Lawyer: Doctor Found Jackson with Pulse

6/28/2009 7:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonDr. Conrad Murray's lawyer is now saying that when Murray found Michael Jackson, he had a faint pulse.

Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, says Murray went into Jackson's bedroom and saw that he wasn't breathing. Chernoff told the AP, "He just happened to find him in his bed, and he wasn't breathing. Mr. Jackson was still warm and had a pulse."

Chernoff says Murray immediately began administering CPR.

Chernoff says Murray did not prescribe or give Jackson Demerol or OxyContin. Chernoff says any drugs Murray did prescribe were given in response to a specific complaint from Jackson.

There are also reports that the Dr. told the LAPD (ya know, cuz THEY really care that he's passed) that Michael was also "still warm"....sorry, I know it sounds disrespectful, but those are the words being reported as stated by the Dr to the LAPD during his interview with them..... It just doesn't make sense....a faint pulse, still warm.....it's making less and less sense. And while I believe drug addicts and the choices they make to take those drugs are what kill them, I really feel that this is something more than that....... MJ in his most vulnerable as a writer and his most autobiographical...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood (Childhood) I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
But the dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood....

In 1999, the day Michael Jackson admitted he had an addiction to OxyContin and needed treatment was the day any responsible doctor should have known to never prescribe him any addictive substance. It was on this day Michael admitted he was powerless over his drug use and that he needed help. When someone who is fighting to get sober makes this statement, they know they are fighting for their life.

Read that the lawyer for the Jacksons Doctor said that the Doctor only prescribed drugs when Michael Jackson to a specific complaint of Michael Jackson.Thats bull Doctora never precribe on complaints of the patient,they only precribe AFTER throughly examining the patient.I think the Doctor is NOT telling the complete thruth.His hands are dirty............

FOR A MOMENT, IF WE CAN, PUT ASIDE THE HORRIFIC CHILD MOLESTATION ISSUES, FACTUAL OR OTHERWISE, AND TRULY LOOK AT THE OVERALL SITUATION THAT SURROUNDS HIS DEATH. IT'S TRULY A SAD AND HORRIFIC WAY TO BE REMEMBERED. PEOPLE SURROUNDING THIS MAN SHOULD HAVE SUPPORTED HIM, RESCUED HIM WHEN HE WAS TROUBLED, AND PROVIDED HIM WITH THEIR SUPPORT AND NOT JUST ENABLE HIM, PERHAPS PROVIDING HIM WITH DRUGS. I'M SORRY FOR HIM. I'M SORRY FOR HIS FAMILY AND FOR THOSE WHO TRULY LOVED HIS WORK AS A POP ARTIST. MONEY AND GREED IS BEHIND A LOT OF HIS PROBLEMS. IS THERE NO ONE....NO ONE WHO CARED FOR HIS MAN UNCONDITIONALLY....WITHOUT THE THOUGHT OF THE ALL MIGHTY BUCK OR THE "WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME THEORY? NO MATTER THE MANNER, IT'S JUST A VERY SAD SAD SITUATION ALL AROUND.

I really wish people wouldn't jump to such conclusions. If MJ was like most drug seekers, he didn't get the drugs from just one doctor. Usually they go to multiple doctors so no one person knows how much they're actually getting. This doctor may have not even given him any narcotics. And, just because he took Demerol doesn't mean the doctor gave it to him. Anyone can give an injection and it's usually NOT the doctor giving medications. And, if he did we don't know if he gave him too much or not. We don't know if MJ had taken anything on his own before that so that a normal dose of Demerol killed him. We just don't know. Millions of people are devastated by this death, and everyone wants to know what happened, but it's not fair to implicate someone with NO evidence. I'd hate to have some of you guys on a jury because it sure seems like guilty until proven innocent instead of the other way around.

Right. So Dr. Murray was just doing his usual rounds, checking on MJ every few minutes to make sure he was still breathing. And, lo! MJ wasn't breathing! He gave mouth to mouth, but MJ went into cardiac arrest anyway. The doctor tried CPR and called for help, but it was too late. Probably because the paramedics were so darn slow!!!

All the reports that he gave Demerol shots because MJ was afraid of needles are untrue. If he gave MJ lidocaine it was only in response to a "specific complaint" for MJ. The doctor was a hero for trying! And then, selfless guy that he is, he ran away and lawyered up.

Thanks a bunch, Dr. Murray. Next time we want a bucket of lies we know where to go...

Dear "princess pink"

By the sounds of it, you're 12 years old. FYI, Michael Jackson is/was a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE monument in the history of music. Aside from all the allegations and his freakish life, he was one of the best entertainers to grace the stage. Go suck your thumb in the corner until some better "gossip" comes along. I'm so sick of disrespectful people like you in our world.
