Dr - Murray Accused Of Withholding Information From Jackson Doctors

Prosecutors in DR. CONRAD MURRAY's manslaughter case have accused the medic of withholding vital information from hospital staff as they battled to save late superstar MICHAEL JACKSON.
The Thriller hitmaker suffered a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home in June 2009, caused by an overdose of anaesthetic Propofol.
Jackson's personal physician Murray, who is accused of administering the fatal dose, was at the house when the superstar was found unresponsive and escorted him to the UCLA hospital along with paramedics.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and the case went to court in L.A. this week (beg03Jan11) as officials attempt to decide whether there is enough evidence for a trial.
And during the preliminary hearings on Wednesday (05Jan11), Deputy District Attorney David Walgren sensationally accused Murray of hindering efforts to save the star's life by failing to tell doctors at UCLA that Jackson had been given Propofol.
Walgren told the court, "Most notably, Dr Murray would not tell these UCLA doctors about the Propofol treatment, let alone the nightly Propofol treatment he had been giving Michael for the past two months."
Walgren also told the court he plans to call expert medical witnesses to testify that Murray had "deviated from the standard of care", according to Reuters.
Jackson's sister Janet and his mother Katherine, along with various other family members, were in court on Wednesday (05Jan11) to hear the testimony.

Listen Patricparamedic - Dr. Asshole left the room - even you must realize that you don't administer Propofol and then leave the room. You're as ignorant and stupid as Dr. Asshole.

Michael Jackson was 50% responsible for his own death. By now, only those of small mind can believe that a drug addicted celebrity with all the money in the world, didn't hire a doctor who could be his conduit to the "best" drugs on the market.I notice the fans of Jackson always fail to recall that his nurse was upstanding enough to tell him she wouldn't be his drug runner.The fans also ignore the fact that many of these drugs were prescribed - at Jackson's direction - in the names of his own children.The facts are that M.J. was enormously talented. He was also highly troubled. He believed he needed the most powerful drugs on the planet, just to get some much-needed sleep. That part of it is a shame.But the fact is, his reckless use of Propofol - well before Conrad Murray came into the picture - put himself and his children at serious risk. Were I the judge & jury, I'd apportion 50% of the responsibility to Murray, and 50% to MJ.Logic is logic.

i cant believe that michael is dead over this stupid Doctor's ignorant decisions. he was probobly blinded by the light of the superstar and the money he was paid and he did as requested by michael because he felt bad that michael couldn't get any rest...despite failed attempts with other medications. Even at the request of Michael Jackson, he should have never put his life at risk. I know that Michael's tolerance was most likely at a super high level compared to any one else, but the dose was lethal, and the Doctor's decision was negligient at the very least, and to me, and Michaels loved ones and fans and family and friends, it was lethal, and it took a life, and it took Michael Jackson away from us and the world. It took Michael the entertainer, but also the human being, the man...a life was taken...and Doctor Conrad Murray took that life.
