Well there were signs of this because Joe is having a release party on June 9, 2011 Of course Joe couldn't have a party if MJ was on trial.

We'll this is that bumpy road I was telling you about.

from the producers of the jaw-dropping do***entary "Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?"

When Michael Jackson was falsely accused of molesting Gavin Arvizo they rushed his trial in 2005. Now they keep postoning the trial of his alleged killer Dr. Murray.

Disgust, yes. Surprise? No. A bit naive to be surprised by anything "Murray Team", Judge Pastor, or ANY thing J Clan this late in the game.

Hmm... so... Pastor is pissed off the defense asked for a TWO WEEK delay (speedy trial..LOL), so in answer gives them 3+ MONTHS. **snort**


Oh, and looky there... Murray "admits to wrongdoing" to the Nevada Med Board. WHICH "wrongdoing" EXACTLY does Murray admit to the NVMB?

(... written as if by some TMZ staffer. LOL )

Anybody...?

If he so innoscent he should not have to worry. But he wants to cover his dirty muddy tracks. I do believe he will just get a slap on the wrist just like every one else. Howard K. Stern ... OJ Simpson. It's just a big joke......I am not saying he's 100% responsible because MJ is also at fault but Murray is definately responsible too and should be held accountable but if all these other people could get off on a technicality why shouldn't murray be able to himself?? It's messed up laws and money that will continue to allow for people to get away with murder....it may not be intentional but it's still murder...sugar coat it how ever you but it is what it is.

"signs"? (do I really wanna know what the hell that's supposed to mean... ehhhh, no. LOL)

Interesting you write "MJ on trial", as I could have sworn that it's MURRAY that's on trial.

So... can't be having a trial while JJ wants to launch his fragrance line during the time that "MJ's" trial would be in full swing, eh? Sooooo... the Judge is now JJ's puppet, and JJ does MURRAY the favor of getting the Judge to delay the trial for MONTHS, because..... wait for it... JJ has business that's more important. That right....?

Sure. Why not.

BTW... just for the hell of it: What the hell are YOU on?

Seriously.

LMAO!

Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team now has all the time they need to put stories out there that Michael Jackson was a hardcore drug addict.The media is helping Dr. Murray clean his image.This tabloid article reports that Michael Jackson was addicted to crack cocaine.

Another delay in bringing Murray to trial is totally frustrating. If this delay gives the defense more time to "get ready" -- just remember, it also gives the prosecution team more time also to fine tune their plan of attack. While the delay does seem totally unfair, especially to the family and fans, it just might work to an even better advantage for the prosecution.

This is outrageous and disgusting! When dose the JUSTICE part of all of this start? if it were anyone else... that fool would have already lost his joke of a license and have been jailed by now! This all makes me sick... it will be Three years and we will have NO justice and NO action!! JUDGE WHAT YA WAITING FOR? Michael IS the victim here NOT the inept quack of a doctor! Throw his disgusting butt in jail already, take away his joke of a license ( Lest we forget He doesn't know how to perform CPR) And lock him up with Big Bubba and throw away the key!! Enough is Enough!! OMG!!!!! Hey Murray s***bag... if Justice system doesn't get you... GOD will!!!

******************************************

I don't like it, but she's not the only one who has sold Mike related stuff. If no one bought it, ...you know the rest. I think it's tacky that she keeps coming to TMZ boards advertising the video, along with her silly hoax remarks. If Mike is alive and the fact that she and others squawking about it helps his enemies in this life, then those people have to deal with their consciences. If Mike faked his death, he didn't do it for some silly little game and so some grown azz woman could get giddy over it and sell a video. Spokespersons have come out to say that the theories of MJ being alive are hurting the Jackson family. I don't believe the Jackson's support what she and other hoaxers are doing. Why haven't they vocally supported her and others?

LOL, let them try and say this because I have a snap shot of the court do***ent about this and it says "A forensic lab for the prosecution tested this underwear. No cocaine, however was found in the blood." so it should be fairly easy to disprove if the prosecution goes and gets a copy of the court transcripts. I hate how the media puts their own twists on things.
