Michael Jackson Fans To March Downtown One Day After The Anniversary Of King Of Pop's Death
A group unhappy about the justice system's pace in the death of Michael Jackson is planning a rally downtown one day after the one-year anniversary of the pop star's death. The group is encouraging people to show up outside Staples Center on Saturday, June 26 at 11 a.m. for a march to the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery-Homicide Division at the old Parker Center building.
The Michael Jackson Death Conspiracies group states on its Facebook page that " ... the D.A.'s office is choosing a lesser charge of manslaughter when it is obvious from the facts of the case that Conrad Murray should be charged with murder."
The group wants the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the investigators in the Jackson case -- to probe why Murray, Jackson's doctor, has allegedly received kid-glove treatment after being accused of giving the pop star a fatal dose of a powerful drug.
"It is also obvious that the death of Michael Jackson is not fully being investigated ...," the group states.
So there. Good times for the Los Angeles Police Department, especially if people show up for this madness. Others plan to light candles on June 25.
