Michael Jackson & Murder, Inc.

From accident to autopsy

The Firpo Files

September 29, 2011

(Sentinel, Oct 13-19, 2011)

One month to the day after America memorialized the ten-year anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11, the world witnessed another heart-wrenching tragedy when a U.S. court allowed pre-autopsy photos of Michael Joseph Jackson to be flashed around the world on Tuesday, October 11, 2011.
 
It was a violation of the worse kind, committed on an unprecedented scale, heretofore unknown in the annals of the modern GPS-satellite-tracking-iPod-iPad communications era. The philanthropic Steve Jobs is surely turning over in his grave. Michael can't. His body has been butchered.

They humiliated him in life by taking court-ordered detailed photographs of his genitalia. They further humiliated him in death by displaying the outer shell of the man who once was the King of Pop--the King of Music. In my interview nearly two months ago with Michael's famed attorney Thomas Mesereau of the law firm of Mesereau & Yu, Tom accurately forecasted these foreboding words before the storm of the trial was ever visited upon us: "I'm not looking forward to the disquieting autopsy photos of Michael Jackson."

My heart weeps for Michael's family, friends and associates, as well as his millions of fans and admirers. Many are convinced that the trial is all part of a charade to make Michael's death look like a accident--mob style. If so, it won't be the first murder by "accident." 

 Game of Death: Though he should have been leading them in battle, King David sent his troops to fight the Ammonites while he stayed in Jerusalem. (2 Samuel 11:1) What happened next was not one of his finer moments:

"One late afternoon, David got up from taking his nap and was strolling on the roof of the palace. From his vantage point on the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was stunningly beautiful. David sent to ask about her, and was told, ‘Isn't this Bathsheba, daughter of Eliam and wife of Uriah the Hittite?' David sent his agents to get her. After she arrived, he went to bed with her. (This occurred during the time of ‘purification' following her period.) Then she returned home. Before long she realized she was pregnant."--2 Samuel 11:2-5, Message Bible.

To cover his adulterous misdeed David pulled Uriah from battle and attempted to coerce him into sleeping with his wife. (2 Samuel 11:6, 7) However, "After Uriah left the palace, an informant of the king was sent after him. But Uriah didn't go home. He slept that night at the palace entrance, along with the king's servants." (2 Samuel 11:8, 9, MSG) After the King asked Uriah why he didn't go home, Uriah answered: "My master Joab and his servants are roughing it out in the fields. So, how can I go home and eat and drink and enjoy my wife?"--2 Samuel 11:10, 11, MSG.

‘Make it look like an accident': "‘All right,' said David, ‘have it your way. Stay for the day and I'll send you back tomorrow.'" But, cunning as ever, the king invited Uriah to a lavish meal, and even got him drunk so he could go home and sleep with his wife. It didn't work though. (2 Samuel 11:12, 13, MSG) This now called for extreme measures. David put out a contract hit on Uriah with distinct instructions to Joab to make it look like an accident. He even had Uriah unknowingly deliver the contract to hit man Joab!

"In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah. In the letter he wrote, ‘Put Uriah in the front lines where the fighting is the fiercest. Then pull back and leave him exposed so that he's sure to be killed." (2 Samuel 11:14, 15, MSG) "Holy Hit Man, Batman!" shouts Robin. "Was King David the Original Godfather?"

Joab carried out the hit, even going so far as to have other innocent soldiers killed to really make it look like an accident. (2 Samuel 11:16, 17) David and Joab even employed an elaborate scheme so that the king would know the contract met with success. (2 Samuel 11:18-25) And although Uriah's wife Bathsheba no doubt sincerely grieved over the death of her husband, she quickly got over it and married David shortly thereafter. (2 Samuel 11:26-27) Ironically, their son, wise King Solomon, wrote, "There is nothing new under the sun."--Ecclesiastes 1:9, New World Translation.

Not surprisingly, all this intrigue and the extravagant measures taken did not go unnoticed by Jehovah God. Stay tuned.
