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?

Michael Jackson is to blame for his own death. I say open that casket and cuff him.

I think he was the patsy for Tohme, Barrack and Anschutz personally, especially when you see how they were linked in this article written before Michaed died...

Here in the UK we have a law that forbids "assisted suicide" that in my opinion is what happened to MJ

He knew he was addicted as did his Doctor, and many Doctors before him, this is a crime, and should be treated as such.

Shame MJ lost his life, but all addicts know the risks they take, and MJ and his many Doctors knew the risks they were taking also.
PROSECUTE and PUT THE FEAR OF PRISON INTO ALL THAT TAKES THESE RISKS, IF NOT FOR THEMSELVES THAN FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN, AND FAMILIES THAT ARE SUFFERING THEIR LOSS, THEY ARE NOW FREE OF THIS WORLD, BUT THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES WILL SUFFER THE PAIN OF LOSS UNTIL THEIR DYING DAY. THIS IS A CRIME SO PUNISH THOSE THAT HAVE ASSISTED.

I can't help but thinking that if doctors went down--that solid investigations had been made into the Rush Limbaugh debacle, then the Anna Nicole Smith, the Ledger case, and so forth, Michael would be alive. The only way to prevent future abuses is to convict doctors who are in the end drug pushers.

The AMA needs to get on board as well making strict regulations against doctor/patient socialization and "live in" doctors--this is highly unethical; limiting a doctor's ability to write any psychotropic Rx to say five times, after which the patient must undergo further psychiatric or psychological evaluation in lieu of pharmaceutical care; and creating a national database for a history of drug protocal linked to each patient to avoid patients who "doctor shop".

15. TMZ, who was at the house when MJ died???

It's been reported that Tohme Tohme fired everyone at house and in LV, can you confirmed.

It's been reported that MJ was afraid of Tohme and fired him on May 5, 2009.

There's no report from MJ Personal Assistant?

Where's the survelliance tapes and music that was on the hard drive????

We know that Tohme returned $5.5 million back to the estate!!!!

Good points HumanNature - why did Tohme sack people when he had been sacked himself back in May?
Who was in the house when Michael died??
And where is his assistant now also called Michael? Did he work for Tohme??

Michael Jackson was going to die at the hands of a doctor, unfortunately for Dr. Murray, he ended up being the one.

Probably Dr. Murray didn't know what he was getting into, giving up his practice to treat one rich patient for $150,000 a month. I guess all that money being thrown at him sure looked a lot easier than dealing with trying to collect from Medicare and health insurance companies all day in his day-to-day medical practice.

I think Dr. Murray should have walked away from this all, once he saw how Michael Jackson was a drug abuser, and demanded him to treat him with certain drugs. He should have left, and returned to his medical practice. It's not worth losing your medical license, let alone all the legal liabilities, just for one patient.

how come you didn't put his dad down for "who do you think kille michael", you should have entered his father because he made him nuts in the first place. If he had a normal life it would have never happened.

How sickening to hear that 77% think Michael was responsible for his own death. If this were a suicide - then obviously he'd be responsible - but this was a HOMICIDE!!!

Is it Jasmine Fiore's death her fault for marrying some jerk? Was it Nicole Simpson's fault?

Was it Martin Luther King's fault when someone else pulled a trigger that ended his life?

Homicide means death at the hand of another. Regardless of his prescription med problem, Michael's death was due to gross and reckless actions by Dr. Murray!!!!

Not to mention all the people who saw dollar signs at his demise, Sony, some of the Jackson family members (Jermaine & Joe), Dr. Tohme Tohme, etc.

Michael's case is the same as Britney Spears, except she has a family who intervened before the bloodsucking Lufti killed her.

Lufti kept drugging Britney & distancing her from her family & everyone. Same goes with Michael.

Dr. Tohme Tohme, Dr. Murray, AEG, Sony and Jermaine Jackson have A LOT of 'splainin to do.

I just wish someone would've done a Daddy Spears on Michael.

Isn't this all just so sad? I just WILL NOT accept that ANY Doctor has the right to prescribe and administer enough drugs to KILL ANYONE. They have a DUTY TO SAVE LIFE. In Switzerland you can go to a clinic for assisted suicide NOT in America and NOT in the UK YET. NO DOCTOR SHOULD GIVE ENOUGH DRUGS TO KILL. End of story. Maybe Michael had had enough. I don't know. Did his family TRY to help him or did he reject their efforts. I don't know. NOBODY KNOWS. I am just so sad that Michael struggled so much with his life when he gave us so much, had so much genius and talent and really NEEDED TO BE LOVED. I just wish he could have got to talk to ORDINARY PEOPLE who could have helped him instead of this CIRCUS of folks around him out to make a buck, pulling him every which way but lose. I miss him so much , so much, I love him so much. I am so sad without him. I hope he knows how much we loved him and I hope all the crap that is written about him stops. Please let's all let him rest in peace now. Don't know how to face this birthday of his coming up and the buriel. Just have to put my trust in something stronger than I am. God Bless you Michael. DOCTORS.......STOP KILLING PEOPLE AND GIVING OUT LETHAL PRESCRIPTIONS. I CAN'T TAKE THIS WHY DID HE WAIT SO LONG BEFORE CALLING 911? WHY DID HE ASK PRINCE MICHAEL INTO THE ROOM? WHY THE DELAY? WHY HE SAYS HE DIDN'T KNOW THE ADDRESS? THIS IS ALL JUST UNACCEPTABLE. The Dr. HAS to be held RESPONSIBLE in SOME WAY.

Maggie: Its just a conversation, if we had to be geniuses in the field of everything we spoke about we would never have a conversation. Most of the stories in here are geared to get some rise out of you or feedback, if you don't want to participate then what are you doing in here? Why are you even reading this stuff?
I have heard the story a million times, on TV, in the newspapers and on talk radio, you mean I shouldn't have formed some opinion? I thought Murray was responsible from the beginning, he was the last one to administer his drugs and thats what killed him, what the others did is another story . If Dr Murray had not given him the IV full of drugs Michael would not have died. Just because someone is addicted to drugs doesn't mean you have to give it to them, you could say no. I don't think it takes and Einstein to figure out these Doctors were making a fortune off Jackson, even though it was against the law to do so, if an addict can get it he will take it, if a Doctor doesn't give it to him he can't get it, at least not from a Doctor. Dr. Murray needed money and he used Michael to get it. That is just my opinion and we are all entitled to one.
