Los Angeles (CNN) - When Michael Jackson died unexpectedly two years ago, his fans worldwide erupted in a torrent of grief, anguish and - in tribute to the pop icon - song and dance.

On Monday, there were hugs, tears and shrieks of joy among his fans packed outside a Southern California courtroom after a jury found Jackson's physician, Conrad Murray, guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death.

Jury finds Murray guilty

"Oh my God, guilty!" one woman yelled out, seconds after the verdict was announced.

Others appeared to almost break out in song; some seemed to start dancing; and a chant soon rose up of "Justice, justice, justice."

    Jury did the right thing. This physician lost sight of his calling, caught up in the prestige and money, enabling MJ's addiction. Fame becomes infamy now. Curious that the max sentence (4 yrs) will be less than what someone arrested for marijuana selling, or vehicular manslaughter would max though.
