MJ's death: investigation/court case

PROSECUTOR’S GUIDE TO CONRAD MURRAY LIES

CPR must always be performed on a firm surface.  NO bed is firm enough. A CARDIOLOGIST would know that.  The only time you put your hand behind on a patient’s back and do compressions with the other hand is if you’re performing CPR on a neonate (and a small one, at that), NO ONE ELSE. Basic knowledge that any person, but especially a cardiologist, would know.


Jermaine Jackson On Piers Morgan

One thing I must make clear, neither Jermaine or this journalist has the expertise to talk about the effects of propofol. ONLY an anesthesiologist, who works with this drug, does.  Even  doctors of other specialties do NOT have the same expertise as an anesthesioligist.  That’s why they’re consulted to be present during the administration of propofol and other anesthetics during medical procedures in controlled environments.

 


Dr. Murray Targets Arnie Klein in MJ Death

A lot of weirdness in this article…lol

Dr. Conrad Murray is going after Michael Jackson‘s longtime physician and friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, claiming Klein is at least partly to blame for the singer‘s death and should be a defendant in Joe Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit.

0914_conrad_arnie_EX_TMZ

In legal papers filed today and obtained by TMZ … Dr. Murray challenges Joe Jackson’s decision not to name Dr. Klein as one of the physicians allegedly responsible for his son’s death.

In the new docs, Murray quotes from Joe’s lawsuit, “Dr. Klein may have been medicating Michael Jackson up until or even beyond June 18, 2009, less than one week before Michael Jackson’s death.”

And Murray continues quoting from Joe’s lawsuit that Dr. Klein “prescribed or may have over medicated Michael Jackson including to such point that AEG Live, LLC had to hire Dr. Murray in order to separate Michael Jackson from Arnold Klein.”

And Murray goes on to quote Joe’s lawsuit which claims “AEG Live, LLC read Michael Jackson the proverbial ‘riot act’ to get him to stop subjecting himself to overmedication by Dr. Arnold Klein.”

So with all that, Dr. Murray concludes, “The plaintiff [Joe Jackson] does not explain why, given these allegations, Dr. Arnold Klein is not a required party to be added to accord proper relief.”

In other words … why didn’t Joe sue Arnie?

As TMZ first reported, Dr. Klein shot Michael full of Demerol — 51 injections in a 3-month span, right up until the week of his death.

Dr. Murray also points the finger at other doctors who treated Michael Jackson, citing TMZ stories revealing that 7 doctors other than Murray were fueling MJ with meds at or near the time of his death.

Murray’s team also asked the court to dismiss Joe’s wrongful death lawsuit — claiming Jackson doesn’t have the right to file because he’s not a beneficiary of MJ’s estate.


Jackson’s Doctor Manslaughter Hearing On Hold Until January

Come on, this is just too ridiculous to be true! The hearing gets postponed yet AGAIN?!  lol

MICHAEL JACKSON’s family will have to wait until next year (10) to find out whether the pop star’s physician will face a trial and possible jail time for administering the anaesthetic that killed the King of Pop – the preliminary hearing has been set for 4 January (11).

Dr. Conrad Murray attended Monday’s (23Aug10) brief session at Los Angeles Superior Court, where Judge Michael Pastor scheduled the hearing for the New Year.

At that hearing, Judge Pastor will rule whether or not to send Murray’s case to trial.

The 57-year-old medic has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter.

Jackson’s mother Katherine and his father Joseph joined various family members in court for the judge’s decision.

Michael Jackson manslaughter case pushed into 2011

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A key court hearing detailing the manslaughter charges against Michael Jackson’s personal physicianwas pushed back to January on Monday as the year-long probe into the singer’s death dragged on.

A Los Angeles judge set a January 4 date for a preliminary hearing that will give the first official public details of the charges against Dr. ConradMurray.

The hearing had been expected later this year but on Monday the judge said there were issues regarding the availability of witnesses and the ongoing investigation into Jackson’s death.

Dr. Murray has admitted giving the “Thriller” singer a dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid before he died at his rented Los Angeles home in June 2009. He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and is free on $75,000 bail.

The physician’s defense team asked on Monday for permission to retest three samples obtained from syringes and an intravenous drip.

The January 4 preliminary hearing is expected to take 2-3 weeks and will require both prosecutors and Murray’s defense team to produce their evidence. A judge will rule at that time if there are sufficient grounds for a full-scale trial.

About two dozen Jackson fans waved banners outside the court on Monday calling for “Justice for MJ” and demanding that Murray be charged with murder. Jackson’s parents Katherine and Joe Jackson also attended the brief hearing.

Jackson died on June 25 2009 and officials have said he died principally because of propofol, as well as sedatives, painkillers and other drugs.

The judge in the case ruled controversially earlier this year that Murray could keep his California medicallicense while the case goes through the courts, saying he did not have the authority to suspend it.

Michael Jackson Death:Their price of pretending

I’m on the fence about Murray.  I’ve been wondering if this is some test to show how people immediately jump to the conclusion “guilty” before hearing any information in a court of law… Just like people thought MJ was guilty b4 hearing all evidence.

See, I think MJ is alive, therefore Murray isn’t a murderer…


Randy Jackson expresses faith in LA justice system

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson’s youngest brother said Monday that his family is disappointed in a recent ruling allowing a doctor charged in the pop singer’s death to keep his medical license, but they have faith in the judicial process.

Randy Jackson’s written statement came a week after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled he didn’t have the authority to suspend the license of Dr. Conrad Murray. Murray faces an involuntary manslaughter charge in Jackson’s death nearly a year ago. The cardiologist has pleaded not guilty.

“The recent court proceedings have been difficult for us as a family,” Randy Jackson wrote. “However, it is a necessary process that we are well prepared to endure in our fight for justice for Michael.”

The statement said the Jackson family was disappointed in the ruling, but expressed support for the California Attorney General’s office, which sought to suspend Murray’s medical license until his case is decided.

