Michael Jackson jurors should shut up

Several of the jurors who recently acquitted Michael Jackson in a sexual abuse lawsuit now claim Jackson is guilty. They claim at this late date, while shopping book deals, that MJ is a molester, but they were pressured into voting otherwise.

The Jackson jurors should shut their filthy mouths. They acquitted him, but now that they’re looking to cash in, they really think he's guilty. The reason is obvious: no one would buy a book about Michael Jackson not being a child molester.

“No doubt in my mind whatsoever, that boy was molested, and I also think he enjoyed to some degree being Michael Jackson's toy," said Eleanor Cook, as reported by

If she has no doubt, I’m certain she couldn’t have had any “reasonable doubt” either. In light of this, her vote to acquit is mystifying.

If Cook and the other jurors truly believe what they're saying (that Michael Jackson is guilty), they are hypocrites of the worst order. They are liars and traitors who have subverted the justice system and are now looking to profit from it.

And of course, if they don’t believe what they’re saying, they are hypocrites, liars and traitors who have subverted the justice system and are now looking to profit from it.

As far as I’m concerned, such traitors of justice should be quickly tried, and if found guilty, summarily lynched. In the news business, I always keep the following in mind: the information is only as good as the source.
In turn, a person is only as good as his or her honor. I have no use for dishonorable people.

Any way you slice it, the situation offers ample opportunity for me to call the now-dissenting jurors by mean names. I call it as I see it, and I will call them whores. Regardless of Michael Jackson’s true status as an alleged sexual deviant, the jury unanimously acquitted him in a public courtroom. Yet after the trial, these jurors call him guilty through the media, where he suffers no consequences, and where they likely will earn rich rewards.

How I wish these jurors now so confident of Jackson’s guilt would have had the courage to stand up when it mattered.

Without evidence of such, it appears they are simply greedy and morally vacant.

This is a new low for juries. Until now jurors were generally spoken of respectfully by those who closely follow judicial proceedings, such as commentators on Court TV.
How can these "juror/authors" who are tripping out on their 15 minutes of fame look at themselves in the mirror?
Personally I didn't think there was convincing evidence in the case, and was gratified that MJ was acquitted. But in the case of these jurors I think the evidence clearly shows them to be gutless, greedy and guilty.
