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.

____________________________________________________________

That is the most ridiculous statement I have seen on here and I have seen lot's.
Have u ever lived with a drug addict???? Or let me say A prescription drug addict... I think not...

She had Children to take care of...

If you want to hang some one hang ALL THE DOCTORS THAT WROTE PRESCRIPTIONS FOR MJJ OVER THE YEARS. They are the culprits here!
That is why this trial is so important...they need to put Murray away!!! Set an example for the rest of the LA and Las Vegas Drs. that there are consequences for writing scripts for Drug Addicts...

They do it in NYC all the time... It's about time LAPD starts rounding them up!!!!

WHAT are they kidding me only 4 yrs for involuntary manslaughtrer... michael needs justice and 4yrs is nothing for this so called doctor.. this wack of a Doc needs to be put away for his CRIME for good... He injected propofal and Left Michael unattended, he had no equipments to resusitate MJ and gave CPR on the bed, which every good doc knows that CPR are performed on a hard flat surface, this doc had no care or concern... COME ON! he also made some calls which werent the emergency when mj was laying dead on the bed, the first thing this doc should of done is called 911 .. WTH is wrong with this doc.

Also; I have to say: Murray is totally guilty. He saidhe only administered .25 mil of Propofol but all the anesthesiologists say that that wouldn't put anyone under at all. Compare that to the tox results saying he had a lethal amount of Propofol in his system? He is blatantly lying. There is no gray area.

cathy is morphed has morphed into a jackass    

And BTW...any comparisons of God/Jesus Christ...to Michael Jacksons life....are pathetic. ONLY MJfanatics and fans are guilty of doing this....fans 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.

While the LAPD is whining like five year old school children about who gets the credit for taking Murray down, I wonder if they did as great a job on the evidence handling and crime scene investigation as they did in the O.J. case? There have already been reports that LaToya and other family were allowed to rummage through the house before the investigation was completed. I'm anxiously awaiting the trial.

You are right, but comparing Michael Jackson to God and Jesus does make them look dumb.

THIS TENSION BETWEEN LAPD AND DA NEEDS TO STOP SO IT WANT MESS UP THE CASE AGAINST MURRAY. WE DON'T NEED TO LET MURRAY GET OFF LIKE THEY DID IN CALIFORNIA WITH THE OJ CASE. THE LAPD AND DA NEED TO WORK TOGETHER AND NOT GIVE THE LAWYERS FOR MURRAY SOMETHING TO USE AGAINST THEM LIKE THEY COULDN'T GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER OR SOME OTHER REASON. LETS GET THIS MURRAY HE DON'T DERSERVE TO BE FREE TO WALK THE STREETS OR HELP ANOTHER PATIENT AGAIN. THE JACKSONS AND MICHAEL'S FANS WANT A CONVICTION OF SECOND DEGREE MURDER LIKE IT SHOULD BE AND NOT MANSLAUGHTER.

By all accounts and police report and true evidence, the Doctor was not at the home before 11:am on the day Michael died. Question is : Who was there watching over Michael? Police do have the tape of the outside driveway area. somewhere in the mix he either left right after the injection of those other 2 drugs or he was called because-you know. Who was there? The Doctor is still guilty because he secured the Propofol, but who was actually there? Was it in fact Randy? Who was it? Versed is also another drug that should not be used outside of a hospital or clinic setting. Not the injectable kind.
Nothing is going to come of this, not at a trial. Nothing. He's going to come out of jail a very rich man and go back to where he came from. Michael died. This was not suicide. He would not do that. This was a convienience to expend a life that was bothersome to a few people.

You people are sick. I don't think that you would even take the death of one of your children this personally. Take a deep breath and get a grip on your lives. This was a singer, not Mother Theresa.

It has just been reported that Murrays attorneys are negotiating a deal with the DA to bring Murray in. Dat is da troot. What deal? He killed a man, there should be no deal-translation-they will bring him in under the radar.

Son of a B!
