DISGUSTED

Tom Mesereau
-- the lawyer who successfully defended Michael Jackson in the singer's 2005 molestation trial -- literally could not stand to listen to Conrad Murray's desperate voicemail yesterday ... telling TMZ, "This man is despicable."

Tom was out in L.A. when we played the recording for him, and after just a minute, Tom turned it off with a disgusted look on his face ... saying, "I can't listen to any more of this."

Tom then tore into Conrad Murray over his desperate pleas for sympathy -- saying, "This man is despicable. This man has never taken responsibility for what he did to Michael Jackson. He's always been a blamer. He blames Michael Jackson for everything."

Tom added, "[Conrad] wants everyone to feel sorry for his situation. He caused the death of one of the greatest artists in world history ... a kind, decent, wonderful, nice person. He caused his death and he's never taken responsibility for it."

TMZ posted the voicemail recording yesterday morning, in which Murray pleads with a friend to save him from jail -- saying, "I can't sleep now ... it's very hard ... I'm in constant pain ... can someone please help me please!?"

THANK YOU Tom Mesereau, he is SO RIGHT INDEED!!!! That disgusting MURDERER always played the "poor murderer" card and is trying to escape his already extremely insufficient punishment!!! He deserved the death penalty!!!! His total lack respect for human life is despicable and disgusting!!! The judge also was disgusted as well as by his blaming Michael Jackson!!!! The disgusting murderer despicable just deserves to rot in jail before finally going to rot in hell where he belongs!!!!

WE LOVE YOU TOM, YOU ARE AN ANGEL. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE TO PROVE THAT MJ WAS TOTALLY INNOCENT. HATERS ARE JUST UPSET THEY DIDN'T GET THE VERDICT THEY WANTED, BUT THAT'S OK, THEIR WORDS SHOW JEALOUSY BECAUSE THEIR LIVES ARE USELESS AND BORING. THANK YOU TOM!!

We LOVE you Tom, you are the greatest man in the UNIVERSE. And yes, haters are jealous, lowly beings. We only have compassion and understanding for the haters because they hate themselves so much they try to put that hate on others so we don't see how miserable they are within themselves, they struggle daily with the fact that they have done nothing with their life. We forgive them for they know not what they do :)

I love Tom Mesereau! Besides being Michael's lawyer, he was an absolutely true friend to Michael Jackson. I wish Michael would have had more people with the character and conduct of Tom Mesereau in his life.

I don't dislike Mesereau, but let's be clear.
He didn't save MJ. He didn't 'get him off.

Michael was acquitted because there was a total lack of credible evidence against him.
The jury listened to Janet Arviso and her fanciful imagination (kidnapping by hot air balloon!!!) and could not possibly believe her.
They listened to Star Arviso and realised that he couldn't even get his timeline synchronised with that of his brother.
And they listened to Gavin, who told his 'story' riddled with inconsistencies.

So, yes Mes is a competent lawyer - but he was not MJs saviour. The truth saved Michael.

Actually they are both to blame.Had Murray not been so money hungry and walked away way or gotten Michael to a hospital/detox center when he first seen Michael was addicted.Michael would still be alive.Murray would have been a hero for saving his life.Instead,sadly,we can't change the past.
Murray deserves where he is.If he wants pain,put him in general pop.in the yard alone.He experience real pain.

Conrad just sit the FCK down and serve your time. You only got 4 years for killing MICHAEL JACKSON and you're complaining? There are MJ fans out here who remain devastated over the death of their idol. You're safer in there than you are out here.

Its not surprising. Most Africans are scammers and liars and think they are above the law. Just pointing out what I see.

I haven't read the comments, but I'd bet that way more than one person suggested a triple dose of Propofol, for the whiny little prisoner.
