Macauley Culkin seems to be able to
relate to Michael Jackson and, perhaps
more

than any other witness, could open a
window for the jurors to look through
and

try to get an understanding of what's
going through Michael Jackson's head.
In

that respect, Macauley Culkin was a
very important witness. He said he was

never molested, never treated
inappropriately, never touched

inappropriately.

THE DEFENSE SHOWED THE COURT UNEDITIED
FOOTAGE TAKEN DURING THE TAPING OF

THE MARTIN IR FILM 'LIVING WITH MICHAEL

IN THE VIDEO...JACKSON TALKED ABOUT
BEING LONELY AND ISOLATED.



LEGAL ANALYSTS FEEL IT WAS A WAY FOR
DEFENSE TO GET JACKSON'S MESSAGE ACROSS

WITHOUT TESTIFYING..







they're hearing about how his childhood
was so difficult..how he didn't

experience a childhood and how he likes
to share his bed with boys... and it's

all unchallenged by the prosecution.








THE JURY ALSO HEARD HIM REPEATEDLY DENY
EVER HAVING PLASTIC SURGERY..



OR DRINKING ALCOHOL



THEN DURING THE SAME TAPING ,JACKSON
ADVISE IR TO TRY 'DRINKING A LITTLE

QUOTE' JESUS JUICE...A LITTLE' WINE...'
