Conrad Murray

D.A. Says He's a

Danger to Society

The D.A. is alarmed that Dr. Conrad Murray is asking the trial judge to spring him from the pokey while he appeals his conviction in the death of Michael Jackson -- arguing Murray is a danger to society.

According to the new docs, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say Murray has shown no remorse for his "reckless and criminal conduct that directly caused Michael Jackson's death."  In other words, the D.A. says Murray just doesn't get it, and he could engage in the same conduct again if the judge lets him loose.

The D.A. also claims Murray is a flight risk, because he no longer has strong ties to California now that his medical license has been revoked.

As for Murray's grounds for appealing the conviction, the D.A. claims they're all bogus.  The D.A. makes mention of the judge's decision to exclude Dr. Arnold Klein's testimony.  Klein gave MJ scores of Demerol shots in the months preceding his death, but the D.A. says no traces of the drug were found in MJ's body at the time of his death.

Murray has no remorse because he didn't care about his patient. He knew he was not authorized or properly prepared to use propofol, but he did it anyway. He's a grown man, he made his decision, now he should face the consequences.

And I really think that if he's let out of jail, he will fly to another country out of the jurisdiction of the U.S. at the first opportunity.

That's not the issue. The point here is, regardless of WHAT Michael Jackson was, Murray was a doctor and had NO BUSINESS administering illegal drugs to anybody!

When these "doctors" give celebrities or anybody with $$$ prescription drugs and Lord knows what else, they aren't thinking of those people lives! They just want to get paid!

Conrad Murray is a danger to society because he is a sociopath. He can kill you today and go to your funeral tomorrow and cry as if he did nothing wrong.

The only reason CM wants out of jail while he appeals his case, is because if he is still behind bars when his case comes up, there is a very good chance that the appeals court will not rule his favor.

I agree, I don't want to see someone else hurt again! He definitely is a danger to society and a major flight risk, and an evil, violent, horrible person!

If I had offed that pedophile, I wouldn't show any remorse either. Good job, Dr. Murray.

Guilty of the charge, sure I think so but "a danger"? What do they think will happen he'll find rich people to ask him to give them surgical anesthesia in their homes every night for weeks and never question any possible dangers?

Oh, please. Incompetent doctor, yes. Flight risk, yes. But danger to society? Hardly. He was just an easily manipulated, not very skilled guy with an MD who was selected by Michael for just that reason, since Michael needed an MD to get the drug he was convinced he needed to sleep. A competent doctor would never have gone along with such a stupid plan. The guy is just a scapegoat since everybody needs to blame somebody for Michael's death and are reluctant to put the blame where it really belongs - Michael himself. Just take away the guy's medical license forever and put him on probation.
