Dr. Murray: Don't Show MJ Autopsy Pics in Court

4/7/2011 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray is begging the judge to ban Michael Jackson's autopsy photos from being shown in court during his manslaughter trial.

In a motion filed today in LA County Superior Court ... Murray's legal team argues the photos "will only unnecessarily and unfairly prejudice the jury against Dr. Murray."

They also claim the photos will not help the jury determine the cause of Michael's death.

On the juicier side ... Murray's attorneys also filed a motion to exclude testimony or evidence dealing with the doc's visits to strip clubs, the women he met there, and the amount of money he spent in those clubs.

They also want Murray's extramarital affairs left out of the proceedings.

The only reason they don't want the photo's shown is because when the corner takes the stand it will be easier for them to confuse the jury with the corner's medical talk.

If the photo's are present the corner can point to what ever he is talking about to make it clearer for the jury.

Murray's attorneys also filed motions to exclude taped conversations between Murray and Beelzebub as potentially prejudicial. Prosecutors reportedly will argue that they should be admissible as declarations against interest.

By the sounds of this he was spending **** loads of money at strip clubs and on women, his bloody legal team want to drag Michael s financial position into this, so lets hear about all his. Makes me wonder just how bad HIS HABIT was and just how much he was paid to murder Michael to support this . As much as I hate the thought of this I think the jury should see the autopsy photo's so they can all see exactly what this murdering prick has done. What a bloody laugh, "his legal team are worried this may unfairly and unnecessary prejudice the jury" well I don't think they need to worry on that score, as all the bull crap they spit out is doing that rather nicely on its own

funny how mj was the only person who was happily humiliated by family and friends, ruined by greedy nose cutters and a dermatologist, and then killed by a bribed doctor. not even transexuals do that to themselves.

Of course this quack of a doctor doesn't want those autopsy photos shown. Because if they are shown it will help the testimony of the coroner. I personally feel sorry for Mj and his kids and family if those photos get out there only because this man has been ridiculed enough. But if it helps put this monster of a human being away for awhile than go ahead.
And as for Murray money problems, affairs, etc getting used, I say to the judge "go for it" because you want to expose michael's financial woes but you don't want yours out there. You can't have it both ways quack.

How do you explain walking out of the room Murray after knocking Michael completely out Murray. Did yours or Michael's money problems cause you to do that to???

This man never ceases to amaze me what b.s. tactics they will come up with next.

No evidence should be off limits if it has a relation to the case. It is a judge's decision at the end.

About #28, PerlJr's comment. All these "clues" may have been planted by people who have interest to keep MJs name in the public space and make sure everything MJ generates money. Sure, I noticed La Toya's T-shirt talk, a certain frame in "Hold my hand" video, but all of that may be a marketing trick and all sorts of people can make a money, like by selling a book.

There is some silver lining in the whole story. People listen ti Michael Jackson's music and his lyrics certainly has something to say. Many seem to google the lyrics, according to recent reports and this is a good thing. People get to hear his message. I recently came across an interesting paper. Excerpts

.......................

After more than a year, although I am not a Michael Jackson fan per se, on closer inspection I have come to admire his scale of contributions and humanitarian messages espoused within songs of his. And despite my hitherto skeptical view of the sometimes frenzied remarks made by Jackson’s hard-core followers, I feel the need to say this :

To keep the American dream alive for our children, we should stop abusing our talented and creative spirits out of jealousy and misunderstanding.

..................
I speculate that there is a pervasive feeling that it is safer to say nothing when it comes to Michael Jackson for fear of being promptly stigmatized. However, we need to address the implications of such silent behavior. What does our silence about the attacks on one of the most visible achievers of the American Dream say? What does it say in light of the American Constitution's declaration of the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ? If we play it safe, we are forfeiting our children’s future into the hands of bullies. It is time for us to speak up about the damage opportunistic journalism is doing to our culture. As Edmund Burke once penned, “all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

imo, he went wacko because his sex identity was ignored/he tried to forget that he hated manly faces...
he cried as soon as he couldn't have girly-faced boys in Neverland. girls liked secure, strong hot men so he rejected the girls from his bedroom.
his nose was masculine as other men, but his brain couldn't accept that. there was no nostril left when klein injected his nose in 2007.

Poor misunderstood Michael Jackson.
Always his own self appointed victim.

He was right about one thing....
HE was the monster.

Whining, spoiled pathetic maggot.

I am torn. On one hand the jurors need to see the autopsy photos to drive home how horrific Michael's murder is. On the other, I picture his family in the courtroom and think no mother, father, sister, brother, child should have to see that.

he didn't give Murray a cent yet. So, mj made him fear that employees and the jacksons could blame all health problems on him if they were both arrested. Murray had to wait for commands all day because mj threatened him with an arrest if someone found the Propofol. mj refused to believe it was dangerous with one person doing horrid things to him. after all the self-inflicted pain and family abuse inflicted, who's surprised?
mj pretended he was capable of caring for himself, ate a lot and never weakened mentally after taking many medications and chemical injections. mj never spoke to him until at night.
Murray was ordered to hide dozens of expiring bottles away from mj kids.

And thats the truth    

Well, if they show the autopsy photos of Michael, maybe then the people that think that he is still alive with finally face the grim reality of his passing. I am sure it will be a shock to their system as I think it is easier for them to think that he is still alive.
