Here's a novel suggestion...

It appears two Michael Jackson jurors have "changed" their mind. Of course the fact that both of them have book deals and an upcoming movie has nothing to do with their attempts to grab some media attention.

Explaining the turnaround by Cook and Hultman, consultant Larry Garrison, who is working with both on their separate books and a combined television movie, said all the jurors "had an agreement [to be united] and then basically when they went on 'Larry King Live,' both Eleanor and Ray couldn't tolerate what was going on anymore. They said, 'Enough is enough."'

Juries aren't supposed to be united, if you really felt he wasn't innocent? You should have not voted with them. I hope your book deals flop and the movie stinks, because people like you that rush to get the book and movie deals on what is supposed to be part of the duty of being an american makes me say "Enough is enough, the greed of people like you make me sick."

"They can be as angry as they want to. They ought to be ashamed. They're the ones that let a pedophile go," responded Cook, 79.

Slight correction there Mrs Cook. you let him go too.

I thought he was guilty but that they couldn't convict with the case presented.

I am pretty sure that the book deals came before the change of heart and who cares about the MJ jury. Everything was put on E! anyway

I just think book and movie deals for jurors ruins the whole system. On high profile cases they start thinking more about how they can profit rather than what they are supposed to be doing. There should be some type of court rule that if you are a member of a jury you can't profit from it.

It makes me mad that I can never get called to jury duty. I would make stuff up and go crazy in deliberations so that I can write a sequel to "12 Angry Men." I will call it "1 Crazy Asshole."

I have that movie now that they've released it on DVD, it's one of my favorite old movies.

Still the biggest media frenzy ever is the kidnapping trial of the Limburgh baby (last name most likely spelt wrong). There were more reporters and public interest of that case than the two MJ cases, the Simpson trial and Blake trial and Spector trial all put together.

But hey, the old lady has to eat more than cat food. She'll get all that money, keep about $100,000 and give the rest top the happy animal society and the die 7 months after she gets her money. If it happens that way, I'm hitting AC and try my hand at Texas Hold 'Em poker.

Only in America!!!! Maybe the two of them will get sued by the other ten and have to split the proceeds.

But I am so ober the Jackson Trial. I'm waiting to see the next celeb screw up with the law. Has Ms. Ryder been hitting the malls lately?

IMHO, the whole jury thing was a joke and farce. Very similar to OJ. And, of course, no secret I believe if anyone but whacko jacko? Would have been behind bars a long time ago ? For treatment of being a tad strange and profiling just might mean he's a terrorist. :) Seriously ? Well heck, was serious bfore ! Okay, okay, just wait until the jurors began paying the court sytem to sit in on high profile/celebrtiy cases.
