    Not even a child would ever believe that AEG didn't know about the atrocities that Murray was doing with Michael's health, and even less that they had no responsability on it. Because Michael's health was not a minor detail in the million-dollar project of 50 concerts AEG was engaged in. On the contrary, the whole business depended on Michael's health. Thus, the first thing they should have made sure was that Michael's health was IN THE BEST HANDS AND NOT IN MURRAY'S HANDS, WHICH WERE THE WORST HANDS. So no way anyone would ever believe that AEG did not know or care about WHO and HOW was treating Michael's health. In fact truth is that AEG hired Murray -THE WORST DOCTOR THEY COULD FIND- to kill Michael Jackson, because THE BIG BUSINESS did not depend on preserving Michael's health but, on the contrary, on KILLING MICHAEL for then, through a forged will, robbing him of his legacy. Thus, the whole world will be supporting Michael's mother, Mrs. Katherine Jackson, in this trial in her quest for Justice for her dearest son and our beloved Michael. And we'll be looking forward to having this AEG mafia convicted and punished with all the weight of the law

    Not only the executives of AEG have to pay for their responsability in the murder of Michael Jackson but also: 1) the mafia of Sony, since both companies had plotted this crime together for then profiting from Michael's legacy after his death through a forged will; 2) John Branca and John McClain, the present executors of MJ Estate who are also associated to AEG and Sony and who, through a forged will, are illegaly running MJ Estate to benefit the interests of those two corrupt companies and those of their accomplices in the Government 3) All the corrupt members of the Police, System of Justice, Corporate Media, and Government who, at the moment of Michael's death and afterwards, covered up the crime by deleting all evidence (such as the footage of the surveillance cameras in Carolwood , thing which was never investigated), by distorting the reality of the facts, and by smearing and defaming Michael and his family. The whole world is aware of all the atrocities this big network of criminals committed against Michael and his family and thus, all the people throughout the world who stand by Justice and so stand by Michael and his family, will go on waiting until ALL OF THESE CRIMINALS BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, CONVICTED, AND PUNISHED WITH ALL THE WEIGHT OF THE LAW!
