Michael Jackson Fans To Protest Dr. Murray Hearing

8/22/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray won't just face the judge in his manslaughter case on Monday -- we're told an army of MJ fans are planning a little surprise of their own ... in the protest department.

A rep for Justice4MJ -- the fan group planning the demonstration -- tells TMZ that scores of Jackson fans plan to attend ... and it's all going down on the freeway overpass near the L.A. courthouse.

We're told when the hearing ends ... the protesters plan to march from the courthouse -- then quickly split for the overpasses as Murray makes his exit.  They will bid Dr. Murray adieu as he drives off -- probably not in the friendliest of ways.

But we're guessing the protest is the least of Dr. Murray's worries.

OK, Mike is not alive. Will you stop saying that? IF he faked his death, I would be so pi%^$% at him, I would never, ever think of him the same. Causing all his fans to mourn for so long. If he is alive, I want nothing to do with him. SO...he is not alive and if so, he is no longer someone I thought I knew all my life. But I don't believe for one minute that he is. Is it the "ghost" you seen on youtube? They did the same thing with elvis and he WAS DEAD. Hate to burst your bubble, but Michael Jackson is dead from an overdose given by a trusted DR. PERIOD.

I have read every comment on TMZ since Michael died. I am just amazed still how some people hate him so much! It takes alot of your energy to hate that deeply - to someone none of us really knew except what the media presented and what Michael wanted us to know....but, all the same, I have grown to love, respect the genius of this man and it will be a long time before we have another Michael Jackson type on this earth! Believe you me, Justin Beiber ain't the one!!!! I wish I had appreciated him more when he was on this earth.
Regarding tomorrow, I don't think it is going to be that big a deal, just like the other proceedings. One, two minutes it is over and they set another date. CA justice works very slow!!!!And the LAPD and prosecutors screwed up this crime scene right in the beginning.....I read an interesting blog the other day by an anestheiologist who really beleives that condrad Murray should and will go go prison for his actions as a doctor..Hope so!!!!!!!!!!

California Penal Code 192 defines "manslaughter" as the unlawful killing of another person without malice.1 "Involuntary Manslaughter," which is the least serious variant of manslaughter, gets charged when the killing occurs:

1. in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to a felony, OR


2. by way of a lawful though dangerous act, that is done in an unlawful manner or without due caution or cir***spection.

An unlawful killing arising from a willful act done without intent to kill and without conscious disregard of the risk to human life amounts to involuntary manslaughter.

In order to convict someone of the crime of involuntary manslaughter, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the following two facts (otherwise known as "elements of the crime"):

1. that someone was killed, and


2. that the killing was unlawful.3

California Penal Code 192 defines "manslaughter" as the unlawful killing of another person without malice.1 "Involuntary Manslaughter," which is the least serious variant of manslaughter, gets charged when the killing occurs:

2. by way of a lawful though dangerous act, that is done in an unlawful manner or without due caution or cir***spection.


Take, for example, the recent allegations against Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office charged Dr. Murray with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly administering lethal doses of an anesthetic (propofol) to Jackson while treating him for insomnia. Dr. Murray has pled "not guilty" to the charges.

When someone dies under any kind of "suspicious" cir***stances, law enforcement officers and prosecutors are bound to get involved. Police want to hold someone accountable. And often times, as a result, they jump to conclusions or rush investigations, leaving innocent people to defend against false accusations and wrongful arrests.

The good news is that we can help. As former prosecutors and police officers, we have inside knowledge that is invaluable to resolving your Penal Code 192 (b) "involuntary manslaughter" charges favorably.

In order better to understand California involuntary manslaughter law…and, more importantly, how to defend against involuntary manslaughter charges…our California criminal defense attorneys will address the following:
How Do Prosecutors Prove that I am Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter?
Penalties, Punishment, and Sentencing for Involuntary Manslaughter
How Do I Fight a Penal Code 192 (b) PC Involuntary Manslaughter Charge?

If, after reading this article, you would like more information, we invite you to contact us at Shouse Law Group.
How Do Prosecutors Prove that I am Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter?

The difference between other murder charges and involuntary manslaughter rests on whether the defendant was aware of the risk to life that his actions created, and whether he consciously disregarded the risk.

An unlawful killing caused by a willful act done with complete knowledge and awareness that the person is endangering another's life, and done with conscious disregard of that risk, amounts to Penal Code 192 (a) "Voluntary Manslaughter" or Penal code 187 "Murder".2

An unlawful killing arising from a willful act done without intent to kill and without conscious disregard of the risk to human life amounts to involuntary manslaughter.

In order to convict someone of the crime of involuntary manslaughter, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the following two facts (otherwise known as "elements of the crime"):

1. that someone was killed, and


2. that the killing was unlawful.3


Let’s take a closer look at this second element to better understand what constitutes an "unlawful" killing.

Unlawful killing

An "unlawful" killing can take place under two cir***stances:

1. when you commit a crime that is dangerous to human life under the cir***stances of its commission, or


2. when you commit an otherwise lawful act, but one that involves a high degree of risk of death or great bodily injury or harm to others, and you commit the act without due caution and cir***spection.4


"Without due caution and cir***spection" is equivalent to criminal negligence.5 "Criminal negligence" involves more than ordinary carelessness, inattention, or mistake in judgment. You act with criminal negligence when:

1. you act in a reckless way and create a high risk of death or great bodily injury, and


2. a reasonable person would have known that acting in that way would create such a risk.6


California Penal Code 192 (b) PC involuntary manslaughter is a felony. A conviction subjects you to7

* formal probation,


* a two, three, or four-year California State Prison sentence,


* a maximum $10,000 fine, and


* possible professional repercussions (if you hold a professional license).

I am glad the Justice4mj group will be there. And this group is a nice bunch of people so I know they will be civil. Michael Jackson has alot of devoted,passionate fans and will see this all to the end. He is loved by so many. I wish that I could be there but do not fly into L.A. until the 26th or I would be there right with them. I will be wearing my Justice4MJ shirt tomorrow. Mj, his family, and the justice4mj group will all be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. Murray needs to pay for his incommptence and neglect that caused a man his life.


rip mj - you are truly missed and will NEVER be forgotten
