacksons are claiming they are HOLDING A BENEFIT CONCERT for charity to help the CHILDREN of Japan affected by the earthquake, but NONE of the profits from ticket sales are going to charity -- ALL THE CONCERT PROFIT IS GOING TO THE JACKSONS.

The only amount to be donated to charity will be "MERCHANDISING PROFITS." That's right: people will have to buy t-shirts and mugs for any money to be donated to charity. After merchandising expenses are paid, the remaining profits will be donated "to help the children." The BULK OF THE PROFITS -- FROM THE CONCERT ITSELF -- GOES TO THE JACKSONS' BANK ACCOUNTS.

Here's how it was described in one article (CAPS are mine for emphasis):

Jackson Family announce ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ concerts in Japan (Dec. 13 and 14)

Michael Jackson’s family are staging a BENEFIT CONCERT in Japan TO HELP CHILDREN affected by the earthquake earlier this year, as they know it is a cause the late star would have supported.

Katherine Jackson has announced the Tokyo EVENT WILL HELP A CAUSE that her son would have done everything he could to support. Speaking at a press conference...she TEARFULLY told media: “If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.”

...The brothers can’t wait to get to the country and DO SOMETHING TO HELP THE JAPANESE PEOPLE affected by the natural disaster which hit the coast of the Far East country in March.

MERCHANDISING profits from ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ – which will take place in Tokyo on December 13 and 14 – will be donated to ASHINAGA, a charity which helps children who lost their homes or families in the March earthquake.

THE JACKSONS ARE PULLING ANOTHER CONCERT CHARITY SCAM, this time on the peole of Japan. No wonder we have a reputation abroad as "THE UGLY AMERICANS." Jackson Family, YOU ARE A DISGRACE!

John Branca and John McClain, they are using Michael's good name for a CHARITY SCAM. DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The explosive trial of Dr. Conrad Murray -- charged in the death of pop superstar Michael Jackson -- continues today in Los Angeles, and is once again live streaming the proceedings, starting at 8:45 am PT/11:45 am ET.

The prosecution is starting to wind down its case by calling its three final witnesses -- a cardiologist, a sleep expert, and an anesthesiologist -- all of whom will slam Dr. Conrad Murray for using Propofol as a sleep aid for Jackson. The D.A. will likely rest its case this week; then it will be the defense’s turn.

Murray -- Jackson’s live-in physician at the time of his death in June, 2009 -- is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the King of Pop’s death for allegedly giving him a deadly dose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol.

PETA Slams Dr. Conrad Murray For Testing Harmful Drug Propofol On Beagle DogsPETA Slams Dr. Conrad Murray For Testing Harmful Drug Propofol On Beagle Dogs

Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense team has earned another enemy – the animal right’s group PETA - for their testing of the powerful anesthetic Propofol on beagles.

PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, President Ingrid Newkirk exclusively talked to and slammed the doctor, who is accused of killing Michael Jackson.

“Dr. Conrad Murray and his defense team should do time for this act alone. Poisoning and killing dogs will not change what is already known about propofol—its hazards are well do***ented,” she said.

As exclusively reported, as source close to Dr. Murray revealed that Beagle dogs had been used to test the drug as attorneys tried to build their defense of the beleaguered physician.

“A study was done on Beagle dogs to determine how much Propofol would have to be orally consumed to cause death. The only other study that had been done on the oral ingestion of Propofol was on pigs rectums. The study definitely involved more than two dogs. It's unknown if the dogs died, or suffered any harm," the source said.

PETA said this action would have horrified the former King of Pop, who tragically passed away from a propofol overdose in 2009.

“This would have greatly upset Michael, who was known to be a huge animal lover,” the organization told “This was obviously a cruel attempt to drag out this trial and confuse the jurors, adding more victims to the death toll in this sad case.”

Katherine Jackson Says Dr. Murray Is A LiarKatherine Jackson Says Dr. Murray Is A Liar

Katherine Jackson is “livid” that Dr. Conrad Murray told cops two days after her beloved son, Michael Jackson died, that he provided solace to her and the singer's three children after the tragic death.

In fact, far from it, says the Jackson family matriarch, who claims that the embattled cardiologist made the whole thing up, is exclusively reporting.

Katherine Jackson called Deputy District Attorney David Walgren on Monday night, and told him that she was outraged that Dr. Murray made up such a preposterous tale.

"Katherine was almost beside herself with anger after she heard Dr. Murray telling cops that he comforted her and the grandchildren after her son was declared dead. it just never happened, Dr. Murray made the whole thing up. She is disgusted and outraged at Dr. Murray for even daring to suggest that he was there for her," a Jackson family insider tells

Katherine Jackson's nephew, Trent Jackson told CNN's Alan Duke, that Michael's oldest son, Prince also says Dr. Murray never even spoke to the children.

According to Trent, the children were kept in an SUV outside of the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center and it was Michael's manger, Frank DiLeo that escorted the children into the emergency room after their grandmother arrived.

According to the official interview that Murray did with cops:

Dr. Murray: So we -- they brought her into a room down the hall. And I went in there with the emergency room physician who was treating him, whom I was with all the time through his code, and they broke the news to Mrs. Jackson. So the doctor started to tell that, you know her son came in and he was having difficulty breathing and they tried everything. And she said, "well how is he? He's not dead is he?" and the doctor said "yes," and she broke down. It was very -- and weeping. We stayed there, held her hand."

Dr. Murray then talked about how he went to another room where Jackson's three children were, and told them their father had died.

Transcript from the interview:

Dr. Murray: They asked questions, and the children found out that daddy wasn't doing well, that he had passed away. And then they were weeping, really weeping...after they cried and cried and then his daughter uttered a lot of words of unhappiness, and you know she will live alone without her dad and she didn't want to be an orphan...She cried and was very stark. And then she asked to see him. And then that was another thing. How do you let children see him? I asked them to prepare Mr. Jackson's body, make it as presentable as possible, because I recommended an autopsy be performed, so that the children would be able to view their daddy and have them say good-bye to him at this time."

The source says that when Katherine apprised Prince of what had happened in court on Monday, he was more steadfast and determined than ever to take the stand for the prosecution.

"Katherine tells Michael's two oldest children, Prince and Paris what has happened in court everyday. Blanket is just too young to comprehend it, and doesn't ask questions. Prince was mortified when Katherine apprised him of what happened,” the Jackson insider told “He is begging his grandmother to let him take the stand. The decision will be up to David Walgren though.

“Right now, its a 50/50 chance that Prince could take the stand. Prince doesn't want the jurors to feel sympathy for Dr. Murray, and felt that was the reason he made up the entire story about what happened at the hospital. The DA will assess the need to put Prince on the stand, after the defense rests it's case.”

Testimony will resume in the trial on Monday. If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Murray could face up to four years in state prison.
