Its official! Dr. Conrad Murray is convicted of involuntary manslaughter and could be sent to jail for 4 years. What are your thoughts on this.
Oh well. It's not a surprise. At least they did find him guilty.
He was over-prescribing pain medecation that wasn't required. Lets face it, he murdered him.
At 150K a month for personal care this "doc" is the personification of greed and didn't flinch when the verdict was read. Assisted suicide??? Makes me wonder.
Sad... but let's face it, we will never know the Truth.
There was no real evidence, just experts of propafol etc giving testimony in court. Only Michael Jackson and Conrad knows what happens.
Having said that, I wish he had called 911 sooner.
my 2 cents around what i read in this thread...didn't pay attention to the 'latest MJ news'...so if the doc was convicted because of over-prescribing,there are many, many, many docs that could/should face the same thing - problem is, those that died because their docs over-prescribed meds weren't famous and their demise did not make the news.
I think that's the right verdict.
He didn't intend to kill MJ.
He enabled Michael Jackson in becoming addicted to Propafol (or as MJ called it, his "milk.").
Yes, he should have called 911 faster.
But hey, it took Casey Anthony a month to report her daughter missing.
And she walked.
At least Murray got taken out of circulation. He won't be getting any more $150K a month personal pusher gigs for at least 4 years.
Dr.Murray should be punished by having his medical license permanently taken away. I see no reason to have him do jail time. Michael was a mess with drug addiction. Demerol no longer worked, and he begged Dr. Murray, as his personal physician, to give him "his milk" Propophyl. The doctor was negligent in giving in to his high-profile patient and leaving his side when he should have been monitored. There was no malice involved- simply medical malpractice.
Michael's parents did more accumulative harm over the long run. Let's put them in jail!

How do YOU feel about that? Seemed like at least VOLUNTARY to me and now they're saying he will probably serve 5 years. What kind of message does this give police in Oakland? Man, I would not want to be there right now!
