Jackson Autopsy Released As Doctor Pleads Not Guilty To Involuntary Manslaughter

The Los Angeles Coroner has confirmed reports MICHAEL JACKSON died of "acute propofol intoxication" after he was given a powerful anaesthetic used to relax patients before "major surgery".
In an autopsy report, released on Monday (08Feb10) by the Los Angeles County coroner's office, the authorities ruled Jackson was administered the drug in a manner that did not meet agreed medical standards.
Examiners wrote, "The standard of care for administering propofol was not met (and) recommended equipment for patient monitoring, precision dosing, and resuscitation was not present."
The release of the autopsy came as Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter.
Dr. Murray stands accused of administering the anaesthetic, which killed Jackson.
Murray was released on $75,000 (£47,000) bail and had to surrender his passport.
The judge told Murray he cannot use or prescribe anaesthetics for the foreseeable future, stating, "I do not want you sedating people."

I was right. to say the thing I said about the case involving Dr. Conrad Murray. The Judge said the is not allowed to give anyone anymore medications. and he is out on bail, and taken away is passport. he can not leave. And must go to court. Now the family of the Late King Of Pop Michael Jackson need to file a mal-practice, suit against the doctor. I am not going to applogize for my statements. because as I said, if I was proven wrong. The Hon.Judge,statement and actions proved I am right. May God have mercy on him. You know they would have tortured, him in jail in LA. Like the Jackson's song say's Its Torture,and the woman dressed in white with the whip. And all those monsters this was just make beleive. But Michael was hurt to the point of losing his life. That was torture.

could get 4 years? that is justice? you get more for shoplifting in california. he should get death row! he killed MICHAEL JACKSON! four years?? with good time is 2 years. and with a good attorney that could be home confinement and probation. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN. where is the L.O.V.E.? manslaughter is killing another human being. life is precious, once gone, never back. NO ONE should be able to take someones life and only get 4 years. come on People vs.Murray... do Justice;life in prison at least.

Not guilty my A$$...Murrey has not once apologize or taken any responsibility for his part in MJ's death. Then he had the nerves to refuse to sign the death certificate & flee leaving his car behind. His actions make him appear guilty. I don't understand...this system sucks! You can get 10 years for 1 gram of cocaine or crack, but 4 years for killing someone. This is the f***ing TWILIGHT ZONE. I miss you so much MJ.

The Law here in the USA states not guilty until proven guilty.What we know for sure, we still have to have a day in court. That's our system if we like it or not. Even if we know the truth, it still has to go through our court system............

Is someone's life so invaluable that Dr Murray can have bail?I dont understand what the courts are trying to say.Does this mean that Dr Murray is deemed harmless?Harmful or harmless, he killed Michael through wrongful administering of the drug without proper equipment by medical terms.What was the intended expectation to happen without the equipment? If Dr Murray was unsure of what he was doing, he should not have continued treatments. He is definiately guilty.What did he think he was doing putting Michael to sleep like he was putting down an animal.
