Dr. Murray Rally: We Love You

6/11/2010 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Murray Pastors from several churches in the Houston neighborhood where Dr. Conrad Murray does charity medical work are organizing a rally to coincide with his scheduled hearing in L.A. to set a date for the preliminary hearing.

We're told United States Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be in attendance, to show support for the doctor who is accused of killing Michael Jackson.

We're also told as many as 1,000 people are expected to show at the Galilee Missionary Baptist Church in Acres Homes, a poor community in Houston.

As TMZ first reported the initial plan was to charter buses and come to L.A. -- to counter the protests organized by Michael Jackson fans.

UPDATE:  Congresswoman Lee's Chief of Staff just called TMZ and said, "There is no knowledge of any event.  There is no truth to the story."

44. All a publicity stunt. They're all getting paid to show their "support" for Conman Murderer. Shiela, Murray, pastors... You're all going to hell. FUH Q!




I love you, Michael!

It can't be that so, they're all getting paid. But this not change the fact that Murray must pay.

Sheila Jackson Lee is there ONLY because local TV camera crews will possibly be there too. DO NOT get between Jackson Lee and any sort of camera. No NFL running back in history will knock you on your behind like Jackson Lee will do you in that situation.

Aside from hustling Jesus Juice in liquor stores, what did child molester Mikey ever do for people in low income neighborhoods?

My two cents ;)    

Everyone needs to understand Michael Joseph Jackson was incredibly rich and powerful. Michael Joseph Jackson was addicted to prescription medications. Michael Joseph Jackson would befriend dr's and wave large amounts of cash to lure them in to do what MJ wanted. He was an addict who like any addict manipulates others to get their drugs. Yes Dr Murray should be held responsible for malpractice absolutely. However, Michael Jackson took himself away from his fans and family forever because he would not let go of his addictions. Both men are at fault. Michael gave the bait to many drs and dr murray needed the money so he did it for him. No intention to kill his cash cow

Insomnia is three different categories:
1. Symptoms lasting less than one week are classified as transient insomnia.



2.Symptoms between one to three weeks are classified as short-term insomnia.



3. Symptoms lasting more than three weeks are classified as chronic insomnia.



Michael suffered more than three weeks with insomia and has talked about it openly in the past interviews. The average person can deal without sleep and manage his or her life, MJ insomnia was CHRONIC. Deprived of sleep makes people do things and think in a irrational ways. He depended on Dr. Murray to help him. Michael Jackson made bad decisions, but so did Dr. Murray and he was in a position of authority to help Michael. TMZ is hoping that MJ fans and Dr. Murray fans will insult each other. They the staff of TMZ enjoy it. The trial will be about expert testimony, Michael would hate ALL of this being the private person he was.

I'm asking myself - again - if it's even possible for someone to be as reckless and negligent as Murray, not once during that night but REPEATEDLY. He took 150 000 dollars a month to provide a sleepless person with this insane "treatment" - what else could he have been persuaded to do for even more money? I don't want to accuse him of first degree murder, but it's almost impossible to not pose the question. He graduated from med school, it's just not even feasible for him to not know those things. Even I know better, and I have no medical training what so ever.

Outrageous! This physician's inadequate ability resulted in someone's death. That's a fact. That, in and of itself, ought to be enough.



The jaw dropper is the idiots here that support him. They cannot weigh overwhelming evidence even when it's presented to them on a silver platter. Really scary stupid-taking it to a new level.

Jacko fans should worship the doctor,he had the courage to give Jacko what he wanted regardless of the law.
He broke the law for Jacko now he may lose his freedom just for pleasing Jacko.
That is love and devotion.

I'm surprised, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was a part of Michael's memorial service and wanted to have Michael commemorated
in Congress. I guess she feels he did'nt deliberately cause Michael's death, which I feel the same but he still was his patient
and died under his care. He was looking at the money instead of putting Michael's health first which was negligence. We lost the
greatest man that ever lived.



Love You Forever Michael
R.I.P. Michael
