Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Bodyguard Says He Froze At Sight Of Body

MICHAEL JACKSON's bodyguard ALBERTO ALVAREZ has appeared in court to testify in the preliminary court hearing concerning the singer's death, reports the Press Association. The trial is seeking to determine whether or not there is sufficient evidence for DR CONRAD MURRAY to stand trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. Authorities say the doctor gave the singer a lethal dose of the powerful anaesthetic Propofol before he died on June 25 2009.
Giving evidence yesterday (6th January 2011), Alvarez spoke of how he frantically obeyed Murray's orders to bag up medical equipment including syringes before ringing for an ambulance for Jackson. The 32-year-old confirmed that he was the first guard to arrive at the singer's room after being alerted of a disturbance. Alvarez said he saw Jackson lying on his bed connected to an IV tube while Murray leaned over him doing "one handed chest compressions to try to revive him". The bodyguard added that he became 'frozen' at the sight, noting, "I said, 'Dr Murray, what happened?' And he said, 'He had a reaction. He had a bad reaction".
Murray, a cardiologist from Houston Texas, has pleaded not guilty and his lawyers have stated that no drug he administered should have killed the singer. If tried and convicted, the doctor could face up to four years in prison.

-Michael Jackson is the symbol of the USA, is the most loved man on the planet because he loved us and played for all the suffering in the world!Had a moral duty to personally supervise the investigation of death King of Pop and fight with us for immediate punishment of the murderer.Michael Jackson was a man, was God's emissary on Earth, but it all of us have humiliated and I killed!I think American doctors were paid to let him die, he must do everything possible to science now to revive it with the price disclosure biggest secret in medicine, especially for people held elected to rule the world!Michael has fought all his life for a better world without poverty, without wars, without children abused and hungry and tried to change the vision of leading the planet, but was removed, was dangerous to their plans of mass destruction!Shame on the entire American medical system, remove all the biological weapons area you have prepared for mankind, remove the cancer treatment was not so many innocent people die for no you will not live forever!

I don't feel that 4 years is enough As far as i'm concern we are wasting the tax payers money even going to trial. The evidence that has been present so far proves to me that this was a cover up from the beginning and that he did let Michael die. So as far as i'm concern he should pay for what he did.

Murry is the one responsible for MJ ding. He walked away to chat on his phone take a dump whatever, now MJ is dead. The evidence will show he is careless anybody knows you dont give CPR on a soft surface so what if a rib is broken you can live with abroken rib you cant live with a dead heart. He Murry was gone longer than 2 min. and knew that when he saw MJ he was dead.

I feel very sickened when I read these article, the trust that Michael placed in the wrong hands, unfortunately caused him his death. This man is going to get 4 years for involuntary manslaughter, this is not fair..he gets to be free and Michael gets s**t on, he can't be here with his family, his fans..anyone that loved to watch him and see the goodness that poured out of each pore of his body. If God hears our prayers Murrey will never see the light of day, there is no forgiveness in anyones hearts for the neglect that he caused, I find only one thing in solace, his life will be in ruins and he will always be known as the pirrah that stole Michael Jackson from all of us. He has to live with that, if he has a concience. I love you Michael.

It could be that the judge has the power to send this doctor to prison for life and throw away the key........maybe a judge has that power in the end.............after all isn't always the judge who says the last word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
