The LAPD couldn't be happier with today's guilty verdict in the Conrad Murray manslaughter trial -- telling TMZ, the verdict represents a "victory " in the eyes of law enforcement.

A rep for the LAPD issued the statement -- claiming, the department "applauded" the jury's verdict.

According to the rep, "Today's verdict of guilty is confirmation that the combined efforts of our investigators, criminalists, Coroner investigators and the District Attorney's Office were sound."

The rep adds, "The investigators have worked diligently on this case and were confident throughout the process that the investigation supported the allegation of involuntary manslaughter."

Great job a-holes, you couldn't convict a child molester Twice, having the fact that little boys could accurately describe this worm hotel's penis, but you got this guy! Congrats!

I was just going to echo what the others wrote. It's too bad the LAPD couldn't convict a pedophile. Oh well, Murray took care of that. It's too bad he didn't get away with it, considering everything MJ got away with in his lifetime.

lapd let a predator free    


-Michael Jackson was thrice accused of child molestation (Chandler, Francia, Arvizo)


-Michael Jackson settled his 1st case for $25 million after a 13-yr-old boy accurately drew a detailed description of his genitals...including marks that can only be seen during an erection.


-Michael Jackson had an alarm system for his bedroom that would go off when someone was approaching.


-Michael Jackson had a 2nd hidden bedroom within his main bedroom.


-Three different types of semen were found on Michael Jackson's mattress--one belonged to him, and the two others belonged to different males. A fourth sample of semen was found in Michael's bedsheets, and a fifth on a size small pair of underwear stored in a bag with Michael's own soiled underwear. No female DNA was detected.


-During the raid, police discovered that Michael Jackson had multiple books of nude children including "Boys Will be Boys", which is an extremely explicit book of young boys in erotic poses (this was locked in a filing cabinet in his room)


-Michael Jackson owned a nude photo of his pubescent friend Jonathan Spence...a boy he shared his bed with for years.


Anyone who still doesn't realize that he was a child predator is an idiot.

Too bad Dr. Murray didn't wean Michael Jackson off strong drugs and put him on medical marijuana! Jackson would have felt better, slept better, and still been alive today.
Great book on medical marijuana: MARIJUANA - Guide to Buying, Growing, Harvesting, and Making Medical Marijuana Oil and Delicious Chocolates to Treat Pain and Ailments by Mary Bendis. This book has great recipe for marijuana oil and tasty, yummy chocolates! http://bit.ly/obHfCy http://bit.ly/oYO1N6

for real    

I believe Dr. Murray got caught up with pleasing an american icon singer and all that comes with that. MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A DRUG ADDICT. That is the bottom line. His family and friends knew that. The family can say what they want but, he truly was a DRUG ADDICT. Unfortunately, Dr. Murray was the last person providing Michael Jackson with the drugs he needed.

If he is in jail so should be all the docs that prescribed meds to the numerous celebrity prescription overdoses that happen all the time. Jackson was a severe addict, and would have killed himself eventually if Murray were around or not.

They actually handcuffed Murray! Brilliant! I'm so glad it happened. I'm going to keep my word and leave this gastly demonic website after today and never return. I must say the hateful remarks about Michael have touched me to the core. I was saving this final post for the culprits and the crooked system that I truly believed was going to let murray go free despite the evidence. No surprise that
Fools have instantly diverted to talking about child molestation because they cannot defend murray. Only an idiot would think he's scored major points knowing the DA's office photographed Michael's penis, showed the teen the pictures and still got the information wrong. I mean really??? People who work in the industry know that an evidence kit should have been used on the teen to collect irrefutable evidence. Each time authorities went for cir****tantial evidence instead of verifiable undeniable proof.
Anyhoo Murray was handcuffed.....'BOUT *** time!!!


The story of Michael's last day of life has been re-written and in some cases wiped clean off the web. Thankfully I saved a great deal of the information from staffers and friends of Michael who spoke with the media early during 2009. People who had nothing to lose but their friend, and or employer. Statements by people who have nothing to lose or gain in regards to Michael's catalog. I don't believe the surveillance footage has been completely erased and lost to the ages. Nonetheless I want the culprits to know that I will never ever believe their rewritten version of Michael's last day. This is how I pictured the last 24 hours of my King's life. As told within days after his passing by people who cared for him.