“Despite our strong feelings about the outcome, we have continued respect and faith in Judge Michael Pastor, the Deputy District Attorney David Walgren and our judicial system,” the statement read.

Randy Jackson had to be hospitalized after experiencing chest pains the day after last week’s court hearing, and he thanked doctors and fans for their support.

“I am feeling much better, invigorated and spiritually strong,” he wrote. His statement did not address what doctors had determined happened to him.

Randy Jackson accompanied his mother and father and siblings LaToya and Jermaine Jackson to last week’s court hearing. The Jackson family has shown up to all court hearings in Murray’s case.

BREAKING NEWS : After Murray now also AEG seems to have their part in Michael’s death. Contract shows Murray requested for a heart resuscitation unit and a medical assistant from AEG. “AEG hired, directed, controlled and demanded Dr. Conrad Murray…”

What will come out next???  If indeed Murray gave him the propofol, and especially since there was no medical equipment, whether AEG or God himself had promised the equipment, makes no difference.  It was major negligent behaviour and should have resulted in immediate suspension of Murray’s medical license. In fact, even if he DID have the equipment, the fact this wasn’t done in a hospital setting still qualifies it as negligence, at the very least.  Boy, what a crazy story! Unbelievable really, in every sense of the word.

Conrad Murray requested but never received lifesaving gear from the concert promoterorganizing Michael’s London shows, documents obtained by The Associated Press show. E-mails and a proposed contract detailing Dr. Conrad Murray’s negotiations with concert promoter AEG Live reveal the requests for a heart resuscitation unit and a medical assistant. Neither apparently was in place when Michael died last June 25 after Murray administered a mixture of sedatives, including the anesthetic propofol, in an attempt to get the chronic insomniac to sleep.

Propofol is extremely powerful and is usually administered only in medical settings with emergency equipment on hand

. Patients are normally constantly monitored. Murray was alone when he gave the drugs to Michael. After he realized the sedated star was not breathing, he performed CPR but was unable to revive him. Murray has pleaded not guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge in Michael’s death. His proposed contract with AEG, which included a monthly fee of $150,000, was not finalized before Michael’s death. Murray never received payment for his services.

The documents concerning Murray’s requests are included in a complaint filed by Michael’s father, Joe, to the California Medical Board against AEG Live. The complaint accuses the promoter of Michael’s comeback “This Is It” shows of engaging in the “unlawful practice of corporate medicine.” It also accuses the company of forcing Murray to provide Michael with dangerous medical services.

Michael Roth, an AEG spokesman, said the company had not seen the complaint and could not comment on it or the contract. Murray’s lawyer Ed Chernoff declined to comment. Murray had known Michael and treated him and his children occasionally in recent years but was working for AEG at the time of Michael’s death, Chernoff has said and the complaint states.

The AEG agreement would have covered Murray’s work while Michael was preparing for the London shows and throughout the concerts last summer. “AEG hired, directed, controlled and demanded Dr. Conrad Murray, a medical doctor, to medicate Michael Jackson, provide Jackson with dangerous medical services, and to give Michael Jackson controlled substances and other drugs without providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation equipment or nursing assistance as it had promised in writing it would provide,” the complaint states.

Murray’s request for the medical equipment and assistant were first made to a concert tour business manager, an e-mail message shows. The request was later mentioned in Murray’s contract. The language stated AEG “shall provide Dr. Murray for his use during the term with medical equipment requested by Dr. Murray to assist him in performing the services as approved by (AEG).”

The equipment is described as a “portable cardio pulmonary resuscitation unit (‘CPR Machine’), saline, catheters, needles, a gurney and other mutually approved medical equipment necessary for the Services.” The complaint states Murray signed the document a day before Michael’s death. An e-mail sent to Murray during the negotiations explained a delay in the contract’s drafting because it was a “rare event” for a physician to be hired to care for a singer on tour.

E-mails also show the contract was still being reworked two days before Michael’s death, which happened a week before he was to travel to London for the “This Is It” shows. A spokeswoman for the California Medical Board said complaints filed to the agency are confidential unless it takes any action. The board receives 8,000 complaints a year, according to its website. Joe Jackson’s attorney, Brian Oxman, confirmed he filed a complaint with the California Medical Board but declined to discuss it.

In his complaint, Joe Jackson — who has repeatedly criticized AEG Live since shortly after his son’s death — accuses the promoter of agreeing to pay Murray vastly more than he was making so that it could exert control over his medical decisions. Joe Jackson’s filing cites a 2008 income declaration by Murray in a child support proceeding in which the cardiologist stated he earned only $3,300 per month.

Contract: Jackson doc requested lifesaving gear

By ANTHONY McCARTNEY and and THOMAS WATKINS (AP)

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s doctor requested but never received lifesaving gear from the concert promoter organizing the singer’s London shows, documents obtained by The Associated Press show.

One Year After Michael Jackson’s Death – A Review

Thanks nancyvet from:

http://thedeathofmj.forumotion.com

Interesting…

However, I do tend to believe that if indeed MJ was murdered, by high-profile, or powerful individuals, it would have been done so so as not to lead to suspicions of murder.  There are too many weird “consequenses” in this case for anyone NOT to question, including the fact that it was propofol that “killed’ him.  As a murderer, not wanting this to be thought of as a murder, I’d make sure it appeared he’d overdosed on pain killers, or just regular sleeping pills. Dying of an unusual drug, which most people never heard of, and especially at the hands of a cardiologist who apparently didn’t do proper CPR, rings huge alarm bells in my head, leading me to investigate further, something which a murderer would not want…

It is now almost a year since the news of Michael Jackson’s sudden death hit the media on June, 25 2009 – an incident that changed the public image of the late superstar completely. “Everybody’s weirdo” turned within hours into everyone’s angel. And the media turned from negative propaganda and ignorance to promoting countless t.v specials and new DVD releases over several months after his death. The sudden publicity gave his devoted fan community many new members. People needed to talk about their loss. Many new internet forums popped up like mushrooms in Autumn, to fill the empty space in people’s hearts that Michael Jackson left behind.

