Killing the King of Pop is not an adequate substitute for exercise!
Just ask Dr. Conrad Murray, the man convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson!
His health in prison declined rapidly over the past year and, at one point, that he feared life-threatening blood clots were forming in his legs and admitted himself into USC Medical Center.
He described the pain and terror:
"It progressed until the leg felt numb … it was painful all to the top of my foot … around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf."
Yikes! That sounds scary!
In a phone call Dr.
Death Murray made from the Big House, he accused his jailers of neglect — apparently he can't get the proper amount of exercise in his tiny cell.
licensed doctor not so smooth criminal explained:
"I have had to lay in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5×7 cell."
While a man convicted of killing one of our idols shouldn't spend his sentence sipping piña coladas at Club Med, Dr. Murray is entitled to adequate medical treatment and a place to occasionally stretch his legs!