June 24, 2009 (A typical day at Holmby Hills)

8:00-8:30am: Ms Chase arrives for work as she stated on NBC Today.


8:30-9:30am: Ms. Chase prepares breakfast for the children (NBC)
9:30-10:00am: Murray comes downstairs for MJ's breakfast. (kids downstairs playing)(NBC)

10:30am: Murray leaves for the day per ms. Chase.

11:00-12:00 Michael takes a shower (so sexy), brushes his teeth, gets dressed, perhaps some breathing treatment and or AM medications (jmo)

(kids downstairs playing) (NBC).

12:00 Noon: Ms. Chase prepares lunch(NBC)
12:30 pm: Michael has lunch with his kids(NBC)

1:00pm: Michael does Stretching excercises before rehearsal @Holmby Hills.


2:00pm: Rehearsal with TravisP. @Holmby Hills. Travis Payne, choreographer who worked alongside Ortega on This Is It, gives an insight into Jackson's workload during the rehearsals. Travis told BBC News: "Each of our days would start with me going to his residence. We would rehearse at 2pm every day until about 3.30pm or 4.30pm - and then we would reconvene at the venue and usually go from 6pm to midnight. "It was pretty full-on, and then sometimes during the night we'd speak about the creative parts of the show."

3:00pm: Rehearsal with TravisP

4:30pm: Rehearsal with TravisP

5:00pm: Per Ms. Chase Michael has dinner with his kids. Michael eats the same salad he had for lunch. Michael showers again (so sexy) Gets dressed (so sexy) for travel to the Staples center (jmo......).
6:00pm: Michael leaves Holmby Hills for rehearsal at the Staples Center.

6:30pm: Ed Alonzo (Concert Magician)) told the LATimes: the singer arriving at Staples around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday but not beginning rehearsal until 9 p.m., He looked great and had great energy. He wasn’t singing at full level but it was as beautiful as ever,”

7:00pm: meetings, meetings, meetings. (Michael would travel by golf cart to his dressing room)

8:00pm: Michael had one meeting for about 20 minutes with Ken Ehrlich (Grammy Producer) regarding a project for the Fall (ABC, CBS, TVGuide ). Per Mr. Ehrlich, Michael invited him to stay and watch rehearsal. Mr. Ehrlich stated that he left after watching Michael perform 5 or 6 songs.
Michael Bearden (Music Director) told JetInsider: I was with him most of the day going over many different elements of the show with him and Kenny. Travis was busy working with the dancers and tech people. He had a little light dinner as we looked at the video elements that were being prepared for the show. The meeting was serious as all of the money people were there and MJ was giving his final approval on everything. He still found time to be silly while all of this was happening. He leaned over to me at one point and whispered in my ear, "who's your favorite 3 stooges?" I was cracking up because we were supposed to be concentrating on the business. I told him as he was talking to the people about the video and then he would lean over and whisper, "yeah, I like him too but my favorite is...".LOL...that was MJ.
9:00pm: Michael Bearden (Music Director) told JetInsider: After that meeting we hit the stage. It was late. We worked until 11:30 or so, maybe a little later. MJ was amazing that night! He had full command of the stage and he seemed to be able to will his feet to do whatever he wanted. At one point he looked back at me as if to say yeah, I'm Michael freakin' Jackson! I got this! We're about to take the people on a journey they've never been on before. I'm back!


10:00pm: Michael rehearsing, singing, dancing, and directing (TII).
10:00pm: Kai Chase on NBC Today: Ms. Chase leaves dinner in the frige. She notices that Murray's car is not parked outside as she leaves. Per Ms. Chase, Murray usually reports to the mansion around 9-930pm nightly and goes upstairs.
(Murray would have to arrive after Ms. Chase has left on 6/24/2009)

11:00pm: Michael Rehearsing and having the time of his life on stage (TII)!!!


June 25, 2009------------the real deal holyfield!!!