Whilst for the majority, life went back to normal after the mass media moved its focus away from Michael Jackson to more profitable news, the speculations about the circumstances of his death kept boiling over in the fan communities on the internet. Private investigators and cutting-edge researchers brought more and more details of Michael Jackson’s life and death to light in an attempt forge a clearer picture of the reason behind his unexpected death. Early speculations included the theory that Michael Jackson had been assassinated by the American or Russian Secret Service with the help of Electromagnetic Radiation Weapons (EMR). Another theory was his supposed planned statement during his upcoming concerts in which he wanted to warn the world about mass vaccinations being used as a mass genocide program by the secret world government. Jane Burgermeister, who herself worked as a public advocate of the mass genocide theory, and who was supposed to be connected to Michael Jackson, later denied in an interview with Project Camelot ever meeting Michael Jackson knowing anything about his being involved in a anti-vaccination campaign.

Although there was a wide interest in all kinds of speculations on the internet, the mainstream media only picked a few of them to present to the masses. Not the speculations about his murder. Not the ones that talked about criticism about mass vaccination, but the ones that spoke about Michael Jackson’s ghost being spotted at Neverland and his diamante glove going under the hammer.

Soon, the myriad of speculations on the internet were overshadowed by the one giant theory – Michael Jackson faked his own death. And he will be back for the biggest show ever! Internet forums solely dedicated to this very topic became the most popular place for Michael Jackson fans to find new hope. Michael Jackson suddenly turned from a victim into a hero, from a King into a God or an Angel.

Michael Jackson in disguise at his own funeral?

Dedicated fans promised Michel’s return for the one year anniversary of his death. Others interpreted a secret plan into the words he spoke near the end of the movie “This Is It”: “we have three years to get it right”. Which would be around the time of the famous year 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar, and for many people, the end of the world as we know it. So, Michael Jackson was supposedly still alive, hiding, playing games with the media, giving hints to his fans. The vast majority of fans followed this new fashion, whilst the possible murder speculations of the early days after his death became very quiet. The internet was now dominated by the “Michael Is Alive” fan army, that fiercely guarded this theory and refused to allow anything remotely mortal get within an inch of their living angel.

Is it just in our human nature to hold onto beloved things, or was this theory supported by the people who murdered Michael Jackson?

Nobody from the mass media was asking the question about a possible murder at first, and that would have probably been ideal for some people, but something must have happened and the question started being raised by his own family. The statements by Jackson family members about their speculations of a possible murder couldn’t be kept under the carpet. So, a solution had to be found to cover up the activities of the real murderer(s).

The murderer(s) needed a fall guy. And, because we, the masses, never think more that we really need to (which is normally not much because we are conditioned to receiving everything that’s given to us as finished opinion since childhood), they thought, “let’s just make it easy for them and take the doctor that was there that night, Dr. Conrad Murray. And let’s just repeat it often enough that he is the murderer until it becomes a common fact.”

How is it possible that all facets of the media are blowing the same horn? Is it possible that there is a network all across our society that works in secrecy on a common agenda? Or perhaps just a network of people who do favours for each other and help each other out of trouble? In any way, the mass media is an extremely powerful instrument and it wouldn’t be the first time it has been misused for propaganda and disinformation.

Michael Jackson himself was a very connected man, although our public picture of him as a private person is the one of an introverted and almost shy personality, who liked to be left alone in his dreamland at Neverland. But if we take a closer look at the people who surrounded him during his whole life, we find deep connections to the underworld and secret societies. Although the Mafia and the Freemasons don’t appear to be the same kind of animal at first glance, one has to admit that the internal structure of both organisations and networks is very similar. Both are governed by a strict hierarchy, both have similar initiation rites, and both work in the shadows of the society. Even the dress code seems to be similar. Same thing, different flavours.

Michael Jackson was deeply influenced by the Mafia and the Freemasons in his artwork. Gangster video-clips, Freemason symbolism all over the place. Was this just some quirk of his, because he liked gangster movies and because he read about the Freemasons in one of his thousands of books? Just something he found cool?

It might be, but if we take a closer look at his connections, it appears that his interest in the Mafia and Freemasonry was more than a passing fad.

As already written about in some of our previous articles, Michael Jackson was connected to several underground figures through some of his close friends and business partners.

Brian Everett, a private investigator who worked on a case to discredit Michael Jackson in 1993, says this about Michael’s Mafia connection:

“Michael Jackson’s family was in a world of organised crime, and had been, for years. Jermaine was married to Berry Gordy’s kid, this is the founder of Motown Records. This was back in 1973, you don’t need to search too deep to see this is an organised crime connection. One of Motown’s big names was, Barbra McNair, her husband was shot dead in his Las Vegas home in 1976, a mob hit victim, He was a known FBI informant. Where do you think Steve Wynn of the Golden Nugget and the Mirage Casino got the money to start the casinos? I think this is a ‘no brainer’. And the list goes on and on.”

The London Daily News wrote in June last year:

“Speculation is building that Michael Jackson was targeted by members of the mafia in Los Angeles in what was believed an attempt by various disgruntled creditors to recover millions of dollars of money owed on failed business ventures. Sources in Los Angeles believe various “high-ranking” members of the underworld had been given orders to approach Michael Jackson in an attempt to recover money given the stars apparent rise in fortunes. The star is believed in an act of desperation may have overdosed on sleeping pills in a desperate last ditch attempt to avoid a gruelling 50 date tour in London and confrontations with the underworld. An autopsy of Michael Jackson is likely to take place in the next few days, with funeral arrangement yet to be confirmed.”

Brian Everett also says that during his time working for the film and music industry, he learned that the Mafia connections run very deep:

“The music industry is a mafia….this is historic fact, no need to doubt it, just read the history…..My boss the PI that first started the case against MJ, was an FBI organised crime informant [also a historic fact: "Casino" the movie is about some of the people that did not like my Boss]……Berry Gordy and Johnny Gee…..”they don’t know connected guys”…HaHaHaHa!!!….why help the cover-up?…..Johnny Gee is Rebbie Jackson and her Dad’s good friend.

