Dr. Conrad Murray

Denied Freedom

During Manslaughter Appeal

2/24/2012 5:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224_murray_BN_01
Dr. Conrad Murray was just shot down by a judge, denying him bail while he appeals his manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson.

During today's hearing, Judge Michael Pastor found Murray is still a flight risk because he does not have significant property or family ties here in Los Angeles.

Judge Pastor also believes Murray is a danger to society -- citing the NBC documentary, in which Murray fails to show any remorse for MJ's death.

Pastor said "it scares me" that Murray believes it's okay to use Propofol in a home setting -- and insists he could pose a danger to the safety of other people if he were released.

Murray had previously filed a motion asking for bail so he could spend time with his family while he awaits the outcome of his appeal.

Murray is hoping to overturn his manslaughter conviction on grounds he never had a chance to prove Michael killed himself  due to stress ... among other reasons.

Murray's appellate attorney Valerie Wass says she believes Murray is a "scapegoat," who's being blamed for Michael's death because there's no one else to target.

I have always said that MJ's fans were 99.9% responsible for Wacko Jacko becoming the hermit and nut job that he was. They caused it with their obsessive adulation and ceaseless hounding of the man.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I agree accept that I'll add that if he didn't act and portray himself as being so strange the tabloids would have nothing to report.

duilama - you are seriously mentally disturbed? I feel sorry for your family! I really do! I'm not sure if you are male or female, but I can only imagine your children are embarrassed if this is the way you talk about people and act.

It's funny how the stuperfans like to use the "like - dislike" buttons, as if it matters. You can tell exactly how many of them are online and how many read a post. For those of us that do not support MJ, your "dislikes" are an indicator that we are doing something right. Clicking on a button is much easier then actually coming up with a valid response.

Jerry's fans are more sane! and Jerry has million more fans than MJ who admit that Jerry is a pedophile, unlike MJ's rabid fans who deny, deny and deny!

I bet you are Jerry Sandusky's #1 fan. You seem to admire the guy so much.

Snooki is so hot too. If MJ were still alive, he and snooki should have a baby. It would be the hottest baby ever!

Why is it that Jermaine Jackson is always after his brother's women? He slept with Randy's wife Alejandra Jackson and he also slept with Whitney Houston and Grace Rwaramba who both had a crush on MJ.
