Who's to Blame in Jackson's Death?

8/25/2009 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonWe've been telling you for weeks Propofol killed Michael Jackson and authorities had their sights set on Dr. Conrad Murray. The affidavit to the Houston search warrant makes it clear -- Dr. Murray fueled Jackson with multiple drugs before he stopped breathing and Propofol was the crowning blow.

So the questions -- did Dr. Murray come clean when he spoke with the LAPD or is it even worse than we thought? Why was he on the phone for 47 minutes after Jackson stopped breathing? Why did he wait so long to call 911? Why did he refuse to pronounce Jackson dead at UCLA? Why did Dr. Murray disappear for a day?

And the bigger question -- is Dr. Murray the patsy -- taking the heat for years of prescription abuse at the hands of various doctors?

What do you think?

ALL of you Know who pulled the trigger. It's no secret. Been here talking it through 2months. Researched it everyday. Don't believe the meida Black and White. Trying to make distract you once again from the truth. Again and again. After all this time.
Even in death, Michael cannot catch a break. Will the media black and white print the truth? Who pulls the strings?

523. They did it because of the 02 Tour, and the Jackson tour was off...Joe was broke...and MJ hadn't helped Randy with a "loan"....

That's syrup dripping off the pancake.
But isn't that blood dripping off the 02 ticket onto JJs lip?

Randy/Tohme/DiLeo/Jermaine

AEG/AllGood/Neverland-Follow the money.

Vegas-What's happening in Vegas?

Why is the media keeping us focused on the drug story once again? We discussed this angle for 6 weeks. Already figured out this part of the story.

Why don't they talk about Jermaine house hunting for a $20million dollar home? Accepting awards for Michael Joseph Jackson in his own name? Talk about Randy being at the house the morning Michael Joseph Jackson died?
Talk about Tohme firing the staff at Michael's rented mansion?
Who was Dr. Murray calling?
Who was the aide?
Why have the police not spoken to the two employees who may be able to shed light on what happened.

The media has the public focused on the drugs once again. Stop listening to them

Can the media tell the truth? Who pulls their strings?

Does anybody care what really happened?

Keep Searching for the Truth!

If Michael really did have Lupus, what is the name of the Dr. that treated him?

Certainly not a dermatologist like Dr. Klein, Lupus is an auto-immune disease. I doubt he really had it, especially if they don't identify the Dr. that diagnosed it, and treated him for it.

On LKL Arnold Klein said he diagnosed Michael as having Discoid lupus erythematosus. Michael also was seeing Rheumatologist Allan Metzger, this has been all over the news.

Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is a chronic skin condition of sores with inflammation and scarring favoring the face, ears, and scalp and at times on other body areas. These lesions develop as a red, inflamed patch with a scaling and crusty appearance. The center areas may appear lighter in color with a rim darker than the normal skin. When lesions occur in hairy areas such as the beard or scalp, permanent scarring and hair loss can occur. A small percentage of patients with discoid lupus can develop disease of the internal organs, which can make the person sick. Children and people with many spots are usually at more risk of this. If a doctor suspects this condition, a skin biopsy needs to be done to confirm the diagnosis because other conditions can look like discoid lupus erythematosus. If the skin biopsy shows discoid lupus erythematosus, then further blood testing may be indicated.

CLICK HERE TO SEE LARGER VIEWThe exact cause is unknown, but it is thought to be autoimmune with the body's immune system incorrectly attacking normal skin. This condition tends to run in families. Females outnumber males with this condition 3 to 1. In some patients with discoid lupus erythematosus, sunlight and cigarette smoking may make the lesions come out.

Cortisone ointment applied to the skin in the involved areas will often improve the lesions and slow down their progression. Cortisone injections into the lesions will also treat discoid lupus and usually are more effective than the ointment form of cortisone. Alternatively, calcineurin inhibitors, pimecrolimus cream or tacrolimus ointment may be used. Imiquimod has also been reported to be helpful in a few patients. If the lesions are becoming unsightly and one really feel something more needs to be done, a drug named Plaquenil will often improve the condition. Patients on Plaquenil need eye exams once a year to prevent damage to the retina of the eye and periodic blood work. Closely related drugs (Aralen, Quinacrine) may be more effective but have more side effects. Other drugs, such as Accutane and Soriatane, can also be used.

