One Man's Art Is Another Man's Porn

Michael Jackson's defence team took Detective Janet Williams, of the Santa Barbara County police force, to task yesterday in the Michael Jackson trial.

They were analysing the book of photographs, Poo-Chi, which had been entered into evidence at the trial along with other books and magazines seized during the November 2003 raid on Neverland.

Detective Williams said that "I can still be shocked" by sexual imagery, and that she had been shocked by photos of the female groin in Poo-Chi.

However, all is not what it seems, the defence pointed out:

"These are pictures of armpits and other bodily folds that are made to look like genital areas as a kind of spoof, are they not?" .

Detective Williams hesitantly agreed:

"It could be,".

Williams agreed that none of the books, or magazines, were illegal for an adult to purchase or peruse.

The Japan-born artist, Mayumi Lake, explains in a statement on her website that in her Poo-Chi series:

"I transform adult (both male and female) anatomy into provocatively suggestive young girl's anatomy to elicit forbidden desires."

  1. Janet Arvizo is the worst witness. She said she is a bad actor. I don't think so. As I saw it... She is a BAD LIAR!