12:00midnight- Tim Patterson (Cameraman) in the Gazzettetimes: On the eve of Michael Jackson's death, rehearsal ran past midnight. The final two songs that Patterson filmed were "Thriller" with a full-costumed cast and "Earth Song."

Dorian Holley (Vocal Director) stated to Time.com: Holley says he left rehearsals just before midnight on the night of June 24, as Jackson headed off to attend yet more meetings.


Ed Alonzo (Concert Magician) told USmagazine: "I just thought, 'Wow, he still has it,'" he told Us. "When he did 'Thriller,' I was just in awe. I stayed for a while, probably until about midnight. And then they started to rehearse the 'Thriller' number with a gigantic spider on stage and I thought, 'Well, it's getting late...' Had I known, I would have stayed another half hour and watched more."He said that Jackson, rehearsed with the dancers until 1 a.m."

1:00am: Kriyss Grant (Principle Dancer for TII) told Essence.com: The last time we saw and spoke to Michael was at 1A.M., the morning of his death, and we'd just finished rehearsals. (Note: Kriyss Grant was the first dancer Micheal selected for TII).
Michael Bearden (Music Director) told JetInsider: I was actually the last one from the company to see MJ as we left rehearsal. I will never forget my last moments with MJ. As I was leaving Staples Center that evening, I had to wait for MJ before I could leave as his car and security team was blocking my car. I was extremely tired but I had to wait for the boss. When he arrived to get into the car I teased him about blocking me in. He laughed and hugged me. He said he felt great tonight. I told him he looked great and sounded great, too. He said God bless you as he often did and smiled that MJ smile. I asked what time he was coming in and he said around 2:00p with Travis. I told him have a good night and we shook hands as he told me he loved me. I replied the same way and said see you tomorrow. Although I never saw him again physically he's been with me every day of my life since then and will be until we meet again.

1:00 am: Per CNNnews Michael called the doctor to his rented Holmby Hills mansion June 25 at about 1 a.m., the report said........ LOL!!!

http://articles.cnn.com/2010-02-09/justice/michael.jackson.autopsy_1_acute-propofol-intoxication-dr-conrad-murray-jackson-propofol?_s=PM:CRIME LOL!!!

(Note: it's 15.74 miles from the Staples Center 1111 South Figueroa St Los Angeles Ca 90015 to Michael's home @ 100 North Carolwood Drive Los Angeles CA. Estimated travel time 23 minutes if Michael took the route as noted from Mapquest and did not make any stops other than traffic lights/stop signs.

(Since rehearsal with the Dancers ended at 1:00 am, there's no way the LAPD saw Michael Joseph Jackson on surveillance arriving at HolmbyHills at 12:30am, 12:45am, nor 12:58am.......LOL! Everyone knows that Michael didn't just walk out of the Staples center instantly at 1:00am. Michael is known for long good byes, hugs and prayers. I gave him 15 minutes to speak with the dancers after rehearsal. Another 15 minutes with other staffers/crew/interested parties. I calculated a typical Michael Jackson goodbye from the prayer circle of TII....(even though the scene was edited). A golf cart ride to his SUV (3mins), joking and joshing with MBearden (2 mins) and finally leaving the parking lot of staples center accompanied by security.

1:40am-1:45am: Michael's Estimated time of departure from the Staples Center. (just a guesstimate)

2:03am -2:08am: Estimated time of Michael's arrival to Holmby Hills.(my best guesstimation)

(IMO: It would make sense for Michael to call Murray at this point. The club closes at 2:00am nightly.....LOL!..
Papa Joe was on to something....again.....LOL!!!!)

3:00am-5:00am (Key words: "Most of the Time"): Travis Payne (Choreographer) told Essence.com: We were all insomniacs. If you work in the entertainment business it's something you develop from working late nights. Me, Kenny Ortega and Michael began our serious work most of the times from 3a.m. to 5 a.m. in the morning, because that's when we're able to just talk without any phones ringing. But, no, there was no indication that we would lose him. Everyone knew he suffered with insomnia. When you work hard like Michael you're thinking is, would you rather sleep or get closer to the goals. We always made sure he had plenty of nourishment and he loved to eat. We scheduled our breaks and days off because he was preparing for 50 shows and he had done more than that when we were on the "History" tour, so, again, there was no indication.

