Jackson Juror: Mother to Blame
From the front page of the Washington Times today (via AFP) is a peculiar quote from one of the jurors who aquitted Michael Jackson of child molestering:
A third juror, a woman who has children, wondered how a mother could let a child sleep with an adult.
“Every moment of your day, you’re protective over what happens to your children,” the woman said.
“What mother in her right mind would allow that to happen? Or just freely volunteer your child, you know, to sleep with someone? And not just so much Michael Jackson, but any person, for that matter,” she said.
If I’m not misreading this, the juror basically says “sure, Michael Jackson is guilty, but it is the accuser’s mother who is really to blame for putting her son in that situation.” Nice work.
