It has officially begun.
To recap, Dr. Conrad Murray is being charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, and he's currently on trial over the excessive amount of propofol he allegedly administered to the singer.
Last we heard about the trial, MJ's oldest kids Paris and Prince were expressing interest in testifying against Dr. Murray.
Now, the trial has started, and the defense is claiming that Dr. Murray should NOT be found guilty because Michael "caused his own death by taking the drug propofol after his doctor left the room in a desperate attempt to overcome his chronic inability to sleep."
Here's what the prosecution is saying in response:
"That misplaced trust in Conrad Murray cost Michael Jackson his life. He left him there, abandoned him to fend for himself."
"Basic common sense requires 911 be called immediately. Basic common sense. And we know that was not done."
What do U think? Is Michael Jackson resonsible for his own death? Or should Dr. Conrad Murray be held accountable, even if MJ gave himself the drug that caused his death???
