LIE #2 – The Rigged Alarm Systems
The Michael Jackson Files – Losing Neverland To Lies
Inconsistency #2 – The Rigged Alarm Systems
One of the next inconsistencies I spotted inside (what I now like to refer to as a “Mockumentary” rather than a well-researched & unbiased film most of us would label as a Documentary)– was James Safechuck’s mention of a well-established play on the prosecution’s end—Michael Jackson’s DOORBELL, which would begin ringing as soon as anyone walked down the hallway towards the incredibly large, (2-story loft of a bedroom) that would notify the pop singer of any approaching guests.
He claims that the bells lined a series of doors which led to Jackson’s master bedroom which would then alert the entertainer to anyone approaching the suite.
Safechuck said: “We would get a blanket and we would lie it on the floor in the closet, so we could close the door.
So there were bells and you could have a moment of hearing them trip so at least you knew if people were coming for him.”
Rewinding back to the 1993 Jordan Chandler case, the prosecution Tom Sneddon, had also tried to argue that Jackson essentially had a “HOUSE OF HORRORS” and he (along with other corrupt members of the mainstream media, much like with fake news journalists such as Diane Diamond, etc.) had managed to drag the King of Pop’s name into the mud, as they made obnoxious claims about how Michael had intentionally rigged Neverland ranch to be his personal paedo lair, fully furnished with ‘abuse rooms’ that had networks of bells and alarms to warn him if people were coming.
Prior to Safechuck’s claims, SYTYCD dancer/choreographer Wade Robson, in his 2003 amended complaint, had also made the same claims about Michael Jackson having had an alarm to warn him when people were coming near his bedroom while he was sexually abusing children, saying the alarm would sound when someone came within 30 feet of Jackson’s room. Robson also claimed that Jackson hung a “Do Not Disturb” sign on his bedroom door.
Former child star from the 1990’s–Macaulay Culkin confirmed that Michael Jackson had an alarm system installed to alert him when people were approaching his bedroom.
The child star who was a long-time friend of Michael Jackson, said that the pop star – who died in 2009 at the age of 50 – had a system rigged up to a walkway which led to his bedroom.
In Jackson’s 2005 trial, Culkin described the alarm system that was installed.
“There was like a walkway kind of thing, where if somebody was approaching the door, it would kind of like ‘ding-dong, ding-dong,'” explained Macaulay Culkin, adding: “When anyone would approach the room, yeah, you’d hear this kind of—soft kind of alarm, like ding-dong’ kind of thing.”
An alarm system rigged up to the walkway is just one of the accusations that was being levelled at Jackson at that time, and I find it quiet odd and slightly amusing that the 2 main “Leaving Neverland” accusers—managed to duplicate the same exact story line (*cough-cough*) that the prosecution attempted to propagate throughout the duration of the 2005 Trials involving alleged child sex abuse victim, Gavin Arvizo.
10-year-old Gavin Arvizo was seeking medical treatment at a nearby LA hospital, having been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer that affected his kidney and his spleen.
Michael Jackson first met Gavin and his family in the summer of 2000. The then 10-year-old boy was in treatement with a rare type of cancer that had affected his kidney and spleen. Prior to Gavin’s illness, he attended comedy classes that were being held at the Laugh Factory–a comedy club owned by L.A. comedian, Jamie Masada.
When Gavin first got diagnosed with his cancer, Masada visited him in the hospital as much as he could. During a few of his visits, Gavin had asked him to introduce him to a few celebrities, one of them being the late Michael Jackson.
Masada agreed, and had attempted to contact Michael Jackson’s people on behalf of Gavin’s personal request to meet the Pop Star in person – based off the severity of Gavin’s illness in which the family claimed was terminal.
Once Arvizo’s cancer treatments were completed, Jackson invited him and his whole family to the Neverland Ranch, while giving the struggling family a taste of luxury as he always made it a point to have the family transported via a limousine.
Two years later, a then 12-year-old boy (along with his mother and siblings, etc.,) portrayed a happy image of Jackson to British journalist Martin Bashir during the filming of his 2003 documentary “Living with Michael Jackson” in which, the relationship between Jackson & Gavin, became very evidently clear that the entertainer had in fact created the relationship with Gavin solely in an effort to help “heal” him.
During the filming of the documentary–Bashir had asked Michael to talk about his humanitarian work with children, requesting that Michael call Gavin, (whom by then he had NOT seen in months by Gavin’s own admission during the 2005 Trials) in which Michael had then invited him and his family back to the Ranch, in order to participate in an interview that was conducted by Bashir, on how Jackson had helped him and his family during his battle with cancer.
The cancer was “all gone,” according to Jackson at the time.” They told him he was going to die.”
