    I don't understand one thing: why would prosectors ask for 100 million dollars in damages from CM?
    Isn't that a civil matter and not a criminal matter?

    @ banasy:
    I agree. It seems to be a civil matter to me, but I'm not a lawyer. It's also a different state.

    Con'M'-r 'A' 'N' -d Murrays heartless posture warrants any/all $$ and prison time to the Maximum...having intelligence of a Dr. he knew he was practicing outside the norm...

    Regarding the withdrawal of Barney Frank, I did not always agree with his political actions, but I admired him for being forthright about his orientation.
    I once saw him riding a bus in Manhattan. No one seemed to notice him; he was dressed casually and appeared very down-to-earth.
    I like guts.

    I've frequently seen important singers and conductors riding the Broadway bus or subway to work at Lincoln Center.
    Audience members, who would ask for the performers' autographs if they could get backstage, fail to recognize them on the bus.

    Conrad did what he was paid for. It appears the Jackson family can not accept the fact that Michael was a pedofile, a drug addict and had severe mental issues when it comes to kids and growing up. The person who should be in prison is his father who beat and abused him and the other siblings for years. This is just a ploy to take the spot light off the pedofile and the drug abuser Michael Jackson was.

    Set Conrad free after 48 hours. Teach the Jackson family they can not get money for what their son paid for....a Dr. who gave him what he demanded. Also how many other practioners are out there that testified Michael offered to pay them for what Conrad refused to give him. Come on people, right is right and wrong is wrong. Michael Jackson is/was nothing more than an addict. Intervention by his family is too late and the money they are asking for is just to buy Joe Jackson another trip to Vegas.
