Joe Jackson 'Upset' Over Murray's Alleged Defence Argument

MICHAEL JACKSON's father JOE is furious over claims the defence team for his late son's doctor CONRAD MURRAY is preparing a case arguing the King of Pop killed himself with a fatal dose of Propofol.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter amid accusations he administered the powerful anaesthetic which led to Jackson's death last June (09).
On Saturday (04Apr10), TMZ.com reported Murray's lawyers are planning to tell jurors that the singer injected himself with the drug, which immediately stopped his heart, after the doctor left the Thriller star alone in his bedroom.
The alleged defence argument contrasts with the account that Jackson's bodyguard Alberto Alvarez - who made the emergency call to paramedics on 25 June (09) - gave to investigators. Alvarez alleged Murray stopped attempts to resuscitate the star so he could hide various drug vials before calling for an ambulance.
Upon hearing the new report, Joe Jackson has insisted the story can not be true - referring back to Alvarez's statement to Los Angeles police.
He tells TMZ.com, "I don't believe it. It's not true. Why would he (Murray) hide all the bottles if such a story were true?
"The Coroner's report shows the story is not true. This really upsets me to hear this."
The coroner's report confirmed the superstar died from a drug-induced cardiac arrest.
Meanwhile, Murray's representative insists it is too early to know what his client's legal team will use as a defence argument during the court case.
The spokesperson tells NBC News, "We do not know what sources to which TMZ is referring. We only know it didn't come from (Murray's attorney) Ed (Chernoff), who has the final word."
Murray is due back in court in Los Angeles on Monday (05Apr10).

This is the dumbest defense I've ever heard. Who in their right mind is going to hire a Dr. at $140,000 per month just to administer their own medication!!!!! Michael was generous, but he wasn't crazy!!!! What the hell was he paying Murray for if he was sticking himself with the propofol. Murray's defense attorney better try to come up with a different story because I'm sure the jury wont buy this one!!!! I doubt that Murray will ever tell the truth. To Murray Michael hired you to administer the drug & make sure that he wouldnt be in any danger; you killed him. I hope Michael's death torments you untill your dying day.
