Judge Pastor Calls Dr. Murray's Treatment "Medical Madness" as he sentences him the Maximum Penalty

Judge Pastor Sentences  Murray the Maximum Sentence he can give under the law and his reasons for doing so.  He calls  Dr Murrays  treatment of Michael Jackson  among other things

 "Medical Madness"

Murray gets 4-year sentence, tongue-lashing from judge

LOS ANGELES — It was clear that Michael Jackson's doctor was going to get the maximum four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter before the judge even finished speaking.

In a nearly half-hour tongue lashing, Dr. Conrad Murray was denounced as a greedy, remorseless physician who committed a "horrific violation of trust" and killed the King of Pop during an experiment.

"Dr. Murray created a set of circumstances and became involved in a cycle of horrible medicine," Judge Michael Pastor said in a stern voice.
Pastor said Murray sold out his profession for a promised fee of $150,000 a month when he agreed to give Jackson a powerful anesthetic every night as an unorthodox cure for insomnia.

Murray will likely serve less than two years in county jail, not state prison, because of California's overcrowded prisons and jails. Sheriff's officials said he will be housed in a one-man cell and be kept away from other inmates.

The tall, imposing Murray, who has been in jail for three weeks, was allowed to change into street clothes — a charcoal gray suit and white shirt — for court. But he wore prison issue white socks and soft slippers.

Jackson's family said in a statement read in court that they were not seeking revenge but a stiff sentence for Murray that served as a warning to opportunistic doctors. Afterward, they said they were pleased with the judge's sentence.

"We're going to be a family. We're going to move forward. We're going to tour, play the music and miss him," brother Jermaine Jackson said.

After sentencing, Murray mouthed the words "I love you" to his mother and girlfriend in the courtroom. Murray's mother, Milta Rush, sat alone on a bench in the courthouse hallway. "My son is not what they charged him to be," she said quietly. "He was a gentle child from the time he was small." Of her son's future, she said, "God is in charge."

Murray, 58, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after a six-week trial that presented the most detailed account yet of Jackson's final hours, a story of the performer's anguish over being unable to sleep.

Pastor was relentless in his bashing of Murray, saying the physician lied repeatedly and abandoned Jackson when he was at his most vulnerable — under the anesthesia that Murray administered in an unorthodox effort to induce sleep.

"It should be made very clear that experimental medicine is not going to be tolerated, and Mr. Jackson was an experiment," he said.

Propofol is supposed to be used in hospital settings and has never been approved for sleep treatments, yet Murray acknowledged giving it to Jackson then leaving the room on the day the singer died.

As for defense arguments that Jackson tempted his own fate when he demanded propofol, Pastor said, "Dr. Murray could have walked away and said no as countless others did. But Dr. Murray was intrigued with the prospect of this money for medicine madness."

Pastor said Murray was motivated by a desire for "money, fame and prestige" and cared more about himself than Jackson.

The doctor was deeply in debt when he agreed to serve as Jackson's personal physician for $150,000 a month during his comeback tour. The singer, however, died before Murray received any money.

"There are those who feel Dr. Murray is a saint and those who feel he is the devil," Pastor said. "He is neither. He is a human being who caused the death of another human being."
Defense attorney Ed Chernoff implored Pastor to look at Murray's life and give him credit for a career of good works. "I do wonder whether the court considers the book of a man's life, not just one chapter," Chernoff said.

The judge responded: "I accept Mr. Chernoff's invitation to read the whole book of Dr. Murray's life. But I also read the book of Michael Jackson's life, including the sad final chapter of Dr. Murray's treatment of Michael Jackson."

Chernoff suggested that Murray is being punished enough by the stigma of having caused Jackson's death. "Whether Dr. Murray is a barista or a greeter at Walmart, he is still the man that killed Michael Jackson," he said.

A probation report released after sentencing said Murray was listed as suicidal and mentally disturbed in jail records before his sentencing. However, Murray's spokesman Mark Fierro said a defense attorney visited the cardiologist in jail last week and found him upbeat.

The judge said one of the most disturbing aspects of Murray's case was a slurred recording of Jackson recovered from the doctor's cellphone. His speech was barely intelligible and Murray would say later Jackson was under the influence of propofol.

Pastor suggested Murray might have been planning to use it to blackmail Jackson if there was a falling out between them. "That tape recording was Dr. Murray's insurance policy," Pastor said.

Defense attorneys never explained in court why he recorded Jackson six weeks before his death. In the recording, Jackson talked about the importance of making his shows on the comeback tour "phenomenal."