[…]when we buy a CD, it is not in our thoughts, that so much of the music world is part of organised crime. This is why Michael was so easy for them to target. Years later, He started to know what was pushing him around, and then it got dangerous!.”

That was 1993, when Michael Jackson was publicly accused of child molestation for the first time. Was he targeted by underground figures who wanted him publicly destroyed so as to get onto his money?

Al Malnik, (far right), known as close friend
of mafia boss Meyer Lansky

Brian adds, “Organised Crime….It comes in all flavours, and the record business would not be what it is without it. Decca Records and the Jukebox teamed-up in 1934, and mined gold out of poverty. This is the true starting point. But next, Frank Sinatra and his “friends” started Reprise Records. In 1960, it became part of Warner Music. ‘The Boys’ in Florida and New York controlled this action. [anything that says different, is just a front.] MCA is the other big name. In the early days, it became Universal. MCA…this history cannot be hidden because of Moe Dalitz, Melvin Belli and Meyer Lansky, these guys all play a part in the Jackson Family history[…]Warner Chappell Music Division manages the MiJac Catalog for the Jackson Family [and always did]. So, do some reading, if this is interesting?. Your view of Michael Jackson’s world will change. Now please go to the news stories about Tommy James [of "Crimson and Clover" fame] and the Mob, his history will soon be a major film. What changes in the public’s opinions would we see, if the [Jackson] family is part of organised crime?.”No no!” you say, “they were victims.” All of them?[…]Melvin Belli was very good friends with Moe Dalitz, “Mr. Mafia” of the MCA Record Co. Oh, and if you don’t know? this is “Universal” and part of the Mafia history i think we all should know.”

And what about one of the most hated people in the Michael Jackson community, Tommy Mottola? He and Michael Jackson had a lengthy relationship as business partners, and a huge falling out in 2001. Michael Jackson was so upset over a dispute about the promotion of his album “Invincible” that he canceled his contract with Sony and left. He publicly called Tommy Mottola, back then CEO of Sony, a devil and a racist. He went on aworldwide campaign speaking to his fans about the way he was treated at Sony, as seen on several fan videos on the internet.

Salvador Astucia, author of several books on the subject of assassinations, says about Tommy Mottola:

“For the record, I wish to state my view on Michael Jackson’s harassment and death based on substantial research regarding the last 17 years of his life and his tragic death in June 2009. Here goes: ‘There is no question that a murder contract was placed on Michael Jackson by Tommy Mottola, former head of Sony, and Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League.’”

In 1975, Mottola founded the Don Tommy Enterprises. Brian Everett says:

” ‘Don’…it is a nice nick-name for him…It makes you wonder, is it possible that some of the MJ history is not hidden, but just not talked about? If the Mob was part of MJ’s story, who would talk about it? A person that knows the information, is going to be a person that can’t say too much about it. And I think the public is so dense, that no amount of hints will ever spark public interest in this “possible connection”. So I would guess that the truth might be a forever hidden victim of the public’s innocents. Let us look at the elements: The Music Business, Organised Crime, Las Vegas, Teamsters, and the people that fit into this grouping? No! that can’t be important!!! Michael Jackson and LaToya/Jack Gordon, only come to Las Vegas for the buffets! “I KNOW THIS IS TRUE” [being a Teamster in the Movie Business, and working for the casino's…plus working as a private investigator in Las Vegas, I KNOW the power of the buffet counter.]“

Regardless of how true or real the Mafia connections in the music business are, one would be right to wonder why we never hear about them in the mass media. This is either because it is all nonsense, or because the connections run so deep into the media network that they are able to influence all major media outlets to not cover such a story. A secret network of friends, a club, structured maybe like the Freemasons. If this is true, did Michael Jackson know about the secret network?

There is not much known to us of Michael’s direct connection to secret societies like the Freemasons. But their secret occult symbolism has been very present in his artwork throughout his career. Michael Jackson is of course not the only popular artist who used symbols of secret societies, and not every pyramid or every pillar means that the person filmed and photographed with it is an active member of an occult circle. But the symbolism in Michael Jackson’s artwork is too obvious to be just a coincidence or a fashion.

The motive for murder could be speculated about until the end of time, or until the murderer’s confession. What are the common motives for a murder? Hate, jealousy, money, power? I can’t say much about hate and jealousy with regards to Michael Jackson. I would say that nobody who was very close to him could have been in a position to hate or to be jealous enough to want to kill him. Maybe a religious fanatic who disliked his image of a child molester. But it’s not likely that some stranger just decided to dedicate his life to get into Michael Jackson’s house and into his life to finally kill him. Probably not even for money and power.
It is more likely that is was someone around him. Someone he knew. His business partners, friends, family? This is, without pointing the finger at anybody, the most common circle in which to find a murderer. But as far as i know, none of these close people have ever been investigated by the police or the FBI. Why? And why is everybody so quick to point the finger at Dr. Conrad Murray?

Who is Dr. Murray anyway, and how was he able to get into Michael Jackson’s life? Not much is known about his past, and the information that’s available doesn’t always match. His age for example, varies between 52 and 56. In videos, he appears like a puppet, an empty drone, or, what probably hits the nail on the head the most accurately, a stool pigeon. Put there by hard-working hit men, paid by the people who don’t want the truth ever getting into the news.

Is Dr. Murray an MK-Ultra slave, a mind control victim, a split personality, created by a secret group and kept available for a case like this, to work as a cover?

Photos from his lawyer’s website show Dr. Murray wearing Freemason symbols. Is this a lead worth following, or just another cover?

Dr. Murray’s case will be in court again soon and the masses of fans will keep shouting for justice. But, one question will remain in the back of our minds: What if Dr. Conrad Murray was not the murderer?

