Tension Between LAPD and D.A. in Jackson Case

2/4/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

LAPD officials feel slighted by the Los Angeles County District Attorney in the Michael Jackson case, and the cops made their point clear in a secret meeting yesterday .... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

LAPD and D.A. in Michael Jackson Case

Sources say there was a "high level meeting" yesterday between officials from both departments. The D.A. had kept the LAPD in the dark over the arrest and prosecution of Dr. Conrad Murray. In fact, until yesterday the LAPD was not informed of any plan for the arrest or surrender of Murray on involuntary manslaughter charges.

We reported earlier in the week that lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray had been in touch with the D.A. and planned to drive the doctor themselves to the courthouse where he would be arraigned. That plan would have completely excluded the LAPD from the process.

The D.A.'s plan was especially maddening for the LAPD because detectives in the Robbery Homicide Division had spent months putting the complicated case together. Inside sources say it's one of the best, most thorough investigations the LAPD has conducted in years.

The upshot of yesterday's meeting -- the D.A. and LAPD made a plan -- the LAPD will place Dr. Murray under arrest on Friday morning, handcuff and book him, then take him to court at 1:30 where he will be arraigned.

I don't understand you people. I'm so tired of your scathing comments. You are all so good at making crude remarks, judging, and saying such hateful and disrespectful things about someone who has passed away. What is wrong with you all?? If you don't give a damn about Michael or simply showing some respect to someone who is deceased, then at least think about his children who might read these things one day. They have nothing to do with all the horrible things you accuse Michael of. I don't know what makes you people think you're above everyone else, even the law, when you claim you know he was a pedophile and whatnot. He was acquitted of EVERY SINGLE account against him. He was found innocent in a court of law. The parents of the first child that attempted to extort Michael accepted money from his lawyers (which Michael did not want to pay) instead of taking it to court. You think your child was sexually abused..what kind of parent takes money?! The second extortion attempt was a joke and everyone who followed the trial knows this. There was no evidence. But apparently, all you have to do to ruin someone is INSINUATE something terrible and everyone will believe without giving it a second thought. The media manipulated all of you. You're all proof of their little experiment. Did you know that the father of Jackson's 1st accuser killed himself? Probably not. Because there was practically no coverage of this. Why would there be? You only care to read articles that criticize and spread lies.. Maybe you should all do some more investigating.

Murray is a cardiologist. What in the world was he doing performing CPR on a bed? Providing someone with propofol just because they asked for it? Administering it without a monitoring system? Leaving the room while his patient was sedated? Calling one of his kids to witness a traumatizing event? WAITING to call an ambulance? How did this man ever get an MD? What ever happened to the Hippocratic Oath?

No matter what, Murray is guilty. Had he had some ethics, or at least known simple CPR or emergency protocol, Michael would still be around. He needs to pay.

They were in it for the money    

Maybe this has something to do with Ca. State Attorney J. Brown. He put his feet into this case too. Maybe he should step right on in and tell them do it right, do it legal and do it above board. They are planning for an area for the news media. this aint no damn prom or red carpet ride! Wonder who got the live feed on this? ABC Via Sony via AEG. Sure.

Why was Conrad working for Michael Jackson?...period. Conrad is a cardiologist...Michael has no history of cardiac problems. One of Michael Jacksons children had a cold?....Conrad is no GP or Pediatrician. Michael Jackson shopped for his own personal Propofol enabler...found him...and hired him....Michael Jackson MADE Randy Phillips/AEG hire Conrad despite Randy Phillips protests.

#409 finally someone else with sense thanks for respecting michael and thanks for being wise on the details of medical professionals cause it really seem that people dont get the facts, and alot of people do feed into media hype not reading case facts there should be some kind of justice on the deformation of michael's charcter it is unfair to be so cruel and yes he is deceased and these people dont have any compassion i love michael and will always respect him in every way it is sad that his family has to go through this trial to listen to the liars talk it is also heart breaking that people fed into the hype that michael was an addict the fact remains that no other drugs besides the drugs given by murray was in michael jackson system no matter what doctors are saying all bottles of medications found in michael's home was full no pills taken no matter people say michael is not here to defend himself so all they say about michael of what he asked for or say he doctor shopped is hear say if you was facing 20 to life or exposure of your involvment in his death you would cover your ass to so you can't believe everything you hear the fact remains there was no other drugs in michael jackson sysytem that is fact so why are they taking other people's word is because they have it in for michael normally they would not take hear say so why now i think they are covering each other ass'es i believe with everything in my soul michael was murdered and no LAPD and the DA will not admit to it nor go head to head with Sony and AEG

This is just bad po work. Murray should have been charged a long time ago. He should have been charged with murder 2. This is a murderer and because of the po's ineptness he may walk. Maybe the fans can take care of it.

