Man this crap is STILL going on here? MJ fans...DO NOT LET THESE FREAKING HATERS KICK YOU OFF ANY BOARD.

Look, the trial is getting ready to come up soon. Jury selection was today, as most of you already know. I have to wonder how many of the regular posters who are MJ fans, realize how many people read here. Either the comments or the links/articles that many of you provide are invaluable to those who don't have the time to look for the info themselves.

FORGET THE HATE. Focus on what is important to us fans and that is JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL JACKSON. As I look back on the past year and a half, a little over that, I think of how much I've learned and more importantly, HOW MANY REALLY GREAT PEOPLE I'VE MET WHO LOVED MJ AS MUCH AS I DID. That's because of Michael. He did that, even in death...brought people together because we knew, just like he did, that it's ALL FOR L.O.V.E.

NEVER give up that power...because we all know that the POWER OF LOVE is infinitely more OMNIPOTENT than hate. Never forget that, MJ fans. I know as we get nearer to the trial, that we all are holding hands, in the hope that LOVE will conquer the negligence, incompetence and blatant disregard that Conrad Murray held for Michael Jackson's life. After all, there's NOTHING that can't be done, if we raise our voice AS ONE. Right?

It is surprising that MJ is still popular. It is all for M.O.N.E.Y. and E.G.O. endless ego. I love you more, blah ... MJs fans are trash and bad a***es and it is no wonder no normal successful person listens to his music or deal with any of his antics. If that 'art' had a real value, fans would be different. They are aggressive, obsessed and have never done anything good for anyone. All they do is scream and no real good deed ever.
What is most disgusting is that the holy world "love" is abused over and over.
Dr. Murray is a the real victim in this case. I wish him a fast trial and may he walk out as a free man. Justice for people that have been harassed over and over by MJ fans.

Chico -

Not to worry. MJ Fans are still here and will continue to be. But most of us have very busy lives and live in different time zones and that. But like you said, I too have learned a great deal from the information that has been shared by many of the posters. And as the pathetic attempts of the Defense team continues - the MJ Fans will speak out more and more. Especially as the trial becomes closer.

And now with Liz Taylor's death on top of this. She was such a wonderful friend to Michael and his children, to Montgomery Cliff, Rock Hudson and others. I would not doubt that PPB are very hurt again right now over her passing. I remember when she took the kids to Disneyland after Michael's passing. Very few women in Hollywood are natural beauties - Liz was definitely one of them - if not the top one. And how she spoke out after Michael's death about Murray, AEG and the others.

All of Murray's Defense's Team delaying tactic's are not altering the facts one bit. The facts still remain. This will be the "Trial of the Century" and the whole world will be glued to the California Courts to see Justice done for Michael.

Say what you want, I really don't care. And as for the list of names you are so ridiculous. Never gone by Debra; not my name. Never gone by Chitaur that wasn't my name either.

Not trolling for men. And if indeed OhWell says I am nuts, which I must have missed, all I have to say is that *I* was the one who broke off the relationship because he is more than insane, he is a real life bonafide stalker who can't take no for an answer and it took the threat of a restraining order to get him to stop calling me. Make of that what you will. I have a copy of the email because I was saving it in case I need it.

I already told you guys what he does all day. His routine? Get up, stuff 400 lb face. Get on internet and harass TMZ'rs for a couple of hours before going back to bed. Gets up, stuffs face again, sits on TMZ unless CSI or Ghost Hunters is on. That's pathetic. If he thinks I am nuts he should look in the mirror because he's got mental problems too. In addition to looking like the Michelin man.

I have a job, I have my grandkids, my family and friends. I don't sit on TMZ like I did when I was a rabid fan; figured out how unhealthy that is. My life is rewarding and fulfilling. You might take a cue from that. And as for me leaving - in your wildest dreams! Sure, I get mad and say I am leaving but I always come back because I love you so (BARF).

What irony these two posts were put one after the other, Chico, you were out classed. Shame on you starting your post with foul language and then you recycle all the old speech every rabid fanatics memorised.

On the other hand, thank you for a fresh take on the issues by "I love you more"!

Yes, Justice for Deb and all realists who have been harrassed by the like of MiMi (the bitch), Daphne (the villiage fool), Kaz (the unmovable), Scott ( the toilet paper!!!), Paulette (the toilet) and Shareurwoodie (the big easy "C")!

Allied Pharmacies are distributorships. At the time Murray was purchasing propofol there were 3 Allied Pharmacies in Las Vegas. Murray only used one of them. After the Vegas police & LAPD & FBI searched the one Murray used, it closed it doors soon afterwards. The remaining 2 locations in Vegas remained open and the FBI was aware of them. The distributorship owned by the one Murray shopped at did not own the other 2 Allied's.

MICHAEL JACKSON'S PHYSICIAN FIRES PUBLICIST FOR LEAKING JURY
SELECTION INFORMATION

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
March 24, 2011 | 4:37 pm
On the first day of his trial, Michael Jackson’s personal physician fired his publicist for leaking jury selection information to a celebrity gossip website.

On Wednesday, TMZ.com had posted what purported to be proposed defense questions for potential jurors, a leak that Dr. Conrad Murray’s attorney acknowledged came from their own publicist. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said the questions were “bogus” but that he was concerned about how information on the Internet would affect the answers potential jurors give during jury selection.

Murray is accused of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.

