Jackson Fans Desperate To Visit Grave

A group of MICHAEL JACKSON fans is fighting for access to the star's grave - after cemetery officials decided to impose strict visitation rules.
The Justice4MJ fan group is planning to make a visit to the singer's mausoleum at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California on 25 June (10) to mark the first anniversary of his death.
But they're set to meet resistance from authorities who are cracking down on the number of mourners paying their respects at the site.
According to TMZ.com, guards have been instructed to ask anyone who is loitering in the grounds to leave.
A representative for the Justice4MJ group is urging memorial park bosses to "take into consideration" the huge number of fans who will be travelling from across the globe for the day.
The King of Pop's younger brother Randy Jackson is supporting the mourners and is said to have asked officials to hand out permits to visitors to the tomb.

I'm torn on this subject. On one hand I feel we should all be able to go visit, but there are other people buried there & we must respect them as well as their families wishes that their final resting place be kept private & peaceful. There are a lot of people who still hate Michael & may want to go there just to steal or desecrate his grave. I think they should have made a road somewhere that leads to Neverland & make it like Graceland like Chrissy mentioned. I said this before; they should have it exactly how Michael had it back when he first moved in, with all of the animals & rides. They should have his house fixed the way it was when he lived there & have tours of the house. This way fans can go there & mourn Michael weather his body is there or not. Neverland is a place that Michael put everything that he loved. This is where the fans should be able to go all year round. The Jacksons/ Randy should see if they/ he can make this possible. Bhodi: How about you take your own advice & leave the dead alone, which means just leave Michael alone! The rest of us take our time & write things on here that makes sense; you don't. So you just leave Michael alone.

You know...I support most of the efforts of the "Justice 4 MJ" group. However, this one I do NOT. One thing even fans needs to respect and have understanding knowledge of is that the one thing that MJ wanted most in his lifetime was peace. He now has that. It's a shame that death was the only way he could get it. However, fans need to respect his wishes as well. Additionally, there are others buried within Forest Lawn. MJ is NOT the only one there that needs to be respected. Sorry, but fans simply do NOT belong there.

You know...I support most of the efforts of the "Justice 4 MJ" group. However, this one I do NOT. One thing even fans need to respect and have understanding knowledge of is that the one thing that Michael wanted most in his lifetime was P-E-A-C-E. He now has that. It's a shame that his death was the only way he could get it. Additionally, there are others buried within Forest Lawn. MJ is NOT the only one laid to rest there and they also need to be respected. Sorry, but fans simply do NOT belong there, and I do not support this move at all.

So fans should be allowed. MJ was a public figure and fans should be able to morn their loss how they please. After his death there was alot of secrecy, no access at all to him apart from the memoral service and only a selected few where allowed in to witness it, the berial was the same, shut down to the rest of the world, not even televised so that the fans could of felt at least apart of them was there. Everything to me seems very odd that such a loved public figure like MJ has been shut off to the rest of the world and to those that care for no appearant reason...I say move him to Neverland and open it up to the public so that we can at least have a place to go to release our pain and loss.

It's not fair that they allow Dr Murray to visit Michael. He has access into the grounds outside of opening times. Why is he having special treatment and not the fans......?

I think it is ok for any fan to visit at anytime not only the anniversary of his death!! Why is there such a big hoopla....everyone step back and just look up and tell Michael, You Love him & will cherish all the Memories he left US ALL with he said it correct "ITS ALL FOR THE L.O.V.E" You do not have to go to California and go through all this media hipe thats all it is, Please for Michael just Pray in a group or just by yourself He is aware of how much he is LOVED & MISSED, Save his Children from all the junky Media PLEASE LET HIM REST IN PEACE NOW AND FOREVER THE KING OF POP, LOVE YOU MJ
