In a surprise move, Joe Jackson is looking not to stir the proverbial pot.
The late Michael Jackson's father is trying to prevent armies of famously passionate Michael Jackson fans from exploding on Dr. Conrad Murray supporters ... which apparently exist ... at the doctor's upcoming hearing in court.
Joe's begging Michael's fans to not "lower" themselves to "their" level.
It's unclear who they even are, but in a letter to MJ's fans, Joe says:
Joe would also love you to pick up MJ's greatest hits.
"We would like to urge fans that are planning to attend to please do so in peace, unity and love for Michael. There should be NO violence, NO slander, NO yelling, and NO bad-mouthing or name-calling of Murray or his supporters."
Joe added, "By calling names, we are lowering ourselves to their level."
The elder Jackson says the message is simple, "Justice for Michael."
Never thought we'd see the day, but we have nothing bad to say about Joe here. Perhaps he's just letting his own wrongful death suit against Murray do the talking.
