Murray had to surrender his passport.

Murray will be in court again on April 5.

Michael is not to blame 100%! Maybe Michael gets about 25% of the blame. If Michael was paying $150,000 a month, then Murray should have given him top notch medical care. He should have had the proper machines hooked up to him and the proper insturments to bring him back to life. If Murray was truly in the other room doing phone calls for hours, couldn't he at least have an assitant watching MJ? Come on! Paying $150,000 a month Michael deserved top notch medical care not the negligent care that Murray gave him. Michael could have hired the best top notch sleep specialist to help him with his problems.

Sky news was talking to a lawyer in LA a short while ago. Reckons Murray could get just 18 months and even that could be cut short!!! WHERE'S the JUSTICE in THAT?????????

Listening to the factors needed to fall into a 'manslaughter' charge, he SHOULD be done for that - he was knowingly doing something that he KNEW he wasn't qualified to do, he KNOWINGLY did something that he KNEW he couldn't rectify due to not having the correct equipment there. HE KNEW he was doing something unethical - yet STILL chose to continue...........MURDERER!!!!!!

I wish the LAPD would do their job and ARREST THIS MURDERER WITH HANDCUFFS, PUT HIM WHERE HE BELONGS AND NOT ALLOW BAIL FOR HIM, HE HAS ALREADY BEEN OUT FOR 7 MONTHS.

We
are not sure yet if Conrad Murray will be allowed to voluntarily
surrender or if he will be arrested. We are also not sure what time
either of these will happen. But we are prepared to protest in the
event that he is not handcuffed then brought to court. "

Make
your signs and banners and meet us at the courthouse on Monday. Keep an
eye out on the news should anything change. And if we find out about
any change of plans, we'll let you all know.

Please invite
everyone who lives in Southern Californa to join this event. To keep
from overcrowding, please don't invite those who cannot physically join
us. Although their support is much needed, lets try to keep a decent
headcount of who all might be there in person.

justice.    

this is crazy, this man who claims to be a 'doctor' kills the greatest man in the world by 'accident' and the court is taking this long to contemplate whether he should be charged for 4 years ? he deserves life in prison for murder and being a jackass with a lame excuse 'it was an accident,i fell asleep'...clever

and why did he take so long to get help? 'i didnt know the address of the house' WTF

HLN was just talking about all the drama going on outside of the LA court house waiting for Murray. No one should underestimate the love us fans have had for Michael since he was a little boy. We fans will be there to see that justice is done for our beloved Michael one way or the other!
