Conrad Murray Trial

The Defense Rests

11/1/2011 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


1_kbnim51u_1_j3bda5sy
The fat lady is about to sing in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial -- because the defense has rested its case and are now gearing up for closing arguments.

Closing arguments are scheduled to begin Thursday morning -- but the defense won't be submitting any new evidence ... so if they haven't needled the jury with reasonable doubt yet in the death of Michael Jackson, they're facing an uphill battle.

It's also worth pointing out -- jurors notoriously hate coming back to court on Monday if they can help it ... which means there's a 99.9999% chance they'll come up with a verdict by Friday, presuming closing arguments don't drag on.

The prosecution rested its case over a week ago -- but while the case was impressive ... it wasn't 100% iron-clad.

So we gotta ask ...

The only chance Conrad Murray had in this trial ended when they didn't put 12 strippers on the jury.

Does this trial bore the crap out of anyone else? He's a horrible doctor who did it for the money and the attachment to MJ. The only interesting question is whether MJ was actually murdered by conspiracy because he was worth so much more dead than alive. He had no capacity to perform a live show.

Four gallons of propofol, that's enough to put the whole courtroom to sleep! This doctor is out of his f*****g mind or what? Notice how he remains eerily stoic and expressionless; he knows he screwed up. This doctor has betrayed the Hippocratic Oath; he is guilty as sin. However, Michael also had a huge responsibility in his own demise. Say no to drugs. The pharmaceutical and medicine industry are the biggest fraud.
Nearly 800 thousand people die every year in the USA from iatrogenic diseases (diseases caused by medical treatment - Physician-induced) As the Christ was the most famous victim of crucifixion Michael Jackson is the most famous victim of iatrogenic diseases (I'm not implying any parallelism or likeness between MJ and the Christ other than what is explicitly said in this comment, if you have a problem with that; it's your problem) - Also, say no to the numerous MJ' s exploitation out there. Joe Jackson is still pursuing to launch a line of perfumes with a professional crook. See the sickening photos of Julian Rouas posing with MJ' s kids, Prince and Paris, to promote his stinking Jackson Tribute Perfumes:

Based on the evidence, Murray should be convicted - but then OJ should have been convicted on the evidence. Sometimes these cases are won in jury selection so you never know.

The courts should do what the medieval justice system used to do: dig up the corpse of MJ, put it on trial for boy molesting and massive use of illegal drugs (among other charges), find it guilty, and then throw it into the ocean.

This judge is a real POS who just can't help to give himself another day off. Has there ever been a sinlge FULL day without everyone showing up and starting a couple of hours late, taking a ridiculously long lunch break, then elaving early? Plus all the excuses for another days off.