Defense attorneys told Pastor in chambers that a media company hired by the defense had leaked six questions the company had suggested for the jury pool. None of the questions ended up in the final questionnaire, which Pastor earlier ordered sealed.

“It is an embarrassment,” Ed Chernoff, Murray’s attorney, told the judge. Chernoff apologized and said the company would be fired.

After the hearing, Chernoff confirmed that the employee was Miranda Sevcik, a Houston publicist who began working for Murray and his legal team two days after Jackson’s death.

Sevcik declined to comment, beyond wishing the defense well.

On Thursday, 159 potential jurors were sworn in and screened for financial hardship. Jury selection is expected to continue Friday. Testimony in the case is scheduled to begin in May.

Cindee -

Wow! What a terrific post! Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

Well, at least now we know that when Murray disappeared after Michael died - he was not only lawyering up, but got a PR as well - to try and make the A**H**e look so innocent. More proof of his guilt! I sure hope and pray that the jury isn't going to be BS'd by Murray or his Defense Team and all their stupid, lying, deceitful, manipulative, etc. ways.

Medical board reprimands Conrad Murray over child support

The California medical board has reprimanded Michael Jackson's personal physician for failing to notify Nevada medical board officials that he had fallen behind in his child support payments, echoing a previous reprimand issued against the doctor by the Nevada board last year.

Dr. Conrad Murray failed to notify the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners that his child support payments were in arrears as required when he renewed his medical license in 2007 and 2009, according to the California board's public letter of reprimand, filed Friday and made public Monday.

The letter noted that Murray's actions constituted a violation of California law concerning "unprofessional conduct," grounds for a reprimand.

A public reprimand is a lesser form of discipline doctors can negotiate for minor violations to avoid formal charges.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges in connection with Jackson's death.

Jackson died June 25, 2009, of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, which Murray has acknowledged using to treat his insomnia. Murray's lawyers have suggested that Jackson injected or drank a fatal amount of the drug when the physician wasn't looking. Prosecutors contend that Murray violated the standards of medical care by administering the drug improperly and concealing his actions after the singer died.

Murray is still licensed in California, Nevada and Texas, although he faces discipline and restrictions.

Murray's California medical license, issued in 1991, was suspended by a Los Angeles County judge in January until the end of his criminal case. Texas officials restricted his medical license in April, and Nevada officials did so in June, to bar him from administering propofol and other heavy sedative medications.

Murray's Houston-based attorney, Charles Peckham, said he and Murray agreed to the letter of reprimand after negotiations with lawyers representing the medical board.

Instead of arguing the point before the medical board, "we agreed to disagree and agreed to a paper reprimand," Peckham said.

Peckham said Murray's licenses in Nevada and Texas are still active

Murray's trial is scheduled to begin March 24 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Michael Jackson case: Judge seals jury questionnaire after blasting Âbogus information


The judge presiding over the trial of Michael Jackson's personal physician blasted a website Thursday for posting what he described as "bogus" information about a questionnaire prospective jurors are filling out.

In an apparent reference to a TMZ.com article that purported to detail questions proposed by Dr. Conrad Murray's defense, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said, "Not one of the questions from that questionnaire posted online is part of this court's questionnaire."

The judge has ordered the questionnaire sealed until after the entire jury pool completes it, and said he was worried that the TMZ story and a "tongue-in-cheek" questionnaire posted on a second website might affect the answers prospective panelists provide.

About 160... potential jurors were sworn in Thursday morning, marking the official start of Murray's trial. The cardiologist is accused of involuntary manslaughter for allegedly giving the pop star a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol. Murray's defense contends that Jackson administered the drug himself.

Testimony in the case is scheduled to get underway next month.

This is a great sign that the pharmacy that supplied the medication amd sent to a residence is finally closed. I hope that Murray will be sent to prison. I am a bit worried that there is some "undisclosed business" going on in the backround on Murrays end that could cause an issue for a fair trail to move forward. I am worried that he will be let go due to evidence tampering. I really just want the world to know that its not ok what the Doctor did to his patient. No matter who is patient is and what he wanted its not okay that he applied a anesthethic that should only be used in a hospital setting with proper medication. Michael's autopsy did not show any signs of a drug addiction that would of caused his death. The only medications that caused his heart to stop beating was the deadly ****tail of medications that Murray had provided to Michael.( I believe Michaels death is in the hands of this doctor) This trial is much more than about the death of Michael Jackson. The ending of this trail is not going to bring our beloved Michael back. I think the judge is asking for this trial to be broadcasted on T.V to warn other doctors of what can happen to them if they "give in" to their patients desires just to make a quick buck. I hope people learn from this tragedy its so sad.I just hope that justice will be served for Michael and his family expecially his beloved children. R.I.P MJJ Love you

BEVERLY    

TO I LOVE YOU MORE----This trial is not about Michael's fans,or your ****eye thinking,it is about a MD who took it upon himself to provide Michael with a dangerous and addictive drug"propofol"and who also knew,that med was not a sleeping aid,and did not belong for home use, also knew Michael,through medical procedures got addicted to "propofol"There is a BIG difference.between a doctor giving "propofol" durning a medical procedure(one trained as a anesthetist)than a MD GIVING 'propofol as a sleeping aid,without any equipment,or assistance to monitor Michael for any signs of respirsatory or other problems.In fact my belief is that Michael had died before Murray left the room,and he left to set up a alibi.
