Dr. Murray Charged

MICHAEL JACKSON's doctor has been formally charged with involuntary manslaughter in Los Angeles.
Dr. Conrad Murray is expected to surrender to police on Monday afternoon (08Feb10). Jackson fans and the media have gathered to surround the court for the physician's arrival.
Members of Jackson's family are expected to hold a press conference on the steps of the courthouse.
Murray had planned to surrender to the authorities on Friday (05Feb10) but scrapped the idea over security fears.
The decision not to show at a designated Los Angeles airport courthouse on Friday came hours after a spokeswoman for Murray's legal team told the Los Angeles Times newspaper that Thursday night (04Feb10) talks between his lawyers and prosecutors surrounding the details of the doctor's surrender had broken down.
Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, told the publication the negotiations failed because authorities insisted on "a photo op" of the physician in handcuffs.
The doctor stands accused of the wrongful death of Jackson last June (09). He has maintained he's innocent of any wrongdoing.
According to prosecutors, Murray "unlawfully and without malice" killed Jackson "without due caution and circumspection".
He faces a four-year prison term.

Mister Gone MJ was aquited on all charges. He is no child molester. Maybe your father, uncles, grandfather, maybe even you, but not MICHAEL JACKSON. KEEP YOUR TRAP SHUP IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. It's about time we get justice for MJ. Rest in peace my sweet angel.

The song "EARTH SONG" comes to my mind, I don't know why? but it does, some of the lyrics (words) goes like this:"WHAT HAVE WE DONE?"exactly, what is going on??????? I realize our court system is what it is. BUT!!!!!! what kind of charge is this ?????? [involuntary manslaughter] ?????? it doesn't make sense !!!!!!! OUR KING "THE" "KING OF POP MICHAEL JACKSON" is gone !!!!!!!!!!! and why ?????? because of a careless doctor injecting a deadly drug Propofol, that is used for surgeries not for sleeping insomia !!!!!! This doctor knew what he was doing for SURE!
