Dr. Conrad Murray: Guilty in Michael Jackson Manslaughter Case

Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty in his manslaughter trial.

The doctor was charged with the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson and faced a maximum sentence of four years in prison and the loss of his medical license.

Michael Jackson trusted Conrad Murray. He trusted him with his life,” prosecutor David Wahlgren said in closing statements to the jury.

Michael Jackson went into his personal bathroom and swallowed Lorazepam and Dr. Murray didn’t know,” defense attorney Ed Chernoff told jurors in his closing statement. “Somebody’s got to say it … If it were anybody else but Michael Jackson … anybody else, would this doctor be here today?

DO YOU THINK jurors made the right decision in the Conrad Murray case?

Michael Jackson died from Michael Jackson. I don’t care what he started or what he’s the king of. The man had problems and another individual pays the price.

# 3

He needs to go into jail for like two to four years for his irresponsible and griefy behaviour. It goes without saying that he never should practice medicine again !!

# 4

Everyone knows that Michael killed himself, this guy was just the scapegoat for what Michael did to himself.

# 5

Finally MICHAEL can rest in peace. Wonderful result.

# 6

What sucks is that it really wasn’t this guy’s fault. More of Michael Jackson’s fault and this guy’s life is ruined forever. He lost his medical lisense and will be going to jail. I feel like this waskind of injust.

In the end this doctor was paid to look out for Michael Jackson, & he ultimately died because of this doctors negligence. Any doctor that Ok’s the treatment Jackson was getting is just in it for the money & should pay for it.

# 8

Whatever, it won’t bring Michael back. Is the doctor pulling a Lindsay Lohan and getting out of jail the easy way?

Murphy had several kids by several different ******. he was tlaking to some of his baby’s mamma’s /****** while MJ was on his way to death.
all this shows poor judgement and moral character of Murphy.

Murlhy saw the dollars , plenty of money being MJacksons ‘s docotr. MJ found Murphy because he knew Muurphy was easy, on the slide.
Both Murphy and Jackson are guilty.

MJ died . MJ was adicted to prescript meds. MJ had precripts for precript drugs without Murphy.
Murphy, a shady doctor, is of the se fabric of character, values as Dr. Nick9Elvi’s doc) and Anna Nicole Smith’s doc.

Murphy should not ,not, have jail time.
No med license. He has no money.
He cannot vote and things being a convicted felon.
His life is over. The ****** have all these kids for a used to be doctor who has no money.

My point there is some people will do anyhting for money. Name the price. have a baby with a man who , she thinks has money so she can get her money. Jokes on all these girls now.
Some people like Murphy will do anything for money like through away a career.

too bad, too sad for all parties, MJ, the slkanks, the kids, and esp. Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson from whoever their biological mothers were and fathers were
. It is too abd these kids will nmot be able to grow up and be unleashed from the hands of the money hungry , grabbing Jackson family. Paris, Pricne, Blanket will forever be in the public crazy spotlight hat surrounds MJ and the 2nd generation , their first cousins will be trying to get in on their money, make a singing group with them, etc. Those poor kids will NEVER be free.

I agree with you guys that Michael knew what he was doing (though I’m sure he didn’t mean to kill himself) and is to blame himself, but medically, this guy was negligent – end of story. He would have never prescribed MJ with all those drugs if he was being monitored and that is what obviously scared him into not calling the ambulance when Michael died.

Dayum, hard times.

MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A DRUG ADDICT!
PLANE AND SIMPLE.
HE KILLED HIMSELF
PERIOD

I feel bad for this guy,
Michael was a drugie , He paid this Dr. to give him what he wanted, Like all people with money do!

DOCTORS HAVE THE RESPONSIBLITY OF PEOPLE’S LIVES. MURRAY KILLED MICHAEL JACKSON.

Michael Jackson was addicted to presciption medication, no doubt. BUT Murray was just as guilty for feeding him with it. Justice has been served.

Stupid people just WANT someone to blame!
NO justice has been served, Quite the opisite really, This poor Dr. Now has to pay for a troubled addicted pop singers dirty habbit & his fans who refuse to believe MJ was a loser junkie…

I agree with Jill. Michael Jackson was his own worst enemy!!!!

This Doctor is definitely guilty of killing Michael. He knows that Propofol can only be administered in hospital setting yet he gave it to him. To make matters worse he even left him that’s why he didn’t notice the bad effect on Michael and didn’t even call 911 immediately.

Well, I don’t think it would have mattered if he was innocent because he will always be remembered for this, accident or not…

Is Conrad Murray guilty of murder? No. But is he guilty of manslaughter? Absolutely yes. He provided his patient with prescription drugs (which are just as bad as any other kind of drug) and lethal amounts at that. Murray’s irresponsibility as a doctor and lack of concern or regard for Mr. Jackson’s health place him completely as guilty in this case for enabling and contributing to the death of Michael

This is pathetic Michael did this to himself and his family all of a sudden they are sad and concern about him why now he is gone they are just after money and fame . I’m sure they knew michael was taking all kind of drugs .

Even if Micheal Jackson had his addictions and caused his own death Murray was a doctor and took an oath !! When he was first hired and the first time Micheal wanted the drugs he should have said NO instead of taking the money he received while working for the Jackson’s.
If he had walked away Micheal would have found a different doctor and Murray wouldn’t be the one on trial that doctor would be instead. Now he will probably be sued by the Jackson family as well in civil court.
So Murray pays for his greed with jail time while Jackson pays for his addictions with death. Everyone pays.

I totally agree with this verdict. First off, Lorazepam is highly addictive and should ONLY be prescribed for short term use, 2-4 weeks.
Second off, It was completely obvious that Michael had an addictive behavior, plastic surgery being one of them.
There is absolutely no evidence that was reported to show that the ‘doctor’ was trying to scale his prescription drug use back.
The lack of weight gain was also another factor, as it seems his ‘doctor’ seemed to either not notice, or just didn’t care.

Sure, michael was a druggie..

But doctors arent supposed to knowingly cater to druggie’s insane habits and demands. He should have jail time for his choices.
