Wow. We guess it's not the most surprising defense, but it will be rather shocking if it turns out to be true

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 4 for Dr. Conrad Murray to face his involuntary manslaughter charge for the death of Michael Jackson. According to the prosecution, Conrad's lawyers have prepared a defense claiming that MJ actually caused his own death.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren told sources yesterday that he is sure that a suicide defense is the "direction" Conrad's people are going, which we assume means he's prepared to refute the claim.

Basically, the defense will point out that according to Conrad, he administered only 25 milligrams of Propofol. As 150 milligrams was reportedly found in MJ's system, the defense will argue that Michael injected more of the drug after Conrad left the room.

But who's to say that he really did leave the room? Who's to say he didn't!

We'll just have to wait and see what both sides come up with.

    Would you let MJ Rest in Peace!

    What are the rules for libeling the dead? Because this is libel if the allegations are untrue.

    For someone who loved his kids so much, I highly doubt this is true. He wouldn't have left them that way, no matter how shit things got.

    Of course MJ killed himself.
    You have to be blind, deaf and dumb as a bag of hammers not to know this.
    MJ engaged is self-destructive behavior until he got the job done.
    This is not rocket science.

    I think it's a big mistake for Conrad's lawyers to go that route. Just be honest and admit that you got paid well and that you succumbed to an addict. JMO…

    you are SO SLOW WITH YOUR LAME GOOGLING. YESTERDAY'S GOOGLING NEWS….. we all, well most of us who do go on other sites, ALL READY KNEW THIS WAS THE DEFENSE'S CLAIM. and why is anyone SHOCKED???? The defense attorneys have to present a defense for Dr. Murray. If they don't, they get sued, he gets another trial because of incompetent legal council, so, THEY HAD TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS. Yet, so many are SHOCKED. Just goes to show how many idiots we have in this world….

    I say BS! He had too much to live for. This is Dr. Murray's way of getting a good self defense. Michael cannot defend himself. RIP Michael!

    NEWSFLASH people:

    Michael Jackson is NOT dead.
    Follow the numerous clues.
    Including the picture on his latest CD.
    It's all out there. Subtle but quite noticeable clues.

    If he's telling the TRUTH, then, why not submit to a lie detector test and be done with it?! If I KNEW for a FACT that I was innocent, that'd be the FIRST thing I would want to do!!

    No one does that many drugs without knowing of the possible consequences . . . He wanted to go, he went. No need to feel sorry for him. If he really loved his life that much, he wouldn't have been sneaking around getting doctors to give him all that crap so he could feel better.

    Unless Conrad Murray was told everything that Michael had taken before he gave him propofol I don't think he should be 100% accountable. He should have not given him Propofol to sleep, but Michael Jackson was taken a lot of different drugs.

    Distasteful claim, considering. Let's all just forget how Dr. Murray helped. They appear to be grasping. Michael had access to these drugs because of Murray. As far as I'm concerned, this has Murray bearing partial responsibility at the very least.



  14. 14

    Umm, Propofol is a drug where the user MUST be intubated and on a ventilated while it is being infused. It is very short acting, and must be a continous infusion. Google the drug. For Dr Murray to use it without intubating MJ is malpractice. Secondly Propofol doens't make a person sleep, just in suspended animation. You never go into REM 4 sleep. So he is stupid as well as liable.

    MJ died because he hired a quack doctor to help him sleep with a drug used to put people under for surgery. Anesthesiologists make mad money because they have to constantly monitor their patient during surgery to make sure they DO NOT DIE. Not walk away for 2 minutes to take a phone call.

    Let's see. Murray administered multiple sedatives then propofol, in a bedroom, for insomnia, without monitoring his one patient, left the room and
    his patient alone, was distracted for who knows how long on the phone, was
    not honest with paramedics or hospital personnel about using propofol in
    those circumstances and changed his timeline, conveniently, at a later date.

    So, the defense puts Mr. Jackson on trial as a diversion to the above blatant
    medical negligence and criminal responsibility for his ONE patient's death.
    Murray set aside his Oath for a paycheck.
