The involuntary manslaughter charge filed against Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson wasn’t nearly enough to satisfy the late icon’s father, Joe.
Following Murray’s arraignment on Monday, a disappointed Joe did what he does best – went on Larry King Live to ridiculously say that Michael was murdered.
Joe Jackson never met a microphone he didn’t like to babble nonsensically into, and somehow managed once again to make Michael’s sad death all about him.
The Jackson family patriarch said that Michael’s death was part of a larger plot and Murray got off easy. Michael’s sister La Toya issued a similar statement.

Attorney Brian Oxman seconded that the reckless administration of Propofol by Murray would constitute second degree murder for any victim not named MJ.
Never mind that the charge came after a six-month investigation and that there was clearly no intent by Murray, however careless he was, for Michael to die.
Yesterday, Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother, labeled Murray a monster. That he may be, but a murderer in the eyes of the law is quite another matter.
