    LOS ANGELES  The doctor convicted in the overdose death of Michael Jackson was sentenced to the maximum four years behind bars Tuesday by a judge who denounced him as a reckless physician whose actions were a "disgrace to the medical profession."

    Dr. Conrad Murray sat stoically with his hands crossed as Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor repeatedly chastised him for what he called a "horrific violation of trust" while caring for Jackson.
    The judge was relentless in his bashing of Murray, saying he lied repeatedly and had not shown remorse for his actions in the treatment of Jackson. Pastor also said Murray's heavy use of the powerful anesthetic propofol to help Jackson battle insomnia violated his sworn obligation.

    "It should be made very clear that experimental medicine is not going to be tolerated, and Mr. Jackson was an experiment," Pastor said. "Dr. Murray was intrigued by the prospect and he engaged in this money for medicine madness that is simply not going to be tolerated by me."

    The only reason why he will only serve part of his sentence in a county jail instead of prison is because of over crowdedness. Being upper middle class had nothing to do with it or else would of been found not guilty or be given a lighter sentence. If California and the rest of the nation decriminalize pot, the prisons and jails won't be so overcrowded!

      Yes yes the pot heads are keeping the prisons crowed. Maybe they will build some parks in nature so they can get outside a bit.

      Your insight is just absolutely brilliant and on so many topics
