Dr. Conrad Murray

A Free Man Again

EXCLUSIVE

1027_conrad_murray_getty2
Dr. Conrad Murray is a FREE MAN ... after serving a 2-year jail sentence for killing Michael Jackson ... and Murray didn't spend an extra minute in jail. 

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. ... Murray was released at 12:01 AM Monday -- however, he did not make a triumphant walk out of jail ... choosing, instead, to sneak out away from photogs who had gathered. 

By remaining unseen ... Murray obviously knows he raises the price tag of that coveted first interview with him.

A group of hecklers was clearly irritated they were not permitted to voice their disdain face-to-face -- and took it out on Murray's lawyer, Valerie Wass. As for why the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. made the accommodation to keep Murray's release secret ... all they would say is "safety" and "security."

The good doc has been locked up since November '11 after being convicted of  manslaughter.  He was sentenced to 4 years in prison ... but 2 is normal for a 4-year sentence.

As we previously reported ... Murray plans to try and get his medical license back in Nevada and block revocation in California -- our sources say he doesn't stand a chance. 

He's also looking to hire a publicist once he's out -- to help change his image.

Freedom will clearly also have its challenges.

The medical boards in Nevada, California, and Texas have a responsibility to the public to protect us from deranged sociopathic killers like Murray. Any t.v. interviews, publishers, t.v. reality show will be boycotted by 60 million international Michael Jackson fans along with the sponsor's of these companies.

The price tag for an interview is unknown. What's the price on his head?

Protect the public? LOL Wasn't Paris' so-called father the one who told her to give Murray cash?
I'm sure the cash came from Paul McCartney's huge song publishing profits. Jackson was too busy spending $100 million for SKIN DEPIGMENTING, FACE CHANGES, other CHILDREN, and LAWYERS that LOST HIS COURT CASE ABOUT OTHER CANCELLED CONCERTS.
He still wanted to make money with his "family concerts" even though he shut the Jacksons out when he committed Demerol & Propofol crimes with doctors. He hated to pay Jermaine so he threatened to cancel a second 30th Anniversary Jackson brothers concert in 2001. Katherine was watching her "baby" therefore it was impossible for Jackson to back away from the "family"

Can we hear what a great father MJ was? I mean after all he touched children, locked himself in a room to get high to sleep for 18 hours a day according to court records and bought children when it got too pricey to pay those pesky prying parents. What dad of the year material! He has 3 children that he is not the biological parent for one wont talk in public (blanket), one from most accounts is a douche bag (prince) and one is having a public meltdown trying to open her wrists....

What a GREAT DAD he must have been lol in between DR shopping and sleeping for 18 hours a day he must have been a super swell dude.

This article shows exactly what is wrong with the media landscape and America today.

Here we have a guy who killed another, was convicted and went to prison. There we have 3 children who lost their father and are still struggling to go on with their lives.
In addition we have the ruthless media, who would do anything for a good quota, ignoring the impact and trauma it would create on MJ's children, having to watch the media fighting over the man who killed their dad.

I thought that Paris' suicide attempt would be a wake-up call for the media in dealing with children, especially under such cir***stances. But I was obviously wrong. It is beyond me how people can be so heartless and give this guy even a second of media presence.
May the children get all the support they need and let's hope that at least some media people realise what they are doing and refuse to give Murray any more attention than he's already gotten.
MJ's kids should sue the tabloids for doing this to them.
