Conrad Murray

Prosecutors Try to Block

Bid for Freedom

If prosecutors have their way ...Conrad Murray will stay locked up, even though an appeals court could reverse his manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson.

According to new court docs obtained by TMZ ... the California Attorney General is scoffing at Murray's bid for release pending appeal, arguing that he's totally unconvincing when he says he's not a flight risk.  Murray is claiming if he gets out he'll live with his GF/baby mama Nicole Alvarez in Santa Monica, but prosecutors are quick to point out ... he has 7 kids with 5 women, which does not exactly make him the poster child of stability.

And get this ... Murray argued that he can't flee because he's a celeb and therefore can't run and hide.  But prosecutors blanch at the doctor's argument, claiming it would be a travesty to reward him for becoming a celebrity by killing a true celebrity.

 Prosecutors also say the fact that Murray has shown no remorse is a red flag that he might continue to be a danger to the community if set free.

AFAIC if Jackson hadn't died while under this guys care it would have happened under anothers
MJ had bad problems and he would have found someone else
His health and stamina was so bad there is no way he could have performed those concerts in the way they were being promoted
He wanted a way out and he found it
To bad he took someone down with him

This guy..he is ridiculous! He complains so much it's jail fool! It was not made for comfort. Now this! Why should he have the privilege of being freed? Man up, you benefited so much financially for being crooked, someone died in the process,and you still feel entitled to special treatments. Stop it Mr. Murray take your punishment accordingly maybe ppl would respect that about you.

Should I accept this as an apology from TMZ for exposing MJ's uglier than mug shot DL picture?


It certainly did not generate as many hits as the MJ pic, guess more people hate MJ than Murray!!!

The female, Nicole Alvarez, thinks that Murray is devoted to her but she doesn't realize that she is just one of many. Standing by Murray and supporting him isn't going to turn him into a man who loves her. Murray loves only himself. Murray is just using "the Instrument" in hopes of looking like a family man which we know he is not. The instrument needs to smarten up.

Dr. Murray killed a celebrity? I thought he killed Michael Jackson.
