Conrad Murray Trial

The Defense Rests

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

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 ...

What a horror to meet Murray everywhere on TV, on the Internet, in magazines, in newspapers and having to listen to his exculpating side of the story, possibly garnished with even more tapes he took from poor Michael.
I hope that's NOT what the future brings!
Each single time we've heard this man opening his mouth it was only crap that crossed his lips. How will I long back to the days when he was sitting petrified in the courtroom, in anxious silence. But well, it will be rather talking than silence what's gonna be golden for him. Hate that.

I forgot to say that at least here in Germany the public interest in this trial is not very intense, and my impression is that it's a similar situation in other European countries (please correct me if I'm wrong, fellow Europeans...)
Dr. Murray is here more or less Dr – er, who???
I don't think that there will be tons of money for him to earn over here.

Dr Murray is a person coward.
Because it does not go to put down ?
It has fear to fall in contradiction ?
Dr Murray received MONEY from MJ to be its particular doctor,does not stop being its assassin.
Dr Murray is guilty, and end point.
Dr Murray would have to say all the truth, it would have to say everything what it knows regarding MJ, and not to be on of the wall.
I love you MJ, God bless you, where you will be.

Hm, of course it could also be that Murray's appearance on talkshows or do***entations backfires at him. I mean, he doesn't pay for it, he's the one to GET paid, so he can't expect advertisement in his case but might have to face a very damaging sight on what he did. I don't feel that the public opinion is on his side. David Walgren is not the only one to master the art of cross examination, also journalists are very good at that. And objections are always overruled...

"The New York Post reports that Muray has been quietly pitching networks to do a do***entary about his story. He has reportedly sold the rights to a production company, which is filming daily interviews with Murray as the trial progresses. It’s interesting that Murray would be filming do***entary interviews, even though he elected not to take the stand in his own defense during the trial."

Unfortunately Judge Pastor didn't have 1 million to offer for conman to take the stand.
Conman his team need to get this despicable do***ent sold asap, before guilty verdict is in, conman have no means to make any money from jail and without medical licence.

They are saying that Murray is only doing the interview to raise the money to pay his legal team.
This might be true. I remember reading something about his insurance carrier refused to cover this case because it was a crime rather than a malpractice action.

If that is true, let's hope that Chernoff and Co. screw him for every penny. Doctor Whites expenses could be hefty too - $3500 per day plus expenses!

And Co-Starring are the Bimbo Girlfriends! Like that one ditzie Baby Mama of his. I hope that anyone who has an ounce of brains will BOYCOTT not only the station that airs it, but whoever plans to pay for it! Anyone with a pea brain and an ounce of common sense tells you that if he started to film this shortly after the trial began - for one thing it is not factual by a long shot! Secondlty, it is being made to protray Murray in a Good Light (Good Luck with that!). And Thirdly, asking for 1 million dollars (or any amount for that matter) is the same thing as selling your story as it were for Killing Michael Jackson! Blood Money! Hate to say this - But the same thing with Casey Anthony. Anyone who is willing to pay Murray Blood Money for this and/or a book or anything should be BOYCOTTED BIG TIME!!!

Murray had had his opportunity to tell the "trooth" by taking the stand - and he Declined. Now he wants to be made out as a Good Guy and get paid for Killing Michael Jackson. Hopefully, to pay off his debts. Well, let Murray's Supporters fork over their money to clear up his debts - surely their lives are worth it right?

I am praying that the jurors make the right decision and send the IGNORANT,IRRESPONSIBLE,UNETHICAL,MONEY-HUNGRY,IMMORAL,INSENSITIVE,COLD KILLER murray in jail where he belongs for taking Michael's life away and have his (what a laugh) "medical license" terminated.

Why would Dr Murray want to kill Michael Jackson if he was getting $150 000 fully knowing that his death would mean the end of his earnings he being in financial problems as alleged by the State?
