Conrad Murray Prosecution

What's Wrong with This Picture?

11/7/2011 2:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1107_da_bn
The man of the hour -- Prosecutor David Walgren -- who won the Conrad Murray case, might as well have been sent to Siberia by his boss, L.A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley, because he was completely out of the shot as Cooley took credit for the victory.

It's pretty stunning, given that the winning prosecutor typically addresses the media after a verdict, but even if the D.A. was exercising caution while the sentence is pending, Cooley didn't even allow Walgren to stand next to him.

Instead of Walgren, Cooley was flanked by his number 2, Jackie Lacey, and D.A. honcho Pat Dixon. Choosing Lacey is an audacious move on Cooley's part, since he personally chose her to run as his successor in the 2012 election. 

A D.A. spokesperson said Lacey was standing next to Cooley because, "It's like Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock."

God Bless Dr. Murray    

Murray did the world a favor...


-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.

In the Los Angeles District Attorney Debate for the 2012 election Alan Jackson and Jackie Lacey praised Steve Cooley all night Steve Ipsen blasted Lacey and the office policies that have created the prison overcrowding crisis. Lacey tried to blame Jerry Brown. Ipsen basically told Lacey to look in the mirror at the policies she supports. Steve Ipsen for Los Angeles District Attorney 2012!!!

Check out Steve Ipsen's plan for criminal justice reform called "Reform First". Maybe Jackie Lacey and Steve Cooley should take a few notes after they wake up and realize the prison crisis is one they created

Well, of course the ugly, old goat doesn't want the young, hot lawyer to get all the attention. Shame. We all know who did all the work... Cooley's not fooling anyone.