Jackson's death in June 2009 stunned the world, as did the ensuing investigation that led to Murray being charged in February 2010. Murray declined to testify during his trial but did participate in a documentary in which he said he didn't consider himself guilty of any crime and blamed Jackson for entrapping him into administering the propofol doses.

"Yikes," the judge said. "Talk about blaming the victim!"
Murray's attorneys presented 34 letters from relatives, friends and former patients to win a lighter sentence. They described Murray's compassion as a doctor, including accepting lower payments from his mostly poor patients.

In their sentencing memorandum, prosecutors cited Murray's statements to advocate for the maximum term. They also want him to pay restitution to the singer's three children — Prince, Paris and Blanket.
The exact amount Murray has to pay will be determined at a hearing in January.

In the meantime, sheriff's officials said Murray will serve a little less than two years behind bars. A recent change in California law requires Murray to serve his sentence in county jail rather than state prison.

District Attorney Steve Cooley said he was considering asking Pastor to modify the sentence to classify the crime as a serious felony warranting incarceration in state prison.

"This is going to be a real test of our criminal justice system to see if it's meaningful at all," Cooley said.

Michael Forever Tribute organiser GLE put on administration

Didn't we all see this coming. I find it very telling the article states Global Events was only set up in March by film producers Michael Henry and Chris Hunt and both men left the partnership on October 8, the day the concert took place.  Latoya Jackson introduced these producers and the concept for the tribute to her Family. Seems they always get caught up with shady business partners and everything they try to do goes spiraling down deep dark hole.  That's what happens when $$$ signs blind  you and your main objective is Money instead of honoring  the wishes of Michael Jackson ~ Qbee

Jackson show organiser put into administration
Martin Shipton, Western Mail
November  26, 2011

THE firm that staged last month’s Michael Jackson memorial concert in the Millennium Stadium has gone into administration owing thousands of pounds.

Bristol-registered Global Events LLP organised the event, which was boycotted by some members of the Jackson family and which saw a number of announced acts pulling out before the night.

A spokesman for London-based insolvency practitioners RSM Tenon confirmed yesterday that Global Events had gone into administration, adding: “We are currently conducting our initial review of the business.”

Global Events was only set up in March by film producers Michael Henry and Chris Hunt. Documents filed at Companies House show that both men left the partnership on October 8, the day the concert took place.

Yesterday Mr Henry, who runs a film financing company called Limelight Film Finance from an office in London, said: “All enquiries about Global Events should be made to the administrators.”

David Donovan, Wales officer of the broadcasting union Bectu, said: “A number of my members are owed money by the company. We can’t do much to help them because the business has gone into administration.”

 A spokesman for the Millennium Stadium said: “We are not among the creditors. We were paid up-front by the company at the time of booking.”

Up to 50,000 fans attended the Cardiff venue for the Jackson family’s tribute to the Thriller star, who died in June 2009.

The run-up to the concert was beset with difficulties, including a planned ticket ballot based on charitable contributions – later scrapped – and uncertainty over the line-up.

Some family members thought it was inappropriate that the event was staged midway through the trial of Jackson’s personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray, for involuntary manslaughter. He was subsequently convicted.

 In a joint statement, Jackson’s brothers Jermaine and Randy said in advance of the concert: “While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honours our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death.

“In light of this, we feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event and its promoter Global Live.”

 The Michael Jackson Fan Club agreed with the two brothers, issuing a similar statement. Jackson fans posted messages on the concert’s Facebook page questioning ticket prices and the process for buying them.

 There was also controversy over the inclusion and subsequent removal from the list of bands playing of Kiss, whose leader Gene Simmons spoke publicly at the time of Jackson’s death of his suspicions that the star was a paedophile. Jackson was acquitted of child molestation in 2005.

On top of this, Jackson’s estate said at the time the concert was announced that the promoters had never sought or obtained permission from the estate’s executors to use the singer’s name or image.

American hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas pulled out of the show days before it went ahead citing “unavoidable circumstances”.

 But the three brothers who did attend the concert insisted it was a fine tribute to the man known as the King of Pop.

 Explaining why they had chosen Cardiff as the venue, Jackie Jackson said three days before the event: “We wanted to have the event somewhere we could make sure everyone could come and join the festivities.

“I hear it’s a really nice stadium. It’ll be my first time there and I’m really looking forward to going to Cardiff and saying hello to all our fans there and seeing what it looks like because I’ve never been there before.”

