MJ Fans

Shut Up or Beat It!

Some Michael Jackson fans who want to see their brand of justice meted out against Dr. Conrad Murray just got a stern warning from the judge's staff -- they'll be thrown out of court if they don't shape up.

Dr. Murray was in court today on some pretrial matters.  At one point the lawyers and Judge Michael Pastor went into chambers for a chit chat.  While they were gone, some MJ fans were staring Murray down and giving him dirty looks.

Murray then complained to the bailiff, who walked over to the fans and made it clear -- if they do it again they'll be thrown out of the courtroom.

When I think of the process I to go tears. If CM is convicted, he is free again after 4 years, but Michael paid with his life.He will never see his children grow up or get to know his grandchildren. But there is one thing that belongs to justice for Michael, Michael's honor and reputation must be 100% restord again. The media and certain people have to finally publicly make a statement lies and untruths have spread to and apologize to Michael's children and his family. There are still people that believe all these terrible thinks that were then distributed and that must finally stop. That would all be together for justice for Michael. Finally we have all but lost,a father,a son,a brother,a pephew,an oncle,a friend and we our Michael.In this respect, there can be no justice, but together we can honor a wonderful man who had such a big heart and for which there was only answer HEAL THE WORLD. Michael with love and gratitude, we will always honor you all over the world. I miss you.

BREAKING NEWS!!!!


Attorneys in Conrad Murray trial using Facebook, Twitter to screen jurors


LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors and defense attorneys for Conrad Murray, the Houston doctor accused of giving Michael Jackson a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic, have turned to social media to screen potential jurors.

They are screening more than 145 potential jurors by checking public posts on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and website comments in search of insight into the men and women that will decide Murray’s innocence or guilt.

"Social media is a big part of our lives, for all of us, so it’s not surprising that it’s also a big part of jury trials now," said Karen Hurwitz, a veteran legal consultant who helped defense attorneys screen jurors in the Casey Anthony trial.

Social media checks are becoming commonplace in courtrooms across the country. Hurwitz said she and others involved in the Anthony trial spent weeks researching potential jurors.

"Some people really object to it," she said. "They feel like they’re being investigated. On the Internet, the reality is much of this information is public."

Potential jurors in Conrad Murray’s trial were asked to fill out a 30-page, 113-question survey.

"When it comes to the legal system, anything that [is] online, either it’s supposed to be there, maybe it’s not supposed to be there. If these lawyers can get a leg up, they’re actually going to use it," said Michael Garfield, a technology expert and Houston radio personality.

Opening arguments in Murray’s trial are expected to start on Tuesday, September 27.

The trial is expected to last about a month.

We don't need their stupid melodramatics and stupid behavior in the courtroom... Glad they were kicked out. They should not be allowed in for a serious trial.

Good, maybe the MJ fans should shut the hell up. It's about time. Yeah Murrays no saint but then again, half the blame still goes to MJ for his death. NOTHING will change that, so get over it. They whine over a a guy that had it coming that's nothing but a celebrity and song writer but the US justice system lets a baby killer go AKA Casey Anthony. I think that story is way more important. MJ is insignificant so get a life all MJ fans. All you ever had was his records and that's still all you have now, so whats the difference?!

Michael Jackson fans kicked out of court for staring at Dr. Conrad Murray


In Session’s Jean Casarez was in court at the time and witnessed the incident. Casarez says that during a status hearing Wednesday afternoon some Michael Jackson fans stared so intensely at Dr. Murray it prompted the court deputy to remove all the spectators from court. The only people left in the gallery were members of the media.

Despite this distraction Judge Michael Pastor managed to get some work done. Jury selection was briefly touched upon in open court. Prosecutor David Walgren told Judge Pastor that there are a fair number of jurors that both the state and defense agree upon. Judge Pastor took the attorneys back to his chambers to discuss jury selection in greater detail, outside the presence of the media.

Before leaving for his chambers, Judge Pastor deferred his ruling on the admissibility of a study from Chile that shows oral ingestion may not kill. Judge Pastor also deferred his decision of the admissibility of "This Is It" press conference video. There will be another hearing to discuss issues with jury selection tomorrow at 4 PM ET.

So what was it stuper fans?

Was Michael Jackson mentally retarded or perhaps an idiot savant living in a Disneyland like place in his mind with complete childlike innocence not at all in control of his own life and actions but dependent and victimized by his handlers and completely ignorant of what was being done to him medically. Therefore he would be completely not responsible for his actions, correct? Or was he a normal well adjusted adult, in which case you can't deny, he had very inappropriate relationships with troubled pubescent boys that idolized him? (I'm not mentioning pedophilia here, just what he showed the public)

After all, you can't be both.

When faced with undeniable truth and logic, your arguments are invalid. Your hero is gone, and in fact was never worthy of your worship. At best, he sang a few songs you think could identify with or relate to, nothing more.

"Homosexual autohebephile" Look it up.
