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."

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

I can't believe people still believe Michael Jackson was a pedophile! ROFLMAO!!! People are so stupid and ignorant. The truth is out there you dummies! Go do some research instead of wasting your energy and posting hate while following these celeb dramas on TMZ.
For the record, I am not a Michael Jackson fan. I simply took the time research and seek the truth after the man passed away.
In fact, EvanChandler's suicide proves that no matter what people say or feel GOD has final judgement. Michael's kind soul and spirit is so strong, he will never die. Michael was one in a million (to say the LEAST) ... However ignorant fools are a dime a dozen and the world pays for your hatred every day.

um, no thanks    

One would assume had his family alerted the media about his doctor shopping and drug addiction it may have not only saved his life but most likely would have kept physicians from being so manipulated by him.
Guess no one wanted to bite the hand but they share responsibility on some level if you ask me.
One call to a media outlet saying we have a problem with Michael and want to let unsuspecting doctors know he has a problem and please do not be manipulated or tricked into giving our doctor shopping brother drugs.

Lots of blame to go around with this deal.

Um...i think this is really attracting blasphemous nuts! ARE U KIDDING ME? GODLIKE/ CHILDLIKE AT HEART? Childlike at heart means they have no ability to know right from wrong and arent responsible for any dangerouse/illegal activity...which this PERSON clearly did...if you have computers full of ANYONES pictures besides your FAMILY, u also ARE A NUT. Saying MICHAEL JACKSON IS CHILDLIKE is just another way to excuse his actions...and HE called himself CHILDLIKE before anybody else did...yuck-gives me the freakin creeps.

And Michael Jackson's death shows God's judgement that he was guilty by your own reasoning.

* Conrad Murray has fully co-operated with the investigation. And has repeatedly stated that he administered nothing that morning that should have resulted in Michael Jackson's death.

And BTW...any comparisons of God/Jesus Michael Jacksons life....are pathetic. ONLY MJfanatics and fans are guilty of doing of any other famous equally or more so philanthropic celebrity (and there are countless) would never carry their admiration that far....ONLY MICHAEL JACKSON FANS.
That fact alone speaks volumes in regard to the world's opinion of Michael Jackson AND his fans.
