Dr. Murray to Cops:

I Gave Jackson Propofol

7/28/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Dr. MurrayWe've told you since July 15 police believe Dr. Conrad Murray administered Propofol to Michael Jackson -- the drug that killed him. There's a reason police believe it. Dr. Murray told them.

Two days after Jackson's death, Dr. Murray told LAPD detectives he administered Propofol to the singer hours before he died ... this, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

We're told Dr. Murray gave Jackson an IV drip of the powerful anesthetic. Police believe Dr. Murray simply wasn't paying attention when the singer's heart stopped beating.

Authorities believe Dr. Murray may have actually fallen asleep during the time the drug was administered and may have awakened to find Jackson already dead from heart failure.

An IV drip of Propofol allows a constant, steady infusion of the drug for a period of time determined by the person administering it.

It is considered reckless in the medical community for a doctor to administer an IV drip of Propofol without the patient being monitored by an EKG, which sounds an alarm when the patient's pulse drops too low. No EKG was found in the house.

I believe the Dr. Conrad Murray is at fault in the death of Michael Jackson. I believe that he administered the lethal drug and he knew MJ was dead long before he called 911. I also belive he wanted MJ to be taken to the hospital because the LA cops would have secured the house then instead of hours later. I believe he tried to cover up what he had done. Dr Conrad Murray gave MJ all drugs found in his system and then gave a drug that should not be used outside of the hospital. He should have remembered his oath "FIRST DO NO HARM" to a patient--no matter if MJ asked for a drug or not.
Thanks for your time.

So who thinks the doctor will actually have to face any jail time?? In a few months to a year I bet this will all die down and the Doctor will get a slap on the rest and have his license to practice taken away.

I have to say, it seems like the LAPD just doesn't give a crap. No arrest, a month to search office, no autopsy report....so what is it, just another dead man to them??

LAPD GET YOUR FREAKIN ASS IN GEAR!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??

Disgusted by the system.

Sounds like gross negligence by Dr. Murray. Guess he'll be making friends with Bubba in the big house before long. Now...does he cut a plea or does he go to trial???