6:00am: I believe Murray killed my king sometime between 2am-6am.

8:00-8:30am: Ms Chase arrives for work as she stated on NBC Today.(She finds it odd that Micheal did not eat the dinner she prepared for him the night before).

8:30-9:30am: Ms. Chase prepares breakfast for the children (NBC)

9:30-10:00am: Murray does not come downstairs for MJ's breakfast as usual and expected. (kids downstairs playing)(NBC)

10:00-11:00: Murray on the phone (Phone records) (kids downstairs playing)(NBC)

11:00-12:00 Murray on the phone (Phone records (kids downstairs playing) (NBC)

12:05pm: Ms. Chase thinks Michael is just sleeping late and begins to prepare lunch(NBC)

12:10pm: Murray goes into his act and yelled get Prince (WWW)

Ms. Chase on CNN regarding the morning of 6/25/2009:

“The morning I -- I got in to work around 8:00, 8:30. I fed the kids their breakfast and -- which is granola and almond milk -- and then proceeded to, you know, to start doing the lunch, you know, which was usually around 12:00, 12:30. So around 10:00, something like that, normally Dr. Murray usually comes down. And...”

Larry King asked her if Dr. Murray lived at the mansion with Michael Jackson. She responded that he would stay in the evenings, she clarified by stating, “He stayed overnight. And normally, he'd come around 10:00, 10:30, downstairs, to get Mr. Jackson's juices or some sort of breakfast for him for that morning.

So around that time, I noticed that I hadn't seen Dr. Murray. You know, so I'm just -- I'm thinking to myself, well, maybe Mr. Jackson is sleeping in late, you know, maybe because his rehearsal has been pushed back or something on that nature.

So I proceed, go to preparing the lunch and wrapped his lunch like Mr. Jackson likes -- you know, wrapped it in Saran Wrap and -- because he likes, you know, the -- his lunch like he is at a hotel, you know, kind of like room service.” Kai continues, “So around 12:00, 12:05, 12:10, Dr. Murray comes down the stairs. There was a stairwell that leads into the kitchen. And he's screaming, hurry. Go get Prince. Call security. Get Prince. So I...”

Larry King then asked Kai who Prince was, she responded, “Michael Jackson's eldest son. And he -- so I -- I drop everything that -- that I'm doing and I run into the den, which is very close to the kitchen. And I go get Prince. And Prince and I run back. And, you know, he meets Dr. Murray at the stairs. Prince stays with -- downstairs with us and Dr. Murray goes up the stairs with -- but within minutes, the paramedics are there. And the security is running upstairs, skipping stairs and all of a sudden we're all, you know, panicked -- you know, what's going on?

What's happening?

So the energy in the house had kind of just kind of changed from that happy kind of day that we were having and preparing lunch and having a good time to just kind of eerie.” Larry King then asked what the kids were doing while all of this was taking place.

Kai answered by describing the children’s emotional reaction to their father’s condition, “The -- the daughter, she says -- Paris, she starts screaming, "Daddy. Daddy. Daddy."

We all started, you know, crying and...we knew Something was wrong. And -- and she's screaming, "Daddy," and starts crying. And then we started crying and we all come together in unity in a circle and we started holding hands. And we started praying, you know, God please let Mr. Jackson...”

Larry King interrupted and asked, “You knew it was deadly bad?”

Kai Chase replied, “I didn't know what. I just had a feeling that something... .that something was very serious.”

Kai stated that she could tell by the way Dr. Conrad Murray came down the stairs that something was wrong, though she never heard the 911 phone call. She also said that she never went upstairs to Michael Jackson’s room. She told Larry King that Michael always came downstairs and would eat lunch and dinner with Paris, Prince, and Blanket. When asked if she had seen the paramedics remove Michael from the home she stated, “No. They asked us to leave -- go home around 1:30 -- 1:00, 1:30, something like that. Security had asked us to leave. And we asked if Mr. Jackson was OK. And they said we need to take him -- he's going to be going to the hospital.”

(I have no problem being wrong but I can always clarify whom and or where the information was obtained)!!!!!
