JERMAINE JACKSON AND NAJEE ALI DEPART NEWS CONFERENCE ANNOUNCING CARAVAN TO SANTA MARIA.
Jermaine Jackson, the brother of singer Michael Jackson (R), shakes hands with Executive Director of Project Islamic H.O.P.E. (Helping Oppressed People Everywhere) Najee Ali following a news conference outside the Jackson family compound in Encino, California January 12, 2004. Using the Jackson family Los Angeles residence as a backdrop for the television cameras, Michael Jackson's family and friends said Monday they will bus hundreds of fans to Jackson's arraignment on child molestation charges to show support for the pop super-star. Organizers called the convoy a "caravan of love," and said buses will leave for Santa Barbara County for Friday's arraignment, departing from Los Angeles and other Southern California locations.