“According to Gavin, it was Michael’s friendship and support that helped him beat the cancer,” Bashir said. “They’ve remained close friends ever since.” Davellin, who enthusiastically stood in Jackson’s house with her siblings for the making of the documentary, later testified against Michael Jackson during his 2005 trial along with their other sibling, Star Arvizo.
Star had also claimed during his direct examination that he had witnessed Jackson abusing Gavin twice by sneaking into Jackson’s bedroom unannounced.
Star claimed that the alarms could not be heard from the upstairs suite when the doors were closed.
James Safechuck, who later participated with his own allegations alongside SYTYCD dancer/choreographer Wade Robson, had also made claims inside the documentary that filmmaker Dan Reed co-produced with HBO called, “Leaving Neverland,” in which he had also brought up Jackson’s rigged “doorbell alert system.”
Mesereau had documentary filmmaker Larry Nimmer film Neverland for the jury
Nimmer filmed an experiment that he performed on the bedroom alarms to prove that not only did they work, but they were loud enough to be heard by anyone who was in Jackson’s room, and he included the video of this test in his documentary “The Untold Story of Neverland”. (It can be watched in its entirety here.)
Realistically-speaking, the Arvizos alleged molestation almost three years later, in February-March 2003, AFTER the Bashir interview had aired, ironically (and quiet absurdly) while MJ was already being investigated for previous accusations made by Evan Chandler, an L.A. Dentist who had spoken on behalf of his son, Jordan Chandler.
The Arvizo’s alleged they were abducted and falsely imprisoned inside Neverland and that they were thus coerced to praise Michael during the making of, “Living with Michael,” as they claimed they were all under duress.
However, eyewitnesses confirmed that they left Neverland several times, they never reported any abduction to the Police, AND they always RETURNED TO NEVERLAND on their own free will.
Michael Jackson got charged and issued a warrant for his arrest on November 18, 2003 due to the allegations of then, 13-year-old Gavin Arvizo, in which abuse claims were made alleging sexual misconduct between him and the singer, during the months of February and March 2003.
In a police interview on August 13, 2003 Gavin said that his grandmother told him that, “Men have to masturbate, otherwise they may rape women.”
However, on the stand Gavin claimed it was Jackson who told him that.
This is important because according to the Arvizos’ allegations, this is precisely how Jackson introduced Gavin to masturbation in the first place–(the boy claimed he had never experienced masturbation before) and he claimed that the first act of alleged molestation immediately followed this statement by Jackson.
When confronted with the contradiction on the stand by Jackson’s attorney Thomas Mesereau, Gavin tried to get out of it by claiming that both Jackson and his grandmother told him the same thing.
What did Star allegedly see? Out of the four counts of lewd acts upon a child (that Michael Jackson was accused of in the prosecution’s final version of their story,) two were alleged to have been observed by Gavin’s one-year younger brother Star, but without Gavin himself being aware.
The claim was that Gavin had “passed out” during those acts of molestation. He claimed that the pop singer had allegedly given him alcohol.
Initially, in June 2003, Star claimed that on the two occasions when he allegedly witnessed Jackson inappropriately touching his brother, he had observed Michael’s hand on top of Gavin’s clothes. Later he claimed that Jackson’s hand was inside Gavin’s pants on both occasions, and this later version was what he then proceeded to claim on the stand.
In an interview with Sgt. Steve Robel on July 7, 2003– Star alleged that on the second occasion that he had witnessed Jackson molesting his brother, the pop star had his penis out of his underwear.
This claim later disappeared from their allegations and on the stand, Star claimed to have never witnessed any such thing.
On the stand Star first claimed that he did not see any alcohol in the room while he observed these alleged acts of molestation, only to reveal later in his testimony that he was reminded by the Grand Jury about how he had already made previous claims of seeing vodka, and then that’s when he conveniently began remembering the full scenario of the accounts (in-question) that he had already given.
In his interview with Sgt. Steve Robel on July, 2003– Star also claimed that on one occasion while he was in a chair next to Jackson’s bed, half asleep, etc. he alleges he saw Jackson get into the same bed as Gavin, as he began “moving his hips back to front against Gavin’s back side”.
The stories narrative had changed again, by the time the case went to trial. While being questioned– Star claimed that he was in the bed with Jackson and Gavin when this allegedly happened, instead of being half asleep in a chair next to the bed, as he had initially claimed.
On the stand he also did not claim anything about Jackson allegedly “moving his hips back to front against Gavin’s back side”, rather he said he did not personally witness whether or not he did (in fact) do anything that would be considered to be a “criminally offensive” type of behavior.
