Every time I see these vacation pictures of Conrad Murray from last summer I get sick to my stomach, but this is an ironic pose isn't it? I have seen many tweets recently stating that instead of a posthumous CD, video game or Cirque show, they want to see justice for Michael Jackson. It's the one thing all fans agree on; justice. The vast majority of MJ fans want to see Conrad Murray pay for the death of our beloved Michael.
So while some fans rejoice at the new material coming out from the Michael Jackson estate, we also brace ourselves for the upcoming trial to begin on January 4, 2011. With this in the back of my mind, I started researching just exactly what was going on with Conrad Murray. Posted yesterday on TMZ, an article's headline reads: "Conrad Murray Hangs On to Medical License". After reading the article, TMZ states that "this all stems from issues related to child support he owed his baby mama....According to Murray's rep, the telephonic meeting ends their inquiry into Dr. Murray."
Hmmmm...something didn't sound right to me at this point. So the Nevada Medical Board has issues with unpaid child support, but has no problem with Murray transporting propofol over state lines, administering propofol in a home setting, or with the death of another human being? So as I click back on my pc to resume researching, I read the headline that Google has for the TMZ article. This headline is different than the link above, and it states, "Dr. Conrad Murray Sanctioned by Nevada Medical Board".
From the channel 8 website out of Nevada, an article titled "Medical Board Hears High Profile Cases" gives a more accurate description of Murray's license status. "The board announced a settlement Friday. Dr. Murray admits to wrongdoing and will have a reprimand on his state record. He will also have to pay the cost of the state investigation against him." The article also states that although "he is facing involuntary manslaughter charges for his role in (Michael Jackson's) death, Dr. Murray keeps his Nevada medical license for now." This is in direct conflict with what TMZ reported Dr. Murray's rep stated, that the Nevada Medical Board's issue stemmed from child support issues. Murray admitted to wrongdoing in the death of Michael Jackson, and yet was merely reprimanded by a medical board.
There are two issues here. The first is that the media continues to distort the facts that surround Michael Jackson, even nearly a year and a half after his death. The second is that Dr. Conrad Murray admitted wrongdoing. Jackson's family, friends and fans have known that Murray committed illegal activity with regard to administering propofol to Michael Jackson for 18 months.
A few weeks after Michael died, I remember reading an article about Ed Chernoff, the attorney Murray retained within days of MJ's death. The article, entitled "Best Course of Treatment: Representing Michael Jackson's Personal M.D." is a must read for Jackson fans. Among the highlights of the article:
1. Conrad Murray had to wire $600 to Chernoff for the flight from Texas to California because Chernoff believed Murray's request to retain him was a hoax.
2. On the morning of June 29, 2009, Chernoff, his partners and his PR team blitzed the TV news shows in Houston with their information about Murray. "Chernoff believe the blitz that Monday helped his client. Sevcik (PR person) says before the media interviews, she looked at roughly 100 comments posted on 20 different web sites and only 25% of those comments said that Murray was an innocent bystander in Jackson's death. After the Monday media appearances by Chernoff...that figure rose to 75%, Sevcik said...The message is expecially important in case Murray is charged with a crime; because it will improve Murray's chances of an unbiased jury pool and getting a fair trial."
Personally, this just sounds like a PR stunt to sway public opinion in favor of Murray, no matter whether he is guilty or not. When the horrid articles surfaced stating that Murray's defense was going to be based on Jackson self-injecting, my research partner told me the same thing. PR puts something out there, and then reads what public opinion will be to see if the public buys the defense or not. Nobody is buying that defense, Dr. Murray.
Jackson fans, keep in mind that the media has no integrity and especially with regard to Michael Jackson. And to Dr. Conrad Murray, we have not forgotten you. We will anxiously await your involuntary manslaughter trial and we will continue to fight for justice for Michael Jackson. You, Dr. Murray, are responsible for more pain than you could ever imagine. No matter how long it takes, in the end Dr. Murray, you will pay for taking Michael Jackson away from the world. Physician, heal thyself and tell the truth.
