Michael Jackson Doctors Cleared

Seven doctors involved in the healthcare of Michael Jackson will not be prosecuted over his death.

Officials in California decided yesterday (28.07.10) not to press charges as part of investigations into his death from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.

However, Dr. Conrad Murray - who has pleaded not guilty to felony involuntary manslaughter charges - was not among the seven cleared.

Brian Oxman, a lawyer for Michael's father Joe Jackson, said he was "disappointed" the Drug Enforcement Agency would not be investigating any other doctors.

He said: "I am very disappointed. The misuse of medications by Michael Jackson in the last years of his life was excessive and to fail to bring that to the public eye is ignoring reality."

Christine Gasparac, a spokesperson for the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, revealed one of the seven doctors was being referred to the California Medical Board for prescribing drugs to an alias used by Michael, but the board refused to confirm any further details.

Despite being involved in ongoing investigations into Michael's death, Dr. Murray is still allowed to practice medicine after a Los Angeles judge decided in June he should be able to continue.

Randy Jackson, one of the late singer's brothers, said: "The recent court proceedings have been difficult for us as a family.

"However, it is a necessary process that we are well prepared to endure in our fight for justice for Michael."

You all have to remember that the cause of death is "acute propofol intoxication." Propofol administerd by Murray, none of these other Dr.s were there or administering drugs. I'm sure that the the proper agencies will deal with them, but Murrray is the only guilty one here. His greedy a$$ didn't even have the decency to hook Michael up to a pulse oximeter or an apnea monitor to check his vidal signs. This man is the biggest idiot to ever lived. I mean duh!!! If it's mandatory to monitor all patients while using propofol in the hospital or Dr.'s office, don't you think you should have the same equipment in your patients home as well!!!!! Murray should spend the rest of his life in jail for murder, gross negligence as well as stupidity. Bodhi: why don't you go see Murray for a check up. As far as Michael being a drug addict, the man went through hell publicly, someone else would have committed suicide. Michael did what he had to do to survive & be here for his children. Please do not judge him, try empathy instead.

It's a darn shame to have to put up with bodhi's crap here. What pisses me off is that we are still grieving over Michael's tragic death & this thing finds pleasure in disrespecting him. This is someone that we loved & admired dearly. Blurting out comments without even thinking through it's thoughts. You're really lucky you can hide behind this computer because if I had physical access to you & Murray, I'd lay hands on both of you. I don't mean in the Biblical sense either. I'd give both of you an a$$ kicking that your greatgrandchildren would feel. I'm not a violent person & I'm a child of God, but both of you really get my goat. I would just have to consider beating the crap out of both of you discipline. Yes I know God would not be happy with me & Michael would not approve, but I sure as hell would feel a lot better letting out all my anger & fustrations. You really need to refrain from disrespecting Michael here. Just know that there are ways to get all of your personal information & pay you a visit.
