    Weird reading this thread having been away for a while, and seeing the overall negative/piss-taking vibe. It's in contrast to what I've seen at pretty much all other forums/people in real life, which is a general vibe that he was a weirdo but regardless of that, his music and his persona as an entertainer were awesome- and not just awesome because he was talented, but awesome because, when you look back at his music, videos, concerts etc, you remember just how important and influential and popular he was, and how he connected emotionally with people, how he was the soundtrack to people's lives, you know, all that kinda crap- on the same level as The Beatles or Elvis.

    Personally I'm absolutely obsessed with Michael Jackson and am still youtubing him on a daily basis, and I seem to come from an entire family of MJ lovers, weirdly enough- even my grandparents loved him.

    I'm not sure what this all says about the demographics of cricketweb, but I'm sure it says something interesting.

    Jacko death: Jury finds doctor Conrad Murray guilty | News.com.au

    Conrad Murray just found guilty. Tipping him to be swinging within months. Some people are jail people and some people aren't and I don't think he is.

    It always seemed to me like Michael Jackson fans wanting to blame someone for his death, which was most likely his own fault. The amount of surgeries and as a result drugs he has taken over the years weren't exactly harmless.

    If it wasn't Dr Murray who had given Jackson the drugs it would have been another being pressured into it. People with so much power get what they want whether it is good for them or not.

    It has to be said though, Jackson was a fruitloop. Any man who has kids in their bed is disturbed.

    It wasn't murder, it was involuntary manslaughter.

    If only the BCCI had agreed to using UDRS during the court case Dr Murray would have had a chance.

    I watched the 'This Is It' documentary last year, and it's amazing how good he was when he was on stage. The bloke was one hell of an entertainer, someone with actual talent instead of the Britneys and the variety of two-minute wonders from talent shows.

    I also remember him on a documentary here a while back (can't remember which channel or what it was called...could've been 60 Minutes) when he went into his studio with the interviewer and started singing and dancing a bit. Was incredible, and he was just mucking around.

    what exactly is involuntary manslaughter and what is the maximum penalty that he can get on this?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Four years boi.

    Basically in US law there is two types of manslaughter; voluntary and involuntary.

    Involuntary is just when there is an absence of intention.
