Conrad Murray Will Show in Court No Matter What

2/5/2010 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray Conrad Murray's people just told TMZ they are ticked off that they are caught in the middle of a tug of war between the LAPD and the L.A. County D.A. -- and they will show up in court at 1:30 PM today to surrender ... whether charges are filed or not.

As we first reported, a feud is raging between the LAPD and the D.A. -- the D.A. wants Murray to surrender and the LAPD wants him arrested before coming to court ... on charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

We reported last night that things were so bad between the two agencies that the D.A. pulled the plug on today's arraignment.

But Miranda Sevcik, the rep for Dr. Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ "We are stuck in the middle of something we can't control." Sevcik, who called the feuding "insane," says "Dr. Murray will wait for a call as to where and when he will surrender" and adds if the call doesn't come he will show up anyway at 1:30 PM.

The problem for Dr. Murray -- if the D.A. doesn't file charges this morning, there's nothing to surrender to...

Stay tuned ...

FINALLY! I think that there is more then we know. Michael is dead, we have to accept that. But I think there is more then the story we know. There are things that they did not tell us. We will find out soon.

If MJ fans were a violent bunch, Murray would have been dead already.

I predict two years' jailtime. I don't think he deserves a plea bargain, but justice in America is strange. Brace yourself, they might give him community service or something. Law enforcement in the area is highly biased against Michael Jackson.

Hi A.B.!
I would be very happy if he gets 2 years, but I'm afraid he will not go to jail at all. I don't have a good feeling about this from the start and a feeling of real justice being done we will never have.
The price he's going to pay for what he did will be a joke.

Thank's for the link, Irene.

You know what the saddest thing might be?
Even if Murray is punished adequately – what I doubt – we won't be really satisfied. At the moment Murray and all that back and forth around a possible arrest is something we can focus our grief and frustration about Michael's death on. But the day will come when the Murray-issue is over, howoever. And it will leave us back with a big, empty hole in our hearts.

There could never be adequate justice for pumping anyone full of drugs and walking away.

There is corruption at the highest level involved.

Distractions
Lies
Games

Law enforcement could never get Michael prosecuted...even though they tried many times.
Certainly they don't care if there is justice for him in his death.

THIS DA NEEDS TO LET THE LAPD ARREST MURRAY AND BOOK HIM AND BRING HIM TO COURT. THIS CHILDISH MESS NEEDS TO STOP BEFORE THEY MAKE IT TO WHERE MURRAY CAN WALK. IF THE DA AND LAPD CANNOT CORPORATE TOGETHER THAN THEY ALL NEED TO BE TOLD BY A JUDGE TO STRAIGHTEN UP NOW AND GET ON WITH THIS CASE SO MURRAY CAN GO TO TRIAL AND BE FOUND QUILTY. SOUNDS SUPICIOUS WHY THIS DA WANTS TO HANDLE IT HIS WAY. THE JACKSONS BETTER STAY ON TOP OF THIS SITUATION, BECAUSE IT ALL SOUNDS VERY SUSPICIOUS FOR THEM TOO BE ARGUING ABOUT THE TIME THEY ARE GOING TO ARREST THIS MURDERER. THE DA AND LAPD NEED TO STOP THIS BEFORE THEY CAUSE ANOTHER OJ TO GET OFF FREE BECAUSE OF THEIR ARGUING. CALIFORNIA HAS A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THEIR LAW. THIS STATE IS PROBABLY THE WORSE ONE IN THE COUNTRY. SOUNDS LIKE THE GOVERNOR NEEDS TO LOOK AT THE LAWS IN THAT STATE AND WHO RUNS THE DA OFFICE AND POLICE DEPARTMENT. IF THEY BOTH DO ANYTHING TO HINDER MURRAY FROM BEING CHARGED THEN THE JACKSON'S NEED TO FIND OUT WHATS GOING ON AND JOE JACKSON DESERVES MICHAELS RECORDS NOW.

Exactly! Even if he gets 4 years in jail, the maximum I believe, this will not give us what we want. No punishment ever will.
That hole inside will never heal because Michael is gone forever and never comes back again, no matter how long Murray is behind bars.
We will all fall in a gap when this is over, I'm sure of that because there will be nothing left to fight for and that scares me.
No Michael and no case.
And THAT moment we all have to face reality and that might be even harder than the moment we heard Michael died.

Hi, Irene! Yes, I think we are many who share the bad feeling.

You know, the whole thing is still puzzling. How on earth could Murray make that many mistakes in one go? One of them, bad enough, but all of them? From start to the sad ending those hours in June, he repeatedly took the wrong turn. The only thing he succeeded in doing, sadly, was finding Michael's veins for his syringes.

I want the full autopsy out. I want truth drugs in Murray. What the heck happened?

Moni: You are right, when the trial is over and even if Murray goes to jail, we can never be satisfied. We want Michael back, because whether we knew it or not, we were waiting for a happy ending in the MJ saga: He would come back on stage, make new music, and be happy.

I still don't get why the grief is so strong. I was certainly never a member of a MJ "cult".

Its all politics the LAPD just wants Murray to do the perp walk for the cameras. Did Murray make a mistake yes, but, Jackson was his own worse enemy. Why is this such a surprise? Jackson was a junkie with fame and money and could get whatever whenever. This was going to happen and just so happened to fall on Murray. Murray should not go down alone.

If I were the LAPD I would let him show up in court and be there to arrest and handcuff him as soon as he got there.

Let's just hope they don't screw up the whole situation and damage the investigation. Hopefully, there will be some kind of justice for Michael. At the most Murray can get 4 years -it's crazy. His criminal stupidity and greed cost a man his life - regardless of who's life it was.
God bless you Michael.
