    [SARCASM]Yeah that's pretty much what happens most of the time, the jury decide beforehand and the evidence rarely influences their opinion...[/SARCASM]
    Fixed that for you matey....(to clear up any confusion )

    at the moment, my personal view is that he needs to see a psychiatrist, while it might not have been a fair trial, there is no point grumbling about it
    Not grumbling, just analysing and discussing

    It's interesting how people regard the severe minority as abnormal.

    i know, but there is nothing we can do is there, perhaps the prosecution might move for a retrial, if that happens they'll just try the whole thing over again, if they don't then they don't,

    grumbling about it now won't change what happened, he's been found not guilty, and while we all might think differently we have to accept the juries verdict

    I agree with the verdict whole heartidly. I am genuinely interested as to whether people thought it was a fair trial.

    It either was a fair trial, or it wasn't. And if it wasn't, then that's inevitable and impossible to prevent.

    It was a fair trial.

    At the start of the trial the jury was selected using a system to find people who had little/no idea of who Jackson was and for what I can understand the Jury was watched so foul play was avoided.

    The main reason Jackson was found innocent was the poor case put forward by the DA which was easily countered by one of the best defence teams in America. His money was not used to bribe the jury but was used to have the best defence possible.

    have they been dead for the last 40 years?

    people might have lied just to get a once in a lifetime opportunity of being at his courtcase

    And credit where credit's due. Thomas Mesereau presented an excellent case. Which quite possibly saved Jacksons life. Any one know how much he charged?

    i think its one of the better, at least we don't have the death sentence, thats something america needs to get rid of, if they find saddam guilty what are they going to do, make him feel guilty about all the things he did?

    no, they're going to give him the easy way out

    Maybe Jackson didn't arrange an out of court settlement because he wanted to show the world he was innocent? Maybe he had had enough of people scamming him for his money, and wanted to settle it the fair way? It's a long shot because I think the opposition had a fairly strong case, but why shouldn't he put up a fight?

    I think it's because the previous case was a civil case, whilst these were criminal charges. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I wouldn't know much about previous case(s). :p:

    im so happy he is not guilty! jst dont think he cud hav done a thing like that. and the thing is the jury didnt really hav any solid evidence that he commited anything so there must have been doubt and generally if there is doubt in a case they cannot convict. so i guess it is fair ...

    Of course, the years of appeals that would happen beforehand, would probably make it more expensive anyway. :rolleyes:
