The Historical Significance of Jacko's Acquittal

At this point, even villagers in small huts in Tonga know that Michael Jackson was found not guilty of all of the molestation and child endangerment charges that were facing him. My point here is not to proclaim Jackson's guilt or innocence, but let's face it----one more child abuse allegation and the Vatican may grant him priesthood.

Anyway, on Jackson's website, there is an intro celebrating his "victory". This wouldn't be all that interesting, except I noticed something really bizarre about it. If you pay close attention to the writing that flashes across the screen, you will see that Jackson equates his acquittal with some other major historical events. You may not have realized this, but the day he was found not guilty is as pivotal a point in world history as the fall of the Berlin Wall and Nelson Mandela being freed. Mikey has always been a bit ego-maniacal, but this takes the proverbial cake. If you're interested in checking this out, you can do so here: http://mjjsource.com/ My suggestion is to turn the volume down first. The song that accompanies the intro is almost as offensive as the content itself...
