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.

They aren't trying to get their hands on MICHAEL's $$$. They are trying to steal Michael's CHILDREN's $$$. It's not Michael's $$$ anymore.

Look at the picture of Katherine at the BET awards. She is in a wheelchair and her face is somewhat drawn. Now, look at the picture of Katherine playing the UNO game. That Katherine's face is puffy and bloated and that smile looks unfamiliar. Are her eyes open or closed? Is she alive or dead? Just saying....

It is all about Money and greed. The family wants money and will do anything. Maybe they will even bump off MJ's kids? Money corrupts.

I think that if the police are habitually being called to a particular residence, then that residence should start having to pay for the services. The police are not their personal servants. Much the same way Mt. Climbers, and lost hikers should have to pay for their own rescues. Tax payers shouldn't have to pay for others stupidity! Now if we can get this message to Obama, and his lazy, self-absorbed voters.

How in the **** do these idiot deputies know that Katherine is okay? They didn’t even have the balls to insist on talking to her in AZ. I can’t even fathom how that worked: someone calls and is concerned she is being held against her will, deputies go to try and talk to her but are blocked from even seeing her, and somehow that means she’s just fine? No wonder their budget has been cut - they’re ****ing morons.

So siblings want to invalidate will to get the piece of the pie even though its the only will where they get pie. Clearly, whoever was speaking is an idiot.