Is it just me, or does MJ kinda look like Debra Messing in this pic? It's something about his nose and his facial expression. I'm not trying to knock either one of them. It's just an observation.

that's bull! The police dept. needs to offically arrest, fingerprint, and book him. You don't just go before a judge until you are offically charged with something..they better not screw this up...they've had 7 months to get this right.

Ellen & BW, why don't you actually use some of those brain cells that are just taking up space in your head and edcuate yourself on the facts. MJ was a vicitim of extortion for money. He NEVER abused any children. He was not charged on any of the counts agains him. Not that you care to find out about the actual facts but you can read "Conspiracy" by Aprhodite Jones what was there through out the trail and a reporter for the FOX NEWS channel. Get yourself educated and quite feeding into all the garbage that the media keeps dishing out to you.

It doesn't matter whether Dr Murray is a cardiologist or not, his training as a doctor which is 7 years minimum with internship in a hospital means that he KNOWS how to do CPR,he's been taught more than cardiology for god's sake, it's just he chose this speciality to make be his priority!!!
For those of you wanting him hung by his balls before the media frenzied lynching just remember it's the same ignorant furore that MJ was exposed to over the child abuse claims, yet you claim MJ was innocent hm?! The facts are all that matters in court not this media hyped up frenzy that ensures no Judge or Jury will be totally unbiased in their view and for the legal system that's a dangerous thing!! Media hype and frenzy also affects the likes of the rest of us in the real world, not this celeb la la land, where in the end proven wrongful convictions have been handed down in a rush attempt to close a case out!!
MJ will always be remembered for his music, I have a feeling he was a very naive person in someways who was still a child inside, a child who'd been pushed to perform from a very young age, a child who never ever experienced the pleasure of playing with kids his own age!! Perhaps that's why he created Neverland in the first place, a playground for Peter Pan to stay forever young in.
It's pointless to rehash the MJ child abuse claims, it doesn't matter to MJ anymore and by forever rehashing his guilt or innoccence you're wasting your time - there are too many who believe the claims are true for you to get a motion through to have it whitewashed from his history.
MJ may have been a great talent but he was not the best of all time by any means, as for comparing him to Elvis well funnily enough at Xmas I was listening to Elvis singing Silent Night in both german and english, his voice sent goosebumps up my spine and I was never an Elvis fan as such!! You can't compare the two, MJ could dance but so could Elvis in his time and his hips moved alot better than MJ's lol!! Elvis had a voice that could sing anything, MJ's was more limited but what does that matter they were both great at what they did hm?!

Why do people keep calling Conrad the scapegoat when we all know he was the one there with Michael? People have to realize that Dr. Conrad Murray was suppose to be the PROfessional doctor and do the right thing by saying NO and taking him to rehab. Any Professional doctor would know that. A child wouldn't know that cause they don't know better, but the Doc knew better. Michael and Conrad played a part in Michael's death, but Michael is not here, and the other person is still alive to be dealt with. NOBODY is suppose to give drugs to a drug addict, never give in to their temptations, they need help, they can't suffer, they need the RIGHT help. If the justice system can lock up drug dealers on the street for giving drugs to a drug addict, then you know that all of those drug dealing doctors in Hollywood can get theirselves locked up too. Why the double standard? Teach those doctors a lesson for not staying true to their patients. I wouldn't give a dime to a doctor who would give drugs to one of my family members who was suffering like a drug addict. I'd get that doctor locked up too. Joe Jackson didn't kill Michael, those other doctors didn't kill Michael, Dr. Drug Dealer was the one who injected Michael with ALL those drugs in one night, he killed Michael. Stop making excuses for this unprofessional doctor and face the facts.

There's also some youtube videos that talks about men Michael knew who tried to take his money, those are the people that Joe jackson were talking about. Those haters need to start looking for stuff over the internet before they start calling Michael and his family crazy. Here's some videos that shows the people that Joe Jackson is referring to:
