Dr. Murray As 'Inspirational' as Michael Jackson

2/10/2010 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the members of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team says he's not concerned about the possibility of a downtown L.A. jury dominated by African Americans, because "Dr. Murray is as much of an inspiration as Michael Jackson was."

Dr. Murray As 'Inspirational' as Michael Jackson

J. Michael Flanagan tells TMZ Dr. Murray is a man of "humble means who became very successful" and a jury will appreciate that.

Flanagan also told us the defense team has received a summary of the official investigation, but he says the L.A. County District Attorney's Office has informed Murray's lawyers it will take several weeks before the D.A. gives them a copy of the full file.

ABOUT HALF AS THOUGHTLESS, IRRESPONSIBLE AND UTTERLY STUPID AS BEGGING FOR THE PROPOFOL FROM A QUACK DOCTOR OUTSIDE A HOSPITAL SETTING IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Murrays lawyers must think African Americans are really stupid. I don't. They won't take pity on this guy. Or his attempt to make himself look like a 'friend' of MJ's - why else did he show up @ the cemetery? Let's face it - that's going to be part of their argument - why would murray kill his friend - right?

I hope to God there is at least one RN on this jury - black or white or hispanic or whatever.

He was innocent as shown by his acquittal on ALL charges and the 17 year investigation by the FBI found absolutely no evidence of wrongdoing. Do you read?

HE WAS CLEARED OF ONLY THE SECOND ACCUSATION. HE WAS NEVER CLEARED OF THE ACCUSATIONS OF THE FIRST CHILD.

LOL...what planet is this lawyer living on and does he realise his client, using a drug that should not have been administered to a patient outside of a hospital setting, claimed the life of a mega star.

Murray's legal team sounds nuts.

Murray is inspirational? Because he came from a humble environment, grew up to sire children he could not support, became the worst doctor ever and finally killed off his most famous patient?

Some role model. Some inspiration.

WOW, THE LIFE OF A MEGA STAR. IS THAT LIFE MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY OTHER LIFE? THAN THE LIFE OF YOUR CHILDREN IF YOU HAVE ANY? BUT YOU HIT THE POINT ON HERE WITH THESE MJ FREAKS. ALL THIS OUTRAGE IS OVER WHO DIED, NOT THE CRIME.

bruising on his back, torso and legs, scatches on the back of his neck, a broken needle found ,needle marks on the back of his arms this sounds like to me as if he was fighting in defence for his life and you all are just reading over it ...

Not all, Barb. It struck me as a lot of bruising.
And I don´t like the broken needle. More and more I am leaning towards that it might have been premeditated murder.

In any case, I hope the LAPD do their job THOROUGHLY. But there is already this major blunder of not securing Michael´s house as a crime scene.
But wait a minute, wasn´t it Murray who refused to declare Michael dead at the house? The paramedics said that he was, right?
So that is not really LAPD´s fault - it is MURRAY`s.
+ he ran without mentioning the PROPOFOL.

Murderer.

Well, he is now. The first child, Jordy Chandler, made a drawing og Michael's private parts. The autopsy has now confirmed it wasn't a match.

And btw, stop screaming in caps. Looks stupid.

First the paramedics then the ER doctors were fighting to Michael's life. That's where all the broken ribs, bruises, needle punctures and scratches came from.

How about TMZ actually do some investigating instead of just collecting handed-down information? Why don't you all do some investigating on why, with all of MJs business mangers and accountants, none of them were doing their jobs but were still collecting a salary from MJ? Should the people that MJ hired to manage his accounts not be held accountable for mismanaging his business affairs?

How about investigating where his manager Tohme Tohme is, and what he knew about Michael's drug addiction? What about investigating why Tohme Tohme, after being fired by MJ, was still claiming the be his manager even after his death (even announcing MJs death on June 25th) How about investigating how Murray was able to post $75,000 dollars in bail, but was barely able to scrape together $1,000 for child support a few months back? Who is paying for Murray's security, who paid his bail, who is paying his attorney's fees? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but these are all legitimate questions about Murray that none of the media seems to be willing to tackle the questions.

Seeing as how the Jackson family says there was a conspiracy to kill MJ, it would seem that at least someone in the media would be investigating their claims. Why would their claims be so easily dismissed when there are a number of questionable things that have occurred?

Could be - could be something else. We really don´t know. Scratches? How can they be explained?
