Conrad Murray -- I Tried Saving Michael Jackson

3/22/2010 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray claims he was honest with paramedics the day Michael Jackson died and did everything he could to save Jackson's life.

Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson

Dr. Murray is responding to a story which cites a paramedic report, claiming Dr. Murray never told the EMTs he administered Propofol to the singer just before he stopped breathing.

The rep for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff tells TMZ, "We are currently in receipt of almost 2800 pages of discovery from the Los Angeles prosecutors and we have been assured that more is coming. What we have does not include this 'official' paramedics report, cited in the News of the World story."

The rep says Dr. Murray will not address the accusation -- at least not now -- because Chernoff hasn't seen the report.

The rep is quick to add, "We can say unequivocally that Dr. Murray did everything in his power to save Michael Jackson's life and that he fully cooperated with both the paramedics at the scene and physicians at UCLA Medical Center."

DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING THIS IDIOT HAS TO SAY. IF HE TRIED TO SAVE MICHAEL HE WOULD HAVE CALLED 911 RIGHT AWAY AND BEGAN CPR RIGHT AWAY BUT HE CHOSE TO WAIT SO LONG BEFORE HE CALLED. IF MURRAY HAD BEGAN CPR AND CALLED 911 RIGHT THAN MICHAEL WOULD STILL BE ALIVE TODAY. HE NEEDS TO SUFFER THE SAME WAY HE MADE MICHAEL JACKSON SUFFERED. THIS INDIVIDUAL AND OTHERS TOOK MICHAEL AWAY FROM HIS CHILDREN, SO IN MY OPINION MURRAY AND ANYBODY ELSE WHO WAS INVOLVED NEEDS TO SUFFER THE SAME FATE AS MICHAEL DID. DON'T HAVE SYMPATHY ON THIS DOCTOR OR OTHER DOCTORS WHO DO THIS TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. HOPE THEY ALL SUFFER THE SAME WAY THEY DO OTHERS AND GOD WILL MAKE THEM PAY FOR WHAT THEY DO IN HIS TIME.

You could have said no when he asked. Maybe he would have found another doctor, but, maybe that doctor would have had some common sense!!!!!! Neglect!!!!! You thought of yourself that day instead of trying to save Michael. If you really tried to save him, WHY did you NOT tell the paramedics EVERYTHING you gave him???

Murray's reps are full of propofol! How did Murray fully cooperate with the paramedic?
1st He didn't tell them what he actually give Michael, and 2nd he wouldn't pronounce Michael dead at the scene!
Just pure deception all the way around the death of Michael.
I say, his ass should be up the creek!
Why is he not arrested yet?

So far, existing facts - even by the doctor's statement - indicate he found MJ dead and immediately started an attempt to cover up what he had done. This man is 100% culpable in MJ's death. Where was the oximeter? No monitoring and administering Propofol for heavy surgeries in a home. BASTARD.

This man did everything he could to cover his ass first and foremost. I believe he knew Michael was already dead, he also knew his administering all those medications and not monitoring his breathing would be putting himself in a bad light. Especially when the Propofol is a medication reserved for in surgery only the man knew he was so screwed and I believe took his time before even calling for help. I also believe the reason he supposedly did CPR on the bed was because he knew Michael was already dead. This man needs to pay and stop trying to spin things through the media. He should never be allowed to practice medicine again and serve a long sentence.

Conrad Murray tried to save his own *ss, not Michael's ... because he had already died.

It has always been my opinion from the beginning that Michael had long since passed away by the time the ambulance arrived which seems incredibly sad but realistic given the number of excuses, incorrect timelines, misinformation and now alleged omitted information, etc., from Conrad Murray.

What I am struggling with is whether or not Conrad Murray is a fall guy for a grander scheme (seems unlikely) or is he just an incompetent doctor? Either way, he is greedy, immoral and is responsible for the death of his patient.

This man tried nine ways from Sunday to cover his tracks; there is no verdict other than “guilty”.