Joe Jackson, Michael’s Father, Urges Calm Heading into Dr. Conrad Murray’s Trial

Published May 13, 2010 by:

Ron Hart

Joe Jackson, the father of the late Michael Jackson, has urged fans of the King of Pop to show restraint in as the trial of his son’s doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, begins.

Michael Jackson, even in death, has an extremely large and dedicated fan base. It is a fan base that is very vocal and demonstrative in its support for Michael Jackson. In many ways, the sheer numbers and commitment of

Jackson’s fans have led to the many high profile posthumous awards and gestures of recognition that has come his way in recent months.

Since his passing, Michael Jackson has been honored by the Grammy Awards, had his Captain EO ride re-opened at Disneyland, and had growing numbers of tributes on social networking sites such as Facebook; all just to name a few.

While surely appreciative of the efforts of his fans, Joe Jackson, however, is urging them to focus their efforts and energies on peaceful demonstrations and tributes dedicated to Michael Jackson.

In a letter addressed to Michael Jackson’s fans, Joe Jackson wrote about the upcoming trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, “”We would like to urge fans that are planning to attend to please do so in peace, unity and love for Michael. There should be NO violence, NO slander, NO yelling, and NO bad-mouthing or name-calling of Murray or his supporters…By calling names, we are lowering ourselves to their level.”

Joe Jackson himself is no fan of Dr. Conrad Murray; he has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the doctor himself.

But it could very well be that Joe Jackson is accomplishing two objectives with this letter to his son’s fans. One, he could feel that he is honoring Michael Jackson’s legacy by focusing on love and peace rather than hate and rancor. He also could have another motive as well. He might believe that if he takes the high road and urges millions of Michael Jackson fans to do the same, he stands a better chance of winning his court case, as public and court sentiment may strengthen if he is perceived as handling everything the ‘right’ way.

Reaction in the Michael Jackson fan community tonight to Joe Jackson’s comments is mixed. There is still a great deal of anger and sense of loss when Michael Jackson’s fans think about the late

King of Pop. To hear from anybody that they should contain their feelings is difficult for many to accept. That said, there is also a recognition that no matter how unfair Michael Jackson’s death may have been, the ultimate tribute to him is to stay above the fray and maintain a focus on peace and justice.

As Dr. Conrad Murray’s trial begins in the upcoming weeks, it will be interesting to see if Michael Jackson’s fan base heeds the advice of his father, Joe Jackson.

Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray and the Need For Regulatory Reform

Wallace Goodstein, M.D.

Plastic Surgeon

Posted: April 2, 2010

Nineteen years ago, I was in my twelfth year of practice in plastic surgery where I shared a surgical suite with Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon. Though I never personally treated Jackson, I observed his possessiveness over his patient. At this point of his career, Jackson had reached the height of his popularity with international fame and recognition for his incredible talent. Though Jackson had undergone numerous plastic surgeries in the mid eighties, he still retained the facial characteristics and likeness of who he was — which is far from what can be said about his condition at the time of his death.

With the many surgeries that followed, Jackson was left as the shell of who he used to be. The excessive and overly frequent plastic surgical procedures and the use of skin bleaching agents destroyed his physical appearance. You didn’t need a medical license to see that.

In my opinion, the accompanying prescription of narcotics destroyed his stamina, spirit and health. After every plastic surgery, there is a recovery and with every recovery there are pain relieving drugs. In Michael’s case, these drugs became an escape from the disappearing man in the mirror.

Eighteen years ago when I suspected that this was the beginning of Michael Jackson’s path to destruction, my colleagues, as well as many on the California Medical Board, and even the media shied away from accepting this as a reality. Instead, my relationship ended on less than cordial terms with my colleague and I received a menacing letter from a high profile attorney who warned me about discussing any aspects of Michael’s care. It was not until 2002, when I was asked to do an analysis of Michael’s facial photographs for “Dateline, NBC” that I was able to bring some of these issues to light. Even then, I was brought before a committee of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (where I had been a member for approximately 25 years) because of a complaint filed by an anonymous member alleging that I had violated my privacy oath. This charge was dismissed on a number of grounds.

The most pressing dilemma for doctors, medical regulatory agencies and politicians is how to distinguish between those who serve the needs of patients truly benefiting from medication and those who engage in overprescription and the enabling of individuals on the path to addiction. There must be a middle ground between overzealous prosecutors and regulatory agencies and the “blind eye” approach that was taken in Michael Jackson’s case. Accommodating Michael’s desire for relief from his emotional pain with drugs and surgery did him no service. The failure to investigate the physicians who contributed to Michael’s demise along the way is a disservice to society and to my profession. Attorney General Jerry Brown’s decision to investigate the trail of prescription narcotics in the Anna Nicole Smith case is a step in the right direction.

I am now in my 32nd year of practice. Watching the medical profession suffer from years of losing our autonomy (and perhaps our dignity) to insurance carriers and government regulators has given me perspective. In many ways, Dr. Conrad Murray’s plight symbolizes the decline of our profession. On one hand, he represents the physician today who is strangled by debt resulting from diminishing reimbursement, large malpractice premiums, and high overhead costs. Many doctors today can empathize with him on these grounds. It’s understandable why a doctor would want to seek out a niche in concierge medicine, with less oversight and more profit. On the other hand, that very doctor can contribute to the decline of the profession when unethical treatment leads to, say, the death of an individual who has been addicted to drugs for many years stemming from surgeries — some warranted and some reckless. We read about these stories only when an international celebrity is involved. But it is a far more prevalent problem. Convicting Dr. Conrad Murray may appease the public’s anger and sadness over his role in a beloved icon’s death. But unless there is true and effective regulation and oversight, not from government officials, but amongst doctors themselves, such a conviction will not help prevent history from repeating this all too common tragedy.

