MJ's Family to Judge:

We Don't Want Revenge

We Want Justice!

Michael Jackson
's parents, siblings and children issued a joint statement to the court ... begging Judge Pastor to make Conrad Murray pay for his crime ... but the family insists they're not out for revenge.

The statement reads, "There is no way to adequately describe the loss of our beloved father, son, brother and friend. We still look at each other in disbelief. Is it really possible that he is gone?

As Michael's parents, we could never have imagined that we would live to witness his passing. It is simply against the natural order of things.

As his brothers and sisters, we will never be able to hold, laugh or perform again with our brother Michael.

And as his children, we will grow up without a father, our best friend, our playmate and our dad.

We are not here to seek revenge. There is nothing you can do here today to bring Michael back. But we will keep the love in our hearts that Michael embodied throughout his life. His passion was for unifying the world through the gift of his artistry.

We respectfully request that you impose a sentence that reminds physicians that they cannot sell their services to the highest bidder and cast aside their Hippocratic oath to do no harm. As we all know from this tragedy, doing so can have devastating results.

The Bible reminds us that men cannot do justice, they can only seek justice. That is all that we ask as a family. And that is all that we can ask for here."

The only ones I feel bad for are the children. I don't feel like his family cared about him much at all, but those kids clearly loved their dad and miss him terribly. I hope they'll be alright. I hope that they hold strong to the happy memories and that that will get them trough. RIP Michael. You are missed and loved.

What about all the other doctors that "prescribed" for Jackson? Or are they only interested in the guy who was unlucky enough to have Jackson die after taking what Jackson BEGGED the doctor to give him. The only thing the brothers miss is the money, Dad cares about the fame it seems only the children and mother give a damn about the person.

They only want money. Just keep their names, and that freak-job, pedophile, in the spotlight and they're happy. Keep throwing that dough at them. That'll keep them smiling. I think Murray did the world a favor. One more drug-addicted, pedophile off the streets. Sick of hearing about him and his money-grubbing family. Can the rest of the world continue to turn now???

Maybe they should have focused more on the DRUG ADDICT their precious Michael was and tried to help him rather than ignore it, feed it and feed off the money that came rolling in once he died. This family is DISGUSTING and DESPICABLE and don't deserve a cent off his NOW massive fortune. I hope MJ is rolling in his grave over the way his family has sold him out.

I agree with the comments about wanting justice and in reality its the meal ticket they miss. I just don't believe Dr. Murray intentionally set out to do Michael any harm. But unless you live with an addict you don't know what they can and will do for drugs, even propofol. There are so many things wrong with this trial. I hope he wins an appeal and another judge.

How can they still be in disbelief? Did they not know that he was using drugs? Why would he need a doctor to live with him if he was a perfectly healthy 50-year-old man? They should have got him real help if he indeed had insomnia issues.
