Is Marlon Jackson’s Now GROWN SON Ruining Family Legacy w/6 ARRESTS For..

Posted On : March 31, 2016

Marlon Jackson’s 34 year old son has been arrested six times in the last 6 years and we’ve got the mugshots to prove it. When we first found this tidbit of info out about Marlon Jr., the main question that came to mind was ‘Why in the world is this happening to the son of music royalty, the son of the most iconic musical family in music history, the nephew of the biggest musical icon in the world?!!’ And we couldn’t quite come up with a logical answer that was justifiable enough to make us say ‘Oh okay, NOW I get it’…

Marlon Jackson - Arrest #?

Marlon Jackson - Arrest #?And then there is this one other mugshot, but we have no additional info on when, nor where it was taken, so we'll just call this his 'Bonus shot':We know things happen sometimes in the American police/justice system, especially when it comes to Black males. But now that I got that disclaimer out of the way, I have to be real with y'all: when you're dealing with a case of a guy who comes from a very prestigious family, like the Jacksons, one of two things oftentimes happen:

(1) They are being targeted by law enforcement for being perceived as the "privileged kid' by a hating police officer.
Or (2) They are in fact a 'privileged kid' who may be having a hard time building their own identity outside of their famous relatives' shadow. So they instead act out. We've seen many celebrity children do that- ranging from Chaka Khan's son,  to actor, Tom Hanks son.
So while there is an understanding for the offspring of these legends, at some point the kids have to start taking responsibility for their own lives. Marlon Jackson Jr.'s charges are all pretty much small change, thank goodness, but that doesn't negate the fact that he probably should reconsider changing his actions, environment, friends, whatever he needs to do to stop building his arrest record.
