The long wait, at least by media standards, for a verdict in the Michael Jackson trial is leading to tension on site between fans, protesters, residents, media and police.
The police are reportedly expecting a "highly emotional" reaction from fans, when the verdict is announced.
The verdict will be preceded by a one hour warning, which will give ample time for the ranks of those who maintain a daily vigil outside the courthouse to swell.
The police are going to draft in 200 extra officers, in order to ensure the throng does not descend into chaos.
As noted before, despite claiming to believe in Jackson's media image of love and peace, some Jackson fans seem to have a grudge against journalists for what they perceive to be unfair reporting of their hero.
In the spirit of freedom of speech, some have attempted to stop journalist broadcasting by sounding horns and chanting.
There are even reports of fans were putting out strips of spikes, designed to burst car tyres, on the roadside.
This seems to be in retaliation for the car that allegedly deliberately ran over tributes, that had been placed in the roadside verges by some fans.
I wonder what they would fill their lives with if Jackson had never existed?
