Conrad Murray

Knotty Strategy for

Manslaughter Defense

9/29/2011 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928_fit_to_be_tied_launch_exd
Dr. Conrad Murray
is handling one ultra-important aspect of his defense all by himself -- picking out the snazzy ties he's wearing to his manslaughter trial each day.

Sources connected to doc Murray tell us he is taking a serious, yet frugal, approach to his ties -- sky blue and gold, so far -- choosing to stick with the ones in his closet ... instead of going on a necktie shopping spree.

We're told Murray has plenty to choose from -- the trial could go several months -- and he has two key criteria: no black (major downer) and no small patterns (not good for tv cameras).

Knot for nothin' -- but, we gotta ask ...

If he is dressing himself, he is making a huge mistake. Repeated studies have shown that dark blues in suits and ties sway jurors more in one's favor. The colors he is wearing show he has not gone to any 'Charm School for the Accused'.

and anyway, the main thing is that the trial gets down to the "trute" as soon as possible

Conrad Murray "Not Guilty". Michael Jackson is a drug addict among other things.

Truth    

OH F*CK, WHY EVEN BOTHER WITH A TRIAL. JUST STRIP THE DUDE'S MEDICAL LICENSE 4EVER... BETTER HE DIE IN POVERTY THAN WASTE TAX PAYER'S MONEY TO SHELTER HIM FOR LIFE IN PRISON. EVERY1 KNOWS MJ IS HALF RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN DEATH ANYWAY. SAY NO TO DRUGS, KIDDIES. TRUTH!!!

I have one question,and am waiting for someone,in court to bring the matter to the juries attention,Who did the physcial that passed Michael for insurance purposes.?Was it Dr Murray.or another Dr?Now Dr Murray lives in this world,so he had to know of Michael's past use of drugs,There is NO EXCUSE,for such a dangerous drug,to be given for sleep.and if it was needed every night,Michael should have NEVER BEEN certified by the Insurance Doc.It appears Dr Murray did not want anyone KNOWING OF Michael use of "propofol" which in my mind IS NOT "INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER,BUT MURDER,Dr Murray KNEW he did not have the equipment or the knowledge to administer "propofol?and was making sure no one knew what Michael was using.

I love men's ties and find myself tie shopping for my husband monthly but not once did I think about "black being a downer" and how the "small patterns look on TV" Guess I am not as edjamacated as Doc Murray is.

I also believe Dr Murray knew CPR,but asked if any one knew CPR,because what was on his mind,was getting rid of the propofol,and someone else could take over while Dr Murray cleaned the room.Dr Murray got caught giving Michael A MED he had NO BUSINESS GIVING,The only thought on Dr Murray mind is hide the propofol,and the amount given

Have such mixed feelings about this whole unfortunate mess.While it is disgraceful Michael passed away, who 'all' was truly involved. There is no doubt Dr Murray has his involvement,...what about the family tha*****ched him destroy hisself?The only one that seemed to have made an effort in stopping this, was Janet,...the other money hungry vipers who fed off monetarialy(sp) from his checks,...shame,shame,shame,....Jermaine and Latoya,...really? have you no shame? Don't even get me started on Papa Jackson,....the old leech.

What up all you emotionally illiterate, Nancy Disgrace following, irrational, rode wet, mental midgets? FYI, MJ was a drug addicted pedophile who suffered from an identity crisis and took it upon himself to OD!
