Conrad Murray -- Waiting for the Call

2/3/2010 2:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad MurrayThe L.A. County District Attorney's Office has told Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers they will call just before Dr. Murray is charged with the death of Michael Jackson and a surrender will take place almost immediately thereafter ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... as of 8:35 AM PT, the D.A. has not made the call.

As we reported yesterday, Dr. Murray planned to surrender today and appear in arraignment court after being charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. The ball is in the D.A.'s court.

Dr. Murray is waiting.

To try to justify Murrays actions is not only foolish but dangerous.
It's totally irrelevant whether MJ begged him for the drug or not.

MJ was not a simple addict. He had a problem with PRESCRIPTION drugs. He was well known for his strong anti-drug stance when he was younger and it is doubtful that he would have ever sought out illegal drugs. However, when a doctor prescribes medication, there is an assumption that the medicine is not only safe, but necessary.

MJ suffered from genuine medical conditions such as anxiety, lupus and chronic insomnia and was initially legitimately prescribed medication to alleviate these conditions. The doctors involved were negligent as they should have carefully monitored the medication levels to ensure it did not reach addiction levels. Therefore, the medical profession have to accept responsibility for his initial addiction, for accelerating that addiction throughout his life and ultimately for his death.

Most doctors regularly receive irrational requests from their patients. To justify Murrays actions means you agree that doctors should be free to concede to their patients wishes. Even when those demands may not ultimately be in the patients best interest.

Murray owed a duty of care to MJ. He knew that the levels of medication were excessive. He was aware that MJ had previously spent time in rehab and had a psychological addition.

So, Murray had a choice. He could have ethically advised rehab or therapy. Yet he simply (like every other doctor in MJ's life) fed the cash cow. Murray went far beyond being negligent, way beyond being reckless. An involuntary manslaughter charge is derisory for such a crime.

Sadly, if all the doctors in MJ's past had practiced within their code of ethics, then we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Let us hope that at least finally, one doctor, will be made accountable for his actions.

87. 35. I'm not sure if I understand your American justice system. Have I got this right?
Firstly, a rich man can be merely accused of lewd acts by anyone seeking to get money. Without any credible evidence he is found innocent. Yet he still forfeits his career, home, reputation, financial standing and becomes a figure of constant ridicule.
On the other hand, a quack doctor in pursuit of money can ignore his professional ethics to such an extent that he kills his patient. He will receive minimal jail time, and probably make a fortune from book, interview and film deals afterwards. And its even doubtful that he will be banned from practising medicine in the future.
Forget legalities, this is offends common morality.
Now, locking Murray in a room with Joe Jackson for an hour would see justice served. That 80 year old pit bull would teach Murray the meaning of responsibility.

Yup, but you forgot that the same wealthy man can buy the silence of those that accuse him.

Yup, but I think you forgot that MJ knew that a mere ALLEGATION can ruin an entertainers career. Given that, it is hardly surprising he tried to bury any gossip before it got out of hand. Reports say he was initially adamant about not paying off his accusers but could not cope with the stress and eventually let his insurance settle the claim.
Also, remember the accusers demanded a financial settlement - not criminal liability.
So, any parent of a child who spent any time alone with Jackson could reap a huge financial gain by claiming abuse. The money would have been so tempting to some and has to cast doubt upon the credibility of their allegations.

Just as paying that money has to cast doubt upon the innocence of the accused. If more fans could only admit this, the rest of their argument would be taken more seriously. I understand your point on not wanting the allegation to get out, but once it was made public he should have done everything he could to prove his innocence.

And thanks for being controlled in your discussion. That's refreshing for this site.

For those (outsiders) denigrating our country and it's legal system, please for God's sake never utilize the Internet (which you wouldn't have access to if it were not for the American genius' and our brand of Democracy) or visit beautiful country. Instead...attempt to encourage your relatives who have immigrated here to return to their original native lands.

8. He will not be put away for good. He did not cause the nightmare that MJ had turnrd himself into. The man was just wasted and that disgusting white skin he walked around in made him look like a skinned cat......

I never thought about it that way..but you're right.."look like a skinned cat"....it's the fake cheekbones...you're right on...cat's have that same dominant cheekbone structure but at the same time the sunken in look.....

Keen observation milly.
And the unnecessary overlydone skin bleaching jobs put on the final ghastly touches.

Miss MJ    

LOVED your comments, brigha uk, and yes, you got it EXACTLY right. As for you, limey nutter, and anyone else out there who thinks MJ is a pedophile, are you aware that in BOTH supposed molestation cases, BOTH parents of the supposed victims were of questionable character, BOTH had police records of fraud and assault, BOTH had the SAME LAWYER, and in one case, the father gave his 11year old son SODIUM PENTATHOL (what a model DAD), once looked at as a truth serum, TODAY THEY KNOW IT IS A HALLUCINOGEN. If Michael Jackson was such a pedophile, wouldn't more people have come out and said something, given the THOUSANDS of children who stayed at Neverland???? MJ's financial records are now out there for the WORLD to see....if there were more "payoffs" WE WOULD KNOW ABOUT IT!! Would he REALLY have victimized a 13 year old CANCER PATIENT????

There are PLENTY of people out there sniffing around trying to make a fast million, why not pick on a vulnerable, trusting MILLIONAIRE like Michael Jackson??? Don't you get it??? And why did the father of one of the "victims" just kill himself? And why did this supposed "victim", now in his 20's EMANCIPATE HIMSELF FROM HIS PARENTS????? Because they FORCED HIM TO LIE SO THEY COULD MAKE MONEY OFF OF MICHAEL JACKSON, a person they USED, a person who only wanted to make sick children HAPPY. You, limey nutter, need to learn some facts of the case before making insinuations that are false!
