Dr. Conrad Murray -- Life Is a Carnival

2/14/2010 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Long before he may or may not have been responsible for the death of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray was just another guy enjoying Carnival in Trinidad.

Conrad Murray

These photos were take in 2005 during a two-week trip to Trinidad and Tobago. He was down there with a few of his close guy friends -- and a few attractive female friends as well.

Michael Jackson Fun Fact
: Right around the time these photos were taken, Michael Jackson's second child molestation case was beginning.

Why do TMZ keep updating us on Murrys life??? We dont care what he did 5 years ago! TMZ are just tryin to start arguments....
Poor MJ while Murry was out havin fun Michael was going through the worst time of his life, its so sad thinking back to that time.
But as the bible says:(God) 'I will wipe away every tear you have cried and take away all the pain you have suffered on earth'.
Lets just hope thats what happens for MJ up there(heaven)

60. I've made a decision. I come in here everyday only to see if there are any news on anything Michael Jackson, and maybe chat a bit with the sane people who still visit.

But I can't stand this heartlessness towards Michael and this campaign pro Murray. Michael is dead and never did anything to Harvey Levin, and Murray is the guy who gave him the drugs that killed him. It's too mean and shallow.

So I'll come along only once a week, scroll down and see if anything happened, and leave again.

Bye.

I'm about thisclose to doing the same thing. TMZ you're on your last legs with MJ fans. You don't want to lose your bread and butter do you? Stop being such pricks and show some damn respect to a deceased man who was never found guilty of anything!!! Obviously Harvey doesn't really believe in the justice system...that's why he's a tabloid trash reporter and not a lawyer.

Michael Jackson fans, let's stop "hitting" and commenting on negative stories about Michael, or any stories on Conrad Murray that have nothing to do with the murder case.

The TMZ staff will do whatever it takes to get hits and comments, as will most media sources these days. They do not care whether what they say is damaging, insulting, or even the truth, as long as they make money. Disgusting, but true.

We're making them rich for making derogatory remarks about Michael and for trying to make Conrad Murray into a celebrity! Look at all the stories about Conrad Murray. Unbelievable!

I believe if TMZ, and all the other media sources, were reporting fair and unbiased stories about Michael, they would get just as many hits and comments (of course, still, the negative, but that is expected with someone who is as loved as Michael. Don't they realize there are millions of Michael Jackson fans out there that are hungry for positive stories about Michael, and are waiting for vindication.

We have to stop letting them profit from the disgusting, unethical, and unlawful lies they state or imply. If they start profiting from the positive, then that is what they will report.

I know I'm expecting too much, just thought I'd try, it makes me feel better.

Anyone with a good heart and an open mind could look past Michael's faults and see him for the kind, loving and innocent person he really was, and there is NOTHING anyone could ever say or do that could make me, or millions of others, change our minds about him.

Just as Michael's fans are showing Dr. Murray respect, we expect TMZ to do the same. The "fun fact" is a really sensitive subject and it's not a fun fact.

Let me ask this - would you pay a physician $150000 per month to kill you?
I am for justice.
Murray is a cruel, evil person. Take one look at his lifestyle and you can see he lacks the basic good principles by which to live. He is a gutter MD.
After this he can return to be his mother's assistant as a maid.

TMZ....YOU ALL ARE TURNING INTO "TABLOID TRASH". IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE NO LONGER A RELIABLE NEWS SOURCE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND THE OTHER MORONS OUT THERE IN THE MEDIA, IS THAT YOU ALL ALWAYS SEEM TO GET THE NEWS BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE DOES. BUT IN FACT THE NEWS THAT YOU ALL REPORT ARE EITHER IRRELEVANT OR COMPLETELY FALSE!

#70-Angela--Where are those MJ fans that are showing respect for the doctor? I must have missed those posts. While I think its tacky to be showing these pictures now I still believe in Innocent until Proven guilty.
#66-Claire--Are you for real? Is this picture so offensive to you because it was taken 5 years ago at the same time MJ was walking into court everyday for some very serious charges? Do you also think Dr. Murray had no right to be happy in 2005 while MJ's behavior brought about those charges? Or worse, do you think MJ's behavior and the ensuing criminal case against MJ was Dr. Murray's fault too ?
#64-Danger Baby--Did we read something in this article or miss something in this article about the picture of Dr. Murray having a life before his unfortunate decision to act as MJ's doctor? Your post makes no sense at all to me.
To all of you MJ fans, think about this. Dr. Murray was suppose to be paid $150,000.00 per month to give in to anything MJ wanted in terms of drugs. And he was also being paid $150,000.00 to make sure he was paid to keep MJ alive. So for Dr. Murray having MJ die meant he was no longer going to be receiving that paycheck. Wasn't it in the best interest of Dr. Murray to make sure his patient stayed alive ? MJ was his bread and butter, so surely none of you can really think that Dr. Murray murdered/killed MJ, it makes no sense.
None of us know exactly what MJ was up to prior to his death, but you've all hung out Dr. Murray as the only one responsible for MJ's death. I personally believe that Dr. Murray didn't do anything that would cause MJ's death. I think MJ was popping pills on the side when the doctor wasn't looking, I think MJ was so sleep deprived and the medication that Dr. Murray was giving him wasn't working that he took extra doses himself, therefore Dr. Murray's account would be closer to the truth. If anyone knows what it feels like to not be able to sleep, you think by taking more its going to finally knock you out and you'll get a good nights sleep. Thats not what happened to MJ. Nothing Dr. Murray was working and MJ took it upon himself to push the envelope and take extra. Sometimes taking more has the exact opposite effect. Anyone with a sleep disorder probably knows that already. There's nothing worse than a bad nights sleep or little to no sleep is draining, so once those medications weren't helping him, he was helping himself to the extra's. Of course theres no proof of that at the moment, but lets see how it comes out in court. The dosages Dr. Murray gave versus the amount in his system. If they don't match then theres a really good chance that it was MJ himself that overdosed himself, therefore reasonable doubt, therefore aquittal for Dr. Murray.

Verdict Of The Court    

Did Wacko Jacko have an actual doctor diagnosed sleep disorder??? If so, which doctor diagnosed it and when??? I personally think Wacko Jacko was so hopped up on drugs that the drugs themselves were the very reason he couldn't sleep. Elvis Presley's bodyguards said that Elvis reached the point in his drug intoxication that he needed drugs to BOTH go to sleep and wake back up.
