Conrad Murray Lawyer -- It's Just Police Theory

8/24/2009 11:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, just released the following statement regarding the affidavit we published today, in which authorities recount Dr. Murray's blow-by-blow account of the day Michael Jackson died:

"Much of what was in the search warrant affidavit is factual. However, unfortunately, much is police theory. Most egregiously, the timeline reported by law enforcement was not obtained through interviews with Dr. Murray, as was implied by the affidavit. Dr. Murray simply never told investigators that he found Michael Jackson at 11:00 am not breathing.

He also never said that he waited a mere ten minutes before leaving to make several phone calls. In fact, Dr. Murray never said that he left Michael Jackson's room to make phone calls at all."

Did the LAPD video tape Dr. Murray when they questioned him?

Oh really? Too bad there's 47 minutes of cell phone records, witnesses saying Dr. Murray came downstairs asking Michael Jr. to administer CPR - and of course the reckless and lethal drug injections every two hours.

There was NO WAY Michael could have demanded for more drugs - he was knocked out solid with those dosages.

Yeah right.

Murray also never knew that MJ had problems with drug use in the past, despite it being public record.

Also, the lawyer doesn't appear to deny that what the police have stated as fact is incorrect. Just as he didn't deny that Murray had given MJ propofol.

Of course Murray didn't tell them that,but they are.....detectives!
The usual defense attorney stuff of splitting hairs, when the underlying premise is still make of whole cloth.

And I can almost believe he didn't leave MJ's room to make phone calls, but it was a BIG room, and I can see how he might be in another adjacent room so to speak, get on the phone and lose track of time. That he was doing this at all was a crime....that it became ROUTINE to put MJ under and leave AT ALL says much more about his negligence....this is wrong so many ways from Sunday

no way    

that's all they take exception to?
In my opinion it wasn't the propofol that killed him, but the doctor experimenting. The propofol obviously had been working for him. Micheal just wanted to sleep not be some quack's science experiment.

Guilty of giving too many drugs to patient. Guilty of administering propofol outside of proper medical facility and w/out credentials. However, MJ is also guilty of allowing all these drugs to drip into his body. But, ultimately, his doctor(s) should have admitted him into rehab instead of administering to him lethal doses of drugs. Shame on all these enablers that consider themselves doctors. $ can buy pretty much anything or anyone.

Murray said none of those drugs knocked MJ out, was he lying? Couldn't MJ have such a high tolerance those drugs didn't put him to sleep?

Even if Jackson demanded more drugs, it's irrelevant.

If Jackson had asked Murray to shoot him in the head, it doesn't make it okay for Murray to do so.

Murray is a doctor. He is bound not only by his medical oath to first do no harm, but also held to a higher standard. As a doctor you don't simply give patients what they asked for. Can you imagine the mayhem. That's not how the doctor-patient relationship works. Period. Any doctor will tell you that.

Jackson may have been paying Murray, but he was still a patient - NOT a client.
