With all those questions it may be very difficult to seat a jury but I suspect there will be plenty of older people who were not in Michael's fan demographic to choose from. Some of the questions appear to be negatives to Dr. Murray if answered yes, but if you look closer they may actually help him.

MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NOT A DRUG ADDICT SO THE QUESTION ABOUT ADDICTION IS JUSTIFIED ONLY BY THE FACT THAT MURDERER WANTS TO SAVE HIMSELF FROM TO ROT IN PRISON AS HE DOES DESERVE AND NOTHING ELSE WITH HIS OFFENSIVE DEFENSE!!!! AND THE FACT THAT JUST MURDERER'S DEFENSE WANTS TO CALL TO TESTIFY MICHAEL'S CHILDREN IS SHAMEFUL JUST LIKE MURDERER AND HIS EQUALLY DISGUSTING LAWYERS!!!

Not a drug addict? What do you call taking anesthetics and pain killers on a regular basis?

Michael Jackson's death was one of the biggest news stories around and was covered for weeks and months on every continent, every country, every corner of the earth covered his death, memorial, this pre-trial saga, his life...! How could anyone not know of this case and Michael Jackson? MJ tributes continue daily and have since he passed away.

And yet I just read somewhere that out of all the people who turned in their home work (lol) they found only 3 people who had not heard of the case. So are they telling the truth or are they (bri22)'s amish. BTW that was a good one bri22.

I was reading this do***ent this morning on the LA court site and I half to say that I answered yes to half of the drugs that were listed.

I am not an addict either, my neurologist & PCP have me on them to manage the symptoms of my health problems. I also must say that I am pro-active with my medical care. I tell them what works & doesn't work, what makes me sick & what doesn't. I ask question's & then research their answer's. I never take their word as gospel because they are only humane, & s.h.i.t happens.

If people never heard about Michael Jackson and didn't know this case, they either live in backwoods separately or dissemble to get to jury. The member of jury should be both modern and comprehensively developed person and know who such Michael Jackson and what difference of anesthesia from a narcotism is . That one, who knows less, easier is confused !
