Michael Jackson, A fair jury?

I love a good "Reductio ad Absurdum" argument and Ken Schram got a great one here;

Jesse Jackson Can Be Such A Buffoon

It's a classic "Reductio ad Absurdum" argument by extending the hypothesis of Reverend Jackson "i.e. It's discrimination to not demand more black jurors for MJ." to the obvious ridiculous conclusion. Then Ken goes further to challenge anyone to find someone who would actually be a peer to MJ.

Despite this analysis "Reductio ad Absurdum" arguments hide and obfuscate the truth of a matter by "making fun" of them.

I do not think that MJ is getting a fair trial. Not because he is black but because he is obviously not "straight" as in a normal/average heterosexual male. Society automatically suspects a male who is perhaps "gay" in some way of being capable of child molestation.

I wonder just how many "gay" jurors are on Michael Jackson’s jury?

... and Ken how about a straight serious argument for a change, oh yea you are in the entertainment business, sorry what was I thinking ...