IMMORTAL: Michael Jackson's Greatest Recordings Reimagined for Cirque du Soleil

Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, releases
Michael Jackson's Greatest recordings reimagined for Cirque du Soleil

Michael Jackson was a genius of unrivaled artistic grace who gave the world a story that may never be fully absorbed. Eccentric to the point of painful isolation, yet deeply loved by myriad fans of many different stripes, Jackson embodied the extremes of America's glittering, punishing popular culture. His music ranks among its highest achievements, while the details of his life and death, at age 50 in 2009, confound us.

Michael Jackson: Immortal adds another dimension to the Jackson omnibus. He's the third pop star to earn his own Cirque du Soleil production — after The Beatles and Elvis Presley — but he probably should have been the first. No contemporary pop star identified more with the flash and magic of old-time entertainment, which Cirque has so artfully brought into the age of new technologies. And none have been as open as Jackson was to the dark side of the circus arts — to the pomp and tomfoolery, the weirdness of the freak show, the god-defying hubris of the acrobats.

This soundtrack album crafts a new version of Jackson's life story through remixes of his biggest hits and a few obscurities, as well as his own stated favorite songs. The final product forms a brightly colored backdrop specifically designed to suit Cirque's candy-coated acid-trip style. Musical director Kevin Antunes, who's worked with glossy acts like Madonna and Justin Timberlake, uses touchstones from Jackson's life — his childhood as a member of his era's most famous family band, speeches he gave about his love of nature and dedication to helping needy children, the fascination with horror that produced "Thriller" — to form a sonic narrative that's both instantly familiar and sometimes jarring. It's a fitting complement to the Cirque method of dazzling its audiences while also aiming to unsettle them

Medleys like the one devoted to Jackson 5 hits or the hit-strewn "Immortal Megamix" offer a new way into very familiar material ("Billie Jean," "ABC") without really altering the basic ingredients. Sometimes the songs break up as if someone had turned the knob on an old radio; sometimes Antunes throws a snippet of Jackson's speaking voice into his mash-ups. The effect is startling — instead of absorbing the music in the habitual way, you're forced to pay attention, as if you've just walked in on somebody else's listening experience.

It's a fun new way to take on Jackson's music — not offering a ton of new insights, but helping us hear more clearly what we thought we knew so well. Removed from the Cirque production (which is likely on its way to a city near you soon), this soundtrack becomes a kind of Zen stick — it gives your ears a slap and reminds you how fresh these great songs sounded when you first discovered them.

There are some moments of great beauty, too: the voice of the young Michael, ringing like a glass bell, in a minimalist remix of "I'll Be There," or the impeccable, iridescent "Human Nature" given a soft new introduction. Mostly, though, this is music meant to inspired Cirque's body artists and dancers. Lesser-known Jacksons songs like "This Place Hotel" and late-career highlights like "They Don't Care About Us" feature big beats: You can just see the Spandex-clad chorus line busting some smooth criminal moves.

Michael Jackson: Immortal joins a burgeoning number of posthumous releases inviting new listeners (children, for example) and old fans into this classic body of work through a new door. It's always good to go back to the music. The recent trial and conviction of Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, for his part in the singer's death took the world's attention away from his art again, a problem that will always plague his legacy. Jackson was our tragic object lesson, our golden boy genius, our angelic messenger and our most heartbreaking fallen star. But, above all, he was pop's magician. Like the sequined costumes he loved to wear, Jackson's music reflected in seemingly infinite directions, melding elements of jazz, soul, pop, hip-hop, rock, schmaltz, rage, raw eroticism and seraphic spirituality.

Jackson himself compared his gift to the world-creating force of nature itself. "When I create my music, I feel like an instrument of nature," he once said. "I wonder what delight nature must feel when we open our hearts and express our God-given talents. The sound of approval rolls across the universe, and the whole world abounds in magic, wonder fills our hearts, for what we've glimpsed, for an instant, the playfulness of life." Antunes samples part of that speech on Immortal. For a moment, Jackson seems to be right here with us. It's a trick, of course. Michael Jackson, that illusionist, would have loved it

Michael Jackson Estate weighs in on Murray Mockumentary

MJ fans are doing a great job in their fight in just one day they have convinced a HUGE Sponsor Pilsbury Company not to support the Documentary. The company has sent a statement to the Networks NOT to place their adds on the Murray Documentary. Keep up the great work Mfam :) ~Qbee

Michael Jackson fans up in arms over Dr Murray Documentary

No sooner than Dr Murray was found Guilty. Michael Jackson fans have to battle for their hero once again.  Seems we can never get any peace to just honor and celebrate the love, the legacy and music of  Michael.

NBC, MSNBC, Australian broadcaster Nine Network and UK net Channel 4 are among the broadcasters that will rush to air a documentary stating exclusive access to Dr Conrad Murray who was just convicted for the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson.

