Sheriff's Deputies

Feel Used

By Jackson Family

Some L.A. County Sheriff's deputies feel "used and manipulated" by Michael Jackson's family members who reported Katherine Jackson missing ... this according to Sheriff's Dept. sources.

Members of the Dept. familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... they believe MJ's family members knew Katherine was not in danger but used the Sheriff's Dept. as a "pawn in the middle of a family game."

Sheriff's sources grouse that their budget has been severely cut which makes bogus claims sting even more than usual.  They believe the end game here is money.

As you know ... MJ's brothers and sisters want Michael's will invalidated so they can get a piece of the pie.  But there's a BIG problem.  If the will is invalidated, the prior will gets resurrected, and under that document Michael's siblings are completely cut out.

Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ, "We don't feel manipulated.  We respond professionally to all such reports."

BTW ... no matter what the family's motives, the Sheriff's Dept. will continue to investigate the claims.

Bet Katherine is trying to help her freeloader kids & grandkids get around the revokable trust / will while she's alive 'cos after she's gone, they're going to have to find someone else to mooch off of. Once Katherine is gone, the balance of her trust goes to her already filthy rich grandkids and the rest of the family gets squat. Michael knew what he was doing, it was a big screw you to his family from the grave.

This could have been prevented if MJ just left his blood relatives some money. Why did he feel that black people were not good enough to have some of his money?

“My source says, “Randy got into it with a security guard, and even Janet was very aggressive. They all had cameras out and running to record what was happening.” The “scuffle” between two family members may have been between Michael’s brother Randy and Joe Jackson’s nephew, Trent. The latter was hired by Michael Jackson seven or eight years ago to take care of Mrs. Jackson–drive her, run errands, whatever she needed. There was a rumor today that Jermaine and Randy were going to accuse Trent of “elder abuse”–but the rumor was scotched by Whitmore. By all accounts, Trent has taken excellent care of Mrs. Jackson.”

Infact they wanted to involve the Sheriff's Dept because they want them to investigate the Estate to favoring the disgusting plot they orchestrated, but of course the Sheriff's Dept understood they are doing all this for money and of course greedy unnnatural mother Katherine is well happy to be manipulated by them if they tell her they can get more money, no matter if they have no chance, so she had no problem to leave Michael's children alone and letting them do whatever they want!!!

The fact that they know if the will get's invalidated and they get completely cut out just shows that they're NOT after his money or a 'piece of the pie' as you claim.

If you are talking to me I never suggested they can get the will invalidated and also in this case they would be cut out of the will, I said if anyone contests the will does not inherit anything and that the will has been validated by the judge and is authentic. But they want the will to be invalidated indeed so that clause would be not valid!!!

The more this continues, the bigger risk of CPS getting involved. Perhaps the Jackson moochers think they can get a pay-off from the kids' trust to go away and stop causing trouble or else the kids will end up in foster care while the whole family is investigated.

Aww, so the Lost Hills Sheriff's Dept is feeling manipulated. And they've got a belly ache over a severe pay cut and decided to use this opportunity to bring it up. 'It makes the bogus claims sting more than usual'. More than usual? How odd. They feel 'used' - 'like pawns in the middle of a family game' Wow. Is this a police dept. or a F'ing telenovela?

I smell a payoff from the Jackson clan already. This is the same dept. that took money from Mel Gibson for their stupid 'fund' and had him do a public service announcement for them well BEFORE he was arrested by Deputy Mee. Gee I wonder what would prompt Gibby to do these things seeing what a tightwad he is when it comes to charity - AND this was the first time they caught him COUGH! Well Gibby got his way and proved he owned Malibu with the firing of Deputy Mee recently. This after trying to flee from Mee and acting like a beligerent Ahole at the station. No disorderly charges for Gibby because he pays to play.

Whenever these hams get the spotlight they always make it about themselves. Always patting themselves on the back and reminding the public how much they are under-appreciated. As usual this Whitmore moron can't even keep his story straight. Thank God Paris still has her IPhone and twitter. I bet Randy the bowling ball head who wasn't even a performer wants that iPhone as much as he wants the MJ charity funds. S***bags.