Regulatory reform is needed in several areas. State government regulation of physicians is currently wasteful and ineffective. Investigations should be carried out by individuals with medical knowledge and training. The solution lies in early and impartial investigation. It also calls for overhauling the regulatory system which bankrupts physicians for poor record keeping and ignores real abuses. It calls for medical malpractice reform. The current system drives up medical costs for patients and causes physicians to practice defensive medicine spending more time with their charts than with their patients. Finally, regulation of the insurance industry itself is required in order to end its immunity from competition and its ability to write its own rules its own rules. Recent events in Haiti and Chile have reinforced the idea that doctors’ most important function is care giving and not compiling time consuming and excessive documentation for insurance companies and the attorneys.

Most importantly, we must conquer the selfish aspect of human nature that distances us from concern for the common good. If we do not, statistics from drug related deaths will continue to mount, hospitals will continue to shut down en masse, and the quality of medical care in this country — once the best in the world — will continue to decline.

LAPD & District Attorney Take “Extreme Measures” To Keep Michael Jackson Autopsy Photos Private

Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine Jackson has the LADP and DA taking extreme measures to keep the images of his autopsy safe from computer hackers. Katherine is distressed over the possibility of the images being published in all over the world. Officials at the Las Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and the Las Angeles District Attorney’s office are doing everything they can to make sure that the images in their possession remain secure. A source told the National Enquirer, “There are genuine fears the pictures could be leaked or that computer hackers could get to them – and the LAPD and District Attorney’s office are taking extreme preventive measures to keep them secure.”

The source went on to explain that Katherine feels the publication of the images would be disrespectful and damaging to her grandchildren. “Katherine says releasing the photos is morbid and disrespectful to Michael’s memory. She’s still dealing with Michael’s death and she’s extremely worried about his kids seeing pictures of their dead father. Katherine said she hopes and prays that decency will prevail and no one will ever see these photographs.”

Michael Jackson’s personal physician wants to postpone his manslaughter trial again.

10/05/2010

Dr. Conrad Murray has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter for his role in the ‘King of Pop’s death from acute Propofol intoxication by intravenous injection of another last June. He made his first appearance in a Los Angeles court on April 6 in a hearing that lasted less than 30 minutes before the case was postponed to June 14.

Murray’s legal team has now claimed it may not be ready for the rescheduled preliminary hearing next month because it has still not received all the documents relating to the case.

Miranda Sevcik, spokeswoman for Murray’s lawyer Ed Chernoff, told gossip website TMZ that his team have only received 3,500 pages of the manslaughter criminal file. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has claimed it has “hundreds of thousands of pages of material”.

A spokesman for the District Attorney’s has insisted the report that there were “hundreds of thousands” of pages of documents was false, as there are only “thousands of pages”.

The representative said Murray’s legal team had received “the bulk of” the paperwork.

Sevcik says Chernoff does not believe he has the complete file, and is planning to ask to delay the upcoming hearing further if he doesn’t get all the information quickly.

The preliminary hearing will determine whether Murray can keep his medical licence, and whether he will face a full trial.

LOS ANGELES — The lawyer for Michael Jackson’s doctor says there will be no plea bargain in the involuntary manslaughter case, though he worries whether an impartial jury can be seated for a trial in the death of one of the world’s most famous and idolized entertainers.

The case against Dr. Conrad Murray is complicated, involving drugs, dosages, medical protocols and other complex issues. Defense lawyers and prosecutors are crafting their legal strategies ahead of a summertime preliminary hearing where much of the evidence may become public.

Already, potentially damaging information about Murray has been revealed.

An autopsy report found Jackson died from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol. In a statement to police, Murray acknowledged giving Jackson the drug and other sedatives to help him sleep, then briefly leaving his bedside. Cellular phone records show he made at least three personal calls around the time Jackson was stricken.

A Jackson employee who said he was in the room while Murray worked to save the pop star told police the doctor interrupted CPR to collect drug vials.

Murray maintains his innocence, and his lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has said nothing that he gave Jackson “should have” killed him. Chernoff noted the Jackson employee gave a different version of events to police in another statement.

“You may find after you are done watching the trial that it is not nearly as cut and dried as has been presented,” Chernoff told The Associated Press in a recent interview. “One thing that simply will never be the truth is that Dr. Murray pumped a bunch of drugs into Michael Jackson and walked out of that room. He’s not that kind of guy.”

The King of Pop was 50 when he died on June 25 in his rented Bel Air mansion, on the brink of a series of comeback shows in London. Murray, a 57-year-old cardiologist with practices in Houston and Las Vegas, was hired by the superstar to look after his health during the rigorous rehearsals and planned to accompany Jackson to London.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren will seek to prove the doctor acted with “gross negligence” when he gave the singer propofol to help him sleep.

The anesthetic is supposed to be used in hospital situations for surgery and patients are to be monitored constantly by anesthesia professionals. The drug’s effects are intensified when used in conjunction with other sedatives.

Prosecution experts are expected to say it was reckless to use it in a private home without proper equipment.

TMZ has reported that among the defense strategies being discussed is the possibility Jackson administered the fatal dose himself. Chernoff declined to discuss how he might defend Murray and said a final decision won’t be made until he hears the prosecution’s theory at the preliminary hearing.

Regardless of what prosecutors present, he said there will be no plea bargain.

“Plea bargains are for guilty people,” he said.

Realistically, there’s little incentive for either side to push for a plea bargain.

Prosecutors brought a relatively minor charge with a maximum sentence of just four years, so there’s not much room to negotiate down.

“The district attorney didn’t overcharge the case,” said celebrity attorney Harland Braun, whose clients included Dr. Allan Metzger of Los Angeles, an internist and rheumatologist who had a close relationship with Jackson and was godfather to one of the singer’s children. “They are charging what they think they can prove.”

Murray already is deeply in debt and pleading to a felony would open him to liability in a civil damages trial. The Jackson family has spoken of suing Murray for wrongful death.

To gain a conviction at trial, prosecutors will have to walk jurors through Jackson’s complicated medical history as well as the events leading up to his death. That will be crucial, said Ellyn Garafalo, a prominent defense attorney who is representing a doctor charged in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case.

“The biggest hurdle they have is to show whatever Dr. Murray did caused Michael Jackson’s death,” she said. “They’re going to have to say he knew or should have known that what he did could have resulted in death.”