Also– in the original story he claimed that Gavin was wearing pajamas, and (once again on the stand) he contradicted himself by saying that he did not remember what he was wearing. Not only were Star’s testimonies contradictory, but there is another piece of evidence that makes his whole story scream of red flags.
There was much speculation in the media pertaining to the alarm system in question. The prosecution (along with the tabloid media theory) was how Jackson must have installed it to receive a heads up– should anyone try and enter his bedroom while he was allegedly molesting children.
But that was just the prosecution’s hypothesis, never backed-up with any receipts or ever proven beyond a shadow of a doubt—to be a fact. Objectively speaking, we are simply talking about a bell that rings when someone enters the downstairs section of Jackson’s bedroom.
There were often dozens, or even hundreds of guests, fans and staff alike– staying at Neverland, walking around on its grounds. Obviously molesting children is not the reason why an international pop star would want to receive a warning prior to someone (other than a TRUSTED member of his own family) from entering his private quarters.
Ironically, this alarm system that the prosecution tried to use to incriminate Jackson, ended up blowing another hole into Star Arvizo’s story.
Why was it, that only Star was able to walk into Jackson’s bedroom and observe Gavin’s molestation (not just once, but twice) without Jackson (or Gavin, might I add)– ever hearing the alarm and catching wind of the fact that he was literally being succumbed as a witness to this horrific type of abuse towards him?
Jackson’s defense team had a videographer on hand, named Laurence Nimmer. The defense had him set up video surveillance while they conducted a test (with the help of a Neverland Maid) to see if there was any plausibility with his statements. The video of it was presented at Jackson’s trial as evidence.
The video showed that the sound of the alarm was loud and clearly audible in the upstairs portion of Jackson’s bedroom where the molestation allegedly had happened. (You can watch the full Larry Nimmer’s test of MJ’s bedroom alarms Video HERE)
When Star was asked about it, he claimed that it was not audible upstairs because the door at the bottom of the stairway that went upstairs was closed. This was contradicted by Nimmer who testified that they had performed the test three different ways, the third time in which that particular door was closed, not only showing but proving that the alarm was audible upstairs in all three tests.

11 A. No.
12 MR. MESEREAU: Your Honor, I think we’re
13 having trouble hearing, hearing the witness. If he
14 could just talk a little louder.
15 THE COURT: Everyone seems to be hearing.
16 MR. SANGER: Sometimes you can’t.
17 THE COURT: The audience is all nodding
19 THE JURY: (In unison) We’re not.
20 THE DEFENDANT: Thank you. We can’t hear.
21 We can’t hear.
22 MR. MESEREAU: I didn’t want to instruct the
23 witness. I didn’t think it was my — it was
24 appropriate. If the Court would, I’d appreciate it,
25 Your Honor.
26 THE COURT: You need to speak up. People
27 right there can’t hear you.
28 THE WITNESS: Okay. 1203
1 MR. MESEREAU: Because some people didn’t
2 hear, I’m going to go over a little bit of this
4 Q. How many times were you at Neverland before
5 the Miami trip.
6 A. I don’t know exactly.
7 Q. Approximately.
8 A. I don’t know exactly.
9 Q. I’m just asking if you can estimate.
10 A. Ten.
11 Q. Ten. And of those ten trips, how many do
12 you think Michael was present at. I’m talking about
13 the trips before you went to Miami.
14 A. I don’t know. I know it was more than
16 Q. Okay. When did you first learn there was an
17 alarm system when you entered the hallway to go to
18 Michael Jackson’s bedroom.
19 A. First time we entered his bedroom.
20 Q. And approximately when was that, if you
22 A. I don’t know.
23 Q. And did you see Michael Jackson do anything
24 to the alarm system —
25 A. No.
26 Q. — when you first entered his bedroom.
27 A. No.
28 Q. So it went off, didn’t it. 1204
1 A. What.
2 Q. When you first entered Michael Jackson’s
3 bedroom, the alarm system in the hallway went off,
5 A. The bell.
6 Q. The bell that is an alarm system, right.
7 A. I didn’t think it was an alarm system.
8 Q. You didn’t think the bell that went off when
9 you entered the hallway was an alarm system.
10 A. Well, because I’m thinking, like, an alarm,
12 Q. But you knew it was an electric bell,
14 A. Yes.
15 Q. And you knew anytime you entered that
16 hallway it went off, right.
17 A. Yes.
18 Q. When you first went into the hallway, you
19 heard that bell, didn’t you.
20 A. Yes.
21 Q. You never saw Michael Jackson dismantle that
22 system, did you.
23 A. No.
24 Q. In fact, every time you’ve walked into that
25 hallway to go into Michael Jackson’s bedroom, that
26 bell has rung, right.
