Jackson's Father Urges Fans To Keep Protests Peaceful

MICHAEL JACKSON's father JOE has issued an impassioned plea to the King of Pop's loyal fans ahead of DR. CONRAD MURRAY's upcoming court hearing - urging them to keep any protests peaceful.
The medic has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter amid accusations he administered the powerful drug that killed the Thriller hitmaker last June (09).
Murray's supporters and Jackson fans are planning to descend on the Superior Court of Los Angeles next month (14Jun10) when the physician is due to face a preliminary hearing ahead of his trial over the death of the superstar.
Joe fears the scenes outside the court could turn ugly - and he is urging Jackson's loyal devotees not to resort to violence or "name-calling".
In an open letter to fans, obtained by TMZ.com, Joe writes, "We would like to urge fans who are planning to attend to please do so in peace, unity and love for Michael. There should be NO violence, NO Slander, NO yelling, and NO bad-mouthing or name-calling of Murray or his supporters. This reflects negatively on Michael. He would not support this kind of behaviour... By calling names we are lowering ourselves to their level... We all have a common, unifying mission, which is Justice For Michael...
"Michael Jackson supporters are not to be looked down on as crazed fanatics, but as crusaders for peace and love."

I do understand Joe and his wish, because Michael never raised his voice and always so polite.But...the situation here is a little different, because we, the true fans of Michael Jackson believe that Dr Death murdered our beloved Michael, and took away from us the most wonderful person on this earth with one message: To spread L.O.V.E to each other, and saving our planet.I know too that Murray is "the fall guy", and much more people are involded in the conspiracy who killed Michael, but Murray is number one on the list!!I know too that only really true fans of Michael Jackson will protests outside the court, and those fans are nice people with a big and loving heart. They will behave so good they can, but the word "murderer" I'm sure will be heard.If.. there will be a hearing June 14. I've been reading that Murray want to delay the hearing, because he says that his attorneys have to go through "hundreds of thousands papers". This is really bulls***!It's just another stupid excuse!We got so many evidences that Murray is guilty in at least 2nd degree murder, the evidences are so clear, and you need infact only a few papers to prove that!Perhaps Murray want to have a paperplanes match inside the courtroom, who knows??YOUR CREEP MURRAY!!Lisbeth, Sweden

Yeah, that's the spirit MJfans. That is how to make it a better world. Make a little space, to make a better place. Everybody wants to life in a good world. But life isn't always good. Life is pain.But healing the world would be a "little"" to much out there. Wouldn't it? That's when you go to a level that the fanatics start giving deaththreats. I do not think that was Michaels goal. Mister Joe Jackson knows it. And he made a lot of mistakes in his life. Even if Murray is getting just a "little" punishment. The man will for the most of his life always be targeted as the doctor who put MJ to sleep forever. Life is pain for him. Ass for all of us. Who threw the first stone for all of us?Ohm shanti. Namaste.

This is too dificult to deal with. God please please turn back time to June 23, 2009 in Jesus' name. I don't know how many times I prayed that prayer. Joe is right Michael was about L.O.V.E. & we fans have to represent him. It's good that I live in NYC because I think I would probably attack Murray, although I'm not a violent person. It would be dificult to exercise self control. And the fact that Murray has no remorse or offered no apologies really furiates me. Peekaboo I know you don't think that Murray is Michael in disguise. I don't understand all of these people who swears that Michael faked his death. Michael was a perfectionist. He would have planned everything out so well there wouldn't be all of this chaos or controversey around his death if it were a hoax. He was also very private. I don't think that he would want anyone to know about his hair or the depigment creams because it's nobody's business & the medialoids would go crazy with it. Futhermore. He wouldn't just leave his children. Lucky you Tanya...you get to be right there. I miss him so much.
