Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray Shackled, In Isolation In Prison

A lawyer for DR. Conrad Murray has blasted Los Angeles prison authorities for treating Michael Jackson's physician "like Hannibal Lecter", insisting it's "offensive" to keep him in isolation and heavily shackled.
The embattled medic has been behind bars since early November (11), when he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol, which cost the King of Pop his life in 2009.
Murray was subsequently sentenced to four years in prison, and his civil attorney Charles Peckham claims the doctor is being held under tight security in his cell at Men's Central Jail, and even had his hands and feet cuffed when the two met for a brief meeting on Tuesday (13Dec11).
And Peckham likens the doctor's unfair treatment to that of Anthony Hopkins' movie serial killer, Hannibal Lecter.
He tells the Associated Press, "Treating him like Hannibal Lecter is offensive... This man who saved lives made a mistake, and they're going to make him pay like a mass-murderer."
Murray's former defence attorney, J. Michael Flanagan, was also shocked to see Murray all tied up during a recent visit, adding, "He can't even scratch his nose."
But sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore is adamant the extra security measures are necessary for Murray's own safety.
Whitmore says, "(Murray) is a real target because of his notoriety and because of the Michael Jackson connection. We're just being extra cautious right now. This is because of his notoriety. It's not so much the crime itself."
A probation report suggests Murray was suicidal at the start of his incarceration, and he was admitted to a prison medical ward while he was being held in custody at the Los Angeles County Jail prior to his sentencing.
Peckham is representing Murray in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by Michael's father, Joe Jackson.
Murray is planning to appeal his involuntary manslaughter conviction and he filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (13Dec11) asking for a public-funded attorney to be assigned to his case as he could not afford his own legal counsel.

"Poor Conrad Murray" boo hoo!!! Whoever this lawyer is, he's a damned idiot! It has to be considered that if either Peckham or Flanagan had someone in their family that had been killed by Murray (God forbid!) whether they'd be SO quick to feel sorry for this incompetent, negligent quack!!! I highly doubt it unless of course they're the typically racially bigoted MJ haters that have been feeding off tabloid hogwash for the last 15-20 years! Geez!

So what if Murray is shackled at least he is still alive and can see his kids he left Michael to die so he can go be a hoer married and takling to other womens when he sould have been with his patient .And I'm so sick of people saying if it wasn't Dr. Murray it would have been some other doctor B.S. ther was either doctors before this Man and MIchael was still alive it wasn't the drugs killed K.O.P. it was Murray lack of care he didn't there are poeple who are not dealing with the things Michael had to dael with and go threw but are still have troubles sleeping or just an't sleep at all (sleep in peace MICHAEL ).

No matter how murray is treated its too good for the murder of Michael Jackson.Nothing is going to bring MJ back.The whole world has suffered a great loss and the one that caused it is crying about the way he is treated? I say let the fans and people who love Michael have a ten minute visit with Murray.Eye for an eye and so forth. RIP Michael, you will always be loved and missed.
