  • According to Jermaine Jackson, the Jackson family would have smuggled Michael to Bahrain—which has no extradition treaty with the U.S.—on a private plane if he'd been convicted of child molestation,. "If they were going to sit and crucify my brother for something that he didn't do, America deserves us not to come back here," Jermaine said in an obviously very coherent and sensible interview with the Times of London. "At the end of the day, this is supposed to be the land of the brave, home of the free, democracy, freedom of speech," he later said, as he continued his pattern of saying things that make complete sense and are not just strings of vaguely related words.
