People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Big Problem

With MJ Surveillance Tape

Surveillance Specialist -- Alex Supall Testifies

Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray are insinuating ... the LAPD did a sloppy job retrieving evidence from Michael Jackson's surveillance cameras the day the singer died -- failing to make copies of crucial footage before it was erased.

The defense's second witness -- a surveillance specialist for the LAPD named Alex Supall -- just testified, he only handed over a few minutes of surveillance footage to investigators, showing MJ arriving home for the last time at around 12:45AM on June 25th, 2009.

As TMZ first reported, Murray's lawyers have had a big problem with how investigators only recorded a small fraction of surveillance footage from that day -- and demanded to see the entire 24-hour tape.

Specifically, Murray's lawyers want to see who entered MJ's house during that period -- footage that could prove their theory that evidence in the house was tampered with.

Problem is ... the cameras run on a 24-hour loop -- so, Supall testified, if the footage hasn't been transferred ... it's replaced with new footage and cannot be retrieved.

Supall said he only copied those few minutes to establish a timeline of when the singer returned home after his last rehearsal on June 24 -- everything else is gone forever.

It's irrelevant. Murray admitted to giving MJ propofol and the medics on the scene and the phone records tell everything that needs to be told. 100 people could have come in before and after, that's not relevant as it has no impact on how MJ died. Murray put the nails in his own coffin on that police interview.

There was a slew of propofol in MJ's system. How does surveillance tape from outside the house shed any light on how it got there?

It would not "prove" that evidence WAS tampered with (stating it as a fact). Trying desperately to poke holes in anything to create doubt. Someone could have gone in and painted smiley faces on the bottles....there is NO DOUBT as to who committed the crime and how. He is outta there!!

That video has no merit AT ALL in this case, very irrelevant piece of *****ty evidence. The fact remains Dr. Murray gave a testimony to the police which clearly showed his utter negligence as the attending physician of MJ when he died. He administered Propofol to MJ WITHOUT any other medical assistant around and it's a drug that IS NOT SUPPOSED to be given to anyone OUTSIDE A MEDICAL FACILITY and WITHOUT any medical emergency apparatus. He also told the police which was RECORDED that he administered cpr to MJ WITH JUST ONE HAND while his other hand was busy with his cellphone and MJ was on his bed while Dr. Murray was giving him CPR, again a gross negligence. And Dr. Murray also admitted that he went to the bathroom for a few minutes AFTER he has given MJ the deadly Propofol, again a super gross negligence.

Dr. Murray from the start was just AFTER HIS HUGE MONTHLY retainer and not after the welfare of his superstar patient.

Try as they may, the best Conrad Murray's defense can do is put lipstick on a pig & hope like heck one juror fails to see the pig.
