The police didn't hold back when they arrested Michael Jackson on suspicion of child molestation. So why should they tone it down when it's a matter of life and death?

So suggests Michael's brother Jermaine, who says that Dr. Conrad Murray should be arrested like any other suspected criminal.

"I think he should be cuffed, he should be fingerprinted, he should have his mugshot just like they did my brother," Jermaine Jackson told Entertainment Tonight.

When this whole process finally gets underway, that is.

"I just feel like it took so long to arrest this guy," the former Jackson 5 crooner continued. "And to just let this go on, it's] putting daggers in our hearts and my mother's."

"Michael's not coming back, so where's the closure?," Jermaine added. "Where is the closure?"

Murray was originally supposed to face arraignment today for his alleged role in the King of Pop's death by propofol overdose on June 25, 2009. But due to a disagreement between the L.A. County District Attorney's Office and the LAPD over the terms of his surrended, the proceedings were postponed until Monday, according to the physician's attorneys.

Meanwhile, family patriarch Joe Jackson has his own opinion about the change of plans.

"They're supposed to do something today, but they're trying to sweep it under the rug," he told E! News Friday.

"I should have been smarter about what [Murray] administered to my brother outside a hospital setting," Jermaine told ET. "Michael was excited about his shows and he should still be here."

Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Céline Dion, Smokey Robinson and Usher sang Jackson's "Earth Song," which was to be a central part of the artist's ill-fated This Is It comeback tour, at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards last weekend.