The Documentary "Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship" and  accompanying exclusive news interview with Murray have both been produced by UK indie October Films, in association with What’s It All About? Productions.

The Documentary will have its U.S. premiere at 10 p.m. ET Friday which will repeat on MSNBC at 9 p.m. ET Sunday. The program chronicles the trial from the points of view of Murray and his defense team, giving "an exclusive look into the past two years of Murray’s life."

Murray will reveal personal details of his relationship with Jackson, his role within the singer's family life. It also will take viewers behind the closed-door meetings with Murray's attorneys. Dr. Murray signed on to the project in 2009, following Michael Jackson's death.  It's unclear how much Money Murray  was paid .

Fans are up in arms over Conrad Murray profiting from his crime. The MJJJusticProject Contacted Judge Pastors office to ask if there were not laws in place to prevent this. They spoke to Judge Pastor's office regarding the MSNBC airing of Murray documentary and was told The Judge is well aware of the situation with the Conrad Murray Documentary

The law does states that a felon can not profit from their crime after conviction and incarceration. HOWEVER, If the terms of the commentary's purchase where completed prior to end of his trial then there is no law to prevent it. Murray negotiated his deal while he was still presumed innocent therefore, it's entirely legal. They asked "So he got around the law?" The Answer was "Yes" 

MJ fans are trying to rally and voice their disapproval and threaten to boycott the networks and sponsors if they air the Documentary. They started calling NBC Universal as soon as news hit that felon Murray’s mockumentary was to air on NBC & MSNBC. So far, they have not responded.

Conrad Murray Trial, Verdict reached - GUILTY

Conrad Murray guilty in Michael Jackson's death.
Verdict reached - GUILTY as seen on TMZ livestream

Judge Pastor: "This is not a crime of mistaken judgement.
This is the crime that resulted in the death of a human being." 

Michael Jackson’s parents have released the following statement:
We have been waiting for this moment for a very long time and we couldn’t hold back tears of joy in the courtroom. Even though nothing can bring back our son, justice has finally been served! We can’t wait to go home and share this day with Michael’s children

John Branca and John McClain, Co-Exec's The Estate of Michael Jackson

He is “the greatest entertainer that has ever lived”  The Michael Jackson Estate

Prosecution's Statement on Conrad Murray Verdict
Updated: Monday, 07 Nov 2011, 3:50 PM PST

Los Angeles - Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley and prosecutors in the Conrad Murray trial held a news conference following the guilty verdict.

"We are gratified the jury saw the overwhelming evidence in this case ... that Dr. Murray is guilty of involuntary manslaughter," District Attorney Steve Cooley said.

He later added, "Finally, we want to extend our personal sympathies to the Jackson family, especially to (Jackson's children) Prince, Paris and Blanket."

The case was "a very strong and powerful message that this sort of conduct does rise to the level of criminal negligence," the district attorney said.

"To the extent someone dies as a result of their playing the role of Dr. Feelgood, they will be held accountable," Cooley said.

The district attorney noted that recent state legislation that calls for inmates in "so-called non-violent, non-serious, non sex offenses" cases to serve their sentences in county jail instead of state prison will "eliminate the potential for a traditional state prison sentence in state prison in this case."

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren, the lead prosecutor on the case, also extended sympathies to the Jackson family, noting that they lost "not a pop icon, but a son and a brother."

"I think that's most important to keep in mind," the prosecutor said.

He thanked the judge for overseeing "a very fair and well-run trial" and jurors "for being so conscientious in their duties."

Defense attorneys had no immediate comment after the verdict.

Jury deliberations begin in Conrad Murray Trial

I am not anxious but a little  nervous waiting for the verdict. Thank God I have a huge family of Michael Jackson lovers who love and support each other through every trial, tribulation and even joyous occasions we have had over the years.  We are not alone.  ~Qbee

Jury deliberations begin in Conrad Murray Trial

The jury in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor begins deliberating Dr. Conrad Murray's late Friday morning. This comes after some emotional closing arguments were delivered Thursday.

Prosecutor David Walgren maintained that the evidence against Murray is "overwhelming" and "abundantly clear." Walgren reminded jurors that this trial isn't just about Michael Jackson – but about his children who will now grow up without a father. The defense argued that the trial was not a "reality show."

CNN legal analyst Paul Callan explains to Carol Costello why he believes the jury will reach a verdict quickly – and why Dr. Murray could be convicted.


I have embedded video recordings of the live stream uploaded by JustMeSTKK  on Youtube for your convenience so you can review the Judges Instructions to the Jury along with Closing arguments from both the Prosecution and defense in the People VS Conrad Murray Trial.
