Fire Officials: MJ Emergency Tape is Bogus

2/24/2010 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another Michael Jackson hoax -- this time it's all over a recording that's being reported as a transmission from the paramedics who took MJ to UCLA on the day he died.

The recording features a man saying "Patient is Michael Jackson, the pop star singer ... we should be there in five minutes. It doesn't look good."

But TMZ spoke to L.A. City Fire Dept. Captain Steve Ruda who told us, "It is not our conversation. It is not any of the paramedics who treated Michael Jackson."

We're told there are several indicators on the tape which show it could not have originated from an L.A. City Fire employee.

We're told officials are not supposed to name the patient and the terminology used in the recording is not consistent with terms used by the department.

I totally disagree with you for 2 reasons:
1. Michael was a public figure. The media and everyone else is talking about him; the fans will too.
2. We don't have a RIGHT to comment on this story? You must not live in the US or are completely ignorant of our constitution and the bill of rights! We HAVE A FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. We can AND WILL comment on anything we want to that is protected by that amendment! No one is making terrorist threats, or stalking anyone, or threatening the President, making hate speech as far as racial, etc issues here. OUR SPEECH IS PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT. WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO COMMENT ON WHATEVER THE F@CK WE WANT.

So why don't you take your little (or fat as the case may be) a$$ and walk it right out of here. If you don't like what is being said - LEAVE.

Besides Michael's obvious talent, it's his beautiful smile and those big brown eyes that I'll miss the most.

RIP Michael

Oh you're welcome Deb. I watched parts of it, but not all. It sure did seem like this show was casting doubt on Murray! I kept thinking....how is it possible that they are able to broadcast this show before a trial has occurred? I would think that this show would tend to taint the jury pool. Or...maybe this is what everyone is being fed from the media....

This is a very serious matter, not to be discussed by anyone other than the family and authorities.

Go and get a life and forget this story. You cant change it and sure cant do anything about it.

******************************************

You must be joking. Michael Jackson has been known all over the world for the last 40 years. He's a public figure - perhaps the most famous one who ever lived. Certainly the public, the very people who made him famous to begin with, have every right to be interested in and comment on this story about how he died about 30 years prematurely.

And I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for the world to forget this story. Experts have ruled that Michael died at the hands of another person -- that's murder -- or at least manslaughter. You're right that the world can't bring Michael back to life or control the outcome of the investigation, but people certainly have the right to be interested in how Michael left so suddenly and the actions of the "doctor" who was with him when it happened.

Yeah, about that Chico - I am kind of dense sometimes - I looked all over the site and only found 2 segments, the "sneak peeks" that we have seen already. Do you remember where you found it? There's a lot of stuff on that site! If not don't go to a lot of trouble finding it, it will show up on YouTube

The VH1 show was nothing....We have more information then they gave you...Just the same old same old....They whole show is on You Tube in different parts...they just made into 1 half hour show...

Not for nothing (I know grammer) but they could have done better if they read the posts on here LOL !!! Better investigators!
Take a bow all!

I was able to watch 4 segments at 3:20 seconds apiece on my pc. I clicked on the MJ preview, and I could see them all, but there were advertisements in between.

You must have a miserable life. One day you will die, and if you are lucky no one will laugh when they "see the dead freak".

Michael had his share (and others' shares, too) of troubles, but in his heart he was more loving, kind, compassionate, gentle, caring than you will obviously ever be.

I pity you.

Hey Roe...
That is what I was saying chatting with others on Facebook, NOTHING that we did NOT already know! I figured though the clip they showed with TMZ and Klein would give the HOAXERS something else to talk about....they will think this is fake too!LOLOLOL
