    I think the Michael Jackson's Doctor trial is underway now.

    As for the trunk shooters, I believe the older one was convicted and given the death penalty. Tho I don't think it's been carried out yet - probably never will, or at least will take 25 or 30 years to go round and round through the appeals process.

    The younger one only got some prison time.

    I may be wrong, but that's what I recall.

        I think most killers on death row eventually die of old age before the sentence is ever imposed. Unless of course, the crime was in some way against the federal government, e.g. Timothy McVeigh.

        I don't recall exact details, but there was one would-be presidential assassin down in Miami, FL, back in the 1920's or 30's, who missed the president (or maybe it was a presidential candidate) and killed someone else. He was tried, convicted, and executed, all within about 30 days.
        Now that's the way to administer justice!

          Turn your TV on. If you don't follow the news you wont know what the news is.

              Yep, I was wrong. The older of the two was executed about two years ago.

              Most news events take so long to fully play out, it's hard to keep track. Especially if you don't make a habit of watching the news every day, which I don't. And murder cases almost always drag on for many years, so when a new development makes the news, one has almost forgotten the related circumstances.

              As for Michael Jackson, that was essentially a non-event to me from the outset.

                There is a bit of a funny side to the Michael Jackson trial.

                Apparently at first the family refused to blame the doctor, and wanted to sue the pharmacy--but then after the prescription records were obtained...... it was discovered that the doctor had gotten drugs from multiple pharmacies, just to hide how much he was obtaining.

                Then the family still refused to blame the doctor, and wanted to sue the pharmaceutical company that made the drug,,,,, and the judge said "ummmm, nope".

                So now--only after all the "deep pockets" are off the playing field--is the one person responsible facing the consequences.

                  Well, I guess you could consider that a form of execution, leave them until they rot, it just takes a long time to get done.

                    The trial of Jackson's Dr. was in the news on the radio today. They were playing a tape of Jackson's speech while under influence of the drug which killed him.

                      What is the matter, Alistair, has this forum been running to smooth to suit you? No fights, no locked threads, if you are trying to stir something up, the above post is just likely to do that, why don't you do us a favor and take those kind of things somewhere else?

                        Last I heard Michael Jacksons still dead, most people don't expect that to change but there are still some firm believers that he's coming back soon.

                        I'll keep you posted by PM's so your the first to know if anything changes...

                        Same goes for the shootings - everyone that got shot still did so nothings really changed - one of the shooters that got executed is also still dead.

                        what's really disturbing is that Michael Jackson and the shooter that got executed are not the only people out there that need to "get a life" ;>}

                          Huh? What prompted that?

                          Alistair just asked a question, seeking some factual, objective information. And it seems to me that's exactly what has taken place. The echange has been civil.

                          Any thread or topic whatsoever has the potential to turn into a catfight, but that's dependent on the contributors who make it so. Not simply the one who started the thread.

                            Alistairs a funny guy who has a fascination with some of the goings ons around here - but when your over here you cannot believe how much air time crap like the michael jackson thing gets - so most of us are sick of it including me and JR,

                            still - I understand why it fascinates some i guess and thats why I gave him a smile at the end of my post - he's a big boy and knows how to take a joke...
