Dear Dr. Murray,
You're gonna swing, bro.
Just suck it up, do your 4 years, and while you're in there, write your book. You'll make millions more than any of us shleps, anyway.

-change was damaging the flesh and nerves in his face with surgeries.

change was promoting bed sharing with kids to pedophiles who were watching his evil interview.

change was wanting to hug murderers who were little boys, then befriending the murdered boy's mom.

change was arrogantly sabotaging himself with an mj worshipped, deceitful motherless home for his kids.
change was using his weddings to manipulate his young fans' thoughts.

change was hiding his drug crime from his 'precious kids'.
change was neglecting jordan chandler's need for a safe life.

change was slurring his speech after overdosing on drugs, and loving the sedatives from his surgeries/cosmetic disasters. too bad he won't enjoy another of his victims' destruction in court.

Jackson judge calls attorney's interview shocking


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The judge overseeing the trial of the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death told the lead defense attorney Friday that he found an interview his law partner conducted on the case "shocking" and possible grounds for contempt.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor told attorneys he watched the interview during a break with his mouth open because attorney Matt Alford is identified as a member of Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team and criticized a key prosecution witness.

The judge noted that Alford used the pronouns "we" and "our" to describe decisions about the doctor's defense.

Alford, a partner of Murray's lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff, was interviewed outside the courthouse by "The Today Show."

"I sat there with my mouth open" while watching the interview, Pastor said, because Alford was identified as a member of Murray's defense team, according to court transcripts. He also called the interview shocking.

Attorneys and the judge huddled in several sidebar conferences throughout the day on the issue.

Alford criticized a key prosecution witness, Alberto Alvarez, in the interview. Alvarez, a bodyguard for Jackson, testified Thursday that Murray scooped up vials of medicine and placed them in a bag before telling him to call 911.

Pastor ordered Alford to appear in his courtroom on Nov. 15 for a contempt hearing. At the end of a heated conference on the issue, Pastor said Alford was considered a witness.

That came after Chernoff told the judge to hold him in contempt and not punish Alford.

Prosecutors complained about the interview Friday morning.

The interview with Ann Curry came hours after the judge warned defense attorneys not to comment on the case out of court.

"I am serious about interviews and about commenting on the state of the evidence or on credibility or on the overall issues in the case," Pastor told the defense team Thursday afternoon, a transcript shows.

Alford is not one of the attorneys representing the doctor in court in his involuntary manslaughter case.

OMG!!!!! Murray simply does NOT have a defense!!! Nothing this woman stated solves michael's murder. Nothing stated by her will clear murray's actions. This is ridiculous!

Just repeating the same stuff the fans already know about.

They will admit that murray's guilty, but nothing is going to be done about it.

Murray cleared the crime scene, tampered with evidence and nothing was done about it. No criminal charges were brought against Murray and his pottnah in crime for doing it!

Can anyone testify what happened to Michael Jackson between the hours of let's say 1:45am-7:30am on 6/25/2009? Like who entered and exited mansion during those hours? What was the exact time Murray arrived at Holmby Hills?

Not about what happend after michael was found lifeless!

Continuing to avoid the question is very telling.

Anybody that supports Michael Jackson is clearly a pedophile sympathizer!

Michael was not a saint nor a priest. Not all catholics are like that. Michael was not catholic and did not support the Vatican's agenda.

....and Murray still has no defense!!!

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!
On the other hand, Dr. Murray is a good man who did the world a favor. Just imagine if any other average Joe had little boys over to his house for sleep overs in his bed and at the entrance of the room there were cameras to alert this average Joe of intruders. Yeah, average Joe would be in prison after getting thoroughly trashed by Nancy Disgrace and her followers.
A grown man has a secret compartment in his room along with security cameras outside his room to alert him of intruders. You have to be one emotional douchebag or douchebagette to think his sleep overs were "innocent"!!
Thank s Again for carrying out justice Dr. Murray, hang in there because you’ll be found NOT GUILTY,, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY!
