TMZ reports Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock took credit for David Walgren’s and Deborah Brazil’s prosecution of the Michael Jackson case. The news reports, “It’s pretty stunning, Cooley was flanked by his number 2 Jackie Lacey, and D.A. honcho Pat Dixon. Choosing Lacey is an audacious move on Cooley’s part, since he personally chose her to run as his successor in the 2012 election.”
Betty Pleasant also takes the opportunity to say “Get off my TV.” She addresses the irritating showboating of Steve Cooley and his side kick Jackie Lacey. She says she has kept silent about the Michael Jackson trial with no opinion of either guilt or innocence, but regarding the press conference, she states the “pitiful, showboating, grandstanding mess of a press conference District Attorney Steve Cooley held on TV immediately after the jury convicted Murray of involuntary manslaughter, during which Cooley preened and gloated and praised and patted himself and his staff on their backs for having done an outstanding job of nailing the doctor — while his right-hand woman, Jackie Lacey, stood silently by his side with her heart glowing all over the place. It was sickening.”
We have to agree with Betty Pleasant. Cooley comes out of his hole when the media blitz is beckoning, but when violent and horrible murder trials come to a close, Cooley is no where in sight, and no where near the fine prosecutors in the DA’s office, to congratulate them, who thankfully are in charge of the trials instead of Steve Cooley.
The prison overcrowding crisis created by Steve Cooley and Jackie Lacey’s failed policies over the last ten years have paved the way for Conrad Murray’s freedom. Steve Cooley might as well hold a press conference with a News Flash: Message to criminals – Do a crime and pay no time! Or how about this slogan: Murder the King of Pop, Don’t Stop.
