…That Was It ???



June 25th, 2009.

That was the day a doctor, or as I like to call him… Conrad “The Conman” Murray, killed the sleepy wreck formerly known as artist Michael Jackson.

Now, you can adore Michael Jackson like he’s a music god, you can hate him like he’s paedophile or be totally indifferent to him like he’s just another in a looong line of dead celebs who you never wanted meet anyway.



Buuuttt when someone dies, especially because of a doctor, you want there to be justice.

That can be tricky because lawyers are evil bastards.

Thankfully, lawyers are people too & so sometimes they make mistakes, like defence attorney Ed Chernoff for example:


“He [Michael Jackson] did an act without his doctor’s knowledge, without his doctor’s permission, against his orders, he did an act… that caused his own death.”



WTF ?

Seriously ???

That kind of defence is just crazy talk.



I mean imagine the following courtroom scene:



Lawyer: “My client didn’t kill anyone, Your Honour !”

The Judge: “Didn’t he sent that bomb package to the deceased ?”

Lawyer: “Yes, but it was the deceased who chose to open it. & when the bomb went off, my client wasn’t anywhere near the deceased or the explosion.”

The Judge: “So ???”

Lawyer: “So, it was clearly suicide.”

The Judge: “…I see your point. Case dismissed !”



So, even if Doc Conman somehow manages to walk away from all of this a free man, it’s good to know that for once it won’t be because of a defence attorney.
