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.

Wow.....I feel the need to remind some people here that in this country you are innocent until proven guilty. Michael was found not guilty of those charges YEARS ago!! That aside, he is dead at the hands of a doctor who was GROSSLY negligent in his actions and KNEW it! He did everything he could to cover his ass. THAT is the issue at hand here. Homicide is a crime, period....no matter WHAT your feelings are about the victim.

***********************************************

I saw an online picture of The Pieta (for those who don't know, that's the image of Mary holding her dead son Jesus right after he was taken down from the cross.) In this online version, Michael's body was in place of Jesus'. I thought it was the most blasphemous thing I'd ever seen.

On the other hand, there are a lot of people out there who do believe that Michael had an unusual sensitivity and gentleness ingrained in him that is not seen very often, especially in celebrities. His music aside, he certainly did a lot of good in this world in terms of charity work -- much of it never reported. His voice coach Seth Griggs who worked with him for 30 years said that he (Griggs) often had to go into a bathroom backstage and cry because they would bring dying/terminal children in on stretchers and Michael would hold their hands and put his face next to theirs on the pillow while a photo was taken. Griggs said these sick kids could not stop smiling and seemed to come alive when they saw Michael. Obviously this kind of scenario took place over and over again throughout the years. Michael used his talent and his position to do a lot of good, there's no denying that.

Dr. Murray needs to do the walk just as MJ was forced to do in 2004 when handcuffed and booked. MJ never touched a child with anything other than love and compassion. Check out the website MJtruthnow which is growing larger each day. The hate mongers out there, please stay off these sites, no one needs to hear from you; his family is still grieving; go watch the film This Is It to see what good heatlh he was in up until Dr. Murray killed him.

'justice4mj' MANY, MANY 'THANKS' FOR PROVIDING US WITH THIS PIC!!!

That really, really touched my heart. Yes, he's handcuffed but the way he's holding his head so PROUDLY. Head 'regally' up, eyes up & ready to meet the gaze of the, no doubt, group of b@stard looky-loo cops on the other side of those doors. Makes me SO VERY PROUD TO CALL MYSELF A FAN! My heart couldn't be more full of the love I felt for this very good, decent, & STRONG MAN!

Yep, call me a 'crazy, zealot, lunatic FAN-ATIC' all you like ya mean old 'poo-poo face haters':). AND......yep I love & feel so 'oddly close' to this artistic genius of a man. A man I've never met or known. Get on here as fast as you can & start attacking & hammering away at this 'FAN-ATIC' all you like today folks and it will, of course, make about as much difference TODAY as it does to me ANY OTHER DAY:)!!

You all go ahead & find the tallest building & SCREAM from the rooftop just how nutty you think 'I' & the rest of those who dearly love & support this man none are. Yup that's right, 99.9% of us who have posted faithfully since June 25th(and before) may have NEVER laid eyes upon this gorgeous human being,exluding of course, the MANY, MANY, MAAAAAAANNNNYY pics of him 'I' and, I'd be willing to bet, quite a majority of that same 99.9% have stored in my computer 'photo albums'.

So y'all go ahead & find that 'tallest building in the world' to scream from & bash us 'FRUITCAKES'. We'll either find a TALLER one or hell.....just get us a plane & fly it across the sky with our own little message trailing behind ,announcing to the world just how much we support & love MJ & that that support has never waivered & has never been STRONGER than at the moment we see the POS Dr.Quack-Quack in handcuffs. WE ARE MANY & WE ARE WATCHING!!

So start searching for that building & get yourselves a really good public address system to 'weigh in' on just what a bunch of 'looney-tunes' us fans because what you all don't obviously understand is this:

THE AMOUNT OF BEWILDERMENT, DISDAIN, CONTEMPT, & OUTRIGHT PURE HATRED ALL OF YOU COMBINED FEEL & NEVER CEASE TO EXPRESS WILL NEVER, EVER EVEN 'TOUCH' THE AMOUNT OF HONOR WE FEEL TO CALL OURSELVES 'FANS', THE LOVE, THE SPIRITUAL 'CONNECTION', THE 'AWE', & OVERWHELMING SENSE OF PRIDE & 'KINSHIP' WE FEEL IN MJ HIMSELF & EACH OTHER IN BEING PART OF THIS POWERFUL & ABSOLUTELY AWESOME 'MJ-FAN COMMUNITY'. WE JUST 'GET' EACH OTHER & THE WAY WE FEEL ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON!!

Thank you so much very much again for posting this pic. It has such a powerful quality to it. The more I look at it, the more I'm able to see MJ's 'soul'. So ironic that although you can't even see his FACE; his HEART, CHARACTER, & HIS SOUL ARE CLEARLY VISIBLE:)

Who needs these ridiculous power games? LAPD and DA office should just do their respective jobs in a way that is least costly for taxpayers.

Those are your very own words Marianne. The very same opinion/concept likewise applies also to Conrad Murray.
