Dr Conrad Murray charged

As the convoy of black SUVs arrived at the courthouse near LA airport
my mind went straight back to Sana Maria. Another extraordinary
Michael Jackson media frenzy. In 2005 it was Michael Jackson on trial
- now his personal physician is accused of killing the pop star. The
fans, ever loyal, were present - screaming justice. Just as they did
in 2005. Then, they believe they got it when MJ was found not guilty.
Now they want a guilty verdict. It will be a long process - as one
official said - a very long haul. Day 1 went according to the book. It
was hysterical but ended as we expected. Dr Murray is free on $75,000
bail and due back in court on April 5. He's accused of involuntary
manslaghter. Many more media frenzies to come.
