MJ Trial

I have never been a fan of Michael Jackson or his music but that's not to say his death and life didn't shock me. Last night when I got in from an evening out I turned on the news and the trial Dr Conrad Murray was on air.


I decided to watch it and one hour in I was still hooked. There have been some things that have already nearly reduced me to tears. The fact that his children saw the whole thing, that there was clearly a delay in getting the emergency services and that horrendous photo on MJ lying dead on a hospital bed. For all intent and purposes keep it in the trial room and not for public viewing. 


Any trial on this scale can only generate a lot of speculation and opinion. Outside the courtroom there were MJ fans holding placards saying "Murderer" and "Dr's don't kill". He is being trialled for manslaughter which in my MY opinion is what he should be trialled for. I don't think he murdered him because to murder someone means you have intent to end their life. I don't think Dr Murray intended to kill MJ at all.


He was just very foolish and I believe he deserves to lose his medical licence. 


I think the thing that has shocked me most about the whole case was the drug Dr Murray used. As soon as I heard it I screamed "PROPOFOL! Who the heck uses that to help someone sleep?!" I have seen propofol used a lot.


In an anaesthetic room, in a hospital. It is only licensed (here in the UK anyway) for use in medical facilities only. Even if a small dose is used a patient should be intubated. It's an anaesthetic, it will stop you breathing and it is certainly not a sleeping pill. I find it hard to get my head around how a doctor does not know that?!


I am not a lawyer, have no law background and I most certainly don't know all the facts. But it sounds like MJ was very impressionable and Dr Murray was very unprofessional. I do believe your're innocent until proven guilty but I do think MJ's death was totally preventable. I believe his kids could still have their father today and I really hope justice happens. 


I'm interested, what do you guys think of all this?

I agree with you! I think that he was clearly not acting with the idea of "First do no harm." in mind and should lose his license to practice.

Agreed! That was a very stupid move on the Dr. Im in the same boat, I do not know all of the facts. I've never had much interest in MJ and try my best to never turn on the news. That being said, MJ was very wealthy and could probably get whatever he wanted and being who he is people would probably do whatever for him. I think it was a dumb move on both of their faults. I don't think he killed him on purpose and it's very sad his children witnessed any of that and are now fatherless. Very sad!

I also agree with you. I haven't been watching the trial, but I also think that there are certain things (like photos of people after they have died) that shouldn't be for public viewing.

As part of legal evidence I can see how it's relevant, but how is Joe Bloggs possibly going to be helped or benefited in ANY way through having seen that picture?!

I agree with you on everything however, I cannot bring myself to watch this because of his children. I tried hard to get into it, but after hearing about his kids seeing everything happen, I got way too emotional. Those poor things had no business seeing everything and must be traumatized. It just makes me too sad :((((((((


Love, Mere

I loved MJ! This guy needs to pay for what he did. I know MJ was no angel and I would not be surprised if he injected the meds himself when the dr wasn't looking.

But the point was he should never have ordered those meds in the first place.
