Michael "The Cryptkeeper" Jackson looks for reduction of $3 million bail

Michael Jackson's lawyers have formally asked for a reduction of the $3 million bail placed on the singer in his child molestation case. This despite fears by the prosecution that MJ might flee if faced with conviction.

Jackson's legal team claim the singer is not a flight risk (yeah, right!), and should get the same level of bail that any other individual would receive.

"As the day of trial approaches and Mr. Jackson makes a hard-headed assessment of his chances for an acquittal and ponders the unhappy but inevitable consequences of a conviction, he may well conclude that life as a wealthy absconder ... is preferable to what might amount to a life term in a California prison," prosecutors said in court papers.

Prosecutors argued in their motion that Jackson was an international celebrity "whose lifestyle to date would not have prepared him to adapt readily to a prison environment and routine and whose physical stature would present its own problems for him in making the necessary adjustments."

Oh, yeah. Right. Can you imagine MJ in a jail cell? With a massive cellmate named Bubba? Who has a problem with depth perception?

I'm thinking that MJ would either try to go live with fellow convicted child molester Roman Polanski overseas, or try to kill himself.

Then the question is how many of the fawning fans who worship the ground the has-been performer walks on would follow the Cryptkeeper-lookalike into oblivion...

Puh-lease.........that scumbag'll be on the next flight to France, watch.

There, he can hangout with fell sh--heads Papa Doc or Baby Doc Duvalier (whatever!) - the killers of thousands of Haitians in ANOTHER failed French colony around the world.

(Okay, not quite the same analogy, but crooks nonetheless.)

Then, as a reward, they get "political" asylum (sp). (Can the frenchies do anything right?)

Hmm, isn't France also where Mark Rich and the other guy - the movie maker/statutory rapist - live? Polanski, is it?

Hell no, you don't get no bail reductio!! Sell a couple cows from Neverland.......punk ass.

Are you a complete idiot, Michael? (Don't bother. I already know the answer to that.) "Fellow convicted child molester Roman Polanski." Neither Michael Jackson nor Roman Polanski is a convicted child molester. Accused. Not convicted. Heck, not even tried.
