Michael Jackson --

Dr. Murray Set to be Charged

1/29/2010 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The D.A. is ready to charge Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson, multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

D.A.

Our sources tell TMZ that members of the D.A.'s office -- including Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley -- have already met about filing a criminal case against Dr. Murray.

Members of the LAPD still have not met with the D.A. to present the case, however, our sources say the deputy D.A. assigned to the case -- David Walgren -- has worked closely with LAPD detectives on the case, is intimately familiar with the investigation, has all the LAPD investigative notes and has already briefed Cooley and others in the office.

We're told Dr. Murray could be charged with involuntary manslaughter as early as next week.

good morning ric, ya know it is going to turn out bad for everyone involved i do believe. the haters that dont and never did like michael will not get the full satisfaction of seeing michael go down the way they think he should, and the fans will not get what they want and that is the full punishment that we as fans think dr murray should get in our eyes. the lapd and D A will do what they have to do by the law and nothing more or nothing less, so in the end it will be left with an emptyness that none of us in this world will ever be able to accept. i have said in the past no matter what the turn out may be i will always love michael for the person he was inside and the performer he was, and whatever happens after that is never going to change my true feelings i had for the man that he was. sue from tampa

Three cheers that Michael Jackson is dead but Murray must be held accountable for his murder (yes, murder). Jackson destroyed the innocence of hundreds of young boys all under the guise of teaching them about sex, he was a horrid monster that ruined many lives. Who feeds alcohol to young boys and then takes them to bed for days? Who keeps "art" books with nude photos of young boys in their homes? People that defend Jackson are blinded by his talent but he was a freak that had not accomplished anything in years because he was a drug-addled pedophile.

Michael Jackson: Who Will Accept His Grammy?


"This Sunday’s Grammy Awards is set to open with a tribute to Michael Jackson. There will be the 3D “Earth Song” from Michael’s cancelled “This Is It” concert. Then a selection of pop stars including Smokey Robinson, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood and Usher is scheduled to perform a medley of Michael’s hits.

But what hasn’t been determined is who will accept Michael’s Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. Jackson is to be honored along with Bobby Darin, Loretta Lynn, Clark Terry, David Honeyboy Edwards, Andre Previn, and Leonard Cohen. Among the winners of the Trustees award are Florence Greenberg, founder of Scepter Records and subject of the new musical, “Baby It’s You.”

As usual, though, the Jackson family is at odds over who’s supposed to receive the Grammy statue on Saturday at the late afternoon ceremony scheduled for the Wilshire Ebell Theater. Sources say that Michael’s brothers want to do the honors. But Jackson’s three children — Prince, Paris, and Blanket — have voiced opposition to this plan.

“The kids are tired of the brothers getting the attention. They want to stand up for their father.”

This tug of war has become a regular issue lately as the three kids grow more savvy about the Jackson family, and more aware of their own place in preserving their dad’s memory.

Meanwhile, Michael’s self-aggrandizing father, Joe Jackson, made little progress yesterday in his court battle to receive a shocking $20,000 per month allowance from his son’s estate."

WOW some people have NO morals. cheering for someone to be DEAD. i feel bad for you patheic people. Michael was ACCISED but never found guilty. he helped THOUSANDS of children worldwide and he cared about the enviornment. He also made MILLIONS happy with his music he deserves nothin but the best and i hope he's at peace. Michael would NEVER hurt anyone.

Harvey had addressed me and many MJ fans and said that we have held him up on a higher ground , and what we all need to remember is that Michael was an addict!!!
I, a fan of Michael am the first to admit that Michael Jackson, it would seem , was a major DR shopper.
Having said that, A doctor takes an oath to provide duty of care to a patient.
Do I think that Murray intended to kill Michael Jackson????.....NO.
Do I believe that he failed to provide a duty of care to his patient????...YES
Do I think that the dollars got in the way of providing Michael with the best care????...YES
Is Murry being charged going to bring Michael back??...NO
For longer than I care to remember, doctors have given HIGH PROFILE CELEBS, the medication that they have requested, more so than the medication that they have needed.
END OF STORY!!!!!
I am sure that Murray is not the only Dr over the course of time that has provided MJ with the medication that he craved.
However, if you are prepared to take the payment from an addict....to provide his drug of choice, than you ARE responsible
to take the Fall when and if those drugs result in death.
THIS IS IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Drug addicts can't sleep when they're maxed out on their dosages and need something stronger; MJ must have built up a tolerance to everything but propofol. Look at his face, he had many, many procedures and it was just to get the drugs... that's why his nose was almost gone and his face so distorted. Had he not been addicted he never would have ruined his face... but he didn't care because addicts only care about getting their drugs. Sad but true.
