Now they are saying this? Now?

Two of the Michael Jackson jurors who acquitted him in the last trial are coming out now to state that they regret the decision to free him and that they were pressured to acquit. The pair, Ray Hultman and Eleanor Cook — both of whom are shopping book deals-told an MSNBC reporter that they voted to clear Jackson on 14 counts after jury foreman Paul Rodriguez threatened to remove them from the jury if they did not agree to acquit, according to a report by The Associated Press. Both now say they believed Jackson was guilty and that they went along with the other jurors when it became clear that they would not convict the singer. "No doubt in my mind whatsoever, that boy was molested, and I also think he enjoyed to some degree being Michael Jackson's toy," Cook said on MSNBC's "Rita Cosby: Live and Direct." Cook's book is to be titled "Guilty as Sin, Free as a Bird." Jackson was cleared of all charges in the case — including molestation and giving alcohol to a minor — on June 13 and has not been seen in public since the verdict. Both jurors denied to Cosby that they were speaking out now in order to cash in on their part in the case. "I'm speaking out now because I believe it's never too late to tell the truth," Cook said. Ehh, sorry Elanor, but it's goddamn too late now. You should've said so back then and stuck to your decision if you really thought he was "guilty as sin". And what the hell is that shiton "the Boy enjoying to some degree being Michael Jackson's toy" all about anyway? You saying that in your own personal judgment that the Boy liked being molested? So not only did you free his molester, you are blaming the victim as well? WTF is wrong with you Lady? Jebus!
