The real reason they have nabbed Jackson according to Indymedia is:
With world attention and global headlines turned towards the protests in the United Kingdom and the FTAA in Miami, suddenly a new scandal erupts for Amerikan corporate media to waste the public’s time with: “authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Michael Jackson on multiple counts of child molestation.” This debacle pales in comparison to the thousands of dead Iraqi children murdered by bLiar and the chimp. What amazing timing! Meanwhile, the world awaits the arrest of some real war criminals: Bush and Blair.
