Ruby Mosley, a former patient of Dr Conrad Murray, brought Dr Murray to tears as she testified on his behalf at his trial yesterday.
Ms Mosley (she met Dr Murray when he opened his clinic in Acres Home, where most residents were elderly and on fixed incomes) said of Dr Murray:
"If this man was greedy he never would have come to the community."
Another former patient, Gerry Causey, said:
"The reason I came here to help Dr Murray is I know his love, his compassion, his feeling for his patients, every one of them and I just don't think he did what he's accused of doing."
Andrew Guest testified:
"I'm alive today because of that man. That man sitting there is the best doctor I've ever seen."
The trial continues.
Those spectators outside of the court who have expressed vitriol towards Dr Murray would do well to remember that (whether he is found guilty or not of the charges made against him) those who show compassion deserve to be treated with compassion when they face tribulations.