An element of the defense theory, Braun said, may be that Jackson was a demanding patient who insisted on propofol, a drug he had taken for a long time.

“The defense theory is Michael Jackson needed it, wanted it, knew the danger and took the risks,” Braun said.

Garafalo said that while such an argument can be made in an effort to persuade the jury, it is not a legal defense.

“It’s like saying I asked someone to shoot me and he did, so he’s not guilty,” she said.

Prosecutors will argue that the doctor bears the ultimate responsibility for his actions and can’t be absolved because the patient may have pressured him to do something he should have known was dangerous.

Jackson’s celebrity is sure to influence the case and Chernoff worries about seating a jury.

“There is a real concern that we have about getting a group of jurors that are going to come into court and are not going to have any preconceived notions of guilt,” he said.

But publicity in this case is everywhere, he said, so seeking a change of venue is unlikely.

“The problem is we have this around-the-world stuff,” said Chernoff. “Even in the O.J. Simpson trial, people in Uganda didn’t care about it. But in this case, they care in Uganda and everywhere else.”

Meet The Judge Set To Decide The Fate Of Michael Jackson’s Doctor

image Michael Pastor

10/04/2010

This is the judge set to decide the fate of Michael Jackson’s former doctor Conrad Murray.

Judge Michael Pastor, who has been described as “one of the toughest, smartest” arbiters of justice in the US, was appointed as the judge in Murray’s involuntary manslaughter case, which began on Monday at the Los Angeles Superior Court.
He has overseen cases involving topless pictures of Cameron Diaz and Jason Priestley’s DUI.

In the afternoon hearing, a motion by the California State Attorney General’s Office on behalf of the State Medical Board was put on hold until June 14.

Murray made back-to-back appearances in separate courtrooms in front of a large contingent of Jackson family members, including the late singer’s mother, Katherine, father, Joe, and siblings Janet, Jermaine and Randy.

First, Supervising Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza assigned the case on to another judge, just minutes after Murray was presented to the court.

Then, spectators and the media were whisked off to a lower floor, where Murray appeared before Judge Pastor.

Pastor, in the interest of full disclosure, told lawyers for both sides he was appointed to the bench by Attorney General Jerry Brown back in 1983 when Brown was governor of California. Brown reportedly wants Murray’s licence suspended.
Pastor also wrote a letter of recommendation for prosecutor David Walgren, who is looking to become a judge. He told the court that he doesn’t think either issue will affect his judgement.

Conrad-Murray

Michael Jackson case – Dr. Conrad Murray’s lawyer, ‘I tend to win, and I intend to win this time’  – Dr. Conrad Murray, who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of entertainer, Michael Jackson, appeared in court Monday for a procedural hearing. At the hearing, the judge postponed a decision on Dr. Murray’s medical license in the state of California. After the hearing, Ed Chernoff, the doctor’s lawyer, gave an exclusive interview to ABC. ABC broadcast the interview on its Good Morning America program Tuesday morning.

Mr. Chernoff said:  “Dr. Murray is not guilty of causing the death of Michael Jackson. Period.  A conclusion was made, and the investigation conducted in order to back it up.”

When asked about the police investigation into the case, he responded:   “They wrongly blamed my client, and I think it was an easy call for them, and they justified it later.”

Recently, a defense strategy, which may or may not be a rumor, has been floating around the airwaves that the defense may claim that Mr. Jackson injected himself with more propofol in Dr. Murray’s absence, thereby causing his own death.  ABC said that Mr. Chernoff would neither confirm nor deny that they may claim this in court.

However, Mr. Chernoff did say:

“I don’t know what Michael Jackson was doing.  Dr. Murray is just now learning what he may have been doing. As we get further into the case, and deeper into the case, that may become clearer.”

He went on:

“Dr. Murray has no desire to portray Michael Jackson as anything but a saint. Ok? But Dr. Murray’s on trial for his life, and the facts have to come out, and they have to come out clearly. If that’s injurious to any particular party, then it’s just going to have to be done.”

Mr. Chernoff concluded the interview by throwing down the gauntlet to the prosecution.  “I tend to win,” he said, “and I intend to win this time.”

Dr. Conrad Murray was the physician treating the entertainer, Michael Jackson, at the time of his death on June 25, 2009. He has admitted to administering propofol, an operating room anesthetic, to the singer in order to help him sleep.  The coroner’s report stated that Michael Jackson, 50, died from “acute propofol intoxication.”

The next date in court for Dr. Murray  is another hearing set for June 14, 2010.


Lawyer: Conrad Murray Did Not Kill Michael Jackson

By TheImproper, April 6th, 2010

conrad-murray

Ed Chernoff, the high-powered lawyer for Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, blasted media reports that his client tried to hide evidence and delayed calling for help on the day the King of Pop died last June.

“It’s just a bold-faced lie,” Chernoff said. “[The] doctor called 911 as soon as he could. Let me just say, unequivocally, he did not  he was not cleaning up any bottles. The scene was not consistent with anyone trying to clean something up.”

Murray appeared in court Monday (Apr. 5) for a preliminary hearing.

Chernoff claimed in an interview this morning (Apr. 6) with ABC’s “Good Morning America” that investigators rushed to blame Murray in the star’s death.

Chernoff seemed to be setting up an O. J. Simpson style defense, in which he will blame police for an incompetent investigation.

Lawyers successfully defended Simpson in the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and friend Ron Goldman, by claiming police botched the investigation.

Murray is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter for allegedly administering a lethal dose of hospital anesthetic Propofol as a sleep sedative. The drug has no legitimate use as a sleep aid.

He pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in February, and could face up to four years in prison, if convicted. Jackson family members blame him for the singer’s death.

“Let’s say that this extremely famous, worldwide personality like Michael Jackson was found dead under unusual circumstances such as this,” he said.

And the police came out and said, ‘We’ve investigated and we just, we can’t really put the blame on anybody at this point.’

“What do you think would happen then?” Chernoff said.

