Michael Jackson's Death Photo

Frightening Intentions?

It seems the prosecution wanted to give the Michael Jackson death photo a murky, gritty treatment before it was presented in court this morning -- because it was clearly touched up to look as daunting as possible.

It appears the photo is NOT the original pic -- because now it includes a tattered border, a morgue-esque green hue ... and the word "Homicide" printed over MJ's body in a grainy, police-style font.

The prosecution used the photo as the background for a slide-show presentation in court.

Compare the pic to a cleaned up version of the photo (below) -- is the murky photo more likely to shake the jury?

I have totally had it. I am not to happy and I am going to make this clear. I am a huge Michael Jackson fan knock it off with showing the pictures of him laying on a bed died. That is so disrespectful. He shouldn't be remembered that way. You people while he was here couldn't stop hurting Michael. Even in his passing no one can let him rest in peace. Find something better to do with your time. Remove those pictures and show good pictures of Michael when he was alive. That is the way Michael Jackson should be remembered. Have respect for his family. They shouldn't have to see this. Please have a heart.
