Reverend Jesse Jackson entered the media spotlight again, in an attempt to speak on behalf of Michael Jackson.
He said that Michael Jackson does not feel bitter towards Gavin Arvizo, but does feel betrayed by those who testified against him.
It seems, according to the Reverend, that Michael Jackson believes that he will be acquitted.
"He is convinced that he'll be acquitted if the jury uses reasonable doubt..He declares his innocence in the most private sessions."
"I think in some sense he feels betrayed by those he trusted the most, who now seek to destroy him..He's not embittered by it ... he does not speak toward them in embittered tones. He speaks of the unfairness of the sheriff."
Why is he annoyed at the Sheriff?
Reverend Jackson also criticised the search of Neverland. He referred to it as "a Waco-style invasion,".
Needless to say, great emphasis was made as to Jackson's back pain:
"You add to that the stress of this moment. And yet, through it all, he is enduring the pain with great strength and great focus,".