Where does personal responsibility come in on this story? Yes the doctors are responsible but so is Jackson. I've had surgeries and been given several bottles of painkillers. Guess what? Most of these bottles of RX were thrown away years after my surgery because I didn't allow myself to get addicted to them. The larger question is why did Jackson get addicted? Was he trying to kill pain from injuries/burns or was he trying to kill himself? Everyone knows that his life was a trainwreck and he himself knew he had abused those boys. He probably found that hard to live with. I don't think he was without a conscience but he probably had a lot of self hatred and was self-medicating himself. The Doctors who put $$ over ethics will and should pay with their licenses being taken from them and in the case of the last doc with some serious jailtime. Both Jackson and the Docs are to blame in this one but Jackson is the one most responsible and he got what he wanted in the end I think.

iclover, I think your remarks have a lot of truth to them. Most fans just do not want to believe those things about their "idol"

It is a sad story

I cannot even begiin to comprehend how Michael is responsible for his own death. Did he get up and administer the propofol through the I.V. himself while he was out cold? That must be it.

Oh, wait, it must be the fact that he was a drug addict as some of you have so eloquently put it, even though they have not found evidence to support your theories.

We still haven't had an official release of the toxicology report or the coroner's findings yet.

I'm interested to see how they will determine that after he gave himself all the drugs to sleep and the 25mg of propofol that he gave himself a lethal dose while he was unconscious. This should be entertaining. And please don't try to explain to me how.. because I am being facetious and sarcastic.

Ivy, that is a very sensible and thoughtful post. I agree with what you said. Dr. Murray should be held accountable, but there were years of misdoings going on before he ever came on the scene that contributed to this.

I also think Dr. Murray was very happy to have this $150,000 a month job, and get to go on tour with MJ

Della, if Dr. Murray is arrested, I think you will get all your answers about MJ's drug use if the defense team does their work well. Stay tuned.

I am well aware of how Michael died. If you follow my post on here, you will know what I think about the whole situation.

I am just frustrated that they keep pushing this drug story over and over and over and over and over again. it's getting very old.
I do believe that if they indict Murray, then the truth will come out. That may be the only way.

I also pray everyday that the real culprits will be brought to justice in this matter.

I'm just disgusted with this right now, and angry.

Keep searching for the truth!

Think About It... You Be the Judge    


I hope they aren't all leaving town at the same time. I'm sure LAPD
will being having questions that need to be answered.
Like:
What all did the 8 movers and 2 moving vans remove from his home?
Why did they all go through his house the day of his death?
Why did Katherine call the nanny and ask about the bank accounts the day of his death?

Why weren't the children's items not removed?
Why did Katherine Jackson have to go to Target that night to buy
sleeping bags and toys for the children?
Why was Joe Jackson and Michael's Brothers so upset with Michael
because of the May 18th meeting at the hotel?
Why was the old manager upset with Michael about not doing the
Jackson 5 Tour of 2010?
This manager nolonger worked for Michael, so why is he still acting
as if he had his business interest at heart.
Michael fired him at the end of May.. Why?
Michael didn't want any part of the pay for view of any of his
concerts.
They sued Michael in the early part of June 11th for not doing the
concerts with the Jackson 5... By his family?

The burial of Michael had to be put on hold because the Jackson's are out of town doing their own shows while their Brother lays in wait at Forest Lawn..

Sad... What next...
I'll be boycotting anything of Michael Jackson from now on... The only people that are making money is the Jackson Compound. I refuse to support grown children that have only live off Michael all these years...

THEY SAY THAT WHEN THE PARAMEDICS WENT TO THE ROOM WHERE MJ WAS IT WAS VERY HOT.
NOBODY KNOWS THE EXACT TIME OF MJ'S DEATH.wHEN SOMEBODY DIES HIS BODY TAKES THE ROOM TEMPERATURE. DID DR MURRAY TURNED THE HEAT ON TOO HIGH DELIBERATELY BECAUSE MJ WAS DEAD MUCH LONGER THAN HE SAIS?
IT IS TRUE THAT THE WHOLE STORY DOESNT FIT. AND I WONDER IF WE'RE EVER GOING TO FIND THE TRUTH...
