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 children owe me a gift of thanks I saved their innocents
Michael Jackson was my friend but you all know what he did to little boys he liked.
Please try to understand I could not just stand by and do nothing while this disturbed individual had his way with children.

Thank You for your love & support.
Dr.Conrad Murray.

I think Murray got on a plane from Vegas to Texas to run that clinic because he was probably bilking Medicaid...
running some kind of scam.
That seems more his nature to me...
Thats why sending propaful to his girlfriends apartment didnt seem like such a stretch to him..
I dont think that is somehting MJ suggested..I think that was a solution Murray came up with all on his own.And of course his girlfriend , and her instrument had no problem with it because these two were cut from the same cloth..
most any honest doctor would have really had a issue of conscious over that as it would ring a bell in your head ..it is wrong..
I dont think those strippers are hanging around him because he is some caring doctor...probably writing scripts for them , throwing MJ name and ca***** them too...
At first when he was supposedly trying to decide if he should testify, I thought that was a ruse because he would get killed on cross examination..But the more of see of this arrogant narcissist, maybe he was considering it , as he seems supremely confident when interviewed by people on the street or his famous youtube statement...
I dont think he cares one bit his incompetence left three children orphaned and the world mourning the lost of a brilliant artist and great humanitarian..
He seemed more concerned about the police possibly having to break into his car , then Paris SUPPOSEDLY saying she was an orphan and will never see her father again...
What a jerk..

There were a couple of good points brought up on In Session today, one by one of the defense attorneys they have on the show and one by a caller who is a nurse. The attorney stated that when Ms. Lee was on the stand she mentioned Michael asked for propofol on Easter which was on April 9th or 12th (I think), where as it was found that a shipment had already been received at Murray's girlfriend's apartment on April 6th. So they don't know why MJ would have to ask her for propofol if Murray had already obliged. And the nurse spoke about why the prosecution didn't harp on the defense's theory of Michael injecting himself by wondering how it is that since propofol takes affect so quickly (within 2 or 3 seconds is what has been demonstrated on many of these news shows) why didn't MJ still have the syringe stuck in him when Murray came in and found him unresponsive?

Dr. Conrad Murray Shopping Do***entary Film


Just hours before closing arguments in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, a do***entary about the embattled physician is being shopped to networks.

Murray, who faces up to four years in prison in the death of Michael Jackson, has been a part of filming the do***entary since being charged earlier this year.

Dr. Murray, as we know, has decided not to take the stand at his trial, but has given long in depth interviews to the film crew ... for whatever that's worth.

"This project has been in the works since Murray's arrest," says a source. "It was originally conceived to help him get his reputation back following the case."

"However, another primary driving force of it is to generate money so that Murray can pay his lawyers and experts," the source close to Murray confided.

The N.Y. Post broke the story and says Dr. Conrad Murray is hoping the do***entary will earn at least a million dollars. That may be wishful thinking.

Our source says, "Dr. Murray and his lawyers were hoping it would sell for a million, but it looks like the max a network would pay is around $250K."

If Dr. Murray is convicted, that price could go up ... or down.

Closing arguments are set to begin tomorrow morning at 9.

Aawww, can that be true??
.
Really, good old Joe Jackson is not my hero, but before Murray cashes in that money I hope Joe will win his wrongful death lawsuit big time and carry each single one of these dollars home!
.
Or may this do***entation just earn a big yawning from all TV stations and end up for free on youtube, with three poor viewers – Murray and Murray and Murray.
.
That makes me sick!

It figures that this ******* would try to make something like that! But anyone with a pea brain would no*****ch it, be4cause it is obvious that it won't be factual by a long shot! It would be done to put Murray in a good light. This just makes me sick as Hell! I truly hope that whoever chooses to do this do***entary is boycotted BIG TIME! And I fail to understand why any station would pay him that kind of money for something such as this. Hate to compare it to Casey Anthony - but it would be Blood Money paid to Murray for killing Michael Jackson! And I am ready to BOYCOTT anything Murray does to try and profit from this this! JMO