27 MR. SNEDDON: I’m going to object, asked and
28 answered. 1205
1 MR. MESEREAU: I didn’t — excuse me, Your
2 Honor, I don’t think I’ve ever asked that question.
3 THE COURT: Overruled.
4 THE WITNESS: Repeat the question.
5 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: Sure. Every time you —
6 THE COURT: I’ll have the court reporter
7 repeat it.
8 MR. MESEREAU: I’m sorry.
9 (Record read.)
10 THE WITNESS: Yes.
11 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: Now, during the two times
12 you claim you saw Michael Jackson touch your brother
13 in bed, that bell went off, didn’t it.
14 A. Yes.
15 Q. When you walk into the hallway, Mr. Arvizo,
16 is there another alarm system.
17 A. Which hallway.
18 Q. The hallway going into Mr. Jackson’s
19 bedroom. Once you go through the hallway, the bell
20 goes off, right.
21 A. Yes.
22 Q. And when you try to go into Michael
23 Jackson’s bedroom upstairs, is there any other
25 A. No.
26 Q. Have you ever had heard of there being
27 another alarm that goes off as you try to enter
28 Michael Jackson’s bedroom. 1206
1 A. No.
2 Q. Okay. You’re aware that if you’re in
3 Michael Jackson’s bedroom upstairs, you can hear
4 that bell.
5 A. When the doors are open.
6 Q. Pardon me.
7 A. When the doors are open.
8 Q. Well, the purpose of it is to let Michael
9 Jackson know, if he’s upstairs, if anybody’s come
10 into the hallway, isn’t it.
11 MR. SNEDDON: I’m going to object to that.
12 Calls for speculation on the part of this witness.
13 THE COURT: Sustained.
14 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: Mr. Arvizo, did Mr.
15 Jackson ever tell you that the reason that alarm
16 system goes off is to let him know if anyone is
17 trying to enter his bedroom.
18 A. No.
19 Q. So you were not aware of that.
20 A. No.
21 Q. Okay. You have heard that alarm system go
22 off when you were upstairs, haven’t you.
23 A. When the doors open.
24 Q. Yes. You’re saying when the door’s closed,
25 Michael Jackson can’t hear the alarm system.
26 A. No.
27 Q. Is that what you’re saying.
28 A. Yes. 1207
The Arvizo’s also made claims that Star had been inappropriately touched by Jackson.
The claim was that while at Neverland, Star was in a golf cart with Jackson, as the entertainer had his hand on top of his pants, inappropriately touching his penis and his bottom area. As their allegations continued, that claim specifically had died down so much so, that by the time he was on the stand, Star had even failed to mention that the King of Pop had allegedly touched him inappropriately.
Authorities in Santa Barbara, California, charged Jackson with child sexual abuse, giving intoxicating substances to a minor to facilitate child sexual abuse, conspiracy to cover up the crimes, and more. The entertainer was also charged with partaking in lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14 based on allegations Arvizo would subsequently make later. Jackson’ was officially taken to trial in 2005.
Comedian’s Chris Tucker, George Lopez, and late-night talk show host Jay Leno, all testified against the Arvizo’s, as they all claim to have either been heavily manipulated and/or subsequently used for financial gain.
Larry King also testified under oath in regard to labeling Janet Arvizo as a psychopath who was only after MONEY.
Comedian George Lopez testified that the Arvizos falsely accused him of stealing $300 from Gavin’s wallet. He also he said that Gavin’s father, David Arvizo, was an extortionist.
Jay Leno testified that Gavin kept calling him and praising him lavishly, calling him his hero, but Jay said that he sounded ‘’scripted’’ and ‘’rehearsed’’ , thus deciding to cease communication. He said that even though Gavin didn’t ask him for any money– it seemed odd to him that a 12-year-old boy would idolize a 50-year-old comedian.
Chris Tucker also testified that both Gavin and his brother Star were very cunning kids for their ages and that he began to feel as though that Gavin had manipulated his illness for material gain. He specifically said that he felt he had to check Star’s pockets before he left his house because he feared he might have stolen money from him.
The Arvizos were indeed caught shoplifting at a JCPENNEY and their mother later alleged she was sexually harassed by JC PENNEY security guards at a public parking lot in broad daylight.
Janet Arvizo got awarded a $152,000 settlement from JCPENNEY. Upon receiving it, she then turned around and applied for governmental assistance under false pretenses, as she neglected to mention the settlement money whenever she filled out the paperwork. The reality is– she didn’t qualify for it. She was caught and convicted of welfare fraud back in 2006, so let’s not forget that she invoked the 5th amendment during the 2005 trial.
In a nutshell: The Arvizos were known inside the Hollywood circle as people who maliciously targeted celebrities , exploited people and then would find themselves lying UNDER oath about those things.
