Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Bodyguard To Testify In Court Today

MICHAEL JACKSON's bodyguard ALBERTO ALVAREZ, who prosecutors say was ordered to conceal syringes and other items before the 911 call was made on the day of the singer's death, will today testify at a preliminary hearing against DR CONRAD MURRAY, reports the UK's Guardian newspaper.
Alvarez's attorney said his client will speak about his attempts to revive the singer on 25th June 2009, and his testimony looks set to strengthen the prosecutors argument that Dr Murray's actions demonstrated, "an extreme deviation from the standard of care", after he administered a powerful anaesthetic to help Jackson sleep, without having the proper equipment. A post-mortem confirmed that the singer had died from an overdose Propofol, the drug used by Murray. In a Los Angeles Court yesterday (4th January 2010), deputy district attorney DAVID WALGREN accused Murray of forcing 34-year-old Alvarez to gather and conceal items before he phoned for medical help.
The preliminary hearing will determine whether there is enough evidence for Murray to stand trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, and he would face up to four years in prison if convicted. Yesterday, choreographer KENNY ORTEGA described how Jackson appeared 'sick' during rehearsals for his comeback concerts and eventually left early.

The negligence on the part of this so-called doctor has caused the life of OUR Michael Jackson. I wonder how he feels about this! God is the best JUDGE! With a heavy heart, I say Rest in Peace, O you beautiful Soul, Michael Jackson.

How very tragic that Michael, for all the love he shared for EVERYONE was only seen as a tool for fattening the pockets of so many around him. He was completely dehumanized by the greed of making another buck off the gold mine known as Michael Jackson.Michael asked, would you be there? I ask that of all those who were around him in the final days....... where were you? It would be IMPOSSIBLE for everyone to miss all the signs of how horribly wrong things were.This is a final judgment many will be charged with accounting for
