I'm not surprised, celebrity can buy a lot.

Michael who?
0(0.0%)

Do you think Michael Jackson is:

Guilty, and got away with it.

Completely innocent.
1(16.7%)
Guilty, but it can't be proved in court.
4(66.7%)
Guilty, and provably so, but the jury ignored the proof.
0(0.0%)

Do you think the jury in this case:

Was able to ignore the "celebrity factor" and be fair
2(33.3%)
Was swayed in Michael's favor by the "celebrity factor".
4(66.7%)
Was swayed against Michael by the "celebrity factor".
0(0.0%)

The "past bad acts" law, allowing the introduction of previous incidents as evidence:

Is offensive to the Constitution and would have gotten any conviction overturned at the Supreme Court
0(0.0%)
On the whole, it's a bad idea, even though it's a useful tool.
3(50.0%)
It's neither good nor bad; it depends on how the prosecutors use it.
0(0.0%)
On the whole, it's a good idea, but it's just one more tool.
2(33.3%)
Is a great idea, helps establish patterns of behavior, and if it saves one child, it's worth it.
1(16.7%)
