Michael Jackson Doctor Found Guilty. Something’s Not Right

Some people will be doing cartwheels over the verdict that found Michael Jackson’s doctor guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Now I won’t claim to have been 100% keen on the trial because for me it wasn’t going to bring the King of Pop back. Also it is hard to keep a keen interest on a trial happening in the United States when I am all the way this side. Sure I loved Michael but at the same time, I am like, OK…

Dr Conrad Murray was portrayed as a reckless doctor while the defence pretty much said that Michael was a druggy who was out of control.

Somehow I believe the truth lies somewhere between the two opposing arguments. So while I think there is a certain sense of justice you sort of leave with a feeling that something is simply not right.

For one, it will not bring Michael back. The justice thing will probably mean more to his family than some random blokes on a boat far-removed and not as invested in the situation as people close to the king. So maybe they can make sense of this and find some sort of closure.

It’s not that I don’t care. I just think there are other pertinent issues.

At the end of the day, I guess  it was always going to be hard for the doctor to prove that a highly sedated and probably KO’d Michael Jackson was going to take some more pills which would result in his death.

Dr Murray, you could have come up with a better defence.

But as The Roots’s Questlove said on his twitter: Guilty. Now What?
