Idiots Abound

Some random fan quotes given upon Michael Jackson's acquittal

  • "This proves that justice can prevail in America," said Tara Bardella, 19, who came from Arizona two weeks ago to wait for the verdicts. "We love you, Michael!"
  • "I'm shaking," said Emily Smith, 24, of London, who was among the few lucky fans who got courtroom passes. "I believe justice has been done today."
  • Lifelong fan Raffles Vanexel, 29, of Amsterdam, said he "cried like a little baby" when the verdicts were read.

    "I feel like I was reborn," said Vanexel, who claimed he helped lift Jackson onto an SUV for his notorious rooftop dance after his arraignment. "The best is yet to come for Michael. This time around, the world owes him something."

  • Martin Stock, the founder of a Jackson fan club in Germany who stayed up past 11 p.m. to watch the outcome, said he was overjoyed, even though he had expected his idol's acquittal.

    "The whole trial was laughable and Michael was treated inhumanely. I think people were trying to throw him into prison to get at his money," Stock said.

I just have one question for these so-called fans: would you leave your kid alone with this man?

If so, you deserve to have your reproductive rights cancelled. You're not intelligent enough to bring a child into this world.

Quite So.

The "Not Guilty" verdict seems quite plausible. The prosecution witnesses were not sterling. The jury had plenty of reason to find reasonable doubt.

Yet it seems obvious fron Michael Jackson's filmed statment that he routinely sleeps with teenage boys that Jackson is a pervert. I suspect that Jackson's hard core fans, like the ones quoted, are indifferent to Jackson's perversion. Yet I would hope that the general public would shun Jackson like threw week old rotten eggs.

Jackson was entitled to the legal benefit of the doubt with respect to his legal case. Jackson is not entitled to that same doubt with respect anybody buying any of his albums. This man does not deserve another dime of your money.

I was glad he was acquited. I won the beverage of my choice from my boss. I'm trying to decide between a hideously expensive scotch and a rare cognac. Either way, yummy.

And what were these parents thinking? They seemed to practically push their kids into his bed. Assholes, all of them.

Finally, Michael is now, probably, broke.

These Jackson fans are giving "raving lunatic no-life fanatics" the world over a bad name. Somewhere, near the vicinity of the real world, there's a 35 year old virgin living in his mother's basement who watched the Jackson verdict coverage while practicing conjugating verbs in Klingon. . . . and he's disturbed by the sheer creepiness of these wackos.

"Raffles" Vanexel's(29? Unbelievable!) statement that "This time around, the world owes him something" is too much.
I'll bet HIS greatest fantasy is that he's four years old again and is invited to sleep over at Mikie's on Friday night.
