Conrad Murray Legal Team

We Didn't Get a Red Cent

From Doc Murray Doc

Dr. Conrad Murray
's legal team didn't get any money -- directly or indirectly -- from the Murray documentary that's about to air on MSNBC ... this according to sources directly connected to the Dr.'s defense team.

There are reports out today that MSNBC funded Murray's legal defense, but our sources say it is "absolute B.S."  

We're told Murray's lead attorney, Ed Chernoff, is about to leave the case -- possibly before an appeal is filed -- because he needs to get back to his practice in Houston and make some money, because the Murray case almost put him under.

We're told Murray got $1 for his participation in the documentary.  But the people who are saying he got a buck will not say if he'll share in profits from selling the show.

This do***entary seems well planned. There have been people shooting for two years. They have to be paid for their time. If not they are like sponsors. This type of professional filming is not like making home videos with a little camera where one can tell that the hand holding the camera was shaking.
.
Montage takes time as well, just the technical work requires attention. It also requires going through lots of footage deciding what to show and making sure the story line makes sense. It is a lot of work and no one would do it for free. Just most people need to work and pay living expenses and can not afford to donate so much time. Everything looks planned. LaToya is right that her brother can not defend himsel****ainst any claims that Murray makes. It is like slandering MJ when he can not defend himself. Very ugly. People that want to watch have to imagine that someone discusses their very personal issues in front of millions and think how they would feel. That is like invasion of MJs privacy.

He's leaving the case before the appeal because he knows he won't win the appeal case either. If one case almost put him under then he is not a very good attorney. Which was obvoius in this case and pretty much goes without saying.

I think the (doctor) failed at his part and should take the fault... Taking lives of others is a big thing.. Especially when it comes to the greatest pop star. I believe if your a doctor and your making the money you do you better step to the plate and do your job. Because honestly... If your just going to be letting people die give your money to people that really care and ( SAVE PEOPLES LIVES ) !

An Open Letter    

An Open Letter to the children of michael jackson..

I know you believe your dad was a good father and I am sure he loved you, nurtured and provided your every need.

But a good father wouldn't have slammed dope into his body and put his life at risk the way your father did.

Conrad deserves what he got, but your "good" father invited him into that role and Michael deserves his share of the blame for his own death.
Your father should not have put you through that hell you went through at his early death, he should have gotten help for his addiction - that is what a good father would do if he had his children's best interest at heart.

That is a difficult truth to accept, but you guys deserve the truth for a change - you will understand one day.

What a stupid comment. Maybe you should write. He suffered from insomnia because of the terrible treatment of him by cruel people, the media.
MJ loved children. MJ helped children. What he got in return?. It killed him.

Surveillance Video Emerges Of Killer Hiding A Body In A FreezerSurveillance Video Emerges Of Killer Hiding A Body In A Freezer
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted on Nov 10, 2011 @ 11:00AM print it send it By Radar Staff

A Colorado woman who was abducted, assaulted, strangled and doused in bleach is now recovering after spending five weeks in a coma, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Despite her lucky escape, the sheer magnitude of the danger Lydia Tillman was in is only now becoming shockingly clear with the release surveillance video showing her attacker stashing another body in a freezer months earlier, ABCNews.com and 20/20 reported.

PHOTOS: Celebrities Who Died In Bizarre Cir****tances

Tillman's near-fatal ordeal began when she met a hunky blonde stranger at a 4th of July fireworks celebration in Fort Collins, Colorado, and took him back to her apartment, where he turned from a hot date into a potential killer.

Travis Forbes sexually assaulted and strangled the 30-year-old, beat her head, ****tered her jaw, and assuming she was dead, doused her with bleach and set fire to her apartment. Tillman miraculously managed to jump out of a second story window and run to an ambulance that had just arrived, then the ordeal overcame her and she collapsed from a stroke and lay in a coma for over a month.

What she didn't know until she woke up was that police were already a building case against the 31-year-old entrepreneur in connection with the disappearance of 19-year-old Kenia Monge, after the girl's step-dad found a text message from him on her cell.

Forbes claims that he offered her a ride home on April 1 after finding her drunk and incoherent near a nightclub, but that the teen wandered off when they stopped at a gas station for cigarettes.

When a search of his home increased suspicions, police pulled surveillance tape of a bakery that he rented space and found footage of him carting a cooler and putting it inside a freezer, other film showed him holding a bottle of bleach and a rag.

While police continued to build a case against the suspected killer, he went on to lure Tillman and leave her so swollen and bruised that the only way her family could recognize her was by a ring and a tattoo on her leg.

The use of bleach in her attack led to a DNA match and the arrest of Forbes, who confessed to that crime and the killing on Monge, whose body he stored in the cooler and then buried in a field.

He was arrested before Tillman even woke up from her coma, and sentenced on September 27.

The full story can be seen on Caught in the Act a 20/20 special on ABC, Friday at 9 pm ET.

Thank you, doctor    

Michael Jackson's abuse victims are harassed and sent death threat by hateful fans. Murray saved other children


-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.
