Gun found at home of Michael Jackson’s kids, probe begins

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

LOS ANGELES - Child protective services are investigating the presence of a stun gun at the house where the children of Michael Jackson live, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Quoting an attorney for the children’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, the report said that the investigation was launched after one of the children’s cousins bought a Taser gun on the internet and played with it in the house. However, the attorney, Adam Streisand, insisted that there was no danger posed to anyone from the incident.

“Two weeks ago, Jermaine Jackson’s 13-year old son, Jaafar, who lives with his mother Alejandra at the home of Katherine Jackson, received a package with a stun gun he ordered online,” the statement said. “Jaafar opened the package alone in his bathroom and tested it on a piece of paper”.

According to the statement, Katherine Jackson and a security official heard the sound and immediately confiscated the weapon. Streisand said none of Michael Jackson’s children were ever in any danger from the weapon.

“All of the kids are happy, healthy and wonderful and that is Mrs Jackson’s only objective and concern,” Streisand said.

Jackson’s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, have been living at the family compound since their father died on June 25, 2009, from a drug overdose.
