Conrad Murray – who has been accused (we all know he did it) of administering lethal amounts of Propofol and other drugs to the late Michael Jackson shortly before his passing on June 25 last year – will legally be allowed to continue working as a doctor, despite being charged with involuntary manslaughter over the star’s shock death aged 50. WTF is wrong with the courts? This clown should have had his medical license taken away, and he should be in JAIL!
In a court hearing in Los Angeles yesterday (14.06.10), Judge Michael Pastor admitted he did not have the power to overturn the decision previously made by another judge. He said: "I don’t have ability to revisit the actions of one of my colleagues. I do not have jurisdiction to revisit this matter. It doesn’t have anything to do with how I feel or what I think. It has to do with the law and this court’s ability to follow the law."
Yesterday’s hearing was the fourth time attempts have been made by the office of California’s attorney general to suspend Murray’s medical license – which allows him to continue practicing as a doctor. I am not sure what the problem is here. He, for all intents and purposes, killed Michael Jackson. Yet he continues to be able to practice medicine. What idiot would want to have this clown as a doctor - not me!
Members of Michael’s family – including his parents Joe and Katherine Jackson, brother Tito and sister La Toya – apparently gasped in disbelief when the doctor’s defence lawyer said taking his license from him would stop him helping people. I gasped as well... this is digusting.
They also argued he needed to continue working to pay for his defence case, and told the judge he had no plans to practise in California. The 57-year-old medic is due in court for a preliminary hearing on August 23. If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, he faces up to four years in prison. We can only hope, but I have this horrible feeling he will end up getting away with this…