“I think there was a tremendous amount of pressure to find somebody to blame. I think that was Dr. Murray. I think, my personal opinion, a conclusion was made and the investigation was conducted in order to back it up,” he added.

“If the prosecution’s theory is that Dr. Murray injected a bunch of drugs into Michael Jackson, walked out of the room and he died as a result, that’s absolutely false,” he said. “Dr. Murray is not guilty of causing the death of Michael Jackson. Period.”


Conrad Murray — I Will Never Cop a Plea

He’s relieved they didn’t take away his CALIFORNIA license, LOL    God, TMZ is good…lol

Posted Apr 6th 2010 3:00AM by TMZ Staff

Conrad MurrayTMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray has made it clear — he will not take a plea bargain in the death of Michael Jackson.

Sources say Dr. Murray is adamant … he did nothing wrong and will not plead to manslaughter or any lesser offense.

TMZ first broke the story of Dr. Murray’s defense … that Michael Jackson accidentally killed himself by self-injecting a fatal dose of Propofol into his bloodstream.

Dr. Murray, we’re told, is “completely confident” that he will be found not guilty. He is less confident that the medical boards in Texas, Nevada and California will reach a similar result.

Dr. Murray is extremely relieved Judge Michael Pastor did not yank his California medical license yesterday. Nevertheless, he realizes it’s all but inevitable all three medical boards will go after his license.


Conrad Murray to Face Trial Judge

They’re procrastinating…

Members of Jackson’s family, including Joe, Katherine, Janet, Randy and Jermaine sat and watched as Judge Peter Espinoza told Dr. Murray to go downstairs to Judge Pastor’s court.


TMZ first reported Judge Pastor — a smart and tough man in black — will preside over Murray’s trial.

Murray is on his way downstairs right now … and there’s a big decision on the line … whether Judge Pastor yanks Murray’s medical license as a condition to bail.

We’re in Judge Pastor’s court … so stay tuned.


Conrad Murray — Still Licensed to Practice

So basically, nothing was done in court today… June 14, huhhhh?

Posted Apr 5th 2010 4:59PM by TMZ Staff

Conrad MurrayDr. Conrad Murray dodged a bullet in court today — a judge put off ruling on whether Murray should have his medical license suspended.

Judge Michael Pastor, in the interest of full disclosure, told lawyers for both sides he was appointed to the bench by Attorney General Jerry Brown back in 1983 when Brown was governor of California. Brown is the one who is gunning for Murray’s license.

And, in the “small world” category, Judge Pastor revealed he wrote a letter of recommendation for prosecutor David Walgren, who is looking to become a judge.

Pastor said he doesn’t think either issue will affect his judgment.

All sides are due in court again on June 14.

Dr. Murray: I Won’t Put Them Under in Texas

Well, he shouldn’t be putting people “under” in any case, lol

He’s a cardiologist, not a surgeon.

Posted Apr 5th 2010 12:41PM by TMZ Staff

Conrad MurrayTMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray struck an agreement with the Texas Medical Board which will prohibit him from administering Propofol or other heavy sedatives.

Sources tell us the agreement mirrors the current condition to Dr. Murray’s bail in his criminal case — the doctor cannot administer or prescribe Propofol. He is also barred from administering “any other heavy sedative medications that should generally be administered by any anesthesiologist. And he’s prohibited from sedating patients.”

We’re told Dr. Murray has signed the order and the Texas Medical Board will announce it on Friday.

Nevada has not imposed a similar prohibition to Dr. Murray’s license.

Jackson’s Demanding Personality On Trial

Good one TMZ, LOL   This is the funniest story ever….   Cola addict…. LOL  I especially love it that it’s Coke and not Pepsi, LOL

And trust me, people will take this seriously,lol

Posted Apr 5th 2010 9:00AM by TMZ Staff

Michael JacksonIt sounds crazy, but Michael Jackson‘s Coca-Cola addiction may become a building block in Dr. Conrad Murray‘s legal strategy.

TMZ broke the story that Dr. Murray’s defense will be that Michael Jackson caused his own death by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his own body during the time the doctor was out of the room.

Sources familiar with the defense strategy tell us one of the missions is to show that Michael Jackson was a demanding celebrity who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, even if it posed a danger to himself.

One of the ways the defense will prove its point is with the famous soft drink. Jackson consumed massive quantities of Coca-Cola, knowing full well it was laden with caffeine and would make it next to impossible to fall asleep.

Our sources say the defense has numerous examples of situations where Jackson hyped himself up with caffeine from soda and then used drugs — including Propofol — as the ultimate sleeping solution.

The upshot — Jackson was a guy who wanted instant gratification … so the notion that he would wake up when Dr. Murray was out of the room, become frustrated and self-medicate with Propofol is consistent with his personality.


Murray’s rep attacks Jackson suicide defense

I know nothing about the legal system, but shouldn’t the defense already have a defense strategy?
What do they mean by “People’s theory of prosecution”? They’re waiting to see what angle the prosecution takes before they formulate a strategy? I would think they would have worked on this long before now…
Seems all BS to me…

Access Hollywood
updated 7:07 p.m. ET, Sun., April 4, 2010

LOS ANGELES – Dr. Conrad Murray’s team is attacking a new report that claims to know his defense strategy in the coming Michael Jackson homicide case.

“We do not know what sources to which TMZ is referring,” a Murray rep told Access Hollywood in a statement on Sunday. “We only know it didn’t come from [attorney] Ed [Chernoff] who has the final word.”

The rep added that they “will not be trying the case in the press,” and were waiting to see how the prosecution intended to approach the case.

“In any case, it is premature to discuss defense strategy,” the rep said. “Dr. Murray’s defense will depend on the People’s theory of prosecution, which has not yet been made available to the defense team.”

Earlier on Sunday, TMZ reported that the defense team would claim that it was the King of Pop who injected himself with a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol — not Murray.

The doctor, who served as a personal physician to Jackson during the icon’s final weeks, is due in court on Monday.
